If you aren’t a haute couture devotee, this year’s Met Gala theme probably doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. After all, it’s not exactly the super accessible themes of yesteryear such as “Punk” or “Manus x Machina.” But as we’ve explained before, this honor is being bestowed upon Comme des Garçons’ Rei Kawakubo because of her singular vision and unparalleled attention to construction, consistently pushing the boundaries of fashion forward. Which means you can also expect some pretty out-there ensembles to hit the Gala’s red carpet this year. And if any celebs are still struggling to put together their look for fashion’s biggest night, we’ve gone ahead and combed through the designer’s archives — and we have some dream suggestions for what they should wear.
Who Should Wear It: Kendall Jenner
Why: The model has famously said she’s cool with showing off her breasts, so why not give her the opportunity to display them to advantage? Besides, if anyone could make hip bolsters a thing, it’s probably her.
Who Should Wear It: Katy Perry
Why: The pop star (who modeled the designer’s creations for Vogue this month) has never shied away from a conceptual look, and we can’t help but feel she’d dig the cloud vibes of this particular ensemble. Plus, if she’s not particularly feeling her pixie cut that day, this fuzzy helmet will solve that problem in a snap.
Who Should Wear It: Lady Gaga
Why: This outfit really isn’t all that different from most of the things she wears on a regular basis.
Who Should Wear It: Rihanna
Why: Because if anyone can pull off a giant plastic rain hood and tattered gown, it’s the baddest gal at the Met Gala.
Who Should Wear It: Gisele Bundchen
Why: As this year’s host, it’s time she put all of her supermodel training to the ultimate test.
Who Should Wear It: Gwyneth Paltrow
Why: Gwyneth has admitted in the past that she finds this whole Gala to be pretty dull, so perhaps if she turned her bedspread into her gown for the evening she’d find the affair to be much more comfortable.
Who Should Wear It: Beyoncé
Why: This dress already has plenty of room for her baby bump built in, plus the shroud will give her that extra air of mystery that she’s always trying to cultivate.
Who Should Wear It: Gigi Hadid
Why: As the queen of athleisure, what could be more appropriate than showing up to the Gala in a motorcycle jacket and fur-lined sneakers all in a hue of millennial pink.
Who Should Wear It: Tom Brady
Why: While the fashion world isn’t quite his scene, the super wide shoulder and oversized proportion should make the footballer feel like he’s right back at home, field-side in his training jacket.
