This year’s host is one of my favorite public personalities —
Billy is an American stage performer, pop singer, and actor. And all-around gift to humanity in my humble opinion. His lessons on life, self-love, and self-respect resonate with me deeply.
I do not know a ton of celebs by name. I still get Beyonce-level excited to meet certain academics, authors, or chefs.
Fashion (and music) help me to communicate with pop culture.
Someone posted these looks and I decided that a nice re-entry into FM Readio would be to organize them into Herstun Hot, Meh, and WTF.
I hope you enjoy.
Fashion is cool because it’s an acceptable arena to be judgy. So let the judging begin!
These are looks that ain’t hot. They don’t make you say WTF. None of that. They just exist in some realm of trying, but not succeeding. This is almost worse than WTF because any impression is better than no impression!
Met Gala Meh Moments 2019
These are the looks that rub me the wrong way. They may not be ugly to everyone, but they sure ain’t working for me!
MET GALA WTF Moments
These looks are my favorite of the year. The theme was super hard so I tried to balance my favorites against how well the designer worked in theme.
Ladies that I loved
Menswear that slayed
Couples killing it
That is the end of Met Gala 2019, Herstun-style. I love high fashion, couture, avant garde, wearable art. Your body is a canvas.
Dress it appropriately when the time warrants.
Dedicated to Granny. She loved fashion. Shoes, clothes, and hats. So many of her sisters and daughters do too. And me!
I needed a slow and deliberate comeback to the site. Work some kinks and nerves out post-bereavement leave. Just remind myself that I can. I am capable. fashion always making a good topic. I also love costume design and the Met Gala is better than fashion week in my opinion. i hope you enjoy and maybe learn something new too.
Editor-in-Chief. Curator. Dreamer. I want to bring people together, one story at a time. Sometimes, we all just need a little perspective. The arts & humanities can help us regain humanity and change the world. Believe that. Achieve that.
