Met Gala 2017 | The Belles of the Ball

Befitting Style Met Gala 2017 Favorites Belle of the Ball

The Met Gala is the most prestige event in fashion. It’s a time for stars to get together for fundraising, (and looking good while doing it). Last night’s focus was on Rei Kawakubo, creator of Commes des Garçons.  Known for his out of the norm creations of pieces that are more so like art pieces and less wearable for day to day, I expected Commes des Garçons to be quite a challenge for many. As the Met Gala was approaching, I was excited to see how the attendees would honor his work through style. I picked my faves according to how well the theme was incorporated into the looks while keeping it chic. Because this is the Costume Institute Gala, I looked forward to drama of the attire.

An easy way to stick to the theme is by rocking the honoree’s design and Rihanna did just that. Stunning in a Fall 2016 Commes des Garçons attire decked out in florals, paired with strappy heels, Rihanna went straight to the source for this look.

  1. Fund raising is always for a good cause. These dresses are over the top beautiful, of course your average person could never afford or have anywhere to wear a work of art like these dresses.

    1. I believe one can always improvise according to their budget.

  2. Those are all definitely statement dresses! Very pretty. I think my favorites are Naomi Campbell and Blake Lively, probably because they are more classic and not as over the top.

    1. The thing is people dressed over the top to honor Rei Kawakubo’s over the top designs! It’s definitely not for the average person but judging it according to the honoree’s artistry brings a bit more understanding to why they are dressed this way.

  3. Those are some amazing looking dresses. I can’t believe how out there some of those outfits get. It’s so much fun!

    1. Yess! Must be so much fun to play dress up.

  4. I love seeing the dresses from the MET Gala. My favorite was Ashley Graham, but they were all beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Ashley looked amaze!!

  5. Wow. Some of those are straight up crazy looking to me. Of course, my wife often tells me that I can’t wear flannel for EVERYTHING. LOL

    1. LOLLL definitely can’t.

  6. Those dresses are very interesting! I always find it fun to see what people pick out to where to fundraisers and red carpet ordeals. Some look absolutely gorgeous while other ones look like they just threw it together. It’s fun to see what’s out there.

  7. Love your picks! These gowns are fabulous!

  8. I always love Blake Lively!!!!

    1. I haven’t seen her in a bad look since!

  9. Joleene Moody

    The only one I love is the one Tracee Ellis Ross is wearing. I’m a simpleton. 🙂 But it’s classy. The rest are too much for me!

    1. Funny you say that because I think Tracee’s is definitely over the top.

  10. I love seeing all the pictures. So many dresses that only them can wear because no one else would date to go in public with them.

    1. LOLLL! Some of them are easy to wear in public (Blake Lively, Halle Berry, Zendaya).

  11. So many beautiful outfits!! I really loved Miranda Kerr’s !

    1. Ohhh I don’t think I saw hers!

  12. Kaylee

    I think Blake Lively’s gown was my favorite but I also loved Rihanna’s outfit, she can make anything look great!

    1. I like Rihanna’s because it went with the theme precisely.

  13. Mmmmk Blake always!

    I am so not a fan of the Hadid sisters or Kardashains. Think I’m the only one.

    1. You’re not the only one. I didn’t really like their looks. Blake slayed. LOL

  14. Talk about statement dresses, I love the fashion at the Met Gala. Diddy just lying on the stairs lol. Of your choices, I prefer Zendaya, it’s a beautiful piece.

    1. of course Diddy had to make a statement! LOLL! Zendaya was absolutely stunning!!!

  15. I admire all the participants in the gala for making so much effort to out do each other. I must give it to Rihanna, she rock it, dress to code according to the theme of the night.

  16. I was just looking at all the dresses from the Met Gala. I loved Rhianna’s dress. It looks like a floral sculpture.

  17. Zendaya and Tracee Ellis Ross were stunning and of course Rih kept up her usual slayage but can we acknowledge that Halle Berry is 50! 50! She looks amazing!

    1. 50!!!!! & looks like she has the body of a 29 year old. Absolutely gorg!

  18. Those styles are out of sight! Love them. Of course rather over the top and not something I would ever be able to wear but I do love the art of fashion!

    1. Yes this was all definitely for the art of fashion!

  19. Alexandra

    I guess you’re gonna love or hate the art dresses. I don’t love them. Rihanna’s “dress” is a hot mess someone called art. Zendaya’s dress, on the other hand, is gorgeous – bold, yet classy.

  20. Yeu Doi

    All the gowns are so beautiful and feminine, it’s so hard to choose one. Halle berry’s dress looks amazing!

  21. Oh my goodness! That would have been so fun to attend! I love stuff like this!

  22. I just love celebrity fashion, especially at the Met Ball. I think Blake Lively is my favorite…love the pop of blue on her dress…and that she’s a mama!

    1. Yesssss and her body looks amazing as a new mom!

  23. The dresses and gowns are fascinating. It must have been so fun watching a celebrity fashion show.

    1. LOL yes the’re gorg

  24. I always find red carpets interesting. They have such ornate and impractical dresses. Although some of them are certainly very beautiful. I don’t think any here stood out that I loved. Although I did find the trenchcoat type dress interesting.

    1. The trencoat dress is super hot!! Ralph Lauren did a phenomenal job!

  25. Rebecca Swenor

    This event did indeed is an amazing event. These are all interesting looks indeed. I liked Ashley Graham in the H&M Custom dress. Thanks for sharing these awesome dresses.

    1. Thanks for stopping by. Glad you like it.

  26. Amber

    Ohh wow! Those are some unique outfits! Lol

  27. I am so out of the loop when it comes to fashion. I know for this kind of event people take it above and beyond but I just couldn’t imagine wearing these dresses.

    1. Theyre not for many to wear so I totally understand.

  28. Michelle Waller

    Those dresses all look amazing. I especially love Blake Livelys dress. It is gorgeous.

    1. Blake is always gorg!!

  29. As soon as this was over I went searching for the gowns. Some of them were okay but others like the ones you’ve posted were better than ok.

    1. Yes girl! I look forward to checking out the gowns every year.

  30. These gowns are definitely beautiful and creative. I love the Dole and Gabanna gown that Zendaya wore, very dramatic.

  31. uprunforlife

    Those gowns are so pretty. I really like the dress that Priyanka Chopra wore by Ralph Lauren. The designers are very creative.

    1. Super duper creative!

  32. Beeb Ashcroft

    Rihanna and Halle had some of the most eye-catching. For me anyways! Not that I would wear that style but their dresses were different!

    1. Yesss very different!

  33. These dresses are incredible. I wish I could pull them off.

    1. LOL no worries they’re not for everyday… but I’m sure you can pull at least one of them off.

  34. E H

    I absolutely love all of these looks! I don’t know which one to pick, they are almost perfect! I think I like the red ribbon outfit the most – quite an idea!

    1. The red ribbon was super fab!

  35. Victoria Heckstall

    All outfits are so fabulous and elegant. I love it so much! It looks very noticeable.

  36. They were all so good! I really liked Halle, Rihanna and LaLa! Fabulous!

    1. OMG I saw Lala’s look the day after I posted this and I wish I included it.

  37. Rhi and Rita were my absolute favorite. Diddy plays to much, laying on those steps.

    1. Diddy plays wayyyyy tooo much! LOLL!

  38. I’m not sure how anyone could top Blake. SEriously every single year. I don’t know how she does it! Rihanna was a close second though!
