WARNING: Hot takes ahead

Adwoa Aboah in Tory Burch: Yes

Adwoa Aboah looked like a Boldini painting come to life in her Tory Burch gown which checked all the boxes of Gilded Age fashion: voluminous sleeves, a structured bodice, fun patterns, and a bustle (of sorts). Also, the dress had pockets. Immediate yes.

Kylie Jenner in Off White: Err No?

I mean... need we say more? Truth be told, seeing the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan on this year's Met Gala red carpet elicited an unanimous "Oh No Baby What Is You Doin" from us at VibeCheck HQ. At least this... uh... sporty-bridal-couture-chic ensemble paid tribute to Off-White's late founder, Virgil Abloh.

Emma Chamberlain in Louis Vuitton: Yes (surprise)

A somewhat controversial take, we know. Although Emma's Louis Vuitton look was not the most ostentatious or thematic (a constant amongst all Louis Vuitton guests... hm.), it was a unique interpretation of the theme which blended the fashion styles of the Gilded Age with current fashion trends today. So for that, we say yes.

Billie Eilish in Gucci: I Am So Sorry

If you thought that the previous entry was controversial... well. Although Billie's look definitely captured key style elements of the era, we just can't agree with how they look together. The pastel green lace was a turn-off, and looked rather strange standing alone in an outfit otherwise made of heavier satin. Plus, the not-quite-matching shades of green and yellowish-cream satin clashed hard, rather than bringing the whole look together.

Taylor Hill in Miss Sohee

Miss Sohee's designs are the definition of intricate glamor. So when model Taylor Hill showed up in a grand ensemble from the brand's Autumn/Winter 2022 collection, we cheered. The collection was inspired by traditional Korean folk art “Minhwa”, and featured expansive embroidery and beadwork on voluminous silhouettes, just like on the cape gown pictured above.
