If there was ever a red carpet to take a risk — it’s the MET Gala, and at last night’s soiree in New York City, stars certainly let their inhibitions fly.
While many celebrities like Blake Lively, Jennifer Lopez, and Selena Gomez turned heads in pretty gowns — it was the ones who decided to push the fashion bounds who really had us doing a double take.
With this year’s theme paying homage to innovative Comme De Garçons founder Rei Kawakubo, celebs including Katy Rihanna and Helen Lasichanh hit the red carpet in awesomely outlandish vintage ensembles created by the legendary designer. Meanwhile, others like Katy Perry, arrived in gowns clearly inspired by Kawakubo’s work. Some stars, however, decided to ditch the theme all together — but that doesn’t mean they played it safe (we’re looking at you, Priyanka Chopra!).
