When it came time to dress for 2018’s Met Gala, saint J.Lo knew exactly what to do. Leave it to the star to gleam a holier-than-thou radiant dress that most definitely turned a lot of heads on this night and for all the right reasons. She went for a literal interpretation of the theme “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” wearing a giant cross across her chest.
The bejeweled Balmain dress was made especially for her by Olivier Rousteing. The gown was inspired by an ’88 “Vogue” cover, and it took over a month to make! It was definitely worth it, this one.
God is a Woman
Rihanna is the kind of woman who knows how to pull off a look, no matter how insane it is. In this case, the dress and the hat look like they weigh more than the Barbadian singer herself. She wore a jewel and pearl-encrusted dress, with matching mitre and necklace, hoop earrings by Mari Tash, other jewelry pieces by Cartier and of course Christian Louboutin shoes.
The whole look was put together by Maison Margiela, which marked the first time that the singer paraded this designer to the Met Gala. But the seasoned performer totally nailed 2018's theme, Catholic Imagination. Her dress makes her look like an opulent, godly pope. Work it, girl!
Marked With a White Dress
Ashley Frangipane, otherwise known as the famed singer Halsey, wore white from head to toe in a garment inspired by '80s cult classic "Blade Runner. " The dress was designed with the movie's female lead in mind and was tailored out of old jackets and dresses.
The theme for the iconic event in 2016 was “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” so you can’t deny that the star hit the nail on the head with this theme. With cotton satin and stretch silk, Halsey looks classy and edgy at the same time. She has DKNY designers to thank for this successful design.
The Wrong Color
This look that the singer and actress Selena Gomez wore to 2018’s Met Gala event scored her a shameful place in many of the year's worst-dressed list. Not only was it considered a failure, but it has also sparked some controversy.
Many complained that her tan and makeup made her look as if she was from a different ethnicity. While the dress is not great, it isn't as bad as the hair and makeup. Some critics even bashed the star, claiming that she went through a horrible “tanning failure.” Yikes! Selena is a natural beauty, and we're sure her next Met Gala look is going to be spectacular.
The Corporate Look
Karlie Kloss is an American supermodel and has been declared by Vogue Paris as one of the “top 30 models of the 2000s.” Her job as a model is to take pictures wearing elaborate garments. Maybe this is why she chose such a simple look for the Met. The dress is inspired by something one would wear to the office, only, you know, not actually.
This take on office attire is a bit too revealing to be worn in a business meeting. Either way, while this is a nice look, we were underwhelmed by both the dress and the hair and makeup.
