2019’s Met Gala theme of “Camp” was really open for interpretation for most and definitely caused confusion for some, but Gigi Hadid went big and channeled her inner ice queen on this special evening. The supermodel bedecked the carpet in a catsuit of white, silver, and gold-streaked tones with a matching headpiece and platform shoes.
Her coat consisted of the same fabric as her catsuit, but it was adorned with white feathery bits. The look was put together by Michael Kors, who was also the star’s date for the evening. Hadid went even further with her makeup as she wore elongated white eyelashes to create an over-the-top look. The star clearly has a thing for creating dramatic red carpet looks, as we have seen more than once, so we have to give it to her for her courageousness!
Classy and Elegant
In 2017, Priyanka Chopra made her Met Gala debut. The Hollywood and Bollywood icon graced the carpets with a tailored Ralph Lauren trench coat dress that made an extended train that most certainly got the star a lot of gasps of admiration. She was bejeweled in a pair of dramatic earrings and a weighty ring.
The 2000 Miss World pageant winner wore minimal yet effective makeup with black-heeled boots. The star's ensemble was a high state of style and grace, and her entrance alongside Nick Jonas definitely caused a big stir (as they had just started dating back then), but her stunning outfit was the actual thing that got everyone talking!
Rocking a Floral Headpiece from a Different Place
"The Girl on the Train" actress Haley Bennet is known for wearing peculiar outfits to red-carpet events, and we love that for her! At the 2017 Met Gala, the star rocked a theatrical floral headpiece, which pretty much consisted of an entire bouquet of faux flowers. The spectacular headpiece matched her lacey floral dress.
The star embraced the avant-garde theme beautifully in her Dolce and Gabbana piece. The only thing that may have let her look down a bit was perhaps her granny curls, which gave the 29-year-old at the time a few extra years. Besides that aspect, we pretty much think that every other aspect of her look, including her makeup, was top-notch!
Who Brought Their Violin to The Met?
The director and star of "Don't Worry Darling" took a vintage approach to the Met Gala in 2023. Olivia Wilde wore a classical Chloé dress designed by Lagerfeld. The evening paid tribute to the iconic Karl Lagerfeld, and this little number definitely paid its dues to the theme, but we can't help but wonder if the original black, shorter version of the dress would have done more justice to the theme.
For some reason, this one seems a bit out of place at this event. The outfit was from a 1983 spring collection, which was entirely inspired by the shape of a violin. As one can see, the instrument is shaped in gold over the chest area. That's fine, but we aren't sure what relevance the violin holds at this occasion.
One from the Archives
For the singer Dua Lipa's second Met Gala event in 2023, she opted for something classic. The predominantly white tweed dress with hints of black by Chanel resembled a ballgown dress that Claudia Schiffer sported for the fashion brand in 1992's fall. The singer exemplified this chic vintage look, which definitely paid homage to the "Karl Lagerfeld" theme, with Tiffany & Co. diamonds set in a necklace.
The pendant paid homage to Audrey Hepburn, Lady Gaga, Mary Whitehouse, and Beyonce, who had similarly adorned yellow diamonds in the past. So, just as much as the dress was a part of history, so was her jewelry. The whole look affirmed Dua Lipa's status as an iconic fashion icon.
