“Scandal”‘s Kerry Washington adorned a Prada gown at the 2015 Met Gala. In a pink princess dress with embroidery on its train to somewhat match the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ theme. The actress looked absolutely flawless as she paraded the red carpet-event. The voluminous frock was just the best choice to impress everyone at the Gala.
The dress featured a low back and a bow where vast sections of the train rendered an enchanted silhouette. Kerry’s jewel-toned emerald green accessories added an element of quirkiness that goes with the Prada vibe, and her smokey eye sealed the deal and made this look unforgettable.
This gorgeous garment was designed by "Project Runway" season four winner Christian Siriano. The sparkly bejeweled orange tuxedo and the magnificent cape both took two months to make. "American Horror Story" and "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy reported the garment celebrated child prodigy Liberace.
The star told People, “But it’s rooted in a real costume that Liberace donned called the Neptune.” He also added that he loved the “camp” theme because it’s a great, joyful, tender, and ironic word to play around with. The outfit weighs over 100 lbs, and apparently, it took a hefty five people to support the procedure of getting the thing on, but no pain, no gain, right? This look is a winner!
This dress is gold! It literally looks like Hathaway is wearing liquid gold. The cape-like dress was custom-designed for Anne by no other than Ralph Lauren. The story behind the dress is just as exciting. Apparently, the gown was inspired by Buddha.
The star told Vanity Fair, “I found a number of contemporary Chinese artists that I liked, and I sent the ideas over to Ralph Lauren, and this one was what we decided to interpret - we interpreted Buddha with a hoodie.” The actress knocked 2015's (China: Through the Looking Glass) theme out of the park. And if there ever was a time that a celebrity managed to make a hoodie look extra classy, then it’s got to be this time.
Red & Blue
This dress is pretty and would work great for a red carpet or a movie premiere, but not for the Met Gala. Don't get us wrong, Jessica Chastain looks divine in this Prada gown. You can't really go wrong with blue silk, right?
The dress is beautifully constructed, and Jessica's makeup and hair are also spot-on; we just think she could have done more. Luckily, the star really managed to compensate for this at the 2023 “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” themed Met Gala. She exchanged her signature ginger head for platinum blonde, and she sported a stunningly sleek black dress.
When the theme is "Camp," and the attendee is RuPaul, the campiest drag queen out there, we'd expect to be blown away. RuPaul’s criteria for putting on his full drag attire is quite similar to the supermodels of the 90’s criteria for getting up and out of bed: only if there’s money involved. “I do it if someone is paying me to do it,” he said to Marketplace.
We do applaud the "Drag Race" host and producer for not taking the easy way out and showing up in an enormous dress. On the other hand, his striped sequin suit just wasn't enough.
