The MET Gala

If you are a fan of fashion as I am, you were probably waiting with baited breath as the photos and red carpet looks from the MET gala were rolled out last week.  I was so excited to see who was wearing what and the looks came together.  From the makeup to the fashion to the drama from the looks that was created it was a great night for fashion and an even greater night for fashion fans.

The Met Ball or the Met gala is a fundraising event where designers, celebrities and models come out to show the world their fashion choices and fabulosity.  The event has been ongoing since 1946 and has become the fashion event of the year.  The event is always held on the first Monday in May at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  The theme for this year was ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” introducing the newest exhibition to the museum curated by Andrew Bolton. The fashions for this year were right on point with this theme.   The hosts for this years gala were Rihanna, Amal Clooney, Donatella Versace, Anna Wintour, and Stephen and Christina Schwarzman.

I am going to show my picks for the following categories:  Black, Gold, Men of Met and Legs for days, Aging Gracefully and I will close with my favorite look of the night.  (Images from vogue.com)

Aging Gracefully

These women are aging gracefully.  Well let me be specific, J. Lo never ages at all.  Kris Jenner is always classy so is Sarah Jessica Parker.  Cindy Crawford is ageless.  Linda Carter will always be Wonder Woman to me and she looks great as does Brooke Shields.

My Favorite Look of the Evening

Met 2018-51-kendall

Kendall Jenner was simply stunning.  I loved everything about this top to toe white.  Complimented by the sleek hair, diamond earrings and gloves.  It was just the right amount of everything.  Simple yet bold and classic.  Hands down my favorite look of the evening.

Be Blessed, Be Fabulous!
