Donatella Versace is a noteworthy representative of her iconic Italian fashion house’s style of opulence and jubilance. She is easily recognizable thanks to her lush platinum blonde locks and has been slaying in the fashion industry since the late 70s when she took charge of Versace’s advertising campaigns.
Well, you may most likely recognize this dress as worn by another certain singer at another major event, but long before J. Lo donned it; Donatella Versace herself wore the Versace gown to the 1999 Met Gala. The theme that year was “Rock Style,” and Tommy Hilfiger sponsored the entire event. Well, the dress looked great both times, so it’s no wonder Lopez chose to wear it the following year to the Grammys.
That’s a Wrap
As per the usual Met Gala tradition, some attendees of the event always manage to make headlines for the things they choose to wear, and by this, we’re referring to none other than Madonna. She has a thing for baring it all on the red carpet, which was extra apparent when she showed up to the 2016 Met Gala in a Givenchy Haute Couture dress.
But it was the black tape that she donned all over her body that really made the look. But when you’re Madonna going to the Met Gala – you can pretty much get away with wearing anything or nothing at all.
Nun Other Than
If there ever was a Latin star that everyone wanted to see at the annual Met Gala then it’s probably got to be this one. "Baby Driver" actress Eiza Gonzalez, of Mexican descent, completely nailed the "Heavenly Bodies" theme at the 2019 event when she arrived in this daring Prabal Gurung ensemble.
It had a little bit of a naughty and nice flair to it, between the black, cutout front, and trailing white cape. She may not look like any nun that will be teaching Sunday school anytime soon, but she definitely wins for the best looks of the evening.
What the Puff
The look on the faces of everyone standing behind and looking at Pharrell Williams’ wife, Helen, on the red carpet, says it all. It’s the same look that’s probably on your face right now as you’re trying to figure out what on earth she’s wearing, too. Even Pharrell doesn’t look too comfortable himself as he stands beside his wife and her daring dress for the 2017 Met Gala.
The outfit, a look created by Comme des Garçons, looks like an odd-shaped puffer jumper. Granted, that year’s Gala was based on the avant-garde designer, Rei Kawakubo, the face behind the line. Still, we say, “Why?” Or maybe, “What?”
The stunning supermodel Taylor Hill was only 23 years old when she walked the carpet at the 2019 Met Gala. She was turning a lot of heads while looking lovely in a Ralph Lauren dress adorned in Butani and Yvan Tufenkjian jewels. Everything about her look, from the gown to the jewelry to the gloves and hairstyle, screamed “old Hollywood.”
She earned herself a spot on many best-dressed lists that year for her choice in attire. Hill is both a model and actress and has been known for her work as a Victoria’s Secret Angel, which she started in 2015.
