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.

Unbreakable ?#metgala

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.”

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.

La La Anthony Talks About Raising Her Kids With Vanessa Bryant: ‘That’s My Family’

La La Anthony Talks About Raising Her Kids With Vanessa Bryant: ‘That’s My Family’

La La Anthony is opening up about her close relationship with Vanessa Bryant, whom she calls “family”.

In an interview with ET, the Puerto Rican actress and television personality talked about how her and Bryant are creating “life long bonds” between their children by having them spend quality time together. La La is mother to 13-year-old Kiyan Carmelo Anthony, while Bryant is mother to three daughters (Natalia, Bianka Bella, Capri Kobe).

Anthony has previous documented the two families hanging out together on social media.

She appears to have been spending a lot of time with Vanessa Bryant since Kobe Bryant passed away in January. She even posted an adorable TikTok video of the two of them doing the “Don’t React Challenge” where they listen to old school hits and try not to dance or move to the music. Fans were overjoyed to see Vanessa smiling and laughing again.

La La said that having her son spend time with Vanessa’s kids is “one of the most important parts” of their friendship. “They [the kids] look at themselves as cousins and they do a lot together,” she said. “Kiyan’s the oldest, but all the kids look up to Kiyan.” She went on to explain how Bryant’s kids are always calling Kiyan for advice and support.

La La got deep when she talked about how deeply the two women’s lives are intertwined.

“I’ve been a part of [Vanessa’s children’s] lives from before they were even thought of, so just to continue to be a part of their journey is amazing, to be Auntie La La and to always be there for them no matter what is an amazing thing and responsibility that I don’t take lightly,” she says.

She continued by saying, “That’s my family and that’s what it’s always gonna be. I’m always [going to have] their best interests at heart no matter what.”

This isn’t the first time La La has gotten candid about her relationship with Vanessa. Back in September, La La explained how much of an honor it is to be able to be part of Vanessa’s support system in the difficult months after her husband and her daughter’s deaths.

“You don’t dip out on your friends when it gets really hard,” she told ET. “And she’s going through something that is unimaginable, that I can’t even fathom what that feels like.”

“Just to be a friend and be there to make her laugh when she needs to, cry when she needs to, is a beautiful thing,” she continued. “But that’s what friends do for each other. I’m always going to be there for her and the girls and just want to see her just continue to be strong and amazing.”
