Everybody was primed and excited to see what Madonna was going to do for THIS Met Gala. Madonna has always used Catholic imagery in her fashion and her art. This Met Gala theme was tailor-made for her! So the anticipation was off the charts. And then she came in this gothic Jean Paul Gaultier look and… it was just a disappointment, right? I mean, it’s on-theme and she looks good-for-Madonna. But I was expecting her to do THE MOST. We expected too much from her.
Solange crowdsourced her Met Gala look, and she ended up in this Iris van Herpen. Her inspiration was “the black Madonna.” Solange usually has a lot of fun with the themes and you can tell that she enjoys fashion… more than Beyonce, really. (Beyonce did not attend!)
Princess Beatrice is the first British royal woman to attend the Met Gala since Princess Diana attended in the 1990s. Beatrice didn’t cause much of a commotion though. She wore this vivid purple Alberta Ferretti gown with a small gold headpiece. Chic, simple.
