Jenna Ortega really nailed the Met Gala theme in Thom Browne, right?

I was really impressed with Thom Browne’s interpretations of Karl Lagerfeld’s aesthetic, as I said in a previous post. Jenna Ortega was maybe the best look from Thom Browne – this had everything, so much so that I would have mistaken it for Chanel. The way she’s styled it very Chanel too, the bangs, the makeup, everything. I love her, she nailed this.

Glenn Close in Erdem. Yeah… I think there’s a misconception that if you have a huge dress with a long-ass train, it’s always going to be an epic fashion moment, and that’s just not the case. Yes, Glenn’s dress is big… but it’s also just not a good dress. It looks like she’s wearing a huge dust ruffle. The jewelry is great though.

Margaret Qualley in Chanel. It’s not enough. She was one of the few women in a minidress and hers was the most blah, the biggest nothingburger. It’s the Met Gala not a movie premiere.

Emily Ratajkowski in Tory Burch. Jesus Christ, those bangs are atrocious. Even bangs-defenders are screaming into a pillow with this hairstyle. The dress is just kind of boring though.

Phoebe Bridgers also wore Tory Burch. It’s fine.

      Jenna’s was an excellent interpretation to the theme. No notes.

    • Lucy says:

      Jenna was one of my favorite looks of the night.

      Phoebe and her dress were amazing too, it felt more like a 1930s movie premiere look though.

    • Normades says:

      Jenna just get it and has it. I understand why all the kids think she is so cool.

    • Abby says:

      I like her interpretation the best!

    • acha says:

      Jenna Ortega is just fantastic. I love this look, but also her self confidence and ownership of Wednesday as a role — just so good.

    (*looks around nervously*👀)

    I thought Emily pulled off the bangs. (*ducks*)

    • trillion says:

      I agree. Her bangs look cute and up her style factor.

    • Birdie says:

      me too…

    • Mallory says:

      Agreed. I like the bangs, especially with the hairstyle & her whole look made me gasp. She’s hot.

    • Josephine says:

      I have never once liked her look until the gala. it was so refreshing to see her look more subdued that I did not recognize her at all. i really like that she tried a very different look for her and I really liked it.

    • dlc says:

      Me too! And Jenna is beautiful but I wish she had done something less reminiscent of Wednesday.

  3. JM says:

    Ooo Jenna is my favorite look. Absolutely nailed it.

    What did Em do to her face? She was so gorgeous but something is wrong now but I can’t put my finger on it.

    Jenna’s look is the best interpretation of the lot. She looked great, she really is adorable. Much like Maud Apatow, Margaret Qualley always looks boring and like a suburban housewife than ingénue. Both are just blah. Emily looks fine, even in her struggle bangs. But she’s boring and always only looks fine. Both Tory dresses were fine, but I liked them better than Mike Kors.

  5. Sandra says:

    Kaiser, I was flabbergasted that you were almost positive about Jenna’s bangs, then along came Emily ruining it! 😂😂😂

  6. K says:

    Jenna is all. I would have loved to see her pose with Lil Nas. The hotness 🔥

  7. Jessica says:

    My fave Thom Browne look of the night was Daniel Ricciardo!

  8. one of the marys says:

    I really like Margaret’s hair and makeup.
    I’d like to see Emily’s dress on someone else, Jessica Chastain or Nicole Kidman. I think it needs different colouring. I really like this dress but not on Emily for some reason. The bosom maybe 🤷‍♀️

  9. Grant says:

    Love Jenna’s look. I don’t hate Glenn’s dress at all. I think it is a cool fashion moment, albeit a bit conservative.

  10. s808 says:

    jenna nailed it! and for such a shorty she’s wearing that dress, it’s not wearing her. love.

  11. BillyPilgrim says:

    I love Glenn’s hair! Want to to try that style

  12. DogMom says:

    Jenna Ortega slayed and I loved Phoebe Bridgers’ dress. Maybe not the most dramatic ensemble of the night, but I thought she looked so pretty.

  13. Melissa says:

    Phoebe Bridgers at the Met Gala! Daang, girl. Good for her

  14. sparrow says:

    Margaret Qualley. For all that it seems really underdone, at least she’ll be the comfiest in the taxi on the way home. And I love Glenn Close – what a monstrosity but great fun.

  15. tealily says:

    I love that color on Glenn. I think I’d actually like the dress more without the train. Just a shawl would do it!

  16. jferber says:

    Jenna is super-cute, but she really does look 14 years old. Emily looks like Cleopatra, and not in a good way.
