Met Gala 2018 – #Favourites

Met Gala, which takes places on the first Monday of May every year, is known for the boldest and the best of fashion games. The theme for Met Gala 2018 – “Heavenly Bodies” was dedicated to the amalgamation of fashion and religion. As a result, we saw the celebrities going out of their comfort zone to serve the theme in the best manner possible. Here is the list of my favourites from yesterday night’s mega event:

  1. Blake Lively in Versace: My top favourite has to be Blake Lively who wore a custome-made Versace gown, which apparently took 600 hours in the making; the ruby hued gown with a corset and delicate embroidery  all over, with spikes in the hair suited the theme perfectly. She looked like a Goddess.

2. Priyanka Chopra in Ralph Lauren: For a second year in a row, Priyanka picked Ralph Lauren and hit the ball off the park again. I particularly loved the intricate veil / head gear and the vintage hairstyle.

3. Rihanna in Maison Margiela: Known to be the Queen of Met Galas, Rihanna nailed it again in a custom-made pearl embellished Maison Margeila which consisted of a strapless dress, a coat and a Pope’s hat as well. Easily one of the best dressed who also nailed the theme.

4. Frances McDormand in Valentino: McDormand was one of the very few in colours other than neutrals and cardinal red and brought a lot of drama in a Valentino blue cape and lime dress and boy, that fascinator must have caused some visibility issue but was definitely fascinating.

5. Bella Hadid in Gareth Pugh: Bella took the darker & gothic route in an all black look featuring a long cape. She looked quite fierce.

6. Lily Colins in Givenchy: While this may not have been my favourite outfit of all, but I liked Lily becuaee of the on-point make up and hair. Following in the footsteps of Bella, she nailed the gothic look as well.

7. Rosie Hutington in Ralph Lauren: A good example of how one could have worked a not-too-dramatic and elegant gown with the theme as well. Rosie looked quite regal in her angelic attire and I was really drawn towards that halo.

Now, it’s your time to tell me who was your favourite?

P.S. Also if you’re wondering why I didn’t feature Deepika Padukone who was present at Met Gala too, it’s because I was completely disappointed with her outfit and she got the theme all wrong. It seemed as if she was attending Filmfare or IIFA agai; no novelty whatsoever! Nonetheless, FYI she wore a Prabal Gurung red gown and here’s the picture from the event:
