MET GALA 2017: REI KAWAKUBO/ COMME DES GARCON “ART OF THE IN-BETWEEN”

Image result for MET GALA

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!

WINNER !

SECOND PLACE

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…….

TOP FAVORITES

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.

PERFECT MATCH.

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.

MET GALA 2016 

Last night was one of the BIGGEST days in Fashion. The MET Gala happens every first Monday in May. The MET Gala is an annual fundraiser for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s costume institute in NYC. Anna Wintour who is Vogue’s head mistress, is in charge of everything from who get an invite, to the what’s on the menu. I watched my news feed all night trying to keep up with all the red carpet styles. This year the theme at the MET Gala was “Fashion in the Age of Technology.” My prediction on what was going to be seen on the carpet was metallic and sliver. Of course I was correct! Here are a few of the nights Best and Worst dress in my opinion. Enjoy xoxo

I loved this white cutout Brandon Maxwell gown on Karlie Kloss, wish it was a little more toward the theme but honestly this dress was beautiful. Nicole Kidman reminded me of a Futuristic Luna goddess in this embellished Alexander McQueen cape gown. Rachel McAdams also fit the theme perfectly in a gold and mesh inset Valentino stunner.

LOVVVEEED Gigi Hadid in this grey & metallic gown by Tommy Hilfer. Poppy Delevingne looked gorgeous in Marchesa….head to toe in the runaway look might I add. Jourdan Dunn was one of my favorite Balmain gals rocking Balmain of course. 🔥

Ciara looked great in H&M, Love the storm inspired hair. LOVVVVEEDDDDDD Rita Ora in this custom Vega Wang gown.  Taylor Swift was definitely one of my top picks for the night rocking Louis Vuttion. I am just loving Taylor’s grunge it was growing on me but now I’m all for it.  ❤️

Kylie Jenner did not cease to please with this Balmain piece. Naomi Campbell looked flawless in Roberto Cavalli and I love Zendaya futuristic look in this one shoulder turtle neck golden Michael Kors gown.

Karolina Kurkova looked like a fairy princess in Marchsea. Brie Larson in this sliver ruffle Proenza Schouler. Another top look for the night has to be Kate Hudson in this Atelier Versace piece I LOVVVEEE the details in this gown!!!!!💎

LOVEEEEEEEED Lala in this Nicolas Jebran ombré dress, reminded me of a fierce alien warrior. Wasn’t a fan of  Beyonce in this custom latex Givenchy dress but it sure was a show stopper. Sure did enjoy the funny memes 😂. Nicki Minaj’s make up was on FLEEK but this Moschino piece, wasn’t a go for me.

These had to be my least favorite looks of the night top being Kim Kardashian in Balmain…. She just looked so constrained and stuffed in this piece but very futuristic. Not a huge fan of the bleach eyebrow trend either. Selena Gomez looked very plain & sad to say basic in this Louis Vuitton piece and Lady Gaga hit the theme on the head in this Versace bodysuit & jacket just wish she had something on her legs….her shoes were killer!!!!!

I applaud everyone who thought outside the box because why not go extreme for the Met Gala. Solange looked like a piece of beautiful art in this  David Laport piece. Madonna looked very witch queen in this Givenchy piece….oh yeah and her cheeks were out 😳. Katy Perry also went all out wearing this very detailed Prada gown and adding some dramatics with some black gloves.

Love these looks on these dapper man Idris Elb was one of my top favorites in this tail coat number by Tom Ford & white bow tie. Wiz Khalifa looked very fresh faced & handsome in this Rag & Bone piece. Nas looked like ageless in this Public School suit. 👔

The drapper man list continues…..Michael B Jordan wore Calvin Klein not in love with the shoe choice. Mr. Future wore a custom Zegna suit rocking a white bow tie……btw I love this white on white look on man. I LOVEEEEEEEED Jaden Smith in this Louis Vuttion piece……I want that Coat!!!!!🎩

This was so STUNNINGGGGGGGGG Claire Danes in this custom Zac Posen dress made out of optic fiber. Claire just looks like she is the princess of the ball shining bright on all of us. Now this was my top favorite.❤️❤️❤️💎💎💎💎
