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 2016 Met Gala Zac PosenClaire 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.

Lupita Nyongo 2016 Met Gala Calvin KleinAcademy Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o stunned in a custom jade sequined Calvin Klein Collection gown with velvet straps, crisscross open back, a plunging V neck, and tulle train.

Willow Smith Jaden Smith 2016 Met GalaWillow Smith sported head-to-toe Chanel Fall 2015, while her brother Jaden Smith rocked Louis Vuitton.

Poppy Delevingne 2016 Met Gala MarchesaPoppy Delevingne in a sleeveless Marchesa Fall 2016 sheer illusion embellished fringe gown.

Kate Hudson 2016 Met Gala Atelier VersaceKate Hudson turned heads in a custom white Atelier Versace strapless cut-out gown with sheer panels, a center front split, and pleated tulle hem.

Kendall Jenner 2016 Met Gala Atelier VersaceKendall Jenner wore a custom sparkly blue and white Atelier Versace gown. Her sheer netted gown features a halter neckline, racerback, side and back cutouts, and center back split.

2016 Met Gala Karolina Kurkova Marchesa GownI 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.
