Dear Gossips,

The First Monday In May, the documentary about last year’s MET Gala, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this week. The star of the film, obviously, is Anna Wintour. She apparently oversees every detail and puts a lot of energy into not just who sits where and beside whom but also who sits where and who they can see.  Read Full Intro

And now…maybe the opposite of every sentiment expressed in the Anna Kendrick/Elizabeth Banks post… But hey, Jada Pinkett Smith is the boss lady of the strippers, OK? And she’s GOOD at it! The new Magic Mike XXL trailer. When the teaser came out, I wrote that Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I LOVE the MET Gala. I’ve covered it twice for etalk. It’s the best b-roll of the year. It’s the best dress porn. It’s non-stop fashion masturbation. And amazingly, even though the theme was China: Through The Looking Glass, and it could have been a disaster, it ended up being one of the strongest showings in a while, even though, as I predicted, there was a chopsticks incident.  Read Full Intro

We can fight about everything else. But we can’t fight about this. There’s no debate. Even though it’s Justin Bieber… What he’s wearing here, custom Balmain by Olivier Rousteing is everything that the MET Gala was supposed to be last night. Double dragons up the sleeves? The double-breasted shirt?!?! The DOUBLE-BREASTED SHIRT!!! THE DOUBLE BREASTED-SHIRT!!! The fit of the pants? There is no Chinese person on this planet who isn’t down with this. Full Story

Bless her. She gets it. She gets it so much that she jokes about it. She jokes about all the crazy sh-t she’s worn in the past. She laughs about having to do yoga moves in the car on the way there just to accommodate the outrageous pieces she’s put on her body…on her head. So of course it was SJP who wore a Philip Treacy headpiece inspired by a ceremonial Chinese bride. Full Story

She’s the one I’ve been alluding to the whole time when asking the question – why are you there if you’re not there to play? Joanna described it as a state dinner dress. She’s right. Reese Witherspoon, in this red column, is going to the White House. It’s a fine dress for a White House dinner. Full Story

Zendaya is my best MET surprise. I mean, finally. This is what we’re talking about when we talk about the MET Gala. This is a COSTUME, but also a dress that you fervently wish you could wear in real life. She looks like the Khaleesi.  Yes, I know that this is not something that could work on someone who’s older than Zendaya, which is practically everyone. Full Story

YES, Solange. YES. This, as I’ve noted on several previous occasions, is what Solange should be putting all her efforts into. LOOK AT THIS BEAUTIFUL THING. Giles is the designer. And isn’t this exactly why fashion is art? The interpretation? Because a lot of people are describing this as sci-fi, an homage to yesterday’s May the Fourth. Full Story

Can you imagine how excited Marc Jacobs must have been to dress Cher for the MET Gala? Cher, as we all know, is usually associated with one designer: Bob Mackie. Mackie is apparently too busy to design her costumes for her new tour, appropriately titled Dressed To Kill. She was broken up about it a couple of months ago. Full Story

This is the dress that spawned the memes. Google it. You’ll find pizza and Big Bird and more and yeah, of course. OF COURSE it should be memed. It was made to be memed. It was made to be noticed and admired and ridiculed. It was made to be a MOMENT. And it had to be HER moment. Rihanna. Who had to have most of the carpet and the staircase cleared out so that she could make her way in. Full Story
