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.
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.
A Bright Beret
Back in 2003, the Met Gala wasn't as prominent as it is today, which is the only explanation as to why Dunst showed up in this look. We do get that berets were trendy back in the early noughties, but the bright hat just doesn't go with Kirsten's black dress at all.
Especially since we know that it’s an actual Marc Jacobs dress after all. Don’t think that he would be too impressed with this pairing if he saw it now. Luckily for Dunst, she's had many years to make up for this look, and most people have probably forgotten it by now.
"The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring," star Liv Tyler showed up to the 2011 Met Gala in a white and yellow Givenchy gown. Don't get us wrong, we do think the dress is gorgeous, but it does feel like it could have worked for any red carpet.
It just doesn't have that "WOW" factor we were looking for. We have to admit, though, that it was a lot better than the look she rocked at the 1999 Met Gala in which she wore a plain black skirt and a white off-one-shoulder top that read “ROCK ROYALTY.”
