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!

SAG 2016: Few Hot… and so Many Others Not!

I wonder what is happening to the award season! We are witnessing more bad taste, more bad looks and more people who wanted to make a fashion statement that turned out to be a complete failure. Thank God we still have Sofia Vergara to wow us in her hot pink Vera Wang custom made gown and Helen Mirren to dazzle us with her Jenny Packham silver gown!

From the 2016 SAG awards red carpet, see who’s hot and who is definitely not!
