Planned for May 4 at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art in New York, like so many other events, the 2020 Met Gala was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
To pay homage to the extravagant spectacle of this highlight of the fashion calendar, Vogue and actor Billy Porter (who has issued several fashion challenges before this) teamed up to launch the #MetGalaChallenge, which invited internet users to recreate with any means at hand their favourite outfits from the gala's previous years.
The challenge has once again drawn attention to the seemingly unlimited creativity of fashion enthusiasts on social networks.
Rihanna, Beyonce, Celine Dion, Kim Kardashian and Jared Leto are among the many celebrities that have marked the history of the Met Gala with exceptional and eccentric outfits. These red-carpet sensations have been the subject of a seemingly endless stream of stunningly varied reinterpretations on social networks.
Rising to the occasion, young and old alike demonstrated immense creativity in reproducing these exceptional outfits using objects, fabrics and other materials found lying around in their homes.
The often astonishing results of their efforts are an apt reminder of the enormous wealth of creative talent on the web. Here is a look at the five most beautiful homemade outfits for the #MetGalaChallenge. – AFP Relaxnews
