The Punk-Themed MET Gala is Met With Mixed Reviews
Date: May 6
The Metropolitan Museum of Art holds a themed Gala every year (this year's was "Punk" following the opening of the Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition) to raise money for its Costume Institute. Many livestreamed to see the who's who and what they had on. Beyonce was an honorary chair of the event, rocking a gold and black Givenchy gown, and Madonna was a show-stopper in her sexy punk gear.
It wasn't all hot outfits and A-list stars, though. In addition to the trainwreck of a livestream (what makes a host think they can interrupt Vivienne Westwood?), some of the outfits, like Kim Kardashian's, were destined for ridicule and fashion policing. Kim K's outfit shocked many at the event for all the wrong reasonsâ€”not only because she's very pregnant, but because of the horrendous vintage-floral-couch-like print. We still don't know why Kim or Kanye thought this was a good idea, but it provided lots of laughs, so we thank them.
