Best Dressed at The 2017 MET GALA

I have not written a “best dressed red carpet” post in months. I used to feature them regularly years ago, but I lost interest in writing about them. But I came across some amazing looks from The MET GALA 2017 red carpet, and I was blown away by the beautiful looks. The celebrities went all out with the dresses this year. Thumbs up to their stylists!

Here are my best looks from The MET GALA 2017 –

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian looked very simple and chic in a stunning white Vivienne Westwood dress. I am quite surprised she showed up looking this elegant and simple. I guess she is still recovering from the media backlash from her butt issue. The off-the-shoulder Vivienne Westwood Couture gown is a great choice for Kim Kardashian in this time, she slayed it!

Lupita Nyong’o


The lovely Lupita Nyong’o went bright and bold in a coral organza chiffon Prada gown with hand-cut organza flowers at its strapless neckline. She nailed it in this dress. Coral is definitely her colour. Her makeup is also on point too.

Kendall Jenner


Kendall Jenner looked amazing in this stunning La Perla Haute Couture dress. I love everything about this look. Her dress, makeup and hair are spot on! She was definitely one of the best dressed women at The MET GALA 2017.

Kate Hudson


I adore this look. Kate Hudson looked amazing in this white asymmetric shoulder Stella McCartney gown with matching platinum tresses. I really like this look. I think she looked beautiful on the red carpet.

Katie Holmes


Katie Holmes played in this off-the-shoulder look from Zac Posen. I love her hair and makeup too. She looked so beautiful.

Gisele Bundchen


Gisele Bundchen killed it in this long-sleeve silver Stella McCartney gown. This outfit ticked all the style boxes for me.

What do you think of these looks? Which is your fav?

Beauty Muse – Katie Holmes


The 36-year-old actress and current global ambassador of Olay; the beautiful Katie Holmes is the Beauty Muse of the week. This woman is all versions of beautiful, her imperfections make her even more beautiful. I have been a fan of her for years, and I have always wanted to know her beauty tips and secrets so I went digging.


When it comes to makeup, Katie Holmes told Hello Fashion –

“When it comes to shades, I traditionally stick with nudes and light pinks, but if the occasion calls for it, I like playing with a bold red lip or a dramatic eyeliner. Generally I stick with nudes, browns and purples on my eyes,” she added, speaking about her preferred daily look. “For every day, I like to stick with what I know works for my skin. I make bolder choices on the red carpets – things like smoky eyes or red lips.”



Neutrals colours do look fab on her and she rocks them more often than bold colours. I love the fact that she looks comfortable in her skin, and she knows what works best for her face.



When it comes to skin care routine, she also to Hello Fashion –

“I regularly exfoliate and hydrate my skin as often as I can, I also drink a lot of water, and exercise to help keep my skin in order. I try to have a facial or rely on the Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Cream Wash, it’s got a lovely creamy formula and it helps to purify and exfoliate to refresh my skin. I also love the Olay Regenerist 3 Point Super Age-Defying Moisturizer it really helps to hydrate and balance my skin and makes it feel soft and smooth.”

A lot of name dropping in her skin routine but these products could be the secret to her radiating skin. I am yet to try any of these products so I can’t comment on how good/bad they are. Has anyone tried any of them? What do you think of her beauty tips/secrets? Let’s talk…..


Enhance A Bent Nose


A bent or crooked nose like Katie Holmes’ dominates the face, the nose is usually the first facial feature anyone will nose. This could leave you to consider plastic surgery, but I will have you know that a bent nose can be enhanced with the right makeup and beauty products. Here are some tips for you:

  • Apply your regular shade of foundation all over the nose, then apply a darker shade of foundation to the area of the nose that is bent. This will create the illusion of a straight nose.
  • Apply iridescent highlghter on the other side of the nose, that is not bent, to balance the look.
  • Apply interesting eye make-up; bold eye shadow colours, mascara and eye liners to draw attention to your eyes and away from your nose.
  • Go for a striking lipstick. This will draw attention to the lips and away from the nose, accentuate the positive eliminate the negative.
