Hey there my lovelies,
Welcome back to my Blog!
Today’s post is a #bonus one, as I do not normally post any other day other than Fridays, but hey, yesterday was the first Monday in May which annually brings together the great and the good from the realms of fashion, music and film for the Met Gala, otherwise known as the most fashionable night of the year.
This year the exhibition was titled “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” giving out the feeling of drama and this year was not short of this with crowns, crosses, and wings, the 2018 Met Gala red carpet was full of over-the-top ensembles that combined high-fashion and religion.
So I have compiled my top faves from last night.
Up first is Rihanna wearing Maison Margiela by John Galliano. The beading is undeniably intricate, and she’s absolutely pulls off the Pope-chic look without doubt. Simply put, Rihanna is very, very good at embracing the costume dresses without letting them overshadow her essence.
Fashion’s high priestess Anna Wintour stepped onto the red carpet dressed as a Cardinal in Chanel, Also, is that a diamond rosary around her neck?
Gigi Hadid arrives in a sweeping all-over embellished asymmetrical gown by one of the event’s co-host, Donatella Versace.
In my opinion Rita looked divine in a custom Prada dress which is just gorgeous and colorful. Capped with a headpiece that reportedly took three days to make!!!!
Well in my eyes Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing cannot do any wrong and this dress for Jennifer Lopez is just WOW. It has everything I love from Balmain, the heavily embellished corset gown and the thigh-revealing slit!!!
Sarah Jessica Parker
I love SJP and for me she shone in the embellished Dolce & Gabbana with ruffled sleeves and a cathedral train dress. But the best part was the towering crown on top of her head, which featured a jewel-encrusted Neapolitan Nativity scene inside.
Arguably the golden era for the Catholic church, the Renaissance provided ample inspiration for actor Amanda Seyfried’s golden Prada gown accessorised with an H.Stern tiara and beautiful wavy locks.
If this were The Met Gala: the Hampton Archives, then Blake would be right on top of the list. Henry VIII would have married her twice for this alone (haha). Created by Versace, the actress’ gown was an incredibly ornated with ruby and gold design that featured some pretty intricate and extensive beading.
Priyanka chose again Ralph Lauren, the same designer who created her trench gown for the 2017 gala. The Quantico’s star fitting gown, accentuating her beautiful curves at just the right places, seemed to fit the bill. Especially, the head gear which gave off a high priestess vibes. And if the looks of it did bot swoop you off your feet here is a fun fact from Ralph Lauren’s Instagram page about the hood: “This Ralph Lauren creation is completely crafted by hand, with Swarovski crystals, meticulous beadwork, and over 250 hours of embroidery.”
Well these were my favourite … what were yours?
Until next time,
