All The Irish Stars That Rocked The Met Gala Red Carpet

We love to see it!

Ah The Met Gala, the first Monday of May did not dissappoint this year as it made the end of our long weekend that little bit easier.

As we sat on our couches in pj’s and judged the outfits on the biggest night in fashion, we were delighted to see so many Irish representation on the iconic stairs.

This year’s theme was ‘In American: An Anthology of Fashion’, with the dress code being ‘gilded glamour, white tie’ which some followed and some respectfully ignored, as you have every year.

Here are all our favourite Irish looks from the night!

We have to start with Nicola Coughlan who gave us Lady Whistledown chic but X100 as her pink and black babydoll ballgown was covered in floating feathers.The dress was designed by London-Irish designer Richard Quinn and her hair and makeup was flawless, what a MET debut! We felt really proud as we saw her step out on to the carpet, as if we were old friends. It’s kind of a theme for Irish famous people to feel like you grew up dowm the road from them, right?

Humble as always, Nicola gave her followers a rare insight into the party behind the doors at the top of the stairs. In the video on her stories we saw Lizzo and Anderson Paak dancing while Nicola looks like she’s having a ‘pinch me’ moment, writing, “Good at times like this to remember I used to work in a Spar.” We love her so much!

Congratulations Nicola it’s all so well deserved.

Paul Mescal attended the prestigious event with his rumoured fiancée Phoebe Bridgers (although there was no sign of an engagement ring) and his Normal People co-star Daisy Edgar-Jones.

A moustached Paul wore a black suit complete with black shirt and what looked like a sparkling broach pinned on. His girlfriend Phoebe wore a gorgeous beaded Jonathan Simkhai gown while Daisy wore an Oscar de la Renta flapper style dress. The trio looked perfect together!

A post shared by Jessie Buckley (@thejessiebuckley)

Another Irish celeb who sported a moustache on the carpet was, Jessie Buckley wore one of her own! Yes, The Lost Daughter star drew on a fake moustache to complete her look, which was a pin-stripe Schiaparelli suit with swirls on the lapels, with a matching tie and a hat. Looking ultra cool regardless of how *interesting* the outfit sounds on paper, Jessie pulled it off!

The stars mingled with Hollywood’s finest on the night, and we can only imagine what it would be like to be a fly-on-the-wall inside the Met that night… We are hoping Nicola partied with Kim Kardashian, the friendship we need to see transcend from online to IRL.

Here’s hoping for some behind-the-scenes stories soon!
