The 1 Designer Who Completely Took Over the Met Gala Red Carpet
When Nicolas Ghesquière brought out his loyal Louis Vuitton squad to the Met Gala, he was joined by his date, campaign star Alicia Vikander. But whether or not she had Nicolas at her side for her first time at the ball is no matter. She still would've stood out by a mile.
The LV gang, which also included cochair Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, and Jaden Smith, who got buzz from his womenswear ads for the brand, wore outfits that didn't just fit the theme. Thanks to short hemlines, fitted, but breezy silhouettes, functional boots, and must-have box clutches, these ensembles were wearable. Flashy, but wearable.
Nicolas dressed the nine celebs below in mixed-media pieces that, with intricate embroideries and leather or mesh appliqué, felt modern. But there was an unmissable attention to detail that drew us in and confirmed Louis Vuitton's Met Gala domination. It's not just a label for the streets but deserves to be appreciated on the carpet too. Scroll to take in every angle of the looks that won our hearts, and zoom in on all the accessories.
