The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City has hosted its annual Met Gala on May 7th. The exclusive fundraising event for the Institute is a chance for A-listers to show their attention to detail and step out of their fashion shells. Each year, the Costume Institute reveals a theme to be followed and interpreted by celebrity guests, each of whom is handpicked to attend by Anna Wintour herself. This year’s Met Gala theme is “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”. A-list guests showed up in an array of interesting fashion choices from various designers, most notably, Versace. Below, I name the best of the best who did not come to play with you all on the cream-colored carpet.
While some left plenty to be desired, ahem, Kim Kardashian West, others just simply did not follow through on the given theme, i.e. couple Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott and model Cindy Crawford. But, don’t worry, we always have our faves who will come through and, um, bless our hearts. And may we please have a moment for Mr. Wakanda himself who represented in Versace for the men and proved a suit can be much more than ‘just a suit’. Met Gala 2018 co-host, Rihanna Fenty, reformed bad gal, showed up Vatican ready as our favorite look of the night. Don’t you just love how she rarely disappoints? So, here is the roundup ladies and gentlemen, Au revoir.
