This summer, think cotton candy pink, snow cone stained lips and greased lightening. Because the only thing more important than carnival food is the way your skirt falls across the Ferris wheel seat.
I have a thing for themes—events, birthdays, dinner parties, holidays, etc. But, themes are only fun if everyone sticks to them. No one wants to be the only person in costume at a Halloween party. The same goes for the Met Gala, or Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The star-studded event, held on May 2 in New York City and co-chaired by Anna Wintour, Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, and Apple’s Chief Design Officer Jonathan Ive, was themed, “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.”
When the cameras started flashing on the first Monday in May, a couture silver robot army charged the red carpet, and we were all a little confused. Fashion and celebrity culture fanatics around the world quickly realized either no one knew what Manus or Machina meant, or no one cared to dress in theme. I saw parts of Madonna I never wanted to see. Taylor Swift looked like Jenny Humphrey at prom. The event was one giant missed opportunity. I for one, expected more from Lady Gaga.
Black is chic. Black will always be chic.
I would argue that it’s the only color one can wear head to toe and completely alone. Humor me for a minute, and imagine this ensemble in yellow.
Do you see my point? We can’t all be Cher Horowitz.
