Met Gala 2017: Bella Hadid and Gigi Hadid Do Their Respective Things

Posted on May 03, 2017

Part two in our series entitled Attention-Seeking Sisters at the Met Gala. See our exciting first entry in this series here!

First up, Bella slings her Wang!

 

Bella Hadid in Alexander Wang

That’s far more butt-crack than we feel the Met Gala really calls for, but she didn’t start the fire on that particular trend. Other than that – and the fact that it’s extreme body-con style is pretty much the exact opposite of the classic Commes des Garcons aesthetic, we don’t mind this look on its own merits. Obviously it’s not for everyone or every occasion, but it sure does fit her brand and gets the job done on her never-ending PR game. It’s Couture Catwoman realness and we can like it just for that alone.

 

 

Gigi Hadid in Tommy Hilfiger

Credit to the house of Hilfiger for giving it a shot, but this aesthetic really isn’t playing to the brand. It’s a little try-hard and a more than a little cliched, but it’s an admirable attempt to do a Rei Kawakubo take on a tuxedo/ballgown hybrid of sorts. It doesn’t really work but we’re not mad at it.

And she gets some credit for picking it as well. She could’ve gone all see-through and butt-crack, but there was actual thought put into this design. She still got to show off the goods to the cameras, to the extent that she wanted to, but this feels like something that’s trying hard to live up to the night and the venue. Again: can’t hate it for that.
