Met Gala 2018 Theme: Blake Lively And Priyanka Chopra Led The Best Dressed

Met Gala 2018 Theme: Blake Lively And Priyanka Chopra Led The Best Dressed

Blake Lively could not have looked more regal on the Met Galared carpet in a gold bodiced and maroon brocade gown. The addition of a spiked headband resembling a golden halo answered the theme of the night. ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’.

Lively’s Versace gown was a labour of love: it took 600 hours to embroider the bodice alone and she wasn’t the only one wearing a handiwork-intensive design. Priyanka Chopra’s Ralph Lauren creation was completely crafted by hand, with Swarovski crystals, meticulous beadwork, and over 250 hours of embroidery.

This year’s exhibition spans centuries of Vatican history, and designer and celebrity pairings attempted to bring this to life at the opening gala on Monday 7 May.
