Fashion’s most stylish (and stylishly controversial) night has come and gone with in my opinion one of the most exciting themes ever: Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. To people who don’t know what it is, MET Gala is the opening of Costume Institute’s exhibition for that year where guests are supposed to dress up according to the theme (and not take it too literal), most of which unfortunately fail every year. It’s also a night where Rihanna always wins. Always. For this year’s theme there was lots to work with; embroidery, fabrics like jacquard or velvet, religious symbols, spiritual elements (such as saint and evil), structure, shape and more importantly head pieces. If none of those work for you, it’s quite the opportunity to make a perfect statement like Lena Waithe.
This year I decided not to write anything about the Golden Globe Awards red carpet neither on the blog nor on Twitter, because it was ludicrous and superficial to compete dresses on an event where the message was so much stronger than fabric. But now that the #TimesUp movement is off the red carpet and more on the stage at SAG Awards, I felt like I can go back to picking my favorite looks – because there were SOME. Even though she didn’t make many people’s lists, Saoirsie Ronan is my favorite in her pink Louis Vuitton and messy hair. She is my new red carpet star and I’m always looking forward to seeing what she’ll wear. Margot Robbie, Allison Williams and Natalia Dyer were tied for the second spot as they all looked dreamy; with Millie Bobby Brown, Yara Shahidi and Olivia Munn not so far behind… Check out my 30 favorite looks from the night!
