Before I left the office tonight, my friend and coworker, Courtney, remarked that tonight’s Met Gala was the equivalent of a Super Bowl to anyone else. She wasn’t wrong! I put in the extra hours of work this weekend so that I could free up my Monday evening to work on crafting this post. Before I came home, I also went out for a glass of wine with a friend so that I could a) appreciate every look for the piece of art that is and b) to let my true opinions for every outfit shine through! Throughout the day in all my meetings, I was closely watching the coverage seeing bits and pieces here and there, but never spoiling it all for myself until I was able to digest it when I got home. I can’t imagine a better photograph to kick start this post.
This year’s 2018 exhibition was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.”

Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton
This is always one of our favorite events of the year and all today, I wanted to just continue refreshing Fashionista so that I could see the live coverage of all of the outfits. Instead, we worked. And every 45 minutes, we ended up refreshing, but then the days get ahead of us so now we’re playing catch up now. Here’s what we did see – we didn’t like Taylor’s outfit. Not one bit. We hated Selena’s boots. We weren’t surprised by Nicki Minaj and we loved Chloe Moretz and Bee Shaffer, but what else is new?! Now, let’s get to the coverage – it’s pretty much the post we’ve been waiting for all year long. This year’s theme was Manus x Machina. This also kind of hits home for us because well… you know, tech!

Grimes, Bleachers – Entropy
You probably heard this at the end of the lastest Girls episode last night.

If you’ve ever found yourself at a Grimes show, then you understand that you’re in for one heck of a show. I caught Grimes I think two years ago at Capitol Hill Block Party having only known a handful of her songs back then, but found myself getting more and more into the show as the set went on. Grimes is what I can only describe as eccentric, colorful, and whimsical. Are we still using the term Manic Pixie Dream Girl? I know we use those for movies, but if we had it for the music category, she would probably take the cake.
This week it was announced that Grimes had signed to Jay Z’s label Roc Nation. Already on the roster are: Rihanna, Timbaland, Haim, MIA, Santigold, Shakira, Wale, Kylie Minogue and more. She’s in great company!
I’m excited for what is to come for the young artist in the new year.
