    WANTED: one honest, decent, middle-class politician who doesn’t want to be a rich celebrity. Just imagine Bronx-born, feminist Democratic Rep. Bella Abzug showing up to a $35,000-a-plate dinner in a dress that cost more than some people in her district made a year? And then staying for the pathetic vegan dinner to hobnob with the unimaginably wealthy celebrities and other “elites”? That’s what Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did at the Met Gala on Monday, sporting an Aurora James gown that declared: TAX THE RICH. “The medium is the message . . . BEFORE anybody starts wilding out,” the congresswoman wrote...

    NEW YORK, NY—Beloved president and celebrity Donald Trump left Met Gala speechless this year when he showed up in a flowing white dress emblazoned with the phrase 'Rigged Election!' "It's a beautiful, bold, brave statement," said fashion writer Vandross Tixatron, who was wearing an $82,000 garbage bag plucked from a landfill in Zimbabwe. "It's even braver when you consider the fact Trump wasn't even invited and he's being chased down by security now. What a statement!" Other stunning attendees to the gala included: Gavin Newsom in a dress made of discarded hobo tents Bill Clinton, who wore a tux embroidered...

    A conservative group is asking the Office of Congressional Ethics to launch an investigation of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for accepting free tickets to Monday’s Met Gala, where she wore a custom gown that said “Tax the Rich.” The self-declared socialist congresswoman drew broad social media scorn for partying at the elite $35,000-per-ticket event while presenting herself as their rabble-rousing foe. Thomas Jones, founder of the American Accountability Foundation, wrote in an ethics complaint that he believes Ocasio-Cortez, who represents parts of the Bronx and Queens, broke House rules by accepting “an impermissible gift” of free tickets to attend the annual...

    Nicki Minaj is unleashing on MSNBC’s Joy Reid for being “so thirsty to down another black woman,” after the TV host lectured the rapper for her COVID-19 vaccine skepticism. Minaj’s expletive-laden rant against Reid was posted to Twitter Monday night after the rap star wrote about her hesitancy to get the shot amid Met Gala requiring proof of vaccination. “They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. If I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now. In the meantime my loves, be safe. Wear the...

    This week, the Met Gala took place in New York City. The event has always been a showpiece for celebrities seeking to make a splash, from Rihanna in her Pope costume to Katy Perry dressed as a chandelier. This year’s event was designed in homage to Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on Camp.” According to Sontag, “camp” is the “love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration.” In reality, camp according to Sontag is something else: a deliberate attempt to tear down boundaries. “Camp taste,” Sontag wrote, “turns its back on the good-bad axis of ordinary aesthetic judgment.” “[H]igh culture,”...

    Jared Leto was accompanied at the Met Gala Monday evening by a replica of his own head. The Oscar-winning actor — dressed in a silk red Gucci gown with jewel detailing — stepped out with the surprising accessory while walking the carpet in New York City. According to Page Six, Leto's look is from the designer's fall 2018 show when creative director Alessandro Michele had models walk the runway holding similar replicas, which per Gucci's Instagram was meant to highlight “the work of a designer — the act of cutting, slicing, reconstructing materials and fabrics to create a new personality...

    Tonight, Billy Porter shut down the Met Gala red carpet when he arrived on a litter—carried by six shirtless men!—in a theatrical nod to Ancient Egypt. The Pose star’s custom “Sun God” ensemble, by The Blonds, included a bejeweled catsuit outfitted with 10-foot wings, a 24-karat gold headpiece, as well as custom gold-leaf Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and fine jewels by Andreoli and Oscar Heyman. The mic-drop served as half fashion moment, half performance art—perfectly executed on an evening when stars were asked to unleash their utmost creativity. Ahead of his red carpet appearance, Porter spoke exclusively with Vogue about how...

    Perry’s talents earned her mansions. Surely the Christian thing to do would be to let the sisters spend their last years on Earth in their own convent Though it came to pass with zero mainstream or social media notice, Sister Rita Callanan’s heartfelt plea to Pope Francis to save the Los Angeles Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary convent from pop star Katy Perry fell on deaf ears. Sister Callanan was last in the news when she told Britain’s Daily Mail that she was appealing directly to Pope Francis to intervene in her 3-year old legal battle with Perry...

    I have some breaking news. Next year's Met Gala is going to have an 'Islam' theme. Yes, guests in 2019 will be encouraged to wear skimpy, provocative dresses that 'celebrate' the Prophet Mohammad, Islamic clothing including hijabs and burqas, and the Koran. I can also reveal that the 2020 Met Gala will have a 'Jewish' theme. Yes, a bunch of celebrities and models will be posing for the world's paparazzi dressed in all manner of Jewish attire and regalia, including dressing up as Rabbis and wearing kippahs. Oh, wait. Neither of these things is actually going to happen. In fact,...
  • Rihanna Reigns With Pope-Inspired Dress at Met Gala

    Many celebrities flirted with the Met Gala theme this year — the influence of Catholicism on fashion — but no one took it on as fearlessly as Rihanna, who dressed like the female pope the Vatican’s never had. She wore a white beaded Margiela corset mini dress under a full skirt, with a beaded bishop’s hat to match. The outfit was accessorized with a pearl anklet and a bejeweled crucifix necklace. Rihanna’s hat was reminiscent of the papal tiaras worn by popes from the medieval era until the mid-1960s. The last papal tiara — a bejeweled, three-­tiered gold and silver...

    With its outlandish themes and A-list guests, the Met Gala has become the signature event of the year to get brave on the red carpet. But what would bravery be without the risk of failing? Sadly, for a large number of guests attending this year's red carpet event held at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday, it doesn't look like their particular risks were worth taking. With the theme this year being Rei Kawakubo/Comme de Garçon: Art of the In-Between, many stars opted for pieced that spliced together strange and surprising elements - with some cringe-worthy results.

    Complete Headline: A floral flop! Caroline Kennedy models a VERY unflattering dress on the Met Gala red carpet - just hours after being hailed by Vogue as one of the 'best dressed of all time' Caroline Kennedy is known for her classic sense of style and fashionable know-how, so it came as quite a shock to see the diplomat take to the red carpet at this year's Met Gala in a highly unflattering - and rather bizarre - dress that quite closely resembled an antique lampshade. The 59-year-old, a close friend of Met Gala chair Anna Wintour, arrived at the...

    Megyn Kelly radiated confidence as she walked the Met Gala red carpet in a Badgley Mischka gown Monday night. The Fox News anchor arrived hand in hand with her husband of eight years, novelist Douglas Brunt, to the event attended by the likes of Taylor Swift, Kendall Jenner and Rita Ora at New York's Metropolitan Museum Of Art. Her dress looked perennially elegant at the front and seemed like a simple black gown with a conservative neckline and a mermaid bottom.
