There’s always a lot of talk and chatter when it comes to Met Gala gowns and getups, and rightfully so – the night revolves around fashion and who “wore it best.” There was especially a lot of talk when Cara Delevigne revealed that she was wearing, or rather the lack thereof. The model and actress sported a satin red Dior number, and a lot of the talk came about when she removed her jacket to unveil her daring gold-painted bareness.
She clearly took the “Gilded Glamour” theme more seriously than most of the attendees, as she covered her body from the neck down in metallic body paint. She also wore red platforms and some gold jewelry, but no one was really paying attention to that. We love this daring look and give her a 10/10 for having the courage to pull something like this off!
Not Afraid to Turn Back Time
The "My Body" author and supermodel Emily Ratajkowski took a chance on the archives when she attended the Met Gala in 2022. She instantly turned a lot of heads as she arrived at the party in a multicolored and textured dress that went perfectly with the "Gilded Glamour" theme of the party.
The dress came from the 1992 Versace archive, and the key elements are a beaded bodice with a high front and a low front skirt. She wore her hair in a high bun to accentuate the look and fully show off the details of the neckline. Ratajkowiski clearly has a thing for bold entries, and she did not disappoint at that year's Met Gala.
Timothée Chalamet has proven that he has a knack for fashion on more than one occasion. It was no different in 2021 when the "Beautiful Boy" actor pitched up to the Met Gala as one of the event's youngest-ever co-chairs. He had a pretty nonchalant approach to the "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion" theme, but he still managed to rock the red carpet in all the right ways.
He may even be the only star who can wear sweatpants and high-top All-Stars to such a pristine event and get away with it. The star told one of the events reporters that his outfit paid homage to a handful of designers, including Chuck Taylor with his shoes and Haider Ackerman with his suit, and he accessorized with two vintage Cartier brooches from the 20s. We love Timothée and his unique style.
Why The Cap?
Memes started streaming into the internet when Kylie Jenner's 2022 Met Gala look was revealed to the world. She wore a wedding-ready voluminous white gown from Italian luxury brand Off-White, which featured a sheer corset bodice and ruffled skirt on the bottom half.
She also wore chandelier earnings and see-through stilettos, and the one thing that wasn't exactly approved by the internet was her white baseball cap and its attached veil. Besides the silly cap, it also looked like her outfit was inspired by a wedding. Who was she going to marry on the red carpet that night? We don't know either, but as one of the glamorous girls that she is, we expected something better.
Look Mom, No-Pants
Kendall Jenner sported one of her most dramatic looks when she attended the Met Gala in 2023. She ravished the "no-pants" trend with a glitzy black fully sequenced Marc Jacobs bodysuit. The statement piece also included a glimmery silver collar and extra long sleeves with white lining that trailed behind the star like a cape as she worked the red carpet.
Her lace-up platform boots were a nice touch to the whole look, and with a look like that, you can't go wrong with a high ponytail to accentuate all the features. Despite the fact that we like this look, Jenner received a lot of mixed reviews from critics and fans alike.
