i haven’t done a red… pink carpet review in yonkssss however i was blow away by many looks at this years event. The dress code was camp and A LOT of people got this wrong…Andrew Bolton, curator of the Costume Institute, has framed the exhibition around Susan Sontag’s seminal 1964 essay Notes on "Camp", which posited different ways in which the concept could be construed. Bolton told Hamish Bowles that he found Sontag’s writings so timely with what is going on culturally and politically that, “[he] felt it would have a lot of cultural resonance.” A few mentioned below but I literally am showcasing the looks that I like!
Rachel Brosnahan wearing Erdem
If your a fan of Erdem Moralıoğlu you may have recognised this dress from his look autumn/winter 2019 collection (yes look 19!!).
The original look drew inspiration from Italian Princess, Donna Orietta Doria-Pamphilj-Landi, for Rachel Bronsnahans camps look Erdem reworked this design using organza and adding attitude with a frilly tiered ball gown silhouette and 7ft train.
Elizabeth Debicki wearing Salvatore Ferragamo
Trust Salvatore Ferragamos Paul Andrew to bring romance to the Met Gala! This voluminous bow is everything teamed with white satin 1950’s pageant style gloves. I’m not a fan of the two tone leather boots, however it adds to the campness of the look opposed to more delicate heeled sandal which would probably of been paired with this look under another circumstance.
Florence Welch wearing Gucci
Statement shoulders was a big trend on this years pink carpet and Florence’s cape did not disappoint. I’m a big fan of layers and structure and this cape designed bu Gucci’s Alessandro Michele delivered for me! This Magical medieval-inspired turquoise and lilac beaded cape was perfectly matched with a sheer lace dress embellished with delicate jewels. BEAUTIFUL!
Julia Garner wearing Zac Posen
Can we take a second to really appreciate Zac Posen and his fantastic draping skills. Movement belongs to him and he manages to create beautiful dress that are not just 2d, not just pretty from one angle but are well thought through and really are true pieces of art! Julia wore this stunning 3D-printed vine headpiece that included leaf and berry embellishments. It was printed as a single piece with brass plating, and took over 22 hours!
Hailey Bieber wearing Alexander Wang
Wang does no wrong! I love this cute gown which highlights Hailey’s cheeky side. Who know a G-sting backless dress could be so cute?! This high neck pastel pink sequin design screams millennial camp, finished off with Bvlgari diamond earrings and a classic black bow with perfect pony tail.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen wearing vintage Chanel
Two looks not loved by many however the Olsen twins truly know fashion and always commit to styles that are technically interesting opposed to the latest trends. Yes i am a fan of The Row! I must say these are not looks I would or could wear however I have a huge appreciation for the girls pulling off this look in such a glamours and dare I say elegant way. I’m not a fan of the yellow satin lining however the pleating, cinched waists and controlled draping all incorporated into long-length leather dresses really screams camp in a whole different way!
Naomi Campbell wearing Valentino Haute Couture
Naomi Campbell walked the pink carpet alongside Valentinos Pier Paolo Piccioli. This is such a fun look, I’m in love with the pink lace tights, side slit dress and vintage diamond and gemstone bracelets by Bulgari. But not only did Naomi bring camp to the met gala with this outfit she camp with her attitude bringing her assistant onto the pink carpet with the sole job to fan her and her feathers. Now that’s camp!
Irina Shayk wearing Burberry
Velvet dreams!!! So many velvet dresses have been made over the years, some beautiful other not so much! This gorgeous number including matching gloves has me going crazy, the rich blue, full sleeves, deep v neckline with art deco esque jewel to finish really makes me go wow. Understated camp which is so glam!
