Starry Starry Night – Have You “MET” Our Favourites Yet?

It’s that never-failing night of the year; we’re talking about that gushing-gown, NYC downtown, celebrity-studded kind of night – that glistening, gorgeous night when the stars descend from the skies in a sensational show of avant-garde fashion.

Bold and anything but basic, they grace the red carpet and devour the limelight – each dressed by their favourite design house like a decadent dream.

Backed by a great cause since the mid 90’s, the MET gala in New York City is a cocktail of philanthropic fundraising and staggering style. Even the greatest of personalities often wait a lifetime to score a spot at the gala – popularly regarded as the Oscars of the East.

Here are some of the looks from the MET Gala we just can’t get enough of —

Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds

When are poised and ever-so-perfect power couple Blake & Ryan ever NOT on their A-game? From serious relationship goals to flawless fashion goals – they give us all goosebumps and HOW. Ryan was all compliments for his couture queen Blake as her plunging gold gown swept the crowd. Blue feather detailing fluttering with gold fringes made it a sight to see as it cascaded down the carpet.

Our Stylease secret: Break the monotony of an all-over-sequin dress with contrast accessories or unique detailing to stand out!

Selena Gomez:

With sleek hair & a seraphic smile, Selena Gomez strutted into the gala looking nothing less than a sassy summer dream. We can tell the Disney starlet’s fetish for lace and gentle detailing from her creme gown by Coach & metal studded choker. As if her sweetheart – The Weeknd was not enough arm candy, her other arm had a coach bag that matched one of her ‘Love Yourself’ tattoos. As far as we’re concerned, she definitely got this fling with fashion right.

Our Stylease secret: Dress to the season as every season tells a story. Spring/Summer is all about hues – be careful what you choose!

Cara Delevingne:

With sprayed on hair, a futuristic flair & drop dead gorgeous confidence – Carla Delevingne embraced her radical streak as she mesmerised the fashion fraternity with her metallic avatar – satiating all our appetites with some serious shimmer. In sculpted silver from head to toe, Carla unleashed her star power with help from Chanel and makeup artist Romy Soleimani.

We’re all for strong some who take chances – and she definitely won at this one!

Our Stylease Secret: Carry your style with utmost confidence. Carla had a shaved head for her latest film role and didn’t find the need to hide it – we love that!

Priyanka Chopra:

While Twitter was trolling all day with varied feedback on PC’s MET gala appearance – we can’t help but be loyal to our homegrown Hollywood ice princess. Refined yet risky, Priyanka teased the usual trench to showcase the world’s longest coat dress. This is her time to shine and we’re sure she set a statement for a tonne of her fans by disguising her fearless flamboyance in this Ralph Lauren piece.

Our Stylease secret: You better leave a trail no matter where you go! Be fashionable while you’re at it.


Boy, aren’t we grateful to Zendaya for bringing a new rush of colour to the MET palette this year! Looking like every designer’s muse in a mirage of bright hues and silhouettes that send us on a flight of fantasy – she carried this Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda gown with an aura of elegance. Her statement voluminous afro and bold orange lipstick brought a rush of glamour to the red carpet which otherwise saw a tonne of monotone this year.

We’re happy to have Zendaya around to remind us to lap up the lust-worthy shades of our favourite season!

Our Stylease Secret: Opt for an outfit which is the perfect blend of tight-fitted and flowy for a versatile look.

 Kendall Jenner:

Surprising the crowd and showing some skin has always been a classic Jenner signature. Beaming with confidence in a naked cut-out boudoir La Perla dress – Kendall proved once again that she’ll always be true to her own sense of style. The sheer gown was carefully crafted with over 85,000 crystals – just apt for an evening on the global stage. Her high cheek bones and perfect paparazzi poses have us all over her this time.

Our Stylease secret: Have a signature style that you can be identified by. Then seal it with a bold lip colour to lift your whole look!

Thank goodness for nights like the MET which take us into the whimsical world of gorgeous fashion goals with an underlying cause.
