Kittens, it was a night for sophistication, elegance and chicness – somewhere else, we’re sure. But THIS is the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show, which means absolutely none of those qualities were expected or even desired in the style choices of the celebrity attendees. Shall we judge their tawdry efforts?
Bebe Rexha in Alexandre Vauthier
On her way to a party on the Carrington estate when her dress got caught in her limo door. You know what? That kind of works for her. Tacky is her brand and we’re not at the Met Gala here.
Bella Hadid in Julien MacDonald
Sure, okay. It’s not the worst cliche in the world (that one’s a bit further down). And we’d never claim this was a time and place for high-fashion. It looks hot on her and it’s on point. It just feels kinda stale.
Gigi Hadid in Atelier Versace
This, on the other hand, is great fun. It takes a supermodel to make a crotch like that one work. You’ll pardon our bluntness. In truth, we love this for all it’s glorious Let’s-Get-Physical retro tackiness. We can’t stop laughing when we get down to the shoes.
Halsey in Julien Macdonald
We guess so?
It’s a Victoria’s Secret show, after all. Theoretically, very little is off the table, style-wise. But this is so painfully literal. You’re going to show up in tired sex shop wares at a show like this? Why set yourself up for the comparison? The other gals are working that high-sexy VS realness without literally coming out on the red carpet in tired wedding-night lingerie.
Rita Ora in Versace
Oh, is it time for her to move on to Gaga cosplay?
Credit where it’s due: this is the classiest look of the night. Granted, that’s not exactly high praise, given both the competition and the general tone that inspires one to use words like “classy.”
You’re lucky you’re cute because your style is painfully dull, Mister.
