The Met Gala, also known as the Costume Institute Gala, is an annual fundraising gala event for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Each year, the event celebrates the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. The theme of the fashion exhibition sets the tone of the dress code for the formal event.
This year, it was Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of In-Between.
Katy Perry certainly grabbed the media attention. The singer who was co-chairing the event wore a Maison Margiela outfit in red. She was not the only one in that colour palette – Emma Roberts went for retro glamour in a bright red Diane von Furstenberg gown. The designer herself was wearing… Diane von Furstenberg, of course.
Other extravagant ladies were Madonna in Jimmy Choo’s camouflage outfit for Moschino and Kendall Jenner in La Perla Haute Couture.
One of the top beautiful surprises was Zendaya’s dress – a bright orange and yellow Dolce & Gabbana style with parrot print. Not something you see every day, right?
We also saw the classic colours for formal occasions – white (Kim Kardashian West in Vivienne Westwood), pale blue (Jennifer Lopez in Valentino) and pink (Lily Collins in Giambattista Valli Couture).
Cara Delevingne proved that she is sick and tired of society’s beauty standards and sported her new bold look. We have to admit that she still looked stylish. Another unconventional decision was her Chanel suit instead of a typical gown that most of the ladies prefer for such occasions. Bella Hadid didn’t go for a formal dress either – instead, she chose a jumpsuit by Alexander Wang.
Bella’s sister, Gigi Hadid, looked beautiful in a Tommy Hilfiger beige dress. Pale beige was also the go-to colour for Selena Gomez – the singer was wearing a Coach dress and Tiffany & Co. jewels.
As for the couples, our favourite lovers were Gisele Bundchen (in Stella McCartney) & Tom Brady (in Tom Ford) and Blake Lively (in Atelier Versace) & Ryan Reynolds (in Versace).
