Last week was the Met Gala, and I do love me some Met Gala red carpets—or should I say pink carpets? As this is an Arbitrary Apparel Appreciation, I’ll be posting some things that I can appreciate for being simply what they are and others that may be more of an example of The 2019 Met Gala Celebrating Camp: Notes on Fashion theme. I can’t wait to see what you come up with in the comments! On with the show!
My non-royal lady love, actress Emily Blunt brings it in this golden ensemble. Love her. Love it.
Next, we have a strange selection as I don’t usually appreciate Ms. Dakota Johnson’s fashion choices. She tends to BRING it for the Met Gala though, so even I can appreciate this Gucci business worn this year. The color really sings to me.
Our third entry is actor Darren Criss. He’s got the chops to carry off something like this, which I think definitely meets the theme.
I’m not one who usually appreciates any of the Kardashian/Jenner families antics, but I have to say I am totally digging this outfit worn by Kendall Jenner. Obviously the color catches my eye, but I really think the hair and the jewelry are perfect for this piece.
Actress Saiorse Ronan wore this heavily embellished dress which is the second Gucci featured here today.
Finally, please indulge my sweet tooth for a moment, will you? I love a little Richard Madden eye candy.
Do any of these selections meet the theme, according to you? What outfits do you think were a better match and why? Did you miss Rihanna? Share your favorites in the comments.
