I would personally argue that Rihanna was actually part of China: Through the Looking Glass not just a Met Gala attendee and if she wasn’t originally a part of the exhibit she sure became the main event. That look is a statement. I have always been a major Rihanna fan, but this look went above an beyond anything I would ever expect from anyone. It is a masterpiece and just as worthy of a spot in a museum as any other great work of art. The best part about the look? The fact that she used it as a chance to bring attention to a designer closer to the exhibit than any other designer dressing for the event, she used a true Chinese designer. It’s going to take me a while before I stop dreaming about this look.
If I had to describe to you my dream red carpet dress, this would be it. I have always had this thing with feathers and this color pallet is a dream. Russel looks like a badass in the most sophisticated way possible. This look is glamorous, and tough, and so beautifully fitted to her body. There is so much life in the dress, from the feathers to the scale-like texture on the skirt. This dress is everything.
I dare you to look at this woman and tell me she isn’t way cooler than all of us. I mean look at her in that dress, she is taking no prisoners. I’ve always been inspired and in love with the whole punk look and this one is very very punk, in true Marc Jacobs fashion.The tall boots and sheer bottom are a surprisingly perfect match. I’m just a tiny bit obsessed (but only a little…).
Ok, so I must admit that I first saw this look on the Snapchat story of the Met Gala. As soon as that 10 second snap was up the first thing I did was get online and she who was wearing it. I had a good feeling it was Dolce and Gabbana, it’s so true to the label. Eaton looks like royalty. Every single element of this look compliments all of the others. It’s almost as if she just stepped of the Dolce runway and made her way to the gala right after. She looks like a doll, beautiful.
I should start by admitting that I wasn’t always a fan of Zendaya due to the root of her rise to fame. However, the girl has definitely proven to be more than just “that Disney girl” and become one of my absolute favorites red carpet after red carpet. She’s young and she’s sophisticated and has truly grown into her style, a quite covetable one at that. Now let’s talk about this dress specifically. It’s a work of art, honestly I’m a little bit hesitant to even call it a dress because it’s so much more than that. This is the kind of piece that will be remembered ten years from now. When other people are telling their kids about their great adventures I’ll most likely be rambling on about the dress Zendaya wore to the 2015 Met Gala. There really aren’t words that describe the magnificence of this dress.
BONUS! Worse Dressed Met Gala Look
I would just like to take a stand against everyone talking about how great this look is just because it’s “Queen Bey”. This looks is trashy and a hot mess. Yes, Madonna and Katy Perry looked like complete train wrecks, but someone needs to point out that even Beyonce misses the note sometimes. She has a killer body, great, this dress is far too much. Bedazzling a naked body isn’t style, she just looks like a glorified hooker and i’m over it. Just because Beyonce is great (although in my opinion a little over rated), doesn’t mean she always looks good. Sorry but you weren’t the queen this time Bey.
