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.
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.
There was a place and time where it was cool to wear logos — Gucci G’s, Fendi F’s and Juicy Couture everything (so the 2001-2006 range). Then it died off for a while and now we’re seeing a comeback, but [thankfully] in a slightly more tasteful way.
