Top 5 Met Gala 2018 Looks as Luxury Home Decor

Zendaya : Jasper, Decorative Crafts, Ironware InternationalWhat is the Met Gala?

The Costume Institute Gala at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is the biggest event on the fashion fundraising calendar. It was founded by publicist Eleanor Lambert, the benefit was first held in 1948 to encourage donations from New York’s high society. In its modern incarnation, the most famous faces from the realms of fashion, film, music and art come together to raise money for the Met’s Costume Institute and celebrate the grand opening of its latest exhibition. The night is centred on the theme of the new exhibition, this year’s exhibition theme is Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.

We at L.A. Design Concepts find beauty and interior design inspiration from all aspects of life. This is why we thought we’d break down our top 5 favorite Met Gala 2018 looks, as luxury home decor items.

Starting off our list,

#5. Zendaya

Zendaya (pictured above) came dressed in an all silver chain-link page girl inspired look. The attention to detail in her attire was flawless. The pieces we chose out of our designer furniture collection include:

JASPER – Etoile Mirror : Depicting her pendant and chest portion of her outfit.

JASPER – Oxford Fire Screen 3 Panel : For the structure and silhouette of the look.

DECORATIVE CRAFTS – Seaver Cabinet : Shown as her portioned and scalloped details in the shoulder attachment as well as skirt mail.

IRONWARE INTERNATIONAL – Germaine 4 Light Chandelier : Interpreted as the details coming down off of her choker.

Cara Delevingne - Marian Jamieson, Grange, Arteriors, Ironware International

#4. Cara Delevingne

While we are still a bit unsure of the references or symbolism being made in Cara’s Met Gala 2018 outfit, it still stands strong as one of the more unique ensembles of the night. Here are the following pieces we chose for this inspired by the look:

MARIAN JAMIESON – Veronica Taboret : This one of a kind sculpture/stand represent’s the hour glass figure, leading to her strong shoulder points.

GRANGE – Meridienne : This luxurious day bed has class written all over it, a perfect resting place for Delevingne after her parade around the Met Gala.

ARTERIORS HOME – Vickery Chandelier : Cara’s head piece was definitely one of our favorites from the Gala, we found this piece’s resemblance was striking.

IRONWARE INTERNATIONAL – Artemis Fire Screen : The beautiful iron work on the Artemis Fire Screen eloquently depicts the details coming up the entire gown.

Cardi B - Decorative Crafts, Grange, Curated Kravet , Decorative Crafts

#3. Cardi B

Cardi’s high fashion regal angelic look, designed by Jeremy Scott, was another stand out of the night. The Soft cream and gold tones mixed with such over the top embellishments made it hard to look away. The following pieces from our designer furniture collection depicted are:

DECORATIVE CRAFTS – Pia Chandelier : Strong gold regal details in this piece, as well as general shape imitate Cardi’s extravagant silhouette.

GRANGE – Pauline Sofa : The beautiful detailing in the back and bottom of this sofa highly resemble the beads and decor on Cardi B’s couture gown.

CURATED KRAVET – Wise Sculpture : This gold nugget/gem stone inspired center piece glistens similarly to the silk train details trailing her dress.

DECORATIVE CRAFTS – Vinci Mirror : The elegant and glorious head piece atop her head extends to the sky just like this Decorative Crafts mirror.

Lana Del Rey - Ironware International, Decorative Crafts

#2. Lana Del Rey

Landing at our number 2 spot, Lana Del Rey’s Met Gala 2018 look truly blew us away. Starting at the top with her sapphire angel winged beaded halo, to the golden heart punctured with holy daggers, and ending with the elegant golden details crawling up from the bottom of her gown. This was A LOOK. The following are the pieces we chose from our collection:

DECORATIVE CRAFTS – Berici Mirror : Representing the antique gold detailing encompassing the whole dress, holding and tying all the elements together.

DECORATIVE CRAFTS – Lathyrus Screen : On top of the overall color scheme of this screen, the blue birds hand painted really bring us back to Lana’s ethereal blue winged halo.

IRONWARE INTERNATIONAL – Cleo 8 Light Chandelier : The circular antique silver formations in this chandelier feel like they were taken straight from Del Rey’s couture head piece.

DECORATIVE CRAFTS – Ocella Table : The natural swirls and details of this antique gold table mimic the majestic tendrils on the bottom of the ensemble.

Rihanna - Duralee, Schumacher, Decorative Crafts, Jasper

#1. Rihanna 

Are you surprised Rihanna made our number 1 spot? We aren’t. Rihanna as a fashion icon since day one, has always been breaking necks at every show and event she attends. We found her silver, pearl, and white Vatican inspired look to be the most exquisite of all the concepts brought to the Met Gala 2018. The designer furniture pieces we found inspired by the outfit are as follows:

SCHUMACHER – Pillement Mirror : The silver formations encompassing this mirror are holier than thou, and remind us of the stunning embellished details around the whole coat and dress.

DURALEE – Torrey Sofa : This elongated studded white leather sofa parallel the luxurious and lengthy robe adorned on Rihanna’s shoulders.

DECORATIVE CRAFTS – Capi Chandelier : The unique shape of this designer piece simulates the grandiose vibe we get from the Pope-inspired head piece.

JASPER – Eggshell Crackle Dining Chair : This delicate and pure dining chair notes beautiful structure in the details in a way the reminds us of Rihanna’s above the knee dress.
