Celebrities tend to accessorize with some bizarre stuff at this annual event. Like Jared Leto, who we saw a few moments ago with his identical twin head. Sometimes these accessories work, but other times they just leave audiences wondering what they were thinking.
Just take Jaden Smith, for instance, who walked around on the carpet in 2017 with a handful of his dreadlocks, which he’d chopped off not long before. The Louis Vuitton suit he wore and some gold chains looked nice, but the hair kind of threw things off. So, let’s say he lands in the gray area of our list.
First Time’s a Charm
When Celine Dion stepped onto the red carpet at her very first Met Gala in 2017, she was determined to make it count. With a “go big or go home” attitude, The singer later reported that when she was getting ready, it felt like a lot, “it’s like getting ready to kiss for the first time, this is huge!”
She opted for a wrap-style Isabel Marant dress that made a remarkably sexy slit starting at the waist, with a dark headpiece and matching smokey eyes. And let’s not forget the flashy sliver bodysuit. Choosing a pair of shoes couldn’t have been easy for her since she claims she has over 10,000 pairs.
Mix and Match
Sarah Jessica Parker’s 2006 fusion dress was a perfect choice for the Met Gala theme: "Anglomania: Tradition and Transgression in British Fashion." The outfit was designed by the legendary Alexander McQueen and looked just like something her character, Carrie Bradshaw, would wear to go out on the town in the streets of New York in her iconic series and movies "Sex and the City."
It was most definitely a controversial frock, but we think it was pulled off quite nicely. SJP rarely lets us down with her Met Gala attire, and this year was certainly no different. It’s been noted as one of her best of all time, according to "Allure" magazine.
When it comes to the one-time queen of pop, Madonna, everyone knows that her fashion sense can be fabulous but at the same time outrageous from time to time. The outfit Madonna pulled out for the 2009 Met Gala confused people everywhere. Was she trying to channel her "Like a Virgin" self?
The short, puffy dress, thigh-high boots, and strange accessories all screamed, “I’m going to shoot a music video – in the ‘80s.” The look was a big miss for the night’s theme: "The Model as a Muse: Embodying Fashion." Unless, perhaps, she was traveling back in time to embody the fashion of decades past.
Jared Leto turned heads – two of which belonged to him – at the 2019 Met Gala when he showed up in this bright red, bedazzled getup. But it wasn’t so much the outfit that landed him on our list, but the fact he was toting a one-of-a-kind accessory that made little sense: a life-like replica of his head.
The look was a nod to Alessandro Michele’s “Cyborg” runway show in 2018, where he sent his models down the runway carrying their own “severed heads.” The “30 Seconds to Mars” singer wore a red Gucci-designed suit to go with his banging accessory. The adorning diamantes over the capey suit really pulled the whole off nicely.
