As we all know, the ever so famous Met Gala took New York City by storm this week. Celebrities, designers and icons spent the night walking down a red-carpet that is known for out of the box, eye-catching ensembles.
This year’s theme was “Rei Kawakubo/COMME des GARÇONS: Art of the In-Between” and although, it led to some beautiful fashion choices, Rihanna seemed to be one of the only few who stuck to the theme. As with any red carpet event, there is always an array of best and worst dressed celebrities . See some of our favorite looks below as well as our not so favorite looks.
We’ll have to say, Rihanna hit the nail on the head with the theme as she wore a Comme des Garçons dress straight off the runway paired with Rihanna Loves Chopard, Le Vian and DVANI jewelry as well as Dsquared2 shoes to top it off.
Cara Delevingne was one of the few stars who hit us with the wow factor. Forget dresses, she rocked a silver Chanel two-piece suit and looked absolutely stunning in it. Even better, her frosted, glittery beauty look was achieved by pieces of tin foil that were sculpted to her head, almost as if her head was apart of a painting.
Despite the fact that she strayed away from the avant-garde theme, Zendaya looked absolutely flawless. She wore a dress consisting of bright floral patterns and parakeets by Dolce & Gabbana. She crisped the look with a bright orange lip and teased afro. This is not a combo you see on the red carpet often, yet it’s a look were looking forward to seeing more of!
Priyonka Chopra blew our minds in a classic trench coat turned into a gown by the one and only Ralph Lauren. She paired this out of the box look with Jennifer Fisher earrings. She may not have been in line with the theme, but we loved how inventive and chic this looked on the carpet.
Elizabeth Banks may have gone simple with a Michael Kors maxi dress with a pattern that was definitely eye catching. When we heard that the theme was the “Art of the In-Between,” this dress couldn’t come to our minds fast enough! The pattern reminded us of art and we love the initiative she took in following it.
While we usually love everything and anything worn by Kerri Washington, we were not too impressed by her Michael Kors look. This dress may have seemed like a good idea at the time, but we were not fans. The dress felt a little too futuristic and space themed for the Met.
We were not too fond of Daisy Ridley in Oscar de la Renta. We couldn’t help but think of a dress you wear to your high school prom when seeing this one. It’s simple and elegant but just doesn’t cut it for the Met Gala.
