Greta Gerwig’s nun cosplay at the Met Gala is everything, right?

Every year when we’re running on fumes at the end of covering the Met Gala we realize that there are people we missed. Greta Gerwig was one of those and I wanted to do another post just to marvel at her oversize nun costume by The Row. As we know from watching Lady Bird, Greta went to Catholic school and has a personal connection to the theme. She looks so comfortable and happy in this giant black gown with white bishop sleeves and a white collar. Check out her little gold headband, which is a subtle nod to a nun’s habit. This is amusing.

Kate Upton is another one I didn’t see until now. She was in Zac Posen! Posen also did Lynda Carter’s gown, and I didn’t realize he dressed at least one other woman. I’m impressed with her styling and this is a beautiful gown, but it would look at home on any red carpet, it’s just that they added a hood and colorful headpiece.



I’m including VS model Stella Maxwell here because she wore this amazing Moschino adorned with Catholic imagery. I’m surprised we didn’t see more looks like this, but imagine the amount of man hours that must have gone into it. Moschino designer Jeremy Scott was posing with Cardi B as she’s the more famous one, but Stella was in the better dress.

Stella’s extensions were ridiculous though.

    I loved Stella’s. Probably in the top 5 best looks of the night.

  2. Lightpurple says:

    Stella’s dress is truly an amazing work of art. I saw her in the background last night and was screaming: “show THAT dress! I want to see THAT dress!” Are the hair extensions supposed to invoke Eve?

    LOVE Greta’s dress! It’s serving Nunnery Realness and looks comfortable enough to eat and drink as much as you want. The material is gorgeous and the extra-long cuffs add a certain something. It’s refreshing to see something other than JEWELS and CROSSES and CROWNS.

      I hear you and I want to like it but I just don’t. I guess the balance between costume and actual gown is off to me. Too costume-y for me, I guess? Although I will readily admit there were much more costume-y ensembles there.

    She looks like Alice from the Vicar of Dibley.

    I loved Greta’s dress. It had a sense of hunor to it. Stella’s dress was gorgeous. I just wish the styling of her hair and makeup had been given more thought. Kate’s dress was meh. If she didn’t have that crown on her head it would just be a satin dress with a hoodie on it.

    I thought this was that Alison Mack person. The one arrested for the sex cult.

  7. Sage says:

    Kate Upton looks gorgeous. I like the headpiece.

  8. Sherry says:

    Thanks for showing the best looks! Besides Greta Gerwig’s, I didn’t see these anywhere else..

    LOVE Stella’s dress. Work of art. Greta’s is fun. It makes me wish someone had come dressed as The Flying Nun 😄

    • Pandakeeper says:

      Stella’s dress is gorgeous piece of work. I’m just not feeling it on her.

  10. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    Love Kate’s headpiece but not the rest of her attire.

  11. Veronica S. says:

    Not a fan of those hair extensions on Stella. They look really rough and synthetic to my eye. Something more ornate would fit the dress better, like the elaborate updos medieval noblewomen used to wear.

  12. KatieBo says:

    Blah. Greta Gerwig is such a bland person. Even when she does something “well” it’s so boring…

  13. Lindy says:

    Stella’s dress is one of the best of the night, imo.

  14. Mishka says:

    Wtf is wrong with Stella’s neck and throat. It looks like she is melting!!!!!

    Love Stella Maxwell’s dress. But when I saw Greta Gerwigs gown I did an audible suck wind. Having gone to Catholic schools myself when a few nuns still wore the old habits, I immediately got the reference and marveled that she pulled it off so perfectly and no one else went there. Perfection! Hats off to The Row.
