Met Gala Page 1
Exactly how many trumpeters announced dinner at the Met Gala?
We certainly weren’t the only ones who put Kim Kardashian on our worst dressed lists after Monday night’s Met Gala. After all, let’s be honest: the sofa memes practically made themselves. But designer Riccardo Tisci is sticking staunchly by his vision, telling WWD that the floral, formfitting, custom Givenchy gown was the perfect mix of romance and rebellion and that Kardashian was “the most beautiful pregnant woman” he has ever dressed.
You’ve gotta love Instagram for lifting the veil on the crazy amount of work that goes into prepping celebrities for major events like the Met Gala. It’s no small feat putting together a look that will appease both Anna Wintour and the hordes of online critics while still being comfortable enough to rock the night away in. In fact, “Chaos to Couture” is probably an apt description for all of the teasing, trimming, shellacking, pinning, and fitting that goes into every look. Thanks to behind-the-scenes pics, we’ve got a look at how Jessica Biel, Madonna, Gisele Bündchen, and more got ready for the punk extravaganza.
Sometimes two dresses are better than one — especially when you’re going from a formal soirée at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to a late night party at the Standard Hotel. But while many guests at last night’s Met Gala opted to stick with their red carpet pick, a handful pulled out second designer looks for the latter half of the evening.
Some were pretty and some were punk, but these ten Met Gala attendees hit it out of the park with their not-so-chaotic couture.
In the world of punk-themed galas, there are two camps: the literal interpreters of the era’s gutter-and-grit days, and then those who opt for a glam reinvention of punk’s inspiration on couture fashion
The livestream of the 2013 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala has just ended, as Beyoncé strolled in (party can’t start ’til she walks in). If you didn’t get a chance to watch, we tracked every single start that strode in.
Start your engines and get your safety pins at the ready, folks! The Metropolitan Museum of Art 2013 Costume Institute Gala red carpet is well underway and we have every look right here.
The Met Gala is finally here, and we’ve got you a spot on the red carpet (sort of). Watch the fashion action live tonight at 7:00 PM EST, and hope that Beyoncé arrives on time.
Bad news for guys and dolls in Celebland…
Because punk may be dead, but capitalism is alive and kicking up it’s $3,000 heels!
The most exclusive invite of the season is being extended to more than a few gate crashers this year — well, sorta. The Met Gala is going to be more of a public spectacle than ever, with ramped up livestream coverage, social media tie-ins with industry insiders, and now a shop-the-red carpet initiative with co-sponsor Moda Operandi.
And the year of Beyoncé has taken strange turn, she’s just been named an honorary chair at the punk-themed Met Gala. Uh, we don’t know about you, but we’re having an extremely hard time picturing Queen B in some ripped sweater inspired by Johnny Rotten.
We all thought Jenna Lyons‘s Met Gala outfit consisted of a regular denim jacket and Schiaparelli pink skirt, but turns out that there’s more than meets the eye. She took to J. Crew‘s Tumblr to reveal the many secrets behind her ensemble.
We haven’t heard much about Beyoncé since the Met Gala — which was a whole two weeks ago! — so we’re more than pleased to share a few updates on Queen B.
Just in case you wanted to own a piece of Met Gala history, here’s your chance! Carey Mulligan is auctioning off the custom-made Prada halter dress that she wore to the fashionable fête on eBay to raise money for Oxfam America.
In today’s News of the Obvious, Anna Wintour probably banned Kim Kardashian from the Met Gala.
Brooke Shields looked pretty in a navy lace J. Mendel gown at last night’s Met Gala. But what was up with the cane?
We see London, we see France, we see Marc Jacobs‘s underpants.
