Best Dressed | The Met Gala 2016 – Manus vs Machina

My favourite red carpet occasion of the year raised its stunning head and left us with a vast array of fashion at our finger tips.

The Met Gala is Anna Wintour’s night to shine and with an outlandish theme it always allows fashion’s bravest to push the boundaries and test their creative prowess. Let me begin this post by stating my 2 non-disputable rules for Met Ball attendees:

Rules for the Met Ball:

1) If you are going to attend the Met Gala then you follow the theme!

I don’t care who you are or what you do. If you are forking out thousands of dollars for a ticket to attend a fashion exhibition then you owe it to the event to at least abide by the rules. Just as important to remember is that that includes pushing yourself. Wearing a simple metallic dress does not meet my standards of following the theme… If I see you in a plain silver dress for a Manus vs. Machina theme – next!

2) If you do abstain from the theme then your outfit needs to be perfect.

If you are going to irritate spectators and be brazen enough to turn your back on the wondrous theme, that I’m sure has been painstakingly chosen for you, then you at the very least need to make sure that your off-beat outfit is absolutely flawless. If not, then why be awkward in the first place? If you’re not going to follow the theme and you wear a boring outfit then you might as well have stayed at home. This is a fashion event, darling.

That being said, the majority of stars and fashionistas alike did me proud this year and I was more than pleasantly surprised when scrolling through Vogue, Elle and Vanity Fair online (where the pictures in this post were sourced from). Thus, let’s get into it.

Landofpod – Visuals.

As you guys know, writing posts is a huge passion of mine. Unlike other bloggers, I do not pride myself on taking pictures of me or others, more so on my writing skills and being relatable in my viewpoints/opinions. This, of course, takes a lot of time – between finding appropriate pictures, writing, re-writing, editing and proof-reading – so naturally, I can’t update posts on a daily basis. Something which I do love though is pictures. Simply pictures. Alone, with no caption, no opinions – essentially standing on their own. What you may not know is that this is something that I also do. On my tumblr I blog/reblog pictures daily which grab my attention, which hold my interest and which undoubtedly, I fall in love with. I find this to be an inspiring, much easier, faster way to keep in touch with fashion and also a way to do it on a daily basis.

For this reason, I am doing a post based solely on some of my favourite pictures from my Tumblr blog : http://landofpod.tumblr.com/. I want you guys to check this out, follow it if you have a tumblr of your own and if not, then just visit it daily, weekly or monthly, just to see what inspires me and will hopefully ignite some fashion flares in your own heart. To end my introduction, below you will find some of my most beloved pictures that I have posted in the past month alone. Have a look, enjoy and tell me how you feel about this other aspect of my blogging:
