This year’s Met Gala was everything but mainstream. I am not sure if the theme inspired the attendees to behave and dress unconventionally, but we all have to admit there were some jaw-dropping and inspiring moments.
1. Jaden Smith Carried his Dreadlock As An Accessory on the Red Carpet
Jaden is well-known for his experiments with clothes and accessories. His all-black Louis Vuitton outfit at the Met Gala 2017 probably seemed too settled for him, but he decided to accessorize it with his own dreadlocks. Jaden cut off his dreadlocks recently, but it seems that he is still not ready to live without them.
2. Kim Kardashian Passed on The Drama at This Year’s Met Gala
For someone who built a career wearing the latest fashion and dictating trends, it was so unexpected to see her show up in a simple white gown. Not only did her outfit not match this year’s theme, but this simple Vivienne Westwood dress is not comparable to anything that Kim has worn in the past. At previous Met Galas, and other glamorous events, Kim always reached for extravagant gowns with a lot of details. Anyway, I have to say that the off shoulder dress looked amazing on Kim and Mario Dedivanovic once again did an outstanding job with Kim’s makeup.
3. Nicki Minaj Ruled the Red Carpet in H&M
The queen of hip-hop surprisingly didn’t reach for any high-end designers for this year’s Met Gala. Her personal stylist Maher Jridi worked together with the H&M team and created this custom-made outfit that everybody is talking about. The outfit features a satin kimono top and black vinyl rose details. Additionally, the obi belt that features the face of Rei Kawakubo, this year’s honored designer made this outfit unlike anything else we saw on the red carpet.
4. Wiz Khalifa Smoked It on The Red Carpet
Jaden Smith wasn’t the only one with an unusual red carpet accessory. While other celebrities were striking poses, Wiz Khalifa took a blunt out of his pocket and started smoking it right there in front of all the cameras. We all know that Wiz is a free spirit, but nobody expected this at the most classy event of the year.
5. P Diddy Lounged on the Red Carpet
P Diddy took a break from the photographers while his wife Cassie was still preoccupied posing for the cameras. He wrote on Twitter: ”I was getting tired so I laid down on the stairs!!! #METGALA”
Probably every man has felt the same as P Diddy did. As ladies, we like to take our time, whether it is shopping or posing until we get the perfect shot! So, I guess his reaction shouldn’t be so “unexpected”.
6. Two Celebrities Wore La Perla Haute Couture Dresses
The lingerie brand La Perla apparently designs gowns now too. After all that we saw on the red carpet, lingerie-like gowns probably are not the weirdest thing. Kendall Jenner wore a barely-there asymmetrical gown with a deep cut in the back, showing off her La Perla Thong.
Mary J. Blige showed up in La Perla’s newest innovation, a latex lace gown. The sheer black gown with a high split that showed off her legs was completed with black platform heels and some jewelry.
