The Met Gala is THE fashion event of the year. It has almost the same status as fashion week. The invited celebs dress up in the most spectacular outfits: some are amazing and spot on, others are odd but in a good way, and others are just odd. It's a true fashion spectacle and watching the red carpet dresses is like eating candy for every fashion illustrator.
These are some of my favorite outfits of the 2017 Met Gala: Hailey Baldwin, dressed in House of Herrera, Lily Rose Depp dressed in Chanel, Lily Collins dressed in Giambattista Valli, Zendaya in Dolce & Gabbana and Blake Lively in Atelier Versace.
It was not easy to chose which of these gowns would make it to my drawing table and would be turned into a fashion illustration. I chose two dresses to draw. My choice fell on Blake Lively and Hailey Baldwin. Their dresses are true eye candy and perfect for a glamorous fashion illustration!
Here you can see the comparison. As a fashion illustrator, I always try to catch the essence of the person and the dress in the drawing but give it my own twist.
