Met Gala 2018: They’re Crowning!

From floral wreaths to spiky crowns to beaded hoods to halos, headpieces were the favored accessory of the evening. They’re so crown; bow down, bitches.

Amber wins the top spot mostly because her crown cost 32 dollars and looks like a million bucks. That is a game I can respect.

I swear, one look at that crown and I peed a little.

She looks fucking stupendous. She also already did the Catholic theme at the 2012 Grammys, before it was cool, so A+ to Nicki for being ahead of the game.

Sza gave us weeping madonna realness, and I am grateful for it.

The gold chainmail hood is a delight. And boy, did twitter have a TON of fun with the journalist who tweeted that Olivia’s look was “inspired by her love of the Crusades.” It’s really that kind of tone-deaf nonsense that make for the best Met Gala memes, isn’t it?

This is cute! I could use the tinsel trim and the platforms, but from the waist up, she’s pretty much killing it.

JULIETTE BINOCHE

Juliette aimed for medieval Catholic draping with a pinch of solid gold disco, and honestly, I think she hit the mark.

It was Winnie’s first Met Gala, and I’ll give her points for effort. And not just the physical effort it takes to hold up that giant fucking hat all night.

Personally, I think she could have taken things further. And I’m not sure the fit of this dress made any consideration for her actual body. But, spiky crowns are fun and on-theme, so, I’ll take it!

A hood AND a bejeweled crown? Isn’t that double-dipping? Also, I would like to steal those shoes and wear them every day.

A rare mis-step from a starlet who usually pulls out all the stops.

Killer crown, but the rest of the look belongs on a different red carpet. And the yellow purse is extremely distracting.

This has nothing going on south of the star-spangled tiaras that interests me.

DOUTZEN KROES

I’ll be honest, this was supposed to go in the Underwhelming Models post, but it somehow snuck into this draft. Now, Doutzen does technically seem to have some amount of fabric on her head, so we can pretend she belongs here, but just know that my true reaction to this is #underwhelmed.

Lady Bird called, and even she doesn’t want that hair back.
