The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute benefit gala, or the Met Gala, as it’s commonly known, brings A-listers from around the world to celebrate the museum’s annual fashion-oriented show.
It is the biggest night in fashion, and this year the biggest names in fashion, music, and sports chose to wear custom creations by ApparelMagic clients for their struts up the red carpet.
Jonathan Simkhai, one of New York’s leading young designers, and an ApparelMagic client, took Josephine Skriver, a supermodel and one of his muses, as his date. They stunned paparazzi and onlookers alike with their coordinated florals.
Basketball star Odell Beckham Jr. one-upped the rest of the men on the red—or more accurately, pink—carpet when he showed up in a Thom Browne sleeveless suit jacket and matching wool kilt. Worn with unlaced boots and tattoos all over, he took the look to the next level.
Shutting down the arrivals was the ever-charismatic musician Cardi B, also in Thom Browne. In an anatomically-correct burgundy gown with a bodice encrusted with real rubies and a yards-long train edged in feathers, she was the night’s fan favorite, topping best-dressed lists and showing that ApparelMagic clients are on the cutting edge of fashion.
