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

This is what being disliked gets you: Freedom. I’m not joking. Anne Hathaway knows a bunch of people have decided they can’t stand her, as though this is the fourth grade. “Let’s all hate Anne today, OK?” This is not new news anymore, and I’m sure she’s gone through a wide variety of ways in which she no longer gives a f*ck. Full Story

Ever since they arrived in New York I’ve been rubbing up the Gossip Genie for it, for Amal and George Clooney to show up at the MET Gala. How could it not happen? Anna Wintour was at their wedding. Anna had the Clooneys seated at her table. Anna Wintour supervised Amal’s fitting with John Galliano for Maison Margiela!   AMAL CLOONEY BEING FITTED BY JOHN GALLIANO FOR TONIGHT AT THE MET GALA.

This was close, I have to tell you. It was close to be the Best for me. And if it were any other year, or event, sh-t, it probably would have been. But this is why Sienna Miller is so worth waiting for. I want to remember this look. I promise to remember it all year and keep coming back to her as a standard for comparison. Full Story

I’ll channel Kevin Kwan’s Crazy Rich Asians & China Rich Girlfriend “Singlish” for this post about Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen who decided maintain their funereal style – which, ordinarily, I’m into – for the China MET Gala… Alamak! Such bad luck, lah. Full Story

Hated what Jennifer Lawrence wore to the MET Gala main event, especially as one of the co-hosts. Is it limiting, this Dior deal? Duana wrote earlier about Emily Blunt, about assuming Emily was more fashion forward than she actually is because, hilariously, she was in Devil Wears Prada. And I feel like I’ve done the same with Jennifer because her personality is just so not aligned with what she’s been wearing. Full Story

What did I say yesterday when I wrote about FKA twigs and Robert Pattinson making their red carpet debut at the MET Gala? I said I wanted her to go rogue. Well, she wore a Christopher Kane dress with a dick at the slit. That’ll do. When I was in London a couple of weeks ago, Lorella and I went to the Victoria and Albert Museum for the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit. Full Story
