“The first and most important presentation was that of Blake Lively, with a really impressive dress, worthy of the golden age of fashion and Hollywood. It was more for an Oscar award. The dress, which was completely gold, bronze, and copper, was transformed into a turquoise color, with copper-colored spots. Inspired by those movies and in that New York is so rich. Once again the Atelier Versace gave a chair of construction to what Donatella’s dresses have accustomed us to, “he said in an interview.

Anna Wintour is in an ostrich-feathered jacket and an all-over embroidered patchwork dress. She has an impressive job, with many hours of embroidery. She is current. There is very strong maximalism. There is jewelry on top of a perfectly worked mini cape and a tiara.”, described Lage.
Meanwhile, Sarah added, “With her traditional signature hair, she accessorized a crown this year. She is usually always dressed in Chanel with very classic colors, always pulling gray. This time she broke with the monotony, she used light blue, pink, gray, and black feathers and embroidery, which made a stunning outfit. It was obvious that they took great care to make it look handmade and that the hand of man is noticeable. It shows like the relief of the embroidery”.
Ana Wintour is an emblem of world fashion. With an incredible embroidered cape, with decoration accessories in stones, feathers, and accompanied by a matching skirt. A spectacular outfit. Once again, honoring her profession with these magnificent garments of elegance and sophistication in her style, ”said Profumo.
And Romano added: “ Opulence, luxury, and power. It is totally in tune with the theme and the power of color in the palette works perfectly for it. I loved the mix between a pastel and a copper tone, plus the texture of the embroidery. The gloves elevate the elegance and I loved the play of the tail with different shades”.
“Incredible Vanessa Hudgens with this brand new design in black chiffon, completely transparent from neck to toe. Very well achieved and worn in this suggestive and elegant outfit, her hairstyle and make-up are excellent. Total sophistication”, said Profumo in an interview.
Meanwhile, Sarah stated: “ Impressive with a transparent Moschino dress and worked on the chest part, to make a kind of bodice, which did not reveal anything and set the trend that underwear is noticeable in the dress, but not as a culotte, but as small and tall, provocative underwear. A dress that, if it were opaque, would be very covered, but with the transparencies and the play of lace it makes it very sexy.”.
“She wears a very transparent dress, with balloon organza sleeves and transparency on the chest, with embroidered lace appliqués, layers of chiffon, and a lace train. I love the whole proposal, I find it super contemporary, cool, and elegant and it goes very well with the theme. Her entire look is very well done. It fascinates me and the black gives it that touch of elegance,” explained Romano.
“I loved. The work of embroidery and how it looks and connects the silhouette throughout the body. Incorporating the accessories into the dress. From a movie but super contemporary, ”said Romano.
While Lage added: “She has a very ’70s diva style. The swimming cap entirely worked in glassware, widely used in many shows at that time. A serenaded or mermaid dress with a jewel neckline, which is worked in glassware, and the entire dress in lycra applied with micro paillettes. A mix of absolute modernity with those divas of the 70s, and the accessories have to do with that neckline because they also have cuffs that simulate bracelets created just like the dress”
“The most unique thing about this dress is that it has a slit up the side, but it’s a classic dress. What it has, in particular, is that it is transparent, the parts or the underwear are not noticeable. One more peculiarity, there is not a single clamp. It’s done the old-fashioned way, which is to cut out the pieces of lace and come back to make the shape of the body without having to pinch or cut. He has a spectacular night blue tuxedo, with black details and the typical white handkerchief as an accessory. Sarah said.
While Profumo added: “ This outfit is very elegant with the simulation of transparency and an incredibly successful choppy lace design, although I would have liked the neckline or an American neckline to be more exposed, freeing the shoulders. It would have helped her a lot more.”
“We see a fairly strong mix of a line that has a lot to do with these years, which is the leitmotif of the MET Gala, but that has a mix of art Deco, art Nouveau and a lot of modernity. It is a dress with absolutely current work, in silk thread made especially for this piece and with many hours of work, in micro paillettes and crystals, made on transparency. I loved it because it is a job that we currently do. And it’s a mix of necklines. The style looks fabulous”, Lage pointed out.
While Profumo pointed out: “With a spectacular dress superimposed in silver lace with transparency, an excellent outfit with a perfect hairstyle and make-up that enhances her and show her more slender. Completely ideal for her height.”
“Alicia with a real spectacle, this costume is fantastic. She has a strapless Fourreau dress, entirely glasswork, set entirely in glassware, and this perfect image of New York in her asymmetrical satin cape cut in wedges, with a high neck. And all this applique in Swarovski crystals at its base. A magnificent job. Fabulous,” said Lage.
While Romano highlighted: “She wears a full-body embroidered dress with a strapless corset and a cape all embroidered with details of the city of New York in crystals. I find it amazing, super modern. And her complete look between makeup, hair and accessories and jewelry, they were impeccable ”.
“A stunning green dress, draped in a taffeta would look like natural silk, which has a dramatic cape. She’s a red carpet, Oscars, and thousands of awards show actress, and this time she looks stunning with that big necklace too and that trendy hair. Although I don’t think she’s there for the MET gala, ”said Saiach analyzed.
Meanwhile, Lage pointed out: “It is a piece in natural silk taffeta, with a cut of segments, a dropped shoulder neckline and the cape is held from the same neckline. In a slightly bright aqua green color, the piece is wonderful, super elegant. I don’t know if it represents the era that much, but it is fascinating .”
“ Tom Ford was always impeccable and with the typical style of the golden age of New York, where the shirt and everything inside, apart from the suit, was white. Apart from the detail of a white flower on the label”, said Sarah.
Meanwhile, Profumo assured: “Immaculately elegant as expected! Her outfit is very correct, classic, and very sexy. Immaculate details such as his shirt, bow, and boutonniere in white accompanying this brand new tuxedo ”.
Emma Stone, said: ” I loved it, it seemed to me that she did it once again, especially in the chosen color, because it showed that women do not necessarily have to be tanned, or with a particular color to be able to dress insure. The dress is extremely beautiful and fits her brutally; and she would tell you practically looks like a swan, like ethereal, which was always the slogan of the dresses of that golden age, which also had a lot of feathers. The short is what she allowed herself to leave and raise it a little above the knee”.
“If the 60-something had to be present, Emma is absolutely a sample of it. A lingerie piece with feathers and embroidery, but minimalist. This is what I call true minimalism because with little they have a lot. It is a piece that takes work, it is achieved in satin, with an overlapping muslin and a work of paillettes in spikes. Deco also participates a lot, in that fashion there was a deco reminiscence and this dress is perfect.I think it’s going to be talked about because it’s a bit the antithesis of what is being seen ages added.
“ Emma Chamberlain is very sensual at this gala, the sensuality and simplicity of this lady are incredible, accompanying a hairstyle and make-up that is a trend. The noble genres and the combination of white with raw in that skirt to the body, with drag, and that blouse with romantic and short sleeves revealing the abdomen. She is incredibly spectacular for her age on a brand new international red carpet”, Evaluated Profumo.
In that sense, Romano explained: “It is in two pieces. The silhouette of the top is with a large balloon and it has a drape and ruffles on the chest in a nude color. And he combines it with a crepe skirt with a train, in a mermaid cut. It’s a pretty modern, minimalist look and it’s just right .”
“Spectacular dress of the highest fashion, with stone inlays and a combination of ivory, silver, and white , with an ultra-baroque style and high visual impact. This is a gala to wear it and be distinguished with a suit like this. It hurts the detail of the glasses. Impossible to be able to wear an outfit like this with glasses”, lamented Profumo.
While Lage added: “Featuring corsetry work overlayed in sheer netting, the entire base of the mermaid skirt and train is micro-ruffled with amazing work. Inlays in silk thread, in glass and it has the theme that was planned. Very spectacular. On the sword and the front, there is a figure of a skeleton ”.
The most avant-garde looks
The controversy was the order of the day with some looks that exceeded avant-garde. Although, the experts noticed some points in favor.
He has a fabulous job, they are all laser cuts and he makes about 4 collections that present these lines. The work is magnificent and worth appreciating because achieving the undulating movement that it has is fabulous. They are artistic and sculptural pieces. Work on different types of textures, paint by hand. Moreover, this is not one of the most striking, some are more so”, said Lage.
For his part, Profumo added: “Although it took me to an alien look, it is very well achieved in versatility and avant-garde. It’s exotic and novel. Very uncomfortable to be used, but we must recognize that it is an excellently histrionic design and very well achieved”.
“He arrived on the red carpet with a performance, his oversize look is composed of layers. Combine various fabrics such as silk, velvet, satin and embroidered details in the same piece. a work in patchwork more volume. A tailor shop with changes in its morphology can also be seen below. The bow tie and the shirt as icons of black tie . Complex and with many design resources”, assured Romano.
While Lage added: “It is a piece that is going to give a lot to talk about, that not everyone is going to like but it has a fabulous job. The skirt is composed of two or three different types of textiles that are difficult to combine, it has padding to give it volume, an absolute mixture of styles. A shirt under a rigid corset shaped like a tank top really is a very extravagant mix. It is a piece that can be talked about, you may not like it or love it, but it has a fabulous sewing job ”.
“ The MET gala dresses are very famous because some have to arrive by bus, not by car because celebrities have to arrive standing up . In this case, it is also impossible to sit down. This has to be changed because it is made exclusively for the show. I don’t get it but it sounds like funSaiach said.
“An absolutely exotic piece. A resounding mixture of the 18th century, a skirt very much in the style in which Marie Antoinette was portrayed, taken to absolute modernity with a net on the transparent base. A work of geometry made in incredible glassware and metal. An absolutely modern blouse in micro paillettes and wonderful work on a jacket that has a mix of modernity in leather, with a mao collar, and an appliqué of a bobbin lace, which mixes the art deco style. A fascinating piece of incredible work and achieved in a very special way. It is one of the pieces that impacted me the most ,” Lage said.
