Rosalia in Givenchy at the Met Gala: excessive and on point?

Singer Rosalia only recently came onto my radar, I remember covering her at the first half of this neverending Met Gala, which was in September. She wore a dramatically long Rick Owens gown at the time, and she brought it again in Givenchy last night. I love this elaborate off white gown with beading, feathers, chiffon and what looks like a boned corset (it’s probably not and is just the design). The metal “G” bedazzled neck strap is a great detail. She’s got my attention now.

Claire Danes was in Lanvin at the Met Gala with her handsome husband, Hugh Dancy. This is more 1920s, but it’s fine. The netting around her face is interesting. I’m invested in Claire and Hugh for some reason, probably because they’re both such great actors. They’ve been married since 2009 and have sons Cyrus, nine, and Rowan, three and a half.

Chloe Bailey was in a gold Area gown that’s doing weird things to her proportions. It’s very Jessica Rabbit and cartoonish. I like the golden snitch thing around her neck.

Camila Mendes was in gold sequined and tasseled Ami and this was one of my favorite looks. I don’t know how on theme it was but this whole look is amazing.

    I didn’t see Rosalia last night, but my god, she nailed it! This is SO beautiful!! This is the theme exactly.
    I loved Camila Mendes’ dress when I saw it. It’s so pretty.

      Yes, finally someone who understood that the theme was not 1920’s / jazz age! I didn’t like the sheer parts (I am so tired of see-through and sheer in general) but overall really she got it right.

    Chloe was one of my favourites!! This was like Jessica Rabbit with tumours. Weird, artistic and layers of meaning…

    Mark Twain coined the Gilded Age as ‘glittering on the surface but corrupt underneath.’ It was a period in which the very rich draped themselves in the riches they gained from bribery, corruption, failed governance and worker exploitation.

    This dress captures that PERFECTLY. Like the corruption is bubbling to the glorious surface in grotesque ways. LOVE IT!!!

    You see i knew I wasnt crazy,i said it cannot be a year since the last Met. Are they making up for the ones they missed during the pandemic?

    Rosalia was perfect. Sexy, on-theme without being costumey. Flawless. Best look of the night, hands-down.

    Camilla Mendes’ dress is fab but please tell me it’s just a weird picture and she didn’t do something horrible to her face.
