HRH Wintour in UnMcQueen

I am feverishly following the steady stream of style that is the Met Gala red carpet. God bless the internet for that.

Much to my dismay, the story thus far seems to be not who is wearing McQueen, but who isn’t.

Even HRH Ah-na opted for another designer.

It’s no secret that she is quite loyal to Karl, but her choice not to wear McQueen really surprised me tonight.

I am guessing she didn’t wear classic Alexander McQueen so as not to offend Ms. Burton and she opted not to wear Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, out of respect for Lee McQueen’s legacy.

Or, she decided to wear Chanel all along, for royal sport.

I am making a list and taking names of non-McQueen dreamers.

Holding my hands up to the fashion gods, I ask: Is anyone wearing an actual, take-your-breath-away-fall-to-the-ground-by-Lee-McQueen dress?

Oh, the humanity.

More later…
