Lifestyle - News
Sarah Jessica Parker
"China: Through the Looking Glass" was the theme of the 2015 Met Gala, although Sarah Jessica Parker's Philip Treacy headdress garnered a lot of criticism. The "outfit was outlandish and ignorant," according to one article, and they “saw blatant racism: the spot-on Asian Dragon Lady stereotype" according to another.
Rihanna is known for nailing each year's Met Gala theme, but some fans didn't like her outfit for the 2018 Met Gala's "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination". One twitter user said, "Rihanna I love you but showing up with a pope head piece is so offensive to me," and another declaring that "Rihanna being culturally insensitive."
Karlie Kloss
At the 2019 Met Gala theme, "Camp: Notes on Fashion," many fans were highly disappointed by Karlie Kloss's outfit. Comments ranged from unflattering comparisons, such as one Twitter user stating that she looked like a Twix candy bar, to others declaring that Kloss's outfit was just "beyond boring."
Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian's outfit at the 2019 Met Gala's theme, "Camp: Notes on Fashion," made a lasting impression thanks to one partially eye-catching feature: her dramatically tight waist. According to one source, Kardashian's look drew criticism from individuals who believed the very artificial silhouette encouraged unattainable beauty standards.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a bold statement at her first Met Gala, wearing a gown emblazoned with the words "Tax the Rich." Some people reacted strongly to her message, claiming that the wording on her gown, paired with her attendance at the extravagant event, made her a hypocrite.
