Mindy Kaling In Vassilis Zoulias – 2018 Met Gala

Mindy Kaling was back on the red carpet at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

The ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ actress looked positively regal in her Vassilis Zoulias ensemble. There isn’t need for heavy surface embellishment because the refined elegance of the style has such impact between its pleated front and draped back.

Her headpiece was one of the most ornate of the evening. With the sophisticated dress, I foresee some mistaking it for a princess look rather than the ‘Heavenly Bodies’ theme, but the entire look has been crafted in reference to it.

Did you like the gloves?

Mackenzie Davis In Chloe – 2018 Met Gala

Mackenzie Davis was a beauty in rich red at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday evening (May 7) in New York City.

The ‘Tully’ actress wore a bespoke Chloe gown which paid tribute to the theme with its white collar and floor skimming silhouette. It brought to mind priest robes but there’s more to it than that. The look is a study of contrasts with the sheer skirt and thigh-high boots juxtaposing the modest top.

The deep burgundy colour references the theme and the bohemian nature of the designer.

Madonna In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture – 2018 Met Gala

You could easily say that the ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ theme of the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City was made for Madonna.

The ‘Like a Virgin’ singer was born for this red carpet, after all. And, rock the theme Madge did.

But, rather than go for a white look of purity, she went in the opposite direction with a Jean Paul Gaultier Couture extravaganza that her stylist Eyob Yohannes likened to an ‘Immaculate Goth Queen.’

The black ball gown featured a sheer cross cutout that you would be forgiven for missing initially, as her mesh black veil and elaborate cross-bedecked crown commanded so much attention up front.

She carried a giant black rose to finish the dark, theatrical spectacle that won’t be soon forgotten.

Tiffany Haddish In Brandon Maxwell – 2018 Met Gala

Tiffany Haddish was another star seeing things in black and white at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

This custom Brandon Maxwell design featured a tailored white shirt and train paired against glittery black trousers.

It was an interesting way to interpret the theme yet I was getting more of a reverse tuxedo sensibility than a monastic-inspired spirit. What about you?

Letitia Wright In Coach – 2018 Met Gala

The boho patchwork motif that has been characteristic of recent Coach looks cropped up on Letitia Wright at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

I wouldn’t have expected to see this particular mixed bag of patterns on a night such as this.

But, what made this dropped-waist peasant dress look more suited to the evening was the focus on the gold colourways.

I like how she let her braids be the crowning glory of the look rather than relying on a headdress.
