Met Best Costume: Florence Welch
You want a costume?
THIS is a costume. THIS is art. It’s exquisite. It’s a statement. It’s requires a specific wearer. And you can’t wear it anywhere else. You can’t even find it anywhere else.
Unlike what we just saw with Michael Kors and Alba and Swank, Florence Welch in McQueen by Sarah Burton is what you’ll remember. You’ll remember it for years.
I feel like that’s a requirement for McQueen. That they are deliberate and specific about who, who gets to represent the brand, especially here, at the Met Gala, where a statement is being made. Like, Jennifer Love Hewitt doesn’t get a call back from McQueen, you know? Or Dianna Agron. Or... well, it’s a long list.
