The most glamorous event in the fashion calendar, The Met Gala was held at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art this week, and the glitterati were out in full force and dressed to impress!
The ball, hosted by American Vogue editor Anna Wintour, celebrated the opening of The Met’s new show ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ dedicated to the work of the late British couturier.
This year’s theme – ‘White Tie & Decorations’ saw a return to the classic elegance of years gone by, and the red carpet simply sparkled with spectacular floor length gowns.
We loved the stunning actress Lake Bell’s show stopping maternity gown in shocking red, and as for the rest – we’ve sorted through the best of the bunch to bring you our top 3 colour trends for red carpet style this season:
Belles of the Ball in Blue
We spotted gowns in every conceivable shade of blue this year, from Zooey Deschannel’s Tommy Hilfiger number in navy, to Diane Kruger’s delicate powder blue Jason Wu and Kim Kardashian’s show stopping split-to-the-hip Lanvin gown in midnight blue!
Blue is one of those miracle colours that flatters everyone – whatever your skin tone, so it’s always a great choice for a striking evening wear option. Explore our selection of maternity evening gowns in shades of blue:
Pretty in Pastel Pink
Pastel pink continues to reign supreme this season, and plenty of celebs chose to work this girly trend at the ball. Hollywood beauty Rachel McAdams wore a flowing Grecian gown in soft dusty pink by Ralph Lauren, and southern songstress Taylor Swift chose a feminine Oscar de la Renta creation in a barely there shade of pink which perfectly highlighted her porcelain complexion. Meanwhile British model Suki Waterhouse dazzled in a fabulously frothy Burberry gown in gradated shades of blush and nude.
Pastel pink is one of the hottest evening wear trends this year, so invest in a stunning pink maternity dress and you won’t go far wrong!
Some of the hottest stars at the ball took the ‘White Tie’ theme and ran with it, so we saw some truly spectacular monochrome styles gracing the red carpet. Rihanna cut a striking silhouette in a brilliant white Stella McCartney cut out gown, and Victoria Beckham wore a stunning structured gown of her own design. Even Queen Bey herself, the one and only Beyonce strutted her stuff in a dazzling beaded Givenchy gown.
Monochrome evening wear styles always seem to have that slightly edgy vibe that will help you to stand out from the crowd. Explore our monochrome maternity dresses, or create an edgy black and white trouser suit style:
