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
The best dressed:
Gigi Hadid in Tommy Hilfiger
Cara Delevingne in Chanel
Zendaya in Dolce & Gobbana
Lily Collins in Giambattista Valli
Priyanka Chopra in Ralph Lauren
Not on theme:
Jennifer Lopez in Valentino
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
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.
