A Look Back at 12 Jaw Dropping Fashion Moments Last Year’s Met Gala

With the Met Gala quickly approaching, it’s time to take a walk down memory lane and prep ourselves for our favorite Monday. Last year’s theme was “Fashion in the Age of Technology” the red (white and pink) carpet saw some serious glam. There were some clear themes; stars like Kate Hudson and Zoe Kravitz wearing structured dresses, Brie Larson and Lupita Nyong’o in sequins, and Elle Fanning and Karlie Kloss in sleek, slim gowns.

 

This year’s honoree is the Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons, and the show, named “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,” will showcase 150 of her womenswear creations dating from the early 1980s.

 

So while we daydream about what Rihanna will wear, let’s take a look back at our favorite looks from last year.
