I’VE FINALLY DECIDED THAT THESE SEVEN STARS ARE THE WINNERS FROM THE MET GALA MADNESS!
Probably the most anticipated red carpet of the year for the fashion industry. And the most creative for the celebrities and their stylists.
YES, there is always a theme – this year it was Rei Kawakubo/Comme Des Garcons so think avant-garde amazingness – but they are always so broad, giving the stars license to go crazy with their looks.
We’ve all ogled over the red carpet pictures, I have multiple times, and there were a few ‘slebs that did it for me (minus Rihanna, of course. She wins). And this is why…
*ZOE KRAVITZ IN OSCAR DE LA RENTA*
Ordinarily it would be a NO to this much pink Duchess satin, but what with the REAL black flowers – yes REAL, as a nod to Comme, Zoe’s hair and makeup and the dramatics of the cape, this is a YES YES BLOODY YESSSSS!
*CAROLINE KENNEDY IN ARCHIVE COMME DES GARCONS*
Jackie O’s daughter to you and I, and an honorary chair of the ball. I totally salute her bravery, passion for the theme and courage and confidence to wear this dress. It’s not the most flattering piece, but it’s a statement, and totally in keeping with the theme. She does have arms though, right?
*AYMELINE VALADE IN MARNI*
I couldn’t let the Met go past without talking about a power suit, but I wasn’t expecting to fall so deeply in love with one! This French model and actress completely stole the show for me. I’m OBSESSED with this look on her. The colour! The clashing! The embellishment! The hair! The red lip! Oh it’s just TOOOOOO good!
*AMY FINE COLLINS IN THOM BROWNE*
Amy, a ‘special correspondent’ to Vanity Fair (not entirely sure what a special corespondent is or does), chose this insanely amazing Thom Browne gown. But it was her severeness – hair, makeup, facial features – that really made me take notice. But back to the dress… OH. MY. GODDDDD. Now THIS is a piece. I can’t even put into words how much I love it! It, and she, is just… mesmerising!
*TRACEE ELLIS ROSS IN COMME DES GARCONS*
The ‘Black-ish’ star was one of my favourites of the night for obvious reasons. You’d think all the huge stars would have delved into the Comme Des Garcons archive, but clearly not! Leave it Tracee! The blue is great on her, and the sculptural cut is amazing…
*ZENDAYA IN DOLCE & GABBANA ALTA MODA COUTURE*
This little firecracker has been on my fashion radar for some time now, she ALWAYS looks amazing (thanks to her mega stylist, Law Roach – also responsible for Celine Dion’s uber style switch up of late). This gown is SO statement, so ‘look at me’, so fabulous! It’s a bit more romantic than the theme in question, but still, what a look!
*PRIYANKA CHOPRA IN CUSTOM RALPH LAUREN COLLECTION*
She looks like a really chic, fabulous, dramatic undercover agent. Who isn’t undercover at all. But really wearing one of the most, in fact THE most epic trench coat! BRAVO, PRIYANKA!
