The Met Gala known as one of, “fashions biggest nights out,” occurs every year on the first Monday in May. The Met Gala is an annual fund raising event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. Every year there is a certain theme that guest should abide to. This year, The Met Gala celebrates the opening of the Costume Institute’s exhibition: Rei Kawakubo/ Comme des Garcons”Art of the In- Between.” Avant Garde to me means out of the ordinary, pushing boundaries, something that no one else has done. Now keeping that in mind, a lot of attendees didn’t participate in this year’s theme. There were a beautiful array of gowns but only a few hit that “Avant Garde” mark. Take a look!
Rihanna! She just gets it! Rih Rih was the best dressed and was on point with this years theme. She wore a Comme des Garcons Fall 16 gown with Dsquare2 heels. This WHOLE look just works!!!!! From the makeup to the shoes everything was on point!
Katy Perry followed through with the theme as expected from her. Wearing a custom John Galliano design for Maison Margiela. Very over the top, very extreme, very Katy Perry. Do you see that third eye…….
This is what I call on POINT with the Theme. Jourdan Dunn wore a custom H&M look, which she actually assisted in designing. You can not have the MET Gala without Solange. Solange was like F* this weather, I am wearing a down coat with a train, soooo Avant Garde!!!! YASSSSSS to Stella Tennany in Comme des Garcons.
Keri Washington rocked this custom black double-crepe-sablé cutout Michael Kors gown with silver embroidery. Zendaya’s whole looked WOO’d me. From her coral lip color, her perfect Afro to her Dolce & Gabbana gown just purely amazing. Rita Ora gave me Hollywood glam and the MET combine in this Marchesa gown.
100 % loved Lily Aldridge in this custom white Ralph Lauren cutout dress and red Balenciaga thigh-high boots. Tracee Ellis Ross gave me full Avant Garde in this Comme des Garcons look. A little bit of class and a little bit of edge is what Ross was serving. I dig these corn rows and Valentino caped gown on Ruth Negga.
Loved this Dolce & Gabbana dress on Lori Harvey. Ashley Graham looked stunning in this custom H& M gown. Didn’t really hit the theme but I still loved this Burberry gown on Ruby Rose.
Hailey Baldwin rocked this strapless bustier and triple tier tulle skirt by Carolina Herrera. Everything that the beautiful Janelle Monae wears is ravishing. She wore her signature black & white look, giving me life in this Ralph & Russo gown. Laura Osnes looked beautiful in this playful Christian Siriano gown.
TIME FOR SOME FELLAS…..
Wiz Khalifa looked pretty cool in this Thom Bowne suit and white Doc Martens. Jaden Smith rocked this Louis Vuitton suit with is latest accessory, his dreads. Future looked dapper in a custom H&M suit.
Michael B. Jordan rocked a Ralph Lauren suit, wish he went with a different color shoe. Love this custom H&M suit on Joe Jonas. Nick Jonas wore this fun Ralph Lauren blazer.
BEST DRESSED COUPLES!
Blake Lively wore a custom gold Atelier Versace gown. Cassie wore a beautiful On Aura Tout Vu gown and Diddy wore Rick Owens.
Pharell Williams and his wife Helen Lasichanh wore Comme des Garcons. Edward Enninful and Naomi Campbell wore Azzedine Alaia.
Really adored this Off White look on Liu Wen. Loved this custom H&M gown on Stella Maxwell. Wasn’t a huge fan of Gigi Hadid’s Tommy Hilfiger dress but it was on point with the theme.
Not my favorite look on Kendall Jenner but she definitely rocked this La Perla Haute Couture design. Loveedddd everything about Zoe Kravitz in this Oscar de la Renta gown with black feather detailing. Lala Anthony looked gorge in this Thai Nguyen Atelier gown.
NOT SO FAVORITES……..
Nicki Minaj in a custom H&M gown…..didn’t do much for me, not as daring as I know Nicki can be. Cara Delevingne wore a Chanel ensemble wasn’t my favorite look but it did hit that “Avant Garde” mark. Didn’t care for this Ralph Lauren look on Priyanka Chopra. Reminded me of a sexy inspector gadget.
No, No, No to this Alexander Wang catsuit on Bella Hadid, very sexy but just didn’t work for the model. Kim Kardashian looked very simple and clean in this Vivienne Westwood gown, would have been perfect for a non MET Gala event…….Kylie Jenner looked gorgeous in this Versace gown but it just reminded me of a sea monster.
Chrissy Teigen wore a Marchsea gown, it fit the theme but it didn’t look good on her, surprisingly. JLo gave me Jackie Kennedy vibes in this blue Valentino gown……no where did this touch the theme. A bit disappointed in miss Lopez.
