It’s no surprise Karen Elson wound up on countless “best dressed” lists after the 2014 gala. She looked absolutely stunning in her Zac Posen ball gown. The theme of the year “Charles James: Beyond Fashion” inspired a pretty strict dress code issued by Anna Wintour. According to WWD, it was “white tie and decorations.” Considering the number of beautiful, structured ball gowns, we’d say a lot of celebrities followed suit. Elson’s just happened to be one of the most stand-out gowns of the year.
