When the theme is so specific (and in the aesthetic of more than a handful of designers), how difficult is it to completely miss the dress code? A co-chair, a handful of Kardashian-Jenners, models and actresses alike took a risk on the red carpet, and unlike some of our risky best dressed, they should have double checked the invitation on the way out of their hotel.
10. KYLIE JENNER AND TRAVIS SCOTT IN ALEXANDER WANG
Out their first outing since becoming parents, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott hit the red carpet in looks that were better suited to a Matrix fan convention than the Heavenly Bodies Met exhibit.
9. AMAL CLOONEY IN RICHARD QUINN
Perfectly pretty, but when you’re co-chairing a costume gala, this is the best you can do? While not every look had to be super on the nose, it was a little disheartening that there wasn’t even an abstract nod to the exhibit in her outfit choice.
8. RUBY ROSE IN TOMMY HILFIGER
Again, pretty gown, but there is a huge disconnect between the dress and the religious-themed cummerbund. It almost feels as that was a last minute add-on.
7. DOUTZEN KROES IN SIES MARJAN
While not irredeemable, the silhouette is one that’s been done to death at the Met Gala, and the draping at the waist adds a heaviness that pulls the gown down – literally.
6. BELLA HADID IN CHROME HEARTS
Points for the interpretation of the theme, but there’s simply too much going on to feel like a cohesive look.
5. KENDALL JENNER IN OFF WHITE
Continuing the family trend of missing the mark at the met, Kendall opted for an Off White look that was both a little bland and eerily familiar to sister Kim’s Vivienne Westwood look from last year (and even THAT wasn’t on theme!)
4. KRIS JENNER IN TOMMY HILLFIGER
For someone with the designer connections she has, Kris Jenner always seems to get the same matronly gown every year.
3. KATY PERRY IN VERSACE
Nice try, but the Met Gala is long established to be Rihanna’s court…it’s best not to try to take on the champ of OOT theme dressing.
2. SHAILENE WOODLEY IN RALPH LAUREN
Best put by cult Instagram account, @everyoutfitonsatc: This is what happens when Ralph Lauren hates you.
