When Technology Met Fashion at the 2016 Met Gala, Claire Danes in Zac Posen Made History!

The 2016 Met Gala was a rendezvous for Fashion in an age of Technology in an attempt to challenge the creativity of designers and the daring potentials of the stars. A lot of them failed the test, seduced by too much bling-bling. The Balmain dresses which invaded the red carpet were just too much for the eye: Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Cindy Crawford, Jourdan Dunn, Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosia …

Sarah Jessica Parker looked like she made it out of a Shakespearian play! Nicole Kidman could pass as a galaxy with her stars, moons and meteor showers. Rita Ora was too feathery in her Vera Wang. Lady Gaga was back to her old tricks. Nicki Minaj was chained in her Moschino custom made outfit. Not to mention some extravagant hairstyles: Lupita Nyong’o and Diane Von Furstenberg’s. Or the odd popping red flowers on Elizabeth Cordry’s Gucci dress or even Ellie Bamber’s bed sheet look alike Giles Deacon outfit, topped with Grimes odd frock! Taylor Swift, Alicia Vikander and Selena Gomez in Louis Vuitton were a huge disappointment. Demi Lovato was a failure in her Moschino. The Lemonade lady Beyoncé, despite the adequacy of the peachy color with her complexion, failed to choose well her dress, falling for a latex outfit by Givenchy. As for Saoirse Ronan’s dress, it looked very crowded with the unexplainable feathers. On top of it all, Katy Perry, Madonna and Kris Jenner could officially pass as the evil witches of the evening!

Despite the faux-pas of so many stars, some others made daring fashion statements. Claire Danes in Zac Posen is one of the most extraordinary moments of fashion industry. The magical fairytale dress will never cease to amaze generations! If this is fashion at the age of technology, well count me in!

The Most and Least Fashionable Moments of the 2016 Oscars!

I’ve been waiting impatiently to see some unforgettable fashion moments at the 88th Academy Awards. Let’s say that there were no wow moments. Some did a good job by avoiding many fashion mistakes others, unfortunately, couldn’t help but commit.

  • I’m not a fan of sequined dresses. But Naomi Watts in her navy Armani Privé looks like pure enchantment!

  • Once is accidental, twice is coincidence, three times: it is definitely a fashion transformation! Oh yeah, Lady Gaga stuns in her custom made jumpsuit by Brandon Maxwell

  • Although it may look crowded, Amy Poelher’s gown by Andrew GN couldn’t pass unnoticed! I love the wide sleeves and the embroideries, a perfect combination for a Japanese themed dress!

  • I would have loved Daisy Ridley’s look by Chanel if her skirt was shorter

  • I’ve been waiting for a dazzling look for Alicia Vikander whom surprised me until I saw the bottom of her dress which reminded me of bed sheets!

  • She might have wowed you with the sexiness of her dress, but Rachel McAdams didn’t nail the perfect look. Her look is simple and… I thought we’ve had enough of Angelina Jolie’s look-alike prostatic legs!

  • Saoirse Ronan could use a piece of advice so she could dress her age

  • Heidi Klum is more like a “poupée de chiffons” than a princess in her Marchesa dress

  • I’ve always liked how Kate Winslet celebrated her body and opted for simple yet elegant looks. But her choice yesterday was a huge catastrophe. The Ralph Lauren dress she chose reminded me of garbage bags! Sorry Kate, it was definitely not your night…

  • Ladies, ladies, the plunging neck is sexy but just don’t overdo it! And by that I mean Olivia Wilde in Valentino and Charlize Theron who could have bedazzled us in Dior if it wasn’t so simple (the color suits her perfectly but the look lacks some Oscar deserving glow)
