This year’s Met Gala theme was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. Fashion’s biggest night has come and gone once again, so let’s talk looks. This year brought religion to the red carpet. Some found it a controversy, even though The “Heavenly Bodies” exhibition has received the official stamp of approval from the Vatican. It was filled with hidden messages, crowns, crosses, heavy dresses, and dramatic trains. Did we leave anything out? Blake Lively introduced the world to the longest train ever. It was so long that she needed to take a party bus to the Metropolitan Museum’s annual gala. The gown reportedly took over 600 hours to embroider the sheer panels up to the side of her legs.
Jennifer Lopez walked the red carpet with her beau Alex Rodriguez. This marked her 10thappearance at Met Gala. Lopez looked flawless in her gown by Balmain designer, Olivier Rousteig. Lopez’s gown was a sequin mini dress in blue, gold and red jewels in the shape of a cross, with furry accents that were detailed to perfection.
Let’s not forget about Rihanna. She channeled the grandeur of Catholic vestments with a cream bejeweled gown layered beneath a flowing overcoat from Maison Margiela. The details on the dress were gorgeous. She topped it off, literally, with a bishop’s hat by Stephen Jones millinery. She finished it with custom Christian Louboutins. According to People, Rihanna said her dress was so heavy that ‘every step was a squat.’ Who do you think was the best dressed this year?
