The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit.
This year’s theme is “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,” paying homage to the Japanese designer who founded and heads the fashion label. Known for her avant-garde creations, we can expect plenty of boundary-pushing, sculptural looks from the stars tonight.
here are few celebs who rocked the red carpet with their unique style of dressing.
Katy Perry sure knows how to make a statement. The singer, who is known to experiment with her look often, did not disappoint in her Maison Margiela by John Galliano number. The all-red chiffon gown was completed with a sheer veil and a headpiece.
Jennifer Lopez decides to play it romantic, and the MET Gala, of all red carpets, seemed like a strange place to do it. JLo walked the red carpet in a custom-made Valentino dress.
Minaj slayed it with her H&M dress, complete with a floor-sweeping train. And, don’t miss that statement cinching belt , with Rei Kawakubo‘s face on it. Now that’s a literal tribute.
Rihanna made the perfect thematic statement by taking on this creation by Rei Kawakubo’s Comme des Garçons. The dress was completely on-point with exaggerated three-dimensional floral-themed ruffles. She completed the look with red lace-up heels.
She’s not new to Hollywood’s hottest red carpets and PeeCee made for quite a confident picture at her MET Gala debut. The toffee-hued trench coat dress by Ralph Lauren gave away the perfect dose of drama thanks to the trailing train, and the contrasting boots added some edge, something that Kawakubo is known for.
Deepika played it dainty in her vanilla-hued Tommy Hilfiger dress. While there’s no doubt that she looks pretty-perfect, She did miss the quirk and out-of-the-box style that one would expect at the MET Gala, especially when Kawakubo is the inspiration.
