2018 Fashion Moments You May Have Missed
First of all, it wouldn’t be a fashion blog without mentioning Rihanna, right?
Held on the first Monday in May, the Met Gala is one of fashion’s boldest nights. Featuring a whole bunch of A list celebrities, it’s arguably the most expensive theme party of the year.
This year’s theme for the gala was ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’. So, who better to make Catholicism haute couture than Rihanna? After being selected to co-chair the glamourous fundraiser, Rihanna’s was one of the hardest 2018 fashion moments you may have missed. Taking inspiration from the Pope, Rihanna’s sparkling look was hand sewn with hundreds of pearls.
So, if you want a celebrity guest to follow a theme- pop star Rihanna is your girl.
Next, the biggest comeback of the year.
After postponing a 2017 headline slot at Coachella, when she was pregnant with twins, which is as good a reason as any right, Beyoncé returned to the stage. Performing at the American music festival with a HBCU theme, one of the biggest 2018 fashion moments you may have missed is- actually quite a small detail.
Bouncing back to the college theme, Beyoncé wore a varsity cropped sunshine yellow hoodie, designed specifically by Balmain. Plus, replicas were briefly sold at Balmain’s Paris flagship store- and sold out for a cool $500 each. So, a 2018 fashion moment you may have missed because you weren’t quick enough! Styling yellow can be simple- taking inspiration from a Disney princess, we’ve put together some inpiration.
We got to see an actual princess’ wedding dress
Additionally, May was a fashionable month for another occasion, yes, Prince Harry’s wedding to American actress Megan Markle. Although it’s unlikely one of the 2018 fashion moments you may have missed is Megan’s dress, did you catch the details?
After surprising the world with an understated Givenchy gown, Megan added to her veil. Paying tribute to the Commonwealth states and her home state of California by embroidering emblems of each into the fabric was a touching gesture. Plus, we wrote about the moments you may have missed from the big day itself in a blog post!
Becoming unconventionally feminine
Following the success of her debut lead in A Star Is Born, Lady Gaga had a true sweep in the style stakes. Appearing at numerous film festivals in couture gowns which broke the internet, one of the biggest 2018 fashion moments you may have missed is her appearance at Elle’s Women in Hollywood event.
Deciding against choosing from a rack of dresses, fashion forward Gaga chose an oversized taupe suit by Marc Jacobs- and looked femininely bad ass in a way only Gaga could!
