Last night we could attend to the biggest night of the year for the fashion industry: the Met Gala.
The theme of this year was ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’, so we knew beforehand that it was going to be a night to be remembered. Fashion designers and celebrities sometimes spend weeks or even months designing and preparing their creations for the red carpet of this famous night, and having that theme in mind, we knew that the looks were going to be resounding.
There were sure some Lady Gaga moments, though they were sadly not starred by herself since she didn’t attend, like the Pope inspired dress and headpiece that Rihanna wore, but for me there were also some seriously stylish and beautiful looks that deserved some attention.
Some of my favorite designers worked in the dresses that paraded the red carpet last night and I’m here to share with you the most iconic looks of the night!
Though there were some that practically broke the internet as they made their appearance, there were also that, leaving the hype aside, spoke loudly of the true love for fashion. Let’s see them.
Top Looks Met Gala 2018: Heavenly Bodies
Blake Lively in Versace
Emily Ratajkowski in Marc Jacobs
Amber Heard in Carolina Herrera

Gigi Hadid in Versace
And that’s all for now!
Obviously, since Donatella was one of the hosts, Versace was a house that shone brightly all through the night and that dressed a high number of the attendants. And they did that masterfully!
Some of the most resonated looks didn’t quite hit the mark for me, but others, like this last one from Versace for Gigi Hadid, the one from Dior that Cara Delevigne wore, or the Joan of Arc inspired design from Versace that Zendaya rocked, were for me truly beautiful and spoke really highly of the houses that confectionated them.
Also a great respect for Kim Kardashian for choosing a design of Gianni Versace!

I hope you have time to take a look at the Met Gala 2018 designs and make your own selection of your favorite looks.
Lots of love, and hoping to see you around soon!
