Last night, we watched fashion history unfold as the 2019 Met Gala went underway. This year's exhibition and gala theme come from words from Susan Sontag's Notes on Camp. Camp, by definition, is all about exaggeration, extravagance, and glamour, all while being "dead serious" at the same time. Many celebrities and designers rose to the occasion and came out dressed wonderfully wild. Some of the most fabulous looks reminded us of some of our own designs. Here are 5 of our top looks and their Varaluz inspirations:
Billy Porter rocked "Sun God Realness" wearing a design from The Blonds NYC. Varaluz inspiration:
The over-the-top gold and glitter of the Matrix 3 Tier Chandelier match Billy's wild elegance perfectly.
Charli XCX looking camp-tastic in this bright yellow gown from Jean-Paul Gaultier. Our Varaluz inspiration:
Our Urchin Pendant in Un-Mellow Yellow matches Charli's dress perfectly. Both inspired by oceanic forms, these two bright beauties go hand-in-hand.
Celine Dion danced her way down the pink carpet in a fabulous champagne silvery number by Bob Mackie. She could not have looked more divine! Our Varaluz inspiration:
Our Orbital Collection has all that glitters, just like Celine! Her headpiece that jets out in all directions reminds us of the crystal arms that adorn our fave crystal collection.
Laverne Cox gave us a space-age rendition of vintage Hollywood Glamour in this black and mint number by Chrisitan Siriano. Our Varaluz inspiration:
This Area 51 Pendant in New Bronze is the perfect match to Laverne's mix of old style and new elements. The Area 51 collection is classic Mid-Century Modern with a little bit of UFO flair.
Last but certainly not least, we cannot forget the lovely Katy Perry. She came dressed as a literal chandelier in this Moschino gown and headpiece! We welcome her with open arms to the lighting industry and hope that she might stop by Lightovation in June in this number. Our Varaluz inspiration:
Our Barcelona Collection pairs perfectly with Katy's campy chandelier dress. Adorned with premium heirloom crystal and a Gaudi inspired frame, the Barcelona Collection is fit for a fashion museum.
We hope you enjoyed watching all of the fun red carpet looks unfold this year. We certainly did!
