MET gala 2017: Coachella with bad gowns

I’m very cranky with MET gala 2017. I realise that the Kardashification of our culture means now more than ever, we will see people who are famous for not-doing-much and I AM making my peace with it.

That is more than I ever need to see of freaking Bella Hadid.

However given that apparently Anna Wintour cut people from MET gala 2017 to make it more exclusive (I’m sorry Coca, you are worth so much more), I expected the invite list to be so much better.

Of course, the expectation was that Beyoncé, Rihanna, SJP, and Madonna would all make an appearance as with previous years (this year: no, yes, no, yes.). But this year there was a lot of people-who-don’t-do-much – Hailey Baldwin, Sophia Richie, Rita Ora, Jaden Smith (holding his cut dreadlocks no less), Paris Jackson, and then an entire section of people who have no real association with fashion – Joe Jonas, Yolanda Hadid (wtf), Diplo, James Corden, Wiz Khalifa (!) the list goes on and on.

Everyone was terribly dressed (see above image) and no-one followed the theme at all except maybe Rihanna and Zendaya. So basically it was Coachella with bad gowns.

Why not invite people with interesting taste that love fashion, who might be able to interpret the themes. How about Cate Blanchett? How about Victoria Beckham? Nicole Kidman is almost always wearing something thought-provoking, she would have nailed the brief. In other words for the love of God, INVITE FASHION PEOPLE. Geez. I lay my crankiness squarely at your feet Katy Perry and Anna Wintour.
