The Met Gala always brings out the best in fashion and the hottest stars, this year was no exception for the Charles James ‘White Tie & Diamonds’ themed bash, and it looks like some celebs took their inspiration from Disney’s up-coming flick, Maleficent.
Channelling Maleficent’s Gothic glamour was Beyonce who captivated the red carpet outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York. Wearing a custom beaded Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci gown, Beyonce really stood out in this sexy look with its plunging neckline and very revealing back.
As ever Beyonce really excluded the attitude and confidence to pull this exquisite gown off, much like Angelina Jolie in the Maleficent movie, and her look really is pulled together with her statement Lorraine Schwartz jewels, black veil, and her bold burgundy lip.
Only Beyonce could take inspiration from a Disney villain and be one of the best dressed at the gala!!!
There were a number of contenders for Aurora’s fairytale chic crown, there was Blake Lively in a shimmering blush Gucci gown, Suki Waterhouse in a blush ruffle number by Burberry, but for me the fairest of them all had to be footwear designer Tabitha Simmons who looked at one with nature in this floral masterpiece by Dolce & Gabbana
This gown really feels like Aurora, it’s whimsical, ethereal, and gorgeous with all the floral appliqués adorning the bodice and skirt. Simply divine and perfect for a Princess.
Who wins Beyonce or Tabitha?
