We all know that Cate Blanchett is an A-lister who rarely disappoints when she attends red-carpet events. She has attended many throughout her reign and is no stranger to having iconic fashion designer moments. On this particular red carpet event, Blanchett’s golden fringe gown by Balenciaga was a showstopper at the 2007 Gala.
She perfectly tuned in to the royal theme, “Poiret: King of Fashion,” and accessorized just beautifully, with a golden clutch and turquoise earrings. The actress rarely disappoints when she makes her red-carpet appearances, so it should come as no surprise that she’s landed on the best-dressed list.
Model Gigi Hadid seemed to be channeling a bit of French maid with this odd Tommy Hilfiger look that combines a choppy, nude-colored dress with black fishnet thigh-highs. The whole thing just screamed “mess” and landed her on several worst-dressed lists from the event.
Of course, there were a few people who thought the dress, sans the fishnets, looked appealing. We aren’t sure if it’s the actual dress that caused all the controversy or the color tones, which clearly didn’t work too well with the star’s hair and skin tone. Maybe, just maybe, the same dress with a few shades darker would have been a better fit.
Elle Fanning probably couldn’t handle much of anything herself on the night of the 2019 Meg Gala when she appeared in this ‘70s-styled Miu Miu bell-bottom and wing-sleeved salmon-colored outfit. Each of her nails was done up in something that extended a good inch from her fingertips.
But she did do the theme, "Camp: Notes on Fashion," justice with the overall look. We definitely think that the color of her outfit popped with her gorgeous locks of blonde hair. However, we do feel like she could have easily lost the tacky necklace, which kind of seems like it threw her whole outfit out of the window.
The New York native designer Zac Posen is the magical godfather behind Doutzen Kroes’ Cinderella-like 2010 Gala gown. The dress was designed for the theme: "American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity." Aside from the gorgeous blue gown, sleek curls and red lipstick were a perfect touch to complete this classic look.
There were hardly any naysayers, and comments were, for the most part, raving about the beautiful look. “Now that’s a ball gown,” said one reviewer. Doutzen Kroes is a supermodel of Dutch descent. She began her modeling career in her native country but quickly got noticed and sent to New York, where she was instantly cast by Victoria’s Secret lingerie brand.
It’s impossible to forget the time that Rihanna made a lot of heads turn when she appeared at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2015. She graced the red carpet in a yellow Chinese couture getup by Guo Pei, complete with a long, flowing, imperial yellow cape.
The designer is incredibly popular with stars in China, and, since the pop diva reached for her garments, it has started to rise in popularity in the States as well. We think that she absolutely rocked this look, but later on, the star admitted that she felt a bit over-the-top. But anyway, who said that there’s anything wrong with an over-the-top look when it comes to the Met Gala?
