on

Awards season is the time when we enjoy the daring and glamorous styles of celebrities, but nothing really tops the Met Gala, when it comes to making a fashion statement.

Models, singers, actors and celebrities come to NYC for this astounding fashion bash that is held every spring. The Gala is a fashion lover’s dream, and every year, guests plan their couture gowns based on the unique theme of the exhibition.

The Met Gala isn’t only about making fashion statements and throwing a killer party, but to top that, fundraising is a plus! The entry to the gala comes at a hefty price, and is the main source for funding the Costume Institute’s exhibitions, acquisitions and capital improvements.

This year’s Gala took place yesterday with the theme of “Camp: Notes on Fashion“, and here are the must-see looks of the event!

1- Lady Gaga

Talk about making an entrance! Who else would turn heads, if not the queen of daring and fun fashion. And because one outfit is clearly not enough, Lady Gaga wore four different looks, each one making a bold statement!

2- The Kardashians

While both Kourtney and Khloe were noticeably absent from the event, Kim, Kris, Kylie and Kendall all walked the pink carpet of New York’s Metropolitan Museum in their most dashing ensembles.

Kim Kardashian wore a Manfred Thierry Mugler dress – the designer’s first creation for the brand in 20 years.

“Getting out of the Pacific straight to the #MetGalared carpet to shine like the brightest star! Iconic “Wet Look” is #BeyondCouture!” the designer wrote on his Instagram.

As for Kylie and Kendall Jenner, they both rocked their Versace gowns!

3- Celine Dion

Dion wore a gown inspired from the glitzy costumes of the Ziegfeld Follies. which is constructed from 18 panels, hand-beaded by 52 master embroiderers over a total of 3,000 hours and weighs over 22 pounds!

4- Ciara

While her green embellished gown stood out, what actually turned heads at the Gala was her disco-era hair!

5- Emily Ratajkowski

Definitely one of the best and daring looks, the model wore a bold interpretation of a Bob Mackie dress, with a stunning winged headpiece.

6- Saoirse Ronan

Another outstanding look by Gucci, the brand that was a sponsor the event, the fire-breathing dress certainly caught the eyes of many at the Gala.

Throughout the beginning of the Coronavirus, many industries had suffered greatly. For instance, the Tourism industry had suffered tremendously due to the halting of flights.

Another industry that has faced severe loss is the Fashion Industry due to staff layoffs, production halt, and closed stores. Many people have stopped purchasing clothes altogether because of the tight budget they have set from themselves.

Which is why, in critical times like these, people are trying to give as much as they can and offer extensive resources to help out the people that are in deep need as well as employees.

Believe it or not, Ralph Lauren has pitched in by donating $10 million for COVID-19 relief. It was a very noble move for him to be donating such a large amount to help out his people. So far, this donation has been the largest among American Fashion brands.

Other fashion leaders have been contributing in other ways such as creating masks, hand sanitizers, and much more. For instance, Egyptian local fashion king Kojak has created his own line of masks to donate to Al Abassiya hospital.

Other known brands such as Prada, Brandon Maxwell,Estee Lauder, and much more have joined together to help find contributions for this pandemic outbreak which is very kind and genuine of them to be doing so.

The donations that have been made by Ralph will go to the World Health Organization’s Solidarity Response fund. In return, WHO will be offering financial aid to the Ralph Lauren Employees due to the rough circumstances if their situation.

Another contribution will go to the company’s very own fund, Pink Pony, a cancer fund to support cancer institutions whom are extremely vulnerable at this time of the pandemic.

Aside from that, Ralph Lauren is also currently working on assessing the technical requirements for isolation gowns and medical masks to help protect being transmitted with the COVID-19, in hopes of supporting people globally.

In the past weeks and months, that spirit has never wavered,” Lauren said in a statement. “We believe that no matter who you are or where you are from, we are all connected.
