2018 Met Gala: The Sinners & Saints
The night of the Met Gala is my favorite night of the year! I live and breathe for a good, controversial red carpet (hence the name of my blog).
The red carpet of the Met Ball is all about drama, glamour, and a controversial theme. This year's theme was the most controversial of all:
Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination
This is my favorite Met Gala theme of all time because designers created the most divine and sacred looks I have ever seen on a red carpet.
My number one rule for the Met Gala is to FOLLOW THE THEME. Each celebrity and designer is invited by THE ANNA WINTOUR and to disrespect her and the Met by not following the theme is disgusting. I have based my best and worst dressed looks by theme. If you did not follow the theme I HATE IT!
So, here are my saints and sinners of the 2018 Met Gala:
SAINTS - Best Dressed
Blake Lively in Atelier Versace
Blake Lively shut down the carpet! She was the last to arrive and left everyone with their jaws on the floor. Everything about this look is DIVINE!
Zendaya in Versace
The hair, the dress, the glam...COULD NOT BE MORE PERFECT. I am obsessed with the red hair look on Zendaya. She channeled Joan of Arc perfectly and played the character just right.
Janelle Monáe in Marc Jacobs
Janelle perfectly emulated the Virgin and Child Between Saints Theodore and George with her headpiece. YAS for sticking to the theme!
Cara Delevingne in Dior
Cara nailed the fashion interpretation of a confessional with her look by Dior.
Gigi Hadid in Versace
This stained glass dress by Versace is TO DIE!
Stella Maxwell in Moschino
I loved this look because it goes perfect with the theme, yet it's so detailed!
Chadwick Boseman in Versace
"Gucci Gang": Lana Del Rey & Jared Leto in Gucci
That moment when Mary & Jesus step on the carpet! COME THRU THEME!
Ariana Grande in Vera Wang
Ariana Grande DID THAT on her Met Gala debut. She left me with no tears left to cry!
Sarah Jessica Parker in Dolce & Gabbana
The queen of headpieces at the Met Gala does it again!
Migos in Versace
SO PERFECT & SO ON THEME.
Zoë Kravitz in Saint Laurent
I FRICKIN LOVE THIS LOOK. Zoë did not come to play. She gave us business on one side and party on the other.
Hailee Steinfeld in Prabal Gurung
I love how fresh Hailee looks. The burgundy lip and the silver headpiece perfectly complete this look!
Rihanna in John Galliano
The look everyone is talking about! RIHANNA TOOK US TO CHURCH AND HAD US PRAYING! "I can't believe Rihanna invented Catholicism" - all of Twitter.
Kate Bosworth in Oscar De La Renta
So angelic & so perfect.
Bella Hadid in Chrome Hearts Official
UGH loved how Bella captured the dark side of the theme this year. SO DOPE.
Rita Ora in Prada
Rita Ora totally captured the essense of the theme and everything the Met has to offer! I love the yellow purse and the hot pink lip!
SINNERS - Worst Dressed
Jennifer Lopez in Balmain
I am the biggest JLO enthusiast, but this is just so boring and basic!
Selena Gomez in Coach
WTF WAS THIS. Her spray tan looked like peanut butter and her makeup was horrendous. Please fire your stylist ASAP.
The Sisters Who Can't "Keep Up" with the Theme: Kendall Jenner in Off-White, Kylie Jenner in Alexander Wang, & Kim Kardashian West in Versace
Don't get me wrong, I love this pantsuit and need it in my closet ASAP, but it is sooo off theme that's why I don't like it.
Too simple and too dull for the Met Ball. And what's up with the sunglasses?
Yes, her dress sort of went with the theme, but it is so basic. Kim is the most controversial celebrity ever so she should've gone more all out.
Amanda Seyfried in Prada
Amanda looked beautiful and this dress fits her vibe, but it's so off theme.
Amal Clooney in Richard Quinn
If the theme of the Met Gala was a garden, this would've been on my best dressed list
Katy Perry in Versace
Katy committed, but she did not deliver. SO NOT INTO IT!
Shawn Mendes & Hailey Baldwin in Tommy Hilfiger
First of all, the look was too bland and second of all, don't make your red carpet debut as a couple at the Met Ball...
Shailene Woodley in Ralph Lauren
She tried and failed! Not a good look honey.
Kate Moss in Saint Laurent
Kate Moss is one of the greats, yet her look is so boring! UGH IT FRUSTRATES ME!!!
Kerry Washington in Ralph Lauren
Kerry, you always dress so good, but this was such a fail!!!!
Let me know what were some of your favorite and not so favorite Met Gala looks! Until next year!
