Evan Mock wears Head of State at the 2022 Met Gala

With summer days inching closer, the impulse might be to emphasize your décolletage by way of exposure. But I say, it’s time to play ruff and go all out—and upward, and assert yourself with a collar that any drama queen would be comfortable in.

Take a cue from Evan Mock’s festive exaggerated collar at the recent Met Gala (above).

The Gossip Girl star’s gorgeous get-up, which featured a corset-style custom suit and ruffled neck and wrist details, was made by New York’s Head Of State.

It was HOS founder Taofeek Abijako’s first time dressing guests for the avidly-observed affair (The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira also rocked a HOS frock), and the moment came just after the label was nominated for a CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award in late April. (So, file this brand under “One to Watch”.)

But it’s not only hip indie houses that are encouraging us to take our napes to the next level. See the rest of our picks after the jump!

!! OMG, why not wear it? Palomo Spain’s Corporate Pannier Look !!

Palomo Spain Spring/Summer 2022

A look from the Palomo Spain Spring/Summer 2022 collection

If writing this column has shown me anything, it’s that two of fashion’s most prominent trends are pieces that make a scene and take up space.

While these notions obviously aren’t mutually exclusive, they’re perhaps no more pleasingly prevalent than in the presence of panniers—those hip-extending accents that found real footing in the fashion world back in the 18th century.

Palomo Spain founder Alejandro Gomez Palomo understood the assignment when offering corporate-corseted flared-out fare on the Spanish brand’s Spring 2022 runway.

What better way to emerge back into office life than swishing in with a look that says business up top, party on the bottom?

Reportedly taking influence from the ‘80s-era excess of cultural icons like The Wolf of Wall Street and American Psycho, here, Palomo illustrates that history can always be mined and tweaked to suit the times.

Especially if those times see executive pirates continually blasting themselves into space; I can’t think of a more appropriate reaction than to reach for workwear that’s expressly beyond comprehension.

!! OMG, happy Friday! Hosted by Rihanna’s RAVE-themed baby shower !!

So Rihanna is bigtime preggos at the moment, and her boo Rocky was arrested in connection to a 2021 shooting – but it didn’t stop them from throwing a massive RAVE-themed baby shower on Friday night “because they felt it was important to surround themselves with family and close friends”

“They flew out some family and friends from Barbados,” says the source, who added that the invite list was “very intimate.”

The source adds that doing a shower together was always the plan, noting, “Rihanna didn’t want a shower for just the ladies, they’re in this together, it was always going to be a joint celebration.”

As for the theme, it’s no surprise the couple opted for something a little edgier than a simple brunch. “Rihanna has a great sense of humor and loves to have fun,” says ET’s source.

Guests wore neon outfits and were asked not take any pics or videos, and they got to take home these cute T-shirts to remember the occasion! Check out more of the baby shower rave swag after the jump! Hmmm… They should have given out Kikwear Phat Pants, Osiris skate shoes AND tennis visors if they really wanted to nail the look for guests!
