Salma Hayek In Altuzarra – 2018 Met Gala

Salma Hayek brought an idyllic form of utopia to the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

Her custom Altuzarra sequin-embroidered dress had a beautiful, painterly quality that depicted the biblical Garden of Eden.

Thus, it offered a different variation on the night’s heavenly theme. And, for that, it was a delightful change of pace to the evening’s fashion lineup.

Frances McDormand In Valentino Couture – 2018 Met Gala

I foresee a number of people mistaking Frances McDormand for Sia at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday evening (May 7) in New York City.

The ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ actress made quite the avant-garde statement at her first Costume Institute Gala in Valentino Spring 2018 Couture.

While the theme might not be as obvious, I’m sure many will not mind as they are swept away in the drama of the ensemble and her posing.

With every move, I’m waiting to get a good glimpse of the layers of chartreuse underneath.

Cardi B In Moschino by Jeremy Scott – 2018 Met Gala

Well, Cardi B certainly didn’t let her burgeoning baby bump get in the way of her 2018 Met Gala moment on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

Always willing to push the boundaries of style, the rapper slayed the theme in a Moschino by Jeremy Scott bejeweled creation that may have even given Rihanna’s Pope-inspired fanfare a run for its money.

Complete with a face-framing headdress, choker and extravagantly caped train, this was a performance piece if there ever was one as she certainly didn’t err on the side of caution or conservative.

It wasn’t Mother Mary, but it was Mother Cardi B.

Amanda Seyfriend In Prada – 2018 Met Gala

Amanda Seyfried was another beauty at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

The ‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ actress was a golden goddess in Prada. There have been countless golden accents this evening, but she embraced the hue from head to toe.

Besides alluding to the theme, the decadent colour worked in harmony with her pale complexion and blonde hair.

She might not have had the most embellished gown or the biggest crown, but she dazzled with a poetic loveliness.

Katherine Langford In Prada – 2018 Met Gala

Also one of the ladies in red tonight (May 7) at the 2018 Met Gala in New York City, Katherine Langford offered a different variation on the hue by combining it with magenta-pink in this Prada caped design.

Of all the attendees, I would have pegged Katherine to opt for a black gown given her affinity for classic, darker aesthetic.

Not so, though, with this colour-saturated entrance that held a certain royal Grecian spirit in addition to the quirky dissonance of hue and outlay of embellishment we’d expect from a Prada look.

Sarah Paulson In Prada – 2018 Met Gala

Sarah Paulson is never one to play it safe on the red carpet so I was very intrigued to see what she would wear to the Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination Met Gala on Monday night (May 7) in New York City.

The ‘American Horror Story’ actress was outfitted in a Prada gown which was brimming with details from all angles. It exuded a sumptuous quality with its richly embroidered and embellished fabric.

The bow detail was most striking from the front, but I’m sure many were itching to see a back view of the style.

Lena Waithe In Carolina Herrera – 2018 Met Gala

Lena Waithe turned heads at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday evening (May 7) in New York City.

The multi-hyphenate was outfitted in a Carolina Herrera look which celebrated equality. The ensemble will no doubt serve as an important talking point this evening with the rainbow flag being reimagined as a bold cape.

The vibrant chevrons of colour against the sharp tailoring of the black and white suit create such an eye-catching statement. It will not be forgotten for its visual impact and message.
