The Met Gala is just days away (Monday, May 2, FYI), which can only mean one thing: browse the archives and relive some of our favorite fashion moments at one of the events. the most elegant and prestigious of the annual fashion calendar. . A-listers lucky enough to attend the event hosted by the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute go many different sartorial directions on the red carpet each year, usually to coincide with the theme of the year, but one common theme that always seems to dominate the red carpet, regardless of dress code, is flashing flesh.
The stars aren’t shy about showing off their enviable bodies on the red carpet in a variety of ways, whether through a provocative plunging forehead or a dangerously high slit; sometimes even both! But another of our favorite ways to see the bodies of Hollywood’s biggest names is the sheer, sheer dress trend, which never fails to make jaws drop on the red carpet. And you can bet the Met Gala has seen its fair share over the years! Here are a few of our many favorites from the past few years…
The Best Father’s Day Gift Options for *Every* Dad
Jennifer Lopez in 2015
J-Lo has so many outfits that will go down in history (this green Versace dress from the 2000 Grammy Awards still tops our list!) and her 2015 Met Gala look is definitely one of them. The 52 year old man Marry me The star’s sheer, figure-hugging Atelier Versace gown was truly stunning, and we have no other words!
Emily Ratajkowski in 2019
In 2019, EmRata treated fans to a half-naked, half-naked dress with her see-through custom Dundas dress that allowed her to flaunt her figure and rock-hard abs at the same time. And the 30-year-old model understood the mission perfectly, because the theme of “Camp: Notes on Fashion” was “the love of the unnatural: artifice and exaggeration”. And Emily’s helmet, and the whole thing in general, was just that!
Zoe Kravitz in 2021
We think celebrities made up for lost time (or a missed year thanks to the pandemic in 2020) at last year’s Met Gala, as they got bigger and sleeker than ever! Zoë was one of many stars to bare it all on the red carpet for ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,’ and the 33-year-old big little lies The actress’ metallic Saint Laurent sheer dress (with matching thong, no less) has remained rent-free in our minds ever since!
Kim Kardashian in 2015
The 41-year-old SKIMS founder has had numerous Met Gala looks since debuting in 2013 in the infamous Givenchy floral number she wore when pregnant with daughter North West, but her see-through ensemble of 2015 was one of our favorites; and most true to Kim’s jaw-dropping, jaw-dropping style.
Kendall Jenner in 2021
Once upon a time the Kardashians (and therefore the Jenners) weren’t considered important enough to get an invite to the Met Gala *can you imagine? * but we are glad this is no longer the case. We can’t imagine a life where that embellished silver nude dress that left absolutely nothing to the imagination didn’t exist!
Halle Berry in 2017
The 55-year-old Oscar-winning actress should also have won an award for her 2017 Met Gala look, because we’re still obsessed with it five years later. Halle Berry slayed on the Met Gala red carpet — her very first, if you can believe it! – and she definitely understood the mission of the theme “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: the art of the in-between” with her Atelier Versace jumpsuit-dress-embroidered transparent dress combo.
Beyonce in 2015
Where to start with this jaw-dropping look?! The 40-year-old “Be Alive” singer’s arrival for the 2015 Met Gala, themed “China: Through the Looking Glass,” was well worth the wait thanks with the transparent flower Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci. encrusted masterpiece. Just wow!
Kylie Jenner in 2017
Kendall and Kylie Jenner have both dominated the Met Gala red carpet since they first appeared there, but the 24-year-old Kylie Cosmetics founder’s 2017 look, in which she was literally dripping with jewelry in a nude Versace gown was our absolute favorite. A sheer dress, endless bling and a short platinum blonde wig equals a winning dress combination every time!
Irina Shayk in 2021
The 36-year-old former Victoria’s Secret angel never fails to make a statement on the red carpet (or on the runway or on the street, for that matter) and her nude Moschino dress made up of a sheer bodice and of strategic floral details was breathtaking. -plug!
