The most fashionable and exclusive fundraising event was happening last night in our very own New York City, and Faviana is here to give you the latest trends from the 2016 Met Gala. This years theme was Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology. It focuses on the hand made versus man-made, the haute couture versus the pret-a-porter and how they have intertwined with each other. The attendees went all out this year, from the simplistic to the avant-garde, they did not disappoint. See what trends Faviana loves from this year’s Met Gala.
Can we talk about Amber Heard’s custom made Ralph Lauren dress? This has got to be my favorite look of the night. Vintage inspired fashion has been really trendy lately, but Amber has nailed this old-Hollywood look with this body flattering, high-slit satin dress. The dress is cinched slightly in a delicate knot at the waist-line. The v-neck and high-slit also incorporate two more trends seen on the red carpet.
However, Mrs. Depp let the press know this was a one-of-a-kind design that was only made for her, disappointing many who longed for a similar style. Not to worry! Here at Faviana, we are always on trend. Faviana style 7755 is almost identical. One of our hottest styles, it certainly will make you look like you just stepped off the red carpet. Top off this look with a bold matte lip, some drop earrings, and classic pinned back waves.
Strapless dresses go in and out of fashion, but they are definitely trending now as multiple actresses were sporting stunning strapless dresses. Who doesn’t like to show off some shoulder? The strapless dress is a flattering and feminine option that has become a staple in fashion. Admit it, you have to have at least one strapless dress in the back of your closet somewhere. Now is the time to wear it! From Blake Lively to Margot Robbie, our talented Hollywood actresses were going strapless.
Want to pull off Blake’s look? Try Faviana style 7822. Add a pair of long earrings, some shiny bracelets, and your favorite clutch to complete the look. A necklace is optional as it looks dazzling with or without one!
The High Slit
Bare shoulders isn’t the only way the ladies of the red carpet were showing off some skin. The thigh-high slit was all over the red carpet last night. The high slit is a classic look that combines sophistication and subtle sexiness. Not only does this style give you more ease of movement, shows the right amount of skin while still looking classy. It also you to showcase your fancy footwear, so be sure to choose the right shoe. Read our article “Selecting the Right Shoes for your Dress” for tips on picking perfect shoe for any type of dress.
By the way, did you see Liberty Ross’s dress? It combines all three trends; the Classic Hollywood, the Strapless, and the High-Slit. Want to be extra trendy and pull off all three trends as well? Try Faviana style 7891. The strapless shoulders and thigh-high slit adds some extra fire to an already hot dress, while still giving you the classic Hollywood look. Put on some strappy heels and you favorite clutch to complete this look.
