Met Gala 2018: Underwhelming Models

Every year, like clockwork, somewhere between a dozen and a score models take to the Met Gala in dresses that can only be described as UNDERWHELMING. They may be on theme, or they may not; they may be pretty, or they may not. But they all make me roll my eyes to some degree.

The strongest of the pack was Alek Wek,who was just a few better styling choices away from the Best Dressed post. I love the gold lining of the red skirt, as well as the fabric of the bodice and the train, but it does feel a bit like three dresses stapled together.

At least it has pockets.

A pretty print, but the styling is nonexistent.

There’s baroque, and then there’s tacky wallpaper.

Weird Catholic space robot. Strangely, I don’t mean that as a compliment.

Beautiful but basic.

I guess this is sort of an attempt at something.

I could skip everything but the collar.

Somebody’s bald green head is upstaging you. Do better.

SHE WEARS THIS TO EVERYTHING! Kate Moss picks up her fucking dry cleaning in this! Jesus. I’m going to burst a blood vessel in a minute.

Another LBD at the Met Gala. These people should be ashamed of themselves.

Nothing says “heavenly bodies” like pants that look like toilet paper stuck to your shoe.

  1. Don’t see your issue with Gigi’s dress…it is obviously supposed to be inspired by church windows, so it is on point for the theme without being on the nose (and yes, I know the point of the Met Gala is to be on the nose, but I personally enjoy some a more creative and less direct approach), and she looks stunning in it.
