MET GALA 2015 ROUND-UP

“CHINA: THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS”

 

1. Too much showgirl. I thought what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas?? 

2. Too much boring. Boring pisses me off at awards shows. Boring makes me *stabby* at the Met Gala.

Or…….. in the words of my sister:  “Not enough crazy shit.”     Truth.

Beyonce, Givenchy

Girl.  Put some clothes on.

Zhang Ziyi, Carolina Herrera

Ahhhh, a palate cleanser of elegance.

Oh, good. More Pink Prada Problems.

Olivia Wilde. No.

Kerry Washington. No.

And did Lily Pulitzer have a hand in this?

Reese Witherspoon, Jason Wu

Look. Wear some trite to the Met Gala?

Like, oh say, a plain red strapless?               

You’re banned. For life.

From *everything*.                                                                                                                                                                                                     

Zendaya, Fausto Puglisi

My favorite.

Sienna Miller, Thakoon

SJP, H&M

Eh. I mean, ok, it’s bringing the crazy so there’s that. But, as much as I despise SJP, I give her due props for the way she usually brings it at the Met Gala. She goes for it. And she went for it here, but it’s not terribly attractive and reads as costume. Sure, the party is for the The Met’s Costume Institute, but that doesn’t make it a masquerade ball. 

(P.s. Thanks to all outlets noting that this is actually *custom* H&M. Because, y’know, otherwise I was going to be confused and go look for it at the mall.)

SJP H&M

 Fan Bing Bing, Christopher Bu

And, finally…..the one that made me stare, slack-jawed.

It fits the theme while being artful and fabulous, but not costume-y. It’s %1,000 Met Gala-worthy. It’s elegant but full of BAM.

The cape evokes stained glass (“through the looking glass,” indeed!)  and Fan’s carrying the look with the air of resplendence it calls for and the “I got this” ease that great style is made of.
