We predicted that crop tops were going to be a big trend for Spring and these celebrities seem to think so as well!

2. Blush Tones

Dita Von Teese stayed true to herself and showed off her famous curves in this blush toned Zac Posen gown with red detailing. Kendall Jenner made her first ever appearance at the MET Gala and stunned in a custom Topshop gown.
3. Monochrome Dresses
Hailee Steinfeld, Lily Donaldson, Cara Delevigne
Although the ‘monochrome’ trend has come and gone, it still seems the be the trend of choice for some celebrities. Black and white look chic and simple but still glamorous. Hailee Steinfeld proves that age is no limit when it comes to looking chic and stylish. She wears a Prabal Gurung gown which compliments her figure and doesn’t make her look to old for her age. Lily Donaldson shows off her trim figure in a Burberry gown. Cara Delevigne was the talk of the night in this Stella McCartney black crop top and white pants. Opting for a top and pants instead of a dress, Cara shows off her svelte figure while still managing to look glamorous and elegant.
Emmy Rossum, Karolina Kurkova, Jessica Pare
Sticking with the classic ‘floral’ trend for Spring, these celebrities stunned in floral gowns with gorgeous up dos. Emmy Rossum wore a Carolina Herrera gown. She showed off bright colours and wore her hair up to show off her dress. Karolina Kurkova stunned in a gorgeous Marchesa gown and wore over $1 million worth of Harry Winston diamonds! Jessica Pare wore a Michael Kors gown and like Emmy Rossum, wore her hair up to show off her dress.
While the gorgeous gowns were the talk of the night, and the question “Who are you wearing?” surely would have been uttered multiple times, the celebrities wearing them were equally as stunning. With a star studded turn out and a designer filled red carpet, MET Gala 2014 was surely the place to be.
