[ZOOMER TIMES] Met Gala Looks of the Decade

Anise Gonzalez, Review Staff

New York City, the place known for endless runways of the most sensational articles of clothing the eye can see. N.Y.C is also home to the infamous Metropolitan Museum of Art who hosts the annual Met Gala, a yearly fundraiser to support the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. This long-running tradition opens the doors to the costume institute’s annual fashion exhibit. 

Every year people all around the world await until the theme of the Met Gala is announced.he decade has brought some of the weirdest, beautiful, extravagant and draw-dropping gowns and costumes to walk the red carpet. Now may I present to you the best dressed at the Met Gala from the last decade or so (according to yours truly). 



To start off of our Met Ball decade, the 2001 theme: Jacqueline Kennedy: The White House Years. Now if you’re a fan of The Rocky Horror Picture Show you’ll agree with me, Nell Campbell hands down captured “Jacqueline Kennedy”. 


Kate Hudson has had some astonishing looks throughout the decade, but in 2003 Hudson most definitely took the theme Goddess: The Classical Mode to the next level.


Dangerous Liaisons: Fashion and Furniture in the 18th Century, why have one good look for 2004 when you can have three? Amber Valetta, Natalia Vodianova, and Linda Evangelista brought furniture into the fashion world of the 18th century. 


2005 brought some of the most iconic fashion items from Coco Chanel. The theme being: The House of Chanel brought one of the most interesting fashion exhibits of 2005. Marilyn Manson and Dita Von Teese were hands down the best dressed there. 


John Galliano and Charlize Theron were definitely the best looking iconic due at the 2006 Met gala perfecting the theme of AngloMania: Tradition and Transgression in British Fashion.


2008 was the year of Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy most costumes were honestly quite disappointing, but homegirl Naomi Watts came through with a powerful but elegant portrayal of the theme.

Now skipping to 2017 because that year’s Met Gala theme has to be my top favorite. The Metropolitan Museum of Art blessed us with the theme: Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons. Most top list celebrities stuck with the magnificent creations the designers created and honestly we were not at all disappointed. 



Ysaunny Brito and Olivier Rousteing in Balmain were one of my favorite duos of 2017. 100/10

Rihanna in Comme des Garçons, The one, and only Rihanna was one of the many celebrities wearing one of Comme des Garçons exclusives.

 Katy Perry in Maison Margiela. Three words. Her best work. (sorry fireworks) 


Honestly, these just keep getting better and better 2018 brought the theme: Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. It seemed the Catholic imagination brought the best out of all fashion designers from Versace to Chanel and even last year’s Comme des Garçons

And last but not least the year to wrap up the decade 2019’s Met gala. When the costume institute first revealed this year’s theme, not only were the fans confused but A list celebrities as well. This year’s theme: Camp: Notes on Fashion. (also one of my top favorites)


Jared Leto in Gucci 

Kylie and Kendall Jenner even though their costumes didn’t really get the definition of camp they still captured the evolution of the Met Ball.

Ezra Miller and Michael Urie fully embraced the theme of Camp

Honorable mention: 

Yeah I know I know I didn’t put Lady Gaga in my list but that’s only because I admire her style choices for literally every single year she’s been to the met gala. 

So the winner for every single met gala of the decade Ms. Lady Gaga 


Theme: China: Through the Looking Glass


Theme: Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology


Theme: Camp: Notes on Fashion

The end 🙂
