Well, you can’t say that actor Chadwick Boseman didn’t adhere to the whole “Catholic Imagination” aspect of that year’s theme when he arrived at the 2018 Gala dressed like, well, like this. The custom white Versace tux and a cape are covered in symbolism of gold crosses and definitely stand out against the crowd.
The Met Gala has been called the “Oscars of Fashion,” so one must really dress for the occasion, we suppose. We also have to mention that he, along with other daring stars like Jared Leto, did manage to land themselves on best-dressed lists for the event that year.
When Solange Knowles arrived at the 2015 Met Gala, she stopped many people in their tracks – but many were probably just trying to figure out what exactly it was they were looking at her wearing. The Giles dress has an odd shape that makes her look like some kind of vehicle you’d see on "Star Trek" or "The Orville."
It also seems to be an optical illusion if one has a close look at the print of the dress, so it was a very daring move to wear this outfit. The star clearly likes to be the odd one out as she also donned a strange outfit at the same event in 2017. But hey, if ever there were a time to dress like a flying saucer, it’d be at the Met Gala, right?
Give us a Twirl
Zendaya clearly nailed her look for the 2015 Gala, which had the theme of "China: Through the Looking Glass." She looked gorgeous in an interesting and embellished Fausto Puglisi dress, which featured sun designs against the long trailing skirt, along with a simple pair of black stilettos. Quite simple yet elegant.
Her long hair, topped with a matching crown-like headband was the icing on the cake, and of course, her bracelet matched the whole look to perfection. Jessica Alba could take a few notes from Zendaya about how to pick an outfit to walk the stairs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art!
2014 has been rated as one of the ‘worst-dressed’ Met Gala events on more than one occasion, so while it may have been rough for several celebrities in terrible outfits, but Blake Lively was undoubtedly not one of them. Her custom, form-fitting Gucci gown looks gorgeous, from the color and details to the way it drapes and flows. She chose to accentuate the look with classic old Hollywood pin curls.
Her husband, Ryan Reynolds, has described her getting ready for the Galas as “an athletic event.” “I’m not even sure how shoes got in the freezer; there’s Kung Fu involved, it’s really intense,” he jokingly told "Glamour" magazine. Whatever she’s doing, it's working!
The “Big Little Lies” actress Shailene Woodley’s 2018 Gala getup seems as though it’d be really tough to walk – and sit down – in. And it’s also certain that not everyone can pull off this sort of look, but Woodley was feeling extra daring on this special occasion.
It’s giving a lot of shining armor and knight vibes. But we guess she must’ve thought the Ralph Lauren design worked well with the "Heavenly Bodies" theme. In fact, two other celebrities showed up in outfits that looked very similar and nodded to Joan of Arc. Unfortunately, hers earned her a spot on several worst-dressed lists for that year’s event.
