The Met Gala is one of fashion’s biggest events of the year. Actually, fashion designers and stylists consider it to be the most important red-carpet event for the entire year. But why is the Met Gala such an inspiring moment?
Just think of the mystical outfits our favorite celebrities display year after year, it is the stuff fairytales are made-of. No other red carpet events live up that hype. Maybe that is why the Met Gala has been hailed as the fashion world’s Super Bowl.
Plus, it is the only fashion event that receives direction towards the theme of the red carpet event and making it flattering. For celebrities, it isn’t just about looking beautiful but it is about how they embrace each year’s theme, celebrating the Met’s Costume Institute spring exhibit.
This year’s event celebrated the theme: Camp. Let’s see who landed the theme perfectly and who drastically failed.
Lady Gaga embraced the camp theme by wearing four different ensembles. Her first gown looked like a massive tent-like pink dress with a big bow. Then she appeared in a black strapless gown with an umbrella, then in a pink slip dress with black shades then she surprised us all with some chic lingerie and shiny tights.
Kylie and Kendall Jenner
Kendall and Kylie both wore Versace and looked like a pair of 60’s Vegas showgirls. But according to their Instagram accounts they wanted to envision the wicked stepsisters from the Cinderella fairytale. We are positive if Cinderella’s stepsisters looked like them, they would have landed the Prince.
Celine wore one of the most elaborate glitzy ensembles of the evening. Her gown was inspired by the Ziegfeld Follies and designed by Oscar de la Renta. Her gown took more than 3000 hours to create and was made from 18 different head-beaded panels and weighed over 22 pounds.
Kim Kardashian hit the red carpet with a wet and wild look that took everyone’s breath away and not because it was see though. A vintage picture of Sophia Loren in a wet shirtdress inspired her dress. But how did she cinch her waist?
Kacey Musgraves won the award for the best Barbie ever, what finished off her look was her iconic expression on her face. Plus, the makeup is perfect; it looks like we are looking at a life-size Barbie. We loved the finer details such as the sunglasses and hairdryer clutch.
Sadly, Katy Perry won the award this year for worst dressed and most mocked on social media. The minute she arrived on the red carpet, Twitter lit up with sarcastic comments about her human chandelier ensemble.
Even though Cardi almost couldn’t walk up the stairs in this glamorous breath-taking gown but who cares – she looked amazing. Her goal was to envision a Disney villain and we think she nailed it.
Michael also took our breathe away but not in the same way as Cardi B. We are unsure if he was trying to envision the Ugly Duckling, Princess Diana or Ugly Betty. But we must give him a big applause for originality.
Emily channeled the ultimate camp icon – Cher. Looked drop dead gorgeous with her own interpretation of the Bob Mackie dress with a feathered headpiece.
