I could not get over how bad most of the fashion was at tonight’s Met Gala, to celebrate the opening of the new exhibit Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. It seemed like most ladies thought they needed to wear silver because the word “technology” had been included in the exhibition title and most of the gowns were either ugly or ridiculous. Some of them were both! My favorite comment of the night on Twitter came from @ImJdolla who wrote, so poetically, “Everybody looks clown #MetGala2016.” I could not stop laughing at his tweet. He was so right!
However, this is not a roundup, I only cover what Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue, wears to this annual event and, of course, as is her tradition, she is in Chanel.

I do like this off-white column gown on her, particularly the detail at the neckline, as well as the fringe. Once again the wonderful seamstresses at Chanel have shown just how talented they are! I am not sure about the jewelry selections on Anna, however. Why platinum and diamonds when you have so much golden color close to the neckline and so much visual interest to begin with? Why wear a necklace at all? I know there are silver beads throughout the gown but still, the jewelry didn’t make much sense to me. There were so many terrible gowns, however, that even if her jewelry was off, Anna was one of the best dressed of the night.

I did think Anna’s daughter, Bee Shaffer, looked divine in her black and floral gown by Alexander McQueen. It is one of the only other gowns of the entire night that I thought was pretty!

Let me know what you thought of the dresses on Anna and Bee. If you happened to catch any of the photos of what the other attendees were wearing, feel free to get catty, it was one of the worst red carpets I have ever seen, atrocious from start to finish! What happened?
