Pop Style Opinionfest: From The Met to the Red Carpet: Why Fashion Matters

Posted on July 22, 2022

It’s an ALL-FASHION edition of the PSO, something we’ve been wanting to for some time, since there hasn’t been much style to be found in our Pop Style Opinionfest of late.




You didn’t think we’d said all there was to say about the big red carpet story of the week, did you? Look, it’s great that Brad Pitt felt free enough to air out his balls on the red carpet, but our conversation here is less about praising the cishet white guy for mixing things up a little and more about unpacking what led to this moment and whether it means anything for how men will dress going forward.

But before we get into all that, we have to tell you all about our recent trip. We spent an entire weekend walking through the Met’s Costume Institute Exhibits:



In America: An Anthology of Fashion




In America: A Lexicon of Fashion


Which, you may recall, inspired the previous two Met Galas. We have some quibbles with how the exhibits are set up and what they fail to do, but for the most part, it’s just a long ramble from two fashion queens, talking about the history, meaning, and importance of American fashion.





Thanks for listening, darlings!
