By Deborah Ayoade

Monday night, saw clads of celebrities, designers and editors attend what has been titled fashion’s most glamorous night out; the annual Met Gala. This year the highly anticipated event hosted yearly by American Vogue editor Anna Wintour took place in New York at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This is the night that designers pull out all the stops in order for celebrities to achieve their red carpet looks. The inspired theme to channel this year was ‘White tie and Decorations’. Many of the gowns debuted definitely took on the theme, leaving us with plenty of fashion inspiring images to store in our memory banks.

For one, Blake Lively in that jaw-dropping Gucci ensemble and once again Victoria Beckham proved to be a fashion powerhouse she is, keeping her title as the Queen of minimalism; they ‘less is more’. Let’s not forget the every so risqué songstress Rihanna, who was recently awarded a CFDA Fashion Icon Award earlier this year, the star who is known for taking risks with fashion opted for a sleek and sexy crop top styled gown that bared her ever so envious toned abs. Though, it was Model Karolina Kurkova who stole the show for us in her Marchesa ball gown.
