*sings extremely loudly even though it’s goddamn early in the morning* IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEEEEAR! Yes guys that’s right it’s time for Met Gala 2019 festivities, the biggest fashion moment if all you care about is celebrities wearing things you definitely can’t shuffle down to the corner shop in.

Every year the celebs roll up to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC wearing the uncomfortable clothing items of my worst nightmares. Nightmares in which I am forced to endure hours of needle-like things stabbing me in the abdomen or wearing head-to-toe scratchy wool. That kind. But we love it, and jokes aside a LOT of work goes into these outfits and while there’s some absolute borza shit paraded down the red carpet, there’s also some feats of sartorial genius that are worthy of a museum. Which is good bc some of this stuff will actually end up in a museum.

There are glaring omissions from Beyoncé (why) and Rihanna (WHY), but don’t worry there’s plenty for us to make sweeping statements about. Also, many birds probably plucked to an inch of their lives. I’m calling the Bird Police.

Anyway BLAH BLAH BLAH who cares about what I’m blabbering on about (I don’t even know, it is VERY early in the morning and my boyfriend made me a really small coffee which he promised would be a really big one, I will never forgive him for this) – here’s all the celebs as they arrive, plus my questionable commentary!

EMILY RATAJKOWSKI

A real mood would be seeing Emily later on, sitting in a Maccas eating a Big Mac meal with large fries and a 6 pack of nuggets in this. Or if she was me, drunkenly sitting in the gutter a spewing while her Uber driver yells at her not to get any on her dress because if it goes in his car, it’s gonna cost $200 in cleaning fees.

RUPAUL

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

The man is Lord Of Camp, so he can do whatever the fuck he wants really. Including hot pink stripy sequinned flares.

JOE JONAS & SOPHIE TURNER

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

This is majestic, what a way to walk a pink carpet as husband and wife for the first time, no? Also bring back mens turtlenecks they do things to me.

KERRY WASHINGTON

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

Okay I get that the singlet is meant to be some sort of high/low fashion thing but no, you can afford a proper formal top, this is not acceptable.

IDRIS ELBA & SABRINA DHOWRE

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

Idris is the hottest man alive I don’t give a shit what he wears, just be present always hotty hotterson. I’m into the rose gold hue from head to foot with Sabrina, but I do think this dress could have been more dramatic.

HALSEY

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

I’m feeling Wonder Woman vibes, no?

KACEY MUSGRAVES

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

Kacey LITERALLY went as Barbie, right down to the creepy dead-in-the-eyes look.

BELLA HADID & JEREMY SCOTT

Theo Wargo/WireImage

These people will push in front of you in the club line and then punch the bouncer out when he won’t let them in.

MICHAEL URIE

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

Best on ground, in my opinion.

WINNIE HARLOW

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

I am GENUINELY concerned for how many birds have perished to make all these feather throws and so on, like can we not? Winnie didn’t even need it for this outfit, it’s so excellent standalone. But also, Celine is coming for you for stealing her headpiece idea, beb.

LILY ROSE DEPP

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

This woman is so drop dead gorgeous it should be a crime. This dress is very 90s Versace, it’s heaven.

CARDI B

Charles Sykes/Invision/AP

Good LORD, what a Rihanna moment. I wouldn’t expect anything less from Cardi B. Bonus – she can have a little nap in her train later on, when the partying becomes too much.

J.LO AND ALEX RODRIGUEZ

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

If you take off the spangly headdress then JLO’s just worn something she owned from her 2006 pop star days, really.

EZRA MILLER

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

WHAT IS HAPPENING MY EYES HURT.

ELLA BALINSKA

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

Yes, obsessed, the perfect level of OTT.

CARA DELEVINGNE

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

Even more obsessed/want to eat her cane bc it’s probably made of Jolly Ranchers.

KENDALL & KYLIE JENNER

Theo Wargo/WireImage

I was actually expecting worse than this to be honest, so I was pleasantly surprised the Jenner girls didn’t fuck this up royally. Although I am quite concerned for the bird population of Calabasas considering how many feathers are present here.

NICKI MINAJ

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

It’s fine but I expected more from Nicki.

CAMILA MENDES

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

Is it really pretty or is it just an old Big Bird costume repurposed.

NINA DOBREV

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

She’s really going to regret letting her hairstylist clamp-iron her hair into cardboard tomorrow.

SOLANGE

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

No. Do better.

DONATELLA VERSACE

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

God she’s a mood. Never change.

DAKOTA JOHNSON

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

Did some people just get their duds from last year’s Heavenly Bodies theme and repurpose them for this? Stop it.

TESSA THOMPSON

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic
Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

The woman is using her hair. As a whip. HER HAIR IS A WHIP. THIS IS ICONIC. It’s also very useful for sex games and/or actually whipping D-grade celebrities out of the way.

KATE MOSS

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

Look normally I wouldn’t let a cape go without bitching about it but there’s something about Kate Moss that just ALLOWS for things, you know? She’s so eternally chic and cool that you start letting critiques slip.

ZENDAYA

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

Ugh no stop. This isn’t the time to play Cinderella, OK? SAVE THIS FOR YOUR HOME, ZENDAYA.

LUPITA NYONG’O

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

Moooooood. Phenomenal.

JARED LETO

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

Absolutely yes. Yes yes yes also, I’m scared.

MILEY CYRUS & LIAM HEMSWORTH

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

Miley has made the fatal faux-pas of a dress you cannot sit in, teamed with shoes you can barely walk in. What will she do? Be carried in like a mannequin and have Liam massage her sore feet every hour on the hour?

HARI NEF

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

I thought about it, and then decided that yes this is great.

ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

BLEGH.

HAILEY BIEBER

Theo Wargo/WireImage

I actually adore this. It’s the perfect mix of chic and weird, you know? IDK if I’d say it fits to theme but hey, there’s always 50% of celebs who don’t even fucking bother (paging Kim and Kanye) so at least something is happening here.

GAL GADOT

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

BORING AND ITCHY.

PRIYANKA CHOPRA & NICK JONAS

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

Priyanka is unrecognisable here! Props to that makeup because for a minute I thought she’d done one of those horrific painted-eyelid situations, which should be banned along with costumes where the persons head is hidden. NOPE. DON’T ENJOY. Also is anyone else turned on a bit by Nick’s dirty mo? Just me?

HAILEE STEINFELD

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

Like, it’s cute but it’s just directly off the Viktor & Rolf runway. So IDK.

MICHAEL URIE

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

HELL YES this is insane/perfect.

KANYE WEST & KIM KARDASHIAN

Theo Wargo/WireImage

Jesus Christ these guys just phoned it in on this one, didn’t they? Kanye literally looks like my dad when it’s casual Fridays at his office.

CHARLI XCX

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

Love. If you don’t want to get insane with the costumes, this is how to do it – stay on theme in some way, people! Don’t just wear tuxedos!

AQUARIA

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

JORDAN ROTH

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

When in doubt, wear a large piece of fabric attached to scary poles and start spinning around, knocking other celebrities to the ground so you remain the star.

YARA SHAHIDI

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

I could get mad about yet another dead flamingo being worn fresh from the murder farm, but I also really like Yara’s bespangled tights.

TIFFANY HADDISH

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

HELL YEAH TIFFANY WITH THE ZEBRA GLITTER FLARES.

ASHTON SANDERS

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

As a fan of ye olde period dramas, I approve of this sexy male courtesan vibe. Although the material looks like it was from the bargain bin at Spotlight.

FRANK OCEAN

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

He’s literally in a tracksuit. But also, it’s Frank Ocean. Remember when he maybe hooked up with Riccardo Tisci one year? And Tisci posted a “don’t leave” Instagram or something? Damn, what a good time that was.

RYAN MURPHY

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

Christ he has to be uncomfortable as FUCK with all that stabby sequin going on. Have you ever worn sequinned pants? They are NOT a good time, my friend. But who cares when you look this epic, I suppose. Just buy bulk Dermaid and a Phenergan and deal with the aftermath.

CONSTANCE WU

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

I’m not entirely convinced the 1920s flapper is camp, but I do enjoy her sparkly hair extension.

MADELAINE PETSCH

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

No. This is not the time to dress up as a fairy, even if you missed out on fairy parties as a kid. Do not.

FLORENCE WELCH

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

Florence is my forever style icon and a permanent angel, she can do no wrong.

DARREN CRISS

Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images

YESSSS DARREN FUCK YES. I want to bone him immediately and also encase him in a glass shrine inside a museum.

NATASHA LYONNE

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

I love the top half, and then the bottom half just looks like her stylist fused her legs together in some sort of revenge power move.

ABBEY LEE KERSHAW

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

I know I shut down Madelaine for dressing like a toddler at a kids party, and Abbey is kiiiind of doing the same thing. But I love this. Sorry! I get to wildly make sweeping statements and then go back on them whenever I want!

SAOIRSE RONAN

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

I feel like this would have worked better for the Heavenly Bodies theme last year. But also, it’s pretty damn fab.

KRIS JENNER & COREY GAMBLE

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

I actually wish Kris didn’t wear the wig because I’m obsessed with her chic crop. The jacket is cool, the brooch is not, and Corey is, as always, an attractive mannequin Kris brought to life, Frankenstein style.

TAYLOR HILL

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

BORING. BLAH. MEH. I’M BORED. Also fuck how many flamingos have died today? Tomorrows news: flamingos are extinct, sorry.

JEMIMA KIRKE & LENA DUNHAM

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

Looner and Rubberist are names for sexual fetishes, I have learnt from my 0.005 second Google search. I do wish they were just entirely encased in rubber but also that would bring on about 40 different yeast infections, so.

MARY-KATE & ASHLEY OLSEN

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

Just because you wore full length leather jackets that look really cool, doesn’t mean you worked to theme and get a pass ladies.

AMBER VALETTA

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

MORE DEAD FLAMINGOS.

BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH & SOPHIE HUNTER

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

Now this is heaven. This is just… it’s so good. Mom and Dad, big time.

CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG & RAMI MALEK

Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images

my other Mom and Dad if I was a more artistic and creative bohemian child who lived in an Earth House in the middle of a forest.

LUCY BOYNTON

Theo Wargo/WireImage

This is so fun, I love it.

EMILY BLUNT

Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images

This looks so itchy, I hate it.

ANNA WINTOUR

Karwai Tang/WireImage

This looks like she murdered an endangered flamingo and wore it, blood still dripping, onto the pink carpet. Which to be honest is exactly what I would expect from the scariest fashion magazine editor of all time.

SERENA WILLIAMS

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

How good does Serena look! How gorgeous is this frock with the beautiful leaf details and… OH MY GOD WHAT ARE THOOOOSE

Theo Wargo/WireImage

This is worse than if she wore Heelies.

LADY GAGA

Mike Coppola/MG19/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

OBVIOUSLY Lady Gaga wore not one, but four outfits. That were one outfit. Whatever, here’s the first, a Barbie-pink sack. There’s not much to say besides it’s a sack and it’s pink.

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

Then KABLAMO! She whips it off and she’s in…. a black sack.

Karwai Tang/WireImage

KASPLAMMY! There’s a pink, fitted sack under there!

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

KAWHAMMY! She whips that final sack off and she’s….. in her knickers. As per usual. They’re very nice knickers? I guess? IDK I was expecting the most insane shit from Gaga, this is HER NIGHT (she’s a host) and she’s all about that camp-life. I will say this – that BYO bottle shop she’s wheeled in is something. Did she hide it under the sacks? Goddamn that would be beautiful if so.

HARRY STYLES & ALESSANDRO MICHELE

Theo Wargo/WireImage

Goddamn, this is so gorgeous I’m crying. Alessandro’s pants!! I need ’em! Harry’s blouse and single earring!! These two were perfect choices for hosts this year, they’re heaven, this is all heaven, I have nothing else to say.

BEE CARROZZINI

Karwai Tang/WireImage

So that red bolt of material is actually attached to the side of her blazer, I’m fairly sure, but it hundo-p looks like Bee was all “this blazer is stunning on me. But it is not on theme. I’d better just grab a random cut of satin and carry it down the carpet with me.”

LAVERNE COX

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

Ooft, Laverne! If she didn’t have the fantastic blue mermaid hair I’d be off this, because I think she’d look like a face attached to some tulle. But her stylist was clearly ON IT, everything works here.

CELINE DION

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

I HAVE NO WORDS. Celine you magnificent goddess. Never stop.

ASHLEY GRAHAM

Theo Wargo/WireImage

Look I know when you look closely like this, there are some cool details here – the stockings that pay homage to Dapper Dan, a haberdasher from Harlem but the reality is, Ashley just looks like she forgot to put pants on and also thought she was headed to the polo today.

HAMISH BOWLES

Dia Dipasupil/FilmMagic

I had to go Google “WHO IS HE!?!?!?!” but this is Hamish Bowles, European Editor-At-Large for US Vogue. Of course he is. That is the exact job I would expect for someone who has access to a coat this glorious.

BILLY PORTER

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

I mean when you’re a performer and someone invites you to an event with the theme ‘Notes On Camp’, you wear giant gold angel wings and the most uncomfortable-looking, yet fabulous, bodysuit in existence. It’s a no-brainer.

KARLIE KLOSS

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

BORING.

SARA SAMPAIO

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

MORE BORING WITH SIDE OF BEIGE BLACK SWAN HOMAGE.

21 SAVAGE

Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images

SO BORING HE COULD JUST BE HEADED TO MACCAS.

RICHARD MADDEN

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue

I’m tired from the boring. I need a reviving image of Celine Dion to pep me up again.

Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images

Ahhhhh. That’s better.

MINDY KALING

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

I’m so torn here because she looks amazing and all-over gold sequins, always a mood. But I wish this had some dramatic bustle or a giant headpiece to really take it to new heights, you know?

AWKAFINA

Theo Wargo/WireImage

YES. Like if Mindy Kaling had some ruffle action like Awkafina does, I’d be happy. This is fab.

JANELLE MONAE

Doug Peters / EMPICS

THE EYE BLINKS. That’s all you need to know.
