MET Gala 2018 by Admin
The fashion’s most anticipated event finally happened two days ago. Indeed, on Monday, 7th May occurred the long-awaited Met Gala. Founded by a publicist called Eleanor Lambert, the first event was first held in 1948. Since, it gathers models, fashion, music and movie celebrities to raise money for the Met’s Costume Institute.
Every year, it comes with a new theme, always more creative, giving free reign to the designers’ imagination that thus, create the most surprising but also the most amazing dresses. That is why we love this event. To admire the sublime outfits but also to define who is the best dressed.
Hosted by Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Donatella Versace and Amal Clooney, this year Met Gala’s inspiration was: “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”. The purpose was to match fashion with religious masterpieces.
Our personal favourite is Blake Lively’s Versace Ruby red gown. It took more than 600 hours to make her embroidery and jewel-encrusted dress. She mastered her look with a spiked headpiece.
Gigi Hadid also wore a Versace dress that took inspiration from the stain glass windows of a church and had embroilments stitch together to remind of a cathedral. She completes her look with matching nails.
Rita Ora stuns in a black chiffon Prada gown adorned with floral appliques. She accessorizes her look with an ornate crown with black roses on it and sequin gloves.
If the guests had the chance to see Madonna performing, we also had the pleasure to see unforgettable outfits on the red carpet, as every year. Celebrities were wearing Balenciaga, Chanel, Dior, Dolce Gabbana, Tory Burch and much more designers. Our favourite looks of this edition were Blake Lively, Gigi Hadid and Rita Ora’s.
The Met Gala has celebrated its 70th anniversary. Every year, we are looking forward to seeing the looks that will cross the 150 yards red carpet and all that we can say is that we cannot wait for next year!
