People Stared At J.Lo’s Butt, Cardi B Was A Walking Period, And More Things You’ll Only See At The Met Gala

If you missed the highly exclusive 2019 Met Gala last night, not to worry–we’ll always have the chisme. Last year, Cardi attended the infamous Gala for the first time dressed like royalty, and gave us all the Nicki Minaj drama we wanted.

This year, Katy Perry struggled to get a hamburger suit on, fans are arguing over whether Cardi most resembles a period or Nicki Minaj’s gown last year, and so much more bizarre drama went down. Vamos a ver.

Behold: Queen Cardi.

Rumor has it that it took 35 designers a collective 2,000 hour to sew this dress together. It also took four men to hold up her train, following her wherever she went last night.

Of course, the Bardi Gang took to Twitter to talk about Nicki Minaj’s outfit.

Was there ever a feud? Probably, a little bit, yes, but the fanships are at war over it. Who do you think looked more on the camp theme? Tbh, Nicki Minaj told one reporter that the “interpretation” of camp in her outfit is on her designer.

Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj fans are saying that Cardi B just remixed two previous Met Gala dresses.

It’s true that Cardi B’s dress was a showstopper, and some Twitter folks are wishing they could nap under what they think looks like the most comfortable duvet ever.

Other folks are applauding Cardi’s take on “Uterine Lining Eleganza.”

Twitter, you are a trip. Cardi B once said, “Never Again” for being mistaken as a vagina, so she went one step further. We can’t wait to see her Instagram story about how we shouldn’t make her red dress about periods.

The fanart is here because it has been 24 hours so there has been enough time.

“Cardi B #MetaGala appreciation post.”

Honestly, this is the most solid way to portray her period-inspired dress. This is either a way for Cardi B to take a big stand for women, or she was just really digging a red dress this day.

Honestly, once again, Cardi is lifting up women.

@LisaAnnWalter / Twitter

Whether she knows it or not, women are loving this look and honoring their periods all over Twitter. So far, Cardi hasn’t acknowledged this trend.

Also, did Offset and Cardi sext over the Internet?

Their music is one ode to sexting, but dang, these newlyweds are living their best life. We ship a man who publicly, in all caps, worships his “wifey.” Good for them keeping their relationship alive and fresh in the 21st century.

This anonymous man was caught red-handed staring at J.Lo’s booty.

@Instyle / Twitter

The Internet is currently deeply relating to his experience. They are also trying to figure out who the young man is that risked it all for a quick glimpse of the singer’s backside.

J.Lo savagely walked right past a struggling Katy Perry trying to don a hamburger costume?

@AlejoRoa21 / Twitter

She’s too in character with Camp to deal with these outlandish shenanigans. Also, she is already slaying her look so why would she take the time to help someone get into their hamburger suit?

Salma Hayek kissed Jared Leto’s creepy doppelgänger head, as one would.

@mladyrebecca / Twitter

It’s camp, so we don’t really know what’s going on here, but it seems as if Jared Leto brought a replica of his entire head with him. Who hasn’t wanted to do this to make sure everyone in the room knows who the best dressed it?

Salma and Penelope Cruz’s best friendship seems stronger than ever.

@leiaftsolo / Twitter

These two spent the night hanging out with each other and staring into each other’s beautiful brown eyes. We stan a sun goddess and a moon goddess coming together as one.

Camila Mendes and novio Charles Melton made their Met Gala couple debut.

We’re all wishing anyone would look at us the way these two lovebirds look at each other. That’s a wrap, until next year!

Maluma Teams Up With Luxury Brand Balmain For This Must-Have Fashion Collection

Maluma Teams Up With Luxury Brand Balmain For This Must-Have Fashion Collection

It’s 2021 and we have no shortage of epic collaborations between some of the world’s biggest Latino stars and top fashion brands. Everyone from J Balvin and Bad Bunny to Cardi B and now Maluma have entered the fashion industry to sell a lifestyle. And people are buying!

Maluma and French fashion house Balmain bring us a limited-edition collaboration.

Colombian superstar Maluma has partnered with French fashion house Balmain to launch a limited edition collection that will be available from April 12 through June 1 in all Balmain stores, including brick and mortar and online.

The collection, which includes sneakers, blazers, t-shirts, pants and other ready-to-wear clothing, will also be available at Saks Fifth Avenue as of April 15.

The Balmain + Maluma line marks the first time ever the brand has designed a line with a celebrity. And it seems like the brand’s creative designer is pretty excited about the collab. Through photos on his Instagram, Olivier Rousteing referred to the reggaetón singer as his inspiration, captioned with supportive laudatory messages about merging their cultures and joint design process.

“Maluma, more than him being an incredible singer,” Rousteing notes, “[brings] a lot to the fashion community with his joy and his happiness and the fact that he’s always playing up his style from different kinds of houses from around the world, mixing different cultures as well… I think the collaboration with Maluma is obviously giving to Balmain and pushing the aesthetic more internationally.”

Maluma also seems to be pumped for the opportunity!

Although Balmain has featured other celebrities in advertising campaigns and runway shows, it has never actually enlisted a celebrity to help design a full, name-branded line.

The brand’s high profile, along with the haute-couture retail price of the collection, underscores how entrenched Maluma is now in the global fashion world and how valuable his endorsement and name is perceived by high fashion.

“It’s been one of my goals to work with a respected fashion house on a collection, but this journey was more exciting, as Olivier pushed me to design with him and sketch looks that I personally will wear off the stage and showcase high couture with a bit of Papi Juancho,” says Maluma, referencing both his album name and alter ego.

But if you want a piece of the collection be prepared to drop those coins.

Items in the Balmain + Maluma collection range from a black cotton T-shirt that retails for $495, to $1,500 high top sneakers to a $2,555 multi-color print bomber jacket.

Met Gala 2021 Is Happening And Amanda Gorman Is Set To Host The America-Themed Fashion Event

Met Gala 2021 Is Happening And Amanda Gorman Is Set To Host The America-Themed Fashion Event

It’s 2021 and the Met Gala is back this year – after being canceled in 2020 thanks to a pandemic – with superstar poet Amanda Gorman being eyed to host the fashion event of the year. Given the 23-year-old’s show-stopping performance at the inauguration, the theme fittingly will be a celebration of America and American designers.

The Met Gala will return in 2021 with a very special guest as host.

Vogue’s “Oscars of Fashion” famously takes place on the first Monday of May. However, this year it’s been pushed back to September 13, in hopes that life will have returned to something closer to normal by then.

Epic poet Amanda Gorman is reportedly in talks to co-host the event alongside Tom Ford, who is the academy’s president. The breakout star of President Biden’s inauguration, Gorman is on the cover of the magazine’s May issue and the subject of a relentlessly glowing profile inside.

The black-tie gala, which raises funds for Met’s Costume Institute, is normally fashion’s biggest night and sees guests from Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B to Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and even Maluma.

The event was canceled in 2020 thanks to a global pandemic.

The world’s most glamorous party was canceled in 2020 because of COVID-19, which was (and still is) raging the planet at the time. There was a virtual event in place of the 2020 event, with celebs like Julia Roberts, Priyanka Chopra and Amanda Seyfried showing off their looks from home and stars like Mindy Kaling and Adam Rippon taking part in the #MetGalaChallenge, recreating looks from past years.

This year’s event will draw inspiration from all things USA.

The theme of this year’s Met Gala has not been announced, but Page Six says the night will be devoted to honoring America and American designers, following the 18-month-long COVID crisis in this country.

Recent past themes for the event have included “Camp: Notes on Fashion” (2019), “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” (2018), and “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between (2017). And don’t forget 2016, when Zayn Malik wore robot-arms to Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.
