After months of anticipation, the year’s biggest night in fashion returned to New York and the stars brought their A-game to the red carpet. This year’s dress code “gilded glamour” proved as an amazing source of inspiration and it was a blast to see how celebrities interpreted the theme.
This theme was all about honoring fashion trends of bygone eras and attendees did it in many different ways. Some of the night’s best looks transported us all the way back to the gilded age, with tons of fringe, bows, ruffles, feathers, and other decorative details.
Others literally took us back in time, starting with Kim Kardashian, who wore Marylin Monroe’s original “Happy birthday, Mr. President” gown designed by Jean Louis. Blake Lively also gave us one of the night’s most show-stopping moments in her Versace dress, which revealed a long turquoise train once the oversized golden bow was untied.
Golden gowns, in general, were all the rage at this year’s Met Gala, and Kardashian and Lively weren’t the only ones to embrace them. So did Megan Thee Stallion, Cardi B, and many other stars in attendance. The list of leading fashion trends also includes sheer black gowns, white dresses with a twist, statement headpieces and gloves, and tons of sequins, feathers, and ruffles.
Check out some of the most talked-about looks at this year’s Met Gala and see for yourself if your favorite stars stayed on theme.
