Fashion Friday – MET Gala Bridal Inspirations

Solange was a hit once again on the red carpet!

I was looking forward to recapping the MET Gala on Triple B this year like I did here, here and here. I enjoy dissecting the red carpet trends that easily translate to the world of bridal. But this year I was completely underwhelmed. Womp, womp. The MET Gala normally gets even the most jaded fashion folks excited however 2013 left most confused. The tricky theme, Punk: Chaos to Couture was only acknowledged by a select few. So, Triple B is mixing things up and only highlighting the top three style trends from this year’s MET Gala. Here goes:

Solange Knowles

The youngest Knowles gal, clad in a Kenzo gown, rocked the MET red carpet again this year with a bangin’ fro! And this look can be pulled off by brides, too. She wore a nude lip, strong brow and a smoky eye. Somehow it all works. BRIDAL TAKEAWAY: There are exceptions but generally speaking, makeup artists agree that if you do a bold lip color, you should balance it with a subtle eye and vice versa.

Chanel Iman

Top model Chanel Iman joined Solange in effortlessly displaying that chignons and updos aren’t the only acceptable hair options for formal occasions. She wowed in a striped J.Mendel number and wore cornrows alongside her ombre hair. Ca-yute! Oh and Chanel had her digits pampered for the big night by Triple B friend, Lisa Logan.

BRIDAL TAKEAWAY: An old-school hair style can be incorporated into a current one for a style that is surprisingly modern.

Jennifer Lopez

Jenny from the Block stunned as usual, this time in an animal print Michael Kors gown. The form-fitting silhouette has long sleeves and a crew neckline but the open back is anything but quiet. Ladies, stay on the lookout for gowns with similiar design details this fall based on what I observed during Bridal Fashion Week. BRIDAL TAKEAWAY: Strapless and v-neck aren’t necessarily prerequisites for a sexy wedding dress. The back is one of the sexiest (yet forgotten) parts of a woman’s body.

    1. I now have a girl crush on Chanel.

      J. Lo still looks great. I see why these young guys are chasing. Solange is working that fro. Not too many can pull it off the way she did.

    3. Bridgette Bridgette says:

      @Nadia – There’s no shame in girl crushes at Triple B! I have a couple, too. ;-)

      @EJ – Yes, JLo popped out twins later in the game (which apparently makes the snapback harder to achieve) but she still has a body that rivals most in the game @ 40+. Solange’s fro is EVERYTHING!
