By now I'm sure you've seen highlights from the Met Gala, YES the outfits were amazing, YES some people went over the top and that's the point, YES Kim's waist was very small!
But there were TWO outfits that should get some major love and they came from Lena Waithe and Kerby Jean-Raymond. Kerby designed the looks but each represented something that is very important to the other person!
On the back of Lena's jacket it said "Black Drag Queens Invented Camp" - "To me, I really wanted to make sure my outfit represented the black drag queens who started this camp thing about being over the top and all that jazz."
and on Kerby's Jacket it said "Fix Your Credit, Pool Money, Buy Back The Block"
"For me, it's over the top but also take everything you're trying to do to the next level. It's about being extra, doing the most. Black folks do the most all the time. Kerby came up with the idea and I loved it from jump. We've got Nipsey Hussle in the building. His lyrics are also [included]."
Each suit also included lyrics from artist the loved. The lyrics are in the pin stripes!
I know not everyone will agree with me, but I LOVE that Fashion can make a statement and make you feel a certain type of way! It's a form of expression and I Love it! - Natalia
