Is it alright if I don’t write an intro? I have to fly through this commentary, because I’m fucking myself for the rest of the day wasting time on this shit. And there’s still about 100 dresses to go.
Without further ado, here’s the good from last night’s Gala.
It’s funny, when I interviewed Harold Koda (the head curator of the Costume Institute) for Departures, he said that his biggest secret pleasure was lobsters, and here Anna Wintour is, wearing one on her Prada dress. I love it!
Anna’s fur stole looks completely insane, and is not weather appropriate, but come on, she looks classy. And I like it when she goes out on a limb, rather than wearing a floral skirt, a cardigan, and kitten heels. This outfit is good.
Her daughter, Bee Shaffer (does anyone know what the fuck Bee Shaffer does?), dressed in Erdem, also looks good, although the neckline is, in my opinion, completely snooze.
Last night, I was sitting watching Bethenny Ever After when I got a press release in my inbox. “For images of Emma Stone’s Lanvin dress at 2012 MET Gala earlier this evening, please contact me,” said the publicist who sent it.
“Are my eyes fooling me?” I asked myself. “Or was the gala really this evening?”
Because there I was, sitting in an old pair of velour sweatpants that sag in the ass, Caleb’s wife beater, and a Uniqlo cashmere sweater. If I had known that the Costume Institute Gala was taking place, I at least would have put on a pair of leggings and a bra.
