Not to be outdone, Cardi B was stunned in the giant color dress and also needed the help of many black-dressed boys.
Diva Celine Dion continues to show her playability while wearing fringed dresses with silver wings. Gucci house is trusted by many stars to choose impressive designs to show off in the satirical party night. Creative director Alessandro Michele also became a notable figure when he wore a red suit with classic plaids and head jewelry. Despite the absence of Rihanna, the 2019 Met Gala with the presence of many famous names and costumes could not be more impressive.
