NYC Ballet Fashion Gala Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on September 29, 2022

The stars came out in New York to support the New York City Ballet last night. Most ballet galas are fairly sedate affairs when it comes to the fashion, but this time, the attendees were evidently tasked with serving their best high fashion lewk, going by some of the showier attempts here. You won’t hear us complaining. Showy entertainers in attention-seeking fashion is our life’s blood, darlings. Now let’s get judgy about it.


Claire Danes in Oscar de la Renta

Claire, you had us until we got to the skirt. It’s a fairly basic design, but it’s pretty and appropriate for the occasion. We just hate when the lining only goes halfway down un sheer full-length skirts. It always looks silly to us, like she’s wearing a minidress under a gown.




Gwendoline Christie

This is surprisingly basic, given how outrageous her style can be. We don’t mind the retro feel of it, but the fit in the bodice looks a little funny to our eyes and she could definitely use some jewelry.




Julia Fox in Zac Posen

What a silly person. If it was 2003 and we were at the height of the bitchy celebrity blogging era, we could see all of this nonsense as a smart career move, but in 2022 it just looks so stale to us. Maybe we’ve been in the bitchy celebrity blogging business too long to get worked up over things like this anymore. Get your coins, girl. Grab that spotlight. Leave your dignity at home. It’s all good.



Kristin Davis in Monique Lhuilier

Speaking of bitchy blogging, we were all set to complain about how generic this is, but it’s honestly about as appropriate a look as you’ll find at any ballet gala. We suspect it was really pretty in person.




Laverne Cox in Iris Van Herpen Couture

It’s a spectacular dress and she’s working the hell out of it. It’s cutting into her bust way too much, though. And the shoes are horrible.



Queen Latifah

She looks like a really fabulous cult leader.
