Rihanna is the kind of woman who knows how to pull off a look, no matter how insane it is. In this case, the dress and the hat look like they weigh more than the Barbadian singer herself. She wore a jewel and pearl-encrusted dress, with matching mitre and necklace, hoop earrings by Mari Tash, other jewelry pieces by Cartier and of course Christian Louboutin shoes.
The whole look was put together by Maison Margiela, which marked the first time that the singer paraded this designer to the Met Gala. But the seasoned performer totally nailed 2018’s theme, Catholic Imagination. Her dress makes her look like an opulent, godly pope. Work it, girl!
Not Patriotic Enough
With a theme like "American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity," we would have expected to see something a little bit more patriotic. But perhaps January Jones wasn’t in the mood to play with the rules on this particular year’s event. While her eyeshadow is blue, and her hair is red (well, orange), we can't really see how her dress fits the theme.
You can’t deny that She always looks stunning, but this purple Yves Saint Laurent dress didn't really leave an impression on us. Sadly, it was quite forgettable if you compare it to other looks that she has donned in the past.
The 2019 Met Gala was one of the best ones yet, simply because its theme, "Camp: Notes on Fashion," allowed for some of the craziest outfits we have ever seen. "Riverdale" star Lili Reinhart attended the ball with her then-boyfriend, Cole Sprouse.
We are undecided about this dress (if you can call it that); while the color suits Lili and her hair and makeup are gorgeous, something about the proportions of this dress is a little bit off. More than a dress, it seems like tailored track shorts with oversized sleeves on top with a floral headpiece. But she still manages to look spectacular in it, somehow.
Marked With a White Dress
Ashley Frangipane, otherwise known as the famed singer Halsey, wore white from head to toe in a garment inspired by '80s cult classic "Blade Runner. " The dress was designed with the movie's female lead in mind and was tailored out of old jackets and dresses.
The theme for the iconic event in 2016 was “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” so you can’t deny that the star hit the nail on the head with this theme. With cotton satin and stretch silk, Halsey looks classy and edgy at the same time. She has DKNY designers to thank for this successful design.
A Cross Across
When it came time to dress for 2018's Met Gala, saint J.Lo knew exactly what to do. Leave it to the star to gleam a holier-than-thou radiant dress that most definitely turned a lot of heads on this night and for all the right reasons. She went for a literal interpretation of the theme “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” wearing a giant cross across her chest.
The bejeweled Balmain dress was made especially for her by Olivier Rousteing. The gown was inspired by an '88 "Vogue" cover, and it took over a month to make! It was definitely worth it, this one.
