If you went to the Met Gala, what would you wear?
What would I wear?
I’m sitting here scrolling through all the images on Vogue.com and focusing only on the actual dresses. Thinking about which ones I like and why. I’m looking through them and noticing a lot of mid-driffs, which are so hot and in fashion right now, and if I had a nice mid-driff I’d totally be all over that. There are also a lot of OTT ( over the top) dresses, and they are so distracting, so much happening, for example the Rodarte dress worn by Shailene Woodley. Also not really sure how I’m feeling about all of the volume in most of the dresses I’ve seen. I think maybe it is the stiffness of the fabric that I’m not a fan of. Or is it that I’m just not used to that look?
My favourites are probably these:
Anna is my most fave. And I would have to say the Olson twins come in pretty close to being my fave too.
The thing I was actually just thinking is ‘don’t be so quick to judge Juliet’. Some of these gowns have taken hours upon hours to create and bring to life. And no photograph will do most of them any justice at all. I have a very special video I just re-found, one of my friends showed me it a while ago and after watching that you can understand what i mean about appreciating all these creations on the red carpet.
That there is a video showing how some of Chanel’s Haute Couture pieces are delicately made by hand and you will notice one of the items is in fact the exact Chanel dress the lovely Anna Wintour is wearing. So much love and want for that dress.
Also how come I only just found out about Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds?! Such a hot couple.
