It’s the first Monday in May, so you know what that means? It’s time for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute gala aka the MET Gala.
This years theme was “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” specifically Gilded Glamour.
But instead of us dishing on who was hot and who was not we turned to Black Twitter for their two cents. Here’s who folks thought were hot and who had ya’ll bothered.
Kerry Washington rocked a sheer black Tory Burch gown that had tongues wagging online.
Kim Kardashian rocked one of the most iconic dresses in history — the sparkly, slinky dress Marilyn Monroe wore when she sang “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy in 1962. So was the internet impressed? Most folks thought she looked gorgeous while others were shocked she lost 16 lbs to fit in the gown.

I can’t believe Kim Kardashian just admitted that she lost 16 pounds in 3 weeks to fit into a dress for the #MetGala. The message is so damaging to young girls watching

Gabrielle Union and hubby Dwyane Wade wore custom Versace looks that earned them a double round of applause. Union’s look was particularly special — the actress paid homage to the late Diahnn Carol.

Lizzo didn’t come to play, she came to slay in this Thome Browne look. She also got major praise for playing her custom flute on the carpet.
