Met Gala 2019 Red Carpet Rundown Part 1

Posted on May 09, 2019

The time has come for all of these people to lip sync for their lives. Or at the very least, to line up so we can judge them quickly. It’s not that these folks did poorly on the style front. We made sure to single out the mediocre attempts for a separate post. No, some of these looks are quite fabulous.



Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton

It’s goofy as hell. We suppose we have to give her credit for that, but as a brand ambassador for LV she can’t escape looking goofy half the time. All she did here was accessorize a little more randomly.




Ava DuVerany in Prada

This is gorgeous and striking.



Carey Mulligan in Prada

This is just weird.




Dominique Jackson in Victor Glemaud


But not those shoes, girl. They’re not doing the job for you.




Gwen Stefani in Moschino

We were a bit meh on this at first, but the longer we look at it, the more fun and fabulous it comes across to us. It’s high-end showgirl drag and that’s not a bad way to go. Besides, she looks great.



Indya Moore in Louis Vuitton

Love the dress, love the makeup, love the braid. We can see how well all the reds coordinate, but we’re struggling with those shoes.




Julianne Moore in Valentino Couture

This gal lives her life in B&W looks, so a neon sequined ruffled gown is a big step outside her comfort zone. It’s fun, even if the color’s not the greatest for her.



Karlie Kloss in Dapper Dan x Gucci

It’s a fine enough look on its own but if you’re going to wear a cocktail dress to the Met Gala, we think there should be a bit more going on than this.



Kris Jenner in Tommy Hilfiger

Real Housewives of Romulus.

(nerd ref)



Kristen Stewart in Chanel

She looks like a stern but fabulous 50-year-old fashion editor who used to be a punk. And somehow? That all suits her fine.



Laverne Cox in Christian Siriano


The wig color and bright makeup are fabulous choices to set off all that black.



Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen

We have to admit, those gowns are pretty badass. They’re lucky it was a relatively cool night.



Mindy Kaling in Moschino

She went for draggy styling and that’s kind of fun, but this really is a terrible dress for her.



Natasha Lyonne in Jaen Paul Gaultier Couture

We laughed out loud at the over-the-top ’80s Power Bitch realness. Not only is it camp, but it’s insanely on point for her somehow.



Regina Hall in Dapper Dan x Gucci

If those pink sleeve things were removed, we’d think this was perfect. They really don’t do anything for the dress. And the rest of the design is so eye-popping it could use a little more space to breathe, so to speak.




Sophie Von Haselberg and Bette Middler in Michael Kors Collection

Like camp icon mother, like alarmingly lookalike daughter. They look adorable together.



Tracee Ellis Ross in Moschino

Okay, in all our whiteness, we didn’t get the reference initially, but Miss Ross is paying tribute to black artist Lorraine O’Grady’s “Art is” movement, which encouraged black people to attend the African American Day Parade in Harlem sporting frames, presenting themselves as art worthy of celebration. As Tracee said on her instagram, “RECLAIMING THE NARRATIVE.” The fashion is un-notable but the concept is fabulous.



Yara Shahidi in Prada

We love this gal’s style choices and of course we give folks a lot of leeway to go cray on the Met Gala red carpet, but all of these elements combine terribly with one another. We can’t pick out one part that suits her well.



Zoe Saldana in Michael Kors Collection

We choose to see this as Donna Summer cosplay and thus it is both camp and fabulous.
