    I don’t get Tom Ford’s comment. The theme was camp and the bitch nailed it. She then changed into that iconic burger costume. Like…the KarJenners are right there

    • Trina says:

      I agree. And all he’s done is make attendees more anxious over taking a chance. I love the outfits, and especially those that are on theme.

    • Tiffany:) says:

      I get the comment. Katy’s chandelier and burger outfits were costumes, they weren’t fashion.

      • Brendar says:

        So is it better to wear something costumey that matches the theme, or wear whatever dress and tiny sunglasses that are ‘fashion’ but have nothing to do with the theme? I’d rather see over the top outfits that are clearly trying to match the theme, but I could see how a fashion insider would just want people to dress like they are going to a fancy event and not a party.

      • HoofRat says:

        I freaking loved that the Fug Girls referred to her as the Katyburger; that’s how I think of her now. And it made me happy that she didn’t take it as seriously as La Wintour would dictate.

      • Merricat says:

        Tiffany, agreed. Costumes are not fashion, and this event was meant to be a celebration of fashion, not a masquerade ball.

      • Tiffany:) says:

        I think the best choice is to wear fashion that goes with the theme. Many people have done it successfully. From my personal perspective, fashion is wearable art, so I’m not saying that it can’t be outrageous (see Rihanna), but there should be some craftsmanship involved. To my eyes, Katy’s dress in her look above seems to be an afterthought in comparison to the prop that dominates both her head and body. The cheeseburger was all prop.

      • Katie says:

        Isn’t the whole thing a benefit for the Costume Institute?

      • OG Bella says:

        The Costume Institute isn’t about costumes like you are probably thinking about.

        The collection that is curated at The Met is not “costumes” but six or seven hundred years worth of fashion, including clothes and accessories.

      • Snoozer says:

        Ummmm… it’s the Met Costume Gala and it raises money for the Met Costume Institute. The whole point is to be overboard and costumey. Guests are expected to curate their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit which includes Haute Couture and costumes. Are we really saying that Rihanna’s pope cosplay wasn’t also a costume? Or Zendaya’s light-up Cinderella dress? Of course they were! And those outfits are rightfully revered. Katy was on theme and looked great!

      • Normades says:

        Agree with Tiffany. Team Tom here. This isn’t a Halloween party. And I don’t see what a chandelier has to do with the theme. Camp is a John Waters movie, but this is just ridiculous.

      • Kirsten says:

        ^^ It’s not costume like Halloween. Katy Perry went as a chandelier and a hamburger; that’s Halloween.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Rihanna’s pope look was fashion. Take a look again…the draping of the coat, the beading, the layering of an outer skirt over a shorter dress. It had amazing craftsmanship, something Katy’s hamburger did not.

        When you look closer, do the details become more impressive? For Katy, her looks are “Monet” to me. They look better from far away, and belong on stage in an arena tour.

    • Isabella says:

      Tom is the kind of celeb who wears sunglasses indoors. Hard to take him seriously. He’s not even that famous.

  2. prk says:

    Okay I’m hearing rumors Kim Kardashian is wearing Marilyn Monroe’s “Happy Birthday” dress to the Met Gala. I wonder if it’s true. I mean would she fit in it nicely? I don’t think they’d let her alter it. I guess we’ll see.

    • Tiffany:) says:

      I really hope that’s not the case. I don’t think their measurements were anywhere close to each other’s, so I’d imagine they’d have to let the dress out quite a bit in areas. Old fabric can be so delicate!

    • Eurydice says:

      I remember reading that the Happy Birthday dress was something like 36 bust, 23.5 waist, 33.5 hips.

      • BeanieBean says:

        OMG, my high school measurements were 33, 23, 33 1/3; but dang! I looked nothing like Marilyn! Does 3″ make that big a difference in one’s figure? Then again, there was only one Marilyn.

      • Ama1977 says:

        Considering that Marilyn herself had to be sewn into that dress, I don’t believe there is any additional fabric to let out for it to fit KK, whose hips are almost certainly bigger than 33”.

  3. NorthernGirl_20 says:

    I am so excited for the last season of Grace & Frankie and I can’t wait to see Dolly on it. I just love Jane Fonda and she is my style idol (like is it weird that I love the way an 80 year old woman dresses?.. I’m 46 btw lol).

    • JanetDR says:

      Haha! I adore everything that Frankie wears 😀

      • NorthernGirl_20 says:

        Haha Frankie too actually, I would love to copy Grace’s style for at work and Frankie’s when I’m home 🙂

    • Sarah says:

      I am 49 and I too adore Grace’s clothes! They always look so soft and comfortable and expensive.

    • Jillibillijean says:

      My Mom and I love the show. It’s hilarious to me she wants to dress as Grace but she is suchhhhha Frankie lol even tho she doesn’t smoke weed, or let me have a chicken lololol

  4. girl_ninja says:

    I know that Tom Ford can be such an snob but I just love him! I can’t help it. Katie Perry’s Met Gala outfits always make my eyes roll. She’s so extra and I cannot with it.

    • SAS says:

      Your Tom Ford is my Naomi Campbell! Snobbish, probably awful to be around but I can’t help but love her- so FASHION!

      I’m Team Tom re: costumes here, it’s a fine line (Zendaya’s Joan of Arc comes to mind) but Katy is on the wrong side of it for me. I think this Met will be very boring, “gilded glamor/American lexicon” doesn’t inspire.

  5. HeyKay says:

    OMG. Please don’t let Kim K or anybody else wear anything of Marilyn Monroes.
    MM had a damn tough life, please let her rest in peace, and leave her personal items alone!
    That poor woman was used, abused, victimized, called stupid, and IMO, murdered.

    The Kardashians are talentless, money grubbing, attention seeking, nothing we will not do or say for a buck idiots. PMK has no boundaries. When will their 15 minutes of fame end?

    • prk says:

      I don’t know, but Kim and Pete were pap’d in Orlando at the Ripley’s Museum (where the MM dress is kept). They spent three hours inside. There are rumblings she was there to try on the dress. But then again, knowing the Kardashians, they might be the ones who put out this “rumor” just to get people talking about Kim and the MET. I mean do paps normally hang out at the Ripley’s Museum lol? Could have all been staged for pr.

      • Lala11_7 says:

        @HEYKAY…in my opinion Marilyn was murdered too….(Bobby Kennedy is one of my political heroes…but…and you KNOW where I’m going with that)…and I agree…seeing that dress on KK would just piss me TFO too 😒

  6. Tyle says:

    When, exactly, SHOULD a chandelier dress be worn, according to Tom Ford, if not to a public event known for outrageously creative attire on its red carpet where the theme is “Camp”?

    • Duch says:

      Halloween party, presumably

    • AppleCart says:

      I hated the camp theme. It’s cheapened the gala and designers didn’t step it up with creativity and we got the Chandelier Dress and Barbie Car.

      But now it’s just another corporate gig to buy tables and promote Tik Tok stars.

      Anna did this to herself letting the Kardashians and Jessica Simpson’s breasts in.

  7. Peanut Butter says:

    Katy Perry’s costumes are a whole lot more fun and interesting than Tom Ford’s comments

  8. Mcali says:

    He’s not wrong.

  9. Liz in A says:

    Costumes can be cheap ass halloween style OR specific wardrobe choices meant to highlight a mood, genre, era , story, etc.

    Yes the Gala is a fundraiser for the Costume Institute but they dont mean gimmicky cheap choices. Interpreting the theme, displaying craftsmanship and materials while highlighting creativity is all together different than a tacky anything goes cause ” it’s a costuuuume” approach.

  10. Tanguerita says:

    completely off topic, but Angelina is in Lviv, Ukraine right now!!! This woman is really something else. We don’t deserve her. https://www.youtube.com/shorts/m1ZJzBqrGxo

    • AppleCart says:

      She’s a helluva lot braver than Sean Penn or Maks who hightailed it out of there.

  11. Delphine says:

    Katy Perry looked like she was onstage in Beauty and the Beast the musical.

  12. JFerber says:

    I’ve recently come to believe that Marilyn was killed by medical malpractice. I understand that two separate doctors came to her house to tranquilize her at different times that night. They overdosed her and she died. Back in the day, studio doctors would make house calls to the stars. One of the stars of Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train, Robert Walker was overdosed by a studio doctor at the age of 32. Robert was deeply alcoholic, depressed and enraged that David O. Selznik “stole away” and married Robert’s wife, Jennifer Jones. Jones immediately won an Academy Award for Selznick’s The Song of Bernadette. Robert and Jennifer had two boys together, too.
