As the image architect Sorry For What I Said When We Were Working Sheep shirt. behind Zendaya’s greatest style hits. Celine Dion’s fashion renaissance, and Anne Hathaway’s outré reinvention, Roach has created his share of Met Gala looks but 2019 marks his first time as an attendee. Though he delivered the bibbidi-bobbidi-boo that set Zendaya’s outfit moving and arrived in a dazzling periwinkle suit of his own, complete with chariot clutch that nodded to the fairytale, his personal gala bucket list is surprisingly down to earth. “I’m just actually looking forward to seeing the exhibit,” he said with a laugh.
“I’ve been dressing people for the past five years but haven’t gotten to see one!”The lucky few who’ve already toured the Costume Institute’s “Camp: Notes on Fashion” exhibition (which opens to the public on May 9) have been posting a flurry of their favorite looks on Instagram Sorry For What I Said When We Were Working Sheep shirt. Erdem Moralioglu’s twin mannequins in pastel pink and blue prairie dresses are high on the list; even his date for last night’s Met Gala, Rachel Brosnahan of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, couldn’t resist striking a pose with them. Her ruffled hot pink Erdem gown cut a similar silhouette with its high neck, long sleeves, puffed-up shoulders, and touches of subversion. “I feel like a goth-y Victorian princess in this dress but also like myself,” she told Vogue just before walking the red (actually, pink!) carpet. “It’s whimsical and elegant and a bit of an extravaganza. I’m such a big fan of Erdem’s work, and I loved sharing ideas back and forth across the pond with him while he was bringing the dress to life in London.”Moralioglu designed her gown as a cousin to a dress in his Fall 2019 show, which was inspired by the troubled life of Principessa Orietta Doria Pamphilj. As for the “Camp” exhibition looks, they were an homage to a pair of English transvestites from the 1870s named Stella and Fanny, who informed Moralioglu’s Spring 2019 collection last September. “These dresses are some of the first things you see when you enter Andrew Bolton’s ‘Camp’ world,” Moralioglu explains. “That Victorian strictness and drama definitely had an influence on the dress I made for Rachel.”Here, the duo snapped a few selfies as they got ready for the gala—Brosnahan’s first—and put the finishing touches on her look. (You’ll notice she has black velvet bows in her ponytail to match the details of her gown.) Inside the museum, her fuchsia dress looked even better against the cotton-candy-pink everything—from the roses-and-flamingos centerpiece to the enormous pink-feathered walls. Moralioglu might have had a feeling pink would be a prominent hue, of course; it might even be the campiest color of all.
