Lupita Nyong'o Did Effie Trinket On Acid, Janelle Monae Had A Blinking Boob, And Zendaya Was Cinderella At The Met Gala
Some Met Gala outfits relied on pure glamour while others relied on equal parts ‘The Fuck?’ and ‘OMG!’ Three attendees this year, Janelle Monae, Lupita Nyong’o and Zendaya put their spin on the theme “camp” brought more drama than twenty-four hours of watching Bravo without a bathroom break.
I’m not sure if the three of them entered into a group chat and decided that they would come dressed as LSD-themed characters from their favorite fairy tales or if this was just a happy coincidence, but they came through and left very little to the imagination, and in some cases that’s very literal. Take Janelle Monae for instance. Her Met Gala outfit (made by Christian Siriano) must have been a nod to her one titty ancestors Janet Jackson and Lil’ Kim because Janelle had no problems letting one out to wink at the paparazzi.
This is what happens when you take the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland, add two cups of sexy and cut it with absinthe to make the type of What The Hell??? magic one needs to stand out at the Met Gala. And the irony was Janelle probably had her breast exposed to make pervs feel creepy for looking since it was pretty much looking right back at them. Variety reports that Janelle’s stylist, Alexandra Mandelkorn, turned to the world of art for her look.
Mandelkorn is the mastermind stylist behind Monae’s red carpet reign and is responsible for her style from PYNK-era to present. When it comes to Monae’s look for the first Monday of May event, Mandelkorn turned to Picasso and Dali for inspiration and incorporated surrealism with the artificial and over-the-top.
While Janelle went for a very literal interpretation of “I see you looking!” Lupita opted to come through as the wokest Versace butterfly ever complete with a high reaching Afro and golden pics in her hair. And her rainbow butterfly wings means she was either soaring above the clouds high off the good shit or she wanted to show everyone what a walking pack of Starburst looks like.
Finally Zendaya went a basic, boring Party City Cinderella. Yawns for days! how completely unoriginal, right? Not so fast! Zendaya, who arrived with her stylist Law Roach, was only boring for about three seconds until her Fairy Godbrutha waved his magic wand and Bibbity, Bobbity BOO-YAHED all over her outfit until it lit up like a Christmas tree Claire Danes-style.
Wigs and Toupees were snatched! But that wasn’t all. People reports that Zendaya went full theater kid by leaving a slipper on the stairs and then changing inside:
She also went so far as to leave a “glass slipper” behind on the iconic Met Gala stairs – and once inside, she changed into a pink dress, echoing the one Cinderella’s mice made for the ball that her stepsisters destroyed – and into which Cinderella changes back into once the magic wears off. Roach told Vogue the outfit was meant to evoke her career evolution from Disney star to in-demand actress: “It’s almost like this is the last hoorah and the last time people will identify her as a Disney princess—which isn’t a bad thing.”
Zendaya put in a lot of effort, but something she missed was standing in front of Kendall and Kylie Jenner, who looked like Wicked Stepsisters by way of a low-budget Las Vegas floor show.
Here’s a few more looks from last night:
