(un)TIMELY: met gala!

Whenever I get on a roll with other writing stuff, I get way inspired to write on THIS BLOG and then I drop everything else and just write here and then...I never get anything done. I am not, as they say, SPECTACULARLY TIME EFFICIENT.

Sue me. (You'd probs win about $600 USD, a few choice issues of RAYGUN magazine and more vintage polyester frocks than you will know what to do with. I hope that's ok with you)

I never did a Met Gala post. I want to do a Met Gala post.
HERE WE GO.

BEST EVER OR I DIE OR FUCK THAT LOOKS SO GOOD


C SEVS IN PROENZA SCOULER

Fuuuuuuuck. This is perfection. Wait, this is beyond that..this is life goal. 
It's the kind of thing that shouldn't look good on like, anybody and you can't tell anyone about, they just have to SEE it on you ("Um, it's like..a long-sleeved teal lace dress, with kind of a mock turtleneck?"). World please note: The night of the party it was about 98 degrees, raining and humid as hell- a lovely RAIN FOREST LIKE evening. HOW DOES SHE LOOK SO UN-SWEATY?

BONUS SEVS LOVE (also in lace!):


If wearing eye make-up didn't make me look like a 13-year-old trying to sneak into DA CLUB..I would go for this weird eyelid stripe.

Anyways, back to the GAAAAAALLLAAAAAAA

CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG IN BALENCIAGA (bien sur, doy doy doy)

Ok, at least SHE looks like what I would look like- and that is to say sweaty as fuck. I could personally care less what happens on her head, body, hand, neck, ears, WHATEVAH. Let's have REAL TALK about her below-the-ankle situation: That shit is BAY NAY NAYS increds. You know when I miss not working at a fashion magazine anymore? When I have the need to just HOLD a shoe like that. E.G. RIGHT NOW.

GRACE CODDINGTON IN...A FORMAL SANDAL

Hey, commit to your look..Whatevs it was a WORK party, basically I applaud it and I applaud your hair. Fuck those gowns! It was hot as hell that night!

THE ZOE IN MARC JACOBS
 
This is glorious. I want it. I wanna pet it. Gimme that.

BEST USE OF A MOGWAI

CHRISTINA HENDRICKS IN SOMETHING, I DON'T WANT TO LOOK IT UP.

Rough night for a smoky eye. Um..why is Gizmo on her shoulder? JUST WONDERING.
At least she had this to entertain her throughout the night:

ALT & WHOOPI G

Oh, score. Thanks guys. Meet me at the fountain?

samantha said...

it's like you got in my brain and articulated my very important thoughts on the met gala. thanks lady!

moop said...

i would wear that teal mock turtle neck lace dress everywhere. it is awesome.

Gnar Jen said...

i never saw charlotte! she looks hot as hell.
wrote this for SC but yeah, chloe was the best everrrr

Ash said...

OK, CHARLOTTE.... HATE THE DRESS... But I've fallen in love with those shoes. UGH. They're perfection. I need them... but I don't think I could even walk in them.
But hey, it doesn't matter... they are "stand there and look pretty" shoes. That's all that matters in the end....

jennine said...

omg, that was christina hendricks? the only thing i recognized were the boobs. is that bad?

brodie said...

i'm much of a fashion follower (i know, right? what am i doing looking at/with a blog!?) but i love that chloe sevz-knee makes it so accessible! looking at her, off the charts babin', makes me feel like i could just bump into her on the street and be like, "i like your pretty frock. it's like one i saw in a thrift store. except, you know, cuter." and she'd be like, "thanks."

also, charlotte's man (oof!) has total tom cruise circa nicole kidman syndrome with her in those cray-cray shoes.

also also, i love whoopi and the fact that she's clearly found something to wear that she likes and thinks suits her, even though everyone looking at it wishes she'd just dress like delores in the early scenes of Sister Act I and II


ps- found your archives! after getting to your first posts via "Older Posts". i r dum.

tanya said...

ugh i am such a sucker for 90s typography. aka that dazed cover.

ainsleigh said...

That makeup is so fun! I wore a version to Gaga's concert, plus another pound of glitter and gloss...if I didn't look like such a wastecase in the pics I would show you :)

Colleen said...

HAHAHAHA laughing about the mogwai

Claire said...

Kinda been dying for you to do this post and KNEW the Proenza Sev combo would be at number one.

Henricks prob just tries gets away with putting shit on her shoulders to see if anyone looks at anything other than her gargantuan norks. You totally won that game, I didn't see anything other than Joan from Mad Men and her boobies in a blue dress.

the chloe dress = i die! she looks effortlessly thrown together!! i'm dripping with jealousy! and that flashback shot of her walks me through her career --from raving street kid with aids to grown up 9th wife at the met!

kelly frances said...

rachel zoe's dress was amazing, im really into velvet right now and thats a wonderful color

brendan donnelly said...

the guy from "candy man" is still my favorite. why is he with oprah?

Juicifer said...

man, you crack my shit up!

everytime

redheadfashionista said...

I just don't get Chloe. True, that Proenza dress wasn't made for anyone better, but showing your bra strap? A high neck? Looking permanently stoned and/or like Kurt Cobain? I just don't see her as an icon. She's not beautiful enough to do boy chic.
I love Charlotte, however.
