Going the complete opposite direction of my last post, let’s discuss those who didn’t take the theme so literally at last night’s Met Gala.
We’ve now discussed many of red carpet looks from last night’s Met Gala but what about those who really went with the theme this year? Last year, I thought it would be fun to break up the posts by who got super punk, who kinda did and those who couldn’t be less punk. So we’re doing this same this year but with regards to those who took the Charles James theme quite literally (see below) and those who just didn’t give a shit about the theme (coming up in the next post).
Of any posts here on ChiCityFashion, there’s nothing I look forward to more than writing about a red carpet event. But when it comes to something as fashion-focused as the Met Gala, I’m pretty much freaking out for weeks in advance (and I don’t even go to this thing).
So last night was the big night. We saw a lot of crop tops, dramatic backs and my predictions were oh-so-wrong (with one exception). Kind of a bummer that Amanda Seyfried and Jennifer Lawrence didn’t show up. I always look forward to seeing what they’ll wear (and unfortunately I wasn’t either of their understudies for this particular event) but we still have 87 looks to judge. Yes, 87. Take a deep breath and…let’s go.
Predicting who will win what is just not where it’s at anymore — it’s who will WEAR what that’s right now (or really just what I care about). Although I did have a little fun with who might win the CFDA Awards (we’ll get the results in exactly one month from today), it’s almost that time of year again — what most fashion folks would say is the BEST time of the year (because it is) — the Met Ball is just around the corner.
The only time I really enjoy writing about celebrity fashion is during red carpet season. You won’t find too many “how to get [insert celebrity name here]‘s look from [insert some event here]” posts on ChiCityFashion. But every once in a while, there’s someone who really sticks out to me and I just have to discuss their fantastic style, what they’re doing right, and why they’ve become such a fashion icon. So let’s talk about Emma Watson…
