Heads were turned and bodies exposed last night at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 2016 Met Gala. There was a strong theme of whites, cut-outs, and metallics but also some pleasant forays into color and decoration. We’ve got both ends of the spectrum covered in our recreated ‘Manus x Machina’ looks below.
Black is generally safe. But adding some upper-thigh accessories? That’s playing it ‘bad girl.’ We toned down the fluff for a sleeker fit with Kheops One Shoulder Slit gown, knee high boots, and some silver jewelry.
Este, Danielle, and Alana Haim
Ladies in lace can never go wrong – especially on the three Haim sisters. These rockers struck a feminine pose in variations of black and white. You and your sisters (or friends) can recreate the look in Zarankova’s Waltz in Black and White collection with a gold hair crown and two tones pumps.
Ballgowns have us feeling like a Princess but when real royalty knocks us dead in light-hearted yellow frills we can’t help but take notice. Recreate Charlotte’s look with Zarankova’s Euphoria dress, floral pumps and a neutral bag.
Girls got skills and some great side stomach in a long, cut-out Peter Pilotto dress. We duplicated the pattern and the inclination to show some skin in this Terry Jolo Brand Medusa-inspired Zipper dress paired with gold pumps and an ear cuff.
We’re a huge fan of Karlie, especially in the white cut out dress by Brandon Maxwell. She and the designer actually pulled out the scissors to turn this maxi into a mini for the party May 2nd. Don’t worry Karlie! We’ve got you covered in this Raimana Cowan Cutout dress with metallic bag and studded pumps!
Which looks the winner? Want to get your gown in the meantime?
