It may seem difficult to find a silver lining to 2020. The year, only two thirds of the way through, has brought us every sort of natural disaster, political upheaval and a pandemic to boot. But one thing is for sure: creativity hasn’t waned during 2020. If anything the Coronavirus quarantine has unearthed talents from crafty folks all over the world, many inspired by Instagram challenges.
Best of The Met Gala Challenge
This year there’ve been challenges issued by museums to recreate their artworks, a challenge from Duck Brand to create prom dresses from duct tape, and our favorite, initiated by Vogue and Billy Porter – a challenge to recreate gowns from the most outrageous red carpet show ever, the Met Gala.
Tagged with #metgalachallenge talented men and women have taken it upon themselves to recreate their favorite fashions worn by celebrities to the annual ball put on by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Known for featuring the most outrageous and innovative red carpet fashions, students, up and coming designers, housewives and others have used everything from aluminum foil and saran wrap to construction paper and scotch tape to emulate their favorite gowns. More ambitious ones actually used fabric. We’ve pulled together some of those that impressed us the most from Instagram to share with you.
It almost seems unfair to include the great recreations by mom @sanja_nestorovic_ because she’s so damn good and has done so many. Here are a few of her terrific ones:
Despite the fact that JLo didn’t wear her famous Versace dress to the Met Gala, the revealing gown was also expertly recreated by Sanja Kosovska Mitrovica (shown below).
