I love Met Gala night. Seeing all the world’s biggest celebrities arriving dressed to the nines happens only once a year, and with every year comes new surprises. It’s one of the most prestigious fashion events of the year where the celebs dress to impress in luxurious ball gowns – a real Cinderella occasion.
The Met Gala is the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institution Benefit, which sees the elite show up for a black-tie event in aid of the Costume Institute. It’s held every first Monday of May and this year’s theme was in accordance with the Met’s Manus x Machina Exhibition: Fashion in an Age of Technology. Tickets for the event are only $30,000. Only.
My favourite looks of the night
Poppy Delevigne, one of the first on the red carpet, I thought her dress quite mediocre but as everyone else began to appear, Poppy’s was actually one of the best, although like everyone else’s.. very silver.
Karolina Kurkova in Marchesa looked stunning (in silver) with the flower detail along the back of the dress and the train making it all that more elegant.
Zoe Saldana slayed with a huge train (flashback to Rihanna’s pizza train) and upped the style game at the event, putting Taylor and Selena to shame. The colour, the material, it all works even if it is a little peacock-y but beautiful all the same.
Nicole Kidman looked ethereal as ever in Alexander McQueen with a cape that resembled the night sky. Classy, elegant and poised.
Willow Smith (in Chanel) and Alexa Chung (in Thakoon) both rocked in sparkling black suits. Very chic. I like.
Emily Ratajkowski looked a vision in this sleek, simple Prabal Gurung dress. No silver, no metallic. Just class.
Bow down to Claire Danes who hands down stole the show and emersed herself in the true essence of the Met Gala. The dress was pure magic, congrats to Zac Posen who created the masterpiece.
Just to finish off I’d like to leave a reminder of who are still reigning King and Queen of the Met Gala and always will be #Goals
