Karlie Kloss is an American supermodel and has been declared by Vogue Paris as one of the “top 30 models of the 2000s.” Her job as a model is to take pictures wearing elaborate garments. Maybe this is why she chose such a simple look for the Met. The dress is inspired by something one would wear to the office, only, you know, not actually.
This take on office attire is a bit too revealing to be worn in a business meeting. Either way, while this is a nice look, we were underwhelmed by both the dress and the hair and makeup.
A Cross Across
When it came time to dress for 2018's Met Gala, saint J.Lo knew exactly what to do. Leave it to the star to gleam a holier-than-thou radiant dress that most definitely turned a lot of heads on this night and for all the right reasons. She went for a literal interpretation of the theme “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” wearing a giant cross across her chest.
The bejeweled Balmain dress was made especially for her by Olivier Rousteing. The gown was inspired by an '88 "Vogue" cover, and it took over a month to make! It was definitely worth it, this one.
The Wrong Color
This look that the singer and actress Selena Gomez wore to 2018’s Met Gala event scored her a shameful place in many of the year's worst-dressed list. Not only was it considered a failure, but it has also sparked some controversy.
Many complained that her tan and makeup made her look as if she was from a different ethnicity. While the dress is not great, it isn't as bad as the hair and makeup. Some critics even bashed the star, claiming that she went through a horrible “tanning failure.” Yikes! Selena is a natural beauty, and we're sure her next Met Gala look is going to be spectacular.
A Hot Mess
In 2017's Gala, Jake Gyllenhaal's sister, actress Maggie, donned a sequined ensemble in green and purple. We think the dress has a floral theme to it, but honestly, it is so shiny it's hard to tell. The two-time Oscar-nominated star may be great on-screen but somehow her fashion sense let her down quite a bit on this year’s event with the “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between” theme.
While the hyper-embellished garment may appear to be a dress, it is actually a wide pant. This look is our definition of a hot mess! We hope she gets the opportunity to redeem herself at another red-carpet event further down the line!
When the theme is "Camp," and the attendee is RuPaul, the campiest drag queen out there, we'd expect to be blown away. RuPaul’s criteria for putting on his full drag attire is quite similar to the supermodels of the 90’s criteria for getting up and out of bed: only if there’s money involved. “I do it if someone is paying me to do it,” he said to Marketplace.
We do applaud the "Drag Race" host and producer for not taking the easy way out and showing up in an enormous dress. On the other hand, his striped sequin suit just wasn't enough.
