On E!’s coverage last night they kept talking about how all the hair was on point. The top knots, spikes and shapes were reminiscent of Kawakubo’s designs, which is something I honestly wouldn’t have realized on my own. So Kate Hudson’s shock white hair is in homage to the theme. Her white Stella McCartney gown, not so much. There’s the single large draped sleeve, but otherwise this is a typical fitted column gown. It’s pretty but not memorable. This is Stella McCartney though, so points to her for actually tailoring the dress to Kate. It could have been so much messier, which is probably why she didn’t get too creative. I do like Kate’s styling although it kind of emphasizes that she’s had some injectables. The hair and makeup last night was very good overall actually.
Naomi Watts was also in Stella McCartney, and you could tell from her expression on the red carpet that she knew her dress was utterly boring. It’s just a black v-neck dress with some metallic netting underneath. This would be cute for a premiere or minor event, but not the Met Gala. Her makeup is cool though, I her bold smokey eye and light pink lip.
I’m throwing Elle Fanning at the end here because we have a lot of people to get through this morning and her look wasn’t that daring either. Elle was in this lovely but somewhat staid Miu Miu gown with a long diaphanous train and a tight fitting bodice. She looks so pretty but again this dress isn’t anything new. I like the color, I want to call it cornflower blue but it’s lilac maybe. The train is impressive I will admit.
