I did some soul-searching last week and concluded I’m not fashionable enough. I want to put a little pizzazz in my life so that when I teach class, my college students will take notice rather than fall asleep during a life-altering lecture. I decided to get a brand new “look.”
And what better place to find inspiration than the Met Gala, that phantasmagoria of fashion that rivals “Game of Thrones” for sheer adventure and terror. The gala occupies a place of honor in the pantheon of American events, along with the Presidential Medal of Freedom Awards, the Video Music Awards and Heidi Klum’s annual Halloween party.
