Aside from the Christmas themed party last year, I’m still yet to be invited to attend a full on, hard core, take-the-car-instead-of-the-train themed costume party (Hmm perhaps time to question my popularity?). Have you attended any fun themed parties recently? I love seeing the creativeness in everyone’s efforts and this year’s Met Ball photos felt like I was flicking through FB friends’ (ok, randoms’) dress up party photos seeing as this year’s Met ball was themed – PUNK: Chaos to Couture. I love commitment when it comes to a dress up theme. Go hard or go home …

Cara Delevingne in Burberry
Aside from the smizing gone wrong in these photos, I do love the way “The Brows” rocks this sleek studded Burberry gown. It’d be my personal choice as an interpretation of Chaos to Couture: Black, studs, Silver hardware you’d expect to find from Camden markets and dark, broody ‘piss off will ya!’ make up. I never understood the fuss around Cara Delevingne as a model (I still remember her from her ASOS days) but respect that she’s stayed true to her London roots wearing Burberry and what can I say, I’ve always been a sucker for long sleeved elegance over side boobage. The look is not overly Punk (I’d expect some leather) and is more on the couture side but I do love her interpretation.
- Runner up: Anne Hathaway in Vintage Valentino
I love that Anne Hathaway is not afraid to reinvent herself and take risks (no bra two times in a row now Anne!). I personally think the platinum cropped locks, inspired by Debbie Harry looks amazing on her

Kim Kardashian in Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy
It’s the glove. It freaks me out. I’ll probably get clubbered over the head for admitting this or at least get a couple of eye rolls but I’m actually a Kim Kardashian fan. I think she has a fantastic body and well, while I struggle to come up with more convincing reasons, I just do. She has a fabulous figure, even whilst pregnant but I’m sorry – I’m just not forward thinking enough to appreciate it because I think this gown looks horrendeous on her. It doesn’t ‘fit the brief‘ and when you are highly pregnant, with an extremely ample bust, a high neck, floral print is kind of the thing you AVOID wearing right?!. Thank goodness for that thigh high split from preventing her like looking like an 80s couch I hear you exclaim? Well … no, not when it reveals an overly tight strapped matching shoes. I think she could have redeemed herself with a different pair of shoes but *shudder,* it’s that creepy matching glove. I.just.don’t.get.it
