Best dressed from the Met Gala 2018
Share This Article:
The first Monday of May is no doubt the most exciting Monday of the year, and this years annual Met Gala did not dissapoint.
The theme - Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.
With the theme verging on controversial, it was hard to know what to expect from the attendees of the event, but narrowing the best dressed down was so difficult - everyone pulled it out the bag.
Though there were plenty reserved and plainer looks this year, guests who followed the theme did with a vengeance, and with nods towards biblical figures and classic paintings, it was perhaps the most creative gala yet.
Rihanna in Galliano
Rihanna is without a doubt the Met queeeen and every year without fail she pulls it out the bag and nails the theme.
This year it looks like a nod to the Pope or Bishop for inspiration, but with a totally embellished, asymmetrical style done in crystals in pearls. Her headpiece is everything.
Sarah Jessica Parker in Dolce Alta Moda
SJP blurring the lines between herself and Carrie Bradshaw yet again with this amazing Dolce Alta Moda gown.
The dress is all levels of unreal but it’s the headpiece that really does it for me, hello she is wearing a literal Neapolitan nativity scene… on her head?! 10/10 for creativity and pulling off this larger than life look like only she could.
Lana Del Ray & Jared Leto in Gucci
A couple’s costume that follows the theme, and looking this good, is such a winner at the Met. Wearing custom Gucci and evidently taking inspiration from prominent Catholic figures, they totally won nailing the theme.
Sza in Versace
Another nod to a Catholic figure, Sza goes for the Weeping Madonna look but has made it completely her own with a funky fun look.
I love the baby pink, it is so her colour, and the fluffy tule and embellished combo brings something really fun to the Gala. Her huge headpiece and those tiny gold tears running down her face is what brings the outfit together.
Ariana Grande in Vera Wang
Ariana is a true work of art in this Vera Wang dream.
The print coming from an iconic painting, Michelangelo’s Last Judgement, turns this look into something so iconic itself and she wears it so beautifully. Even the style of the dress is so graceful and her toned down make up and hair adorned with matching fabric makes the dress the total focus.
Chadwich Boseman in Versace
Men who follow the theme - yes!
Chadwick completely blew the rest of them in their black tux’s out of the water with this avant-garde ensemble. The cape, the regal gold crosses, the pattern trousers and crimson finishes - what an absolute look. He has not come to play.
