I have never been one for award shows. I usually watch about 10 minutes and then fall asleep (with the exception of Leo's big win this year!).
However, the red carpet is something else entirely. The sparkles, the embroidery, the silhouettes, everything makes it so interesting to watch!
The theme for this year's Met Gala was Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.
While there are a number of aspects that were to be expected, like silver fabrics and excessive amounts metallic accessories, the guests of this even found so many creative and unique ways to personalize their look. Here are my favourite looks from the gala Xx.
I love the mix of all-over metallics and mesh inserts on this Balmain dress.
The combination of the sleek white Prada gown with the metallic corset-harness makes this dress so modern yet still extraordinarily feminine.
There are so many things happening in this Calvin Klein ensemble. The pantsuit, the off-the-shoulder neckline, the monochrome, and the pyjama set-esque waist detailing. Though there is so much, everything works together so well.
Gigi Hadid & Zayn Malik
I love the neck detail and semi-sheer skirt on Gigi's Tommy Hilfiger gown. And the armoured sleeves on Zayn's Versace suit is a clever way to embrace the technology aspect of the event's theme.
I really love it when celebrities wear high street brands on the red carpet. This stunning dress is by Topshop. The single sleeve and cutout at the neck add more dimension, while the classic shape keeps it feminine and sexy.
This Calvin Klein dress is not something I would have expected for a technology theme. This green sequinned dress stood out in the crowd of metallic silvers. And the sheer skirt is gorgeous!
This metallic Burberry gown is so wonderfully feminine. The delicate flowers on the skirt contrast the disco ball feel of the rest of the dress so well.
The oversized rivets and the extra late choker add so much more personality to this simple, chic Michael Kors sheath dress.
This Louis Vuitton dress is gorgeous! The metallic snake print is a funky twist for a red carpet look, the knee-length keeps it fun, and the ruffles and cutouts maintain some femininity. And those shoes!
