Worst dressed at this year’s Met Gala

Worst dressed at this year’s Met Gala

The Met Gala, a huge event in the fashion industry, is one of the most exclusive and elaborate parties that anyone could be invited to. Held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the gala is used as a fundraiser to raise money for the museum. This year’s Met had a theme of Gilded Age, so 1870s to early 1900s fashion. Everyone was expecting to see light colors, corsets, and crazy hats, however, that is not what they saw. Overall, most of the outfits were underwhelming, with a few exceptions of Blake Lively, Gigi Hadid, and Shawn Mendes. They carried the red carpet this year, with the meaning of their dresses, and the upcycled materials they used. Although I still cannot overlook the worst dressed this year, Kylie Jenner.
Kylie’s dress was a white gown, with a white sheer top. To accessorize, she wore a white backwards baseball cap with an attached veil. It was to pay tribute to the late designer Virgil Abloh, founder of the brand Off White, who was supposed to attend the Met back in 2020 before it was canceled due to Covid-19.
Although the dress had an amazing backstory, I can not look over how atrocious the gown is. The dress doesn’t fit the theme, it doesn’t flatter her gorgeous body, and what the frick was that hat; nothing seemed to go together. The gown looked like a wedding dress, with a white sheer shirt from Forever 21, and a baseball cap that she stapled a veil to. I was expecting so much more from her, due to her past looks dropping my jaw to the floor. It wasn’t just her outfit; her makeup looked like she was going to the mall. The Met Gala is the place to be outrageous and do things that test the limits of fashion. Kylie tested the limits of my eyes, because it was so horrendous.
Andrea La Luz, a Lanier High School freshman said, “The whole outfit didn’t match; a baseball cap should never go with a dress. She tried to do something different and it didn’t workout for her.” I couldn’t agree more, and I hope that Kylie steps out better next year, and goes back to the outfits that impress the nation, instead of being on everyone’s worst dressed list.
