MET GALA 2017

Met Gala 2017: Katy Perry, Rose Byrne, Doutzen Kroes, and More Wear Red in Honor of Rei Kawakubo

Just over two years ago, for Spring 2015, Rei Kawakubo showed an entire collection envisioned in red, her mood board splashed with roses and blood. She returns to red season after season: One of the standout looks in her Spring 2017 collection was an overdrawn dress with a patent bodice; the logo for her subsidiary label Comme des Garçons Play is a red heart with eyes. And, though a mere handful of stars wore actual Comme des Garçons looks on the red carpet at the 2017 Met Gala celebrating Kawakubo’s Comme des Garçons, many honored Kawakubo by wearing deep shades of red. For singer Katy Perry, this meant a veiled custom Maison Margiela Artisanal dress; for Michèle Lamy, the business partner and wife of designer Rick Owens, this meant one of those instantly recognizable Comme des Garçons looks. Elsewhere, there was political commentator Megyn Kelly in Altuzarra, Amy Fine Collins in Thom Browne, Doutzen Kroes in Brock Collection, and more—see the stars who burned hottest in Comme des Garçons red, here.
