The world’s A-listers come together at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art to attend the Met Gala. Here’s our roundup of the very best styles.
Every spring, the most A-list celebrities walk the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Met Gala. The stars wear their best, most daring and elegant outfits for the event, making it one of the biggest occasions for fashion and Hollywood. This year’s theme was “Rei Kawakubo/Comme Des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,” and was hosted by Anna Wintour, Tom Brady, Gisele Bündchen, Katy Perry, and Pharrell. Attendees often put their own original twist on the theme; and some ignore it entirely. Nevertheless, these stars’ artful ensembles outshone the rest.
1. Priyanka Chopra
The Quantico actress, although not the most famous person in attendance, gained the most attention with this trench-coat inspired look. Paired with tall, black boots and a bun to match, it is definitely one of the most daring outfits to grace the red carpet.
2. Bella Hadid
Shying away from the usual ball gown, model Bella Hadid opted for a sleeker outfit. Wearing a see-through Alexander Wang jumpsuit, she stunned even with such simple makeup and jewelry.
3. Jaden Smith
Carrying his recently shorn dreads in hand, Jaden Smith made a bold and original statement even in an all-black Louis Vuitton ensemble. His buzzed, blonde haircut and gold grills added an even edgier touch.
4. Zoë Kravitz
The Big Little Lies actress decided to go for a more elegant look, contrary to her usual rocker-bohemian style. The draping pink with black elements made for a perfect dress for the young actress, courtesy of designer Oscar de la Renta.
Solange often tops Met Gala best-dressed lists and is known for her original and eccentric style, and she did not disappoint last night. A sophisticated twist on the puffer jacket, this Thom Browne dress proves that Solange’s red carpet attire is unparalleled by anyone in Hollywood.
6. Lily Aldridge
Usually known for classic and simple dresses on the red carpet, the Victoria’s Secret model shocked everyone with a unique and daring turn. This Ralph Lauren piece includes a sheer, revealing dress, red thigh-high boots, and a magenta face veil to top it off.
Rap trio Migos was nothing short of “Bad and Boujee” for their Met Gala debut with matching black classic Versace suits. They added individual touches by having their own silver accessories and hairstyles.
Last but definitely not least, Rihanna, queen of the Met Gala, had one of the best outfits at the event once again. Staying true to the theme by wearing Comme Des Garçons, her garment was equal parts fearless and chic. She complemented her floral two-piece with red-hued elements, including her makeup and lace-up stilettos.
