Met Gala: Fashion’s Oscar Night

As any fashion-loving student with a crippling inability to ACTUALLY study for finals can attest, this year’s MET gala (aka fashion’s biggest shitshow) which proceeded on the theme of Schiaparelli and Prada:¬†Impossible Conversations, provided plenty of fodder for procrastination’s sake. In an attempt to condense this post to more pictures, less word vommit, I will proceed now with a briefly annotated summary of the night’s various wonders (and horrors)

The Bad

Anja Rubik in Anthony Vaccarello

Belly-high slit+protruding hip bone=not a pretty picture Ms. Rubik

 

Bianca Brandolini D’adda in Dolce & Gabbana

I’m just impressed she can stand in that thing…

 

Greta Gerwig in Prabal Gurung

minimalist Edwardian Lady-in-waiting

 

Kirsten Dunst in Rodarte

very PTA press conference diva

 

The fake tan… the pouf… the dress. Overdoing it much?

 

The Good

 

Amber Valetta in Prada

Statuesque as always.

 

Astrid Berges-Frisbey in Chanel Haute Couture

The peplum done right

The I-don’t-give-a-f*$k

 

Emmanuelle Alt in Balmain

I wore this to work this morning

 

Christina Ricci in Thakoon

yes, I do occasionally rock midi-length dresses with bustlines resembling mutant calla lilies

AND I DO IT WELL

The vampiest girl of the night
