12 Best: Cara Delevingne in Chanel
You saw her as sorceress in Suicide Squad but in real life Cara Delevingne is a real fashion icon who knows how to choose her outfits. Cara is an English fashion model and her futuristic beauty look won her the best Beauty look at the Met Gala.
11 Worst: Nicki Minaj in H&M
Nicki Minaj’s costume looked too much like a super villain straight out of a comic book. Even though she showed plenty of flesh in her ensemble, it wasn’t enough to hide the fact that H&M, responsible for her gown designed b y Rei Kawakubos, might have hastily put it together. The only plus point of her outfit were the Versace platform heels.
10 Best: Claire Danes in Monse
The American actress who resides in New York City showcased a frilly white blouse with a floor length cape. Pairing her outfit with black slacks gave it a professional look and a perfect example of the Monse touch. Incidentally, Monse is the child of fashion designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia.
9 Worst: Lena Dunham in Elizabeth Kennedy
Lena Dunham threw her hands up in despair to find Joe Jonas appearing at the event dressed in the same outfit. The American actress, producer, writer, and director from NYC chose a one shoulder Elizabeth Kennedy gown made from maroon tartar fabric and paired it with loose bangs. She ended up photobombing one of Joe’s pictures with her hands placed behind her head. That’s totally uncool.
8 Best: Kerry Washington in Michael Kors
Scandals star Kerry Washington arrived at the Met Gala wearing a black and silver Michael Kors ensemble. She seems to have been the only celebrity who stuck to the theme of the event which was “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between,” Kerry’s outfit consisted of artfully-placed cutouts to celebrate the vague adjective “in-between”. Credit to her for doing so.
7 Best: Gigi Hadid in Tommy Hilfiger
Gigi Hadid has always been a brand ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger and as usual, the supermodel appeared at the Met gala wearing a nude asymmetrical Tommy Hilfiger dress which dazzled at the event and showing a bit of leg in the bargain.
6 Best: Selena Gomez in Coach
Trust Selena Gomez t pull off a great outfit at every event. Among costumes of Met Gala 2017, Gomez shone in a Coach ensemble. The multinational luxury dress label felt that Gomez was the perfect model to showcase their goods and she did look heavenly in a cute lace dress with embellishments sprinkles all over. It reflected her own playful demeanor which was aesthetically paired off with rosy pink eyeshadow. Selena was named the face of Coach in December 2016 with a $10 million deal.
5 Worst: Kendall Jenner in La Perla
Kendall Jenner kept up the reputation of the Kardashians by appearing in a La Perla dress in which she seemed out of place. In fact the outfit was barely even there and one asks repeatedly what a lingerie brand is doing making dresses that ultimately look like lingerie. The only good thing was that voyeurs got an eyeful of Jenner’s backside and long legs as the outfit left little to the imagination. It belonged more in a Victoria secret fashion show rather than the Met Gala.
4 Best: Janelle Monae in Ralph & Russo
The Kansas-born singer-songwriter not only makes good music but has great dressing sense. The 31-year-old appeared at the Met gala in a Ralph & Russo lacy white tank top with a flowing white tulle skirt. The outfit was paired with Brian Atwood shoes, Tiffany & Co. jewelry, and a Jimmy Choo clutch. Janelle looked on cloud nine at the event.
3 Worst: Katy Perry in Maison Martin Margiela
It seems that singer Katy Perry led the worst dressed brigade at the Met gala. Even though she served as one of the Gala’s co chairs, she was seen wearing a Maison Martin Margiela dress touted as wearable art. Designed by fashion designer John Galliano, it truly looked like anything but art as Perry seemed miserably lost in trying to manage the outfit.
2 Best: Gisele Bündchen in Stella McCartney
Retired Brazilian supermodel Giselle Bundchen looked very cool in a Stella Mcartney outfit. Wearing minimal accessories, she lit up the red carpet alongwith husband Tom Brady who looked equally good in a velvet suit jacket.
1 Best: Rihanna in Comme des Garçons
According to all fashion reviews, surprisingly it was Rihanna who turned out the best dressed celeb among all costumes at the Met gala 2017. Well that’s fashion, art and style for you or whatever you want to call it. The singer turned up in a Comme De garcons dress designed by Rei Kawakubo from the fall 2016 collection. Pairing the outfit with gladiator heels that featured straps all the way up to her thighs, Rihanna stole the red carpet despite an ensemble that somewhat looks like an artwork of scrap and construction paper. However, she never really looked silly in it and pulled it off quite well.
