I’m so old, and Emma Chamberlain is so young that I’ve been actively avoiding writing about her. But I’m drunk at the moment and so, as such, I’ve decided to YOLO it and write about the amusing moment when Alexa Chung met Ms. Chamberlain at this year’s Met Gala.
What’s so amusing to me is there was definitely some awkward hostility between the two It Girls. It was like the passing of the torch from one It Girl Era to another It Girl Era.
Both women are gorgeous and witty, but as an Old, I have to give Ms. Chung credit for being the wittier of the two. It will be interesting to see what happens to her if the head of British Vogue, Edward Enninful, somehow manages to out American Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
Anyway, both women are lovely. I just thought it was amusing that they were forced to meet each other like American It Girl anti-matter to British It Girl matter.
