On Monday, the fashion, music and Hollywood elite, got together and threw themselves a little party. The Met Gala, as this little soiree is known, is referred to as “The Oscars of Fashion” and is the annual fundraising event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. If you’ve ever wanted to get a teensy bit outrageous with your sartorial choices, damnit, this is the night to do it! And this year, three of today’s biggest celebs decided that they were going to basically wear the outfit they were born in– their birthday suit. Skin was ALL THE WAY in at the 2015 Met Gala.
Don’t get me wrong, Jennifer Lopez, Yoncé and, sigh, Kim Kardashian were certainly bringing it and they 1000% got the bodies to be strolling around nearly nude. And anyone who knows me well, knows that an unplanned pop by is not the way to go at my house– you will be waiting outside while I scramble around trying to find some clothes to put on.
On one hand, I love that these women are empowered to express themselves and showcase their femininity and powerful sexuality. But on the other hand, what does putting it all out there really put out there?
Lest you accuse me of being an impossible prude and a borderline never-nude, I do think there is a genius way to bring a little nudity to the red carpet:
Never change, FKA Twigs. Never change. What was your favorite look and what do you think of the nude trend?
