Regina Hall in Dapper Dan for Gucci at the Met Gala: underdone or incredible?

Regina Hall and Ashley Graham were in Dapper Dan for Gucci. Dapper Dan is a designer from Harlem known for dressing iconic golden era rap artists like Erik B and Rakim and Salt-N-Pepa. He redefined and reworked luxury brands to define 80s era hip hop fashion. (Teen Vogue has a good article on black culture and camp.) Their looks combined classic Gucci fabrics with embroidery, and some neon touches. I like Regina’s dress with the giant bee on the front more than Ashley’s reworked jacket. On camera Regina’s dress looked underdone, but in the photos you can see the exquisite fabric and the incredible over the top details on this gown. I like it!

Ashley Graham was also in Dapper Dan, in a jacket with some sparkly tights, embroidery and glittering green lapels and cuffs. Again, on screen I thought this wasn’t enough but when you see her styling and all the touches it’s impressive and on theme.



Karlie Kloss, on the other hand, phoned it in with her Dapper Dan dress. It’s just a regular strapless mini dress with some puff sleeves. I’m disappointed in this but it’s on brand for her.

    Regina Hall and Ashley Graham’s looks were pretty awesome. Karlie’s dress would have been great if she styled it at all right. Her lack of accessories and the fact that her hair and makeup did not go with the look or theme just made it a huge miss. Karlie is a freaking model, she should understand how styling works.

    With all of the ensembles that had words on them, Karli’s could’ve said “I didn’t want to take a risk“.

    I didn’t like Regina’s dress and she looked miserable. Loved Ashely’s look. Karlie Kloss should’ve stayed home.

      Yeah, I don’t get the dour looks so many were wearing! Being camp is about joy and fun and humour! You don’t have to smile but if that is your choice then you need to POSE! Lean in, find something a bit nuts and go for it! Gaga and Natasha Lyonne got this. Others did not.

    Why does Regina look so over it? It’s such a fun look with the matching hair, but maybe my love bees is clouding my judgement.

    Underrated actress.

    Has the Beyhive jumped on Regina Hall yet? Seriously asking. When I saw her outfit last night, I thought I remembered her in the middle of that “who bit Beyonce” kerfuffle. And while it seems it wasn’t her that did the biting, it does seem that she’s still talking about it (as of March of this year, anyway).
