Keke Palmer in Sergio Hudson at the Met gala: give her a talk show?

Keke Palmer was the absolute highlight of last night’s Met Gala coverage. She hosted the red carpet livestream on Vogue, along with Ilana Glazer. Keke was relaxed, fun, personable and she seemed to know everyone. She was genuinely interested in the fashion, she asked celebrities their star signs and she would pause to give them time to answer questions. She’s easily the best red carpet interviewer I’ve ever seen and I would watch a talkshow with her.

Keke was in Sergio Hudson, in a look that was inspired by Diana Ross. She looked incredible and I came away from last night’s live stream wanting to hang out with her.

While Keke was inspirational in her skills, Ilana was a little more relatable. She was great with the celebrities too, just in a more subdued way. Ilana was in Aliette. This dress has a kind of puzzle piece design that’s interesting and I like the bell feather sleeves. Ilana just had a baby 12 weeks ago. Toward the end of the night she disappeared for a while, and she explained that she had to go pump at that time. She was fangirling over Keke when they wrapped for the night and it was sweet.

Kehlani was also in Aliette, in this bomb of a silver suit with a bolero jacket and high pants. Look at the sleeves! I love this.

Megan Rapinoe, like Keke, was in Sergio Hudson. This is a bit too literal interpretation of theme, but that’s ok. She’s a star athlete and we get patriotic about them. I like how sexy yet practical this is.

Broadway star Audra McDonald was also in Sergio Hudson, in a black sequin gown with a delicately draped asymmetric white balloon shirt on top. This is kind of cool I like how thoughtful this look is.

    I am so disappointed, I expected much more cowboys and patriotic related theme outfits but mostly everyone went full Hollywood glamour, leave that to the Oscars !
    Also very surprise to see so much foreigns brands.
    And I love Megan Rapinoe suit.

    • Leanne says:

      I think cowboys and flags would make it too mich like halloween dressup, which is not what the met theme is.

  2. Becks1 says:

    I loved all of these looks. Keke’s and Ilana’s in particular – just perfect.

    Megan Rapinoe’s was very literal, lol, but I’m okay with that because I think she looked so good.

    Audra McDonald looked gorgeous.

    • TQ says:

      I loved all these looks too. Keke nailed the Diana homage, and her coverage was fantastic. Definitely needs her own show.

    Keke was amazing, but I don’t necessarily agree with what you wrote about Ilana…. idk if it got better toward the end of red carpet bc I fell asleep, but the beginning was a disaster…she didn’t know most of the people she was interviewing and made zero effort to introduce or talk to them properly… the people she knew, she was okay with, but the rest of it gave me MAJOR second hand embarrassment. No prepared questions, zero interest, interruption in the middle of the sentence….idk idk

      Mrs. No, I agree. Keke did great. Ilana not so much. There were quite a few complaints about her on the boards I was reading. She came across really ill prepared.

    Literally every time I see Keke on tv I wonder why she doesn’t have a talk show. She’s just so effortlessly hilarious and seems to really enjoy talking with the people she interviews. I know after she filled in on that gma show with Michael Strahan they added her to the show for a while before it was swapped out for a show about the pandemic but they should try giving her one of her own.

    Keke was so dang good at her job!

    Loving Kehlani and Megan’s tailored looks, they both stand out from the sea of prom-like dresses of this year. Audra’s look reminds me of…something I could see Michelle Obama wearing? I think it’s that the dress reminds me of Carolina Herrera.

  7. Renee says:

    Keke was perfection! She looked gorgeous and the dress fit her perfectly. Also, I agree her interviewing skills were spot on. She seemed interested in who she was interviewing and engaged with each person. I LOVE her!

  8. Bella says:

    Loved Keke’s dress–she looked gorgeous and also loved Megan. She looked gorgeous in the suit!
