2017 Met Gala: Lily Aldridge and Salma Hayek Make Statements in Balenciaga ‘Knife’ Boots

The 2017 Met Gala celebrated the launch of the “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between” exhibit with an avant-garde theme to celebrate. As part of the lead-up to the event, A-list celebrities navigated the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s famous steps while clad in their best statement-making garments. So far, we’ve seen bold fashion statements from Nicki Minaj, Halle Berry, Priyanka Chopra, Katy Perry, Blake Lively and Solange Knowles.

Salma Hayek and Lily Aldridge both made statements of their own in striking thigh-high boots at the event. While most attendees opted for platform sandals and towering pumps, these two stunners walked up the steps in colorful Balenciaga “Knife” boots that you can find at Net-A-Porter and Matches Fashion.

The 31-year-old model opted to wear a custom white Ralph Lauren gown, which featured sexy cut-out details and a circular cape. Her one-shoulder dress also had a sweeping train and a thigh-high slit, which showed off her bold red Balenciaga boots. Lily finished her show-stopping look with straight hair, a pink veil, neutral makeup and Bulgari diamonds.

Salma exuded sensual elegance in head-to-toe Balenciaga at the star-studded fashion gala. She flaunted her enviable curves in a sleeveless black dress, which featured a V-shaped neckline and subtle ruched detailing. The ribbon waist detail emphasized her hourglass figure, while the flirty thigh-high slit displayed her electric blue boots. She completed her ensemble with a sleek updo, glossy nude lips, a metallic clutch and stunning emerald green jewels.
