Met Gala 2019: The Best And Worst Dressed

First of all can we address the elephant in the room real quick, Rihanna’s presence was greatly missed…. The End. Oh wait, why did she miss the biggest event of the year in the fashion calendar again? Well, apparently Fenty’s launching in the UK (read she had better things to do)

As she shared bible verses on Instagram and praise Vogue US editor in chief Anna Winter as best dressed at the event, Twitter was wilding to the point of Photo Shopping her to the event.

That was funny though, sis should have just pulled up in one of the Fenty Lingeries she would have killed two birds with one stone. Anyway enough about Riri she’s probably ‘busy with the upcoming album’ that we’ve grey-hairedly waited for.

This year’s theme was Camp: Fashion notes, that in lay mans language required the celebrities / guests to embody irony, humor, parody, pastiche, theatre and exaggeration. So far, so good until I saw Kanye West pull up; son, what happened?  This is the guy who’s supposed to be suffering backache from carrying the world’s creativity on his back? No son, we don’t care if that jacket cost $4, the Kanye we know would have done better. We are disappointed, I am disapointed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kim in all her latex glory could be seen on the carpet stepping away from him from time to time as her pictures were taken. Sigh.

Was I the only one cringing at Gaga’s 4 wardrobe change and stair act? The only thing that made sense to me was the prop that looked like a trolly and to think she was co chairing the prestigious fundraising event. But wait, the pink number while she held the phone was not bad at all including the black gown plus hair and make up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

My heart swell with nostalgia as I saw Zendaya take the pink carpet, her Cinderella get up was such a sight for sore eyes, I can imagine all the wires and effort it took to bring this Tomy Hilfiger number to life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now for those who were asking where Ciara left her little cute son who was dressed in Gucci at the Billboard music awards (like we all need the details) the event is strictly for 18 year olds and above. Now long before her wardrobe change and twerk session on the carpet she donned a leafy green Dundas gown and goodness her hair was a piece of work, she looked great to say the least

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have these two ever disappointed on the Met Gala carpet? NEVER is the answer, I mean they’ve attended like only two but still, they looked fabulous. Travis Scott was my best dressed dude of the night no doubt in his Versace brown suit with black trim and leather gloves, the suit came with a leather harness on it. Kylie, were those detachable feather sleeves she wore with her Lavender Versace gown, sis looked dope despite complaining that she couldn’t breathe in the dress. Now I’ve never been a fan of the nude trend but the creativity was one heck of a vibe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Remember when I said I hate nude trends? I hate whatever Kendall was wearing, her hair and make up was on point though plus the color looked good on her.

What in the world was Celine Dion wearing? I mean I can see it but just not her in it, forget the age factor and all but in my own personal opinion I don’t think she looked good in the design, the shimmering effect, the tassels, everything about the get up is fine but ah no.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I can’t believe guys were hating on this fit, I mean the comparison to ham omelette was almost precise but trust me, this would be me if I ever got a chance to be invited at this event, comfort is key and those sneakers are everything.

And we are definitely not about to forget the time he put up a photo of him in a red thong and red heels and yes he also had red lipstick on.
