Met Gala 2017 Trend: La Vie en Rose, Darlings!

Posted on May 03, 2017

Kittens, in the interest of full disclosure, hardworking red carpet bloggers (such as we) are sometimes forced, when faced with a fucking tsunami of gowns in the wake of a major celebrity red carpet event (such as the Met Gala), to frantically herd them into roughly arbitrary groups just so they can stay abreast of the situation lest they find themselves still blogging about it ten days after the event, long after everyone has lost interest.

In other words, Pink Ladies? Line up for judgment.

 

Laura Osnes in Christian Siriano

It’s very “Met Gala” in a roughly cliched way. How many of these tumbling-down-the-stairs heavy skirts have we seen over the years? This isn’t so much a knock against Siriano, since this is partially his brand. And the skirt really is lovely, the way it evokes pink roses.

Let us pretend we don’t see the top.

 

 

Lily Collins in Giambattista Valli Couture

The bodice looks way too “naughty fetish shop” to us. In fact, she kind of looks like a display inside a Victoria’s Secret. Like if you took off her head, and put a “SPRING SALE” sign in its place, you could tuck body lotions and lip glosses into her skirt. Which is bitchy, because we actually like this look except for the bodice.

 

 

Lily-Rose Depp in Chanel Couture

Cute and a little bold. It’s not really setting us on fire in terms of what the event calls for, but it’s a nice look on its own merits.

 

 

Miranda Kerr in Oscar de la Renta

Very, very cute. But also very, very standard red carpet.

 

 

Zoë Kravitz in Oscar de la Renta

The fuzzy black parts aren’t really working for us, but there’s a great sense of high drama here. That shade of pink looks really amazing against her hair and skin.
