Met Gala 2015: The Fashion Low Down

Met Gala Blog

Last night was the annual fundraising Met Gala in New York. Here at AX Paris we love a good sneak peak behind the scenes of the event and some of our fave celebs didn’t fail to keep us posted. With the theme of ‘China’ here are some of our faves;

First up is Kendall Jenner, rocking a Calvin Klein Collection dress, in the custom made jade number, encrusted with crystals and featuring sexy side cut outs with lace-up detailing she sure turned heads. We love how she’s kept her hair and make-up simple to ensure all eyes are on the dress, with that killer runway-bod how could they not be?!

Another one to turn heads for the right reasons was Kendall’s half-sister Kim Kardashian, who wore a semi-sheer embellished Roberto Cavalli dress. The star proved once again how body confident she is with just delicate pieces of lace covering her dignity. Like Kendall, her make-up was kept simple and her locks were pulled back into a tight pony-tail.

Kim’s new BFF J.Lo also showed off her curves in a Versace number in a very sheer beaded gown. Adding colour to the carpet with red beads, J.Lo looked amazing (we’re not jealous at all!). After last year’s event all eyes were on Solange Knowles. Solange rocked an unsual style of dress by Giles, she certainly proved she isn’t one to be afraid to stand out of the crowd in that frock!

Last up, all hail Queen B! Beyonce was the last celeb to arrive on the red carpet, certainly saving the best till last! Donning a body-hugging sheer Givenchy dress dripping in multi-coloured crystals. Her curves were on full display with this sheer number, having everyone in awe! Even husband Jay-Z couldn’t keep his hands off her! Keeping it full on glamour she slicked her blonde hair back in a sleek pony-tail and kept her make-up minimal. Never one to let us down, Beyonce is by far our fave of the night.

We’d love to hear who your fave look of the night was!
