The annual Met Gala was held in New York City on Monday night, April 6th, with this year highlighting the Metropolitan Museum of Art's spring collection, "PUNK: Chaos to Couture." We were so amazed by how many celebrities got into the theme!
It was hard to pick, but two of our favorite looks of the night were worn by Nina Dobrev and Kristen Stewart. We ultimately settled on these two celebs because we loved that they both rocked jumpsuits - it must be a vampire thing! Check out what they wore below and how you can get similar looks for your next formal event. If you want a stand-out look for prom, these rompers are certainly a perfect option!
Nina looked all vamped out in her black lace jumpsuit! We loved how the feminine detailing of the lace and tulle overskirt was offset by the black leather harness - so punk! The Vampire Diaries star looked extra fierce with her dramatic eyeliner and mohawk-inspired hairdo. We're so used to her cute, girly look on The Vampire Diaries (except when she's playing Katherine, of course!), that we were amazed by her high-fashion, dark look.
One of our jumpsuits for this year, Claudine for Alyce style 2232, immediately reminded us of Nina's look! Just like Nina's jumpsuit, it features beautiful lace and sheer for a chic look, a sweetheart neckline, and a long tulle overskirt.
Kristen is always one to wear edgy outfits, but the red jumpsuit she wore to the 2013 Met Ball may be her edgiest yet! We loved how the lace detailing gave it a chic look, contrasting well with the red color and unique curvature of the pantsuit for a fashionable punk vibe. The Twilight Saga star's smoky red eye make-up was the perfect accent to finish her punked-out look.
There's two jumpsuits that remind us of Kristen's look: Claudine for Alyce style 2147 and Black White Red by Mac Duggal style 85172R.
We love Claudine for Alyce style 2147 because it incorporates the pretty lace, long sleeves, and red of Kristen's look. The shorts style, rather than Kristen's pants look, makes it that much more sexy and more appropriate for spring and summer months. Best yet, this romper just went on sale! It used to be $450, but is now $220. There's not many sizes left, though, so make sure to order it soon if this style is for you!
Black White Red by Mac Duggal style 85172R is perfect if you want to rock Kristen's all red jumpsuit look. It's an all sequin romper with a detachable tulle skirt.
Rompers have definitely been a popular prom choice this year, so it was exciting to see the look be such a statement piece on the red carpet of the 2013 Met Gala! If you want to stick with the traditional dress for prom, the romper look is also perfect for bringing some glam to after prom. Best yet, with the rompers that include detachable skirts, you can wear it as a dress for prom, and take the skirt off for after prom for a completely different look.
