Love Lou Lou xox

It’s everyone’s favourite fashion event, The Met Gala, where there’s no place for conservatism and the more feathers the better. This year’s event celebrated Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons, and as always it’s given us the exquisite and the confusing, but always interesting. We saw unexpected silhouettes, trains for days, colour galore, and the most outrageous of hair styles. It hasn’t been an easy task but we’ve narrowed down our top picks from this year’s Met Gala – enjoy.

Liu Wen, Chinese Supermodel, wearing Comme des Garcons.

Who knew we’d be seeing denim back on the red carpet outside of the 90s? Surprisingly it is back, and even more surprisingly we don’t hate it. Wearing the designer of the night, Comme des Garcons, Liu Wen looks gorgeous and somehow manages to make denim look elegant. With sleek, pulled back hair, she’s got clean, natural makeup and a bright, bold, red lip. Combine this with a simple eyeliner and mascara, the dress and lip colour are the clear focal point of this look and we think it’s perfect.

We love a good power suit and this could possibly be our favourite ever. French model and actress, Aymeline Valade, looks stunning in this Marni blue suit with chain detailing. The colour is incredible and the pop of shine from the chains add an exciting element. Juxtaposed with a bright red lip, the glorious blue stands out even more and complements her gorgeous blue eyes.

Ri Ri can do know wrong. No matter how outrageous the outfit, Rhianna never looks out of place. Mixing architectural structure with soft floral patterns and echoing the colours in her outfit with strong pink eyeshadow and a deep red lip. Her eyeshadow picks up the pink tones in the dress and the plumb red lip picks up the plumb in the dress. And apparently her shoes took an hour to get into!

How could we not love Cara Delevingne with a painted silver head? It’s our second favourite power suit of the night, this time with a straight leg, bold belt and plunging neckline, it’s the sexist futuristic look we’ve seen in a long time. On top of a sexy sparkling suit, Cara has painted her shaved head silver and embossed it with diamonds (surely they’re real?!). This look could have ended up being Tin Man/robot, but in true Cara style she’s more alluring than aluminium.

If I could I’d have an entire list of my favourite full bodied skirts from the Met Gala (and every other event) I would, but I’m slowly coming to terms with the fact that not everyone loves big skirt as much as I do. So I’ve carefully selected one that I couldn’t go past. Janelle Monae looks stunning white ruffled skirt with black feathers leading up her neck to frame her face and create the ultimate sense of drama. Her hair is a sleek throwback to the thirties with a bold rep lip continuing the drama.

Lily Rose Depp wearing bright pink Chanel.

If it’s not a full bodied skirt than my next favourite look has to be anything channelling the 80s. This rich shade of pink instantly takes me back to the florescent colours of the 80s but with some added femininity in the camellias and climbing vine. Paired with simple haitr, a dark eyem and a soft pink lip. she’s found the perfect balance between girly femininity and pink power.

Zendya wearing Dolce & Gabbana.

Last, but by no means least, (and my personal favourite) is Zendaya in a parrot print Dolce & Gabbana dress. Zendaya is a guide to how someone can change their look solely through hair and makeup. She’s ever changing but always gorgeous. The go to hair style for an extravagant ball gown is generally a more subtle up-do, but as always Zendaya has mixed it up and rocked a bold big do. Her lipstick choice echoes the gorgeous tones of orange in the dress and is paired with a more natural eye. She’s taken a classic silhouette in as bold print and paired it with extravagant hair resulting in a subtle but Avant Garde look. And my favourite look of the night.
