The Met Gala is the event of all events when it comes to fashion... one may basically call it the prom of the fashion industry. Each year has its own theme, and the 2016 Met Gala theme was Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. The idea behind the theme was to explore and appreciate how technology has played a significant role in the fashion industry.
A lot of the celebrity gals who walked the 2016 Met Gala Red Carpet wore gorgeous sparkly, silver gowns, giving an ode to robots and machinery. But, one celebrity literally sparkled at the Met Gala: Claire Danes. The "tech white tie" dress code may have been a little difficult to interpret, but Claire wore the theme perfectly with an original Zac Posen gown that lit up with lights within the dress!
How gorgeous is that dress?! Not only did the actress get a perfect Cinderella look, but it had such a special, unique touch to it when the lights go down. The effect reminded us of not only technology, but The Girl On Fire, Katniss', dress from The Hunger Games. The lights didn't show on the red carpet, but Zac Posen posted plenty of pics and videos on his Instagram account. Check out one of the videos he posted below.
Manic moments!! Zacposen #metgala #clairedanes

While you may not be able to get that custom illumination, rocking the classic blue ball gown Cinderella look is one that we love for prom. While there are so many gorgeous strapless blue prom gowns to choose from, one of our favorites to get the Claire Danes Met Gala 2016 dress is Fiesta 56284.
Fiesta style 56284 will definitely have you dazzling the crowd, just like Claire's dress. The tulle ball gown features a fully beaded strapless bodice and sequins sprinkled down the skirt, so it even has sparkle like the custom Zac Posen gown!
If you're looking to shine like a diamond at your prom or quince, definitely take a cue from Claire Dane's Met Gala dress.
