Everyone’s buzzing about the 2015 Met Gala – it IS one of the biggest fashion events of the year, after all – but we can’t forget one of the event’s biggest hits with Taylor Swift’s Oscar de la Renta dress last May.
This is a far cry from her much younger-feeling 2013 Met Gala look (which I think could have worked with more posh hair):
Let’s just marvel a bit more at that Oscar de la Renta number, shall we?
Taylor followed the fashion rules of not-overdoing-it diligently: she kept the beauty small and classy and let the dress do the talking. Her signature red lip is present, along with an understated and not-too-coiffed version of Old Hollywood hair.
That, to me, is key. If those curls had been perfect Jean Harlow ripples, she’d have aged this fashionable look into something outdated and overdone. Fashion is always about balance and mixing in something slightly unexpected – but just enough.
Who’s your favorite celeb fashion home run? Who is your favorite Met Gala look of all time?
