Tom Ford Shades Katy Perry's Memorable Met Gala Look

Ford spoke about the Met Gala and some of Perry's 'costumes' in a new interview with 'Time.'

Tom Ford isn’t too thrilled with the development of the Met Gala. in a new interview with timeThe fashion designer said the ball has turned into a “dress party.”

“The only thing I wish it didn’t happen about the Met is that it’s turned into a costume party,” Ford said. Before throwing shade at Katy Perry, she shared, “She was wearing a very beautiful dress going to an exhibition about the 18th century,” she has worn a variety of costumes to the gala in recent years, including Here’s her chandelier ensemble, which she wore to the 2019 “Camp: Notes on Fashion” themed event—before changing into a hamburger outfit later that night.

“You didn’t have to look like the 18th century, you didn’t have to dress like a hamburger, you didn’t have to get into a van where you stood because you couldn’t sit because you wore a chandelier,” Ford continued.

While Ford is certainly here for more fashion and less costumes, he’s still serving as honorary co-chair of this year’s Met Gala alongside Adam Mosseri and Anna Wintour. Meanwhile, Regina King, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds and Lin-Manuel Miranda will serve as co-chairs of the evening.

ET spoke to Anna Wintour biographer Amy Odell about her new book, Anna: Biographywhere he addressed his criticism of Ford.

“One of the biggest criticisms at the Met Gala, especially in the fashion world, is that it has become Halloween. It has become a costume party,” Odell began. “Examples that are often cited are dressing like a chandelier and a hamburger, both of which were worn by Katy Perry.”

She continued, “Tom Ford, one of the biggest names in fashion in the world and certainly the top designer in American fashion, said he misses the old days of the Met Gala, when you could just wear a pretty, elegant outfit. And you didn’t need to dress like a hamburger like a chandelier. He told me if anyone wanted me to dress them up, ‘I’d say what’s your favorite color? What do you love?’ and I’ll make them a pretty dress,’ but she doesn’t want to make a dress.”

Odell said Ford isn’t the only one who shares that opinion, adding that even the late Andre Leon Talley thought some looks were too dress-y.

“To be clear, Tom Ford isn’t the only person criticizing that the Met Gala is too much like Halloween,” Odell said. “Andre Leon Talley, I said before she died, before the book, and she said the same thing, and she especially thought of Lady Gaga’s red carpet fashion performance, where she took off from one outfit to another. – That was 5 outfits for the Camp Gala in 2019 – they thought it was too much.”

Wintour, on the other hand, is all about the over-the-top moments.

“Anna Wintour, however, prefers the over-the-top look, as I report in the book,” she said. “A close friend of hers said to me, ‘That’s the English part of her.’ Anna grew up in London. She’s half British, and she loves to party dress up.”

Taking place May 2 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, this year’s gala will coincide with the second part of the Costume Institute’s exhibition, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” with the theme “Gilded Glamor and White Tie.”
