For the singer Dua Lipa’s second Met Gala event in 2023, she opted for something classic. The predominantly white tweed dress with hints of black by Chanel resembled a ballgown dress that Claudia Schiffer sported for the fashion brand in 1992’s fall. The singer exemplified this chic vintage look, which definitely paid homage to the “Karl Lagerfeld” theme, with Tiffany & Co. diamonds set in a necklace.
The pendant paid homage to Audrey Hepburn, Lady Gaga, Mary Whitehouse, and Beyonce, who had similarly adorned yellow diamonds in the past. So, just as much as the dress was a part of history, so was her jewelry. The whole look affirmed Dua Lipa’s status as a fashion icon.
It’s simple and elegant, and Dua looks like royalty.
"The Girl on the Train" actress Haley Bennet is known for wearing peculiar outfits to red-carpet events, and we love that for her! At the 2017 Met Gala, the star rocked a theatrical floral headpiece, which pretty much consisted of an entire bouquet of faux flowers. The spectacular headpiece matched her lacey floral dress.
The star embraced the avant-garde theme beautifully in her Dolce and Gabbana piece. The only thing that may have let her look down a bit was perhaps her granny curls, which gave the 29-year-old at the time a few extra years. Besides that aspect, we pretty much think that every other aspect of her look, including her makeup, was top-notch!
This look is classy and she looks like a painting.
The director and star of "Don't Worry Darling" took a vintage approach to the Met Gala in 2023. Olivia Wilde wore a classical Chloé dress designed by Lagerfeld. The evening paid tribute to the iconic Karl Lagerfeld, and this little number definitely paid its dues to the theme, but we can't help but wonder if the original black, shorter version of the dress would have done more justice to the theme.
For some reason, this one seems a bit out of place at this event. The outfit was from a 1983 spring collection, which was entirely inspired by the shape of a violin. As one can see, the instrument is shaped in gold over the chest area. That's fine, but we aren't sure what relevance the violin holds at this occasion.
It's a fine outfit, but it isn't achieving that couture look that it's going for.
2019's Met Gala theme of "Camp" was really open for interpretation for most and definitely caused confusion for some, but Gigi Hadid went big and channeled her inner ice queen on this special evening. The supermodel bedecked the carpet in a catsuit of white, silver, and gold-streaked tones with a matching headpiece and platform shoes.
Her coat consisted of the same fabric as her catsuit, but it was adorned with white feathery bits. The look was put together by Michael Kors, who was also the star's date for the evening. Hadid went even further with her makeup as she wore elongated white eyelashes to create an over-the-top look. The star clearly has a thing for creating dramatic red carpet looks, as we have seen more than once, so we have to give it to her for her courageousness!
This, unfortunately, looks like a paper mache project more than a masterpiece.
Rihanna is the kind of woman who knows how to pull off a look, no matter how insane it is. In this case, the dress and the hat look like they weigh more than the Barbadian singer herself. She wore a jewel and pearl-encrusted dress, with matching miter and necklace, hoop earrings by Mari Tash, other jewelry pieces by Cartier, and of course Christian Louboutin shoes.
The whole look was put together by Maison Margiela, which marked the first time that the singer paraded this designer to the Met Gala. But the seasoned performer totally nailed 2018's theme, Catholic Imagination.
