When two sources “confirmed” that Kerry Washington had another baby growing in her belly yesterday, I made a joke that Kerry would confirm it herself by posing on the red carpet of the Met Gala with her hand placed on her stomach. And last night Kerry Washington hit the Met Gala red carpet with her hand on her stomach. Although I almost didn’t notice that hand because I was too distracted by that purple hair. Mon Dieu (splashes self with holy water), that hair! I am so conflicted. It’s not permanent (Instagram tells me that those are extensions), so that’s good. It sort of looks like the kind of fake hair you’d find on the floor of the Rock of Love Bus, which makes me want to pour myself a hot mug of penicillin. On the other hand, it looks like it was found on the floor of the Rock of Love Bus, which means it’s 100% pure fake hair perfection.
I’ve known some pregnant people, and one thing I’ve gleaned is that sometimes being knocked up makes you do some crazy things. Case in point: the gorgeous black lace boudoir ensemble Kerry is wearing. I feel like non-knocked up Kerry wouldn’t wear that. But knocked up Kerry? Sure! The more black lace the better. Or maybe this is Kerry’s way of paying tribute to Prince. If Prince designed maternity clothes, I’m almost positive that’s what he’d make.
Kerry didn’t exactly do much with the technology theme, but there were a few people who tried. Let’s start with Demi Lovato.
Demi Lovato looks like a futuristic picture frame from the gaudy mansion of a cast member of the 89th season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. I’m thinking either an android gold digger named TAWN-E or Teresa Giudice’s great great granddaughter. Demi is wearing a custom Moschino, and I don’t know if Jeremy Scott’s inspiration for this dress was a fashion-forward robot testing out the “You Break It, You Take It” policy on a 90s Versace spandex number at a vintage store, but I’d say he nailed it.
But I’d say the person who truly represented the technology theme the best was Kylie Jenner.
Nothing says “science” like a white teenager who has successfully turned herself into a 35-year-old half-Armenian woman.
Here’s more of the glamour and glitter, fashion and fame from last night. You know you’re at a high fashion event when you can describe Willow and Jaden Smith’s looks as “understated.”
