H&M Debuts Bold & Sparkly Met Gala-Inspired Looks At A Fraction Of The Price
By Izza Sofia, 10 May 2018
Celebrities who arrived at the Met Gala event were dressed in lust-worthy couture gowns created by big luxury brands such as Versace, Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci.
Not every dress, however, was designed by a luxury house. Fashion retailer H&M created six stunning dresses for the event that were worn by Olivia Munn, Jasmine Sanders, Alek Wek, Lili Reinhart, Kiersey Clemons and Luka Sabbat.
Sanders stunned the crowd with a voluminous gold metallic gown complete with soft drapes and a dramatic skirt. Munn wore a gold dress with plunging neckline made of gold chainmail, which pushes the theme of the event into somewhere “modern and fresh.”
If you love any of the dresses worn by the celebrities, you are in luck as H&M is releasing ‘The Gala’ collection, which carries exclusive pieces inspired by the dresses worn during the Met Gala.
H&M also promises that these pieces will be affordable, with the sparkly gold dress similar to what Munn had worn going at £399.99 (US$544). Those who prefer the metallic dress worn by Hailey Baldwin at the Pre-Met Party can purchase H&M’s version for £119.99 (US$163).

This isn’t the first time H&M has launched a more wallet-friendly version of a highly-coveted dress. It previously rolled out a US$210 replica of Kate Middleton’s gorgeous wedding gown. The brand has also debuted a modest fashion line full of bright accents and elegant silhouettes that you can discover here.
