As we near the end of my 2019 Met Gala wishes I still have so many ideas to put out into the universe that I just had to surprise you guys and double up on wishes. Camp is art that proposes itself seriously, but cannot be taken altogether seriously because it is “too much.” That is a line straight out of Susan Sontag’s “Notes on ‘Camp.'” I am really intrigued in seeing what everyone will wear on this red carpet. Met Gala looks are typically considered ‘Too Much’ by the general public, so I am interested in seeing how designers, stylists, and stars handle purposefully being too much. Emily Blunt is a Met Gala regular. She doesn’t typically stick to a theme, but this year I would like to see her as part of the Gucci gang giving giving a chic yet extra fashion moment. I honestly didn’t know I wanted this custom Gucci gown which features a mint satin crystal beaded bodice, 3D ruffled shoulders, a floral detailed waist, and a salmon pink velvet draped column skirt until Evita, who edits all the images of these custom gowns for me, sent it to me. She used the bodice of a Gucci Fall 2019 RTW dress to create this gown. It is this very flirty and feminine take on ‘Camp’ style and I think that is exactly what I think would be perfect for Emily to wear on this red carpet. Defined eyes lined in lavender, a romantic updo, rose pink lips, a blush satin Jimmy Choo ‘Crystal Bow Cloud’ clutch, rose pink Jimmy Choo ‘Milly’ strappy leather sandals, and a pair of padparadscha sapphire Lorraine Schwartz drop earrings would all ensure that Emily does this theme perfectly, but in her own way. It still baffles me that Kiernan Shipka has not been invited to a Met Gala in the past. I am hoping that with the major success of her Netflix series Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina I am praying that invitation finally arrives for Kiernan. I know that she could definitely come to hang with almost anyone on this red carpet and definitely live up to the expectations that I have set for her. I would love to see Kiernan rock her first Met Gala red carpet as a guest of Prada. I mentioned in the post earlier today that I want to see some of the Prada Spring 2019 RTW collection tie dye prints turned into amazing custom gowns for this years Met Gala red carpet and so while I don’t know if they would do two tie dye gowns for the same red carpet I would love to see them create this strapless a-line gown which features all over sequin fabrication of that black, silver, pink, and blue tie dye print. For most I would want to see a dramatic train added for the Met Gala red carpet, but I don’t think that should be the case for this gown for Kiernan especially with how I want to style it. Her short hair styled into a wavy bob with one of the Prada Spring 2019 Couture black satin oversized headbands embellished with white and pink crystals, winged eyes, soft pink lips, a black velvet and glitter The Volon ‘Cindy’ rose pink feather detailed chain strap evening bag, a pair of black satin Prada crystal embellished sandals, and vintage Harry Kotlar diamond cluster earrings would make this the perfect look for Kiernan to rock for her Met Gala debut. Miley Cyrus has been debuting more of a soft feminine vibe on the red carpet for the last year or so. Miley on a ‘Camp’ themed Met Gala red carpet 5-7 years ago would have been a trip. She would have probably shown up in a crystal embellished body suit by The Blonds and not much else. Now I am doing something that is much more flirty and feminine than what I would have expected had this gala happened back then. I was inspired by the Miu Miu Fall 2019 RTW collection and the chic tiered taffeta mini dresses that came down the runway. There was one look that came down that runway that had a camo print that I thought was perfect for this years Met Gala theme, even if it is the wrong version of ‘Camp.’ It fits Miley’s country roots. This strapless ballgown features a silver belt with a thick metal buckle and would be perfectly styled with chic old Hollywood waves, defined eyes, dark pink lips, a pair of silver Chloe Gosselin ‘Tori’ crystal fringe detailed sandals, and Djula ‘Beverly Hills’ emerald cut diamond wreath earrings.Rosie Huntington-Whiteley recently announced that she is pregnant again, and thus threw off my Met Gala wish for her. I was going to do this heart shaped pleated lame Attico Fall 2019 RTW mini dress, but I decided it wouldn’t work if Rosie is showing a bit of a bump by the time the Met Gala rolls around on the first Monday in May. I decided that I wanted to keep Rosie in an Attico design, so I went on a hunt deciding that custom was the way to go. So I found a pastel 3D floral sequined mini dress from the Attico Fall 2019 RTW collection on Moda Operandi and thought they were perfect for this red carpet. The original dress only had flowers on the front and a plain back panel down the back. I personally want to see those flowers completely covering both the front and back of this gown. Now it is a chic and dramatic moment all at the same time as it is pictured here, but I was thinking that adding some sort of mint silk bow sash detail waist that turns into a train to add another element of drama to this look. A sleek high bun, smokey eyes, bold pink lips, a mint green metallic python Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch, chic nude Aquazzura ‘Spritz’ crystal embellished leather mule sandals, and a pair of Chopard amethyst, lime-green emerald, sky-blue sapphire and diamond drop earrings would definitely finish this look out with feminine elegance. Sofia Carson has really been upping her style game wearing a lot of Giambattista Valli Couture lately. She definitely fits well with the French couture brand, but when it came to the look I want to see her wear if she makes her Met Gala debut this year is from one of the other French couture houses, this one a legacy house. Schiaparelli hasn’t been worn by a major star on the Met Gala red carpet since its revival. That honestly surprises me since it was the 2012 gala that inspired the resurrection of the label. I am hoping that since it seems like there are a few both modern and original Schiaparelli designs in this years Costume Institute exhibit, which is where the Met Gala theme comes from, that we will finally get a major Met Gala moment for Schiaparelli. I think that this white and blush pink Schiaparelli Spring 2019 Couture strapless ballgown is definitely perfect for this years ‘Camp’ theme and I honestly believe that Sofia is the perfect person to bring this gown to life on this red carpet. It is that big princess moment that Sofia loves and I believe that if she is invited that she would absolutely deliver a chic princess moment for her first Met Gala. Finish this look with a sleek high bun updo, defined eyes, bold pink lips, a pair of hot pink satin Roger Vivier ‘Lavalliere’ pumps, and Lorraine Schwartz diamond ear jackets all would ensure that Sofia brings that princess glamour in the most perfect way possible to her first Met Gala red carpet. Uma Thurman rounds out today’s wishes with a gown I’m honestly not sure we will see on this years red carpet. It has been reported that Dior isn’t buying a table at this years gala so I am expecting the brands presence to be minimal at best. I do however adore this dark pewter and teal metallic lame pleated Christian Dior Spring 2019 Couture caped gown and I believe that it is perfect for Uma Thurman. It would mesh Uma’s more elegant style, the more bohemian vibe of Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Dior, and this years ‘Camp’ theme. A romantic updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of black Jimmy Choo ‘Sereno’ crystal buckle sandals, and chic Chopard Haute Joallerie diamond drop earrings would add the perfect finishing touches to this look.
The 2019 Met Gala will take place on the first Monday in May: May 6, 2019.
