My favorite envelope-pushing Monday night in fashion occurred this week and though I got so pumped when I realized the theme was "punk through the ages" I feared it may not produce the most elegant looks. That was an understatement. The red carpet was really not as fun as it had been in the past, so much bland black, and some people just looked plain gross and greasy. Before I share my favorites, let me just get something huge off my chest right away. WHERE THE HELL WAS KATE? I mean I know Kate Moss is kind of above it these days, and maybe she got a heads up from Gwyneth that the whole gala is a drag, but she was the one person that could show up and school everyone in the whole punk chic thing. Also Rihanna should have been there too, but seeing as its a big model night, Kate was noticably absent and the fashion blogs are suffering for it.
First up: WHAT I WOULD HAVE WORN
If I had an invite, I would have taken my partner-in-crime Elise who is the only pal I know that would even care about the whole dressing to theme thing as much as I do. And we already had it worked out. Since we dont have Beyonce status, we can't rock Beyonce trains that would necessitate a team of five to help us up the stairs. So we would err on the side of the "short fab frock" She in Erdem, Me in Matthew Williamson. Done and done. She: in some kind of wild eyeshadow and side sweep to the hair, I'm sure, Me: in black liner, red lips and rumbled bed head locks.
Ok back to reality. Sienna Miller and Cara Delevingne rocked it in Burberry. I never thought Kate Mara would be on my faves list and Diane Krueger would not, but I guess life is unpredictable. Also I think I have a major crush on Eddie Redmayne. He's got that effortless British elegance and boy-next- door thing going simoultaneously. Not to mention he had some well dressed ladies on his arm- Mamie and Zoe.
Who did you think was best dressed at Met Gala? I'd love to hear about your fantasy dress choice! Its very fun and a lot cheaper than actually attending!
