Celebrities attending the Met Gala have always been known for their bold and daring fashion choices. But how involved are they in choosing their looks for the event? According to celebrity stylist Jordan Grossman, the answer is that it varies.
“A celebrity can be as involved or uninvolved as they want in choosing and designing their Met Gala looks,” Jordan explained. “Celebrities, for the most part though, hire stylists to spearhead the project and put their trust in them.”
This means that the celebrity’s stylist is responsible for sourcing the designer, fabric, and accessories that will make up the look. The stylist then works with the designer to ensure that the look meets the celebrity’s vision.
However, some celebrities are more hands-on with their Met Gala looks. For example, Beyoncé famously designed her own look for the 2017 Met Gala. She worked with designer Peter Dundas to create a bejeweled bodysuit and cape, which she paired with a glittering headpiece.
Other celebrities are more involved in the creative process, working with their stylists to come up with the perfect look. For example, Blake Lively worked with her stylist, Ryan Hastings, to create her 2017 Met Gala look. The pair worked with designer Atelier Versace to create a stunning pink gown with a thigh-high slit.
Regardless of how involved a celebrity is in choosing their Met Gala look, the goal is always to make a statement. After all, the Met Gala is one of the most prestigious fashion events of the year, and celebrities want to make sure that their look stands out.
So, while some celebrities choose to be more hands-on with their Met Gala looks, others are happy to put their trust in their stylists. Either way, the goal is always to make a statement and ensure that their look is one to remember.
