Karen Elson: MET Gala Also-Ran
Karen Elson looks awesome, but her night was ruined as soon as SJP hit the carpet, because she became the ‘other’ one in a headpiece. Every dramatic move that Elson made – big red skirt, big gold necklace, who are we kidding, that tiara, which under any other circumstances would have been a showstopper – is in serious ‘what else have you got?’ territory, primarily because with such a wide reaching theme, you have to go pretty far to be the one on the extreme side. Also because of Rihanna, obviously. Karen Elson’s dress shouldn’t be forgettable but it absolutely is.
