Met Gala 2017: The Best Dressed
It was perhaps the most exciting and avant garde Met Gala yet thanks to the theme of this years exhibition – Rei Kawakubo and Comme des Garçons. This design house sports sculptural and bold designs, an aesthetic echoed in the garments of those attending.
For Rei Kawakubo, the exhibition titled ‘The Art of the In-Between’ is a massive insight to her and her designer mind, something fairly rare from the ‘silent designer’. Many of Comme des Garçons’ garments and sculptural pieces are pieces of art, taking little notice of the placement of arms or legs. It is within this design house that eccentricity and exciting pattern cutting is famously merged.
We loved a variety of looks from the evening – some guests went for a more traditional, glamorous look whereas others really embraced and attempted to reflect the creativity of Rei Kawakubo.
Our five favourite looks are:
