Were These The Best Dressed Celebrities At The Met Gala?

Dubbed the ‘Oscars of the East Coast,’ the Met Gala is annually held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and is arguably fashion’s largest event off the runway. Celebrities from all walks – from music to movies to the Kardashians – gather for a red carpeted night behind closed doors (what actually goes on during the Met Gala is not publicized), all in the name of fashion.

This year, the Met Gala honored the avant-garde label Comme des Garçons and its founder, Rei Kawakubo, casting both as its notorious theme. Some, however, followed the theme while others chose to go with their own interpretation. Regardless, this year’s Met Gala produced some memorable looks, and as such, we’ve rounded up our favorites below.

Zoe Kravitz

In her recent cut, a platinum blonde pixie, Zoe Kravitz graced the Gala’s front steps in a blue and pink satin Oscar de la Renta gown. Off the shoulder – complete with real (yes, real) black roses – the dress looked beautiful on Kravitz. Ultimately, we think you can’t go wrong with a black and pink palette, a classic combination, so it’s no small wonder that Kravitz looked divine for the night.

Zendaya

Zendaya is, ultimately, unable to stop serving looks. Whoever her stylists are, she looked gorgeous in her Dolce & Gabbana gown, covered in parrots and flowing long and pretty in warm hues and blue. Yes, Zendaya did disregard the night’s theme, but honestly, we couldn’t care less. She looked stunning.

Nicki Minaj

Wearing H&M (and Rei Kawakubo’s face), Nicki Minaj expertly wore a high-low dress with obvious odes to the avant-garde. Minaj really loves her bodycon dresses, so we thought it was nice to see her dressed up in something a little bit different. Ultimately, we think her Met Gala gown is one of her best looks so far – and kudos to Minaj for going with the spirit of the theme.

Rihanna

Who could forget Rihanna’s 2015 Met Gala dress? She was stunning, so much so that she solidified herself as Met Gala royalty. This year, Rihanna once again, delivered, donning a Comme des Garçons dress with an up-do. We were really wanting to see a celebrity go all out for this year’s theme and Rihanna did that, pulling it off beautifully. She arrived fashionably late too, and for the rest of the night, she continued to look like a flower just bloomed.

Lily Aldridge

Arriving in an outfit that required a party bus, Lily Aldridge stuck to the spirit of Rei Kawakubo, donning tulle (a frequently-used material for Commes Des Garçons) and quite a long cape. In fact, her cape was so long it required three people to properly carry it out of the bus. Either way, Aldridge’s white dress especially stood out for its asymmetrical shape and pops of color – a bright-red bottom and a purple face mask – ultimately making for a very experimental and bold ensemble.

Jaden Smith

Dressed in jet black from head to toe, Jaden Smith arrived in heels and Luis Vuitton, holding – what else? – his own hair. Showing himself as a kind of style rebel, Jaden Smith followed his own prerogative, bending the rules and pushing whatever boundaries he could. And much like the night’s theme, Smith came to make a statement. He made an exciting, head-turning guest on the Met Gala’s front steps, and we’re really glad he showed up and delivered.

Solange

Solange normally goes with a more experimental gown on the red carpet, so she fit right alongside the Met Gala’s theme for the night. For the event, she wore minimal makeup and a black parka dress, which had some Internet goers comparing it to a sleeping bag. However, we still think Solange served up a look for the night, especially since Commes Des Garçons is known for playing with unlikely clothing materials. Ultimately, we loved seeing her do her thing and she looked absolutely fabulous while doing so.
