The theme for the 2017 Met Gala was “Gilded Glamour and White Tie.” This year’s event challenged attendees to interpret the event’s inspirations. From the upper echelons of society to the world of science fiction, the gala’s theme was a reflection of the times. There were literally hundreds of references to the event. Here’s a look at four celebs who knew exactly how to interpret the theme.
The Comme des Garcons designer Rei Kawakubo was the honorary chair at the Met Gala this year. The designer is also linked to a variety of other artists, including Pharrell Williams, who launched his perfume with Comme de Garcons in 2014.
The 2015 Met Gala theme was “China Through the Looking Glass.” The gala celebrated a new Asian exhibit at the museum. The theme inspired many guests to interpret the look through their clothing. Miley Cyrus skipped the gala, but still managed to wear a look that merged grunge with space age fashion. However, her outfit did not fit the theme. Many Twitter users took to social media to criticize Kloss’ look.
The Costume Institute’s exhibit on the history of fashion will highlight some of the most influential models in the twentieth century. This exhibit will feature images and video footage of famous models during their respective eras. The exhibition will also include dresses from Britain, including one designed by Linda Fargo and worn by Diane von Furstenberg. This exhibit is an excellent opportunity to view the evolution of fashion over the years. There’s no doubt that the Met Gala is one of the premier events in the fashion industry.
Last year’s Met Gala featured Yves Saint Laurent, the first living designer to be featured in the event. The new exhibition will feature 120 pieces by the legendary Japanese fashion designer. In addition to Saint Laurent, Rei Kawakubo will act as honorary chair. This year, the Met Gala celebrates Rei Kawakubo’s influence in the fashion world. The design of this exhibit is highly symbolic, and it is an inspiration to many.
Last year’s theme of “Heavenly Bodies” gave attendees plenty of opportunities to express their creativity. Rihanna wore a Atelier Versace bodysuit, while Chadwick Boseman wore a Ralph Lauren gown with a halo. The red carpet was full of stars in retro-fabulous outfits. Rihanna, meanwhile, accessorized her Versace minidress with a golden halo.
Besides Rihanna and Zayn Malik, other celebrities who wore outfits that reflected the theme. The 2017 Met Gala honors the most inventive, eccentric, and creative fashion designers. Guests are expected to dress according to the theme of the exhibit. Traditionally, the event is chaired by British fashion and culture journalist Anna Wintour. The guest list is as impressive as any Hollywood awards show, with A-list celebrities mixing with political heavyweights.
The Met Gala 2020 theme drew inspiration from the early twentieth-century philosopher Henri Bergson and the Sally Porter film The Orlando. This year’s theme was inspired by a scene from The Orlando featuring Tilda Swinton. She is wearing a late 18th century French-style robe as she navigates through a maze, and finally reaches 1850s England. The resulting theme was “Gilded Age,” with a focus on the evolution of fashion throughout the 19th century.
