Tziporah Salamon, the 67-year-old fashion consultant and one of the stars of the 2014 “Advanced Style”
documentary, is mad. The Met Gala
had occurred earlier in the week, and Salamon was borderline offended by the outfits she saw documented on the red carpet.
“One of the rules of dressing is that wherever you go, you have respect to the occasion. So when you go on a job interview, you’re dressing for it. When you’re at graduation, you’re dressing for it. When you go to church or temple, you’re dressing for it. And Monday night, we’re honoring Rei Kawakubo. There’s not one designer whose arc is as wide as hers, so surely you or your stylist could have found something from her body of work to put on. Instead it was strapless, strapless, strapless, and it’s boring!”
