Not everyone brought their A-game to the 2017 Met Gala. Indeed, the stars who did follow the “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between” dress code were few and far between.
Rihanna’s look was the talk of the night. In a dazzling dress made of flower petals cut from floral materials, she turned a lot of heads. The singer was a frontrunner for best dressed on almost every list as she paired the bold look with some serious shoes and a dazzling face full of makeup.
If Rihanna was serving up a taste of the future, Zendaya brought the past back in a powerful way. She ditched her own collection for the night in favor of a retro-inspired Dolce & Gabbana gown patterned with parrots.
Bella Hadid found the space in between a gown and a suit as in a crystal cat suit from Alexander Wang. The model looked like a high-fashion super heroine as she mounted the stairs outside of the Met. Her superpower is apparently avoiding her exes.
Stars like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Hailee Steinfeld showed off very different takes on the theme. Kendall put the middle of her torso on display in a dress with a suggestive cut out. Gigi had a gown with an effective lop-sided look. And Hailee looked like she was on her way to the world’s sexiest bootcamp.
