Gisele Bundchen in Dior at the Met Gala: 1970s disco or just off-theme?

Gisele Bundchen at arrivals for Camp: No...

Much like Gwyneth Paltrow, Gisele Bundchen rarely follows the Met Gala theme. If you were being generous, you could say that Gisele does vaguely try to stay “on theme, but PRETTY,” although mostly she just opts for whatever dress caught her eye that week. I feel like that’s what happened here. Gisele was one of the handful of Dior-clad women at the event, and it’s clear that Dior customized this look for her, probably to her specifications. I think she was aiming for Cher, honestly. She was aiming for ‘70s disco/Studio 54 faux-camp realness. But it didn’t work so she just went for “pretty.” I do legitimately love the skirt of this Dior – I love a well-done pleated fabric, and the way this dress hangs is divine. The top of the gown is a mess though, and it does Gisele no favors (it makes her chest look especially “worked on”). Tom Brady was there too, looking like a goon.

Bless her, Cara Delevingne’s Dior look was ON POINT. I was surprised that more women didn’t lean into the camp theme this way – Cara looks great and fun, which is the point.

Priyanka Chopra also wore Dior, and I think Nick Jonas’ look is Dior as well. I truly have no idea what Priyanka was going for, at all. I’m just… at a loss to even describe this??

    nick’s little mustache was pretty campy ala john waters

    • BchyYogi says:

      Yes, a nod to John Waters. I guess Priyanka’s feathers were a ref to “pink flamingos”? Still, I think a lot of celebs just wanted a beautiful gown that was sort of maybe “on theme”.

      • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

        Priyanka looks stoned. And Jonas still looks like her teenaged son who’s trying desperately to grow a ‘stache to look older…and all he can manage is peach fuzz lol

    • elimaeby says:

      I actually really loved their look as a couple. They looked so on point for the theme.

    • Bros says:

      Joe jonas looks like Littlefinger. Just as creeepy with his body language.

  2. OriginalLala says:

    Nick looks like a teen who just proudly grew his first wispy facial hair lol

  3. zee says:

    My first thought seeing Priyanka was ‘exploded parrot’. Or maybe she tried to be the Helena Bonham Carter version of the queen of hearts from Alice in Wonderland?

  4. scottiegal says:

    They are so dull.

  5. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Cara Delevingne….wins the Camp Oscar. And of course Billy Porter.

    • detritus says:

      The shoes and cane are soooo tacky, it’s perfect. Even the underwear and nipple shields are tacky and rhinestone bedazzled. Although honestly, this Rainbow Bright look would have absolutely killed with the candy raver girls I knew. Does that style even still exist?

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        I can’t even believe I knew what you meant lmao. And yes, the ‘movement’ is still in full swing. My son’s girlfriend sent me a few just cuz. I kinda wish the raves in my day did the whole exchange, but we simply dressed outrageously…either emo goth or a la Boy Georgish.

    • minx says:

      Cara looked fabulous. She got it!

    • SKF says:

      LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!! She deserved to headline the article! Not boring old Giselle [snore].

      Cara thought about it, she had fun, she put a lot of humour in there. She was hamming it up. So great!

      Priyanka tried, bless her. She didn’t pull it off the way she wanted to; but at least she wasn’t boring and “pretty”. It works – it was just overshadowed and better executed elsewhere.

      Giselle is sooooo boooooring. She is a weetbix with no milk – I choke on her boringness and can’t quite swallow it. Her dress could have been camp if she had styled it right up! You want 70s Cher? Then commit! Wear the big headpiece, get the shoes right, smear some glitter or silver or whatever around your eyes and up your cheekbones and wear heavy black liner and lashes. As it is, big fail.

  6. Megan says:

    If Gisele is doing disco she needs to lean in on the hair and make up. This could have been a very fun look.

    • BchyYogi says:

      Gisele and Tom are the nondescript tourists gawking at the gay parade. Yawn.

    • My3cents says:

      Yes, she could have totally elevated this look with proper makeup and hair and accessories, but her choices are always so safe and boring.

    • lucy2 says:

      Yeah, I can’t believe she did the same old center part hair and makeup. What a wasted opportunity.
      Tom looks ridiculous.

      Priyanka’s makeup is terrifying.

    • minx says:

      I’m biased because I hate those kinds of pleats (my catholic school uniform) and I hate that color (I know it’s on trend, but it’s so bad 80s IMO) I’m also tired of the extreme plunging neckline.

      • Some chick says:

        It’s terrible. It’s also too long. Hopefully that means it was a loaner and she can send it back!

        The too long hems drive me batty. It’s the Met Gala! WTF?! Hem your damn gown!

  7. Karen2 says:

    I just loved loved Priyankas look. & Cara was fabulous too. Dont knock Giselles dress. She claimed it was environment friendly. Allegedly. Brady doesnt look any worse than say Ye who made no effort at all. Sophie & Joe looked FaBuLoUs too.

  8. Veronica S. says:

    Cara wins this round.

    Gisele continues to be an utter bore when it comes to anything creatively fashionable.

    • rose says:

      Yeah, Gisele doesn’t really bother about the theme at all when she comes. Cara’s look was awesome.

  9. Jennh says:

    Priyanka looks like she stole a costume off the Sucker video shoot.

  10. Snowslow says:

    Pryianka and Cara look fab! They nailed it!

  11. La says:

    Sophie Turner commented on insta comparing Nick to Littlefinger which was a PERFECT burn lol (warning, her comment is a spoiler for last season if you’re not caught up with GoT)

  12. Originaltessa says:

    Cara looks amazing!

  13. SM says:

    Cara looks on theme. Gisele’s dress is pretty but so out of place. I mean I can understand actors or musicians not following the theme a bit (but then also – why are you there if you do not bother at least trying to get on with the theme of the event?) but models are still the ones who’s job is to do fashion to be the faces of fashion, sort of ambassadors of fashion and Gisele here thinks that she is so important that fashion world needs to bend towards here, that she is her own fashion icon and she ends up looking put of place and overconfident

  14. Alissa says:

    Cara was, unsurprisingly, amazing. I don’t know what Priyanka’s doing but I actually appreciated Nick’s little touches! The mustache is very John Waters.

  15. Maddy says:

    Priyanka has some Panem/Capitol realness going on.

  16. Bellagio says:

    Giselle is that popular girl at high school that you want to be close with or be her.
    Once you look closely, you realize she is pretty boring and end up anyway with the geek squad that understands you, but also wonder, has she been able to read the invitation instructions?
    Since she is all about book clubs in Boston, you might want to hire someone literate to explain the theme to her.

    • Snowslow says:

      Another year I’d say your post is over the top (a bit CAMP?), but I am weirdly invested in this year’s theme for some reason so YES PLEASE PEOPLE DO NOT BE BORING!

  17. Mei says:

    Priyanka on theme to me, like a campy Good Witch of the East from the Wizard of Oz. Cara wins though, she gets that it’s not about looking ‘pretty’, just going all out for the theme.

  18. Va Va Kaboom says:

    Cara and Priyanka are the best of the night. Priyanka’s dress would’ve fallen short of the theme, but her styling and that of Nick’s really completed the look. And Cara was camp perfection in my opinion.

  19. Grant says:

    I love Nick’s boots!

  20. Case says:

    Cara’s interpretation of camp is exactly what I was thinking. Camp, to me, bright and whimsical. It shocks me how many people DIDN’T interpret it like Cara.

  21. Raven says:

    Gisele should have stayed home in that basic dress. Cara did her thing her look was on point.

  22. brooksie says:

    Cara kills it every year.

  23. TrixC says:

    Cara looks incredible. I know people love to criticise her modelling talent but I think she’s got it.

    • CuriousCole says:

      I’m one of those who are meh on her modelling talent, but I agree that she looks truly phenomenal here. I wish more attendees would’ve embraced the theme as she did.

  24. Marianne says:

    Gisele’s dress is pretty but has nothing to dow ith the theme. I think she’s too scared to take a risk and not come across as “beautiful” you know.

  25. Anare says:

    Year after year Gisele just wears a pretty gown. Why does she still get invited? Hard pass on her and her weird looking husband.
