Kylie Jenner, dubbed “Forbes’s” youngest self-made billionaire in 2019 (or it later came out that she made it out to be that way under false pretenses), was dressed to the nines in 2019’s Met Gala. In a long gown designed by Alexander Wang and bejeweled sunnies, she looks like she’s ready to take on the world, though, let’s admit it, she already kind of has.
This look is not only tame compared to what we’re used to seeing at the Metropolitan Museum Gala, but it’s also tame for Jenner herself, who has been seen with almost every shade of hair color, but it still works.
This gorgeous garment was designed by "Project Runway" season four winner Christian Siriano. The sparkly bejeweled orange tuxedo and the magnificent cape both took two months to make. "American Horror Story" and "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy reported the garment celebrated child prodigy Liberace.
The star told People, “But it’s rooted in a real costume that Liberace donned called the Neptune.” He also added that he loved the “camp” theme because it’s a great, joyful, tender, and ironic word to play around with. The outfit weighs over 100 lbs, and apparently, it took a hefty five people to support the procedure of getting the thing on, but no pain, no gain, right? This look is a winner!
As one of the world's highest-paid actresses, Scarlett didn't have to save money on a Met Gala dress. In 2018, she decided to spoil herself with a Marchesa ombré gown. It was rather controversial that she wore this fashion house’s dress as it recently went from an A-list favorite to a name that Hollywood stars are too afraid to be associated with, given the aftermath of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
Georgina Chapman is one of the co-founders of the fashion brand, and she is also the ex-wife of the aforementioned Weinstein. Either way, that didn’t seem to faze the star at all. This off-shoulder look isn't our favorite, but we trust Johansson's judgment. As one of Hollywood's leading ladies, she knows what she's doing!
Kristen Stewart ascended to fame when she portrayed Bella Swan in the "Twilight Saga" movies. Her 2019 Gala look was all about the hair and make-up. Her Chanel outfit is monochromatic, letting her hair orange hair and eyebrows shine. Kristen mentioned she was inspired by David Bowie, and it shows.
We love how edgy this look is. And you can’t deny that only Stewart (with the help of the best glam squad in the industry) was able to pull this Bowie-esque “camp” look off so brilliantly. The neurotic hair was the work of colorist Danila Moon and stylist Adir Abergel and they couldn’t have done a more stellar job than this.
Do you guys remember back when the Olsen Twins used to be everywhere? Nowadays, the two are lying low and almost completely out of the spotlight. That doesn’t mean that they are forgotten, though. Just before the two launched their very own fashion line, “The Row,” in 2006, the two made their first appearance at the Met Gala in 2005.
The Olsens didn't get the memo about the night's theme. While the Gala was celebrating Chanel, Ashley wore Oscar de la Renta while Mary-Kate donned a vintage piece. Despite these looks being so bluntly of the early noughties, we still enjoy them.
