The Best and The Worst of The Met Gala 2017

The first Monday in May, my favourite event of the year. The Met Gala is absolutely iconic. Celebrities come from all over to strut their stuff and raise funds for the Costume Institute. Formally known as the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute benefit this black-tie event is the fashion party of the year.

Having massive FOMO from our offices in Auckland, I’ve been trawling through the internet for to just get a bit of a taste of the glamour and style. There’s some incredibly stunning outfits walking the red carpet today but equally there are some horror ensembles. Check out our top picks for best and worst of this years Met Gala fashion.

Best Dressed



Riri looked absolutely fabulous this year in Comme des Garçons! Generally I’m not a fan of over the top looks but this is just breathtaking.

Dakota Johnson

Looking like a gothic goddess in Gucci, Dakota definitely was one of the show stoppers this evening.

Love or Hate this look? #DakotaJohnson wearing #Gucci ? #metgala #metgala2017

Lily Collins

Probably my favourite look of the night. Lily was the ultimate rock princess in this gown – really living up to that legendary rock last name.

Now THIS is how you work a #MetGala theme. ? #LilyCollins looking beautiful as always! ?

Katy Perry

Katy Perry undoubtedly rocked this Margiela ensemble, no surprises when she was one of this year’s hosts!

Worst Dressed



This was not a win for Madonna unfortunately. The material girl really needs to up her game. Camo is not something to wear on the red carpet, and nor is it acceptable to drag along your army net…

Jaden Smith

Who let Jaden Smith out of the house holding his dreads?? Also can someone please tell me why he’s wearing a grill?! The Louis Vuitton suit is lovely but really there’s just so much wrong with this.

Bella Hadid

Bella, Bella, Bella. We had such high hopes for our gorgeous cover girl and were sadly disappointed. I know it must be stressful seeing your ex with his new gf at events but that doesn’t excuse this kind of attire.

Amy Schumer

Is that a cape atop a plastic bag? I’m sorry Amy, I love you, but this outfit just does you no favours.

Do you agree with our list? Do you think we left someone off who should’ve definitely been a ‘best’ or a ‘worst’? Let us know in the Facebook comments!
