You’re probably wondering what on earth I am on about. Am I genuinely writing a blog post about bank holiday Monday? The answer to that is quite simply – well – No! Monday is such an important day because it is the 2017 Met Gala.
This year’s theme is Comme Des Garcons: Art of the In-between. The Gala will celebrate the work of one of the most influential designers of the last 40 years, Rei Kawakudo.
Kawakudo is the only living (Other than Yves Saint Laurent in 1983) designer to attend a Met Gala tribute to their work.
To Celebrate the Met, let’s take a look back at some of my favourite Met Gala looks ever!
The Beautiful Lupita glowing in this pleated green gown.
China through the looking glass was one of my favourite themes.
Another favourite of mine was last year’s theme, Manus X Machina. The styles were electric… literally!
#ManusxMachina #victoryforufashion More Met gala posts will happen tomorrow. I wish I could do them live for you but that's the price you pay when you're a fashion blogger in a different country and time zone to where you want to be. Keep it locked here at Victoryforu. We'll have a look at Cameron Dallas' eyes digitally printed on a scarf, Anna Wintour's white dress and the many other suits and dresses that will grace the Manus X Machina red carpet. Victorious Everyday.
Repost @metmuseum ・・・Supermodel @karliekloss channels the "white tie tech" theme at tonight's Met Gala. #ManusxMachina | Karlie is stunning. This dress plays to all of her strengths, her waist, her height and the colour makes her skin look flawless. And her clutch has some crazy cool lights on it. I wonder if she koded it? #victoryforufashion Victorious Everyday.
Repost @metmuseum ・・・Model @gigihadid and pop star @Zayn Malik make their red carpet debut at tonight’s Met Gala. #ManusxMachia | Gigi Hadid in Tommy Hilfiger and Zayn Malik in Versace. Absolutely stunning. Both seem to be channelling high fashion cyborgs. I love the high shine of Zayn's metallic sleeves. #victoryforufashion Victorious Everyday.
Repost @metmuseum ・・・Videographer Gordon Von Steiner (@gvsgvs) captured intimate portraits of tonight’s guests at the Met Gala. Here the night’s @balmain gang including @joansmalls, @cindycraawford and @officialjdunn @alessandraambrosio and @doutzen pose for the camera. #ManusxMachina | White and Silver definitely give a futuristic vibe especially with this lighting. #victoryforufashion Victorious Everyday.
These have to be some of my favourite looks through the recent years.
I can’t wait to see what is to offer on Monday!
