Best & Worst From the 2017 Met Gala

Now anyone who knows me knows I love all things pop culture, especially high fashion. I normally don't do fashion posts (even though I absolutely should more often) but last night, the 2017 Met Gala looks were SO out there. Some of them were REAL good others, not so much (I'm talking about you, Katy Perry) I'm playing fashion police today and serving you the best and worst looks from last night.

WORST

Rihanna   in Comme des Garçons . Nobody can understand this look including me who will literally love a potato sack if she throws it on. I'm not sure if it's the Geisha vibe, the pink highlighter, the multicolored petals or the electrical wire heels that are making me cringe? I think it's all of it.

Katy Perry   in John Galliano.  I am not a label snob who will praise anything just because it's designer. This is straight up confusing as it is ugly. There is nothing flattering about this over embellished tulle, column, mesh gown. The headpiece could have been tossed too. Try again girl.

Chrissy Teigen  in Marchesa .  Marchesa is a fashion house that almost never gets it wrong. The sad thing is, they usually only dress one or two major celebrities at events like the Met so they didn't even have a chance to recover from this. This has to be the tackiest gown she's ever worn publicly. I'm getting all the Cruella Deville vibes and not in a good way.

Janelle Monae   in Ralph and Russo.  Speechless .  Please see the last commentary for Chrissy Teigan and feel free to apply it to the photo above.

Celine Dion   in Atelier Versace.  Celine Dion may not be a fashion icon even though she is a  well known  star. This is why though! Her fashion choices tend to be all over the place. Here's a perfect example of what I mean. She's sort of giving us Angelina Jolie leg slit dress and Kentucky Derby socialite with the hoof louboutins and bedazzled undershirt.

Madonna  in Moschino  . Madonna is the queen of tacky AF. Point proven with this military-inspired, basic training net adored messsssss honey. She could have lived without every single accessory she threw on with this too. At least she left the kitchen sink at home.

Solange Knowles   in Thom Browne.  I know New York may be colder than most places in the country but you can never use that as an excuse to have a down jacket train with matching ice skates. She has one of the world's most beautiful bodies under there and we would never know it.

Nicki Minaj   in Custom H&M.  Sit down and be humble Nicki. Trash must be Nicki's new muse because that's exactly where she got this outfit from. Put this back in the bin with your music and her ex's Meek Mill's career.

Cassie   in On Aura Tout Vu . The upper half of this dress could have been flattering but the more you look around the more you hate this dress. The spikes on the bottom remind me of car wash spindles and the pointy accessories are giving me porcupine vibes.

Cynthia Erivo in Thom Browne. All that comes to mind is The Hunger Games whistle and Elizabeth Mann's character Effie. Not sure what she was going for here. Perhaps Marie Antoinette?

BEST

Lupita Nyong'o   in Prada.  The color is amazing. The silhouette is feminine and looks comfortable and soft despite it being a couture gown proving you don't have to be uncomfortable to deliver fashion. I'm not feeling the hair but who cares when everything else is so pretty!

Emma Roberts   in Diane Von Furstenberg.  Hello TV-star! She looks amazing in this deep coral colored gown. We could have lived without the stole but she is serving fierceness in this perfectly altered dress with a fringe train.

Laura Osnes   in Christian Siriano.  Not even sure who this lady is but she is giving me throwback Rihanna in that gorgeous Giambattista Valli dress in the same poppy colored hue a few years ago. I love the fact that the designer broke up the volume of the dress with the two pieces. She shined in this floral confection.

KKW   in Vivienne Westwood Couture Collection . Simple. Elegant. Sexy. So chic. Can't hate on her here.

Katie Holmes   in Zac Posen . ZP is a close friend of Holmes and he's dressed her on numerous occasions. I'm in love with the hue here even though it screams fall it still works. The form is super on point and it's all working for me.

Blake Lively "Reynolds"   in Atelier Versace.  She absolutely KILLED IT in this look and solidified her MILF status if we forgot the fact she's a momma of 2. The fact that her feathers match the carpet to a T was definitely planned. She's never used a stylist which makes me love her even more. She always takes fashion risks and like this one, it paid off big time!

Elle Fanning   in Miu Miu . Typically the Fanning sisters are sport minimal or "maximal" looks. I think she nailed this etherial soft powder blue moment that she had here. She looks youthful and age appropriate for once and elegant without trying too hard.
