Red Carpet: Models at the Met Gala

The models were a mixed bag at the Met Gala this year – some real highs from unexpected candidates (looking at you Hadid’s) and some expected lows from repeat offenders (Jenner’s…you know who you are).

Like I said when I covered Gigi’s gorgeous stained glass inspired Versace gown, I was very impressed with both of the Hadid sisters this year. If Gigi was delicate, heavenly stained glass, then Bella is definitely a somewhat sinful nun. She looks about ready to break out of the convent to join a coven.

So, Kate has just stopped trying, right?

GURL. HEM YOUR PANTS! Purposefully long hems drive me crazier than just about any current trend.

This feels sloppy – like she had to pull part of her gown over her head because it was raining out and she forgot her umbrella.

Speaking of sloppy, was Marc a little tipsy when he made this? It’s sewn together about as well as Dr. Frankenstein’s monster.

Remember when I said that overly long pants were the current bane of my existence? Well, I’m adding teeny tiny sunglasses to that list. They’re just so, so, so dumb. So incredibly pointless and dumb. While the Hadid’s did well this year, the Jenner’s both dissapointed. Plus, her bust looks like a sleep mask.

I love this first shot. This is why Amber is one of the original Supers. The rest of the dress is boring for me – Saint Laurent’s whole thing this year was LBD’s on LBD’s, and Vaccarello brought out a slew of them for the Met Gala. As a whole they just felt a little too cocktail/casual for me.

Diane dressed two models for the gala – Jourdan and Taylor Hill (below). This one was called the “Queen of Sheba” dress, a reference I will be honest I am not getting.

And this reference is….obvious. If you’ve read my coverage thus far, you know I love adherence to the theme. However, this feels a little too on the nose. Is this not LITERALLY just Cardinals robes?

Very elegant, if not on theme. Lately I find myself wanting more drama and grandeur from Karlie.

OK, whatever, Stella. It’s a better dress than a lot of what she makes, but what’s it doing here? And more importantly, what six year old did Paris steal that tiara from?

Liu Wen in Michael Kors

Simply gorgeous. She usually nails it at the Met Gala.

Very pretty and excellent jewels. At this point, do I even need to say the word “theme” anymore?
