Met Gala 2022: The Golden Girls

Posted on May 04, 2022

The dress code for this year’s Met Gala asked for gilded glamour and one thing you can say about these gals, they understood that part of the assignment, at least. Let’s judge some goldifrocks, kittens!



Camila Mendes in AMI

She said this was based on the famous Electric Light Dress, but that seems like a pretty tenuous reference. We don’t mind the dress – not even the cutout, surprisingly – but the trim looks way too Christmas tinsel to us and we’re not entirely convinced that the fringed skirt and sequined bodice marry as well as they should.




Cara Delevingne in Dior Couture

We don’t mind a good tits-out fashion moment if it’s bold and fabulous. This almost works, but the cut of the pants and all of that … stuff on her belly ruin the effect for us. It bugs that the jacket and pants don’t quite match.



Cardi B in Atelier Versace

This is gorgeous and the fit is spectacular. The Gilded Age was all about conspicuous consumption and flaunting your wealth, two concepts Miss Cardi understands extremely well.




Carey Mulligan in Schiaparelli Couture

The dress is an absolute stunner. We hate to say it, but the hair, makeup and manicure aren’t up to its level. Love the earrings.




Chloe Bailey in Area Couture

We’re all for challenging conventions of form, but this isn’t gilded glamour, it’s gilded tumor. The jewelry is interesting, but she looks like she can’t breath and the golds clash with the dress.




Khloe Kardashian in Moschino

Credit where it’s due: this is gorgeous. But it also feels like she tried to out do Kim.



Louisa Jacobson in Schiaparelli Couture

We can understand wanting to really go for it after everyone said she was the blandest thing about The Gilded Age, but as much as we love Schiaparelli and crazy fashion, we can’t sign off on the weird shape and the Barbie crotch effect. She looks so much better as a brunette.



Megan Thee Stallion in Moschino

As we said in our Cosmo writeup, this reminds us of 19th Century statuary of idealized winged female forms. We’re not sure if that was the idea, but we do love the bust and the shoulder treatments. The sheet cutouts, not so much.



Mj Rodriguez in Moschino

Glorious. Love the ombre effect. Her face looks stunning. The shoes are perfectly chosen.



Rachel Brosnahan in Altuzarra

It’s pretty stunning, but we don’t like the stomach straps and all we can hear when we look at the top is Biz Markie rapping “She had 9/10 pants and a very big bra.”
