Every year when May rolls around the clamor starts, who’s poppin’ and who’s floppin’ at the Met Gala.

Last night, Twitter was abuzz over who’s favs showed up best dressed and this year, some of the least expected showed up dead on arrival.

 

Bops

Billy Porter

How can you top being literally carried into the Met Gala? By being carried into the Met Gala by Egyptian servants dressed as a Pharaoh.

Porter looked like he was about to take flight on the red carpet. The gold wings under his arms were huge.

There are no words that can describe the majestic-ness of this outfit. Besides Lady Gaga this may have been the most elaborate, eccentric outfit on display yesterday.

 

Kacey Musgraves

Kacey Musgraves was posting pictures of Barbie dolls all day on Twitter, but nobody saw this coming. It’s understated but man does she pull it off. She was giving me Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods vibes.

At first I didn’t even realize it was Musgraves, I thought, “Oh, I didn’t know Reese Witherspoon was invited this year,” then I realized it was Musgraves.

Her bag was a hairdryer for goodness sakes! How much more can an outfit scream “BARBIE” ?

 

Zendaya

Zendaya showed up in a pumpkin carriage pulled by white horses and strutted down the red carpet looking like Cinderella. This dress is awe-inspiring; it’s so beautifully put together.

The features of the dress were shocking, from the Cinderella carriage bag she’s holding to the iridescent fabric the dress is made of.

She even lost a glass slipper on the red carpet stairs.

It seems like it was just last year I was watching Zendaya on Disney Channel and now here she is at the Met Gala.

Out of all the Disney stars that could’ve made it to the red carpet, I’m glad Zendaya did.

I am seriously impressed.

Coincidentally, Kylie and Kendall Kardashian were wearing dresses that made them look like the step-sisters. I think was rather appropriate.

 

 

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga went through four outfits in fifteen minutes. Her first dress was absolutely stunning. It had a huge train and took up nearly the entire red carpet, Gaga had two people with her just to help hold up the train.

After they helped her take it off, she flaunted the looks of her second outfit which was cute and gave me major Mary Poppins vibes.

Her third outfit revealed and Gaga took on a character. She was holding a huge cellphones from the 90’s and was acting like she had no clue where she was, talk about dedication to your look.

She stripped that outfit off to reveal a bra, fishnet stockings and panties. Certainly a scandalous look, but it wrapped up her personal fashion show wonderfully.

She was seriously strutting her looks for twenty minutes on the runway; it was a whole performance.

 

 

Flops

James Charles

So nice to see that James Charles volunteered to serve drinks at the Met Gala this year!

Seriously, this looks like he wore it to Coachella and threw it in the wash real quick to freshen it up a little bit before leaving for the Met Gala.

And his make-up look is so plain. It looks like his every day make-up look. Talk about low effort James.

 

Liza Koshy

Who even invited Liza? She attended last year’s Met Gala as well and I still don’t know why.

Her outfit looks like a cardboard box with some faux flamingo feathers hot glued on. It looks straight out of a DIY fashion video from Instagram.

Luckily she spent most of her time interviewing real celebrities, so unless you’re planning on watching any interviews from VOGUE you won’t have to stare at that for too long.

 

Kim Kardashian

As usual, Kim Kardashian manages to stay relevant, even when she showed up looking like a wet pool inflatable to the Met Gala.

There was a real divide from Twitter on this one. Personally I have to stick with my statement above. It really does not look good.

And her waist is unnaturally small. Way to set unrealistic body standards for all the young, impressionable kids out there Kim. Why can’t you be more like Zendaya?

 

Kris Jenner

Keeping up with the Kardashian flops, Kris Jenner. I don’t even know what this is meant to be.

In an interview with E! News she said she was, “channeling her inner David Bowie,” with this look and…. I’m sorry I just don’t see it.

It looks like a bad layer cake got molded around her arms and perched on top of her shoulders.

 

Let us know what you think about our list. Who do you think was best dressed?
