E! didn't know who Travis Scott was at the Met Gala
I didn’t expect Kylie Jenner to bother with the theme. The Kardashians and Jenners never do. But is this the best you could do?
Don’t blame this Alexander Wang mess on her being a new mom. That is an insult to working moms everywhere. Her boobs have no support. It’s as if her dress is flimsily attached to a bandeau with a half-assed exposed zipper on the side. The most interesting aspect is her bedazzled leggings (stockings?), but those were only visible when she walked the stairs.
Travis Scott, on the other hand, looks great. He looks like the Nutcracker crossed with Darth Vader. The leather harness has become a lovely accessory for menswear this year. I loved Adam Rippon’s at the Oscars.
This was Kylie Jenner’s first red carpet since she became a mom. You can tell she looks really happy and relaxed. But as my sister and I watched the livestream on E!, we noticed one of the commentators didn’t even know Travis Scott’s name. It’s not like he’s a nobody. He’s a rapper on the rise. He has a child with Kylie.
This isn’t the first time a black entertainer couldn’t be identified by the mainstream media. Tyrese Gibson was recently mistaken for Taye Diggs by Deadline. Even more horrifying, in January the Grammys aired a commercial that mixed up Childish Gambino with some other black dude. I’m not even going to bring up the Oscars snafu.
