The Best Met Gala Looks of All Time

It is the first Monday in May. Otherwise known as the Met Gala. One of the few days of the year that the Met Museum is closed to the public, in order to host the Met Gala fundraiser for the museum’s Costume Institute. The Costume Institute is critical for preserving and celebrating the history of fashion.

There has always been a debate of whether fashion should be considered art, and often fashion is not included in art museums. This started to change in 2011 when the Met hosted the exhibit Savage Beauty which celebrated the work of the late Alexander McQueen. I had the privilege of attending the exhibit, and it was one of my most inspired days as a designer. McQueen was a true artist. His clothing told stories in the most stunning fashion.

The Costume Institute and Met Gala continue to celebrate the art and beauty of fashion. The red carpet is a celebration of the fashion industry and the incredible storytelling work of designers. This year’s theme, Camp, which is co-chaired by Lady Gaga will not disappoint.

Before looking forward, it’s always fun to look back at some of the most stunning looks from previous Met Galas.

Taylor Swift, 2014

Beautiful classic Taylor. The look was buried in the Look What You Made Me Do music video, but it will forever be in our hearts. Dress by Oscar de la Renta.

Beyoncé, 2015

I’ll finish this post, but Beyoncé really did have the best Met Gala look of all time. She actually invented having a body. We are blessed to live at the same time as her. Dress by Givenchy.

Kendall Jenner, 2016

This Versace dress is incredible and KJ is probably the only person on earth who could pull it off.

Kendall Jenner, 2014

Kendall is the best Kardashian, by far. She killed the red carpet again in 2014. Dress by Top Shop.

Naomi Campbell, 1995

Naomi still looks the same and the iconic Versace dress would still look just as good. I was 6 years old and wearing overalls then.
