OK. Let’s talk about Lupita.
According to my email, it’s about a 50/50 split. Half of you LOATHED her Prada. The other half of you adored it. The loathers were more screechy than adorers, just saying. That’s pretty much how it broken down here at LaineyGossip.
Sasha, our stylist, was not down. Not down at all. Like she was screaming at me over text about it.
Duana liked it though. Quite liked. And our honourary MET Gala judgy member Lara loved, loved, loved.
Um. Yeah. A LOT. Like, obsessed.
Before you start shouting at me, I just want to know if you’ve seen it from every angle, if you’ve seen it move around. The more you look at her, the more magical the outfit gets. As she told Andre Leon Talley, her focus was on the “decorations” part of the theme. Click here to watch the video.
Now I want you to picture her at Jay Gatsby’s. Right?
Costume Institute Gala, remember. You can’t tell me this is worse than Blake Lively’s comatose Gucci. You can’t tell me that this isn’t better than whatever it was that Jessica Alba wore. Lupita was there for the first time. She showed up to be fun, to be creative, and to be totally herself. Now come over to my side.
