Best of the 2016 Met Gala: Everything That Shines

3 May

This year’s Met Gala theme is ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology’ exploring the conflict and marriage between handcrafted pieces and how technology has enhanced/changed the way garments are made. So pretty much putting tech under the spotlight and as with previous Met Galas there are those that get the theme spot on, those who just wear whatever is pretty and those who go all in.

We’ve got a couple of posts with our favorite looks from the night and kicking things off with so much sparkle, shine and a very special dress.Claire DanesClaire Danes does dramatic ball gown in Zac Posen and from a glance it appears to be an iridescent Cinderella inspired take with not a whole lot of tech. Beautiful, but it would be understandable why Hugh Dancy is raising an eyebrow (and looking super handsome). But nope this is the perfect embodiment of the theme as Zac Posen’s Instagram photos and video show.

Magic moments!! Zacposen #metgala #clairedanes

Along with seeing how spectacular this gown looks, I also love that you can hear Claire Danes discussing with Dancy what booze she is gonna be drinking.

Jourdan DunnEntering the metallic zone of which there were many and Jourdan Dunn’s Balenciaga is one of the standouts. It looks like she has been dipped in liquid metal.

Even better is this shot looking out over the city of New York pre-Gala.Brie LarsonA close runner-up in the best of the silver looks is Brie Larson wearing Proenza Schouler serving up a whole lot of fierce in dark lipstick and a tiered sequin silhouette. For more on the design process check out this in-depth look and behind the scenes photos at Vogue.Lupita Nyong'oTime to break up the silvers with Lupita Nyong’o doing dramatic with an incredible updo and green Calvin Klein; this is how you do the Met Gala.  Naomi WattsBurberry does floral infused metallic and Naomi Watts’ all the silver accessories work like a charm here with another tech interpretation that points to all things shiny.Lady GagaYou can always trust Lady Gaga to run with a theme and here she mixes in a healthy dose of an 80s music video and her love of all things crazy platform in Atelier Versace.Alexa ChungWe get our first #LadySuitWatch2016 alert for the Met Gala and Alexa Chung is a sparkly vision in Thakoon.Nicole KidmanThe theme is tech related but it could easily have been something magic based on a lot of the looks (which I guess technology feels like at times) and Nicole Kidman is very much giving witchy beauty in Alexander McQueen.
Kristen StewartGoing in close on Kristen Stewart because her edgy silver makeup is the perfect look for her Chanel sparkles and knotted/braided bleach blonde locks. Roots and all.
Emily BluntThe light is shining on Emily Blunt and she’s giving us bold color sequins in Michael Kors; this is every level of beautiful.ZendayaOnly Zendaya could make a bowl haircut a high fashion moment and she is another one slaying in Michael Kors.

    […] I tend to wear and because she is another attendee who pays attention to the theme; remember her light up Zac Posen last year?! Yeah you do. Diddy stole the show with his super casual staircase posing and Cassie looks great […]
