Shanna’s Version of Best Dressed at the Met Gala
I am only throwing down my top three, because I know K will have a whole list, and I hope I am not scoping any out from under her. There were really some hot messes on the red carpet for this event, so it was nice to see these ladies looking so lovely. I realize that fashion is about pushing boundaries, but some of the looks Monday night were just not working for me. These dresses were anything but boring/basic black, but they did not make the ladies wearing them regret their decisions in the morning. That is good fashion.
Solange is always hit or miss, and let’s be honest, she is more likely to be a miss. So when I saw her in this dress, I was happily surprised. This is sweet and ladylike and elegant, all in one. She wasn’t trying to upstage anyone, or show off some ridiculous fashion. She was just being herself, which is probably why she looks so amazing. Photo: Kevin Mazur/WireImage
I saw so many fashion people (bloggers, editors, nobodies, etc.) hate on her for this dress, since she is so tiny, and it is so big. And granted, I was not there in person, so maybe up close it wasn’t working as well, but in this picture??? She looks amazing. I maybe could have done without the massive bow in back, but otherwise, she had it going on. Photo: Larry Busacca/Getty Images
I will admit, it has taken me forever to get on the Carey bandwagon. I am usually not a fan of the pixie girls, and then she had that relationship with Shia La-whatever, who I just cannot stomach, so I really questioned her life choices. But she has grown on me, and this dress just hit it out of the park. It is so fun and fierce, but it is also playful and sweet. Just like her! Photo: Stephen Lovekin/FilmMagic
