At e.Allen, we certainly love all-things-fashion….and the first Monday in May might be the epitome of it.
After a 2 year Covid hiatus, this year’s Met Gala was back and absolutely better than ever. Notably described as the Academy Award fashion equivalent, the style extravaganza is a fundraising event that gets the utmost attention of just about anyone in the fashion world. Held at the Metropolitan Museum of Arts in New York City, this year’s theme was “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” with the dress code being gilded glamour and white tie.
To say the take the celebrities brought to the red carpet was top notch in an understatement. From classic, upscale glamour to original pieces, our HQ was abuzz in the days to follow discussing the BIG hits of the evening. The following are just a few of our faves worth mentioning. While our commentary can’t relay the breathtaking looks adequately, let’s give it a go.
Our Top 3 Met Gala Dresse for 2022…
- Blake Lively – To die for. There are no words to describe Blake’s look! With the assistance of several helpers, she undid the enormous bow of her shimmering Versace gown on the steps of Met, unveiling a hidden train in an aged copper with the color inspired by the patina of the Statue of Liberty.
- Kim Kardashian – Regardless of if you have love for the Kardashian clan or not, Kim’s Marilyn Monroe recreation was classic, old school glam at it’s finest. Kardashian wore the dress that Monroe had on in 1962 when she sang “Happy Birthday Mr. President” to John F. Kennedy at Madison Square Garden. Between her blonde locks and insane figure, her picturesque look was one for the record books.
- Gwen Stefani – Gwen Stefani’s neon-green gown by Vera Wang deserves a shoutout. While not as publicized in the media, her two piece number was a bright spot of the night, indeed! The color choice was so on trend and in typical Gwen fashion, she was able to make it her own AND make it a highpoint for the evening as well.
