The MET Costume Gala is this super fancy costume party that happens in New York every year and is always full of fancy celebrities looking fancy. The only problem being 90% of the celebrities who attend seem to forget that it IS a costume party with a theme.
The MET Ball always has a theme for people to dress up according to, but most of the time everyone just overlooks that and puts on something to make them look pretty and sexy, because fuck a themed costume party, right? The only bitch who seems to actually read the invitation to this thing every year and make note of the theme is Rihanna.
This years theme was Rei Kawakubo/Commes des Garcons: The Art of the In-Between. Rei Kawakubo is an avant-guard fashion designer who does not produce even remotely traditional fashion. Like, it’s more like crazed art pieces than it is clothes. Here are some examples:
And here’s what bitches wore:
Just pretty people looking pretty and obviously NOT getting the memo that this is a fucking costume party and has always been a costume party and ALWAYS has a very specific theme! Ugh!
But then there’s Rihanna, who finds out the theme, does her research, and rolls in looking like the messy ass costume party bitch she is. THIS is how you’re supposed to look at this shit:
The thing about costume parties is that you’re supposed to show up looking over the top! So while everyone else was dressed up like it was the goddamn Oscars, Rihanna shows up looking like she’s attending a costume party and I really appreciate that.
Side note: my blogging will be slightly sparse for the next two weeks as I’m in Florida on vacation, I’ll still be blogging though! Last year I was in New York without my computer when Beyoncé dropped “Lemonade” and I swore to myself “never again will I go on vacation without a computer so I can blog.” So don’t worry, if anything major drops, I’ll be here! I was really hoping Bella Hadid would go all crazy on Selena Gomez at a MET Gala after party, but alas, that did not happen. Oh well, we can’t win em all!
