8 Fabulous Moments From The 2018 Met Gala

8 Fabulous Moments From The 2018 Met Gala

The most prestigious event of the year was filled with fashion, love, and so much more.

I'd never pass up an opportunity to discuss a red carpet event, and the Met Gala is the most renowned one of the year. It is known for highlighting iconic fashion styles, and it is a reflection of our changing culture.

This year, the theme was Heavenly Bodies, and the celebrities were serving some LOOKS. Here are eight fabulous Met Gala moments that had me terribly wishing I could've been there.

1. Shawn Mendes fixing Hailey Baldwin's dress.

As one of the many couples to debut their relationship on the red carpet, Mendes and Baldwin couldn't have looked better together. But I think I truly DIED when Shawn took the time to fix Hailey's dress like a true gentleman. Can you say goals?

2. Nick Jonas using the subway as his form of transportation.

A true Jersey boy at heart. The Met Gala is one of the most prestigious events of the year in the celebrity world, if not the most prestigious, so most celebs take their own limos and cars. But not Mr. Jonas! He rode the subway all the way to the party.

Side note: why and HOW is he still single?

3. Blake Lively. That is all.

One word: QUEEN. Lively is always showing everyone up, but this year, she took it to a new level of stunning that we didn't know existed. She is so beyond perfect in that dress that she should be put on display at the Met as a piece of art herself.

4. Lili Reinhart & Cole Sprouse FINALLY confirming those dating rumors.

YOU DON'T KNOW HOW LONG I WAITED FOR THIS. After a long few months of the pair tagging each other in photos and sneakily going on vacations together, they finally debuted their relationship on the Met Gala red carpet, and they couldn't have looked more in love. #Bughead forever!

5. Kendall Jenner living her best life without a child to worry about.

As the only Kardashian to be childless, Kendall was thriving at the Met Gala. She even posted a photograph the next day that was captioned "heavenly hungover." It's safe to say that she's the crazy, fun aunt in the Kardash family.

6. Gigi Hadid and Selena Gomez hugging it out.

Girls night! Neither of these two brought dates and took the time to pose with each other, proving that you don't need a man to get dressed up and look absolutely fabulous.

7. Travis Scott gazing at Kylie Jenner.

Because of all of the Kardashian drama that goes on, I am so happy to see that this duo is still going strong after the birth of their baby girl. Here's hoping they're in it for the long haul for baby Stormi!

8. Hailee Steinfeld giving us a look we never knew we needed.

Definitely the most under-rated look of the night. Hailee Steinfeld is one of those celebrities you forget about, but she is always showing off an unforgettable look. She turns simple outfits into something truly fabulous.

They say living in the world of a celebrity isn't as glamorous as it seems, but I wouldn't mind getting a personal invite to the Met Gala and having photographers snap pictures of me. Sigh, maybe one day it will happen. Until then, I can't wait to see what looks everyone pulls out for next year's Gala.

5 Songs to Add to Your Playlist This Month

Spring into finals week (and the summer) by "cleaning up" your playlist


Here are some fun, fresh new tracks to check out as you finish out the rest of the school year and help you get out of your "music comfort zone!"

“Patience” by Tame Impala 

Genre: Electronic/Alternative

Tame Impala FINALLY released new music (!!), and this track is absolutely stunning. With frontrunner Kevin Parker staying on brand with the band's psychedelic, seemingly ethereal style, it sounds like a combination of 70s soft rock and waves of modern-day electronica, with Parker's voice drifting in and out in a kind of otherworldly, mellowed-out manner.

“Harmony Hall” by Vampire Weekend 

Genre: Alternative/Indie Pop

Vampire Weekend is also releasing an album, entitled "Father of the Bride", on May 3rd. From the looks of it, this track relates to the theme of marriage/weddings present in the album's title, and it is a fun, upbeat song that I have been listening to a lot in the morning as I'm getting ready for class! Ezra Koenig's voice is so unique and can cover a broad range, and I highly recommend listening to some of the band's other work as well ("Step" from their 2013 release "Modern Vampires of the City" is one of my all-time favorite songs!).

“Ready to Let Go” by Cage the Elephant 

Genre: Alternative/Alternative Rock

So many great artists are (finally) releasing new albums this year, and Cage the Elephant falls into this category. This track is an absolute banger and doesn't stray much from the band's style in that it includes a lot of loud guitar and dynamic vocals. Like Vampire Weekend, Cage the Elephant has been around since the early 2000s, and I highly recommend checking out some of their earlier work as well (big fan of their most recent album, actually!)

“Apple Orchard” by Beach House 

Genre: Indie/Electronic

Beach House is one of my favorite bands of all time, as I find a kind of an ethereal, beautiful sadness in the dreamy style of instrumentalist Alex Scally and lucid vocals of singer Victoria Legrand. This track is from their 2006 self-titled debut and is probably one of my favorite songs they've ever released. The lyrics are poetic and perfect for the post-finals enjoyment of spring weather, in that they preach relaxation and restfulness, and the song's electronic rhythms echo the essence of spring as well. If you like this song, then I highly recommend checking out the band's other albums as well (Depression Cherry is one of my favorite albums of all time).

“April Come She Will” by Simon & Garfunkel 

Genre: 60s Pop

No spring playlist is complete without a little Simon & Garfunkel! This song is a classic, its timeless, poetic lyrics capturing the epitome of the coming of spring and all its glory. In fact, I consider the entire album (entitled Sound of Silence) to be perfect for the pleasantness and feelings of renewal/natural revitalization associated with the coming months, so be sure to give it a listen if you haven't heard it before!
