*Oscars of the fashion world* – no doubt they are! New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art experienced the biggest event on the fashion fundraising calendar this Monday, May 7th. This year’s exhibition theme was *Heavenly bodies Fashion And The Catholics imagination*. The theme of Met Gala 2018 is being criticized as Met’s most controversial yet, owing to the positioning of these fashion garments alongside sacred artefacts and Holy events.
Anna Wintour, Museum Trustee and Met Gala 2018 co-chair, told the press, “Fashion reflects the world around us and Nobody understands that more clearly than Andrew. When I go to these fashion exhibitions, I am always so amazed to see people from all sides of the globe and all walks of life really starting the exhibition and understanding that fashion does not operate in a vacuum.”
Now let’s get to the dresses!
*Kim Kardashian West*
The Queen , Kim Kardashian West showed up in all/Gold Versace but her husband, Rapper turned Fashion designer, Kanye West – probably the most controversial man alive right now ( due to his interview – of course!) did not attend the event – 5 albums to complete. Who needs a Photoshop, when you got them curves?
Our very own young mama , Kylie Jenner opted for all-black outfit design by Alexander Wang. She was accompanied by the new baby daddy Travis Scott. It was the couple’s first public appearance after their daughter, Stromi Webster’s birth.
Who’s the new Pope? BadGalRiri! No wonder why we are convinced that Rihanna is the obvious choice for the top job in the Vatican city. The singer turned cosmetic line owner truly rocked the mythical attire in her Maison Margiela dress accompanied by the mitre hat on her head which really look like a real balancing act. She is definitely “The reigning queen of the Met Gala Red carpet” – Killing it as always!
Talking about the Saints and popes, let’s talk about the best Goth. Lily Collins had no fear of going to the Dark Side – as dark as the soul – when she showed up on the met Gala red carpet in an edgy black Givenchy gown , celestial tears makeup paired up with black Halo!
Our Cat-woman, Ariana Grande made her remarkable met Gala debut in a sweeping ball gown by Vera Wang. The beautiful gown framed the Art from the sistine chapel.
The art of the virgin Mary – Cardi B’s Immaculate conception-theme look for the met Gala seems breathtaking. All eyes were on her baby bump!
Aka Black Panther wore a white , gold embellished suit and a matching cape, surely taking things to the next level.
Miss World 2000, the Quantico babe rocked the red carpet and surely was the best Interpretation of a Knight’s Tale – wearing crimson Velvet gown from Ralph Lauren and a gold coif/wimple style headpiece.
The Padmaawat actor looked gorgeous in a Prabal Gurung Silk-crepe gown with a shoulder bloom which accentuated her svelte figure. Accessorised by red Stilettos and stunning diamond jewelry.
Everything has flaws! The most disappointing looks from this year’s Met Gala are from; Shailene Woodley, Amal Clooney, Kate Moss and last but not the least – Selena Gomez.
The Singer-actor turned producer suffered a major fake tan fail on this big night – The too much bronzed glow clearly didn’t match her ankles. Her makeup was a fail. So guess who’s going to get fired now?
The dior girl- on the other hand looked quite better. The fashion sensation wore a mixed latex, leather and lace on the glam night dressed in an ensemble designed by Chrome hearts official. Though, it was definitely not a stand out sartorial look.
The actors which were missed on this night included – Queen Bee , The Weeknd , Kanye West , Zain Malik etc.
