Style Crush Wednesday: Met Gala Couple Love
Hellurrr…so a few days ago the MET gala held and it was all shades of awesome. The couple love from some of my favorite stylish icons was a chunk of eye candy. I actually was excited waiting for what is considered the prom of the fashion industry. Phew. Oh have you listened to this tune yet? You should, totally cool stuff; Hey Brother by Avicii. You may want to have a bottle of Cocacola as you read *wink*
Now the 69th Met gala, hosted by Anna Wintour, was themed Comme des garcon in honour of the 74 year old designer, Rei Kawakubo. It’s interesting to note that she’s the second living fashion designer, after Yves Saint Laurent in 1983, to be given a solo exhibition at the Met gala. I had so much fun reading up on this though and imagine how excited I was waiting for the avant-garde looks on the red carpet. I won’t say I was disappointed.
I particularly loved the love exuded by some of the couples on the red carpet. This couple, Blake Lively and her hubby give me life in her Versace number. And that icy blue Valentino beauty on Jlo couldn’t have looked any better on anyone else! Love how much the internet couldn’t get enough of the new couple, Selena Gomez and The Weeknd. They really look good together!
I know this was supposed to highlight the beautiful impression the couples left on the red carpet but I’m sorry, I can’t help but spot out some dope singles. Rihanna!!!!!! Oh my days! I’m not crushing because this is an outfit I can rock on any red carpet, (I’m not that bold), but because of the creativity behind this Comme des garcon piece by Rei Kawakubo and the fact that she stuck to the theme oh so well! The Japanese make-up, hair bun, sandals, and poise, gurl, you’re queening as always!
I really loved this simple yet breath-taking Comme des garcon piece on Ellis Ross. I never thought the day would come when I would say Comme des garcon stole the show but it has! They ‘legit’ stole the show! And here I was thinking people will run away from this label as their style is quite ridiculous, unusual and asymmetrical. Phew.
Yes you can say I was happy with this year’s spectrum of fashion statements on the red carpet. We’ll be looking out for the next. Meanwhile I can’t wait to write about a Nigerian fashion event that would speak as much volume across the continent as Met does across the world. AMVCA tries but we want more. I know that day will come soon!
Hope your week is going well so far!
*hugs and kisses*
Live. Love. Laugh. Look. Better
