Maisie Williams in Thom Browne at the Met Gala: very on theme?

Maisie Williams and Christine Baranski were both in Thom Browne and were interviewed together for the Vogue livestream. Christine mentioned that it was her first Met Gala, but Maisie said it was her second and she would show her the ropes! It was cute and funny. Maisie had on this Thom Browne look which was a white tight corset and black unbuttoned overlay. It’s very gilded age and I like her severe styling too. Her hair looks shellacked on but when you zoom in you can see it’s a hat that resembles curly hair. She looks like a Kewpie doll!

Christine Baranski was in a black and white Thom Browne skirt suit with a caped jacket. BOSS. She better get invited to more of these, but I don’t think she cares.

Lizzo was in Thom Browne with this gold floral embroidered oversized jacket. She carried her flute on the red carpet and played a little, which was cute. She was having so much fun and it really showed.

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II had easily my favorite menswear look in a Thom Browne tux with little butterfly embellishments and actual tails! He does not get enough credit for wearing the hell out of fashion and I hope to see him at more events. You get the impression that he keeps his head down and works hard and that’s why he doesn’t get more press.

Speaking of a nice tux here’s David Harbour cheesing it up with his wife, Lily Allen. Lily is in Chanel. The rainbow stripes and feathers on this are so pretty.

Lucy Boynton was also in Chanel. This is a rather standard gown from Chanel.

    LOVE Christine Baranski.

    David Harbour was cosplaying the Monopoly Man. Which is actually completely in line with the theme.

    Everyone here ooked great, though I feel like I would have liked Maisey’s a little bit more if the dark color wasn’t black. That’s a quibble though.

  3. Cherry says:

    Everyone looks great, love Maisie’s styling, I almost didn’t recognize her!
    David Harbour and Lily Allen make a cute couple. I can’t get over how thin Lily is these days, though.

  4. Léna says:

    Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is a stunning man. I adore him!

    Lily Allen looks very cute here, she looks like she’s better? Or maybe I don’t remember well but she seems very frail in previous pap pictures

    • Anners says:

      Yahya Abdul-Mateen definitely had the best menswear look of the night – he knocked it out of the park! My only quibble is that I wish his coat had been lined with either gold or black – the white was too jarring. Otherwise – perfection!

      LOVED Lizzo’s jacket, disappointed by the dress, but she looks lovely and radiant.

      • Busybody says:

        Yes, Yahya looks amazing! I think those are (gilded) lilies, not butterflies as embellishments

  5. Ainsley7 says:

    I feel like Maisie made the same mistake as many others did about what “gilded age” was. It’s 1870-1900. So, her dress is good, but her hair leans too much 1920’s to me. There was a lot of 1920’s leaning stuff though. It’s a “cooler” era and easier to reference. Lily Allen’s dress feels 1920’s+1960’s for example.

    Lizzo’s coat was so good. It was completely let down by the dress underneath. It doesn’t look like it was fitted to her at all. I also get they were going for a dress that suggested a corset with garters, but it made it bunch up all weird. Should have either been shorter or in a less stiff material. It bothers me a lot because it feels like designers in general still don’t actually respect women who aren’t the “correct size.” They offer to dress them, but then don’t adjust things to look good on the individual or fall on the old cliche of something oversized. Lizzie is beautiful and she deserves the same amount of time and attention to detail as the models they are used to dressing.

    • Eurydice says:

      I think of this theme in a more metaphorical way. The Gilded Age was a time of a lot of change, political, economic, social – one could say that about the 20’s and 60’s.

      ITA about Lizzo.

  6. Trina says:

    I honestly thought Lizzo had the best look of the night. She blew me away. I was sitting there minding my business on Twitter, and then she tweeted a picture as she was about to leave for the gala, and I was so happy. She stunned. Next thing I know, and I mean literally moments later, the roe story broke. And then I wasn’t looking at met pictures any more.

    • Kirsten says:

      She should have her own post. She looked phenomenal and was right on theme.

  7. Qsan says:

    Christine Baranski is the boss. And David Harbour went ALL in. Love the cigar, top hat and pocket watch chain.

    But I’m here to say that Yahya is simply amazingly dressed and is my new celebrity crush.

  8. Gillysirl says:

    I love the fun details in all of these- especially Thomas Browne.

    One of the best parts of the Met is seeing how widely the theme is interpreted. There’s a official “gilded age” and there’s what people think of the gilded age- like with Prada having more of at 50’s – 60’s vibe.

  9. CTgirl says:

    Maisie Williams’ style is so underrated. She likes a risk and she’s always interesting.

    • FC says:

      Obsessed with this look from Maisie Williams. One of the best dressed of the night.

  10. LAR says:

    Yahya Abdul Mateen nailed it! Formal tux with embellishments that were both elegant and interesting.

  11. Otaku fairy says:

    I love Maisie’s look.

  12. JFerber says:

    I think Maisie’s hair is marcelled (a very hot look in the 1920’s). She’s super cute. Love Lizzo there and her flute! Yahya Abdul-Marteen II is so gorgeous! And that smile. What TV or movies has he been in?
