No one understands Christmas begins with Christ shirt. the power of camp quite like Lady Gaga. Though the Oscar winner switches her style at the drop of a pink-brimmed hat, many of her greatest moments on the red carpet have involved deliberately tongue-in-cheek fashion. As one of the hosts of this year’s Costume Institute gala, Gaga can be expected to arrive at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday night wearing something that pushes beyond the boundaries of good taste. But she’s had years of practice making the runway’s campiest creations work.Once you’ve worn meat dresses and steampunk goggles, nothing is off-limits. Yet Gaga has managed to make even the most outlandish outfits feel approachable. Sure, her legions of Little Monsters may not run out and dress in head-to-toe Gareth Pugh or custom Moschino, but seeing her at her kookiest serves as an inspiration for all.
Responsible for pushing the needle when it comes to what pop stars dare to wear—check the pre- and post-The Fame outfits of your favorite musicians to understand the impact of her influence—she continues to excel at pulling off the impossible Christmas begins with Christ shirt.She may have toned things down slightly now that she’s an Academy Award winner, but a look back at her camp best proves she’s still the star to beat when it comes to audacious fashion.Suki Waterhouse has a secret weapon when it comes to preparing for the red carpet. There’s hair and makeup magic involved, sure, but there’s also her adorable dog, Chili, who stays by her side and calms her nerves ahead of any event that involves stepping in front of the cameras. Last night in New York, Waterhouse did just that for the premiere of her new film Pokémon Detective Pikachu and Chili was, once again, with her during the prep process at the Bowery Hotel. Also soothing: the fact that she had a spectacular dress to wear, one designed by Richard Quinn. Of the full-skirted floral gown embellished with a giant black bow, Waterhouse explained that she “had Pokemon in mind,” when choosing the ensemble. “Bellsprout of the Ball,” she says jokingly, referring to the globular-shaped flower creature from the Pokémon franchise. “I also love wearing British designers too,” the London native added. “I’ve been wanting to wear Richard Quinn for ages.”In the days leading up to the premiere, Waterhouse says that she “had an Iván Pol Beauty Sandwich facial,” and “spent a couple of hours in the bath watching Mubi and drinking hot chocolate right before getting dressed.” Her routine also included a hair scrub, courtesy of Davines, as well as a Barbara Sturm mask. Between the beauty regimen and playtime with Chili, Waterhouse managed to snag a moment of peace before the chaos of the big night. She notes that she tends to get anxious on the red carpet and will start singing or “doing a nervous laugh.” By the looks of her laid-back getting-ready routine, however, you’d never know it. Above, Waterhouse shares images from last night’s premiere: pup, Richard Quinn gown, and all.
