Metallics reigned on Met Gala red carpet

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) — Gladiator-worthy metallics and sparkly embellishments, along with a show of feathers and chunky boots, swept the red carpet at the Met Gala on Monday night.

The event celebrates the Met's new exhibit opening Thursday, "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," which covers the convergence of man and machine.

Lady Gaga

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West

Kim Kardashian spoke volumes about the evening's theme as she walked in a silver Balmain gown. She said she wanted to conjure a "blingy, sexy robot."

Her hubby Kanye West wore a Balmain silver-embellished denim jacket to match, with ripped jeans and a scowl on his face as he explained what his fashion intention:

"Vibes," was all he said. And it was enough.

Beyonce

Beyonce wore a rubbery looking gown in peach, no Jay Z in sight.

Madonna

Madonna flaunted her exposed buttocks in lacy Givenchy.

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik

Zayn Malik walked the carpet with Gigi Hadid in a suit tricked out with Knights of the Round Table metal arms.

Lupita Nyong'o

Lupita Nyong'o donned a custom Calvin Klein Collection jade sequin dress with velvet straps, her hair standing high in a conical-shape 'do.

Kendall Jenner

Kendall killed it in a slinky Versace gown with a blue and white geometric design and sexy side cutouts.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift, one of the evening's co-hosts, wore a short silver sequined Louis Vuitton gown with high black gladiator sandals. 

Solange Knowles

Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner wore Balmain for an Old Hollywood gown in silver.

Zoe Saldana

Katy Perry

Katy Perry, like Gaga not shy about shocking on carpets, wore black Prada with clunky gold embellishment and a long train, an old-school Tamagotchi digital pet on her belt as her "tech contribution," her hair done in a high black beehive.

The annual gala, organized by Wintour for 18 years, brings in millions for the museum. The carpet — red, beige and pink this year — wended up the museum's grand staircase and was, as always, a blinding display of A-listers from film, music, sports and fashion.

The strong show of silver, copper and other metallic looks, perhaps to emphasize the machine part of the evening's equation, included Poppy Delevingne in low-cut silver tiered spangles and jewels on a Marchesa gown, her platinum hair hanging loose.
