Chadwick Boseman In Versace – 2018 Met Gala

Normally, we save the menfolk for their own roundup, but as per usual, Chadwick Boseman was back at it with another superlative look at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City; one that was worthy of its own dedicated post.

No better choice than Versace on an evening such as this, as Donatella Versace was a co-host and the label’s cross motif was made for the religiously focused theme.

I always love a cape, so I’ve been going crazy over the caped looks tonight. But, it’s a rare occasion that we see one worn in menswear—and worn so magnificently.

Leave it to Chadwick.

Bronzed Christian Louboutin Homme shoes and rows of Bulgari rings completed his resplendent, kingly look.

Scarlett Johansson In Marchesa – 2018 Met Gala

Like Nicki Minaj, Scarlett Johansson was also clad in a red ombré gown at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday evening (May 7) in New York City.

The ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ actress opted for a different take with layers of burgundy tulle melding into blush pink in her Marchesa gown.

She often plays into an alluring retro mood or a sensual one, so it was a pleasant change of pace to see her embrace a softer, whimsical mood with this style accented with floral appliqués. Of course, it wasn’t completely without a flirty undercurrent thanks to the gossamer fabric of the bodice.

Yara Shahidi In Chanel Couture – 2018 Met Gala

Yara Shahidi thoroughly charmed me from the minute I saw her at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

Without being too literal, she portrayed a certain blissful, angelic quality in this Chanel Spring 2018 Couture ruffled tulle, petticoat frock.

And, it was an absolute delight.

Her floral fascinator and Christian Louboutin heels completed the sweet ode to youthful adoration.

Nicki Minaj In Oscar de la Renta – 2018 Met Gala

When Nicki Minaj wants to make a statement, she knows how to do it. Her look at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City speaks to that.

Seamlessly fusing her sensual style with the gala’s theme, she ensured all eyes were on her with this Oscar de la Renta ensemble and rosary-adorned headpiece. It almost looks like it’s aflame with the gradient tulle and sequined fabric.

As spellbinding as this is, one cannot help but think that her 2012 Grammy Awards look would’ve been perfect for this theme.

Rooney Mara In Givenchy Couture – 2018 Met Gala

Rooney Mara exchanged her affinity for the colours of black and white for a heavenly sky-blue hue at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

You may remember this Givenchy Spring 2018 Couture gown as the one that Fashion Critic wanted to see on Cate Blanchett at Cannes.

It would have been a knockout on Cate, of course. But, I suppose if there was going to be a time and a place for someone else to wear it first, I’m glad it was Rooney here.

The scintillating, caped number perfectly fit within her austere aesthetic while reflecting the theme of the evening.

Tessa Thompson In Thom Browne – 2018 Met Gala

Tessa Thompson made her debut at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

While soft, ethereal silhouettes were a go-to for many, the ‘Westworld’ actress went in the complete opposite direction with a dramatically structured Thom Browne ensemble. The corset and padded hips offer plenty of allure, while the oversized jacket counters the voluptuous femininity of the gown.

She wore the embellished topper on one shoulder, both and draped to the side so one could see the glimpse of the choker and pearly button details snaking down her back. It was a look made for the occasion as everywhere we glanced there was a new intriguing detail.

Solange Knowles In Iris van Herpen Couture – 2018 Met Gala

Before attending the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City, Solange Knowles polled her fans as to which of five looks she should wear.

Now, I would have never put this avant-garde Iris van Herpen Fall 2012 Couture in the same category as tonight’s ‘Heavenly Bodies’ theme, as the PVC-sculpted look was far more galactic and space-agey to me.

But, even despite the equally edgy over-the-knee boots, Solange molded the look into an image with religious undertones, given the addition on the nun’s habit and face halo.

Did it work for you?
