Versace stole the show at this year’s Met Gala. The brand dressed numerous celebrities in Versace’s chicest Sunday School evening wear, fitting the theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” The Met Gala, dubbed the “Super Bowl of Fashion,” is the perfect (and usually the only) excuse to go completely extra with your outfit. I always praise those who commit to the theme and give it 110%.
Below are the best and not so best looks from fashion’s most famous evening. If you were sitting on your sofa last night wishing you were there, or lusting to own a fabulous piece from one of these designers, I’ll let you know which Met Gala designer runs sample sales. You’re welcome.
The Kings and Queens of Met Gala 2018:
Met Gala Royalty that committed to the Catholic theme.
Best Dressed Queen: Blake Lively in Versace and Christian Louboutin.
There was a huge Versace sale this year, and we are keeping our fingers crossed for another one next year. Christian Louboutin has sample sales, but they are almost impossible to get in to unless you work for the company or know someone who does.
Best Couple: Jeremy Scott and Cardi B wearing Moschino
Global Fashions hosted a Moschino sample sale recently, with mixed reviews.
Best Dressed King: Chadwick Boseman wearing Versace
Sarah Jessica Parker: This Met Gala Queen NEVER disappoints. Dolce & Gabbana and Jennifer Fisher dressed her this year. We are still praying for a D&G sale… Hopefully our prayers will be answered soon.
Nicki Minaj dressed as the devil by Oscar de la Renta and Tiffany & Co. The Oscar de la Renta sample sale just passed, and happens every year.
Jennifer Lopez: New York’s “Jenny from the Block,” is strutting down the red carpet with a Balmain dress and Jimmy Choo accessories. The cross on Jlo’s dress can be found on Anna Wintour’s first Vogue cover. Nice touch! A Balmain sample sale is also in our prayers, but you can shop the divine Jimmy Choo sample sale every spring.
Sinful Looks That Had Me Asleep at the Altar:
These celebs did not follow the theme and were just plain BORING!
Worst Dressed: Jaden Smith in Louis Vuitton
Jaden, I guess thinks he’s too cool to to wear something crazy. Not only did he not follow the theme, he looks like he’s going to grab some lunch on his way to his next meeting. You’re also that self-absorbed that you have to carry around your gold record? This is the ultimate Met Gala sin.
Worst Couple: The Olsen twins. These two are always a packaged deal. They have the same over-sized look every… singe… year… I think I would die and resurrect if they wore something different. The Elizabeth & James sample sale is their brand, and it’s is opening tomorrow.
Cara Delevingne: Wearing Dior and looking more like a dominatrix rather than a Catholic school girl.
Claire Danes: Her dress contributed absolutely nothing to the theme. She added three colors together and added a feather. I’m hitting snooze button on this one.
The Jenner Clan: Kris (in Tommy Hilfiger), Kendall (in Off-White), and Kylie (in Alexander Wang) were all SO boring! Not to mention that Travis Scott looks like a World War II German soldier. I guess Kim K. was the only one allowed to slay the red carpet that night. (P.S. Alexander Wang has sample sales.)
