MET Gala '18

Zendaya in Versace
My lil' homie is so good with this MET Gala red carpet process.
My word.

It's that time of the year again when the celebs forgo a themed event to wear shockingly boring and safe dresses.

That's right - it's MET Gala! This year's theme was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. Basically, fashion influenced by catholicism. Which is a pretty easy theme given fashion's obsession with all things religion. The exhibition will feature over 100 fashion designers  plus the Vatican (!!!) loaned over 50 pieces of their own. Pretty darn neat.

Remarkably, this year was one of the best MET Gala red carpet in a very long time*. Why? Because roughly 80% of the attendees actually acknowledged the theme. It's a miracle. And this recap post will shine a light on those who did well.

*see '12 '13 '14 '15 '16 '17  for proof

Let's begin for it's a long post. *crack knuckles*

Chadwick Boseman in Versace
While watching the E! red carpet show, I was bored with what was showing onscreen.
Then I checked online and saw Chadwick and screamed.
Like, I screamed.
This woke my ass up.
Thank you, King.
Rihanna in Versace
Another one who knows how to werk the MET Gala red carpet.
Jennifer Lopez in Balmain
Lynda Carter in Zac Posen
Honestly, this is so my style.
I gravitated towards this so much because of how regal she looks while still working the theme.
Priyanka Chopra in Ralph Lauren
Traditional + Religion.
Nicely done.
Also, if I hear that she's heading to the Royal Wedding one more damn time...
Cardi B in Moschino
Lana Del Ray and Jared Leto
Both wearing Gucci.
Kate Bosworth in Oscar de la Renta
Sarah Jessica Parker in Dolce & Gabbana
Lily Collins in Givenchy
Madonna in Gaultier Paris Haute Couture
This theme was made for her given her Catholic background and her scandalous ways of rebelling against it.
Hello, Like a Prayer.
Sidenote: Another person who I thought would knock it out the park was Nicki Minaj.
If you recalled years ago at the Grammys (2012), she walked the red carpet looking like a religious Little Red Riding Hood with a faux Pope on her arm.
And it was scandalous at the time...and a bit tacky.
But last night, she was underwhelming.
Greta Gerwig in The Row
Solange Knowles in Iris Van Herpen Couture
Homegirl is rockin' a durag under a halo headpiece.
She wins.
Frances McDormand in Valentino
This doesn't scream 'fashion inspired by catholicism'.
But it sure does scream FASHUN.
Lena Waithe in Carolina Herrera
A political statement was made with this look.
She substituted the traditional Pope's cape with a LGBTQ rainbow version.
Cara Delevingne in Christian Dior
Very confessional room inspired, no?
Me likey the drama.

And we end it here with a first - a MET Gala proposal c/o 2 Chainz. Congratulations to the two! Even though I could've sworn they were already married.
