The first Monday in May marks the biggest night in fashion: the Met Gala. And this year’s theme was Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons, which will also be displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute exhibition starting May 4th. But until then, here are the best dressed celebrities who were either bold enough to wear something daring or simply played it safe in the prettiest of gowns.
Liu Wen in this denim and sheer Off-White ensemble is the exact level of unexpectedness the red carpet needed.
Does anyone else love this as much as I do? I’ve had my eye on this Chanel haute couture pant suit since it was debuted on the runway earlier this year, and Cara Delevingne wears it so well. Also, how cool is her beauty look?
Shocking pink is not an easy colour to pull off and yet somehow, Lily-Rose Depp does. Then again, she’s wearing Chanel.
Coach finally does evening wear, and Selena Gomez wears it so well.
Emmy Rossum kept it safe in this Carolina Herrera ensemble. The femininity of the top juxtaposed against the trousers is perfect.
Jessica Chastain channels her inner Belle in a flowy chiffon Prada gown.
THIS is how you dress for a Rei Kawakubo theme. Rihanna wins once again in this Comme des Garcons look.
