BLUECARPET. LIVE.            

Dress code? Avant-Grande

Now, let us not dismiss the beauty seen at the MET GALA carpet 2017! The Monday being the first day of  May was a day where you were guaranteed to see the biggest celebrities, designers, models and VIP guests, all held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art! The theme was to celebrate the Costume Institute’s new exhibition “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between.”

Best believe each one of those guests who attended the MET GALA 2017 were sure to turn heads! They entered, posed, smiled and in their element, clothed in outrageous, experimental yet impeccable clothing. The outfits worn were all so detailed and unique that in order to narrow the list on who rocked it best would be definitely hard!

So here we have presented you with looks from this years’ MET GALA Blue carpet live:

Look: Rihanna stepped out wearing an outstanding capturing and bright piece from the Comme des Garçons autumn/winter 2016 show, double-faced bonded laser-cut satin!
