In the UK, the first Monday in May, we have our bank holiday May Day. Which also happens to be the same day as the most anticipated fashion event, The Met Gala.
Every year I’m online looking at all the creative looks the stars come up with. I thought to make my review slightly different by comparing the celebs 2018 vs 2019 looks. Which year did they do better?
So the theme was Camp: Notes on Fashion which to me I think bright colours and over the top, but it’s always interesting to see how its interpreted.
J Lo never disappoints, and being the J Lo we’ve always loved gave us a signature high leg slit both years. I know she must have the leg pop out of dress pose down to a T. 2018 she wore Balmain, but 2019 I didn’t think she could outdo herself until she wore this silver fringe Versace dress with a matching head piece to complete look. 2019 WINS!
Celine Dion performed at 2017 Gala but wasn’t the biggest wow on the carpet in a Atelier Versace gown. 2018 she was nowhere to be found but 2019 she came to show everyone shes a superstar. Shining bright like diamond in a fringe bodysuit covered in silver sequins, she was the real show stopper of the night. 2019 WINS!
I love me some Ashley Graham, and love what she represents when it comes to body positivity. Last year wearing a strapless golden column dress by Prabal Gurung that fit so well, had her quite high on my best dressed list. However, this year’s Gucci fit I’m not the biggest fan of, or understand why she chose it. I mean at least not for the met gala anyway. nevertheless she still looked cute as always. 2018 WINS!
Cardi B has become someone to look out for on red carpets as she tends to give us unique looks. Last year was Cardi B first met Gala, posing alongside Jeremy Scott who designed her a gorgeous pearl dress as she was pregnant with baby Kulture. 2019 comes along and boom she literally takes over the carpet like a pro in a red Thom Browne dress which took 2000 hours to create. Doesn’t surprise me at all with how huge the trail is. 2018 WINS!
Kylie Jenner 2018 she had recently giving birth and we hadn’t seen much of her, but she came couple up with her Travis Scott in a black Alexander Mcqueen dress, quite a safe look compared to what we’ve seen from her previously. Fast forward to now and she made her entrance looking snatched in Versace lavender feathered dress. I don’t think she could have looked any better, her and sister Kendall definitely complemented each other well. She takes my 2nd place best dressed for sure. 2019 WINS!
HONOURABLE MENTION ALERT:
Have you ever seen an afro so big? Giving us drama, disco, and Diana Ross. Wearing a dress by Peter Dundas, the emerald cut out gown looked beautiful against her skin tone. CiCi I’d say is one of the most consistent with giving us red carpet looks we all commend.
ANOTHER HONOURABLE MENTION ALERT:
To the best to ever do it! The supermodel of all supermodels! Queen of the Met Ball, Naomi Campbell. She continues to work any outfit she wears and dominate any carpet she’s on. Pretty in pink wearing Maison Valentino. A clear best dressed winner for me.
Do you agree with my best dressed/ best year dress choices? Did I miss anyone out? Let me know who you think deserves some appreciation.
