Mother’s Day is your day, but there is no question that the guest of honor is your sweet mini. Who else loves manicures and brunches with mom more than the beautiful girl who gave you your official mama title? If you’re treating yourself and your bestie to a new look this Mother’s Day, consider the recent 2017 Met Gala for inspiration. We’ve matched these red carpet styles with designer kids dresses that are playful, structured, modern, and oh-so-feminine.
This year’s honoree was the “Oracle of Fashion,” designer Rei Kawakubo, the first living designer to be honored with a show at the Met’s Costume Institute since 1983. A-list celebs strutted the red carpet of the opening gala decked in costumes created by world-renowned designers to honor Kawakubo’s unique style.
“Many designers work with the goal of making women look good. Ms. Kawakubo seems to work with the goal of making women look again,” writes The New York Times.
Here are our picks for girl’s fashion that were designed for a head-turning ‘second glance.’
6 Met Gala Inspired Looks for Your Daughter
1. Lily Collins in Giambattista Valli Haute Couture
“The starlet tapped into her dark side and showed off an edge to her girly side.”
Le Petit Tom, Black Lace Pink Tutu Dress. The pink tutu is classically girly but, like the red carpet look, the black lace bodice and frayed edges of the tutu add an undeniable edge to the look.
2. Zendaya in Dolce & Gabbana
“The actress made an all-over tropical print, full ball skirt and mussed afro feel effortless.”
Pan Con Chocolate, Leire Pink Printed Dress. With a bold and exotic flower-and-fowl print, fine fabric, and the graceful elegance of a full skirt, as with Zendaya in Dolce, this dress from Pan Con Chocolate calls for little else.
3. Lily James in Burberry
“The young actress’ look felt equal parts darling and dark beauty –and wowed from every angle.”
Anne Kurris, Girl’s Skirt Gold and Silver Polkadot. The modern, structured silhouette and playful print of the Burberry gown are echoed in this equally darling skirt by Anne Kurris.
4. Cara Delevingne in Chanel Haute Couture
“The newly bald model and actress proved that a killer beauty look doesn’t require long locks –and that she can do no wrong in sleek evening suiting.”
Bang Bang Copenhagen, Black Dress with Stripes. The clean lines of Chanel’s evening suit are reflected in this adorable tux dress from Bang Bang Copenhagen. Here we trade in a belt for a playful turquoise bow tie.
5. Lily Rose Depp in Chanel Haute Couture
“The Chanel cosmetics and fragrance face brought some much needed color to the (blue and white) carpet.”
Suoak New York, Pink Organza Dress. Your little lady will bring some much needed color to Mother’s Day brunch with this perfectly rosy number from Suoak New York. Like the Chanel piece, it features a fitted drop waist and a feminine flourish in the form of the contrasting fabric layered over the clean modern look of organza for added texture.
6. Rihanna in Comme des Garcons
“Rihanna is always one to dress in theme, and won the night as one of the only attendees to wear the honored designer.”
Angel’s Face, Blooming Lovely Pettiskirt. This gown from Comme des Garcons is a favorite among fashion connoisseurs and little girls alike. While nothing can compare to Rihanna’s show-stopping number, this flowing pettiskirt is bursting with energy and mimics the flowery blossoms of the Comme gown. This piece from Angel’s Face is sure to delight the tiny diva who wears it.
