Who would’ve thought it takes Carmelo Anthony longer to get ready than his always well-put-together wife La La? These two, blowing up stereotypes all over the place. One of the cutest basketball couples ever stopped by the annual Met Costume Gala last night looking amazing in blue and black. La La’s custom-made Zac Posen gown was the perfect royal blue, and it accentuated her curves in all the right places. Carmelo was spiffy in his black Rag & Bone tux, paired with wide frame hipster glasses.
When VH1 News asked who took the longest, La La revealed, “He always takes longer than I do, absolutely,” she said. “When it comes to getting dressed, he is so slow.”
What takes the NY Knick so long? “I don’t know. I procrastinate,” he said. “I got to play the music, I got to take my time. I don’t like to be rushed.”
Diva much? “Exactly,” La La concurred, but Carmelo protested, “Not at all.” Picture an over 6″ basketball player dolling himself up in the mirror … for an hour or two.
And in case you were wondering what happens to the marvelous Posen gown after the event, La La has a couple of options in mind. “I save it and I’ll either remix it or make it straight, make it short at the bottom, or just save it and have the memories,” she said. Two snaps to La La for spilling the beans on Carmelo’s long grooming process!
