Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Ralph Lauren Collection – 2018 Met Gala

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked like a goddess at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday night (May 7) at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. She graced the carpet alongside Katharine McPhee, Diane Kruger and Hailee Steinfeld.

There is definitely ethereal drama in this custom Ralph Lauren Collection gown, but there is also a sense of restraint which makes it all the more striking. It’s evident in the tonal embellishment, the halo headpiece and her Ana Khouri earrings.

When many try to layer on everything save the kitchen sink, there is a sense of ease and grace from the ensemble which helps capture the theme.

Rita Ora In Prada – 2018 Met Gala

Rita Ora shut down the red carpet with her entrance at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City—not the least because of her magnificently long chiffon train.

While we’ve seen a lot of light and golden looks thus far, the songstress tapped into a darker side of heavenly fashion with this Prada gown.

Lit by bright floral appliques throughout, the design was a standout, especially when complemented by the drama of the glittery gloves, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, neon bag, and yes, the black-rose-covered headpiece—worn in homage to the theme, naturally.

Some may be getting Beyonce vibes from the headdress that reminded me of the one we saw on Queen Bey at the 2017 Grammy Awards.

But, this look was all Rita, and she owned the dark-angel quality.

Katharine McPhee In Georges Chakra Couture – 2018 Met Gala

Katharine McPhee was one of the lovely ladies in attendance at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday night (May 7) in New York City, joining Hailee Steinfeld, Gabrielle Union and Kerry Washington.

The singer-actress was another one who embraced blue and gold, but she put her own twist on things with this pale blue Georges Chakra Spring 2017 Couture gown crafted out of a textured diaphanous fabric. It adds allure to the sweeping style and contrasts the bold folds.

There are details aplenty with the layered accessories, but everything has been chosen carefully so nothing overpowers. It all presents an opulent, cohesive finish.

Diane Kruger In Prabal Gurung – 2018 Met Gala

Diane Kruger had me absolutely enchanted the minute she alighted the carpet at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

Her satiny-blue Prabal Gurung confection was indeed heavenly, to say the least.

The magic of the design was that it boasted a certain purity of sweet innocence in the gold filigree, sculpted mini with the elaboration of form in the pouf sleeves and long train.

I love the addition of the netted hair piece to drive home the fairytale-meets-angelic form.

Hailee Steinfeld In Atelier Prabal Gurung – 2018 Met Gala

Proving that headpieces are one of the key accessories of the night, Hailee Steinfeld stepped out at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City alongside Kerry Washington, Eiza Gonzalez and Livia Firth.

Her Atelier Prabal Gurung gown is a play of dichotomies with the angelic white hue and ruffled back being contrasted by the up-to-there-slit.

The TASAKI Atelier tiara and pearls and multiple necklace strands helped the outfit go from being a pretty red carpet dress to being something special for the grand occasion.

Deepika Padukone In Atelier Prabal Gurung – 2018 Met Gala

Deepika Padukone was also in attendance at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

This Atelier Prabal Gurung gown relied on the siren song of the powerful shade of crimson for dramatic impact.

With the sculptural shoulder detail and artful draping, it was a beautiful piece to behold—and I love the addition of the Tasaki Atelier serpentine earrings.

But, as was the case with Gabrielle Union’s Prabal Gurung dress, I could have easily pictured this look at another non-thematic event like Cannes, for instance.
