In 2017, Priyanka Chopra made her Met Gala debut. The Hollywood and Bollywood icon graced the carpets with a tailored Ralph Lauren trench coat dress that made an extended train that most certainly got the star a lot of gasps of admiration. She was bejeweled in a pair of dramatic earrings and a weighty ring.
The 2000 Miss World pageant winner wore minimal yet effective makeup with black-heeled boots. The star’s ensemble was a high state of style and grace, and her entrance alongside Nick Jonas definitely caused a big stir (as they had just started dating back then), but her stunning outfit was the actual thing that got everyone talking!
Glammed in Gucci
Serena Williams described her 2021 Met Gala as "Superhero-inspired." One does have to admit that she does look sort of like an out-worldly creature with her feather-laden cape, which blended from white to pink and red hues and ended up with black at the bottom. Underneath the fluffy cape, she wore a silver bodysuit from Gucci that was adorned with red stars.
The tennis icon's hair and makeup were pretty toned down compared to the rest of her look, which gave way for her outfit to shine, and she accessorized with a silver handbag that matched her platform heels. She absolutely rocked the "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion" theme out of the park!
Can We Maybe Not See Your Toosh?
The award for the most risque Met Gala outfit has got to go to Zoe Kravitz when she attended the 2021 annual event. The stunning actress wore a Yves Saint Laurent halter dress made up entirely of rhinestones, and with a lot of bare skin in between, there wasn't much left to the imagination.
Underneath the dress, she wore a matching rhinestone thong, which is most likely the cause for a lot of the mixed reviews she got for this outfit. We get that you want to be a shining star on the red carpet, but not everybody is keen on seeing your backside! She looks gorgeous, but we feel like the thong desperately went a little bit too far!
Rocking a Floral Headpiece from a Different Place
"The Girl on the Train" actress Haley Bennet is known for wearing peculiar outfits to red-carpet events, and we love that for her! At the 2017 Met Gala, the star rocked a theatrical floral headpiece, which pretty much consisted of an entire bouquet of faux flowers. The spectacular headpiece matched her lacey floral dress.
The star embraced the avant-garde theme beautifully in her Dolce and Gabbana piece. The only thing that may have let her look down a bit was perhaps her granny curls, which gave the 29-year-old at the time a few extra years. Besides that aspect, we pretty much think that every other aspect of her look, including her makeup, was top-notch!
Who Brought Their Violin to The Met?
The director and star of "Don't Worry Darling" took a vintage approach to the Met Gala in 2023. Olivia Wilde wore a classical Chloé dress designed by Lagerfeld. The evening paid tribute to the iconic Karl Lagerfeld, and this little number definitely paid its dues to the theme, but we can't help but wonder if the original black, shorter version of the dress would have done more justice to the theme.
For some reason, this one seems a bit out of place at this event. The outfit was from a 1983 spring collection, which was entirely inspired by the shape of a violin. As one can see, the instrument is shaped in gold over the chest area. That's fine, but we aren't sure what relevance the violin holds at this occasion.
