Met Gala 2018 Theme: “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” which aims to start a conversation about the connection between fashion and religious art within the museum. This takes me back to fashion school when we travelled to museums and were to design a collection inspired by the ancient exhibits for a project – I loved drawing fashion inspiration from the past and the gowns at this year’s annual Met Gala did not disappoint. The Met Gala is the night to push the boundaries and below I have recapped some of my favorite looks of the night…

It was Cardi B’s first Met Gala, and she really hit it out of the park – just like seasoned Met Gala goer Sarah Jessica Parker. These two really nailed the theme and also had the best dates, Andy Cohen and Jermey Scott.

Met Gala Trains

The Met Gala is also all about the stairs – and what better way to show off an exaggerated train. Amal Clooney delights in her floral train that actually is worn over pants as seen from the front view, and Diane Kruger is a show stopper in her embellished blue train. I was also so happy to see Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart in attendance and wearing this gorgeous silver gown with sparkling train. Lastly Kate Bosworth’s look I adored – reminiscent of a bride coming to life from a painting.

Met Gala Kendal and JLO

It was interesting to see Kendall Jenner’s take on the train, as her pant legs trailed behind her. Then as always Jennifer Lopez brought her signature style catered to the theme.

Met Gala Rihanna and Frances

Rihanna never disappoint and is consistently my favorite look at everything she attends – remember last year’s dress? Just wow, and this year she really rocked it out. In addition, Frances McDormand for me nailed it and I truly love everything about her, and her look here. These were my two best dressed!

Met Gala Amanda and Keri

I also loved these golden looks from both Amanda Seyfield and Kerry Washington!

Met Gala Head Dresses

What I also really enjoyed about the Met Gala fashions were the head dressings. First off, Jasmine Sanders is total #braidgoals, and makes me want to grow out my hair again. Kate Upton wore this beautiful jewelled head piece and earrings, and Mindy Kaling like the Queen she is adorned her head with a crown.

Met Gala Halos 1

Halo’s were also a highlighted featured seen on many of the attendants and I love this look seen similarly on Amber Heard and Anne Hathaway.

Met Gala Halos 2

Solange and Blake Lively were my other halo favorites.

Met Gala Italy

Really all the looks from this year’s Met Gala brought me back to when we visited Vatican City in Rome on our Fashion Tour to Italy. I could see last night’s looks reminiscent of those in ancient paintings I saw, and hair adornments like statues. I love seeing the connection between fashion and history, and this year’s theme which Vogue highlighted very well makes me want to dive back into my fashion history text books.

What were some of your favorite looks from this year’s Met Gala?

    I loved the gowns that were showcased at the Met Gala. Stunning and breathtakig comes to mind. I can only hope in the near future that someone decides to sponsor a Met Gala Designer Challenge Contest. That would be awesome. Thanks for sharing Meg. :)

    I love the colours in Blake Lively’s dress and Amanda Seyfield looks like an angel… but what is going on with Jennifer Lopez? Is that a man package by any chance? Sure looks like it!
