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:┬áImpossible 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


Jessica Stam in Dior Haute Couture

sky-blue becomes the newly raven haired Ms. Stam


China Chow in Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture

best dressed designer-muse pairing of the night

Diane Kruger in Prada

I can’t even…


Hailee Steinfeld in Miu Miu

THIS is how to land a Miu Miu campaign


Lana Del Rey in Altuzarra

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Oscar look goes noir…


Constance Jablonski in Haider Ackermaan

A truly amazing color palette on a simple, sleek dress


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



Camilla Belle in Ralph Lauren Collection

The vampiest girl of the night


Coco Rocha in vintage Givenchy

what Katy Perry wished she looked like


I realize you can see my ass and your welcome for it
