Who ripped up the red-carpet rule book at the Met Gala?
Wearing the pants

Since the red carpet was rolled out at the beginning of time, it has seemed only acceptable to wear feminine gowns on it. Well, no more.

Now, tailored trousers are more than acceptable – and we’re even on board with the ‘pant gown’ – AKA a gown paired with sleek trousers.  

On Monday Amal Clooney ditched her barrister robes for a statement-making trousers and dress combo as she assumed her duties as a co-host of the 2018 Met Gala in New York City.

It was a direction she had never gone down before, and we're so glad she did. The stunning ensemble by Richard Quinn - whose brand only launched in 2016 - exuded floral and metallic excellence. And if the trousers weren't enough, the dress also boasted the most luxurious train.

Meanwhile, hubby George Clooney went for his classic black and white tuxedo look, and when asked by reporters where their twins, Ella and Alexander, were for the evening, reportedly quipped, "They're under the dress." Tee-hee.

Also championing the trouser was model Kendall Jenner, who walked the carpet in one of Virgil Abloh’s Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh designs. Delicious.

Finally, rapper P Diddy’s long-term girlfriend Cassie Ventura sported a black Thom Browne suit to contrast with Diddy’s all-white ensemble. She accessorised with Chopard earrings and Sarah Jane Wild jewellery.

Ladies, we applaud your individuality.
