Colloquially and affectionately referred to as “fashion’s biggest night out,” the Met Gala is a pinnacle of iconic style.
The new month ushered in the 69th annual Met Gala that played host to the avant-garde theme, inspired by fashion’s most conceptual designer, Rei Kawakubo (No idea who that is? Here’s why you should care) of Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between.”
The Fashion at Met was EVERYTHING! When I tell you our best and brightest played no games with fashion, I kid you not. With the invitation dress code on avant-garde, the world’s biggest A-listers all stepped out on the carpet in their finery, which actually felt like prom for the fashion industry.
On a definitive, celebrities’ outfits were not, on the whole, about elegance or glamour, but about demonstrating their skills in high fashion. Rihanna, as always, somewhat stole the show in the most memorable Comme des Garçons look of the evening, Gigi Hadid in Tommy Hilfiger to Jourdan Dunn in H&M whilst others, like Kim Kardashian, remained more low-key in sleek gowns. Another popular way of referencing the designer was through her signature black fringe and bob.
This ultra-exclusive charity event is chaired by none other than enshrined fashion deity Anna Wintour, and the U.S. Vogue editor-in-chief was joined in hosting duties by Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams.
In stylish norm, the event played host to a kaleidoscopic array of avant-garde ensembles, and we’ve rounded up our favorite looks from the cream and blue carpet for your pleasure. ENJOY!! 🙂
