The star fraternity descended upon the red carpet of the coveted fashion fundraiser, Met Gala 2016 on 2 May in New York. Epitomising a futuristic theme for the year, the Costume Institute Ball titled, Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, saw all possible fashion attires that explored the relationship between traditional and machine-made clothes.
Haute couture on the red carpet was further accentuated with heavy metallic accents, sleek hair-dos, structured and deconstructed fabric patterns, and some out-of-the-blue wild designer gowns.
All in all, it was a season of a lot of firsts, quite refreshingly for the mothers-to-be, who without any hesitation pulled off some killer ensembles as they showed off their baby bump. In the words of Jessica Parker, "Sometimes you get an A and sometimes, it's a pass-or-fail situation."
Here are the A-listers who efficiently made the cut, not to mention with their baby bumps:
Emily Blunt pulled off her glamorous look in an electric blue Micheal Kors Collection gown to show off her growing baby bump. Although The Huntsman actress, who is pregnant for the second time with husband John Krasinski, seemed to be glowing with joy, she anyways decided to pair her glittering outfit with Forevermark diamonds on the red carpet. A neat bun added to the bright yet sleek look of the actress during the Met Gala.
Blunt's pregnant girlfriend Olivia Wilde shared the pink, white, and red carpet of the Met Gala 2016 in a coordinated Michael Kors gown with studded embellishments. The 32-year-old's black outfit accentuated her swelling belly while showing off just the right places. She paired her outfit with a metallic choker and gunmetal clutch in sync with the theme of the event.
Hollywood actress Blake Lively, who is expecting her second child with Ryan Reynolds decided to go all peachy and floral in a floor-grazing Burberry gown. While the corset top made her appear slim, her sweeping hand-dyed cape rendered an elegant appeal. Red pout and dangling earrings enhanced her feminine charm in the Burberry outfit on the red carpet.
Clad in a black Marc Jacobs dress, Scandal star Kerry Washington made heads turn with her thigh-high slit. The mom-to-be debuted her baby bump on the red carpet. If not for the pair of sheer gloves by Marc Jacobs, her ensemble would be lacking much of its drama.
