Counting Down to 2016 MET Gala: Last Year’s Most Memorable Look

With 2016 MET Gala being less than one week away, Fashion Times Daily’s editorial team would like to bring our lovely readers to reminisce last year’s most sensational look. With Chinese culture navigating the fashion of all mega stars, these most looked-up-upon style icons understood how to rock eastern Asian culture under the roof of western art museum.

Gong Li

A star whose name has become an attention grabber mantra across Asia for decades finally managed to expand her territory to the concrete jungle as Condé Nast’s artistic director, Anna Wintour, anointed her as one of the co-chairs of 2015 Costume Institute Gala. Her timeless oriental look was spiced up by a simple bun as the hairdo and a Roberto Cavalli maroon velvet qibao as the body wrapper.

The clingy dress unleashed its daring side as the star turned her back for some camera snaps.

Fan Bingbing

Chinese actress who has earned a VIP place in the heart of world’s most sought-after couturier like Zuhair Murad and Ralph & Russo bewitched every eye as she stepped in to the red carpet of Metropolitan Museum of Art on the first Monday in May 2015. Bingbing, who has received international recognition due to her role in Iron Man 3, made an exceptional entrance in Christopher Bu gold sequin strapless gown and crystal-looking emerald green cape.

Rihanna

Badgalriri had the red carpet cleared out especially for her. The dress that had caused a series of unimaginable memes ranging from omelet to pepperoni pizza was designed by Guo Pei and hand-created by two chinese ladies for two years. The metallic silver and gold headpiece was another wow-factor of her look.

Sarah Jessica Parker

Ain’t no MET without Carry? The lady who has become the barometer for Manhattan’s socialites had always walked MET’s Red Carpet with a bunch of unpredicted surprises. After wearing a faux mohawk in 2013 and a gigantic Philip Treacy flaming headdress in 2015, we cannot wait with what she will come up with this coming Monday.
