-Ok,how would you describe this year’s Met Gala in a sentence ?

The MET Gala looked like a casting call for the next ZOOLANDER movie.

– Many celebrities/their stylists failed to sartorially interpret the Manus X Machina theme. Is this a cultural evolution of the event or just a bad year?

There is a fine line between making an outfit space age and chic or having it come off as a Halloween costume, I think the most talented stylists were behind the looks of Claire Danes and Karolina Kurtkova who looked futuristic yet effortless.

– Name the celebrities you think that where the best dressed.

Nicole Kidman looked the best overall but Lauren Santo Domingo and Jordan Dunn took the theme and looked gorgeous.

– The worst dressed?

Grimes looked like she took her high school sweat pants and made it into a dress.

– What advice would you give to the event organizers? What went wrong?

Absolutely nothing went wrong, now a days it is about entertainment and boy o boy this years gala was extremely entertaining!

-I can’t say i don’t agree!
