The Met Gala is an annual fundraising event for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s Costume Institute in New York City and marks the grand opening of its annual fashion exhibit. Celebrating this year’s theme “China, Through The Looking Glass”, it seems to be one of the most challenging yet. See below who honored China’s heritage and its present culture on the red carpet best.
This year’s award to best dressed of the night goes to:
Rihanna wearing Chinese designer Guo Pei
The butt girls:
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West in Roberto Cavalli
Donatella Versace and Jennifer Lopez, both in Atelier Versace.
Best Chinese inspirations:
Zendaya Coleman in Fausto Puglisi
Karolina Kurkova in Tommy Hilfiger
I am always looking forward to seeing Sarah Jessica Parker‘s outfit because she has never let us down in pulling off the best looks. And let’s just say the headpiece combined with her H&M dress is divine.
Georgia May Jagger in Gucci and Alessandro Michele
Chloë Sevigny in J.W. Anderson
Very sophisticated: Tom Ford and Rita Ora in his design.
Alexa Chung in Erdem
George Clooney and Amal Clooney in Maison Margiela
Not so inspired by the Chinese theme… but great to watch:
Jeremy Scott kissing Kate Perry‘s hand who is wearing Moschino.
Also Madonna wore Moschino.
Stella McCartney framed by Cara Delevingne, Sofia Richie, and Zhu Zhu, all dressed in her designs.
Alexander Wang kissed by Lady Gaga in Balenciaga
Miley Cyrus and Zoë Kravitz dressed in Alexander Wang.
Kendall Jenner in Calvin Klein Collection
Robert Pattinson and FKA twigs in Christopher Kane (definitely not my favorite gown of the night).
Supermodel Joan Smalls arrived at the Met Gala in a black tulle and purple silk one-sleeved Roberto Cavalli gown with cutouts and sheer paneling. Her date was the newly appointed designer of the Italian fashion house Peter Dundas. Isn’t this gown to die for?!
