We’ve discussed the not so punk and the almost punk from last night’s Met Gala…but what about the punkest of them all? These ladies BROUGHT IT. Not saying they all should have (I’m talking to you, Madonna) but I appreciate the effort.
So we already know who completely missed the punk memo last night, but we have to discuss those who tried…but failed. Not saying all of these ladies are on the worst dressed list, but their attempt at punk was so close…yet so far.
All caught up with part 1 and part 2? Great. Grand. Fantastic.
Now let’s talk about those who missed the punk memo. I’m not saying you have to show up in a mohawk, a nose ring and everything with safety pins but you can at least acknowledge the theme. But maybe these people are so punk, they’re not going to dress punk for the punk event. Ever think of that?
Tonight was my absolute favorite event of the year [that I don’t attend because it’s $25,000 a ticket and I’m not famous] — the Met Gala. Saying it’s the Oscars is fashion is an understatement. When you’re typically used to seeing strapless sparkly gowns on the red carpet (#boring), this event has anything but. This year was especially exciting with the whole punk theme (which we already discussed last week) so I decided to do my red carpet posts a little differently this time. Be looking out for part 2 coming soon, as well as a “best punk,” “almost punk,” and “not so punk” posts. Getting a little ambitious with 5 posts but I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy writing them. If not, please lie in the comments section.
So I hope you’re ready for some serious red carpet commentary, because here it goes.
