Loads of A-listers showed up and showed out at last night’s Met Gala.
This year’s theme was all about the living legend and uniquely talented Rei Kawakubo and her label Comme des Garcons. Having started the company in 1973, Kawakubo’s Comme des Garcons collections have impressed many a fashion lover with it’s avant garde aesthetic and distorted proportions. The name translated means “anti-fashion” which ironically has been the driving force behind the label’s success.
This being said the avante garde theme of this year’s Met Gala gave the celebrities in attendance the perfect excuse to turn up the shock and awe. There were lots of amazing looks but a few of them in particular had me smiling from the inside out.
I couldn’t post without mentioning my boys Jaden Smith and Luka Sabbat. It was no shock that these two would eventually find themselves in a picture together. This is perfectly fine with me seeing as how I’m low-key obsessed with them both. Jaden wore his go to label of choice Louis Vuitton, where he formerly was house muse. Smith accessorized his look with a diamond encrusted grille as well as his newly shorn blonde locks. Luka Sabbat, who still has his locs, chose to don a bold red tuxedo by Dolce & Gabbana Alto Sartorio (Dolce & Gabbana’s mens couture line). Sabbat, who is currently starring in Dolce & Gabbana’s spring ad campaigns, was a perfect mix of sartorial elegance and laid back cool.
Speaking of Jaden, his ex Kylie Jenner took my breath away. Say what you want about her, Kylie was nothing short of perfection in her Atelier Versace creation. Platinum blonde bob and Donatella Versace as her accessories, Jenner was the queen of the night.
Last but certainly not least I have to give it to my girl Rihanna. The “Phresh off the Runway” singer was sort of “fresh off the runway” having chosen a Comme Des Garcons piece straight from their fall 2016 runway collection. You gotta hand it to her, not many people can pull off wearing a byzantine conduit of fabric in assorted colors and prints. No surprise, consequently the pop singer could have walked down the carpet wearing a burlap sack and would still have looked better than half the women there.
