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:

Blake Lively in Versace looked like a goddess last night. Perhaps not a typical reflection of Comme des Garçons, yet still unusual and glamorous to say the least.


Hailey Baldwin wore a stunning Carolina Herrera skirt and bralet. The bold cut and tier effect of the skirt reflects directly upon Comme des Garçons love for exaggerated shapes.


It’s pretty clear that Rihanna hit the nail on the head as she wore a Comme des Garçons dress/skirt/garment/work of art. Theme dressing at its finest.


American actress Zendaya wowed in a gorgeous Dolce and Gabbana gown. This look embraced the bold colour scheme that Comme des Garçons use rather than the avant garde pattern cutting and shapes.


Rita Ora embraced a more typical choice for a Comme des Garçons themed evening from Marchesa. The use of oversized bows and the wrapping effect along with the colour scheme makes this gown both feminine and fashion forward.
