As some who prides themselves on speaking basic french, I must admit I had to Google this year’s Met Gala theme Comme des Garcons. Comme des Garcons means like boys and its founder the Japanese Rei Kawakubo is a visionary within fashion with her beautiful architectural pieces. What I loved that she was a minority and is still alive so she could remember this honor.
Over the years especially 2016, the Met Gala was a what I would describe a “hot ass mess”. There was no creativity and people were dressed as if they were going to a budget Oscars. I hate that people never stick to theme or even try but this year I found that people tried to stick to the theme and there were some new fresh faces on the red carpet which is always exciting.
MVP of the Night: Her name is Rihanna
The MVP of the night was the one and only Robyn freaking Fenty better known as Rihanna. Rihanna is my fashion icon and no one has convinced me otherwise. I love that she wore Fall 2016 Comme des Garcons. I love that she looked like a flower and was wearing way too much blush. What she wore is not the best she has looked on the red carpet but at least she tried. I don’t think she out did her 2015 Met Gala look but at least she trying too. Rihanna is one of the few people I literally wish was on every red carpet because her style is unpredictable and she is such a free spirit that she can literally shut it down like she did on Monday and in 2015.
Best Dressed other than Rihanna:
This was a hard one because I actually liked so many looks last night.
1. Zendaya Coleman in Dolce &Gabbanna : Zendaya like Rihanna always dress for the occasion and I love her wig game and she is super dope and collaborates so well with her stylist Law Roach.
2. Cara Delevigne in Chanel: Cara the model and actress always looks so impeccable and fresh. She is one of my favorites because her quirky personality always comes through. I love the silver hair thing.
3. Tracee Ellis Ross in Comme des Garcons: Tracee Ellis Ross made her Met Gala debut and absolutely killed it in Comme des Garcons. She is becoming one of my favourite fashionistas and does not mind taking risks. I love it and look forward to seeing her on other red carpets.
