Forget the opulent dresses and the disastrous results of trying so hard to fit in at this year’s Met Gala “China: Through The Looking Glass” theme. These two ladies arrived in their pants and put the other celebrities to shame.
1. Sienna Miller stunned in a red pants suit

The 33-year-old had custom-made Thakoon red fringed pants and matching red cropped jacket. It’s a tasteful look that fit the theme perfectly, thanks to the festive red color and the addition of the tasseled belt. We also love the understated Jacob & Co. jewelry and the starkly simple pair of pumps.
2. Diane Kruger played with silhouette in sheer pants

This two-piece look was courtesy of Chanel Haute Couture. And while it doesn’t scream “oriental” right off the bat, the actress made it fit the theme with her styling. The floral hair adornment and the red Judith Leiber clutch were enough to keep her style in check that night.
Both looks are exciting but which one do you think stands out more?
