2016 Met Gala Best Red Carpet Looks
The theme of the 2016 Met Gala was “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” but many celebs opted to play it safe. Instead of giving us futuristic fashion, side cutouts and metallic gowns were among the night’s biggest trends. Only a handful of looks really stood out from the sea of silver and Balmain gowns that dominated the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Here are a few of my faves this year:
Claire Danes stole the show in a custom made powder blue strapless Zac Posen fiber optic woven organza ball gown with a sweetheart neckline. A sleek updo and red lips finished off her Cinderella-inspired look. Click HERE to see her gown glow in the dark.
I also loved Karolina Kurkova’s custom gown, which was designed by Marchesa and IBM’s supercomputer, Watson. The “cognitive” white tulle gown is embroidered with 150 LED flowers that change colors with the model’s emotions.
Noticeably absent was Rihanna, who had owned last year’s Met Gala in a 55 pound gown by Chinese designer Gui Pei. But thanks to these looks, the red carpet at the 2016 Met Gala wasn’t a complete letdown.
