La La Was The Best Kind Of Petty At The Met Gala And Social Media Took Notice

The Met Gala is the most extravagant fundraiser probably in the world. It costs $30,000 a ticket per person to attend and getting your own table can cost up to $275,000. Everyone is there to make a fashion statement – or in the case of La La Anthony, a relationship status update.

La La Anthony’s dress was killer at the Met Gala. So much so, that she made the front page of the Daily News with her avant garde look.

She made it to the front page, right up there with MTA news and puns about The Mets, so clearly, big news.

But we couldn’t help notice the subtle jabs she was throwing out at her recent ex, Carmelo Anthony.

She captioned this stunning photo “Unbreakable” with a black emoji heart. As we reported previously, Carmelo Anthony, was rumored to have fathered a child outside of their marriage, ending what many saw as a New York power couple’s reign. We assume the “shattered” look of her dress, that is still intact, along with the caption, is a statement about how you can try, but you can’t destroy her. It’s a really powerful statement.

No matter where on the Met Gala carpet she was, she was stunning.

Peering over her shoulder and making eye contact with a photographer or two, from this angle her dress seemed like a thunderstorm. It was like lightning making it’s way all the way around, with a storm brewing under the surface.

From this angle you can — wait, what’s that?

I count 8 fingers, excluding thumbs of course, but what’s this?

She’s wearing how many rings?

The space La La left, where her wedding ring used to be, was large enough to land a helicopter on.

It seems that La La was able to flip her middle finger, by using only her ring finger.

Social media definitely noticed.

Some people couldn’t believe how bold she was.

They continued to find any reason to bust Melo’s chops for his lack of a championship ring.

These jokes have to hurt after all this time, especially because they’re true. Where yo’ ring Melo?

Folks noticed that her petty level was ?.

She did exclude her thumbs, but yes, every finger except *that* one.

What’s more, is that she knows the internet clowns Melo for not having rings.

But she still did it to him anyway.

What’s even more than that, two of the rings are snakes.

She’s lowkey calling him a SNAKE!

Well, folks, let that be a lesson to you.

Don’t double cross La La, she always gets the last Ha Ha.


You know she’s thinking “got’im.”

The Met Gala Is Canceled But Will Live Stream Its Most Memorable Moments Tonight

The Met Gala Is Canceled But Will Live Stream Its Most Memorable Moments Tonight

@CardiBGoddess/ Twitter

From the start of our internet presence, we’ve looked forward to the first Monday in May with an enthusiasm similar to that of our abuelas ready for a Sunday service.

Since 1948, the Met Gala has existed and since 1973, when the concept of the Gala theme was first introduced, lovers of fashion and art the world over have looked forward to the year’s most glamorous affair. This year, with New York and the rest of the country doing their part in combatting the Coronavirus pandemic through quarantine and social distancing, the gala has been canceled.

In its place, Vogue has opted to host a virtual event called “A Moment With the Met.”

Vogue’s virtual event will act as a look back at the gala’s most memorable moments.

According to The New York Times, the event will “feature an address by Anna Wintour, a live performance by Florence and the Machine, and a DJ set from Virgil Abloh. Vogue will make a donation to the museum’s Costume Institute, and viewers can contribute as well.” The event will start at 6 p.m. EST on  Vogue’s YouTube channel.

We suspect this year’s streaming event will feature close attention to the Latinas who in the past have destroyed fans with their slick and glamorous presence only to resurrect us all with their looks. In keeping with the theme of this year’s gathering— “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”—, Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B, Selena and more donned elaborate gowns, swathe trains and gold-encrusted crosses and crowns.

Straight from the red carpet, here are the Latinas who brought fans of Ana Wintour’s biggest event to their knees last year which Fierce by mitu covered.

Selena Gomez brought all types of angelic vibes to the Met.

Selena Gomez showed up at the gala looking like an elegant angel without her wings. The Mexican-American singer wore the delicate white dress by Coach with a metallic gold eyeshadow and a silver cross necklace. Bless this look forever and ever, Amen.

With this look, J.LO turned haters into her converts.

Puerto Rican, actress, singer (beauty mogul, designer, and everything else) Jennifer Lopez attended the event alongside her partner Alex Rodriguez. Lopez stunned the red carpet in an elaborate Balmain black dress studded with a cross made up of blue and red jewels. In short, the look was, in the name of the mother, the daughter and holy J.LO type of gorgeous.

The gilded look that Joan Smalls rocked from her head to her toes.

Puerto Rican model Joan Smalls attended the event in a fitted gold crown and a gilded crown topper. Can anyone else say holy be?

The Victoria Secret Angels who traded in their wings to be badass.

Argentinian model Mica Arganaraz attended the event with (From Left to Right) Anja Rubik, Anthony Vaccarello, Amber Valletta, Kate Moss, Charlotte Casiraghi and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Arganaraz wore Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent along with the other models at the event. Literally the most gorgeous fallen angel look I could have imagined.

Eiza Gonzalez channeled the sacrifices of a cloistered nun.

Eiza Gonzalez, the Mexican actress behind “Baby Driver,” wore off an irreverent nun inspired gown designed by Prabal Gurung. Her black and white gown featured bold cut-outs and shimmery sequence. Have mercy girl!

A look that spun Wonderman into a regal queen.

Original Superwoman Lynda Carter looked regal as hell in a gold crown and blue gown. Her structured gown designed by Zac Posen featured a small train and elegant sleeves. Now that’s Latina power to the holiest of powers.

Salma Hayek looked like the answer to all of our prayers.

The Mexican actress attended the event in a dress by Altuzarra and slick wet hair. The gown was completely embroidered and depicted a landscape scene of animals by a lake. Her simple dress and it’s picturesque depiction was a unique take on the gala’s theme and had all of us crossing ourselves in her name.

A look that could qualify a Latina for saintdom.

Most Marvel fans would fail to recognize superheroine Tessa Thompson in her outfit at the event. Dressed up to look like a Catholic priest, thoroughly dedicated Marvel fans will notice the Afro-Panamanian actress’s subtle salute to her Ragnarock character with her white makeup markings on her face. Sanctus, sanctus this look was holy.

Cardi B’s outfit could literally inspire a new religion.

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

Of course, it couldn’t have been much of a surprise to fans when Cardi B showed up to the event looking bold and bodacious. The Dominican-Trinidadian Latina dove full onto the event’s theme with a dress by Jeremy Scott and a jeweled encrusted crown to match. She is the one, and only true queen of the Met TBH.

Giving us life in all gold.

Brazilian model Gisele Bundchen stayed in line with her signature sleek Met Gala style in a gold dress by Versace. According to her Instagram account, the dress was made with 100% organic silk that was ecologically dyed. And earth-friendly peace be with you too Gisele.

Millennials Are Replacing Engagement Rings With Diamonds Pierced Into Their Fingers

Millennials Are Replacing Engagement Rings With Diamonds Pierced Into Their Fingers

The centuries-old tradition of proposing with an engagement ring is facing a new challenger. Because if Instagram is anything to go by, engagement finger piercings are now a thing. Yup, some people are now choosing to declare their eternal love for each other with a diamond piercing instead of an actual ring. Here’s how it works.

Dermal piercings are the latest trend replacing engagement rings.

Getting your ears pierced (probably in the window of Claires, with your friends surrounding you) is a rite of passage for most 13-year-olds. But this isn’t that kind of piercing. It’s called a dermal piercing or (to those in the medical profession) a transdermal implant. It’s hardcore and when done right can look pretty cool.

Also known as microdermals, anchors, dermal anchors, and single-point piercings.

They refer to any piercing that lies on a flat surface of the body – in this case, the finger – and is held in place with an ‘anchor’ that is implanted beneath the skin. Ouch. The jewelry then sits on the surface of the skin, making it look like there are gems or beads on the body.

How Does a Dermal Piercing Work?

PSA to all weak-stomached readers: skip this paragraph. First, a qualified technician will sterilize the area and then use either a dermal punch on to remove a small tube of flesh, or a needle to make an L-shaped pouch, then, using dermal forceps, an anchor with either a footed or round base is inserted into the area.

How long does a dermal piercing last?

While you might not get a choice about what type of dermal base is used, there are several variations. Some are punctured with holes so that the tissue can grow in and around the piercing while others have pivoting feet that keep the piercing in place over time – FYI this is V. important as these little accessories have a habit of migrating and rejecting over time (if this happens to you speak to your piercer STAT as a displaced piercing can be fixed as long as you act fast!).

So why are people opting for piercings?

One reason might be cost: tAccording to recent surveys, most American couples expect to spend between $1,000 and $5,000 on an engagement ring, while dermals come in at around $70.

But there are lots of potential complications.

A dermatological expert told the BBC, “If the piercing is not deep enough there is a risk of it moving, known as migration. If it is too deep the skin begins to grow over the piercing, known as embedding. Other risks include inflammation, scarring and infection – particularly if it is on the hands, as is the case with these particular piercings.” They also point out that, “Another problem with having a dermal piercing on your hand is the increased likelihood of it catching on something.”

… Let’s just take a second for that to sink in.

If the mere thought of your ring piercing catching on your clothes or hair isn’t enough to put you off, some piercing studios have said they won’t do dermal piercings on people’s fingers, for that very reason. So if you’re thinking of getting a finger piercing, keep in mind that it will hurt, it could migrate, embed itself, or get infected, and you may accidentally rip your finger skin off while putting on a sweater —all in the name of love. You have been warned.
