The New York native designer Zac Posen is the magical godfather behind Doutzen Kroes’ Cinderella-like 2010 Gala gown. The dress was designed for the theme: “American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity.” Aside from the gorgeous blue gown, sleek curls and red lipstick were a perfect touch to complete this classic look.
There were hardly any naysayers, and comments were, for the most part, raving about the beautiful look. “Now that’s a ball gown,” said one reviewer. Doutzen Kroes is a supermodel of Dutch descent. She began her modeling career in her native country but quickly got noticed and sent to New York, where she was instantly cast by Victoria’s Secret lingerie brand.
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.
It’s impossible to forget the time that Rihanna made a lot of heads turn when she appeared at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2015. She graced the red carpet in a yellow Chinese couture getup by Guo Pei, complete with a long, flowing, imperial yellow cape.
The designer is incredibly popular with stars in China, and, since the pop diva reached for her garments, it has started to rise in popularity in the States as well. We think that she absolutely rocked this look, but later on, the star admitted that she felt a bit over-the-top. But anyway, who said that there’s anything wrong with an over-the-top look when it comes to the Met Gala?
We all know that Cate Blanchett is an A-lister who rarely disappoints when she attends red-carpet events. She has attended many throughout her reign and is no stranger to having iconic fashion designer moments. On this particular red carpet event, Blanchett’s golden fringe gown by Balenciaga was a showstopper at the 2007 Gala.
She perfectly tuned in to the royal theme, "Poiret: King of Fashion," and accessorized just beautifully, with a golden clutch and turquoise earrings. The actress rarely disappoints when she makes her red-carpet appearances, so it should come as no surprise that she’s landed on the best-dressed list.
Elle Fanning probably couldn’t handle much of anything herself on the night of the 2019 Meg Gala when she appeared in this ‘70s-styled Miu Miu bell-bottom and wing-sleeved salmon-colored outfit. Each of her nails was done up in something that extended a good inch from her fingertips.
But she did do the theme, "Camp: Notes on Fashion," justice with the overall look. We definitely think that the color of her outfit popped with her gorgeous locks of blonde hair. However, we do feel like she could have easily lost the tacky necklace, which kind of seems like it threw her whole outfit out of the window.
