Okay, so the Met Gala 2016 had lots of fails (of which we will get to) but honestly, the highs were as high as the lows were low. Frankly, I think it had something to do with the challenging theme- “Manus x Machina,” because it can get dangerously tacky with all the aluminum foil-like fabrics and whatnot. I feel like these dresses towed the line between going with the theme (I HATE when celebs don’t at least try) and being elegant as hell.
Firstly, although Beyonce had another nude ensemble, I think herpuff-sleeve nude latex gown by Givenchy was gorgeous. I also loved how Kim Kardashian went full sexy-ass robot in her embellished and mirrored Balmain gown (though I don’t like her in couple form, with Kanye. It felt very denim Britney Spears/Justin Timberlake). Lorde looked way more glammed up than she usually does in Valentino, and Jourdain Dunn’s Balmain dress was also lovely, along with Rita Ora‘s beautiful silver-feathered frock. I can’t forget to include Solange, who always rocks the Met Gala because her looks were practically made for it. She’s like a GIVEN to look interesting and gorgeous.
The winners, in my opinion? Lupita Nyong’o KILLED it in Calvin Klein. So much so that she’s my top pick for who won the evening, with a close second by an actress I don’t even really like: Kate Hudson. Kate Hudson’s Atelier Versace dress and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes were freaking BOMB, and were exactly right for the evening. Bravo!
