Amber Heard attends the 2013 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City in a custom Emilio Pucci red chantilly lace gown with red sheer point d’esprit panels and ruby red crystal and scarlet bead embroidery accessorized with an Emilio Pucci red stingray studded minaudière and Pomellato jewelry.

      Ech no

    • marlie

      She looks gorgeous. Not terribly punk-y, but she still looks gorgeous, nonetheless. I love that there’s enough sheer to be sexy, but not trashy.

    • Shannon Campe

      “Yeah I’m Johnny Depp’s girlfriend! YOU WANNA MAKE SOMETHING OF IT?!?!”

      • Lily

        She is? Aw, that means she broke up with her girlfriend. I loved them together :(

        • Shannon Campe

          Me too, it’s a total bummer. It’s also sad that his ten-year partnership ended.

      • MoHub

        Isn’t she young enough to be his daughter?

        • formerlyAnon

          It’s only a 23-ish year gap.
          Which, unless she is very smart in a way that catches his fancy & she has mild daddy issues, means that it won’t last.

    • SewingSiren

      Hard core.

    • MarissaLG

      She looks very pretty and the dress looks great on her, but that’s really all I have to say about it. To me, that means that this look kind of missed the mark. She should have worn something worth talking about.

    • Constanza Álvarez Espinoza

      I almost can’t see the dress because of the carpet.

    • IraKi

      I hate the hair because it hides some of the details of the dress and it makes it look uneven. Her face looks so soft and pretty it makes me want to take a nap on it (no, I don’t mean anything sexual). The dress, all in all, is cute, it suits her and it flatters her but it is as pank as a night at the opera.

    • Lily

      Stunning girl, wearing a dress the exact color of the carpet.

      She looks pretty, but I barely recognized her. She looks like Scarlett Johansson’s little sister, which is not bad after all.

    • MoHub

      She’s melting into the carpet!

      “I’m melting! I’m melting! What a world!”

      Can her stylist teach Gwyneth Paltrow’s stylist how to do sheer? This has sheer thigh panels too, but they aren’t 14 inches wide…

      • marlie

        And you don’t know all of her “business” because of the sheer panels.

    • annabelle archer

      Why don’t I like this? She is perfectly lovely, but it’s feeling too much like a living, breathing Valentine and less like a sexy siren, which is what she was likely going for.

    • decormaven

      Stylists, pay attention! When a floor-length dress matches the color of the RC, it’s an automatic fail in my book. She’s just a tall column of red with some lace landing strips.

    • VeryClaire

      Red lace and sequins is always going to be ugly. Always. It should just stop now.

    • gdougs

      I’m over the Met Gala at this point..

      • marlie

        There’s no such thing! I love this stuff. :)

        • gdougs

          So do I! Which I think is why I’m so over it; I felt like a lot of the dresses were disappointing and I expected better..

          I blame it on the pressures of Anna Wintour haha

    • commish24

      Not punk. But I want that purse for shopping in crowded Christmas malls.

    • Nancer

      I think she looks amazing. Love the dress, love the fit, and the accessories. I don’t even care that it matches the carpet, it’s beautiful.

    • kaycem

      the met gala was so boring this year.

      • Jane Donuts

        Definitely a huge disappointment.

    • Beardslee


    • MilaXX

      pretty dress, but after seeing Miley it’s a huge letdown.
      Can I also go on record at being disappointed that NO male celebs even made a half hearted attempt? At this point I would take Johnny Depp doing his Keith Richard’s drag.

      • mjude

        agree & THANK YOU for the male celebs comment!

      • formerlyAnon

        I was wondering if there were any. From what I saw, not.

        I saw a photo of Andrew Bevan? (who’s fashion industry I think, but not a celeb, at least not to middle America) in a very printed suit, and some glimpses of guys wearing hats (that might or might have been trying to reference something sort of punk-ish, maybe and landed on post-punk or rockabilly?) and a few in jackets incorporating or made of cheetah print, but nothing riveting. Debbie Harry was photographed with 2 men I didn’t recognize, but who were her contemporaries. One wore a CBGB t-shirt under his suit and the other had a mildly flashy jacket.

        ETA: Oh, I forgot. Somebody, Marc Jacobs, maybe? Or Zac Posen, one of them, came in tennies and a polka dot suit.

        • MilaXX

          Correction it was Marc Jacobs. Tom Ford came with a model.

        • MilaXX

          Bevan looks more club kid than punk, but not a bad effort.

    • crash1212

      Wonder how many times she got her ‘minaudière’ stuck in her lace.

      • 3boysful

        Seriously. I think that’s the “punk” part of this look.

    • carnush

      Looks like everyone thought that a spiky clutch would be ‘punk’ enough.

      • marlie

        Or a spiky belt. Or a spiky headband. But yeah, even those who tried took the easy way out.

    • flamingoNW

      Nice from the back, blah from the front.

    • frannyprof

      No. And I am so bugged that the ladystars think holding a studded clutch somehow makes their look punk. Yes, just a suggestion, etc., but if you’re going to make some sort of assent to the theme, just DO IT!!!! Stop being so half-assed about it! Okay, need to break for lunch.

    • 3boysful

      Well, if I got to go to the Met Gala, and someone made me wear red lace and sequins (stylist evidently thought theme was “brothel”), albeit by Pucci, I sure as hell would’ve insisted they score me some larger carat diamonds in my ears.

    • foodycatAlicia

      Point d’esprit? Is that what we are calling polka dot tulle these days? Anyway, it’s not my favourite addition to a dress.

    • Cameron Turner

      Pretty but it kind of looks like an ice skating outfit….

    • ojosazules

      Tacky dress.

    • Janet B

      Not the right dress for the venue.
      One of the prettiest red lace dresses I’ve seen.

    • formerlyAnon


    • Tracy Walker

      I think she got the draft invitation hyping the bordello theme by mistake … tsk, tsk, Ms. Wintour.

    • Tracy_Flick

      Somewhere on the spectrum between Vegas Showgirl and Best Drag of the Eighties. Dated, overdone, and not in the least bit punk.

    • Corsetmaker

      She’s too conventional looking to make an edgier look work. She was right not to try.

    • Qitkat

      Tacky vs pretty? I’ll go with stunning. Not punk, but a lovely use of red lace. Too bad it matches the carpet.

    • Angelo

      I like her as a brunette. The clutch is killing it. The dress is ok.

    • BrooklynBomber

      couldn’t’a said it any better.

    • Annie Lure

      Too ornate for my taste. Can’t say it addresses the theme.

    • quiltrx

      This is probably the only venue ever where I would proclaim this ‘boring’…but I do.

    • Donna Tabor

      You just know she spent the entire evening untangling those spikes from her dress.

      She looks gorgeous. Too bad there’s not the merest suggestion of punk, once she lays her clutch down.

    • Raanky

      She looks gorgeous, but I feel like there is something slightly off. It took me a second, but I think it’s the color of the dress. I think that red works on most everyone and Amber can wear anything, but having said that, it looks semi-matronly to me despite the shade of red and lace cut outs. I think it’s the combination and if we saw this in a fresher or more bright color, it may have opened her up to one of the better dressed of the night. Right now, it’s pretty, but bleh.

    • drdarke

      It’s not remotely punk, but Amber Heard totally rocks that dress. She looks like The Bad Girl in an incongruously Technicolor film noir – that’s a compliment.

    • Imasewsure

      She looks lovely… another missed opportunity but she is beautiful… Here’s hoping everyone who brought one of those stupid stud purses DID NOT GET A GOODY BAG!! Sick of that boring S already!!

    • akprincess72

      So is EVERYONE doing the side-butt now? Ugh, dislike this trend…

    • jetpackdino

      The dress is okay, the Mall Hair is annoying. She should have just worn it up.

    • kathrineb

      Not ‘punk’ and I don’t like it!
