MET Gala 2015

This year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala paid homage to the influence of Chinese culture, fashion and art on Western fashion and design, inspired by the museum’s upcoming spring exhibitionChina: Through the Looking Glass”. Guests and celebrities put their best outfits to attend one of the most important fashion events of the year, making it a fantastic evening, full of drama and glamour. The attendees embraced this year’s theme, with the majority of the chosen outfits resembling traditional Oriental clothing, made of delicate garments adorned with sequins and embroidery, in striking red, elegant black and glittering gold. We saw a lot of kimono-inspired designs, like Chloë Sevigny’s custom J.W. Anderson, Gong Li’s impressive Cavalli gown or Lady Gaga’s oversized Balenciaga that was adorned with feathers. Karolina Kurkova opted for a sensual, oriental-inspired mini by Tommy Hilfiger, while Georgia May Jagger was one of the first celebrities to wear an ensemble by Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s new creative director.

The red team was represented by supermodel Linda Evangelista, Jessica Hart, Helen Mirren, Banks, Kris Jenner and Reese Witherspoon, while the black team counted with Vera Wang, Karlie Kloss, Caroline Trentini, Jamie Bochert, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Gisele Bündchen and a spectacular Julianne Moore in a custom Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci. Another trend was the statement headdresses, from Karen Elson’s gold Dolce & Gabbana tiara to Sarah Jessica Parker’s stunning Philip Tracey headpiece that resembled burning flames and bore long red tassels on each side, which she matched with a custom gown made in collaboration with H&M and its Conscious Collection.

Kate Hudson, in a sexy gown with gold sequins by Michael Kors, Jessica Chastain, in a sparkling gown by Givenchy, and Anne Hathaway, in a Ralph Lauren Collection lame column gown, proved that what glitters is gold. On the other hand, Beyoncé, in a bejeweled Givency gown, and Kim Kardashian, in a white gown by Peter Dundas for Roberto Cavalli, opted for sexy, semi-transparent designs that stole the spotlight. Kendall Jenner went minimal with an emerald ombre Calvin Klein dress by Francisco Costa, while Diane Kruger didn’t disappoint with an original Chanel Haute Couture ensemble. Madonna and Katy Perry opted for Jeremy Scott and his graffiti gowns for Moschino, Miley Cyrus went punky in an Alexander Wang dress, and Jennifer Lopez made a striking appearance in an Atelier Versace gown, hand in hand with Donatella Versace. Last, but not least, Cher made a surprise appearance, her first at the MET gala since 1997, in a floor length Marc Jacobs gown, accompanied by the designer himself.
