All eyes were on the Met Gala last night as some of the biggest names in entertainment walked the prestigious event’s red carpet. As you know, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York city hosts this annual Gala that has become the exclusive glamorous affair it has evolved into. Each year, the Gala chooses a theme - for both its cocktail hour and formal dinner. And A-List celebrities come, ready to show off their best outfits. This year’s theme was “Camp” - an aesthetic style that regards something as appealing because of its bad taste, and ironic value.
Let’s delve into some of our favorite looks!
We had to kick this list off with none other than Cardi B, ofcourse.
It’s not a party until Cardi B pulls up.
The larger-than-life Rap star hit the Gala’s red carpet in a Thom Browne gown covered in red feathers that had everyone turning their heads. Last year, Cardi attended the Gala for the first time wearing Jeremy Scott who escorted her down the carpet. This year, Cardi had to attend solo since, well.. her dress took up too much space for a plus one. The custom floor-length gown with a train that was pretty much an entity of its own is at the top of our list.
Next up on our list is Serena Williams.
Only the co-chair of the 2019 Met Gala could pull off this stunning custom neon yellow strong-shouldered Versace gown with matching yellow sneakers from Virgil Abloh. Like icing on a cake, Serena paired her outfit with a diamond watch, emerald green rings and drop earrings by de Grisogono.
Watches are a great accessory. Looking to freeze up your wrist like Serena? Check out our White Gold LX Watch studded with AAA handset stones, plated in white gold.
Naomi Campbell also stirred up some red carpet conversations when she hit the red carpet accompanied by a man whose sole responsibility was to fan her as she walked. But it was her dress that truly stole the show. Campbell stunned in a caped pink feathered gown by Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli. Naomi also managed to ice up her wrist with some diamonds.
Stand-out pieces for your wrist can complete any look, like our White Gold CZ Studded Nail Bracelet lined with CZ stones.
Bella Hadid arrived to the Met Gala alone but she really didn’t need anyone else to help her shine. Dressed in a lavish black gown with jeweled cutouts, The Weeknd’s absence wasn’t missed too much. No offense to The Weeknd. His girl showed out with cut-outs that showed off the flesh on her hips, and gloves that were covered in jewels.
Designer, Alexandra Mandelkorn, had gone through fifteen sketches before finalizing the design that would hit the red carpet on singer, Janelle Monae. The Picasso and Dali inspired dress incorporated elements of surrealism. She made sure Monae’s signature black and white aesthetic was still present while creating bold looks with the addition of the blinking eye and ridiculous pile of top hats that she wore on her head.
While Kim Kardashian came to slay the Gala red carpet in her beaded latex dress by Thierry Mugler, husband, Kanye West decided to wear a $40 Dickies jacket paired with his Yeezy desert boots, black chinos and a white tee. While some might question Ye’s inspiration or motives for his outfit, the couple still managed to break necks.
