What the hell were they thinking? There were some definite fashion FAILS at the MOCA 35th Anniversary gala Presented By Louis Vuitton at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA in Los Angeles. Let’s check out the good, the bad, and the wtf.
Dita Von Teese in a lavender bla blah blah. Gorgeous, sure, but don’t you just want to mess up her hair and see her in a onsie from Target once in a while? I get tired of the same old glam trip she does EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. Yes, there’s something to say for consistency, for committing to a look, but it starts to feel a bit OCD after a while, like there’s a darker pathology driving her towards that relentless perfection. “Will Mommy be happy with me TONIGHT? Will Mommy like how perfect the seams in my stockings are?”
We do have to pay special attention to the minaudier with its festive knucklet. Yowza.
Ubiquitous red carpet habitué Anne Jeffries in a bedazzled velour pantsuit. You do you, Anne.
The Pursy McPurselipps – Chloe Sevigny and her dashing art director BF Rene Navarrette. They look… tense.
WTF sort of Romper Room bullshit is this? Helen Lasichanh and Pharrell Williams toddle onto the red carpet in infantalized fashions, looking like undercover cops at the rave. Guys, Ultra is in MIAMI. You look RIDICULOUS.
On the other hand, you don’t want to dress so safely you put us to sleep. I had to check three times that this was ACTUALLY Katy Perry and not one of the Real Housewives of Riverside.
Jane’s so funny. There’s no getting around the fact that she looks marvelous, she’s got the best plastic surgery that money can buy, and that she seems to be enjoying her old age. And sometimes she’s so au current it makes your teeth hurt, Then, other times, you see that she’s vaguely stuck in the ’80s with that power helmet she’s sporting. Tonight she looks very Pamela Harriman.
