Cynthia Erivo In Valentino – 2018 Met Gala

While Cynthia Erivo certainly made an impression at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City, it was likely something you didn’t see immediately that was one of the most thematic—and slightly irreverent—elements of her look.

Sure, this custom Valentino cutout gown in royal aubergine velvet was nothing short of provocatively regal.

And, her bejeweled-crown brows and nose ring only pushed the decoratively holy boundaries further.

But, it was her manicure that made the most waves. On her long two-inch talons was a minauturized rendition of the Sistine Chapel’s iconic ‘Creation of Adam’ that featured two black women.

Uma Thurman In Gabriela Hearst – 2018 Met Gala

Uma Thurman was a beauty in white at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday night (May 7) in New York City.

The actress was clad in a custom Gabriela Hearst design. With the puritan white hue and cross necklace, she certainly did dress to the theme, but methinks she could have pushed the envelope more.

Had she topped the look off with a headpiece, it would have elevated the ensemble and made it grand enough for the event.

Giampiero Bodino jewels completed the look.

What do you think?

Sarah Jessica Parker In Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda – 2018 Met Gala

Sarah Jessica Parker is one I always look forward to seeing at the Met Gala, as she so unabashedly dresses to theme. And, she didn’t disappoint for her 2018 showing on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

As per, there was an air of outright thematic extravagance in her sweeping Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda gold filigree, heart-embellished gown.

But, despite the intricate embroidery, the ruffled sleeves, and the long cape-like train, I would say it was the fascinator balancing atop her head that really took the cake and stole the show.

The intricate nativity-scene headdress was a work of art in and of itself, adding to the unapologetically costume-fueled drama of her entrance.

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.
