Lala Anthony showed off her killer curves and cleavage in a dramatic red plunging gown as she walked the red carpet of the 2016 Met Gala in New York on Monday. The television personality looked stunning in the gown which was in varying shades of red by Lebanese designer Nicolas Jebran. But, interestingly her gown was all about technology — it was a gravity defying gown totally on-point with the gala’s Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology theme.
The 36-year-old star was accompanied by husband and NBA star Carmelo Anthony. Lala’s gown featured Swarovski crystal- embellished detailing all over and a mini cape like shoulder accents that featured side cut-outs. Her hair was styled into a slicked back tight ponytail.
She accessorized with a hairband that had diamond detailing, she also wore small diamond stud earrings. Lala complemented her look with matchy make-up and flaunted her deep red manicure. She finished her look with Jimmy Choo heels.
Lala’s stylist César DeLeön Ramirez is responsible for her knockout look at one of fashion’s biggest nights. Her husband, meanwhile, looked dapper in white suit and shirt paired with black trousers and matching tie. Lala dished before her red carpet appearance that she “definitely can’t breathe” and “definitely can’t go to the bathroom.”
Moreover, she kept her dewy skin intact by carrying blotting paper with her. Lala took to Instagram and thanked her designer for the gown.

Taylor Swift pulled off an edgy futuristic look coupled with gothic vibes in a silver minidress. The singer wore silver, snakeskin minidress with cutout waist detailing and a tiered ruffle skirt which was by Louis Vuitton. She paired the look with below-the-knee caged peep toe high heels and a dark red lipstick to add a gothic feel.
Taylor rocked her new platinum blonde bob, accessorized with geometric rings and deep red mani and pedi. The 26-year-old singer’s head-turning look this year is a far cry from her previous Met Gala designs as well as a bold departure from her usually feminine, sultry look.
Designer Diane von Furstenberg gave major hair envy as she shared pictures from behind-the-scenes prep for the biggest night of fashion that showed off her exotic choice of accessories. DVF teased fans with her signature coif that was done up into a voluminous faux afro, adorning it with technicolor butterflies on Instagram. The iconic designer paired her outlandish headgear with a sparkling black and white column gown.
The theme of the 2016 Met Gala witnessed stars wearing futuristic designs, with metallic palettes, architectural silhouettes and sequins. Kim Kardashian West and her husband Kanye West walked the red carpet together. Kim was a "blingy, sexy robot" and her rapper husband sported blue contact lens.
