Good day to you darlings. It’s a public holiday in places but here at BOHOMOTH we are revving up for the Met Gala re carpet tonight. How exciting, designers looking for attention by dressing an attention seeking celebrity in attention seeking ‘fashions’! Bring it on.
Nepotism and privilege ahoy!
Hosted by Carrie Mulligan, Miuccia Prada and Anna Wintour. Designers pick a celebrity to dress. Celebrities smile for cameras. Images hit internet. Bohomoth washes images in bile. Modus Operandi.
These are some of the fash-istocricy pairings:
Lana Del Rey (and her five faces) & Altuzarra
SuperGOOP & Prada
The super fabulous Azealia Banks & Alexander Wang (she’s performing at the event too, hurray for that)
Proenza Schouler & Isabel Lucas
There’ll also be celebrities flying solo, not on the arm of a designer, but seeking attention in a free attention seeking dresses all the same.
UPDATED: Red Carpet Fashion Awards has an up-to-date list.
