Dear Gossips,

So many tiaras!  As expected, there were a lot of virgin brides. There were a few Matrix brides. To me, at least, it could have been a Cate Blanchett in Elizabeth and Gwyneth Paltrow in Shakespeare In Love theme party.  Read Full Intro

Well. Who the f-ck else would it be?  I want you to picture her face and hear her voice while you’re reading that sentence – Who.The.F-ck.Else.Would.It.Be? Do you wonder if there was anyone else who dared to think about a pope hat? Or does Anna Wintour send word around to everyone that, under no circumstances, is anyone else wearing a pope hat? I’d like to believe that no one even considered the pope hat because they just knew, like breathing, that if a pope hat was to be worn at the Heavenly Bodies Met Gala it would be Rihanna and no other because, really, who else could possibly make this happen the way Rihanna made it happen?  What happened is that this is custom Margiela by John Galliano. Full Story

I checked and checked myself. Is she really my best dressed? Is this really the most arresting look of the night? But it is undeniable. This is the one I loved best.  I think I might be grading on a curve again, but the overall look is like nothing we’ve ever seen from Jennifer Lopez Full Story

I refuse to pretend to have any chill about Chadwick Boseman’s Met Gala look. I was out at dinner with friends when I saw the first photos of Chadwick arriving on the Met steps and I rudely interrupted my friend’s story with, “HOLY F-CKING SH-T CHADWICK.” I then texted the same profanity-ridden reaction to Lainey and Duana. Full Story

I wrote yesterday, ahead of the Met Gala, that since Selena Gomez would be repping Coach, I wasn’t expecting her to really be a major player on the red carpet because Coach hasn’t really delivered in the high fashion game. Full Story

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
