Many fashion-forward celebrities showed up to the 2017 edition of the Met Gala in NYC. From the carefully curated celebrity guest list to the bespoke couture gowns, this year’s first Monday in May, annual fundraising event did not disappoint.
Although this year’s theme: Rei Kawakuba/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between theme, brought opportunity for extravagant over the top avant-garde evening gowns, many celebrities played the safe card and went for a more elegant look. See a selection of our favourite red carpet looks.
Gisele Bündchen arrived in a silver gown by Stella McCartney for the Green Carpet Challenge, combined with Neil Lane jewellery.
Stunning Selena Gomez wears a soft white gown by Coach. She was accompanied to the event by boyfriend The Weeknd.
Zendaya is wearing a colourful Dolce & Gabbana Couture evening gown. Her hair and makeup, with a subtle red lip, perfectly complemented the look.
The always beautiful Reese Witherspoon teamed her Mugler gown with Tiffany & Co. jewellery.
Lily Aldridge wore an elegant optic white gown with striking cutouts and a circular cape, which was custom made by Ralph Lauren, teamed with red Balenciaga boots. The original prototype of the dress was a purple version from his most recent ready-to-wear collection.
Rihanna obviously stole the show once again in a 3D design gown, which featured a variety of colours and multiple layers. It was a piece from Comme des Garçons 2016 Fall ready-to-wear collection. She was one of the few celebrities who paid homage to the Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons theme.
Taking over the red carpet are young stars Bella and Gigi Hadid, Kendal Jenner and Hailey Baldwin, showing off their amazing body’s wearing prestige designer pieces. It’s not like we needed it, but here’s another example of why they are on every designer’s list.
The one person we were most certainly missing this year is Sarah Jessica Parker. The Sex and the City superstar who made New York City fashion in the late 90’s, had not missed a Met Ball since 2010. SJP is famous for always perfectly honoring the exhibit. We have no doubt she would have done something memorable with this year’s theme.
