2014 Met Costume Institute Gala | May 5, 2014
Oscar de la Renta custom gown
As revealed earlier today by Taylor herself on Twitter, she stepped out onto the red carpet wearing a custom pink gown featuring allover embellishments by Oscar de la Renta.
While the front featured a simple a-line silhouette, the real drama came from the dress’ long, sculptured train.
As with many of the gowns from tonight, I feel a little letdown by the dress. Taylor looks lovely, as usual, and I like the glossy but textured waves of her hair, her glowing, dewy skin and the way the bodice creates a deep cut in the back. However, this won’t go down as one of my favourite looks from her.
I’m at least glad to see Meredith didn’t rip it to shreds during the final fitting.
Update (Feb. 15): You can actually purchase an unembellished version of Taylor’s gown via My Theresa here for $8645.
