The first Monday in May marks the celebration of the Met Gala, where famous faces from across the world come together to raise money for The Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute.
The event also marks the grand opening of the museum’s annual fashion exhibition – this year’s theme is Comme Des Garcons by renowned fashion designer, Rei Kawakubo.
Our Editors share with us their favourite looks, and why….
Rosie Bradley, Editor: “My favourite, or should I say favourites, has to be The Olsen twins in their own label, The Row. There’s something about their style, they are so OTT – but not too much. Their fashion styling is perfect as always – it’s so Carrie Bradshaw meets Miss Havisham – I love it!”
Alysha Stirling, Deputy Editor: “My favourite has to be Dakota Johnson in Gucci. The ruffled detail to the shoulders and hem made a statement but her natural hair and make-up demonstrates true Dakota style. Flawless as always!”
Lucie Simon, Deputy Beauty Editor: “My favourite outfit of the night is a close tie between Gigi Hadid in Tommy Hilfiger and Chrissy Teigen in Marchesa. I love Gigi’s because of the boxy structure, and of course the baby pink vibes. I love Chrissy’s for the fur and mesh, she looks like a delicate swan, and I also thought Zendaya’s dress was amazing, such a gorgeous bold print.”
Beth Gallimore, Social Media Editor: “I loved Selena Gomez in her coach dress. Simple and elegant, she is just stunning. Loved her pink eyeshadow, too!”
Rebecca Wayman, Fashion North Intern: “I can’t choose a favourite, but if I had to round it down to just two, I would firstly pick Claire Foy in Erdem, simply because the dress has a Bardot shoulder and a floral ‘grandma’ print which I’ll always be a sucker for. My other favourite is Felicity Jones in Erdem, too! For me, it’s an updated ‘Little House on the Prairie’ dress with added ruffles in a gorgeous pastel blue perfect for S/S17.”
Georgia Gow, News Editor: “My favourite look was probably Jourdan Dunn! Clean cut/tailoring, on trend with the deconstructed shirt features and classic elements.”
