19 Memorable Looks from the 2019 Met Gala
Whilst last year’s Met Gala was cancelled due to you-know-what, we’re taking a look back the most memorable looks from the 2019 carpet ahead of this year’s event!
Cardi B in Thom Browne
Cardi B was redder than a traditional red carpet in her feathered Thom Browne number at the 2019 Met Gala. Her dress was made up of 30,000 feathers which took 2,000 hours and a total of 35 people to make! It also featured $250,000 (44 carats) worth of Red Rubies!
Katy Perry in Moschino
Katy Perry ‘lit up’ the carpet as a human chandelier in a custom creation by Jeremy Scott for Moschino to the 2019 Met Gala. When speaking of the look, Jeremy Scott told Vogue, “Who has ever been to a ball that did not have a chandelier?!,”. He added that “The idea of elegance itself is quite camp and I wanted to play with that concept, poke a lil fun at it with a loving nudge.”
Kendall and Kylie Jenner in Atelier Versace
Kendall and Kylie’s custom Versace dresses might’ve turned the pair into an internet meme after the 2019 Met Gala, but they showed up for theme and nailed it at that!
Lady Gaga in Brandon Maxwell
Lady Gaga is never one to disappoint when it comes to fashion, so when she showed up in look one out of four during the 2019 Met Gala, her Brandon Maxwell gown (featuring a 25-foot long train) most definitely made a memorable entrance!
Jared Leto in Gucci
Whilst Jared Leto wore a Gucci gown the 2019 Met Gala, it wasn’t so much his outfit that got people talking… instead it was his now infamous accessory… of his own head!
Billy Porter in The Blonds
Speaking of making an entrance… Billy Porter got carried onto the carpet by six shirtless men! The Pose star came as an Egyptian “Sun God” in a creation by The Blonds to the 2019 Met Gala!
Ezra Miller in Burberry
Ezra Miller arrived in an eye-popping look to the 2019 Met Gala. Wearing a custom Burberry suit, Miller’s make-up (by Mimi Choi) was more of a show stopper!
Zendaya in Tommy Hilfiger
Zendaya was another star to light up the carpet at the 2019 Met Gala. The actress dressed as Cinderella in a magical Tommy Hilfiger gown whilst her stylist Law Roach, went as her fairy Godmother who carried a wand to light up her gown as they made their entrance!
Michael Urie in Cristiano Siriano
Michael Urie’s androgyny-inspired ensemble by Cristian Siriano paired so perfectly with the Camp theme, it speaks for itself!
Harry Styles in Gucci
This one’s more a Harry Styles appreciation post but the co-host of the night, donned a Gucci outfit and even pierced his ears specifically so he could wear the pearl earrings on the night!
Celine Dion in Oscar de la Renta
Celine Dion put the “show” in ‘showgirl’ in a dress by Oscar de la Renta, topped by a 22-pound headpiece!
Kim Kardashian-West in Mugler
Kim Kardashian-West wore a waist-cinching creation by Thierry Mugler to the 2019 Met Gala. The look marked the first fashion piece Thierry Mugler designed for House of Mugler in 20 years! Her dress was made to look like she was “stepping out of the ocean” and took eight months to create!
Serena Williams in Atelier Versace
Serena Williams brightened up the carpet in a Yellow Atelier Versace dress to the 2019 Met Gala. The tennis star paired her gown with Nike x Off-White Air Force One sneakers and it actually pulled-off!
Lupita Nyong’o in Atelier Versace
Lupita Nyong’o’s colourful dress by Versace just screamed camp at the 2019 Met Gala. That’s it.
Priyanka Chopra-Jonas and Nick Jonas in Dior
The Met Gala might be the place where Priyanka and Nick’s love story began but they don’t come to play! The couple sparkled in matching Silver Christian Loubotin shoes with their respective outfits by Dior.
Tracee Ellis Ross in Moschino
Tracee Ellis Ross was a literal piece of art when she arrived in Moschino. But the meaning behind the picture frame was more that just the art of the gala itself… her stylist Karla Welch said “It’s how we make ourselves art. For me, camp is a vessel for art, and we took that into consideration. Also, a woman is a piece of art, so there’s something there as well.”.
Dua Lipa in Atelier Versace
Dua Lipa didn’t disappoint for her first walk down the Met Gala carpet! The songstress made her debut in an Atelier Versace gown with matching printed boots
Kacey Musgraves in Moschino
Kasey Musgraves went as an actual Moschino barbie doll to the 2019 Met Gala… she even pulled up in a pink covertible before hitting the pink carpet!
Jordan Roth in Iris van Herpen
Jordan Roth, the president of Jujamcyn Theaters, wore a theatrical number to the 2019 Met Gala, in a cape created by none other than Iris van Herpen! It was a fitting piece for the Broadway mogul, as the curtains opened and closed as the cape was was spread!
