MET BALL 2016

From gorgeous to gruesome, tonights Met Gala proved wildly entertaining. The theme was Fashion in an Age of Technology launching the exhibit: Manus x Machina. Style choices ranged from the ridiculously literal to the strikingly subtle with many guests adopting the unofficial theme that lay somewhere between deconstructed disco-ball and  aluminum foil. see: every single Balmain gown. Frankly I was just pleased to have not seen any feeble leeloo impersonations. 

HIGHS

I admit it. Claire Danes in this ZacPosen phosphorescent ball-gown may just have been my favorite look of the evening. it's goddamn magical. Sure she looks like Cinderella - a very sophisticated - corseted Cinderella. Just to really hammer home how much I loved it I'm posting 4 images. Posen combined equal parts glamour, spectacle and mechanics. 

Lows

As with any fashion based event there are going to be some ungodly messes. And the honor went to the usual suspects - I'm talking to you Madonna. You're old. Stop it. No gala would be complete without Lady Gaga-ghastly showing up in a get-up that's inevitably punctuated by sky-high platforms that will hopefully one-day land her in traction. Finally -One word: TRON. I don't know who Julie Macklow is but whatever this mirrored monstrosity is supposed to be - one thing's for sure it was a HUGE mistake. 

SNORES

Bal -one-trick-pony- main is picking up the predictability torch where Versace left off. Shoulders, sheer bits and a shit tonne of shine = yawning* Perfect for the Kardashian-Jenners and their "squads". Also . . .Kanye -fuck off.
