Joan Smalls Is Pure Punk and Heat in a Fiery Red Dress at the Met Gala
On a regular red carpet, the old saying goes, red must be avoided, but not at the 2017 Met Gala. The event celebrating Comme des Garcons's Rei Kawakubo was meant to be flooded with scarlet gowns galore, since the shade is one the designer loves. Joan Smalls definitely got the memo, wearing a Topshop red dress with a low-cut neckline, a high slit, and side cutouts. Can you say sexy?
The dress was so punk, with tiny silver studs and chain details around the trimming, which is why Joan paired it with a fake lip ring (over her Esteé Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Insatiable Ivory) and a few cartilage studs.
