It’s impossible to forget the time that Rihanna made a lot of heads turn when she appeared at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2015. She graced the red carpet in a yellow Chinese couture getup by Guo Pei, complete with a long, flowing, imperial yellow cape.
The designer is incredibly popular with stars in China, and, since the pop diva reached for her garments, it has started to rise in popularity in the States as well. We think that she absolutely rocked this look, but later on, the star admitted that she felt a bit over-the-top. But anyway, who said that there’s anything wrong with an over-the-top look when it comes to the Met Gala?
Mix and Match
Sarah Jessica Parker’s 2006 fusion dress was a perfect choice for the Met Gala theme: "Anglomania: Tradition and Transgression in British Fashion." The outfit was designed by the legendary Alexander McQueen and looked just like something her character, Carrie Bradshaw, would wear to go out on the town in the streets of New York in her iconic series and movies "Sex and the City."
It was most definitely a controversial frock, but we think it was pulled off quite nicely. SJP rarely lets us down with her Met Gala attire, and this year was certainly no different. It’s been noted as one of her best of all time, according to "Allure" magazine.
First Time’s a Charm
When Celine Dion stepped onto the red carpet at her very first Met Gala in 2017, she was determined to make it count. With a “go big or go home” attitude, The singer later reported that when she was getting ready, it felt like a lot, “it’s like getting ready to kiss for the first time, this is huge!”
She opted for a wrap-style Isabel Marant dress that made a remarkably sexy slit starting at the waist, with a dark headpiece and matching smokey eyes. And let’s not forget the flashy sliver bodysuit. Choosing a pair of shoes couldn’t have been easy for her since she claims she has over 10,000 pairs.
The New York native designer Zac Posen is the magical godfather behind Doutzen Kroes’ Cinderella-like 2010 Gala gown. The dress was designed for the theme: "American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity." Aside from the gorgeous blue gown, sleek curls and red lipstick were a perfect touch to complete this classic look.
There were hardly any naysayers, and comments were, for the most part, raving about the beautiful look. “Now that’s a ball gown,” said one reviewer. Doutzen Kroes is a supermodel of Dutch descent. She began her modeling career in her native country but quickly got noticed and sent to New York, where she was instantly cast by Victoria’s Secret lingerie brand.
We all know that Cate Blanchett is an A-lister who rarely disappoints when she attends red-carpet events. She has attended many throughout her reign and is no stranger to having iconic fashion designer moments. On this particular red carpet event, Blanchett’s golden fringe gown by Balenciaga was a showstopper at the 2007 Gala.
She perfectly tuned in to the royal theme, "Poiret: King of Fashion," and accessorized just beautifully, with a golden clutch and turquoise earrings. The actress rarely disappoints when she makes her red-carpet appearances, so it should come as no surprise that she’s landed on the best-dressed list.
