Cara Delevingne In Christian Dior Couture – 2018 Met Gala

After her dramatic statement at the 2017 Met Gala, the anticipation was high to see Cara Delevingne at the Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination Costume Institute Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

Playing with revealing and concealing, she was outfitted in Christian Dior Spring 2018 Couture. The crisscross dress certainly exposed a fair amount of skin while the veil obstructed her face, only revealing a hint of golden forehead and ear.

With so many details considered, I’m surprised by the choice of material in the side panels as the colour doesn’t create a proper illusion like it should.

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.
