Fashion’s most prestigious night has come and gone, and although we’re still trying to collect our thoughts, we’re breaking down the 2019 MET Gala’s biggest moments, right here, right now!
What’s up guys, it’s Emile Ennis Jr. back here on Clevver News, and you know how the saying goes to ‘save the best for last?’ Yeah, no, not today. Celebs SHOWED UP during tonight’s ‘Camp’-themed MET Gala, and I can’t possibly save the best for last when Zendaya actually brought me to tears dressed as THE bell of the ball.
With the help of some unknown fairy godmother and the stroke of a wand, Z’s Cinderella-inspired gown lit up and stole the show. Then again, do we ever expect anything less from this goddess? I’ll wait.
As we take a turn from fairytale to literal nightmare, actor and MET Gala master Ezra Miller donned, like, 12 pairs of eyeballs, complete with a pinstripe suit and I’m almost positive I’ve had nightmares about this same creature coming out from under my bed.
And then there was that time Lady Gaga and her sea urchin eye lashes AND FOUR outfit changes basically won the MET Gala. As the co-host of this year’s event, one of Gaga’s getups resembled that of a giant pink parachute, but it was THIS look that turned all the heads. The Grammy winner stripped down into a bedazzled black bikini and her signature platform heels, along with a wagon that showcased her pink Joanne cowboy hats.
Billy Porter made one of the most memorable grand entrances of the night. Seriously though, you know you’ve made it when you look like an actual trophy while being carried into an event by a squad of six shirtless dudes. EXTRA in all the best ways...
I’d also like to take a second and give a shoutout to Jared Leto, his beautiful head of hair, and his second beautiful head of hair. No I didn’t stutter, and yes you heard that correctly - Jared Leto accessorized his godly MET Gala wardrobe with a replica of his own head. I’m all out of questions and concerns - at this point, I just want to know where I can get my own head cloned.
And finally, there’s always gotta be at least one celeb who steals the show (AKA Twitter), and that goes to Celine Dion who has officially been dubbed the Meme Queen of 2019. The music legend stunned in a beautiful fringe gown, but it was her headpiece that inspired a wave of different items all thanks to the Twittersphere. Behold a dandelion, a pasta noodle rack, Hela of Thor, Yzma from The Emporer’s New Groove, a head scratcher thingy, many other household items… trust me, the list could go on, but we are LIVING.
