Met Gala 2017: Who Went For It

When it comes to the Met Gala, there’s those that go more traditional, those that take the theme into consideration, there’s some where you have no idea where their head was at while getting dressed and there’s those that really GO FOR IT. So let’s talk about those risk takers…

You can’t say she didn’t go for it…

The definition of wearable art.

Side note, after last night I’m so in the mood for some colorful eye makeup and a top knot…aren’t you??

She looks like a poorly wrapped gift (which I’m pretty much an expert at…hence why I just stick to gift bags).

Let’s make trench gowns a thing…

You’re right. Pants are overrated.

Trying to find some redeeming quality about this. BRB (I should warn you…I’m never coming back).

Personally I’m just not a fan of fashion that resembles a cupcake (ironically I love to eat them) but I really appreciate the hair / makeup (and those brows…?).

The fact that she wore a completely beaded jumpsuit with that gold detailed skirt over it is the definition of GOING FOR IT. Still deciding how I feel about this but regardless, BRAVO HALLE!

Comme fashun at its finest.

If I made this list for every red carpet, Janelle would be on it every time. She always goes for it on the red carpet, and I love her for it (even though it’s usually a little over too the top). BUT this is the one event where over the top is encouraged, so I say YOU NAILED IT JANELLE.

This was one hair / makeup combination last night I was not a fan of. It’s just not doing anything for her / the look. But she is wearing a dress with pants…and that’s something I am always a fan of.

You know you’ve been doing this too long where you see a beautiful intricate dress like this but still think “been there, seen that.”

This makes absolutely no sense to me. Why would one add all this extra randomly placed crinkled fabric onto an otherwise decent (term used loosely) gown? Project Runway is even too good for this.

I always look forward to what she wears at the Met Gala as it’s typically on the casual side and very unexpected. This one though isn’t really doing it for me (because it’s not really doing anything for her either). The bleached eyebrows are cool but that’s about it.

Only a model like Bella Hadid could pull off a skintight jumpsuit at the Met Gala and of course, she looks incredible. I love that it goes all the way down to cover the shoes and the open back is pretty amazing. This will sound petty but I wish the back went to a point (a V) rather than rounded. There’s something stronger and more chic about that look. Otherwise, DA-YUM.

I’m just going to go out and say it…I hate everything about this.

More fabric, please!

I’m scared. But I like it.

Who do you think really went for it this year? Any favorites? Last post (best dressed!) coming soon.
