All eyes were on Zendaya when she arrived in her Dolce and Gabbana Alta Moda ball gown which was covered with tropical parrot print in bright colours of yellow, orange, white, tangerine, blue etc. Her voluminous afro and bright coral lips just made the look even more amazing. We can say that she took this year’s met gala dress code to a whole new level.
Emma Roberts looked ravishing in her elegant and simple, bright red spaghetti strap gown from Diane von Furstenberg. The baby pink fur stole made the look more feminine.
Lilly Rose Depp
The 16 year old budding model wore a hot pink strapless sequined dress from Chanel. Her dramatic eye makeup was perfect for the look. Her outfit was refreshing, young and vibrant.
Vogue described her look as “futuristic ballerina”. The layered tulle skirt and cropped bustier was designed by Carolina Herrera. The white and muted off white colours of the gown plus the veil made her look like a modern fairytale princess.
Priyanka Chopra made her debut at the met gala in the longest trench coat in the world, designed by Ralph Lauren. The gown had a huge train. The Bollywood star oozed confidence. Her dress also became the subject of countless memes on the internet.
Miranda Kerr twirled her way into the Met Gala in her pretty and feminine Oscar de la Renta dress and Christian Louboutin shoes. She looked like a doll in her metallic floral ball gown. Her sleek updo and classic red lipstick complimented the look perfectly.
Gigi Hadid looked stunning in a very unique nude coloued dress by Tommy Hilfiger. The all beige dress matched her hair colour which she dyed especially for the look. The dress was a mix between a coat and a tulle gown.
Laura Osnes looked a like beautiful walking rose in her gown by Christian Siriano.
Taylor Hill was not only one of the best dressed at the Met Gala but also had one of the best makeup looks. Donned in a simple but elegant burgundy off shoulder gown by Carolina Herrera, Hill’s makeup artist Patrick decided to go for a stunning burgundy smokey eye, which combined with her aqua green-blue eye colour, you could see from a mile away.
Rose Byrne wore the one of the most daring gowns at the Met Gala in terms of how revealing it was. The extremely low cut Ralph Lauren gown featured layers of voluminous tulle. It takes a lot to carry off a red gown but Rose did it well with her voluminous curls and red lipstick.
Elle Fanning looked like a modern Cinderella in her muted blue Miu Miu gown. The powder blue tulle gown gave her a beautiful flowy silhouette.
Cara Delevingne pushed red carpet dress code standards to new level with her robotic and extremely original Chanel outfit. But what caught everyone’s attention more was her silver painted bald head.
Never thought we would see this day, but Kylie Jenner looked better than her sisters Kim and Kendall in her sheer Versace gown.

Internet users later did point out the similarity between what Beyoncé wore at the Met Gala in 2015 and Kylie’s gown this year.
Some honourable mentions are Kate Hudson with her white hair matching her gown, Ruby Rose looking fierce as always, Rita Ora, Lily Aldridge in her extremely original look, Candice Swanepoel in a basic but elegant black gown and Ruth Negga in her stunning Valentino dress.
