Zendaya smashed 2019’s theme. What’s campier than an over-the-top Disney-inspired princess gown? Nothing! The dress was designed by legendary Tommy Hilfiger. The actress’s stylist, Roach, accompanied her on the red carpet dressed as the fairy godmother. She also had a bag shaped like Cinderella’s pumpkin carriage, and if that’s not enough, her gown lit up on the red carpet.
The star has a great track record of religiously sticking to the event’s theme, and This enchanting look gets her an automatic ten out of ten. At the same event the year before, the star rocked up in a Joan of Arc-influenced Versace custom-made gown, which also bang on hit the theme of the party of bang on the head.
Would You Like Fries With That?
The Met has become so huge in recent years that celebs sport different looks in the main event and in the after-party. If you thought the after-party outfits would be a little bit more chill, think again.
For instance, Katy Perry went the extra mile and she clearly takes parties very seriously, so in 2019 she wore a full-on hamburger costume for the one that came after the main event. She obviously took the “Camp” theme of the party to the next level with this head-turning outfit. Perry always slays it when it comes to the Gala, and we gotta admit we love this quirky look.
The Wrong Party
As we already mentioned, after-parties got big in recent years. Kim Kardashian wasn't about to let anyone outshine her. While this look can't be ignored, we are not sure it's a good thing. Maybe she thought it was Halloween? In a skintight blue dress and a shiny wig, Kim is obviously giving a nod to Cher.
While she did go all out, we are not fans of the look. On the red carpet, before the 2019 Met Gala afterparty, the star donned a skintight tan frock with crystal ornaments dripping down to resemble water. That look was great, so we’re not too sure why she went and changed into this after that stunning little number.
A Train to Remember
A train will always steal the show. Endless trains have been a recurring theme in this prestigious ball and for a good reason. They have an impact that can't be denied. Beyond that, they most certainly have the ability to make stars shine brighter as they acquire so much space around them, so it’s a given that any celeb with a long trail is bound to stand out in the crowds of people.
And For Cardi B, there's no such thing as overdoing it. A sparkly cap? Sure. Feathers Galore? No problem. A 10 feet train? Bring it on! This $250,000 dress was worth every penny.
In 2013, model Karlie Kloss wore a Louis Vuitton dress, but her Monique Pean necklace almost stole the show. Her bright pink lips look fabulous, though we are not sold on the hair and overall styling. While we love all of the elements of her outfit, we are not sure they all fit together to make a cohesive look.
Fortunately, the fashion model has had a lot of other opportunities at other Met Gala events to out do this look. In 2023 the star accessorized her a stunning black velvet dress with the sweetest baby bump that she debuted at the event.
