The Met Ball is the most fun night for fashion every year. Or as the ponies would say: BEST. NIGHT. EVER. Unlike other red carpet events, the Met Ball is about fashion. Fashion takes center stage, legitimately, and so we get:
Coco Rocha as a humanized My Little Pony. Humanizing the ponies in art and cosplay is a huge part of the Pony and Brony fandom (my family is planning it for an upcoming convention ourselves). But I never expected to see it so CLEARLY on the red carpet. Basically, Coco is my fashion hero FOREVER for this.
Although she’s in Fluttershy’s colors, she’s rocking Pinkie Pie’s attitude: this is MY party. But don’t worry, I found the other ponies.
Okay, you know where this starts:
Diane’s look says “King Karl practically raised me, Jason Wu is a BFF, I am a goddess and I know how to work it, everyone else can just go home, I win.”
Josh’s look says “Look at her. I win.”
Seriously people. Joshua Jackson, Diane Kruger, Jason Wu, and the Met. WE ALL WIN.
Two characters. One male, one female. One Marvel, one DC. One over 80 years old, one over 800 years old. One all-American, one a Greek immigrant — both famous for wearing the American flag.
Captain America and Wonder Woman are star-spangled icons.
