This is kind of… not … terrible?

Oh for God’s sake. Stand like an adult.

When we say “not terrible” we mean it’s actually kind of a pretty dress. As per usual, though, she chose something with a rather difficult shape to it. The bodice is fine, but that skirt is tricky and we don’t think she’s quite the gal to make it work. Also, the Ramona Quimby hair and the fact that she can’t even be bothered to put her shoes all the way on bugs the shit out of us.

We do think the Met Gala requires more than a cocktail dress, even if it is couture. We can’t be bothered getting obsessed over the theme of the night, since “White Tie and Decoration” is about as vague as you can get (for the ladies, at least). And the Charles James aesthetic is not something every woman can pull off. It doesn’t bother us that it wasn’t a sea of exuberant ball gowns last night, but we think an above-the-knee skirt is kind of pushing it.
