Met Gala Recap

The Met Gala is an annual fundraising event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, where celebrities and wealthy socialites gather for the evening. Every year, the premier event’s red carpet is walked by influential people from the art, fashion, film, and music industries and is sure to showcase some glamorous, chic evening gowns.

At this year’s gala, there were quite a few celebrities on my best dressed list. Cara Delevigne and Rihanna stunned in Stella McCarthy, while Beyonce and Erykah Badu wore Givenchy Haute Couture, and new comer Lupita Nyong’o wowed us with a bold Prada ensemble.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s beautiful Oscar De La Renta gown had the designer’s name embroidered on the train and actress Emma Stone frolicked in Thakoon separates.

The top trends of the evening included formal crop tops, worn by Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, and Emma Stone. Some women such as SJP, Karlie Kloss, and Dakota Johnson all wore regal elbow length gloves. Statement headpieces was also noticed at the Gala, specifically Kate Upton, Beyonce and Lupita Nyong’o.

As for the men of the night, Kanye West, Bradley Cooper, and Benedict Cumberbatch daringly sported regal coattail tuxedos.
