Meet Me At The Met: Comme des Garçons

by - 11:21:00 AM

Hello lovely people!

It is that time of the year and one of the most talked about events has certainly delivered! That's right, I'm talking about the Met Gala! Last year was one of my absolute favorites. I know that each year it gets more and more dramatic and avant garde, but I wasn't sure if the celebs and designers were going to pass up last years theme! You can see why last year was so epic HERE!

This years theme for the 2017 Met Gala  was Rei Kawakubo/ Comme des Garçons! Kawakubo is known for very avant garde designs and is definitely not for fashion minimalism lol.  Either way, a lot of her designs are both intriguing and breathtaking.

So the other night this fashion free for all took place and I was not disappointed! First up is Donald Glover.
He rocked this Burberry suit! I love the different shades of deep blue and the hint of maroon. I feel like people underestimate men when it comes to making bold statements in their wardrobes. He definitely wore this well.

Next we have the beautiful Janelle Monae.  She looked royaly stunning in this piece. It reminds me of a new take on something from the 1800's with this cinched waist line and the way the dress accentuates her neck. She looks flawless!

Lily Rose absolutely popped in this Chanel number! This pink is the perfect shade for spring and the minimal accented roses fits perfectly!

How stunning is Mandy Moore?! Sometimes I can't believe this is the same girl  woman that I grew up jamming too. This dress definitely adds drama right along with that gorgeous purple smokey eye!

ok, can we just pause and give a round of applause for Nick Jonas! I mean seriously, this guy went from shy, curly, boy band nice guy to super chic , masculine heart throb! His transition from boy to man has definitely been one for the books! He looks great in this Ralph Lauren suit.

Rita Ora is another one that has transitioned in to a fashion eye candy. I remember seeing a music video she did a while back  and all I kepot thinking was like "ehh wanna be Rhianna.." But boy has she proved me wrong! She is stunning and very fashion forward. Not only is she elegant but she is so posed and reminds me of a vintage beauty.

Rose, dear Rose.. I'll never let go! lol.  How amazing does Rose Byrne look!? This color looks great against her glowing skin. She is naturally petite and doesn't have many "curves" but this dress easily agrees with her sleek silhouette.

Stella Maxwell is every girls boudoir photo shoot dream! What woman doesnt want to drape herself with a gazillion pearls and diamonds and wear it as a dress?? My favorite part is the back of the dress, I love how the string of pearls just drape across her perfectly.

This last look was absolutely my FAVORITE! Usually at red carpet events and award shows, I rarely have a "hands down winner", but this... THIS is stunning! Zendaya stole the show in my opinion. Her hair in its natural glory looked beautiful and her makeup was so on point I almost shed a tear. Her Dolce & Gabbana dress was perfect for this event and she wore this dress! Not the other way around. She looks like a perfectly painted masterpiece in this look and I for one am going to start following her more closely!

 There were so many other amazing looks from the night but all of these really stood out to me. I love red carpets and I love seeing those that walk it in beautiful pieces of art. I studied fashion for years and every time I see a beautiful design, I can't help but feel like a proud family member. I know all the hard work that goes into preparing, creating and perfecting designs. I admire so many of them for making their dreams come true!
