20. Battle of the Billowing Blue Look

18. Battle of the Colorful Jewels
Both Gwen Stefani and Bella Hadid were dressed by Moschino for this year’s Met Gala. It’s clear the designer had a common aesthetic in mind for the event based on the colorful jewels incorporated in both Stefani and Hadid’s looks. While Stefani opted for a white bejeweled mini dress paired with a fluffy overcoat, Hadid opted for a black look with cutouts and layered jewel bracelets up her sleeves. Which look do you prefer?
17. Battle of the Pink Satin Look

15. Battle of the Bow
There’s no better place than the Met Gala to opt for an oversized bow, and we saw many of them on the Met Gala red carpet!

13. Battle of the Silver Beading
Marchesa lead designer Georgina Chapman and Crazy Rich Asians star Constance Wu stepped out onto the Met Gala red carpet wearing shockingly similar dresses, but for one major reason, they were both custom Marchesa creations! While Chapman’s featured a tiered skirt and subtle beading, Wu’s look was slightly more dramatic with heavier beading and whimsical sheer sleeves. Which beaded Marchesa gown do you prefer?

Her dress was designed by Zac Posen and featured 3D printed palm fronds on the collar. Who wore purple better, Dakota or Katie?
11. Battle of the Long Trains
Lady Gaga and Cardi B both love the shock factor when they step out onto the red carpet, so we had big expectations for them at this year’s Met Gala. Luckily, neither disappointed. Lady Gaga stepped out completing four outfit changes, with her first fuschia look being quite notable due to its long train. Cardi B stepped out with a dramatic look of her own, in a deep ruby red color, which featured a headpiece, dramatic sleeves, and a full billowing skirt. Who pulled off the long train better, Gaga or Cardi?
10. Battle of the Yellow Dress

Her look was designed by Atelier Versace and featured 3D magenta floral embellishment throughout. Which yellow dress do you prefer — Camilla or Serena’s?
9. Battle of the Tulle Dress
Tulle is the perfect dramatic trend to wear for the Met Gala, and clearly, both Lana Condor and Emma Roberts understand that! The first time Met Gala attendee Condor opted for a heavy pale pink look designed by Giambattista Valli that featured a miniskirt with a dramatic train and sleeves. Emma Roberts stepped out the same evening wearing a dramatic tulle look of her own in a deeper shade of pink. Her look was also designed by Giambattista Valli and featured bold tiered ruffles trailing the entire way down the skirt. Who wore tulle better — Lana or Emma?
8. Battle of the Sleek Pink Dress
Going to the Met Gala doesn’t always have to be overly dramatic, according to Gisele Bundchen and Hailey Bieber! Both ladies opted for sleek pink gowns, but the question is, who pulled the look off better? While Gisele opted for a pleated lilac-tinted dress with fluttery sleeves, Hailey opted for a sleek soft pink look with a swooping low back and a sweet velvet bow in her hair.
