The first Monday in May has officially passed, and we are still swooning over the star-studded, next level fashion we witnessed (from afar) last night at the annual MET Gala. This year’s Gala was hosted by co-chairs, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Regina King, and Lin-Manuel Miranda. The fashion was absolutely next level and there were tons of fabulous looks that will be talked about for years to come. The official theme this year was “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” which highlighted an emphasis on American fashion.
In usual Kardashian fashion, one of the most talked about looks of the evening was Kim Kardashian’s take on the theme. The mogul graced the famous stairs in a vintage Jean Louis gown that was famously worn by the late Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn Monroe wore this tight fitted, crystal-adorned gown while singing “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy. Kim took this one straight out of the museum archives and the viewers were starstruck. She even rocked bleached blonde hair and a faux fur coat draped off her shoulders.
Our queen, Blake Lively was the ultimate hostess and of course, was dressed perfectly in line with the MET Gala’s theme. The fashion icon graced the stairs in an art deco inspired gown with a color scheme of gold, burgundy and light blue tones. The shimmering details and iridescent adornments were a nod to New York City. Her dress quickly transformed and a huge overskirt was draped down exposing more aqua blue details and watercolor-like color patterns, acting as a tribute to the Statue of Liberty.
Simone Ashley, best known currently for her leading role in Netflix’s show, Bridgerton, stepped out on the scene in a classic black number with a modern feel. Her two piece number featured a nude colored crop with black beadwork. It was paired with a sleek, high waisted skirt that paired with a draping cape-like detailing. The sleeves, overskirt and large ruffles added so much flare to this look! She completed the overall ensemble with slicked hair, a beaded choker necklace and simple earrings.
