At the Met Gala on Monday night, the theme, “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,” called for an avant-garde style of dressing.
While some stars stuck to more conventional red-carpet gowns, others chose to take major fashion risks. Some wore Comme des Garçons looks, while others interpreted the theme in their own way, wearing items by other designers.
Tracee Ellis Ross, Caroline Kennedy, Rihanna and Helen Lasichanh all wore Comme des Garçons designs, featuring wild prints and colors as well as interesting structures.
Others went a different route. Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid showed off lots of skin, and Cara Delevingne matched her hair to her silver Chanel suit and silver Christian Louboutin pumps.
Katy Perry certainly looked unconventional in her Maison Margiela Artisanal red dress, coat, boots and headpiece.
Lily Aldridge also took a major risk by pairing a white cut-out gown with Balenciaga’s red thigh-high sockboots and a pink face covering — she was nearly unrecognizable, but it certainly fit the bill for the evening.
Solange Knowles took the puffer coat to the next level in her Thom Browne black puffy coat dress featuring a long train.
