Significant Trends At The Met Gala 2018
The Met Gala is also called the Met ball, it is an annual fundraising gala for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York. Besides all of that talk, the met gala is a time where all celebrities come out looking extravagant. The Met Gala is a event of the year that I always anticipate, although I didn’t get to watch this year’s met gala, I was able to watch a few clips on You Tube. Every year Met Gala has a new theme and this year’s theme was heavenly bodies: fashion and catholic imagination. I don’t know if it is just me but celebrities looks tends to overshadow the whole essence of the Met Gala, before I knew it was a fundraising event I thought it was just an event celebrities go to like the Oscars or Grammys. The Met Gala is one of the most exclusive social events and biggest fundraising event.
# Head Piece
One of the most significantly common things at the met gala was the head piece. It almost seemed like everyone was wearing an head piece and we loved the trend. There were so many different types of head piece from crown-like ones; from the likes of Sza and Rita Ora to Pope-like head piece from the one and only Rihanna. The head piece was definitely a trend at the Met Gala.
# Lengthy trains
As earlier said the theme of the met gala was heavenly bodies and it almost seems appropriate to have lengthy trains, if I was going for the Met Gala that would be like the first thing I would be thinking of. Long trains is another common thing in this year’s met gala and I would have to say Blake Lively’s train had me mesmerized, her outfit to the met gala is one of the most talked about if not the most. Blake never disappoints and every met gala she looks more and more like an angel.
# Metallic, leathered or armor-like
- Metallic gowns is another significant trend to the met gala, Jasmine Sanders metallic-gold ball gown was one that stood out, although there aren’t too much details on this gown, the color, style and material made it extravagant.
-Bella hadid had wore a black length gown perfectly fitted with a leathered top, which reminded me of Kate Beckinsale from Underworld.
-Zendaya outdid herself, she went above and beyond in a knight inspired gown. Her gown was inspired by Joan of Arc and i would have to say she killed this look.
