Cameron Diaz looked like a breath of fresh air when she arrived at 2007’s event in a layered Christian Dior gown in bright fuchsia color. For the “Poiret: King of Fashion” theme, she accentuated her bright-colored, shifty dress with a large, matching turquoise necklace and earrings set. This was the actress’s first appearance at the event, and boy, oh boy, did she leave her mark on this particular night.
This was also around the time that the star was at the height of her fame, and she certainly knew how to dress up for the party on this particular night. Apparently, layered dresses were in that year, as the other woman seen here on the red carpet is wearing one as well.
Swimming in Plaid
Julie Macklowe blended into the rest of the over-the-top looks at the 2017 Gala, even though she looked like a tablecloth mixed with someone who was throwing on random things they found in a Halloween bin in their attic. We are not too sure where exactly her arms went.
But That’s the thing – no one really knows. It remains a mystery to this day. The American socialite used to be in finance, working for JPMorgan Partners in Asia, but she later founded vbeaute which is now a former beauty and skincare line for women. In 2008, Macklowe was dubbed Vogue magazine’s “It Girl.”
Jennifer Lopez is under no circumstances unfamiliar with the Met Gala ceremonies. Since her first attendance at this exclusive event, she has consistently been glamorizing the evening with her extravagant presence. This eye-catching, fuchsia-colored Gucci gown turned all heads towards Jennifer Lopez as she walked the carpet at the 2011 Gala.
Some say that the shrug overwhelms the look a bit, but it received mixed reviews, as others said she carried it well and didn’t let it distract from the overall beauty of the flowy dress. She kept her hair sleekly pulled back and chose to carry a small clutch so as not to overpower the attire.
Bell of the Ball
The “Romeo + Juliet” actress Claire Danes rocked a Cinderella-esque Zach Posen dress at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 2016 Met gala event. The drapey blue gown is stunning on its own, but it’s a fact it glowed in the dark that made it particularly spectacular.
Later, Posen revealed that, even though it may look heavy, it’s actually hollowed out on the inside and, therefore, super lightweight. She wins for that year’s theme: "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.” One can also see the dress’s outer shiny layer that gives it a whole electric look, which goes perfectly with the party’s theme. Well done to her and her dress designer!
Jared Leto turned heads – two of which belonged to him – at the 2019 Met Gala when he showed up in this bright red, bedazzled getup. But it wasn’t so much the outfit that landed him on our list, but the fact he was toting a one-of-a-kind accessory that made little sense: a life-like replica of his head.
The look was a nod to Alessandro Michele’s “Cyborg” runway show in 2018, where he sent his models down the runway carrying their own “severed heads.” The “30 Seconds to Mars” singer wore a red Gucci-designed suit to go with his banging accessory. The adorning diamantes over the capey suit really pulled the whole off nicely.
