If you’re anything like me, you’ve been counting down the days until the first Monday in May comes around. This very special Monday means that the Met Gala is here! A celebration where fashion and art meet, and stunning exhibitions are shown off in the Metropolitan Museum in New York. Every year a new exhibition graces the museum and the opening night, or the Met Gala’s theme reflects the theme of the exhibit. This years theme is; Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons. Rei Kawakubo is the head and founder of the brand Comme des Garçons, this theme was bound to bring a slew of avant-garde pieces to the gala, but surprisingly many attendees did not dress to theme (in my opinion). 

Many guests, who are mostly celebs, just dressed as one would to an average red carpet and seemed to have done very little, if any research into the theme. Many celebs wore basic, ‘cute’ dresses fresh of the runway, and although most were gorgeous, they did not fit the theme. Here are some of my favourite looks of the night, that in my opinion fit the theme. I’ve also included a list of ‘honourable mentions’ who looked stunning but not on theme. All photos were taken from Vogue Runway, thank you all for reading, Emma x.
