As the red carpet rolled out for the 68th time since 1949, a very reputable list of A-list celebrities were busy getting camera ready for one of the biggest events of the year. The 2016 Met Gala would be focusing on “Fashion in an Age of Technology”. This year’s hosts were, chairwoman Anna Wintour, Taylor Swift, Idris Elba and Apple chief design officer Jonathan Ive.
It was safe to say that guests this year definitely took the “Manus x Machina” theme and ran with it. Metallic, chrome inspired, silver and metal influenced fabric and textures graced the red carpet as celebrities took this very haute couture event to the next level. This is the red carpet event of the year where celebrities tend to step out of their comfort zone in order to see who can take the crown as best dressed.
Honorary chairs this year are Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, Miuccia Prada and Nicolas Ghesquiere, Louis Vuitton’s artistic director. For this reason, there were quite a number of celebrities acting as muses for these brands. They tend to be invited by high end labels to act as a form of advirtisement. Below are a few photos of the best looks, in my opinion. Did you guys watch this year? If so, who were your favorites?
