Met Gala Red Carpet Rundown, Part 1

Posted on May 08, 2013

Hit it, people who failed to inspire us to write individual posts about them!

 

Amanda Seyfried in Givenchy Couture

It’s gorgeous and dramatic. We can’t help thinking of it as the cauliflower dress.

 

Blake Lively in Gucci Première

Enh. S’alright.

 

 

Chloe Sevigny in Proenza Schouler

BOW DOWN, MOTHERFUCKERS.

We’re too tired to come up with an alter for her at the moment, but suffice it to say, she’s Russian, and she’s pissed.

 

Dakota Fanning in Rodarte

Another Fanning sister in another Rodarte dress we’re surprised to like. Boring styling. Elle might have looked a little cray-cray, with eye makeup that was more Punky Brewster than punk, but at least she went for it.

 

 

Emilia Clarke in Ralph Lauren

Beyond Dullsvile. It is known.

 

 

Julianne Hough in Topshop

This has kind of a fun, “John Hughes movie” sort of vibe to it. She’s Molly Ringwald’s wisecracking best friend.

 

 

Kate Bosworth in Balmain

That’s a hot dress.

 

 

Katie Homes in Calvin Klein

Very elegant; a little on the beachy-bridal side of things.

 

 

Kelly Osbourne in Marc Jacobs

We don’t quite get what she’s going for, but we appreciate that she’s going for it, if that makes any sense.

 

 

Kerry Washington in Vera Wang

Another nicely dramatic tip of the hat to the theme of the event.

 

 

Kirsten Dunst in Louis Vuitton

It’s kind of a weird dress, but it’s striking and it works for her.

 

 

Maggie Gyllenhaal in Calvin Klein

We were all set to bitch about how boring this look is for the Met Gala and then we realized who we’re talking about. Since she’s not dressed like a homeless person or a spinster middle school teacher in 1975, we’ll take it. It’s simple and chic, which is what she should be all about, no matter what the venue is.

 

 

Michelle Williams in Saint Laurent

Enh. Not really feeling it.

 

 

Nina Dobrev in Monique Lhuillier

It’s sort of classic Madonna meets modern high fashion, which means we love it.

 

 

Olivia Wilde in Calvin Klein

We’re yawning so hard we think we might have dislocated our jaws.

 

 

Renee Zellweger in Prada

Oh, for fuck’s sake.

Someone apparently fucked with her and told her it was a Mad Men-themed party.

 

Rita Ora in Thakoon

It’s a cool look, if a little unambitious for the evening.

 

 

Stacy Keibler in Rachel Roy

Hot dress; weird Buck Rogers shoes.

 

Uma Thurman in Zac Posen

SERVING, BITCHES.

Stand back if you can’t handle the fierceness blasting all over you.

 

 

Zachary Quinto in Vivienne Westwood

We’re ambivalent about the outfit, but we just adore the blue Bob’s Big Boy hair.

He looks like a character on Pee-Wee’s Playhouse. Mekka-lekka-hi, Mekka-hiney-ho, Zac!

    Chloe and Uma serving up bitchface for the GODS! Also, Amada Seyfried’s dress looks like The Bodies exhibit in dress form. It’s gonna give me nightmares.

    • http://twitter.com/RaankyRaank Raanky

      Chloe and Uma serve great face! Kerry Washington and Kate Bosworth gave great face too and had my favorite outfits on the list!
      Amanda Seyfried needs to go quilt a couch with Kim Kardashian. seriously.

    • https://twitter.com/Gayer_Than_Thou Gayer Than Thou

      My quibble with Miss Uma here is visible foundation garments. But I can’t decide if, in a weird way, that doesn’t actually make her fiercer: “Yeah, you can see some sort of corset-y thing going on under my dress. You got somethin’ to say about it? Didn’t think so.”

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Josefina-Madariaga-Suárez/100002964685796 Josefina Madariaga Suárez

    Maggie Gyllenhaal shouldn’t be allowed to step in a red carpet unless she’s wearing a bra.

    • http://twitter.com/Athenabast Tina Power

      At the same time, that’s the best she’s looked in AGES.

    • http://twitter.com/MaryClaireMcG Mary McGuire

      Honestly, I love her saggy tits. If you only look at celeb/ model photos you’d think they only come in “perky”. Well, let me tell ya, hers are more like mine then any of the others.

      • Sara L.

        Me too! I love the way she looks here. Yeah, they are saggy, but she still looks fantastic.

      • alyce1213

        I’m thinking she’s not all THAT saggy; she doesn’t have big boobs (although she’s had a baby). It’s the skimpy cut of the top that makes them look so. A little more coverage would have been so much better.

        • anotherkate

          I agree she’s not actually saggy–they just sit low. There’s nothing wrong with that, but then again, there’s nothing wrong with a push-up bra, either.

      • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

        I’m a fan of the natural bust too.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Josefina-Madariaga-Suárez/100002964685796 Josefina Madariaga Suárez

        I haven’t complaint about saggy boobs (because, really, they’re not that saggy on their own); but, combined with the top (which already gives the illusion of saggy boobs), she looks like her boobs are melting. And she makes that mistake very often.

    • mhleta

      It doesn’t matter. I’d give a kidney to eaves drop on her conversations. There’s something so freaking Old Soul Chic about her. She’s like the Algonquin Round Table personified.

      • Sarah

        My cousin’s wife took yoga with her in NY. She’s a regular gal, and nice people.

        • http://twitter.com/starrika starrika

          Yeah, I had a friend who did set stuff for a bunch of movies, and she said the Gyllenhalls were really great to work with, because they acted like real people.

    • sekushinonyanko

      I don’t know what her aversion is to those things but goodness, it has to be more comfortable than double sided tape…

  • Addicted2Glamour

    THIS is the T-LO coverage I love the most. The snappy and succinct. The one-liners. I can only dream of being this clever. You boys really make my day.

    • drdarke

      Well, let’s see:

      - Emilia Clarke’s must have thought “punk” was American for “prom”.
      - Olivia Wilde looks like she got invited at the last moment, and had to find a dress in a hurry.
      - Uma Thurman and Chloe Sevigny serve up Magnificent Bitchface, while Kerry Washington serves up Stuffed Fishface.
      - Rene Zellweger and Maggie Gyllenhaal both look like they’re attending another, far more boring event.
      - Nina Dobrev shows Michelle Williams the right way to showcase a great pair of legs.
      - Is it just me, or is Amanda Seyfried going from the red carpet to perform in THE MIKADO?
      - The bottom half of Kirsten Dunst’s dress is eating the rest of her body.
      - And as for the rest…? Ehh – I got nothing….

      • VicD

        Look at the hands, feet and shoulders – is that Julianne Hough, or Derek?

        • calbear97

          Man that would be an awesome trick. I just looked back and you are so right.

  • http://twitter.com/clubjade Dunc

    Oh, Quinto. Didn’t even notice the blue hair at first, because all I see is hipster Han Solo…

    • Nicholas

      Han Yolo?

      • Yuval Dinoor

        That totally made my day- thanks, guys :)

      • https://twitter.com/Gayer_Than_Thou Gayer Than Thou

        You win.

  • http://www.facebook.com/beautifulmonday Laura V Rizzo

    on the plus side for Renee, her face looks a lot better and less strained than usual. whereas Kate Bosworth got Renee’s hand-me-down pissy face.
    this really is a weird mix. you’d nevah be able to guess the theme.

    • MilaXX

      on the negative side for Renee, it looks plumped full of fillers.

      • jetpackdino

        Yep, I had no idea who it was.

    • Spicytomato1

      Yeah, Kate B’s face stopped me in my tracks. Eek.

      And yeah it is a weird mix indeed.

    • roble ridge

      KBos is so gorgeous, but when I saw her face, I was like, “Oh no. She went for the Botox and it hasn’t settled in yet.”

  • prettybigkitty

    Renee’s real life Bridget Jones moment – wrong theme at the party. Dang foiled again.

  • flamingoNW

    Amanda and Kerry look INCREDIBLE. LOVE. I really don’t like Uma’s look at all.

    Sooooo….what happens at this event besides, you know, the Red Carpet?…

    • imakeart

      Wondering the same thing. Does anything else actually happen? And what did Anna Wintour wear?

      • Spicytomato1

        AW wore a pastel floral gown, if I’m not mistaken. Not punk.

        • Sarah

          It was floral, but not pastel, really, just having a white background. Very simple sheath with short sleeves. Nary a punky bit about it. More Easter, than anything.

      • MilaXX

        There’s a show of some sort. I believe Kanye performed.

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

        Anna looked more like Kim K than she should have, I’ll tell you that.

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

      If there are canapes the ladies wearing gloves will struggle.

  • Janet B

    Julianne needed “tougher” shoes.

  • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

    Loving Ms. Seyfried – darker is so better with her.
    Chloe. Turban. Suck it bitches.
    Kate Bosworth, didn’t we just see this (or nearly this) on Zoe S at her premier? Isn’t that a faux paus for a girl who is basically only known for fashion at this point?
    Katie. Desperately needs to get laid, feeling like a virgin, bless.
    Maggie G I love more with each and every carpet, because The Queen of Goodwill, can be a sexy bitch and she knows we know it.
    Olivia Wilde should be evaluated for depression, that limp hair is a subtle but sure cry for help.
    Uma is most certainly dressed for a Gala, but the tightness is a less than flattering and is detracting from what could be flawlessness.

    • Qitkat

      Love your take on Maggie G.

  • http://twitter.com/VersatileChef The Versatile Chef

    Someone hold Chloe down while I put a little blush on her.

    • Spicytomato1

      Can you add some lip color while you’re at it? Thanks.

    • jetpackdino

      Ouch! She bit me…

  • decormaven

    Passing the collection plate to get Julianne Hough some new gays. That’s a great dress, but her hair and makeup are horrible. If she ever gets all the elements right, I will fall over in a faint.

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      Surely her collection plate was filled rather nicely post split from the wee Seacrest. Frankly, if he had the power to make the Kardashians a worldwide thing, he could have found this girl a some decent style. I have no hope of her ever getting all the elements right.

      • MilaXX

        didn’t she get the house or something?

      • NC_Meg

        I was about to say that if she couldn’t get it right when she was dating Seacrest, she probably never will.

    • Spicytomato1

      Those eyelashes! Frightful.

    • lovelyivy

      I find it inexplicable. She’s young, famous, starting a decent career, and totally naturally gorgeous but just refuses to even TRY to look as good as she can. She needs to talk to Emma Stone’s peeps in the worst way- they have found the secret to making some fairly edgy and modern clothes suit her pretty and sweet blonde looks. It doesn’t always work, but they still come SO much closer than Julianne ever has.

    • VicD

      I thought she was doing her best “Drag Race” here. In fact, isn’t that Derek, and not Julianne?

  • CommentsByKatie

    Yeeees Nina Dobrev! Love it! Spider Woman realness.

    • Lisa Dugan

      She looks fabulous! Love the hair. She really always manages to look fantastic and really wears clothes well.

  • PrunellaV

    Uma: The fierceness! It stings!

  • dickylarue

    They really need to stop feeding Kate Bosworth lemons before hitting the red carpet.

  • JulieTy

    Kate Bosworth looks like a Bratz doll (I hope it’s just a weird camera angle).

    Nina Dobrev’s dress reminds me of my 1956 Barbie’s “In the Spotlight” outfit.

  • erinbinek

    Maggie Gyllenhaal should never, ever be allowed to wear a halter dress. Or anything without a bra. That is all.

  • MilaXX

    Kelly O was another one I expected to bring in who disappointed, Rene Z looks like she’s channeling Joan from MadMen. Thank you Quinto for at least trying.

  • mhleta

    Getting a bit of a Norma Desmond vibe from Uma. Love her bodacious curves, but she her expression looks a bit uptight. I really really really like Stacy Keibler’s outfit (though I still have no clue who she is). The hair, however, is a huge California bummer.

    • bellafigura1

      Stacy Keibler is George Clooney’s woman and she used to be a WWF wrestler! Or something odd enough to make her interesting.

    • Imasewsure

      Absolutely Norma Desmond… she should be holding a long cigarette holder and flicking ashes at all of the “little people out there in dark” Loved this look (and attitude) full stop

  • everest19

    I want Uma to adopt me. ZQ is the epitome of gay pirate.

  • jmorino08

    Uma is ready for her close-up, Mr. DeMille!

  • bellafigura1

    Renee Z., Stacy Keibler and Uma Thurman look all kinds of shoulda-stayed-home absolutely awful.

    • Sarah

      ?? Uma Thurman looks like all kinds of YOU ARE NOT WORTHY TO BE IN MY PRESENCE. So, yeah, she can be there, with her slammin’ body and gorgeous face.

      • bellafigura1

        Well, we’ll have to agree to disagree. Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford in Mommy Dearest.

        • Sarah

          Okay. But Faye Dunaway and Joan Crawford were also gorgeous bitches, in their day.

          • Rand Ortega

            WERD.

  • Sarah

    Dude, I would jump the fence for Uma in that dress. She is the BOSS of OLIVE.

  • Rand Ortega

    ZQ– If the King of Cartoons & Jambi had a baby…
    Kate Bosworth: FINALLY! Somebody in Balmain!! That dress is serious!
    Uma– DAYUM!
    Chloe: Meet Svetlana. Apparently no one at the Gala is aware of her status as the world’s premiere Stilt Ballerina & refuse to let her in…
    Rita Ora & Olivia Wilde are obviously suffering from Wrong Venue Syndrome.
    Renee Zellweger– 1996 called– it wants your popularity back.
    KWash should’ve worn the outfit Vera herself wore to the Gala. Now that was awesome.
    Stacy Keibler looks very uncomfortable. Don’t think it’s just the shoes.
    Nina Dobrev is channeling too much Demi Moore in the Oscar bike shorts.
    MagsG just makes me sad. Though I give her an elbow for trying.
    Once I figure out what Kelly Osborne is wearing, I might have an opinion about it.

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      Your Renee comment made me cackle loudly.

  • http://www.facebook.com/conysoledad Constanza Álvarez Espinoza

    If the theme is “punk”, I’d inmediately go to Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, Alexander McQueen or Thierry Mugler. Really, no brainer.
    And yet so little people actually did it.
    Also, I hate mullet dresses but this is the moment I’d pair them with punk boots.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1594250515 Kim Brightman

    I can’t stand how Stacy’s shoes are so matchy-matchy. And Julianne needs to throw away the eyebrow pencils NOW. The heavy brow is cool on some but she just winds up looking like a guy.

  • Little_Olive

    Sorry for the delay in commenting, I saw Kate Bo and had to go for my mommy.

    All in all, the world inverted: those who you’d expect to absolutely rock the theme were very blah and viceversa.
    Lots of confusing punk with goth.

  • http://twitter.com/DarrenNesbitt Darren Nesbitt

    Chloe looks like she had a Russian Cinderella moment: Her name is Yulia and her fairy god mother got her to the Ball. . . etc. But once her step mother (Angelica Houston of course) sees her she walks up and snatches her wig LITERALLY and sees her wearing her birth mother’s diamond brooch and she rips it from her chest!. . . after all that Yulia was just like, ok.

  • ccinnc

    Bob’s Big Boy hair, hahahahahahaha!

  • JauntyJohn

    Kerry Washington always looks as though she’s about to soar up into The Rapture.

    Uma is… we need a new word, beyond fierce. Kaliesque, perhaps. Like a goddess of empowerment and annihilation. (Thanks, Wikipedia!)

    Mr. Quinto… is sending someone a very private message, I believe.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    Olivia WIlde looks like that chick in the Fifth Element. “Apply the Thermal Bandages. Formal Wear.”

  • e jerry powell

    Bosworth in Balmain. I can’t quite put my finger on what specifically it is, but it bugs.

    In the photos of the two of them together, I was surprised that I was looking more at Kerry Washington that I was at Vera Wang. I don’t know why, but I always expect designers to be better at playing dress-up.

    • Qitkat

      Kerry Washington looks fantabulous. Vera Wang seems to be more dressed up than usual. But Andre Leon Talley as a geisha? words fail me.

      • e jerry powell

        I think that’s one of his Dowager Empress robes. Expensive as hell, too, probably.

  • KayEmWhy

    Nina Dobrev, Lovely an Wicked!

  • http://twitter.com/schmangelo Angelo

    Chloe with the turban…. I can’t.

    • KayEmWhy

      I love the Miss Cleo look on her, she’s looked much worse.

      • http://twitter.com/schmangelo Angelo

        Right you are.

  • http://twitter.com/schmangelo Angelo

    Also, Kate Bosworth shows up in a $27,000 mini dress to an event where everyone else is in gowns. I think that deserves some props.

    • e jerry powell

      I think that’s actually what’s bugging me about it. It’s kind of a gown event, and that’s more of a cocktail dress.

      • http://twitter.com/schmangelo Angelo

        Well isn’t it sort of punky and rebellious to do that?

        • e jerry powell

          You do have a point. I’m thinking more from the standpoint of a formal ball, but they did say “punk,” which is actually kind of difficult to manage in formalwear.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002718877231 Bert Keeter

      Agreed but I loved Giselle’s one shoulder number!

    • tereliz

      Since so many ladies were showing off their legs anyway (mullet gowns, lace leggings, pants with butt capes), she’s making it work. Love me some Balmain, but since it can be a bit tricky to wear in real world situations, I especially love when celebs pull it off.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

    I spy PSY in Blake Lively’s picture.

    I can’t help doing this since someone else posted about making a game of spotting him in another post.

  • KittyPip

    Uma Thurman’s dress reminds me of Vincent’s Miss Universe dress.

  • makeityourself

    There’s Debbie Harry behind Emilia Clarke, who is wearing the most boring dress evah. Seriously, you have got to one uninformed individual to think that a red strapless sweetheart neckline gown is the way to go for this event.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002718877231 Bert Keeter

      Total bridesmaid for $199

  • http://twitter.com/janedonuts Jane Donuts

    Wish you guys had shown the back of the Fanning girl’s dress, because the wings are what made it. Maybe not a huge effort, but unlike her sister, she avoided looking like a clown.

    Have to disagree re: Uma Thurman — she looks like an overdone matron. Yikes. Awful color too.

    Love Kerry Washington’s black leather gloves though. Gorgeous.

    And also love Amanda Seyfried’s Givenchy, even if the print is weird.

  • editrixie

    You know what this event apparently needed? It needed Debbie Harry. Badly.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002718877231 Bert Keeter

      She was there but apparently doesn’t rate anymore, even at a GALA w/a PUNK THEME! Go figure?

      • editrixie

        OK, 1, I can’t believe it’s a reply from Bert – you were so great on PR!

        And 2, wow, she was there but no pics … That’s tragic!

        • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

          I think I saw a glimpse of her in the background of someone’s picture, and whatever she had on was seriously uninspired.

        • formerlyAnon

          Oh, she might show up in one of the later rundown posts. Overall I thought she did very, very well, (and looked good) but then took a lot away from it with exaggerated accessories.

          She’s middle aged now, and not slim. She wore a black dress, the bodice of which was (I thought) pieced together (?) or somehow given the look of a black-on-black argyle type pattern – very clever, very on theme. But then she covered the dress with a black, silver-studded loose suit-type jacket, as women of a certain age and girth are wont to do. She wore studded open-toe shoes that were very much like boots, but not quite, a bit too large silver chains-style jewelry and a headband fascinator that featured a large plastic skull and pretty much ruined the look for me – took it straight into costume or jokey dressing.

          • Corsetmaker

            Now Siouxsie on the other hand still looks amazing and still carries off skin tight Pam Hogg catsuits! She could teach this lot a thing or two.
            Debbie looks pretty damn good for 68 though. It’s a funny thing though, when a theme is who you are then how do you approach it without feeling you’re wearing nothing special? Go over the top perhaps? Madonna was treading a fine line with her outfit after all.

  • MandyM

    Why does Julianne Hough do that to her eyelashes? Maggie Gyllenhaal looks great except for the weird side boobs. I don’t understand why Renee Zellweger suddenly looks like Ivana Trump’s little sister. The last two look like they are wearing costumes from their latest sci-fi movie: Han Solo’s Funk Show Brother Meets Lizard Woman.

  • A Teeth

    I thought Chloe Sevigny was Johnny Weir…

  • quiltrx

    Random comments:
    Nina Dobrev can really wear high fashion, can’t she? I never remember who she is, and go look her up—BUT I almost always really like her clothes. She either has good taste or a great stylist.
    I loved seeing some spunk from Julianne Hough. She’s looked so much better since the breakup, methinks.
    Stacy Kiebler’s dress is awesome and tough-looking.
    Uma looks incredible. And for the first time maybe ever, I like Michelle Williams’ hair. Trying to find the hidden items in Amanda’s print. :)
    And Kelly? I expected more from you!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002718877231 Bert Keeter

    Sorry … Olivia Wilde my fave! Enough of all that other over the top drag!

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      Yay Bert!
      But it’s the Met Gala – go big or go home, no?

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002718877231 Bert Keeter

        :)

  • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

    Michelle Williams and Carey Mulligan are slowly morphing into the same person, huh? (I get them confused sometimes, and this doesn’t help, though MW’s makeup is much better.)
    Uma’s serving up Greta Garbo fabulosity. If you’re not going to be on-theme, you better be fan-fucking-tastic.
    I love Nina Dobrev’s ensemble for being both fab and on-point.
    Emilia Clarke should have pulled something from her character’s Dothraki wardrobe. That would have been more punk in attitude, even if not in style.
    I’m covetous of Kate Bosworth’s dress and I want it. I don’t know about that belt thing, though.
    Also, Katie Holme’s dress is what I would have recommended for Kim Kardashian. I know it’s a cliche to put a pregnant women in voluminous goddess dresses (I recall TLo saying that Heidi has two looks – the classic TSS and the fertility goddess awash in fabric (paraphrased)) but Kim should stay safe until she figures out how to dress her new temporary body.

    • Qitkat

      Good call re Katie Holmes’ dress for Kim K. She would have looked classy and beautiful in that.

  • MzzPants

    Uma for the WIN!

  • http://www.pinkraygun.com/ Lisa

    You say “weird Buck Rogers shoes” like that’s a bad thing.

  • melissaisasnob

    Kerry Washington always looks like she is facing the firing squad.

  • Jecca2244

    Olivia’s dress is selling on Moda Operandi for TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS.

  • formerlyAnon

    CHLOE! CHLOE! CHLOE!
    Don’t know where the turban came from, but she nailed the “not afraid to be ugly” ethos. She’s in my top 5, and by faaar the best of this lot.

    Afterthought: Pee-Wee’s Playhouse is perfect for Mr. Quinto!

  • Imasewsure

    Bob’s Big Boy hair!!! Hilarious!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/candice.booth.79 Candice Booth

    I adore Dakota’s dress. Uma’s face looks like a mask. Rita looks like a goddess even though it’s not the right venue. Did Kerri pose like that on purpose? Kate Bosworth is so young I don’t understand the need for Botox.

  • Imasewsure

    Love crazy Chloe… took one look and thought … Maria Ouspenskaya realness!! Cue Lon Chaney Jr. and a full moon…

  • Jan de la Rosa

    Amanda’s dress looks made out of portobello mushrooms. I saw Uma’s photo and z snapped away like crazy. That origami dress of hers! Serving!

  • http://marshmallowjane.com/ marshmallowjane

    I love Maggie. She needs a hairstylist.
    Chloe looks hot.
    Rita, Nina and Michelle look good.
    This is the best Michelle has looked EVER, IMO. I’m so glad she got rid of that plain hairdo. She looked straight from the Midwest.
    I love Kerry but she missed the boat a little bit.
    The others are disappointing. Julianne Hough doesn’t look good. Maybe it’s the light or her makeup.

  • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

    I love Kerry Washington’s whole look.

    Here’s a thought… Maggie and Gwynnie can have a girls day out and go bra shopping together.

    Nina Dobrev (Nina Dobrev’s people) read the memo. LOVE this.

    Uma Thurman was another favorite for the night.

  • Kate

    Of them all, Kelly O worked the punk vibe best.

    This event really brought out the weirdness in some of the guests. Uma Thurman looks like a scary pregnant Disney witch, and not in a good way. I am so over Stacy Keibler that I don’t give a shit what she wears, but that hair is not to be believed. She has tried several new looks recently. I’m getting an inkling that she and George have just about reached the end of their arrangement. I like Michelle Williams’ makeup here. She looks more interesting than usual, which doesn’t necessarily mean that she looks very interesting at all. Kirsten Dunst has got herself some perky little boobs, and I like her dress. And Chloe Sevigny. What would cause a woman to go out in public looking like that?

    Maggie Gyllenhaal looks fabulous. That’s two in a row for her.

    i dont understand why people didnt embrace the theme more. punk + designer clothes + pro hair and makeup = you could have done almost anything you wanted, its like the ultimate halloween, but your costume cost like 39520982 dollars!

    Why was this the most underwhelming Met Ball ever???

  • Corsetmaker

    This whole thing reminds me of taking friends to alternative clubs when I was a bit younger and how their attempt to fit in with a random black top and little extra eyeliner never quite worked. Or boy band fans dressing up as goths for halloween.

    These are mostly people who would run screaming from the room if confronted with anything heavier than the latest X-Factor offering, and I’d wager that goes for most of the stylists too. Many of these people are very conservative dressers and their idea of adventurous clothes usually means a colour or a bit of extra bling. To approach the theme with anything like the approach many of us would like to see would mean going to Westwood, Gaultier, Mugler or less well known names like Ziad Ghanem. But I begin to wonder if some of the usual red carpet stylists even have the phone numbers! Besides that look doesn’t go with fake tan and beach blonde hair. And don’t start me on the make-up artists! Nobody is expecting a red carpet full of literal Siouxsie clones, but the lack of adventure and creativity is disappointing.

    And.. Paloma Faith!

    Ooh, Uma Thurman looks like a more sophisticated Poison Ivy in that dress. Not punk but I love it! It may not be dramatic enough for the Met gala, but I think a Mad Men theme would be wonderful, especially next year during its last season.

    • lobsterlen

      Wait what? Next year is the last season of Mad Men?

      • Angela_the_Librarian

        Yeah, unless something changes Matt Weiner announced that season 7 will be the last. I assume that he didn’t want to take the story too far into the 70′s.

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    Great comments, Guys. UMA RULES them all!!!

  • carnush

    I will love Uma for ever and ever, amen.

  • Stubenville

    Obviously Anna Wintour has been kidnapped if Kelly Osbourne managed to get into the Met Ball.

  • lobsterlen

    Chloe is not Russian here. Chloe is channeling her most favored and revered muse Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale. The turban, bathing suit and lace/mesh coverup. Its obvious. I bet you made the real Chloe cry that you didn’t see it.

  • Ms_Flyover

    Where is Debby Harry?

    LOVE Michelle Williams Clutch.

  • janierainie

    Wow Uma looks like she probably has Snow White tied up in the Limo.

    Blake Lively dressed beautifully, just not appropriately. but damn, bitch makes me feel the need to do a million push ups. girl is FIT.

  • tereliz

    Nina Dobrev FTW! Kerry and Chloe can fight for second place. I’m not actually sure who will win that one. The Sev is crazy but Kerry looks like a scrapper.

  • SewingSiren

    Out of this group Rita Ora looks about the best.

    Next to Vivienne Westwood, Balmain and Rodarte seemed to me like no-brainers for a Punk-themed gala. Even though their aesthetics are not quite punk, both brands have an edge that could be turned into punk and rock. Funny how they didn’t seem to be the first choices for most of the guests.

  • pop_top

    Blake Lively kind of looks like she’s in the middle of being engulfed.
    Nina Dobrev is giving me everything. She looks fabulous.
    I love Stacy Keibler’s and Kate Bosworth’s minis. Stacy tried it with the hair though.

  • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

    Zach, love the loafers the most! Nina, why the tragic mermaid hair with that killer dress? Chloe, never change! Maggie and Julianne, competing for best scrolldown? Upside down world is right!

    Dakota and that Twilight chick (too lazy to Google, having a brain fart) missed an opportunity to reunite, a la The Runaways! Perfect venue.

  • Victoria Anzalone

    Love Michelle Williams’ look head to toe. LOVE LOVE LOVE Nina Dobrev FULL STOP.

    Meanwhile, “Hi I’m Zachary Quinto and I’ll be your server this evening…”

    * Kate Bosworth’s dress is my favorite! Her hair color is fantastic, too.
    * Uma Thurman looks like a Disney villain, and I mean that in the best way humanly possible.
    * Renee Zellweger looks like she’s been raiding the closet of an aging political wife. That dress adds about 20 years.

    Chloe Sevigny looking pissed someone told her it was a Mafia Grandmas theme

    • judybrowni

      Funny, with that turban, I got the vibe: Gloria Swanson at the insane asylum prom.

  • Patricia Gillett

    I have had alls I can stand of the pursed lip/duckface look and I can’t stands no more. Learn how to effing smile or get off the RC!!!! Looking at you, Kate Bosworth and Kirsten Dunst!

  • http://www.facebook.com/aboutelle Ashleigh Boutelle

    I wish I could have dressed Zachary…those bloody opera slippers are horrific

  • bitterk

    Never a dull moment with that Chloe

    Uma, Uma, Um-mow-wow! Helluva look. I love that everyone around her seems to standing back and giving her the space she so obviously deserves. Fabulous!

  • kathrineb

    Yay for Uma’s look! So striking!

  • megohd

    Renee Zellweger may not be dressed for the occasion, but she looks HUMAN and sober, for a change.

    I generally loathe mullet dresses and am not a fan of Michelle Williams, but I actually like her look. I think it’s the hair that’s selling it for me.

    Katie Holmes is at the wrong event, but boy is she gorgeous!

  • librarygrrl64

    Leave it to Chloe to hear “punk” and translate it to “Little Edie.” :-D

  • NiseiShonagon

    Kelly looks like she’s modeling from the Vivienne Westwood Mommy ‘n Me collection. (And yes, that is meant as a compliment.)
