We’d like to say a little prayer for every Met Gala attendee who adhered to this year’s theme—Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination—and it seemed like waaaaay more did than in previous years. The overwhelming majority (Rihanna, Cardi B, Janelle Monae and Ariana Grande among them) were above reproach, but there were also more than a few letdowns (a very meh Miley Cyrus, for one) and some definite… conversation starters (looking at you, France McDormand, Katy Perry and Greta Gerwig).
Let’s be real: best-dressed lists are fine, but best- and worst-dressed lists are more fun. (And yes, we know that one woman’s ‘hallelujah!’ lewk is another’s ‘hell no.’) Herewith, the FLARE team’s unfiltered, occasionally contradictory takes on Met Gala 2018 fashion.
Worst: Selena Gomez
“I love Selena Gomez (see me twinning with her here!), but this look is a hard no from me. The dress looks like something she packed for Coachella but didn’t have the chance to wear and it doesn’t fit with the theme, IMHO. I also don’t know what happened with her beauty look—that fake tan and nude lip combo is not okay.” —Erinn Stewart, assistant fashion & beauty editor
