Mary J Blige In Atelier Versace – 2018 Met Gala

Mary J Blige showed up at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday evening (May 7) in New York City.

This custom Atelier Versace outfit with L’Dezen by Payal Shah diamond earrings is very much in her wheelhouse and is in keeping with the theme thanks to the colour palette.

It’s sensual, edgy and has a goddess effect. Like a lot of her looks, it also has fantastic dynamism from the curling lines of the embellishment on the bodice and boots.

Juliette Binoche In Balmain – 2018 Met Gala

Juliette Binoche was a vision at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday evening (May 7) in New York City.

The French actress wore custom Balmain which showcased the house’s rich textiles and opulent embellishment while being right on theme.

The beauty of the outfit is that there is no bad angle. It merges a sensual form-fitting shape with the delicate draping on the headpiece and shoulders for a cohesive look. It feels effortless yet also very grand.

Pharrell Williams & Helen Lasichanh In Chanel – 2018 Met Gala

Pharrell Williams and Helen Lasichanh were quite the stylish twosome at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday evening (May 7) in New York City.

Helen Lasichanh: She went to the archives, selecting a Chanel Pre-Fall 2013 ensemble. With its snowy white colour and soft silhouette, it did adhere to the theme. The layered rosaries and her two-tone hair showcased her stylish credentials and tied in her husband’s look.

Pharrell Williams: The producer isn’t one to just wear a traditional suit and this Chanel Pre-Fall 2018 look has the right amount of unique details to set itself apart. The crisp lines also served as a great frame for his accessories.

Claire Danes In Marni – 2018 Met Gala

Claire Danes was one of the bevvy of beauties in attendance at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

The actress was clad in custom Marni. It was certainly a punchy look between the colour-blocking and statement bag. As far as the theme goes, this could have appeared on another red carpet and no one would have been the wiser about the message.

Some might feel that there was a missed opportunity to tie her pregnancy into gala’s theme. It might have been the obvious route, but I would have liked to see her experiment more with it.

That being said, she still looks radiant.

Stella McCartney @ 2018 Met Gala

Paris Jackson, Stella McCartney and Miley Cyrus attended the 2018 Met Gala together on Monday night (May 7) in New York City.

Paris Jackson: Outfitted in custom Stella McCartney, the model glided across the carpet. The layers of rich copper suited her bohemian spirit, but I anticipate many feeling this is more of a princess look rather than something that fits into the night’s theme.

Stella McCartney: Many have been wearing voluminous silhouettes from the designer lately and she showcased the grandest display with her gravity-defying overstuffed sleeves. Even with the ladies linked on her arms, the silhouette is still dramatic. Kwiat Diamonds provided the sparkle.

Miley Cyrus: She took the plunge in a sensual black Stella McCartney gown which was as risqué from the back as it was the front. Many might be wondering how the theme fit in apart from the black colour palette. The singer’s neck was decorated with golden cross necklaces and she donned a belly chain which featured a small cross at the center back.

Ashley Olsen & Mary-Kate Olsen In Vintage Paco Rabanne – 2018 Met Gala

The Olsen twins always present a theme in their own unique manner so I was anticipating their arrival at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday evening (May 7) in New York City.

Mary-Kate Olsen: Opting for an austere approach, she wore vintage Paco Rabanne. The billowing silhouette with belted waist denotes the theme, but it’s the crystal-adorned chest piece that captured the attention. I’m sure many will wish she wore her hair up to fully show it off.

Ashley Olsen: There was definitely a bohemian spirit about her vintage Paco Rabanne ensemble that felt true to her style. The opulent colours and bejewelled headpiece play into it, but also reference the theme. There’s a lot of fabric, but it doesn’t swamp her petite frame.

Diddy In Musika Frere & Cassie In Thom Browne – 2018 Met Gala

Diddy and Cassie looked sharp at the Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination Costume Institute Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

Diddy: The multi-hyphenate embraced the night’s M.O. with a Musika Frere suit. Theme or no theme, the all-white ensemble and longer jacket present a sharp, stylish finish. It also felt very true to his personal style with the blinged-out accessories and his trademark glasses.

Cassie: Clad in Thom Browne, the singer’s look was the perfect foil to the puritan layers of Diddy’s outfit. It showcased the designer’s unique take on tailoring while alluding to the theme. The hair is a bit of letdown. Methinks she would have benefited from a statement headpiece to dramatize the ensemble.
