As per the usual Met Gala tradition, some attendees of the event always manage to make headlines for the things they choose to wear, and by this, we’re referring to none other than Madonna. She has a thing for baring it all on the red carpet, which was extra apparent when she showed up to the 2016 Met Gala in a Givenchy Haute Couture dress.
But it was the black tape that she donned all over her body that really made the look. But when you’re Madonna going to the Met Gala – you can pretty much get away with wearing anything or nothing at all.
Supermodel Amber Valletta has attended many Met Gala events throughout her modeling career and often parades some of the most prominent designer names in the industry. She also holds a special place in her heart for the Models as Muse Met Gala since some of her own work was being commemorated, so the entire event really hit home for her.
But at 2004’s Gala, she arrived in this Maggie Norris Couture corset and John Galliano skirt that really nailed the "Dangerous Liaisons" theme. In no other place in the modern world would this look make sense than the Met Gala…
Too Much Fluff
At the 2017 Met Gala, anticipation was pretty high for Rihanna’s look, and given the event dress code, she did not let anyone down. Rhianna arrived in a costume that was beloved by many at the “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between” themed event.
We aren’t too sure about the whole look and don’t know if it’s just that we're really not a fan of the avant-garde or what, but we can’t see what anyone finds appealing about this kind of poofy, bizarre style. However, she did stick to the theme beautifully, showing up in a look done by Rei Kawakubo herself.
Nun Other Than
If there ever was a Latin star that everyone wanted to see at the annual Met Gala then it’s probably got to be this one. "Baby Driver" actress Eiza Gonzalez, of Mexican descent, completely nailed the "Heavenly Bodies" theme at the 2019 event when she arrived in this daring Prabal Gurung ensemble.
It had a little bit of a naughty and nice flair to it, between the black, cutout front, and trailing white cape. She may not look like any nun that will be teaching Sunday school anytime soon, but she definitely wins for the best looks of the evening.
Who Wore it Best?
Donatella Versace is a noteworthy representative of her iconic Italian fashion house’s style of opulence and jubilance. She is easily recognizable thanks to her lush platinum blonde locks and has been slaying in the fashion industry since the late 70s when she took charge of Versace’s advertising campaigns.
Well, you may most likely recognize this dress as worn by another certain singer at another major event, but long before J. Lo donned it; Donatella Versace herself wore the Versace gown to the 1999 Met Gala. The theme that year was "Rock Style," and Tommy Hilfiger sponsored the entire event. Well, the dress looked great both times, so it’s no wonder Lopez chose to wear it the following year to the Grammys.
