Where Is the Theme?
Didn't get the memo? Most years, Met Gala attendees often ignore the event's theme, instead treating the bash like a generic fashion prom. This year was no exception – but felt much more striking, given how avant garde and peerless Rei Kawakubo's designs for Comme Des Garçons have long been. While the bash invited stars to take risks, explore unconventional silhouettes and get weird, too many just played it safe, wearing garments and designs seen throughout award season. Some of the biggest offenders and least inventive looks came from the likes of Selena Gomez, Allison Williams and Jennifer Connelly.
