In the world of Fashion, The Met Gala is one of the most eclectic and fun red carpets to watch. This is because the event (which was once called Costume Institute Gala) is an annual fundraiser to benefit the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. Each year at this exclusive event, both male and female celebrities jump at the opportunity to decorate themselves in the most radiant, and sometimes outrageous, couture. This year we loved watching the stars in their elaborately dressed glory strut their stuff, but there were a few couples who really popped. Read on about why we loved these looks and tips on how you can mimic them yourself!
# 3 Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield were the perfect combination of chic and funky. To model your own look after Emmas, try blending a two-toned colour blocked outfit with metallic accessories and shoes. For women who are slimmer, don’t be afraid to wear tight clothes. In this case, Emma’s slim figure is perfectly accented by a cropped tank meeting a high-waist. Andrew’s jacket is a perfect compliment to Emma’s hints of silver in her outfit – try to match you partners outfit in the most subtle of ways.
# 2 David and Victoria Beckham
These two are smoother than an ice cream cone in the sun. I have to admit that I don’t usually lust after their looks, but this is perfect pre-labour day elegance in white. Victoria’s dress is absolutely stunning and works because of its similicity. If you’re ever in doubt about how to look great, just go simple. Long soft hair and a simple white dress are a knock-out every time. As for David, his look is a James Bond classic with a touch of fun – a black and white patterned pocket square.
#1 Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
These two were the winners of the night. Blake, always looking amazing, was jaw-dropping in this pink champagne beaded gown. A truly timeless colour that people just don’t wear enough of. Then, she threw in a creative twist by pairing it with blood-red burgundy chunky jewelry. Her beau, saluted her look with a fantastic burgundy bow-tie and a phenomenal velvet tux. A smashing duo of outfits!
