Sydney Sweeney in Giambattista Valli Couture at the 2022 LACMA Art + Film Gala: IN or OUT?

Posted on November 07, 2022

We absolutely adore what Sydney Sweeney wore to the LACMA Art + Film Gala, but we suspect it’s going to make some of you kittens seethe with rage, so we can’t help but want to put it up to a vote. What can we say? We’re shit-stirrers at heart. But before you scroll down, we ask that you bear in mind two things; the first is that the LACMA A+F Gala isn’t quite at Met Gala levels, but it’s definitely a fashion showcase for the celebrity set. You’re expected to arrive loud. The second thing to remember is that her whole vibe and persona in her career right now is very much in what used to be called the sex kitten mode. It’s why she’s remaking Barbarella. Okay, NOW scroll down.


It’s silly, sexy, tacky twee and we honestly can’t hate it too much. It almost feels like some sort of cosplay. If we truly want to critique this, we’d say the tights and the glitter platforms pretty much eradicate any chance of this being chic, but we think that’s pretty much the whole point. This isn’t chic. It’s fun. It’s cute. It’s more than a little ridiculous. She’s young and she should be wearing silly things in public. But as we said, this one’s going out to y’all for the final call. Let’s hear it.
