Last night was our return to the Met Gala, 16 months after it was last canceled due to the pandemic. The theme was “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” which seemed quite easy compared to past themes. I saw some tweets that the fashion was disappointing, but I was just thrilled to see celebrities dressed up again. It felt somewhat safe, considering that proof of vaccination and masks were required, at least inside the venue. The photographers were masked, some of the interviewers were masked, and there was a nice vibe to it. Much of that was due to Keke Palmer’s phenomenal interviewing skills. She hosted Vogue’s red carpet stream along with Ilana Glazer, which I’ll cover in another post. I wanted to start with Iman, who absolutely slayed in this fabulous giant feather tiered Harris Reed gown and hat.
This look is striking from almost all angles, with an open structured skirt featuring tiers of golden embossed feathers, a gold brocade bustier and matching boot cut slacks. Reed told Keke during their interview that he approached Iman to model for him because she’s iconic. She is, and this look will go down in Met history. Keke was incredible with Iman, as she was throughout the night. She thanked her for being a trailblazer with her makeup line.
Laura Harrier was also in gold, in Altuzarra. Look at how that amazing dress drapes on her. I love the zig zag way the bust connects. Pure 70s glam and another one of my favorite looks.
