By now you all must have gone through all the looks spotted at the Met Gala 2015; the best dressed, the worst dressed and those hilarious memes. Whose seen the Sarah Jessica Parker ones as yet?

Of course in the midst of all that crazy fashion, Style Haven managed to spot a couple of trends celebs have been leaning towards. Not taking in to account the similarity in designs that were in recognition of the theme, China: Through The Looking Glass; but instead we’ll be looking at the trends that have been spotted on the runway and are know being adopted by the fashion fraternity.

Here are the trends that caught our attention:

The Shades Of Red: The colour of choice was definitely red, with celebs pairing it with little to no accessories, so as to let their clothes do the talking. While most went for a darker, almost maroon shade, others dabbled in lighter forms as well. We also saw the pairing of red and black together on some outfits, like those seen on Poppy Delevingne and Allison Williams.

Side Note: I thought Gigi Hadid looked absolutely beautiful at the Met. Her simple Diane von Furstenberg dress paired with mermaid hair and light makeup looked amazing.

The ‘Leave Nothing To The Imagination’ Sheer: So I’m all up for a moderate amount of sheer but this year’s attendees went all out, wearing dresses that really didn’t leave much to the imagination. Now I don’t want to offend Queen B here (though she’s the only one who managed to really own the look)  and I know that the Met Gala is all about over-the-top looks, but I don’t know how I feel about this much skin on display; I mean a little lining didn’t hurt anyone right?

The Cutout: A major trend spotted on the runway, celebs went for strategic cutouts that made their looks seem more edgy. Whilst the around-the-waist cutout seems to be having a moment, celebs didn’t shy away from opting for alternative versions of the cutout trend as well, like the kind seen on Jennifer Lawrence’s Dior Haute Couture dress

The Pant: So glad to see pants finally take over the red carpet. It gives good variation from the full length gowns we’re so used to seeing. Cara’s Stella McCartney jumpsuit and and Sienna’s Thakoon pant suit were probably the edgiest of the lot and I was really glad to see Liya Kebede’s take on the pants-dress trend that has been emerging off late. And though I’m all for pants on the red carpet, Constance Jablonski probably should’ve saved her outfit for the weekend

The Keyhole: I love subtle detailing that help transform an outfit, which is why I’m really happy to see designers introduce the keyhole necklines (aka the teardrop neckline) into their pieces. Though we’re used to seeing the typical dropped down keyhole neckline, I prefer the asymmetric version instead (as seen on Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski.

Of course no look is complete without a complementing beauty look. Here are the trends we spotted in the beauty department:

The Bun: The bun has been around for a while now and can really help in adding to your desired look. Opt for a low bun (maybe with a clean middle part) to seem fuss free or go for a top knot for some added drama

The Dark Lip: Speaking of drama, nothing beats a dark, rich lip colour; which was majorly trending at the Mat Gala. I have been obsessing with Lily Aldridge’s dark berry, almost black lip colour  (for those of you who are equally obsessed, the shade is Marc Jacobs Beauty’s Le Marc Lip Creme in ‘Blow, with ‘Magenta’ dabbed in the middle). Keep your eyes light to bring focus to your lips, or if you’re feeling risky, pair your dark lips with smokey eyes a’la Adriana Lima.

The Side Pony: Although we only saw Beyonce take on the side pony at the Met Gala, this look has been seen a couple of times on the runway. Lets see if others take on this trend. Would you?
