Bella Hadid in Burberry at the Met Gala: Burberry completely missed the theme?

Here is the Burberry contingent from the 2022 Met Gala. They were making a big deal about how many people Burberry dressed on the red carpet shows, and it’s been several years since Burberry went all out and dressed a full table for the gala. Burberry’s looks were a mixed bag of highs and lows. Here’s Bella Hadid in Burberry. The less said about this, the better. I can’t believe they did this to her!

Kate Moss had my favorite Burberry look. Was it on-theme? No. None of these looks are on-theme. But it was a great tuxedo dress, really beautiful.

Nicki Minaj wore a Burberry half-dress with what looks like leather pants (leggings?) and a baseball cap. This is awful?

Naomi Campbell’s look was so conservative for her! I don’t get why so many people interpreted “Gilded Glamour” as “black dresses,” but it happened all f–king night. I get that the detailing on this dress is exquisite, but I still find this too monkish and severe on Naomi. The face-jewelry looks pretty cool though.

Bad Bunny. Holy crap, this is awful!!

Irina Shayk, girl, this is too much leather for “gilded glamour.”

    This year’s met gala fashion was awful, majority of them missed the theme. I think the best dresses were Blake, Dora cat and that reporter that was trending on twitter yesterday

  2. SAS says:

    At least Stormzy wore white tie! Dudes, you literally had one job.

    Nicki may have been worst dressed of the night.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Nicki. My gawd. She looks awful and I mean that in my most disgusting voice I could ever muster up. Burberry looks like it vomited the berry part in their designs last night. Was it Dominatrix in the Gilded Age of the Matrix?

      Yet, Stormzy was perfection!

      WTF Burberry…….

  3. Miranda says:

    Bella’s dress is the cheapest-looking “high fashion” I’ve seen in quite some time. Does Burberry decide who wears what, or did Bella have a selection and was like, “I wanna look like a broke high school goth chick going to prom”?

    Nicki Minaj was the worst dressed (and one of the worst human beings?) of the night, though.

    • LightPurple says:

      Anna Wintour decides who wears what.

      • Miranda says:

        Really? Well if that’s the case, I have a new question: What did Bella Hadid do to piss off Anna Wintour?

  4. OzJennifer says:

    Kate Moss looks beautiful and I love that tuxedo dress. Pockets! Bella’s face is beautiful, but the dress is terrible.

  5. Gabriella says:

    Bad Bunny looks amazing and thank god! A man who did something interesting!

    • Léna says:

      I tend to agree, he looks at least different from other men. But I couldn’t stop laughing at first when I saw the picture on the post.

      Stormzy is beautiful IMO, I love it

    • Snoozer says:

      Agreed! He looks like a stylised person in a painting or a sculpture. It’s hideous but it’s pure art and I LOVE it!! The hair, everything!

      Stormzy also looked great.

  6. AmB says:

    Maybe Bella has hearing issues, or had bad phone reception … they said “Met Gala” and she heard “Morticia Addams”?

  7. BeeCee says:

    Irina Shayk looks like she’s trying to audition for the next Matrix movie.

  8. HeatherC says:

    Why do designers (and the celebs that wear them) think “looking at fashion history through a modern lens” means Goth Prom Night or Goth goes Burlesque?

  9. Jennifer says:

    Poor Nicky Minaj’s boobs look like her cousin’s friend’s testicles.

  10. Delphine says:

    No no no no no. None of this is good. Bella looks like she’s attending a punk rock renaissance faire, Kate Moss looks like the middle aged wife of an ambassador, Irina looks like she’s auditioning for the next Matrix and like she hasn’t slept in a week, Nikki is falling out of whatever that monstrosity is, Naomi just looks boring, and Bad Bunny looks like a cartoon.

  11. antipodean says:

    WOW……Stormzy…….. theme or no theme, is a total snack.

  12. JFerber says:

    Kate always brings it. And Irina looks good in anything and I mean anything.

  13. JFerber says:

    I don’t think Bella looked good at all. I know some people love her as a model and think she’s gorgeous. I never have. She just never brings it, in my opinion.

  14. Berlin says:

    Bella looks like she works the B&D room in the brothel on Deadwood. (interpreted through a modern lens of course!. Ugh)

  15. JFerber says:

    Who is Stormzy? His dignity and style are beautiful. He’s beautiful.

  16. Ally says:

    Were Bella / Burberry not going for Boldini…? They’d be completely on theme.
