This past weekend we saw some of the most stunning dresses hit the red carpet at the annual Met Gala, which is a fundraising event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It is a night when Hollywood’s A-list stars come together to celebrate fashion at the grand opening of the Institute’s fashion exhibit. In a Forbes article, Vanna Le highlights the hottest looks and two of the main color trends from the night: red and gold.
Anna Wintour, Reese Witherspoon, Amal Clooney, and Vanessa Hudgens are just a few of the celebrities that looked dazzling in red. Amal Clooney’s Maison Margiela gown was by far a favorite! The layers and layers of over-the-top ruffles made her look as if she was floating across the red carpet.
Reese Witherspoon took the opposite approach with a very smooth and sleek red strapless dress with sky-high slits in the front. She wore the most stunning diamond collar necklace and ravishing red satin sandals. Reese turned to a classic and elegant red look, and made it modern and sexy.
Kate Hudson stole the limelight in a sparkling, body-hugging Michael Kors gown. Her hair was tied back in an elegant bun, letting all the attention stay focused on the dress. The small yet elegant train made the gown even more glamorous!
Last but not least, Rihanna looked absolutely royal in a cape gown designed by Guo Pei. The train was so long she almost needed the red carpet to herself! The embroidered satin dress with fur trims combined with her golden headpiece was certainly enough to capture everyone’s attention.
The Met Gala is the perfect occasion to bring out the most over-the-top gowns. While some stars went for a classic glamorous look, others were bold and daring! Which gown was your favorite?
