Why Were There Fairy Queens at the Met Gala?

Posted on May 08, 2019

It’s not a theme we could have predicted, but a small handful of ladies at the Met Gala interpreted “camp” as “dress up like you live inside a flower, from which you rule your magick folke.”

Honestly? We’re not complaining.

 

Florence Welch in Gucci

That is simply stunning. We think the color story is a bit un-Welch-like which, along with the giant birds, represent her attempt to wear something unusual from her perspective. We realize that’s pretty much her signature hair but it really doesn’t go with the dress. Braid that up and stick some jewels in it, we say.

 

 

Julia Garner in Zac Posen

She’s more “The Goddess of Red Carpets” than “Fairy Queen,” but whatever she’s serving, we think it looks pretty great. That’s one of the best Posens we’ve seen in a dog’s age. None of it’s campy, but the tiara action brings it to Met Gala levels – but just barely.

 

 

Lucy Boynton in Prada

LOVE. She kinda dresses like this a lot, so this isn’t really all that big a deal for her, but it’s fun, sparkly, and pretty – and comes off slightly campy in this setting. Not feeling the shoes or the sheer yoke, but the head-styling is superb.

 

 

Madelaine Petsch in Jean Paul Gaultier Couture

We have no idea why she went in this direction, but we’re glad she did. It’s ethereal and weird and high-fashion as fuck. But the shoes are awful.
