On Monday, May 2, the biggest stars and icons in the entertainment industry came together for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Insitiute Gala 2016 in NYC. This year’s theme was Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, and as always, many of the stars went above and beyond to work their outfits into this unique theme. There was a lot of metallic, shiny and knight in shining armor looks going around as well as some gorgeous gowns for the prestigious invitation only event, and when a ticket costs $30,000 a person, money is of no object for fashion. While some looks didn’t go over as well as some celebrities hoped, these seven stars absolutely nailed it. Check out the seven best dressed at this year’s Met Gala!
7. Blake Lively
Blake Lively strayed away from the “futuristic” styles most commonly seen on the red carpet for the night, but the stunning actress still looked amazing. Lively hid her growing baby bump in a light pink silk Burberry gown which featured a long embellished train with red floral accents. Along with a high slit and long Lorraine Schwartz coral and diamond earrings, she looked especially glamorous.
