MASSIVE for Opening Ceremony

OC teams up with MASSIVE for a gay manga-inspired collection

Massive_OpeningCeremony_01_GAYLETTER

Still looking for something quiche to wear to NYC Pride this week? Opening Ceremony’s got you covered. The NYC clothing company has partnered with LGBT manga-inspired apparel brand MASSIVE for a new capsule collection, ‘MASSIVE for Opening Ceremony,’ featuring some truly amazing artwork by manga artist Jiraiya. Branching from a one-off sweater available on OC’s e-store last year, the new collection is definitely a must-have, for both the trendy outfit possibilities as well as Jiraiya’s virtuosic prints. Jiraiya is like the Tom of Finland of Asia — think glistening beefcakes and sumo wrestlers in some very, very compromising positions. It’s gorgeous, colorful, subversive work, which makes it definitely on point for Pride month.

 

The collection includes t-shirts, muscle shirts, rugby shorts, a beach towel, and even a Jiraiya-edition double hole cup sex toy produced by Tenga. To make things even better, all of the apparel will be available in sizes ranging from XS to XXXL. So, unlike most fashion-forward options, you can still partake in the stylish collection whether you’re a big bear or a skinny twink. Color us totally impressed (and a little turned on, too).

The Met Gala 2014 Drawn to life

Famous people wearing famous dresses

Jay Z and Beyonce_GAYLETTER

The Met Gala, The Costume Institute Gala, the Anna Wintour famous people in pretty dresses party — whatever you call it, it happened last night. Every year Anna determines the dress code keeping in mind the current Costume Institute’s exhibition. The exhibition this year is ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion.’ Charles was a British-born fashion designer known as “America’s First Couturier.” He is “widely considered to have been a master of cutting and is known for his highly structured aesthetic.” Thanks Wikipedia!

 

We asked illustrator Devin Wallace to draw some of the best looks from the night.

 

First off, is Jay Z and Beyoncé Knowles, (above) both in Givenchy. Jay looks fine, he seems to have lost some weight (maybe that shot from last year of him jumping off that yacht made him do a bit of a, literal, gut check.)

 

Queen B in her music videos, is not the same as B on the the red carpet. There’s always something not quite right with her gown choices, it’s like Tina jumps in and fucks them up a little, right before she leaves the house.

 

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in Lanvin. Anna Wintour has had a real turn around on Kim. I guess once she put her on the cover she has to invite her to everything. I love that they are posing like they are being photographed for the cover all over again — you’ve had your moment, move on. Kanye looks like Kanye in a suit, we are familiar with his fashion choices, but Kim looks red carpet boring, she could be going to any event in LA. We preferred her at last year’s event when she was pregnant — at least her baby bump was interesting.

 

Rihanna in Stella McCartney. We love her in this look, it’s fresh, nothing cliche about it, and as usual she looks confident and high as fuck.

 

Sarah Jessica Parker in Oscar de la Renta. The dress is classic, black and white whatever, but she is still living in a Carrie fantasy.

 

Lupita Nyong’o in Prada. Fun and pretty. People are obsessed with this girl, I kind of get it.

 

Victoria Beckham in a dress from her own collection. She looks like she just got out of the bathroom wrapped in a towel. At least it’s chic and minimalist and it probably looks great in person.

 

Twincest! Mary-Kate in vintage Gianfranco Ferré and Ashley Olsen in vintage Chanel. They look great together. These girls know how to keep it interesting.

 

Kylie Minogue in Marchesa. She could be any boring white girl wearing a ‘proper’ boring gown. But, it’s Kylie! It’s Kylie at the MET. OMG, OMG!

 

Sarah Silverman in Zac Posen. Love this girl, but don’t really love this dress. I know the dude they were honoring was into big-ass dresses, but you don’t have to be so literal. She should have brought her dog Doug to the event. He would have been the perfect accessory for this look.

 

Frank Ocean in Givenchy. We want to date him, he’s so quiche!
