The theme of this year’s Met Gala was “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology”. Apparently, in the eyes of no matter fashion designers or event goers, technology equals superpowers! On the first Monday of May, the huge event became a massive costume party of “the Avengers”. We listed top 5 most-superheroes looks for you. I suggest the styling team from Marvel could get inspiration from the list.

Not the end, scoll down!
Of course, not everyone dressed like characters from the Marvel, someone chose to be the character from another cutter animation series: the Simpsons! Look at Lupita Nyongo!

From my point of view, fashion with the help of technology should have showcased more multi-functional and interesting design pieces, instead of those costumes we already saw many times. Hopefully, next year’s Met Gala would focus on the theme more than the superficial appearances.
