Met Gala 2015 – The Gowns That Got People Talking | Fashion News
Last night’s Met Gala in New York City saw A-listers taking on the theme (‘China: Through The Looking Glass’) with memorable and sometimes daring outfits, whilst being banned from taking selfies or using social media. Meanwhile, those keeping up with the event took to Twitter to comment on the gowns, with Rihanna’s regal yellow gown by Chinese couture designer Guo Pei providing plenty of opportunities for Photoshop and internet memes, which often compared her long train to various foods.
Sarah Jessica Parker also provoked both hilarity and interest as she paired a fiery headdress with a custom H&M gown and red poppy corsage, while Solange Knowles wore a statement Giles dress, showing no sign of shying from attention, following her controversial elevator attack on Jay Z at last year’s event.
Katy Perry debuted a new pixie-crop hairstyle in a Graffit-print, low cut Moschino gown, paired with matching long gloves and a Moschino spray paint bottle bag. Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian wore daring and revealing dresses, but it was Beyoncé’s sheer and figure-hugging Givenchy gown that stole the spotlight, as she showed off her toned figure with multicoloured crystals protecting her modesty.
The Met Gala is an annual event chaired by Vogue’s Anna Wintour and intended to raise funds and awareness of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, and with a different theme for celebrities to take on every year, it often means we tend to see more eccentric and jaw-dropping red carpet looks.
