Next to the Met Gala and the Oscars, the CFDA Awards complete the trifecta of red carpet events I eagerly await each year. These are more literally the Oscars of Fashion (as there are actual awards, unlike the Met Gala) where designers escort their celebrity muses down the red carpet. This year’s fashion choices were…interesting…to say the least, so let’s just get right to it.
With this year’s Met Gala theme being Manus x Machina (man made vs. machine made fashion) we’ve seen a lot of different interpretations. From extreme beading and other intricate details to all silver everything (I guess when people hear “fashion in an age of technology” they immediately think METALLICS!) we’ve seen it all. But have we? That was only the beginning. So let’s take a look at the most “on theme” and / or over the top looks from the 2016 Met Ball red carpet.
