Met Gala 2016

The theme for this year's Met Gala was Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, and while some Gala attendees took that to mean they should dress like robots, the Met's signature exhibition explores "how fashion designers are reconciling the handmade and the machine-made in the creation of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear."

Robots, not so much.

By now, you've probably seen the amazing gown Zac Posen made for his friend Claire Danes. Using custom fiber optic woven organza, the dress looked baby blue in the light, but lit up in the dark.

But you're not here to read compliments on pretty things, are you? You want to see the crazy and wackadoodle stuff that went down the runway. Believe me, folks, there was plenty of that!

The Olsen Twins don't give a crap about technology or fashion, so they once again raided their grandmother's closet for something to wear. They are going to be 30 this year, so they need to dress more maturely.

Model Bella Hadid was sadly attacked by a herd of rabid standard poodles on the way to the Gala and couldn't make it. (Givenchy)

Princess Grace's grandaughter, Charlotte Casiraghi in Gucci. It's like she's modeling all the colors of bedruffles available in the Brylane Home catalog.

Dakota Johnson, also in Gucci, is ready to get started on the upcoming Fifty Shades of Lace. Seriously, she looks like the marquee for a Saturday morning cartoon show.

Moschino designer Jeremy Scott seemed very proud of his custom creation for Demi Lovato, posting several pics of it on Instagram. I don't quite understand it. I am reminded of old Versace perfume ads, gilded picture frames, and baked potatoes, all at the same time.

This is Grimes. Grimes is edgy. Grimes gets to wear the ugliest dress in the Louis Vuitton collection that all the other cool young things were wearing to the Met Gala.

Not sure I've ever seen Chanel look sloppy, but somehow it does on Jemima Kirke. It doesn't look like it fits her properly. And her makeup would have worked better had she worn another color. Of course, maybe it's better close up. Or from very far away.

 Katy Perry in Prada. 'nuff said.

Did La La Anthony (basketball player Carmelo's wife) look in the mirror before she left the house? Did she realize that her right boob appeared to be pointing up? My chest hurts just looking at her.

Madonna has never heard the old Coco Chanel adage about removing one piece of jewelry before leaving the house. I've never been impressed by her exhibitionism, and her Givenchy costume makes me wish she felt she had something more to offer the world than her tits and ass.

Michelle Monaghan is wearing Rosie Assoulin. Is this leather? Is that a crepe paper streamer on the top? It looks sweaty.

SJP's costume, by Monse, was apparently inspired by Hamilton, the musical. Huh. Love the shoes. The rest, not so much. Clearly she's had some work done (lips look plumper, she looks vaguely like Kate Hudson). So why does she look so old? She's only 8 months older than I am.

Tavi Gevinson is a blogger. She managed to come up with the 30K to buy a ticket to the Met Gala, but then she couldn't afford to buy anything appropriate to wear. (Coach 1941)
