MET Gala and Our Disappointment

After Nyne Fashion Editor Lauren Reed shares her eye-watering outrage and disappointment of this year’s Met Gala wardrobe woes.

Basically, what happened was: Rihanna wore an omelette, SJP wore a flame hat, and as much as everyone is loving-on Bey’s look, I prefer the Queen to wear a bit more. Sorry. Keep it classy B.

Rihanna in GuoPei

Rihanna is having a moment with fur, nothing excuses this. Did she not learn from Madonna that capes are never a great idea? Just why yellow, I have never in my life seen anyone look that great in yellow. It comes down to the fact I prefer my omelettes on my plate rather than on Rihanna’s back.

Anne Hathaway in Ralph Lauren

Does someone mind explaining this to me? Why is Anne Hathaway dressed as a Jedi? I don’t think I will ever understand who decided this would work and I don’t think I want to!

Solange Knowles in Giles

Normally (for me at least) Solange nails it every time. But everyone has to have their bad days and for Solange it doesn’t get any worse than this. OK, I do actually love this print, but the top half is all wrong! And if that train is coming of the back, then I don’t have any words.

Beyoncé in Givenchy

Unfortunately neither Solange of her sister B were doing it for me last night. Now don’t get me wrong, Beyoncé is flawless in everything she puts on, but I’m pretty sure you can see her Lady B in this. Cover up.

Katy Perry in Moschino

Considering the only collection Jeremy Scott has ever produced that I have liked was the SS15 Barbie’s, I was never going to be a big fan. Add to this the short hair I think this might be one of Katy’s worst looks.

I have no words.

Uma Thurman in Atelier Versace

This upsets me the most because Uma is so close to perfection. A little less push-up on the boob front, a little lower on the slit and she would have absolutely nailed it. Those earrings are the bomb.
