2017 Met Gala After-Party

Katy Perry hosted the Met Gala after party at The Boom Boom at The Standard in New York City in the early hours of Tuesday morning (May 2).

Elle Fanning: The young actress donned her second Miu Miu look of the night. I love how the looks starts out minimal in hue and cut before gathering in pace below the waist with an explosion of multi-colour feathers and embellished Christian Louboutin ‘Body Strass’ pumps. I’m imagining this would’ve looked amazing as a gown for the main event.

Kate Bosworth: Since the majority of you disliked Kate’s Tory Burch red carpet look, I won’t be surprised if you wished she’d worn her Emilio Pucci Spring 2017 boldly hued frock to the main event. It certainly would’ve had a greater impact.

Katy Perry: It was Katy Perry’s party and she will dress as ridiculously as she wants too. My only surprise is that she didn’t wear Ulyana Sergeenko Fall 2016 Couture look with the runway helmet.

Models @ The 2017 Met Gala

The models had their moment at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City. Here, a look at how they made the night’s blue carpet their catwalk.

Bella Hadid: We’ve heard of the naked dress, but Bella had the naked jumpsuit of the evening in this sheer mesh Alexander Wang number that left precious little to the imagination.

Gigi Hadid: Her sister may have opted for the naked look, but Gigi just went plain nude in this sweeping Tommy Hilfiger gown—her version of a princess dress—that combined architectural tailoring with romantic femininity. To add an edge, Wolford fishnets did the trick for her leg jut that was likewise accessorised by Christian Louboutin heels.

2017 Met Gala Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

As one of the biggest nights in fashion, the 2017 Met Gala boasted a number of menswear looks that rose to the occasion on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

Lewis Hamilton
: Scoring high style marks, Lewis’s green velvet Dolce & Gabbana Alta Sartoria tuxedo was graced by Buccellati Collection diamonds and metallic-laced slippers. It was effortlessly luxe with an impossibly cool edge.

Alexander Skarsgard
: I was head over heels for this impeccable, white-hot Ermenegildo Zegna Couture tuxedo.

Rami Malek: We saw many ladies in red, and I loved how Rami brought the hue of the evening in this Dior Homme suit, accented by a floral pin and shiny patent dress shoes. Handsomely on theme—in all the best ways.

2017 Met Gala Couples


In addition to Pharrell Williams and Helen Lasichanch, there were a few other couples who attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

Eddie Redmayne & Hannah Bagshawe: While they may not have fully embraced the theme like Pharrell and Helen, Eddie and Hannah still made for a pretty partnership in Prada. The deep jewel-toned hue of her amethyst gown, awash in the label’s signature embellishment, was striking against his midnight-navy suit that was precision-tailored with just the right amount of quirk in its oversized buttons.

Armie Hammer & Elizabeth Chambers Hammer: Coordinating in all black, both Armie and Elizabeth wore Ralph Lauren ensembles. However, no offense to Armie, no one was looking at his monochromatic moment that was nothing if not handsomely sleek. But, with her sheer lace gown, Elizabeth commanded attention—even if we’ve seen this leggy look done countless times over. Its ubiquity has cancelled out any hope of the avant-garde, although a more sculptural, origami-style ’do might have helped inch this ensemble closer to the night’s theme.

Rose Byrne In Ralph Lauren Collection – 2017 Met Gala

Another lady in Rei Kawakubo-red, Rose Byrne attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

The actress whisked into the event in a delightful cherry-hued confection, a custom Ralph Lauren Collection tulle gown with an alluring cutout silhouette.

I love how this look found the right balance of elegant glamour and whimsical experimentation, emboldened by Rose’s nod to avant-garde styling that included the glossy, geometric lines of an Edie Parker ‘Macy’ clutch and sculptural Dauphin jewelry.

Speaking of sculpture, her voluminously teased curls were a work in and of themselves, only adding more thematic drama to the ensemble.

Priyanka Chopra In Ralph Lauren Collection – 2017 Met Gala

Priyanka Chopra also showed the sculptural power of tailoring at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

Combining the best of both worlds—outerwear and evening wear—the ‘Quantico’ actress swept onto the scene in a Ralph Lauren Collection trench coat gown.

An otherworldly, sci-fi influence came by way of her galactic silver earrings and metallic makeup, selected no doubt to up the glam, avant-garde factor—especially against the heavier punk finish of the black platform booties.

But, ultimately, it was the architectural collar and the impossibly long train that sold the look to me—plus Priyanka’s power stance.
