The Met Gala is inarguably fashion’s biggest night, where actresses, models, and athletes go the extra mile to wear dresses or even outfits they wouldn’t dare to wear otherwise. Honoring unconventional fashion designer Rei Kawakubo. This year’s theme was “Rei Kawakubo & Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between” where eccentric and avant-garde looks dominated (for better or worse) the red carpet.
Rihanna in Comme des Garçons.
Wearing the honored designer, Riri managed to top her infamous 2015 Met Gala Guo Pei gown. As we expected nothing less from her, Rihanna was the talk of the night with this perfect interpretation of “Fashion is art”.
Katy Perry in Maison Margiela
Definitely the risk taker of the night but the whole ensemble is confusing. Katy Perry looks miserable and trapped inside a red cage.
The best dressed:
Gigi Hadid in Tommy Hilfiger
Gigi made Avant-Garde sexy in a nude tulle dress by sportswear designer Tommy Hilfiger with yes, a leg pop!
Cara Delevingne in Chanel
Nobody rocks a suit on the red carpet better than Cara Delevingne. This sleek, shiny and sexy evening suit is everything and that pixie hair-do is such a clever accessory!
Zendaya in Dolce & Gobbana
In this tropical print full ball skirt, Zendaya is the epitome of romanticism.
Lily Collins in Giambattista Valli
Punk-Princess? Lily tapped into her dark side and showed us an edgier side of her and we don’t hate it!
Priyanka Chopra in Ralph Lauren
I dare you to rock an oversized trench coat better than Priyanka. With the sleeves pushed up, a bold makeup and THAT TRAIN, Priyanka looked fierce on the red carpet.
Not on theme:
Jennifer Lopez in Valentino
JLo graced a gorgeous light blue dress that invites us to a night on the Côte d’Azur rather than the Met Gala. But when you look this ethereal who cares right?
Blake Lively in Versace
As stunning as she looks (I mean when doesn’t she?) this dress is almost too “common” or “typical” for Blake. I would’ve loved for her to have raised the bar last night and show a bit more creativity. This isn’t Cannes after all.
Kylie Jenner in Versace and Kendall Jenner in La Perla
Although both dazzling dresses, I’m not sure how they fit the theme… Both dresses seem more appropriate for a Gatsby theme than an homage to Kawakubo.
Selena Gomez in Coach.
The past couple of years we’ve seen Selena Gomez transition from “good girl” to a more sexy and mature woman. But last night’s choice of dress was a deception. Although nothing wrong with the aesthetic of the dress, Selena looked too “sweet”. Gomez’ dress lacked the boldness that usually accompanies her on the red carpet, but her daring makeup more than makes up for this.
Gisele Bündchen in Stella McCarthy
Two words: too dull.
