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.

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.
