September 13th, fashion’s biggest night was held at its usual location: the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. We take a look at our favourite looks from these years theme of “American Independence”. Consider the Met Gala red carpet to be a walking museum—these outfits are true works of art.
When it comes to sticking to the theme, JLo gets top marks out of all the guests. She made a convincing case for high-end western wear; all she needs now are cowboy boots.
Billie Eilish was one of the night's biggest surprises. The Bad Guy singer looked stunning in a princess-worthy peach ballgown.
Iman made a strong first impression! The 66-year-old supermodel looked jaw-droppingly stunning in her sun goddess-inspired look, giving fans one of the major 'wow' moments of the night.
Irina sashayed down the red carpet in a beautiful, nude effect dress with colourful floral embroidery, easily one of our favourite looks of the night. The Moschino gown was perfectly paired with beige heels and a sleek updo for the show.
Shahidi arrived at the Met Gala in a custom strapless Christian Dior gown, embroidered with intricate beading, and fashioned with a thin belt and a long trail.
Isn't it true that Kim never disappoints? The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star wore a head-to-toe Balenciaga ensemble, complete with balaclava, to ensure she was the talk of the town. The star's dramatic costume, which was a departure from her usual glam, divided fans. The 75-inch pony tail hairstyle was perhaps the only thing more dramatic than her faceless, all-black Balenciaga ensemble.
Emma, the new US Open champion, who swapped the court for the red carpet looked stunning in Chanel on the Met Gala red carpet.
In a floor-length Givenchy gown, Kendall Jenner amplified the glitz. The sheer gown, which was worn with a nude bodysuit, made a big impression on the red carpet. Kendall kept her hair and makeup simple, allowing her dress to take center stage.
Jennifer Hudson kept it simple in a figure-hugging scarlet down with dramatic, voluminous sleeves and a matching train, channeling old Hollywood glamour. She walked the red carpet with her hair in an elegant updo and worked her magic.
At least we only have to wait 8 months for next year’s looks…
