Goss.ie readers pull out all the stops for #GossAFMetGala challenge

Goss.ie teamed up with top hairstylist Andrew Fitzsimons to judge the best looks


Goss.ie readers pulled out all the stops for our #GossAFMetGala competition.

We teamed up with top Irish hairstylist to the stars Andrew Fitzsimons, to host the ultimate virtual red carpet for what should have been the night of the Met Gala.

While the actual event was postponed due to the current coronavirus pandemic, Goss.ie challenged readers to get glam and dress to the theme ‘About Time’, with one lucky reader walking away with Andrew’s full Primark collection, and a signed brush straight from his LA home.

Goss Boss Ali Ryan judged the competition, alongside Andrew and top LA makeup artist Ash K Holm.


Take a look at some of the amazing entries right here:

Today is usually one of my favourite dates in the fashion calendar to look forward to is the #MetGala with this year being so exciting because it is @metmuseum 150th year. I dream of going to the @metcostumeinstitute when all is safe again and look forward to 2020's postponed #MetGala in October. This year's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration" one I was hugely looking forward to by the talented #AndrewBotlon On this first Monday in May I decided to do my first attempt at self portraits in a classic polka dot dress. I get 1950s Dior vibes from the shape but it is so modern at the same time and I know I will have this for years and wear it in different ways. I missed my girls @makeupandmorebylauren and @_katglammakeup_ for my hair and make up but it took me through another day in lockdown. Have a look at @makeupandmorebylauren to see her @kimkardashian Camp inspired look from last year's #metgala! Off to watch The First Monday in May and look at previous year's #MetGala looks #photography #irishphotography #fashionphotography #GossAFMetGala #womenwhophotograph #selfportrait #metgala #firstmondayinmay #abouttimefashionandduration #canonphoto
