Swedish Influence At The 2018 Met GalaMay 8, 2018
The annual Met Gala is one of the biggest red-carpet events of the year, attracting celebrities and the fashion elite alike.
A fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City, the event embraces a different theme each year that coincides with the fashion exhibition on display at the Met. This year’s exhibition and theme is all about religion – “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.”
There was a fair share of classic couture from fashion houses like Gucci and Balmain, but one brand may surprise some people – the king of ready-to-wear, H&M. H&M previously has dressed stars like Ashley Graham and Nicki Minaj and at this year’s gala, its looks could be found on Lili Reinhart, Olivia Munn and Luka Sabbat, among others.
What else should you know about H&M at this year’s gala?
- Munn apparently had to get sewn into her H&M gown, according to the New York Times. E! also named her one of the best dressed of the evening.
- Glamour compiled a roundup of H&M looks and gives some back story to each – from sketch to final look.
- According to Business of Fashion, H&M purchased a table at the gala (which typically costs about $275,000) and is launching an H&M Gala collection, inspired by the looks worn at this year’s gala.
