The marie claire Fashion Team Weigh In On The Met Gala’s Best Dressed

The stars that nailed it

Selena Gomez

Hayley O’Neill, Fashion Office Coordinator: “I like how simple the dress is, yet how pretty the subtle pink hue and delicate embellishments are. I like that she looks youthful and teams it with metallic accessories. Overall a really thought-out look that she looks amazing in.

Doutzen Kroes

Chloe Buttenshaw, Fashion Editor: “I’m loving this classic colour and over the shoulder look…She looks classic and fresh

Alexa Chung

Brittany Henderson, Content Editor: “I’m always a sucker for polka dots, so Alexa Chung’s Diane Von Furstenberg frock is a highlight for me this year. I also appreciate the lack of OTT jewels/hair/make-up.”

Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen

Tara Morris, Market Editor: “I love MK and Ashley’s looks! It would be my total alter ego to dress like this to a formal affair.

Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen

Monica Russell, Fashion Assistant: “Olsen twins: Always true to their own style the twins looked divine in lengths of lace and vintage jewels.”

Rita Ora

Jackie Frank, General Manager, Fashion, Beauty & Health: “Strong, bold, structured and on-trend – loved the red.”

Lily Rose Depp

Bree McDonald, Fashion & News Editor: “I’m voting for Lily Rose Depp. I love the old world shape of her hot pink dress and the addition of that sparkle on the body is such a divine detail. No need for further accessorising.”

Liu Wen

Jana Pokorny, Fashion Director: “I love how the denim translates to the red carpet.”


Clare Press, fashion editor at large: It’s the Met Gala – and this year it’s a celebration one of the most avant-garde designers of all time. Looking safe and pretty doesn’t make sense to me. Look wild like Rihanna did in experimental, wonderful off-the-runway Commes des Garcons? That makes sense.
