Yara Shahidi In Chanel Couture – 2018 Met Gala

Yara Shahidi thoroughly charmed me from the minute I saw her at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

Without being too literal, she portrayed a certain blissful, angelic quality in this Chanel Spring 2018 Couture ruffled tulle, petticoat frock.

And, it was an absolute delight.

Her floral fascinator and Christian Louboutin heels completed the sweet ode to youthful adoration.

Nicki Minaj In Oscar de la Renta – 2018 Met Gala

When Nicki Minaj wants to make a statement, she knows how to do it. Her look at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City speaks to that.

Seamlessly fusing her sensual style with the gala’s theme, she ensured all eyes were on her with this Oscar de la Renta ensemble and rosary-adorned headpiece. It almost looks like it’s aflame with the gradient tulle and sequined fabric.

As spellbinding as this is, one cannot help but think that her 2012 Grammy Awards look would’ve been perfect for this theme.

Rooney Mara In Givenchy Couture – 2018 Met Gala

Rooney Mara exchanged her affinity for the colours of black and white for a heavenly sky-blue hue at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

You may remember this Givenchy Spring 2018 Couture gown as the one that Fashion Critic wanted to see on Cate Blanchett at Cannes.

It would have been a knockout on Cate, of course. But, I suppose if there was going to be a time and a place for someone else to wear it first, I’m glad it was Rooney here.

The scintillating, caped number perfectly fit within her austere aesthetic while reflecting the theme of the evening.

Tessa Thompson In Thom Browne – 2018 Met Gala

Tessa Thompson made her debut at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

While soft, ethereal silhouettes were a go-to for many, the ‘Westworld’ actress went in the complete opposite direction with a dramatically structured Thom Browne ensemble. The corset and padded hips offer plenty of allure, while the oversized jacket counters the voluptuous femininity of the gown.

She wore the embellished topper on one shoulder, both and draped to the side so one could see the glimpse of the choker and pearly button details snaking down her back. It was a look made for the occasion as everywhere we glanced there was a new intriguing detail.

Did you like the blazer?

Solange Knowles In Iris van Herpen Couture – 2018 Met Gala

Before attending the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City, Solange Knowles polled her fans as to which of five looks she should wear.

Now, I would have never put this avant-garde Iris van Herpen Fall 2012 Couture in the same category as tonight’s ‘Heavenly Bodies’ theme, as the PVC-sculpted look was far more galactic and space-agey to me.

But, even despite the equally edgy over-the-knee boots, Solange molded the look into an image with religious undertones, given the addition on the nun’s habit and face halo.

Did it work for you?

Emilia Clarke In Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda – 2018 Met Gala

Emilia Clarke was one of the beauties offering a painterly homage to the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

Her intricately embroidered Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda medieval-influenced gown featured portraits of cherubs to check the box on the ‘Heavenly Bodies’ component.

I understand why she added the rosiness of the pink blush to her cheeks, but I think she could have done without it and just let the crimson lip and her embellished crown accessorise the look.
