So finally Met Gala 2017 took place and wowed the world with its astonishingly Glamorous Red Carpet. The event which is considered to be ‘The Oscars of Fashion’ is always one of the highly anticipated events of the year where celebrities from around the world walk the walk of glamour and power.
One of the reasons I look forward to this event so much is that this event is by and for the Fashion World. Every year, the red carpet is set on a theme and this year the theme was Comme des Garçons which is a French Fashion Label founded and headed by Rei Kawakubo.
If you are wondering what the MET Gala is, the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit, a black-tie extravaganza held the first Monday in May to raise money for the Costume Institute (a.k.a. the fashion department), the only one of the Met’s curatorial departments that has to fund itself. Unofficially, Monday night’s festivities in New York have been called many things, including “the party of the year,” “the Oscars of the East Coast”.
The theme got better of the celebrities as they took their own take of the same and came out with dazzling glitterati. Bold, Colorful and dramatic eyes ruled the red carpet along with some crazy and over the top yet Dope fashion inspirations.
Now the 2017 event was even more special for us because of the fact that our Desi Girls; Priyanka Chopra & Deepika Padukone also made their Red Carpet debut for the event.
While Priyanka Chopra broke the net with her train-long Ralph Lauren Trench, Deepika went slightly aloof from the theme and came along as a precious Ice Princess wearing a Tommy Hilfiger Gown. I personally loved both their styles and couldn’t help but cry over the fact I won’t ever be over there to witness the event (life! Hehe)
Power Couples displayed their share of Glamour PDA with new couple Selena Gomez & The Weeknd taking the cake for appearing like a newly wed one. Bad Girl Rihanna once again proved that she was the Ultimate Queen of Met Gala. Katy Perry’s Crazy Red Carpet look caught everyone off guard. The Jenners turning heads with their Nude Dresses and Kim K looking ‘Oh-so-Sober’; this year had too many grand moments!
My Top Picks of the evening will be:
