The Best, Worst and Weirdest of the MET Gala

The MET Gala finally allowed the plebeians to look in upon their oh so exclusive event, which is known as the Fashion Oscars in the industry. The Red Carpet for the MET Gala is one of the most high end events of the year, not only because it is when fashion designers come out to play and impress Anna Wintour, but because it is the only “themed” red carpet event of the year. Anything from 1950s style elegance to post punk have been recent suggestions. And finally, after resisting the opening of the fashion industry to anyone who wants to judge it by the internet and television for the last decade, Wintour allowed E! to broadcast the event liver on TV. (Ryan Seacrest was not on hand, and those broadcasting and interviewing had to stand behind the camera, not in front of it. Anna Wintour was not about to let her event become a circus or anything.)

This year, the theme was Manus x Machina, the man in the machine. Fashion meets tech.perhaps because of the cameras, perhaps because of the theme, the majority of the carpet followed the theme, or at least attempted too. (This is not always the case. The year they did punk, most women wore ballgowns anyway.) We have a huge amount of celebrities to get too, and even more than we left off because they just weren’t interesting enough. Buckle up, and let’s roll through these puppies.


1 Karlie-kloss In Brandon Maxwell

My personal favorite of the evening: Karlie Kloss In Brandon Maxwell. I loved the engineering of it, and play of the suit jacket and the fact that in turns the fabric looked like molded plastic, folded paper and something out of the 22nd century.

2 Claire-danes In Zac Posen

Of course, everyone was talking about Claire Danes and her Zac Posen light ups gown. The problem was, outside on the red carpet, it was bright as anything, so the light up part of the gown was utterly lost, leaving her wearing a standard issue Zac Posen slightly overworked ball gown. But once the lights dimmed….

Ooooooooooo….. ahhhhhhhhh.

Personally, i expected a lot of this, but Jourdan Dunn was the only one to nail the style with her Givenchy.
