We love the FABULOUS & GLAM lifestyle... and every May the MET BALL GALA gets us all excited for the over-the-top glamour - it's the Superbowl of red carpet fashion and beauty after all!
This past Monday May 2nd was a notable night in fashion as it marked this year’s Met Gala for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. This fundraising event celebrates the Costume Institute’s exhibition theme as it sets the tone for what can be expected on the red carpet. This year’s theme, “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology”, was brought to life in highly creative and tech-inspired ways by talented designers. Whether celebrities embraced the theme or not, their looks were nothing short of fashionable and fabulous. Here’s a look at a few of our favourite looks from the night!
Who: Gigi Hadid (and beau Zayn Malik)
Wearing: Tommy Hilfiger
Why: Robots and Romance! This futuristic-looking duo made their debut as a couple in outfits that wowed alone, but together, made them one of the night’s most eye-catching couples.
Who: Kate Hudson
Wearing: Atelier Versace
Why: This bridal inspired look was an intricate blend of flowy iridescence and structural and textural cut outs – a combo that we loved!
Why: In addition to the silver “metal” hair Ciara was rocking, the intricate embellishments of her dress made metal look delicate and fierce all at once!
** Extra points for the gorgeous skin - we're in love with Ciara's beauty look and that flawless skin!
Who: Claire Danes
Wearing: Zac Posen
Why: This amazing dress stole the show last night – embedded with fiber optic lights, Posen really fused fashion and technology in an illuminating way!
