Met Gala 2017 Fashion Favourites

Met Gala Rei Kawakubo

Now that the Met Gala has wrapped up it’s annual party, it’s time for me to share some of my favourites of the night. If you don’t know what the Met Gala is, it’s a benefit to raise money for the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Each year, the party celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute’s exhibition. This year, the theme honours Rei Kawakubo, a Japanese fashion designer and founder of Comme des Garçons. Rei Kawakubo is known for her eclectic designs that push the boundaries of fashion. She experiments with textures and shapes that makes her pieces unique to her vision. Below are some of her high fashion and internationally marketed looks. Guests of the event are usually expected to dress in the theme but it is not mandatory.

Now time for my favourites of the evening 🙂 …

Met Gala 2017 Favourites

Rihanna Met GalaI have to start my favourites with the Queen of MET Gala fashion, Rihanna. Her elaborate outfit completely embodies Rei Kawakubo’s designs and for me, her look was one of the best of the night.

Jlo Arod Met GalaNext up on my list, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez. Seriously, I’m in love. 1. because they are so beautiful together and 2. her dress is absolutely stunning. I will be re-creating this hair look on the blog in the near future!

Met Gala Lily Rose DeppLily-Rose Depp in Chanel. I love everything about this look from the hair and makeup to the details of the dress. She is a real life doll!

Zendaya Met GalaZendaya in Dolce and Gabbana. When I first saw photos of this look, I said to myself, wow, this is the winner for me! And I stand by this. Zendaya can pull off anything and she does it so effortlessly.

Rami Malek Met GalaRami Malek in Dior Homme. This red suit was definitely a risk worth taking for Rami. The tailoring mixed with his confidence, put this look at the top for men’s fashion at the Gala. I’d love to see him as an honoury chairman at next year’s gala!

Liu Wen Met GalaLiu Wen in this beautiful denim and mesh gown. The mix of elements in this piece make it a standout for me.

Zoë Kravitz Met GalaZoë Kravitz in Oscar de la Renta. Stunning. The contrasting colours and textures blend seamlessly with one another.
