And the Superbowl of fashion has happened! It’s been over a day since this year’s MET Gala and I’m still not over from the outfits I saw that made me say “yay” and “nay”. The theme was “Heavenly Bodies and the Catholic Imagination”. This year’s by far my favourite one as I got watch it live and enjoy the opulence I’ve seen in celebs’s looks. The past MET galas have been “meh” for me. It lacked glamour and luxury, two things I’m in desperate need of in my life right now!
It’s a Versace kind of night – everyone seems to be wearing Versace. It’s a Ver-sayce. No, it’s Versace. But before I start roasting my saints and sinners aka my best dressed list who went with the theme and my worst dressed, let me just say that even if I’m a Catholic, I’d still say that the world is so much better without religion. And as once a church-goer myself, I’d say that the worst and most terrible people can be found at the church. Am I right or amarayt? Also, I thought that only a few stood out to send a message about the issues that the Church is in quarrel with like oppression on women, the LGBTQ+, anti-abortion campaigns and divorce, child abuse and a lot more; rather than just blatantly showing the “Catholic is cool” message.
Enough with the political side of things, let’s get going with the glamour! I am someone that in loves with glamour and luxury and is not one bit afraid of it.
Janelle Monáe in Marc Jacobs – I always love myself a black and white lewk with a literal hint of sparkle on it! Bonus points for dressing like you’re going to a mass at St. Paul’s!
Ariana Grande in Vera Wang – despite fashion being considered as a form of art, it takes dressing on another level when you literally wear an art.. by Michelangelo no less. Not bad for her first Met Gala!
Anne Hathaway in Valentino Haute Couture – Anne Hathaway. Valentino. Red. All of my favourite things in one. An instant spot in my best-dressed list!!!
Bee Shaffer in Valentino – honestly does she ever dress badly? I never would have thought that she’d dress very well despite saying that she’s not interested in fashion on ‘The September Issue’. I haveer seen her in a tragic lewk in her red carpets. Brava!
Zendaya in Versace – This is what Joan of Arc would look like if she was invited to the Met Gala. Except she’d be more butch! Zendaya is just divine.
Rihanna in Margiela – what’s the Met Gala without her? I mean!!! This Pope outfit is just jaw dropping. Living for this lewk!
I don’t know who she is and whoever she’s wearing. The cut-outs aren’t just working for me. I’m rather getting space vibes. Meh.
Emma Stone in Louis Vuitton – I dunno about you but I think this would work better on a theme that shows the Navies of the world with. Not going with the theme at all.
Kris Jenner – I don’t know who she’s wearing. While I love myself a momager who’d tell me that I’m doing amazing while shooting for a sexy magazine, this just made her gain an extra 50 lbs. I wonder how many muppets died for the skirt part though.
Emilia Clarke in (what I believe is Dolce Alta Moda) – one word. Basic. Next!!
Shailene Woodley in Ralph Lauren – ever bought something online that’s actually a totally different shit when it arrives? This is that. Imagine buying Zendaya’s outfit and it arrives like this. The horror! Cute ruffles though, darling.
I don’t know who she is and what she does but props for wearing this LGBTQ+ outfit as a “fuck you!” to the very religious bigots who think what they’re doing is an act of kindness!!!
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen – my fashion icons! In theme or not, they’d always be in my best-dressed list. They can wear whatever they want because they’re richer than you!!
Alexander Skarsgård – my Swedish husband can even wear clothes made of potato sack and I’d still sit on his face and ride him til sunrise! Sex on a stick, I tell ya!
SJP in Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda – I couldn’t help but wonder why there’s an actual altar on her head. I love SJP (but not D&G)!
Anna Wintour in Chanel Haute Couture – how can I forget about the high priestess of fashion?!
There you have it! Ciao kids xx
