I guess I better wrap up my comments about the 2018 Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art before the 2019 Met Gala gets here! On Monday, I bestowed my prestigious Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award upon Lena Waithe.
On Tuesday, I started going through the best of the rest of the attendees, with special attention paid to Cardi B. (Don’t miss the New York Times story about hanging out with Cardi as she got dressed for the event.)
Anyway, there are still a few folks I wanted to mention. Even though my designing friend Stacy Lomman thought Katy Perry’s angel wings made her look like a Victoria’s Secret wannabe, I admired the commitment necessary to cope with such a giant accessory.
Lana del Rey wore her wings on her head, but I was more enthralled with the “Seven Sorrows of Mary” sacred heart on the bodice of her Gucci gown.
I have a thing for pierced hearts, as you can see from my (now sold) one-of-a-kind Vampire Diana ring design.
The #WendyBrandes Vampire Diana ring is 18K yellow gold, with a removable sterling silver "stake." Perfect for #VampireDiaries, #Buffy, and #Twilight fans looking for a little luxe. Or as @thejewelryaltar pointed out around Valentine's Day, a punctured heart could be the ultimate #statementring for a happy divorcee! #LoveGold #instavideo #video
As for the men, Jaden Smith has a knack for choosing an accessory that no one else has. Last year, he brought his own cut-off dreads. This year, he brought his own gold record.
I was really hoping one of the guys would show up dressed as comedian Don Novello’s character, Father Guido Sarducci …
… but Chadwick Boseman completely outdid that.
Also on the blog this week, I noted that Madonna had a slow-fashion moment at the Met Gala afterparty in her Versace dress from 1995. And the one blog post I did that had nothing to do with the Met Gala was about how to choose the right engagement ring style for you.
