    I love it. So far she's the only one I've seen who wore something that's both cool and fits with the man vs. machine theme, and I love the platinum blonde on her. Makes her look her age rather than a dowdy mum.

    awful from top to bottom. I really hate her hair. Taylor and JLaw need to go back to less severe hair colors.

    She took it to slutsville. Now she looks like everyone else.

    Right when you think there's nothing more about her to make fun of, she goes and gives us ammo. Horrible hair, and you can't make wonder bread edgy.

    I hate it. I can't believe this is what she chose for the fashion event of the year.

    I do, however, think there are elements that evoke the theme. Most pix I've seen don't at all.

    In general it seems a lot of guests didn't really understand the theme. Granted, it wasn't as easy to translate as Orientalism or The Age of Napoleon, but few seemed to get ManusxMachina

    Exhibition Overview

    The Costume Institute's spring 2016 exhibition, presented in the Museum's Robert Lehman Wing, will explore how fashion designers are reconciling the handmade and the machine-made in the creation of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear.

    With more than 150 ensembles dating from the early 20th century to the present, the exhibition will address the founding of the haute couture in the 19th century, when the sewing machine was invented, and the emergence of a distinction between the hand (manus) and the machine (machina) at the onset of mass production. It will explore this ongoing dichotomy, in which hand and machine are presented as discordant tools in the creative process, and question the relationship and distinction between haute couture and ready-to-wear.

    The Robert Lehman Wing galleries on the Museum's first floor and ground level will present a series of case studies to unravel the hand/machine conundrum. At the center will be an installation of toiles and prototypes presented as garments in the making or "monuments to ideas." Emanating from this presentation will be a series of rooms based on traditional métiers of the haute couture, including embroidery, featherwork, artificial flowers, pleating, lacework, and leatherwork, which will be presented alongside versions that incorporate innovative processes, such as 3D printing, computer modeling, bonding and laminating, laser cutting, and ultrasonic welding. A room dedicated to the ateliers of tailoring and dressmaking will reflect the traditional division of a maison de couture.

    yeah she got the theme wrong, but at least she tried.
    i don't like it though, not just because it's ugly but because it's so not her. you can get out of your comfort zone and try something different and out there for the met ball, but it should still be you.
