The theme of last night’s Met Gala was “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” so it’s no surprise that metallics ruled. Dresses ranged from over-the-top bizarre (which has come to be expected) to are-you-sure-you-read-your-invitation-because-that’s-just-ummm-a-dress to utterly foolish to you-are-trying-waaaaay-too-hard.
The highlight of the evening was Claire Danes, whose baby blue Zac Posen gown featured fiber optics that made it glow in the dark. The dress was gorgeous. She was gorgeous. She perfectly reflected the theme, and while a glow-in-the-dark dress most definitely qualifies as over the top, it totally worked…in a good way.
Since nothing else dazzled me and lots of things merely confused me, here’s a visual recap of the event. No wearers’ names. No designers. Just photos. You decide.
