The first Monday in May has come around once again and brought with it style’s night of nights; the Met Gala. An event which André Leon Talley describes as the Super Bowl of fashion, the Met Gala sees global actors and business members converge to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York for an unforgettable evening. The event is an annual fundraiser for the museum’s Costume Institute and sees an elite audience celebrate the overlapping worlds of fashion and art. Dressed in the finest designer and couture labels, everyone who is anyone in the area of fashion attends the Met Gala, and 2016 was no exception.

Every year the Met Gala embodies a theme which corresponds with the Costume Institute’s spring exhibition and for 2016 which has been ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology’. The concept, which demanded somewhat more imagination than last year’s ‘China Through the Looking Glass’, brought forth a assortment of outfits adorned with hardware and metallic glow. Featuring silver and gold colour palettes and plenty of beads, sequins, and alloy, Manus x Machina was a professional lesson in dressing such as a seductive robot. Form-fitting gowns contoured the body and created structural silhouettes which seemed strong and protected. A balance was struck between looking as a bejewelled silver screen siren and something from a Terminator film. Some actors managed to nail this challenging subject while others missed the mark entirely.

Year after year, the Met Gala brings out fashion’s A-list. From models and designers to celebrities and musicians, the best-dressed actors from all over the globe all attend this major event. This year’s event saw the normal audience of guests with a couple new faces in the combination. Unsurprisingly the Kardashian/Jenner clan dominated the red carpet with Kim, Kendall and Kylie all wearing knock-out looks. Woman of the second, Beyonce, also attended and wore a Givenchy gown that nearly resembled bejewelled skin! The naked latex number was an attempt on futuristic fashion which nobody else believed to try. Anna Wintour attracted daughter Bee Shaffer together with her on the red carpet whilst sibling duos Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and Willow and Jaden Smith showed off how fashionable a household can be. Sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid had cameras flashing as they walked the carpet with their musician boyfriends, Zayn Malik and Abęl Makkonen Tesfaye famous for his stage name The Weeknd. Who attended? Far too many to mention but everyone from Madonna and Calvin Klein to Kate Hudson and many Victoria’s Secret Angels showed up to the glamorous night.
Taylor Swift chose an edgy look to match her new bleached-blonde hair and evolving style. The singer rocked a metallic silver, Louis Vuitton, snakeskin dress, and completed her look with burgundy lipstick and heels wrapped up to the knee. The outfit, that pinpointed the theme, had some audiences questioning her choice but we loved it.

Emma Watson looked like the great modern girl in this Calvin Klein production. Feminine yet powerful, the exceptional design suits Emma’s character to the tee.

While everyone was busy wearing Balmain, Kendall Jenner was killing it in Versace. This somewhat sporty, barely-there layout turned all the ideal heads.
Whoa, @kendalljenner ? #metgala #kendalljenner (? : @gettyimages)
Karlie Kloss can pull off anything but we think she seems additional amazing in this architectural-looking Brandon Maxwell layout.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West wore paired Balmain outfits that were heavy on the silver and big round the bling. Even though Kim channelled a glamorous robot, Kanye mixed things up with relaxed, ripped denim and shocking blue contact lenses.

Jourdan Dunn shines at a waterfall of silver within this Balmain dress. Her Victoria’s Secret angel pals Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosio do not seem too bad either!

Karl Lagerfeld’s muse, Kristin Stewart appeared glowing in Chanel. The all-black apparel with added sparkle gave a nod to the theme without over-doing it while Kristin’s silver eye shadow pulled the appearance together perfectly.

While everybody was piling on the bling, Kate Hudson instead picked for intricate cut-out detailing and advanced construction methods for her dress. The white appearance virtually wore garment pattern pieces rather than a proper gown but seemed gorgeous nonetheless.
