Oh, THESE TWO:
First of all, one of the most amusing things about looking at the pictures from the Met Ball is seeing how many of them include part of ALT’s giant purple train. The answer is: most of them. Which I suppose is the risk you run when you go out wearing something more dramatically be-tailed than your average wedding gown. Second: do you suppose Anna and ALT talked about their outfits for tonight? My personal theory is that ALT never even goes into Vogue now that he’s besties with Tyra, but if he did, and if they did, I like to think it went something like this:
A DUBS: Andre. Which terrifically voluminous tidbit of ridiculousness are you wearing to the Gala tonight?
ALT: Darling! OF COURSE I’m wearing my PURPLE. CAFTANITUDE!
A DUBS: The shiny purple or the matte purple? Andre. You know I demand specificity in all things.
ALT: SHINY! What, do you think I’m AMISH? IT’S THE MET BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLL.
A DUBS: Excellent. Thank you. I, too, shall be wearing something that bears a passing resemblance to a caftan.
ALT: CAFTANITUDE PART DEUX!
A DUBS: Yes. Indeed. You can go now.
All that being said — or imagined — there is something about Anna’s groovy, sparkly, stripy caftan that I dig. Does it look like something a very old lady might wear to a fancy dinner in Palm Beach, where she’ll perch on a tiny chair and say mean things about the help? Yes. Do I still kinda like it? Possibly.
