Spray Painted Queens: Katy Perry and Madonna--both in Moschino by Jeremy Scott, at the 2015 Met Gala
Last night at the 2015 Met Gala, two Music Divas wore Moschino: Madonna and Katy Perry. One was Custom and the other, from the Moschino Fall 2015 runway show. Let's begin with Madonna...
Beyonce in Givenchy Custom Couture Gown by Riccardo Tisci
Boy! We saw this trend of SHEER! SHEER! SHEER! starting at the Oscar After-Parties earlier this year....but the DIVAS really brought this trend in full force to the Red Carpet at the Met Gala tonight!! Someone who went ALL OUT with this trend was Beyonce. We all knew that she was going to BRING IT at the Met Gala and well, she did not disappoint in this Custom Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci gown featuring a silk tulle/netting foundation with strategically placed jeweled crystals hand sewn throughout the gown. It was a pretty FEARLESS look for Miss Beyonce and yes, if anyone is going to pull it off, it would be her.
Here are more pics:

SHUT IT DOWN Rihanna Style--Rihanna walked the 2015 Met Gala red carpet wearing this canary yellow coat of silk satin, fur and applique sequins created and designed by Chinese Couturier Guo Pei. The coat was from the A Thousand And Two Arabian Nights' Guo Pei Collection from 2010...

Met Fab? Or,
Oh No She Didn't!
Kim Kardashian in Roberto Cavalli
Kim Kardashian wore a nude and white sequined and feathered custom-made creation from Roberto Cavalli. Roberto Cavalli had nothing to do with this and in fact it was designed by Peter Dundas, the houses newly-minted Creative Director...
Jennifer Lopez in Atelier Versace
Jennifer Lopez was very on-trend with the Transparency Gown vibe--featured in this Asiana-inspired gown she wore at the 2015 Met Gala red carpet from Atelier Versace.
BAM! That's what you got! Oh Miss JLo. Three words: At-a-Girl. That look of hers is like "Huuuuuney, I am GIVING YOU!!!".
Fan Bingbing in Christopher Bu--Now this is how you GIVE it!!! At the Met Gala 2015. Actress--and Fashion Diva--Fan Bingbing is always known to give 110% when it comes to the red carpet, and tonight's Met Gala was no exception. She wore a gold and copper sequined gown with a multicolored coat. I know the theme was "Asiana-inspired Diva" (or that's what I deem it to be!), but Bingbing is somehow vibing a bit of Nefertiti and Cleopatra with this AMAAAZING coat.
Sarah Jessica Parker in H & M and Philip Treacy--How do I say this politely? Ummm, no. Now, let me begin: I love me some SJP and I know that she has become known for her fab/over the top Philip Treacy headdresses at the Met Galas but...I do like this headdress style, I'm just not a fan of this H & M one shoulder gown. The dress seems like something a fashion school student would have created. No offense to the fashion school student; more of diss on the H & M design team. Oh, and should I even discuss the ripply seams??? Maybe not.
Lady Gaga in Balenciaga designed by Alexander Wang
Tonight was the 2015 Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala, a fundraiser to benefit the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. This year's exhibit is titled "China: Through The Looking Glass". The Met's site explains that the exhibition "explore the impact of Chinese aesthetics on Western fashion, and how China has fueled the fashionable imagination for centuries. High fashion will be juxtaposed with Chinese costumes, paintings, porcelains, and other art, including films, to reveal enchanting reflections of Chinese imagery". It is interesting that a lot of the fashions on display will be from Western designers and how they were "inspired" by Chinoiserie.
In terms of the Gala, there are lots of A-list celebs and fashion designers invited and then there are the people who have to pay $25,000 for a ticket. The celebs and designers get in for free via Miss Anna Wintour. Lucky them. Moving on...
Now, time for tonight's Red Carpet and the Who Wore What? Let's begin with the one-and-only Lady Gaga...
