The Worst Looks From The 2022 Met Gala

First, let me preface what I'm about to say by explaining that I am not a fashion expert. I couldn't tell you the difference between Couture and Converse, and I truly don't relish hurting anyone's feelings.

That being said, although I am not an expert, I most assuredly know what I like and what I do not. So for the sake of levity and in the interest of not taking ourselves too seriously, here's a list of what I believe to be the worst looks from the 2022 Met Gala.

Anderson .Paak went way over the top.

It feels as if Anderson was channeling the ghosts of George Harrison, Bruce Lee, and the lead singer from Frankie Says Relax. I get that it's in keeping with his Silk Sonic aesthetic, but that jacket should come affixed with a volume knob.

Future is living proof as to why you should never skip leg day.

I'm trying my absolute best to come up with a clever I Never Liked You pun, but I keep on getting distracted by Future's tatted-up legs, his high black dress socks, and chainmail gloves.

Shawn Mendes looked just like 'Dr. Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness'.

Let me be the first (and one of the only people) to say that I actually like Sean's strange look. If ever there was a time to dress up as your favorite superhero, the Met Gala is certainly it.

Fredrik Robertsson looked as if he was wearing some kind of medieval torture chamber.

Frederik Robertsson's outfit looked like a peacock who'd fallen upon the Iron Throne from HBO's Game of Thrones. I get that there's probably more at play here, but this one went right over my head.

Sebastian Stan looked like a walking bottle of Pepto Bismol.

If you can honestly look at this photo of Sebastian Stan without softly singing "Nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea!" to yourself, then you are a far better person than I am.

Lenny Kravitz looked like a bastardized version of 'Edward Scissorhands'.

I'm also getting some serious Johnathan Davis vibes circa 1994. Not many people can pull off the whole "Freak On A Leash" look, and sadly neither can Lenny Kravitz.

Something is missing from Kendall Jenner's look.

Don't get me wrong, her gown is actually quite stunning. But I don't know a single soul who can get away with shaving their eyebrows. We grow them for a reason and Kendall would do well to remember that for next year.

Gigi Hadid's gown is reminiscent of Jennifer Lopez in 'The Cell'.

If you never got around to seeing JLo's cult classic horror film, you really don't know what you're missing. I also feel as if George Costanza from Seinfeld could jump out at any moment, screaming "It's Goretex!"

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner made an admirable attempt but wound up missing the mark.

I can see how Joe and Sophie were attempting to pull off an old Hollywood meets industrial goth kind of aesthetic. But in the end, they wound up looking more like Elvis Presley and Morticia Addams.

Ben Platt has a lot going on.

If I had to sum up Ben's Met Gala fit in one word, it would be "Confused." Is it a tuxedo or a corset? Are you really wearing bell-bottom dress pants and platform shoes? And what on earth is with those acrylic white daggers on your fingertips?

Elon Musk appeared to be channeling his inner supervillain with this Penguin-inspired look.

Yes, it was incredibly sweet of Elon to bring his mother along as a date. But all he needs is a monocle, a purple tophat and Elon is basically the Penguin from the 1960s Batman TV show.

Kourtney Kardashian was finally outdone by her partner in PDA, Travis Barker.

The only thing more cringe-inducing than watching Kourtney and Travis sucking face on The Kardashians was having to bear witness to that beige abomination she had draped around her midsection.

The Matrix has Irina Shayk.

Don't hear what I'm not saying — Irina Shayk is a total badass. But at the end of the day, she's wearing more black leather than Morpheus, Trinity, and Neo combined. Hopefully, she basted her body in baby powder before suiting up.

The Midas touch simply wasn't working for Cara Delevingne

This one pains me to have to say, mainly because I've had a crush on Cara since I first saw her appear in Paper Towns. I guess it's true what they say — nothing gold can stay.

It was a swing and a miss for Kylie Jenner.

All the peanuts and cracker jacks in the world couldn't rally this unfortunate look of Kylie's to make a comeback victory. Considering the high standard she's set in years prior, this fit had many people scratching their heads.
