You have probably been hearing all about the Met Gala and the celebrities who attended it. But what exactly is this gala about and who gets to be in it? Well, here it is and it would probably put you to sleep, but the Met Gala is the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit. To make it sound like fun, it is the Oscars of the East Coast. Naturally, it boasts of its celebrity attendees and fashionistas, who bring their glitz and glam to the Red Carpet. This year, too, the gala saw many vivid fashion trends, brought by celebrities who seemed to have forgotten the Gala’s black-tie theme. Take a look at some of the biggest trends of the night:
Dazzling the Red Carpet
The red carpet shone with celebs’ sparkling outfits. Many chose to dress in all silver and metallic outfits, including the biggest fashionista sisters, Kylie Jenner and Kim KardashianWest.
Comfortable in their Own Skin
Cutouts were very popular at this year's Gala, sported by many supermodels, including Naomi Campbell, Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss and Lily Aldridge.
Birds of a Feather
Ruffles and feathers made an appearance more than twice. Zoe Saldana and Rita Ora’s long trails followed them all the way around.
Many celebs ditched the nude for a darker shade of lips. Taylor Swift, Lorde, Hailee Steinfeld, Rachel McAdams, Brie Larson were all seen sporting dark and deep shades.
Gearing for Battle
The Gala was a fight to be the best dressed on the red carpet and some celebs took that challenge up so seriously, they actually arrived wearing armor! Check out Zayn Malik’s super swanky outfit.
Lady Gaga and Katy Perry were, as usual, decked up for Halloween. Solange Knowles, too, seems to have misplaced her calendar and wound up looking like a sunflower craft.
It’s Past Bedtime
The Gala took place late at night and some celebs did not want to miss bedtime. The Dakotas thus decided to wear their nightgowns and Selena Gomez attempted to cover hers with a leather bra over it.
The Men of the Night
Many male celebs ditched the traditional black-and-white tux and opted for a more colorful outfit. Will.I.Am decided to have a floral pattern on his suit, with his face covered by a veil.
New couples were spotted at the Red Carpet, primarily the Hadid sisters with their arm candies. Kimye were back with their twinning look and Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban looked very much in love, as ever.
