As one of the world’s highest-paid actresses, Scarlett didn’t have to save money on a Met Gala dress. In 2018, she decided to spoil herself with a Marchesa ombré gown. It was rather controversial that she wore this fashion house’s dress as it recently went from an A-list favorite to a name that Hollywood stars are too afraid to be associated with, given the aftermath of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
Georgina Chapman is one of the co-founders of the fashion brand, and she is also the ex-wife of the aforementioned Weinstein. Either way, that didn’t seem to faze the star at all. This off-shoulder look isn’t our favorite, but we trust Johansson’s judgment. As one of Hollywood’s leading ladies, she knows what she’s doing!
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.
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!
Little Black Dress
Kylie Jenner, dubbed "Forbes's" youngest self-made billionaire in 2019 (or it later came out that she made it out to be that way under false pretenses), was dressed to the nines in 2019's Met Gala. In a long gown designed by Alexander Wang and bejeweled sunnies, she looks like she's ready to take on the world, though, let's admit it, she already kind of has.
This look is not only tame compared to what we're used to seeing at the Metropolitan Museum Gala, but it’s also tame for Jenner herself, who has been seen with almost every shade of hair color, but it still works.
Kristen Stewart ascended to fame when she portrayed Bella Swan in the "Twilight Saga" movies. Her 2019 Gala look was all about the hair and make-up. Her Chanel outfit is monochromatic, letting her hair orange hair and eyebrows shine. Kristen mentioned she was inspired by David Bowie, and it shows.
We love how edgy this look is. And you can’t deny that only Stewart (with the help of the best glam squad in the industry) was able to pull this Bowie-esque “camp” look off so brilliantly. The neurotic hair was the work of colorist Danila Moon and stylist Adir Abergel and they couldn’t have done a more stellar job than this.
