Wedding Dress Inspiration From The Met Gala

Why Get Wedding Dress Inspiration From The Met Gala?

I love everything about The Met Gala. I’ve been manifesting a lot of things lately, and one that I’m absolutely sure will find its way on to my manifesting list in due course is to ‘attend the Met Gala, just one time’. I am a girl obsessed! And I think there are probably several reasons at play here as to why I fangirl the shit out of everything to do with it come the First Monday in May, which is also the title of a killer documentary about the Met Gala - which I’ve seen about 987654 times. There’s a really hilarious scene in it where the ladies at Vogue, who run the Met Ball, are discussing the seating plan and you find out which celebrities Anna Wintour thinks are nobodies. *Cackles*.

I think it’s simply every event planner’s dream occasion to organise, because a) it has a clear theme. It’s never the same theme either, but there always is one and everyone puts the effort in. (I mean you have to really, it’s the Met Ball. But I have thrown way too many themed parties to know that people don’t like ‘dressing up’ in normal circumstances). B) it’s for a fantastic cause - the money raised at The Met Gala fundraises for The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. For those of you not familiar with The Met, it’s the building with the steps where the girls from Gossip Girl sit. C) it’s well attended by an A-list crowd, everyone from the likes of George and Amal Clooney to Kim and Kanye are there strutting their stuff on that red carpet.

An event like this really is #Goals of the event planning world. But what this occasion inspires doesn’t just stop and start with the world of parties. Oh no, this baby influences the fashion industry as well as the wedding industry. Yep, the outfits you see on the red carpet can inspire wedding dress designs, and get-up for the groom. So I thought we could take a look at the fashions from this years Met Ball and I’ll suggest some wedding gear that you could opt for if you’re wanting a similar look.

This year’s theme was Comme des Garçons and has been dubbed as the trickiest theme ever to pull off, as celebrities has to pay homage to the cult Japanese avant-gardist designer Rei Kawakubo whilst still making all the best-dressed lists. It was about pushing the limits of fashion at this year’s event, and as usual some people nailed it and some people looked like they’d forgotten to put some clothes on, but I digress. Let's just look at some clothes!
