Appropriately Dressed

Last night's Met Gala obviously triggered a wave of best and worst dressed lists all over the world today. And while I may have an opinion or two about the different looks that we saw during that stressful yet hilarious live feed, ("SOMEBODY HELP DEBRA UP THE STAIRS!!!!!") right now I'm only really interested in the outfit that I thought perfectly embodied the entire event. 

I'm talking about Coco Rocha and her much publicized Elizabeth Taylor Givenchy vintage suit. (wine stain included) To me, the Canadian model picked the perfect thing to wear to an event like the Met Gala. It's an event that celebrates the history of fashion and costumes, so why not wear a piece fashion history?

A lot of the dresses I was seeing last night seemed like a total snoozefest to me. In my opinion, the Met Gala is an event you bring your A-game to. You're hanging out in a museum, celebrating the works of pioneers and legends in the fashion industry. In other words, it is not the time to bust out a boring strapless gown. Spruce it up a bit! Have fun with it! If you really love fashion, take a page out of Coco Rocha's book and literally wear a piece of history.

Don't get me wrong, most of the dresses were superb, but I found myself sometimes thinking that I was watching the Academy Awards red carpet, rather than one of the biggest fashion events of the year. I wanted to see more avant-garde looks or outfits that had meaning. That's why, in my opinion, Coco Rocha took the cake, her look was youthful and fun, while being appropriate for the event and a great homage to Elizabeth Taylor.

What were your favourite looks from last night's Met Gala?


  1. coco rocha dressed well for the event, and I agree, why not be more creative in what you wear!?
