Met Gala 2022: Olivia Rodrigo in Atelier Versace

Posted on May 04, 2022

Like the Jessica Chastain post, we’re featuring this one because we felt like people dismissed it too quickly on social media. We’re all about rehabilitating the reputations of the bullied around here because our hearts are so big. Also, we’ve dismissed her style in the past for being a little underbaked and slightly tacky, so we feel like doing her a solid.



Maybe it’s because the immediate response seemed to be a collective “What does this have to do with the Gilded Age?” and our immediate response was to be reminded of the nymphs, fairies, and deep purple tones of fantasy artist Maxfield Parrish, although most of his work is post-Gilded Age. It also reminded us of the fantasy theme gowns from Alva Vanderbilt’s legendary costume party, where guests wore birds and dead cats on their heads. We don’t necessarily think any of these references are intentional; the Versace Instagram account only said it was meant to represent the opulence of the era. Still, it’s good enough for us. The dress is pretty, the butterflies are cute, and the opera gloves are on point. It’s not our favorite look of the night – it wouldn’t even rate in our top ten – but she looks pretty and the look is fun. We’re not a hundred percent on the platforms, but we’re not sure what type of shoe would be better other than a standard sandal.
