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.
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.
Please, no loud noises or sudden movements. These stars have all suffered head injuries that caused them to believe they are attending the Oscars. They think they look amazing – and they would, on any other red carpet. But friends, the Met Gala is not the goddamn Oscars. (Though this year’s theme was a little more traditional-red-carpet friendly than previous years, I still can’t bring myself to put anyone in the Best Dressed post who didn’t really commit to the costume.)
“Basic Bitches at the Met Gala” has become a time-honored tradition here at Democracy Diva Headquarters. But 2018 blessed us with a Met Gala theme even boring stars could latch onto, with the mere addition of a cross necklace. So let’s dive into some unimaginative attempts at the theme – and no attempts at all!
Let’s finish up this goddamn thing already.
A tribute to those who attempted the theme, took a leap of faith, and failed spectacularly.
Because if the starlets don’t give any fucks, neither should we.
