I know. I can’t believe it either. But let’s remind ourselves what Reese Witherspoon looked like the last time she was at the MET Gala, in 2015, when the theme was China: Through The Looking Glass:  Full Story

Priyanka Chopra was one of the first arrivals to the MET Gala, and the “Inspector Gadget” jokes came fast and furious. I get it, she’s wearing a trench coat. I will tell you why I’m more into this than 95% of the gowns I saw. Full Story
