It’s hard to convey how happy this video made me when it sprung out from my Facebook feed this morning – and SPOILER ALERT: PLEASE WATCH IT BEFORE YOU READ ON.
I spent yesterday writing my Rules column for next Sunday about the Met Gala. Specifically my outrage at US Vogue declaring the West-Kardashians the ‘Best Dressed Couple’, then going on to and my nominations for that title, along with the Best Dress and the Best Dressed.
Then along comes this video and totally supports every point I made in the piece, so that made me very happy.
And there are so many other joys. I swooned at Cindy Crawford’s grace. The woman is fifty years old and still, in a group of astonishingly beautiful women, half her age, your eyes go straight to her. I heart heart heart heart her.
The Olsen Twins looking like something out of The Shining. Do they ever smile?
The gorgeous little slice of human adorability which is Alicia Vikander, in that inspiringly great Louis Vuitton outfit. She’s like a dryad – a woodland nymph.
Grimes keeping it real and Grimes-y. She looked so bewildered in the red carpet pictures (‘What am I DOING here? What is this THING I’m wearing?’), so it was great to see her here back in the comfort zone, looking like Curt Cobain’s cheeky little sister.Blake Lively showing just how beautiful pregnant can be in flower strewn pale pink Burberry.
Madonna looking as though she needs a good wash. If only she had a friend brave enough to show her Sunset Boulevard…
Anna Wintour, just standing there like a column of ice. You’ve got to love her – she never goes off her own brand.
And, of course, the moment which made me SHOUT with laughter: the Kardashian-Wests.
Her response in any situation? Show them my butt. His – push to the front.
It must be tricky getting the two of them out of a lift, her exiting butt first, him pushing her out of the way.
My only regret is that they didn’t include Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid – the true Best Dressed Couple, because his dancing would have been something – and the Goddess Beyonce, but any time I want to be entertained today I will flick back to this video for the pure comedic joy of Kest-Wardashians.
