Met Gala 2016 Fashion

Tuesday, May 3, 2016

Look, I probably have no right to talk about fashion. I'm currently sat up in bed with a pair of sweatpants and crewneck sweatshirt donning my school's colors and logo. There is a massive Viking face on the front of the sweatshirt. However, isn't that what the internet is for? Trolling people just because we can?

All jokes aside, the fashion on the Met Gala red carpet was disappointing. It was weird because I thought a lot of people looked really great (and a select few who, well, didn't), but the looks seemed so safe. The theme was generally interpreted as technology = silver, and thus, dozens of silver sparkly and metallic gowns were thrusted upon us. There wasn't anything wrong with the dresses (besides those select few from earlier), but, you know, there could've been a few more adventurous choices. 


1. Zendaya in Michael Kors


2. Lily Aldridge in Michael Kors (WITH THE GOLD BROWS!!!!)


3. Claire Danes in Zac Posen (#WINNER)


4. Blake Lively in Burberry


5. Kristen Stewart in Chanel


6. Zoey Deutch in Dolce & Gabbana 


7. Jared Leto and Florence Welch both in Gucci


8. Lorde in Valentino


9. Lupita N'yongo in Calvin Klein Collection


10. Brie Larson in Proenza Schouler 


11. Alexa Chung in Thakoon


12. Karolina Kurkova in Marchesa


13. SofĂ­a Sanchez in Dolce & Gabbana


14. Ciara in H&M


15. Jourdan Dunn in Balmain


16. Saoirse Ronan in Christopher Kane


17. Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton


18. Poppy Delevingne in Marchesa


19. Karlie Kloss in Brandon Maxwell

So overall, there were a lot of great looks. There were very few people that I was side-eyeing, but the general theme was underwhelmed for me. Plenty of pretty dresses (with equally as radiating people, sheesh), but nothing that made me super drool. The closest I got was with Jourdan Dunn, Lupita N'yongo and Claire Danes. But hey, it happens! Plenty of people looked incredible in their dresses and tuxedos so really, isn't that what mattered? As long as they felt good in it, who cares what the girl wearing an ensemble entirely consisting of "sweat" wear. 

What were your favorite looks from the Met Gala?
