Well, come ON. Did you think two bitches such as we would be satisfied with merely writing 10,000 words on the fashion event of the year, darlings? Of course we had plenty still to say. Not just about the red carpet, but the exhibit and the history of the event. Lorenzo in particular had much to say about his new obsession, the documentary on last year’s Met Gala, The First Monday in May:

Highly recommended for all fashionistas and -istos.  Or for anyone who may be curious about this sometimes hard-to-parse event. And of course, we each give our picks for best and worst on the red carpet and hopefully manage to explain the theme and why so many of the attendees who tried to dress according to it, got it wrong.

But first, a huge bitchfest about this week’s RuPaul’s Drag Race:

Oh, it was entertaining, to be sure. But we run down all the reasons why the RPDR finale is always a badly structured event that robs the final victory of every bit of potential drama. Then we draw on our many, many years of obsessing over and writing about reality TV competitions to offer some more Project Runway-like options for the show’s finale.

 

You know. The usual bitchfest/kaffeeklatsch.
