I mean, God. She could have also been best Joan of Arc cosplay, best imitation of metal, best custom Versace any of us can remember. It’s truly spectacular. I can’t stop looking at it. And to top some of her previous Met Gala looks is an extremely high level of difficulty. Maybe, if I’m being really really critical, I wish the shoes had been a little more aggressive, but that’s really petty. Full Story

Is it weird to say that Donald Glover ‘won’ the weekend considering what he won with? I hope not, because to not do so would take away from how… everything he is.    So yesterday Kathleen asked ‘HOW is he so good at everything?’ and I self-importantly texted her to tell her it’s because he believes he’s a literal genius, as per the incredible New Yorker profile Full Story

It’s a THEMED Gala! Where the theme is about what you wear! THEEEEMMME!  Do these two really deserve to be yelled at in the same breath? Maybe not, though I think putting them in the same category is understandable… and yes, they’re both wearing Louis Vuitton, but that’s not what the issue is here. Full Story

Yesterday when I posted about Gisele Bundchen, I mentioned that I wasn’t sure if I’d be including her in today’s Met Gala coverage because of what happened last year, when she and Tom were co-chairs for the Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons exhibit and couldn’t be bothered to dress to theme. Full Story

They just kept piling up. When Lily Collins arrived in what I described as her “Wednesday Addams First Communion” outfit, I was stunned by the spiky saintly halo. Even when she posed with Hailee Steinfeld, who had the whole ‘Heavenly Angel’ interpretation going kind of literally, it was kind of a neat dark/light coincidence. Full Story

Katy Perry and Evan Rachel Wood weren’t the only feathered angels last night. But they were the only ones I remember. Katy Perry is the most obvious angel, as befits Katy Perry. It’s not like Katy ever does anything subtly. So, of course, her angel wings are going to take up the sky, spread up and out in spectacle. Full Story

I’m mad now. I went to google how long SJP and Andy Cohen had been friends and got sucked into a long chain of Plead The Fifth segments (which I am going to make all of our friends play next time we’re all together) and wasted an obscene amount of time because it’s the middle of the night and nothing seems real. Full Story

There is nothing that makes me more mad than people who don’t lean into the theme of the Met Gala, except maybe people who decide they’re going to wear a straight up costume. More on both those offenses later.    But there is a way to break the rules. First you make sure you’re going in a direction nobody else will, and second, make it an obvious move, not like you’re hiding from the theme. Full Story

First any carpet, actually. Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk have both been at the Met Gala together. But they’ve never walked the carpet at the Met Gala together. It’s only taken them three years and a child. I’m curious about what this means. A Star Is Born comes out in October. As mentioned last week Full Story
