Tiaras & Baseball Caps?

Here we have a traditional and not so traditional bridal trend with Vogue’s Anna Wintour wearing a royal tiara and Kylie Jenner wearing a white baseball with a veil which not everyone was loving. One user under the comments of Kylie’s look posted by Met Gala’s official Instagram page reads: “my expectations were much higher…” while another user says: “the baseball cap ????”. Yikes!

For the trendsetter brides looking for a blue-hued gown, take inspiration from Lily James, Imaan Hammam and Quannah Chasinghorse. Lily wore an all-over Versace dress while Imaan and Quannah went for ethereal and flowy numbers.
