There was no shortage of big, bold fashion at the 2019 Met Gala

Although we saw a plethora of trends of all different shapes and colors, there were a few that continuously popped up on the pink carpet over and over. And would you believe us if we said they're actually wearable in real life? 

Ahead, discover three extravagant trends from the Met Gala you can wear sans a red carpet. 


The statement trend took flight on the grand steps of the Met. Kendall and Kylie Jenner opted for bright orange and lavender marabou Versace dresses, while Cardi B took an edgier, dramatic route in a stunning deep red gown by Thom Browne that featured a three-meter, ripple-effect train, adorned with plumage. Riverdale star Camila Mendes looked like she stepped out of a storybook in a Prabal Gurung yellow feathered dress accented with a light blue sash.

Monochrome dress and eye makeup were a popular choice for glam among the star attendees. Emma Roberts wowed in a frothy, voluminous baby pink tulle confection by Giambattista Valli Couture. Her makeup artist, Nikki DeRoest, coordinated her eyes to the gown by using a similar peachy pink blush from Chantecaille all over the lids and on the lower lash line.

Makeup artist Ash Holm also opted for the matchy-matchy look by sweeping an orange blush color from Cargo Cosmetics on de Betak's lids and lower lash line, accented by a teal blue liner. The fashion girl's Met Gala dress will be available to purchase on Mango.com as part of its Gala Collection on June 3.
