Sydney Sweeney in Miu Miu at the Met Gala: lovely and sunny?

Sydney Sweeney’s hair and makeup were so glam last night. I wasn’t sure her blush and sequin Miu Miu gown was on theme, but I googled it and Lagerfeld had plenty of dresses like this. They even stuck a black bow across the hem. Sydney is everywhere lately and I’m sort-of OK with that. She looks like she’s having fun. I’d like her to go full couple-mode with Glen Powell, as Kaiser has been hoping for too, but we’ll have to see. As far as we know she’s still with her fiance.

Emma Chamberlain is a social media darling, which is baffling to me because she was awful at interviewing celebrities last night. I was surprised at how thoroughly annoyed I was by her. This makeup seems perfect for her personality, as does this ill-fitting unfinished-looking blue Miu Miu suit skirt, accented with ankle socks and dyed-to-match platform pumps.

Aubrey Plaza and Madelyn Cline were in Stella McCartney, and like most of McCartney’s looks these gowns are just OK. At least they’re not actively bad.

Gigi Hadid was in Givenchy. I liked some elements of this like the sheer train, the mesh overlay and the gloves, but overall it was a mess. The hip cutouts are too much.

    Bad last pic of her. She looks crossed-eyed to me.

    • Sof says:

      Who, Sydney? She looked like that in most pictures posted on twitter last night.

    Gigi is so stinking cute! I know that’s not what she was going for but her smile is so darling. I didn’t like the gown at all but I liked her hair and makeup. Sydney Sweeney looked like a hillbilly going to a fancy party. I just didn’t like her look.

  3. Malcolm says:

    Sydney Sweeney wins the night – she’s kind of the “it” girl of the moment, right? I’d say her look and then the Balmain boy crew are also top contenders. Kylie is a close runner-up, I actually don’t hate her “fashion gwerl” thing. Anyway, to be rich and famous.

    • SquiddusMaximus says:

      Hmmm. They’re branding her as a ScarJo, I think. Bombshell boobs, hair, etc. Frankly, kind of boring and unoriginal.

      • Peanut Butter says:

        The ScarJo comparison is dead on. It was so predictably boring on ScarJo and is just as predictably boring on Sweeney, maybe more so

      • RL says:

        Damn, you nailed it with the ScarJo. That must be why I’m unimpressed – that, and her MAGA family.

      • Mallory says:

        ScarJo, then JLaw & now Sydney Sweeney….boring, imo

  4. Kirsten says:

    Sydney looks really good and I love her whole look, but Emma is the most on-brand out of everyone here.

  5. JM says:

    Sydney’s styled like she’s on set for Hair.

  6. Coco says:

    This Sweeney person dress looks cheap and hair and makeup are just boring .

    Emma outfit is so bad in so many ways .

    Sydney Sweeney just doesn’t do it for me for some reason. Don’t get me wrong, she’s obviously beautiful, but I don’t think she elevates the clothing. She gives pretty girl at prom vibes to me. Maybe she just needs a bit more experience on the carpet still (especially posing), but this look still does feel like a pretty girl in a pretty dress and nothing more. I’m trying not to knock her too hard, because there’s definitely a learning curve, but I am not blown away (and I don’t like the bottom half of her dress; it looks like they needed extra fabric to be full length and secured it with a ribbon).

    I don’t care for Aubrey Plaza’s dress (but love the hair and makeup), but I like Madelyn Cline’s! It’s referencing the Chloe Autumn/Winter 1983-1984 collection (the shower collection), but a bit more tamed to fit the Stella McCartney aesthetic.

  8. Peanut Butter says:

    Still not a Sweeney fan; she is definitely not growing on me, and that’s even if she didn’t reek of MAGA adjacency. I really like Gigi but not this look, or any of the looks here, really.

  9. Normades says:

    Sydney always looks so dead in the eyes…except when she was with Glen, they literally lit up. She does not look like she’s having fun.

  10. Sof says:

    I like Sydney and liked her look but agree with some twitter people: she needs a stylist who knows how to dress her t*ts, almost everything she wears looks uncomfortable on the chest area. Last time even her grandmother told her so! and she answered that wearing smaller clothes was trendy which… I genuinely hope it was just a joke and not something she was actually told by brands who can’t be bothered to give actress clothes that fit properly.

  11. Grant says:

    I love Sydney’s makeup and her big CMA awards hair. I do not like the dress. I don’t love the nude and black pairing. I also think the black bows make the whole thing look sloppy and unfinished.

    Gigi’s is ok too. So much satin and so much sheer/lace last night!

  12. abby says:

    emma’s fit was bad, ill-fitting, with a boring interpretation of the theme and her styling was awful. how is she a fashion girl?

  13. Fender says:

    Emma Chamberetc, what a boring, talentless, waste of space. She is the gen Z Tavi Gevinson.

  14. jferber says:

    I loved the trio of Stella McCartney, Aubrey Plaza and Madelyn Cline. Darling, hot and on-point. Didn’t like Gigi’s dress somehow. And don’t get me started on Sweeney. Dress is boring. Face is boring. I think she was trying to give Blue Steel? She always looks arrogant and like the meanest girl at the prom. Just don’t like her at all.

  15. AnneL says:

    Madelyn Cline looks nice. It’s not the most interesting dress but it’s flattering and classy and looks beautifully made.

    I am just laughing at myself for knowing who she is. I am too old to be watching “The Outer Banks,” but got drawn into it when we were in a short-term rental situation and didn’t have cable. The previous occupants had it set up so we could watch it, and because I grew up going to the beach in the Carolinas I turned it on. Now we have watched all three seasons, lol. It was/is weirdly addicting to me.

    That show is HUGE. It’s remarkable. Talented cast, though. Especially her and Rudy Pankow, to me. But they’re all good.
