Fashion , Technology & Met Gala 2016 .
This year’s MET Gala is totally unique as its theme is Techie with Manus x Machina : Fashion in an Age of Technology. This the gala is the organization’s primary funding source for exhibitions and other expenses.
The Met Gala Red Carpet was all Techie. Though there were high expectations to see what celebrities would come up with.
It was a combination and show of hand and machine couture and designs.
The theme goes a long way to show that fashion and technology has a proper handshake and who knows this might just be the future of fashion and style.
Technology is really the next key thing to occur in our lives , its gonna be a takeover.
The theme displayed a union of hand and machine where (manus means hand & Machine means machine).
From silver to metallic like dresses to dresses made of real diamonds to robotic arms to elegant dresses made entirely of recycled plastic bottles, Met Gala 2016 is an obvious proof that fashion and tech can come together to produce one over-the-top spectacle.
The Fashion-Tech Looks From The Met Gala
Taylor Swift’s grunge phase continued going strong in a — you guessed it — metallic Louis Vuitton minidress and knee-high gladiator heel complete with a deep-plum pout.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik
H&M made a custom white gown for Jennifer Hudson, complete with 3-D beading, hand-melted sequins, and French knots. And yes — the four-foot-long tulle train definitely helped Hudson make one of the most memorable entrances of the evening.
Lara Stone took a classic glamour route in her long-sleeved Tom Ford gown tailored to her every inch. Vertical stripes of glimmering beads dripped from top to bottom, and contrasting solid black trim lined the dress at the neckline and wrist. And, that attached choker detail you’ve been seeing on bloggers and Hadids left and right makes an appearance here, too.
Lauren Santo Domingo
Attendees must be hearing Poppy Delevingne jingle as she walks by in her Marchesa gown dripping in silver beading and studded, blinged-out accessories. It seems one of the most direct ways to approach this year’s theme is through all-metallic-everything.
Model Anna Ewers went for a dazzling, one-shoulder Hugo Boss gown that has the kind of 3-D texture you just want to touch. It’s on the conservative side, but brings just the right contemporary and festive feel to this year’s carpet.
You can officially add Cindy Crawford to your running list of #BalmainArmy members. The iconic supermodel sparkled in a Balmain couture long-sleeved mirrored sequin gown that resembled the top of the Chrysler Building.
Look, but don’t touch — that’s the message Kim Kassel’s three-dimensional dress by Giles Deacon was sending. It’s a hand-held-windmill-meets-sea-urchin creation that definitely speaks to the exhibit’s emphasis on futuristic, intricately created couture pieces that you have to see in person to really believe. We’re not entirely sure how someone goes into a bathroom stall in an ensemble like this one, but we guess that’s none of our business
We love to see Brie Larson stepping out of her comfort zone and into some Proenza Schouler. A single black ribbon at the center of the bodice and some waterfall ruffles are all it took to make this sequin dress stand out from crowd.
Yes, tonight’s carpet is no stranger to some silver sequins, but Mackenzie Davis took it up a notch with a dramatic sheer cape by Altuzarra that added extra dimension to her skin-bearing, deep-V gown. An on-trend choker and stud earrings is all the look required to feel truly Met Gala-ready
Emma Watson is dress-over-pants’ #1 cheerleader, and this custom Calvin Klein dress mixes business casual with black tie. Bonus (and the best subtle nod to tech of the evening): This ensemble was made with recycled plastic bottles.
We’ve seen this dress in person, and Kylie is wearing at least twenty pounds of sparkle here. Props to Balmain for making a dress so heavy look so ethereal, and snaps to Ms. Jenner for turning this red carpet walk into a workout.
Just when you thought ombre was dead and gone, the trend showed up on LaLa Anthony’s glimmering Nicolas Jebran frock that plunges just far enough to make us do a double take.
The upper portion’s got some serious structure — so much so that she probably won’t be hugging too many fellow celebs tonight without major friction issues. Accessories in this red-hot look were kept to a minimum to let the gown do the real talkin Kate Bosworth
Kate Bosworth looked like luxe, modern-day royalty in a diamond-encrusted Dolce & Gabbana dress. While we can only imagine how much a dress like this weighs (and the same goes for many a dress on tonight’s carpet) nothing beats going big or going home with the embellishments for an event like this on Kris Jenner
A skin-tight, long-sleeved dress isn’t a huge departure for Kris Jenner — especially a skin-tight, long-sleeved Balmain dress — but the unbelievably complex beadwork on the dress is ten points for Team Manus Kate Hudson
This Atelier Versace gown takes 3D printing to the next level future. And for those who got to see it in person, it looked like Hudson was floating down the carpet.Lady Gaga
Well, if this isn’t a flashback to the 80s, we don’t know what is. This custom Versace body suit may not be the most comfortable (or warm) silver offering of the night, but it sure is fun to look at. Karolina Kurkova
There always has to be one attendee who looks straight out of a fairy tale dream, and Karolina Kurkova got that superlative tonight in a Marchesa gown that floated down the carpet like air.
So would you rock a Techie outfit ???? Whose outfit describes the Tech Theme Best ??
