Met Gala 2018

In case you've been living under a rock this week or your internet's been out for a few days, Monday was the annual Met Gala (formally known as the Costume Institute Gala).  Held the first Monday of each May, this year's theme was "Heavenly Bodies:  Fashion and the Catholic Imagination."  The exhibition runs until October 2018 and includes pieces donated from the Vatican.

Like everyone else who was live tweeting that night, I love seeing the different interpretations of the exhibition (while the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute annual charity affair is not a "themed" event, many guests and designers choose to wear creations with a (sometimes not so) subtle nod to the show. 

While I may not necessarily like some of the outfits, I do appreciate the beauty of the workmanship and design.  Here are some of the thoughts I had while sitting on the couch in my sweats and being all judge-y: 

I thought Amanda Seyfriend looked like she stepped out of a Raphael or Bottecilli painting.  Her hair, make-up, gown and accessories were stunning! 

I mean, come on.  That close-up is pure perfection.  When she turned and looked at the cameras, she owned that moment. 

Cardi B.  She's a couple of months pregnant and looked radiant. 

I love Gigi Hadid and her gown was reminiscent of a church stained glass window.
J-Lo.  That leg! 

Kate Upton played it safe but from the shoulder's up she looked like a Renaissance princess.

Kim Kardashian.

While I respect and support the message, the presentation just seemed off to me. 

Lynda Carter (the original Wonder Woman).  Regal.  Elegant.


Rosie Huntington-Whitley.  An angel. 


Scarlett Johanssen.  This was awful.  There.  I said it. 

Sarah Jessica Parker reminded me of the Queen of Hearts. 
Zendaya's take on Joan of Arc.  I like it. 
At first I did not care for this look (that hair bow was throwing me off) but the Vera Wang gown is basically, incredibly, the Sistine Chapel. 

I love the edgy boots and her make-up was flawless! 

Olivia Munn.  This outfit looks better in black and white.  The color really didn't suit her complexion. 
Love Ashley Graham.  I think this would be better for an awards show, the Oscars or the Grammy's perhaps.  A little too safe.
