Normani in Christian Siriano at the Met Gala: Hot but not on theme?

Christian Siriano’s dresses at the Met Gala didn’t seem particularly on theme for Gilded Glamour. They looked like variations of his red carpet gowns, which are lovely. The CS people captioned the Instagram above “The Gilded Age but make it modern!” which just seems like a cop out. I like the hat but the tiered gathered velvet skirt and shoulder ruffles don’t go with the cutout midriff and neckline. Normani looks incredible though. She credits her abs to pilates!

Alexa Chung was in a classic white off the shoulder Christian Siriano with a draped bustline. This is beautiful but it’s more flapper than Gilded Age era.

Danish tennis player Caroline Wozniacki was in a Siriano with side cutouts, balloon sleeves and a cape. I do love a cape and the light blue and navy really go together. Other than that it’s a bit of a miss.

    I think with the big sleeves and hat this is a better interpretation of the theme than a most of the basic gowns we saw to be honest, it’s at least clearly inspired by Gilded Age fashion and she looks great. I’d have loved it in another colour though, a rich green or purple maybe.

    Normani’s look would’ve been perfect had she covered her midriff.

      I am getting Carmen Miranda vibes off of Normani’s look…plus her gown has three different styles competing with each other. The skirt, the neck and the top.

      As for everyone else, I am having trouble with identifying the theme of the Gala.

      As for Alexa Chung, I am loving her entire look! The shoes are fabulous too!! As for Wozniacki, I wish her gown didn’t have the cutouts, otherwise it would have been lovely!

    I loved the Normani look. For me it was a deconstructed corset with the caging up top instead of at the waist.

    Def better than all the spangly sleek dresses wrt the theme.

    I would NEVER have guessed Alexa Chung’s dress was Siriano! It’s so restrained! I think it’s beautiful. And the shoes and purse give it a dash of fun.

    I can see the Gilded age architectural elements in all of these designs.

    I adore Alexa Chung’s dress, but it feels wrong for this event. For the Oscars or Emmy’s? YES, absolutely.

    Stretching, Alexa’s gown could be 1930s, but def not flapper.

    I reckon Normani’s look is on theme, the silhouette is the right era – just serving abs instead of a corset, which is a fascinating statement 🖤

    I like all of the looks. Normani is so damn pretty. Alexa looks ravishing and Caroline looked good, too.
