The top 10 (possibly) lingerie inspired looks from the Met Gala 2017.

I don’t usually do this…

“Pause for dramatic effect”

…but Monday night was amazing.

Even for me, unknown not-yet-rich person, who was watching live on twitter, from the universal headquarters of underwear, Aka my bed. 

This is NOT a critique post. Loads of people will be analyzing looks and listing worst and best dressed celebs, just not me. 

I’m only writing to share the stunning deliciousness of outfits that struck me as being lingerie-esque in nature.

Without further ado, and in no particuly order…

1. Lala Anthony

What. A. Dress. Do I need to say more, or do you see the magic I’m still trying to absorb? More? OK

Black + Sheer + Adjustable length = A look !

2. Rita Ora

Is it just me? Or would you like to unwrap her for your birthday? 

From The sneak peeks of skin, to the sheen of silk satin. See what I did there?  😉

3. Kendall Jenner 

If this isn’t lingerie, I don’t know what is. That’s a proper thong! It’s even made by luxury lingerie house, La Perla. Not sure I’d wear it anywhere but in my future mansion, but I’m not here to judge.

4. The one and only Kerry Washington

I can’t tell if her bra is peeking over the top of this work of art called a dress, or if the cups are a part of it but I love it. Also, I’m really feeling the cutouts that give you glimpses of MELANIN !

5. Ashley Graham

This beauty of an outfit seems corset inspired, no? There’s nothing else to say really. I love her.

6. Mary J. Blige 

Three words, “lingerie as outerwear”. Four more words, “look at that body”.

Bonus ! – Gigi Hadid

Okay, the only reason she made my list is, that’s a bodysuit. Keep scrolling please. 

7. Nicki Minaj 

All I could think was; shapewear underneath a robe. I like it though.

8. Emma Robertson

Don’t those tiny straps and lace remind you of sexy slips and nightgowns?

9. Kim Kardashian

I don’t know about you, but this looks like something to wear while lounging beside a pool on a well deserved, Caribbean vacation. Makes me think of swimsuit cover ups and movie nights with Bae. (One of the Hemsworths, in case you were wondering.)  🙂

10. Last, but definitely never EVER the least, Her Royal Highness, Rihanna. 

I know. The closest thing to lingerie in her outfit are the thigh high straps from her heels. I also know I said I wouldn’t judge, but for the theme of this years gala, she MURDERED the look. So yes, she gets a seat at the table. 

Ofcourse, she owns the entire building so…

There you have it, 10 looks I think may have, in one way or another, on purpose or by chance, been inspired by the glorious world of lingerie. 

Are there any looks that made you think underwear-y thoughts? Did I miss someone? Tell me in the comments. 

Thank you for reading. The plan is to post more often and now that I’m back to work I will definitely try to.
