"Elegance is not a social distinction but a sensual distinction," - Charles James

Today I wrote second exam from a cute pack of shool-leaving exams. After getting back home, I said to myself: Now, chill. Relax before yesterday, take a breath, give yourself a while with something what makes you happy. And I knew what it would mean. Fashion.
This is how I ended up dipping into fashion websides and choosing best and worst looks from yesterday's red carpet. Why the most popular type of floor covering was in the centre of attention again? The answer is simple and clear. Most beautiful models, most attractive actors, most talented designers and other most-liked or most-hated people in the world gathered in one place. And this place is Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City because one of more important fashion events (besides Fashion Weeks, ofc) - Met Ball aka Met Gala aka Costume Institute Gala, took place there. More or less interested in fashion participants celebrated the opening of Met's new exhibition. Remember last year's Punk Chaos to Couture? So forget it as now the topic is totally different. Today, the whole world is talking about incredibly-talented Anglo-American designer, Charles James. Born in 1906, he was known for wrap-over trousers, ribbon capes, figure-eight skirts or poufs. Enough to see his most famous dresses like Four-Leaf Clover, Butterfly, Tree, Swan or Diamond to feel his style. The expo (as French say) Charles James: Beyond Fashion will last till August 10.
But now, outfits from the red carpet. Before letting you see photos of smiling (or not, like Vicky Beckham) celebrities: one remark (and advice, because we all love 2in1 offers). What's most interesting about this year's Met Gala? It's the fact that the majority of ladies who looked bad  were the ones who usually look fabulous! Alexa Chung, Kristen Dunst, Kate Holmes, even Rita Ora and Kate Upton...they didn't make a right choice. Maybe they got into designer's black books? So I present you photos of best and worst dressed celebs to show coutionary that a famous designer doesn't always mean a fabulous look. Remember kids: sometimes, it's better to choose Topshop.

Beyone and Jay-Z both in Givenchy Haute Couture
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Balmain with the designer Oliver Rousteing
Lupita Nyong'o in Prada
Blake Lively in Gucci Premiere and Ryan Reynolds in Gucci

David Beckham in Ralph Lauren and Victoria Beckham in her own design.
Vicky, we know that you want to show your strength, your independance, but, please,
strike a different pose and show us your smile!

You say: not for Met Ball. I say: still more elegant than a few other celebs attending this event.

I still can't believe she decided to wear THIS. This photo must be a fake.

Lena Dunham in Giambattisa Valli Haute Couture
Kate Upton in Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda
Yes, it's this sexy model.

Let it be clear: it's not about her hair which look totally fabulous.
