Met Gala 2018

Fun fact. Some of the first things I ever posted on this blog way back when, involved celebrity fashion & looking at different award show and celebrity event outfits. One of my favourites to comment on was the Met Gala, considering that it's basically one giant, expensive fancy dress party with the most elaborate themes - it's safe to say it's right up my street.

So, perhaps it's time for a little throwback as I share my favourite looks from the 2018 Met Gala. 

The theme this year was 'Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,' a demonstration of how religion, specifically catholicism and the artwork created based off it has affected and influenced fashion throughout the years. It's safe to that this theme had so much potential and the celebrities definitely took this in their stride and we witnessed a variety of looks ranging from holier than though to borderline blasphemy.

Amanda Seyfried wearing Prada

Amanda Seyfried is rocking this yellow gown, normally a colour that paler, blonde women tend to avoid (speaking from experience) but she looks absolutely amazing. The dress isn't the most intricate but the detail of the sleeving gives it a nice touch and makes it a bit more special.

Blake Lively wearing Versace

Blake Lively looks like an absolute goddess in this dress. She crushes it every year and this year is no exception. Her look perfectly encompasses the theme but also maintains a sense of classic glamour.

Emilia Clarke wearing Dolce & Gabbana 

Bow down to our khaleesi. Emilia Clarke looks incredible in this outfit, the dress is completely stunning but I love that she's created a full look using dramatic hair accessories and makeup. 

Frances McDormand wearing Valentino 

Now this is an example of what the Met Gala is all about - going all out and not giving a damn. Take notes guys.

Katharine McPhee wearing Georges Chakra 

I don't know how in keeping with the theme this dress is but she looks amazing none the less. The beautiful baby blue colour really compliments her hair. Sometimes see through dresses can go very very wrong, but this dress is definitely an exception - sexy and classy. 

Katy Perry wearing Versache

Anyone who wears giant angel wings are on to a winner.

Lily Collins wearing Givenchy 

I love that Lily Collins has taken the theme and made it goth as hell - a woman after my own heart. The dress itself isn't the most wow, but the hair accessory and her makeup really brings the look together. I love, love, love that red tear. 

Chadwick Boseman wearing Versache

I love when men actually make an effort to dress up for the theme, so many just cop out with a suit, but not this guy. He looks absolutely killer, like an absolute king. Wakanda Forever.

Jennifer Lopez wearing Balmain 

I'm not the biggest fan of the feathers at the bottom, but the embellishments at the top of the dress are a real stand out and make it such a statement piece. 

Ruby Rose wearing Tommy Hilfiger 

Ruby Rose looks absolutely stunning in this red number, she definitely rocks this colour. I actually like the simplicity of this dress, whilst it isn't stand out obvious of the theme, I can definitely detect notes of subtle symbolism that makes it fit so well.

Zendaya wearing Versace 

My number one gal Zendaya has crushed it yet again. Her Joan of Arc inspired look is an absolute masterpiece. She looks so stunning, but also so badass - she could definitely cut a man in half with those shoes.

Stella Maxwell wearing Moschino

I love the straight up and down design paired with the intricate embellishments, the look almost contradicts itself, whilst at the same time working together really well. I must say the way her long, flowing blonde locks are styled are the real winner for me. I have major hair envy.

SZA wearing Versache

Not the biggest fan of the boots, but the rest of the look is absolutely gorgeous. I love the pastel pink gown, it really compliments her skin tone and suits her so well. 

Taylor Hill wearing Diane von Furstenberg

I love this look because it encompasses similar designs of attire worn within the catholic church but is vamped up to look hella sexy, a delicious contradiction which makes this outfit both heavenly and sinful.

Tessa Thompson wearing Thom Browne 

I love this look, it's very simple and very chic. Not the most in keeping with the theme but she looks so fabulous that I'm willing to brush over that. Her makeup is a really winner for me also.

It's so hard for me to pick an absolute favourite look, but my top 3 would have to be from Blake Lively, Zendaya & Chadwick Boseman. 

I'm not going to sit here and be a keyboard troll and slate the outfits that I don't like, I like to think I've had some personal growth since the days when I used to make fun of the outfits that I thought were terrible, at the end of the day it's not my place to judge, if people are happy in what they are wearing then that's all that matters.

What I will say is that I do find it a little bit disappointing when a theme is made and people make little effort to partake. With situations like this it's not like money is an issue, or there's a worry that you'll look a fool. It's literally the point, all I'll say is that if I ever got the opportunity to end the Met Gala I'd be all over that, like I'd give Queen Rihanna a run for her money, just saying. 

It's nice to be back into the blogging world, it's most definitely been a while. What an extra nice way to come back by talking about one of my most favourite topics, crazy fancy dress fashion.

What were your favourite looks?

  1. Those first three gowns look gorgeous! I also love the George Chakra creation being worn by Katherine McPhee. I think I may like the yellow Prada gown being worn by Amanda Seyfried the best - but it's possible I may have let my pick be influenced by having liked her in the movie 'Mama Mia'.
