The Met Gala 2015 Part One
And so last night, the annual high fashion, red carpet extravaganza that is the Met Gala took place and let’s just say it was blinding. Not only for the fashions which took the theme of ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ to heart, and looked like an explosion inside a Chinese firework factory, which obviously is a compliment of the highest order, but also for the choice of red carpet date. Cher and Marc Jacobs? The return of Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz?? The dates alone were enough to eclipse the exhibition. Anyway, back to the clothes. We had Rihanna channeling a freshly hatched Big Bird in Guo Pei, a confection that apparently took two years to create, Cher doing Cher with Marc Jacobs on her arm, instead of a clutch, well you can fit more things in a man than you can in a tiny purse, and Julianne Moore as a flaming siren. Georgia May Jagger is living my personal dream/ life goal of geisha madame in lilac Gucci, while F.K.A. Twigs is looking very racy in some Christopher Kane body lace. Notice the finger pinching a nipple on top of her nipple, and the penis at the top of the thigh split. Jennifer Connelly and Emily Blunt, in Louis Vuitton and Prada respectively are masterclasses in restrained elegance and consort rather nicely with Jamie Bochert making a very strong case for a remake of The Crow with her as the crow in Marc Jacobs. And yes we know there was no crow in The Crow. But it’s a remake, so why not have one this time round? Lisa Marie, accessorised with a rather sombre, well for him, Lenny Kravitz is like a jolt of electricity from those panel things that bring you back to life from the brink of death, and as for Donatella and J-Lo, we are truly not worthy of such beauty.
