Think you could pull off one of the designer dresses from last night’s Met Gala? Here’s your chance.
Today, luxury e-tailer Moda Operandi – a major sponsor of this year’s Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibit – launched a special trunkshow of 14 of the most wearable (though not so much affordable) looks as seen on the red carpet. The good news: Each style is available in a variety of sizes, so you don’t have to be a 00 to shop. The bad news: This is a pre-sale, which means no markdowns. So if you’re dying to have Kate Bosworth’s flashy pink party dress, get ready to pony up $26,000.
Read on to find out which Met Gala dresses are up for grabs.
Bosworth’s frock is among the priciest pieces on the list. Olivia Wilde’s Calvin Klein Collection satin bandeau dress can be yours for $10,000 (Jason Sudeikis not included), while Emma Watson’s Jason Wu cut-out gown is a more affordable – more affordable by fashion industry standards, that is – $4,495. Also available; Taylor Swift’s J. Mendel dress, and Dakota Fanning’s Rodarte number. Click here to see all of the Met Gala dresses.
Kim Kardashian’s floral Givenchy is not available, but if you fancied Sarah Jessica Parker’s Phillip Tracey mohawk topper, get the look with the New York Vintage headdress from the Moda Operandi’s punk-inspired capsule collection.
