Met Gala 2019 | My Favourite Looks

It's no secret that the Met Gala is the fashion event of the year. I wouldn't be surprised if the guests plan their entire year around this event, as it's surely not one to miss and the outfit has to be perfect.

This year, the theme was "Camp: Notes on Fashion", capturing the essence of Susan Sontag's 1964 essay "Notes on Camp" in which she explores the representation of fashion and it's eccentricity and aesthetic realms. The guests went truly out this year, with some of the most spectacular outfits the eye ever did see. Here is a list of my favourite looks from the Met Gala 2019 red carpet:
Gwen Stefani in Moschino

What says OTT more than jewels, a long furry train and a pair of fishnet stockings? Gwen Stefani looks absolutely divine in this light pink number; almost like a showgirl ready to prance about the stage. The high ponytail sweeps her hair off her face, allowing for the outfit to be the main center of attention, and her make-up is glamorous yet not so bold so as to detract from the fabulousness that is her outfit!

Céline Dion in Oscar de la Renta

It's almost as though the theme of Camp was made for Céline Dion. With a headdress to rival even the perkiest of palm trees, her ensemble is fabulous, with so much glamour and sparkle that would make anyone jealous. Even her pose is just so fabulous, she absolutely nailed it.

Naomi Campbell in Valentino

Dressed head to toe in the most adorable shade of bubblegum pink, this supermodel looks an absolute treat, with pink feathers adorning her train. The pink lace tights are a beautiful detail that adds a little flair to the outfit, whilst the translucent pink tulle that makes up the bodice and the skirt gives an almost angelic look.

Dua Lipa in Versace

It seems as though there isn't a colour missing from Dua Lipa's entire outfit. With a pattern that makes you feel as though you're looking through a kaleidoscope, the dress is somewhat of a trippy optical illusion; your eyes just don't know where to look! The detail of the embellishments on the bodice is so ornate and absolutely bedazzling, while the sheen of the skirt's material gives the refined, glossy look of absolute perfection.

Lucy Boynton in Prada

Looking like somewhat of a fairy princess, Lucy Boynton took a more pastel, sweet approach to the theme as opposed to garish, bold colours. There's such delicacy to her look, with the grey feathers swishing around with every step she takes and the adornment in the bodice glinting when catching the light. This outfit is just absolutely whimsical and stunning, which is why I felt it had to appear on my list of favourites!

Harry Styles in Gucci

Now I'm not a super super fan of Harry Styles, but this pendant earring and chiffon blouse look is something I can totally get on board with. This outfit is just the epitome of grace and class, yet there's something so daring and bold in the choice of blouse; the femininity of it just works to a T, I think.

Shawn Mendes in Saint Laurent

Of course Shawn was going to make it onto this list. While his outfit isn't necessarily in keeping with the theme, and it certainly isn't the most interesting to look at compared to some of the other male ensembles, there's something in the outfit's simplicity that's so beautiful and elegant, and I really am a fan of this gelled hair look going on.

Ryan Murphy in Christian Siriano

Now that is what I call sticking to the dress code. Embellished with beads and pearls, the cape that cascades down to the floor is a work of art in itself, with the headpiece stealing the show. Everything down to the colour scheme is absolute perfection, and I cannot get enough of the matching bow-tie, waistcoat and suit that are in the most beautiful shade of peach and adorned with sequins. Definitely my kind of outfit.
