Kerry Washington Gets Studded at Met Gala 2017

Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo who is the founder of fashion label Comme des Garçons is well known for her experimental clothes and this year it was no different.

I would have preferred him to play around with neo-textured designs which resemble a suit, like Golden Globe award-winning actor Rami Maleki did in a daring blood-red tux.

Caroline Kennedy is known for her classic sense of style and fashionable know-how, so it came as quite a shock to see the diplomat take to the red carpet at this year's Met Gala in a highly unflattering - and rather weird - dress that quite closely resembled an antique lampshade.

As Met Gala's co-chair, Katy Perry went all-out this year pushing her fashion limits to the edge.

Bella had the more talked-about and exciting look of the Hadid sisters with her see-through, sequined Alexander Wang jumpsuit, with the designer declaring that the young model is the "body of a generation" on the carpet.

Tickets reportedly cost $US30,000 ($A39,777) and tables fetched about $US275,000, with proceeds going to the Metropolitan Museum of Art's costume institute.

Her longtime hairstylist Mara Roszak, a big fan of Comme des Garcons, took inspiration from Rei Kawakubo's innovative spirit.

Oddly, reality star Kim Kardashian went for an understated look and is being complimented by many who say the look is outside the box for her.

Rihanna's floral, asymmetrical dress was slashed at the thigh and covered in bold colored discs layered like flower petals, paired with gladiator-style stilettos with red straps wrapped around her leg from ankle to thigh.

While Rihanna and Lily Rose Depp tried their darndest last night to overthrow her, the ultimate Met Gala prom queen title belongs to one Hillary Rodham Clinton.
