Hello guys! Long time no see huh? But finally after months and months I decided to come back and blog like I used to when I first started. At least, I’ll try. So here I am on IAB with a new category: Fashion/Events. It’s from this perspective that I’m writing about the MET GALA ’16.
With a different theme every year and hosted by VOGUE in New York City, this event is like the “Oscars of Fashion” This year’s MET theme was:
“Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.”
The exhibition was focused on the dichotomy between handmade haute couture and machine-made fashion. Great idea but what about the guests? Did they really understood the theme? Here’s what we saw at the MET this year and my opinion on some outfits.
As we all know, Kim & Kanye West have won the best dressed couple award and I think they totally deserved it. Kim’s Balmain dress was beautiful and respected the theme perfectly. Even tho I’m not a big fan of this trend, I have to admit that the fact that she bleached her eyebrows gave her a more ‘future’ look and was a good idea. Let’s talk about Kanye now. He was clearly different from the others but yet cute and his contact lenses added more to his look.
Even tho the West couple was really handsome, the Hadid sisters, in my opinion steal the show for themselves with their (perfect) boyfriend. Bella Hadid looked literally bomb in her black Givenchy dress just like Gigi in her elegant Tommy Hilfiger outfit. But let’s not forget about Zayn Malik who decided to really stick to the ‘technology’ theme and wear metal plates, by Versace, over his classic tuxedo. Personally I loved this idea!
Kate Hudson looked stunning as she graced the red carpet for the 2016 MET Gala in her Atelier Versace dress. And how perfect looks Amber Heard? When she arrived at the Gala, she was glowing in her rose gold Ralph Lauren dress.
I like to keep the best for last. So here it is. I think we CANNOT talk about the 2016 MET Gala without mentioning Claire Danes’ breathtaking dress. When walking the red carpet, the dress looked like a typical princess dress, but when she entered the Gala where it was a whole lot darker, her LED dress lit up and shimmered. She was pure perfection. That’s my favorite dress ever! Congrats to Zac Posen, this is truly beautiful.
To finish this article I would say that my little deception was Blake Lively. Her dress was nice but I think she didn’t respect the theme. She was cute but kinda basic: it was a huge deja vu in my opinion. Anyway, I hope you liked my ‘come back’ post. What was your favorite outfit this year?
