Instagram On The Scene: The 2014 Met Gala

Red carpet flix are fine, but the more personal pix taken with the flash of an iPhone are infinitely more fun.

Take a look at a few Instagram snaps from Met Gala goers:

Jourdan Dunn and Chanel Iman Met Gala 2014

Jourdan Dunn and Chanel Iman were picture perfect in custom Topshop gowns with couture cohort Kendall Jenner in the background.

Shaun White, Solange, Janelle Monae, Miguel Met Gala 2014 Pro-snowboarder Shaun White posed for a pic with Solange, Janelle Monae, and Miguel (wearing Costume National) while at the festivities.  Music video talks in the works?  Hmm…just a thought.

Lala and Carmelo Anthony Met Gala 2014 Lala Anthony served curves for all your nerves in this violet Cushnie et Ochs gown.  The color is impeccable, but I thought the gown could’ve used just a smidgen more drama.  Her mug was beat to high heaven though!  Carmelo’s tux fit him perfectly, but I draw the line at the top hat.  It teeters on the highwire that separates dapper gentleman and ringmaster of the traveling circus.

Gisele Bundchen Met Gala 2014 Supermodel Gisele Bundchen gave us her signature over-the-shoulder pose in her Balenciaga gown.

Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez, Jessica Joffe and Diane von Furstenberg Met Gala 2014 Jessica Alba, Jessica Joffe, and Selena Gomez posed with the incomparable Diane von Furstenberg while wearing her dresses for the event.  Don’t they look statuesque?

Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Olivier Rousteing Met Gala 2014 Rosie Huntington-Whiteley sidled next to Olivier Rousteing, who designed her Balmain frock.  To me, this would’ve worked better for last year’s “punk” theme, but it’s a fabulous dress, nonetheless.  Unbeknownst to them, they’ve created their own theme:  #cheekbonesandperfectpouts

Reese Witherspoon, Stella McCartney, Rihanna, and Cara Delevigne Met Gala 2014

Reese Witherspoon, Kate Bosworth, Stella McCartney, and Cara Delevigne had some fun at the Met Gala, funny poses and faces galore.

Liu Wen Met Gala 2014 Model Liu Wen was the picture of perfection in this jade colored Zac Posen creation.  Her gown was an A+ interpretation of the night’s Charles James theme.  Best dressed nominee for me.

Sarah Silverman Met Gala Surprise surprise!  Sarah Silverman looked like the belle of the ball in Zac Posen.  #whatiswigsnatchfor1600Alex

Dita von Teese and Zac Posen Met Gala 2014 And sidling up to the designer himself was Dita von Teese.  Her two toned nude and red mermaid gown cinched her waist and accentuated her frame flawlessly.  Her hair and makeup were beautiful as always.

SJP, Andy Cohen, and Andre Leon Talley Met Gala 2014 Sarah Jessica Parker and Andy Cohen shared a few laughs while gabbing with Andre Leon Talley.  Fun times!

Maxwell Osborne, Thom Browne, Dao-Yi Chow Met Gala 2014 Designers Maxwell Osborne (far left) and Dao-Yi Chow (far right) of Public School NYC hung out with designer Thom Browne (2nd left), probably admiring each others’ fashion forward ensembles.  Only Mr. Browne can pull off a cropped trouser at such an auspicious affair.

Suki Waterhouse Met Gala Model/actress Suki Waterhouse took a snapshot for Instagram in her gorgeous Burberry confection.  And if you thought this was enough drama…

Suki Waterhouse Met Gala 2014 Pow!  Get all the way into this tiered, ruffled train!  Glam-MORE!

The Beckhams Met Gala 2014
The Beckhams were on tap for the night’s soiree.  David was dapper in a white Ralph Lauren suit, while Victoria looked regal and served her usual stern face.

Erykah Badu Met Gala 2014 Erykah Badu took a selfie while en route, leaving us on the edge of our seats for what she had in store…

Erykah Badu Met Gala 2014 2 Et voila!  And just like that, her chapeau puts Pharrell’s to shame as she strutted down the carpet wearing Givenchy.  Not quite on theme, however, no one can do this like she can.  I’m here for it!

Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss Met Gala 2014 “Excuse us.  We’re just Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss glamming it up.  But first, let’s take a selfie.”  Has a winged liner ever been done so perfectly?

Marc Jacobs Met Gala 2014 Rounding out the selfie train was the astounding Marc Jacobs, looking tailored to a T from perfectly side-parted head to toe.

As with all Met Gala coverage, stay tuned to this space for updates!
