We’ve given spotlight posts to some of the more eye-popping lewks at the LACMA Gala, but then we realized it’s basically an event entirely turned over to eye-popping lewks, so we figured that was reason enough to shove them all together for quick and easy judgment. Efficiency, darlings! It’s the hallmark of quality blogging.
Alexandra Grant and Keanu Reeves
Keanu stepped out with his longtime friend and they’re acting all lovey, so of course the entertainment press went nuts over it. We’ll just say this: they look adorable – and refreshingly normal. Also: you can’t get Keanu to wear crazy fashion, not even at an event that’s all about it.
Love the hair and the shoes, but the dress just looks like a series of fancy bibs and smocks.
We don’t like the embellishments running down that pants and wish they were hemmed just a bit more, but this is her look and her philosophy of dressing, which we can respect.
Gorgeous. Personally, we think the neckline looks too low from a proportional perspective, but there’s enough dress surrounding it that it’s not much of an issue. We don’t love this color but it looks pretty great on her.
It’s fine. He looks cute. But we feel like this is the same look he wears every time he gets dressed up. He would look great in a jacquard or brocade.
Bow down to this ageless diva.
Love the hair, but like Brie Larson’s gown, we feel like this one doesn’t really play to her strengths. It’s a bit fussy.
Okay, so maybe these looks collectively aren’t as eye-popping as we thought. Not that we have a problem with this. We’re not sure about the bouffant, but the gown looks pretty great on her.
It’s fine. Kind of a generic let-down.
The cuffs are weird but he gets a pass.
So weird that we have to respect the choice a little. The colors are interesting together and we find that we actually don’t mind black lace with a moth motif, but the bodice gets uglier the longer we look at it. Keep that amazing skirt and switch out the top half for something that won’t fight with it.
All guests wore Gucci
