Kristen Stewart in Chanel at the Met Gala: 90s goth camp realness?


Kristen Stewart has long been a brand ambassador for Chanel and they dress her for so many events. She was one of the few women wearing pants on the red carpet last night. I would call this look 90s camp goth and because I’m a 90s girl I really like it. Kaiser does too. This is a fancy sequin version of those too-long too-loose skater and she paired them with platform sneakers, platform mary janes (I think they’re mary janes they could just be sneakers), a ton of chains and jewelry and pink-tipped hair. This is fun and it’s campy. It’s just camp from a more recent era than some of the other looks.

Lily Rose Depp also represents Chanel. She was in a formfitting black gown with chain embellishments. She carried a metallic purse but this is crying out for tackier medallion jewelry or a giant ugly purse. Ooh could you imagine if someone did a homage to Cher from Clueless? This is lacking.

Tessa Thompson was in an oversize quilted Chanel dress with latex sleeves and latex wrapped around to make a faux ponytail she carried as a whip. She had on dominatrix boots and carried another S&M instrument which I guess is a riding crop. I did google it but I don’t want to spend too long looking at that stuff even in incognito mode or Comcast will put me on a list.

I guess Chanel and Penelope Cruz’s stylist were going for 50s camp but that’s so often her look that it falls flat. I like the oversized tiers in this skirt though.
