Met Gala 2016 Highlights: Check Out Claire Danes' Glow-In-The-Dark Gown
That yearly event of glitz and glamour at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, one cannot help with their "oohs" and "aaahs" over the unique creations worn by famous celebrities. At this year's Met Gala, Claire Danes literally lit up at the prestigious event.
According to Vanity Fair, attendees were also in for a surprise as Claire Danes showed up at the venue in a bus and were in for another surprise when her Zac Posen gown glowed in the dark as well. The sky-blue ball gown was a beautiful hand-made creation by the actress' longtime friend-designer. Made of organza and dolled up with fiber optics, the elegant gown showed off its sheer beauty the moment Danes stepped inside.
And because of the large skirt, Zac Posen arranged for Danes to arrive at the event in the rather unconventional mode of transport. Danes also stated having to stand up during the entire trip going to the Met Gala. She also had to be escorted by her husband, actor Hugh Dancy, and designer Zac Posen up the escalator as she walked up the red carpet in the glowy dress.
USA Today also reported on the Marchesa dress worn by Karolína Kurková, which designers Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman referred to as a "cognitive dress." The fashion designers also stated partnering with IBM Watson on the technical aspects of the LED-embedded dress.
Sure, many other famous celebrities in their equally unique outfits had their own take on the theme for the 2016 Met Gala, "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," Claire Danes' ball gown was the clear standout of the night, says News AU. Fashion critics and media circuits have been all over social media giving a solid commendation to the Cinderella-esque gown. Zac Posen's high-tech creation perfectly showcased the Gala's theme of tech-inspired futuristic fashion and Claire Danes' simple, yet elegant coif provided the classic harmonious balance to the entire look.
