The 2016 Met Gala red carpet was a festival of fashion, both good and bad! Let’s review 10 worst looks from the night that might make you go *cringe*
After what feels like ages of waiting and waiting, the 2016 Met Gala has finally come and gone. This year’s red carpet was a festival of fashion with probably more celebs in attendance than I can remember. Literally, anyone who is anyone was there…and for the most part, the fashion was good. No, it was GREAT. This year’s Manus v. Machinus theme made for some beautiful mix-media looks on the red carpet. Silver and metallics were definitely the it trend of the night and Louis Vuitton and Balmain dressed more celebs than anyone.
Not all of those looks were good though. While a Taylor Swift‘s Louis Vuitton and Jourdan Dunn‘s Balmain both made their way on to my Best Dressed List (here), there are other looks that feel onto my worst. So, let’s buckle down and review the 10 looks of the night that left me scratching my head.
Alessandra Ambrosio in Balmain
I hate these knotted messes from Balmain. Some may find them cool, but I find them completely nauseating and no matter how many Kardashians or supermodels Riccardo Tisci wraps up in rope…I’m not changing my mind. No.
Demi Lovato in Moschino
This looks like Jeremy Scott took Beyonce’s flamed-out Givenchy from a few years back and circulated it with aluminum foil. Tacky.
Emily Ratajkowski in Prabal Gurung
I get that this is supposed to come off as slinky and sexy, but to me it just comes off as sleazy and poorly constructed. Prabal, I know you can do better.
Grimes in Louis Vuitton
See, Louis Vuitton had the pleasure of dressing lots of people. The one perhaps least-interested in being there? Grimes. In that case, I kind of love this. It gives off this zero-f*cks vibes. But, it is the Met Gala and a parachute dress seems a little underwhelming, no?
Kate Mara in Paco Rabanne
I dunno what has happened to dear Kate Mara, but she’s gone from one of my red carpet favorites to one of the most perplexing. I’m not sure what she’s trying to accomplish here but it is the Met Gala and not Studio 54.
Kristen Stewart in Chanel
I do love the boots. The love stops there.
Madonna in Givenchy
When interviewed, Madonna said the bread sticks are what she loves most about the Met Gala. Which makes sense, because this is totally what one would wear to the Olive Garden… *wink*
Miranda Kerr in Louis Vuitton
For the Spanish hussy that has an interest in insect anatomy.
Saoirse Ronan in Christopher Kane
It looks like she caught cold and pinned her feather duster to her neckline for warmth.
Sarah Jessica Parker in Monse
The one where SJP forgot she is SJP and came dressed as Cyndi Lauper.
As always, stay stylish and keep chasing your dreams!
