Jay Z's stylist says some stars 'didn't get' Met Gala theme

Jay Z's stylist says some people didn't understand this year's Met Gala theme.

June Ambrose - who dressed the rapper for the event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art last week - has revealed she thinks some stars "didn't get" the theme of China: Through The Looking Glass, when celebrities turned up looking anything but.

June said: "I love that some people got it and some people didn't."

The fashion expert even claimed Jay Z's wife Beyonce's barely-there dress, as well as those worn by Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian West, didn't quite work on the night.

She explained: "It was a lot of that sheer, Bob Mackie-inspired pieces, which is not Chinese."

However, the costume designer admits she thinks they all looked great despite taking the theme into their own hands.

She added: "But, you know, they're musicians. Do they follow rules? Never. Listen, they were stage-savvy. A lot of people thought they weren't right for that particular venue.

"But when you have a killer body like those ladies have -and again, they're musicians, they're artists, they're not models - they're gonna take things out of context. You don't really give them rules. And, I thought they all looked incredible."

Meanwhile, June claims she "went rogue" when it came to dressing 'Holy Grail' rapper Jay.

She told the New York Post newspaper's PageSix column: "I work with Jay, we didn't do a white tie, but he was the perfect accessory for his lady."
