Met Gala Red Carpet Rundown Part 2

Posted on May 09, 2013

Darlings, if we never see a gown again after this … well, we’d kinda be out of a job, but still. Suffice it to say, we’re OVER IT.

But we’ll see it through, to the bitter end.

 

Ashley Olsen in Vintage Christian Dior

She’s an Olsen twin, which means the styling is, as always, practically non-existent, but we have to admit, that’s a gorgeous dress and she’s having fun with it.

 

 

Claire Danes in Oscar de la Renta

Enh.

No effort.

 

 

 

Emma Watson in Prabal Gurung

There’s been a lot of yakyakyak about how unpunk this punk-themed event was – and we joined in on the complaining ourselves at times. But the theme of the Met Gala is only a suggestion and the lack of punk on the red carpet that night bothers us less than the lack of real over-the-top fashion.

In other words, this is a sharp look, but it’s for a summertime blockbuster film premiere, not the Met gala.

 

 

Emmy Rossum in Donna Karan Atelier

Gorgeous. A little bridal. If this were the Oscars or a film premiere, she’d get a WERQ. For this venue, it’s way too safe.

 

 

January Jones in Chanel Couture

Attagirl. Ramping the bitchface factor up to eleven.

A shame it’s such a half-assed look.

 

 

Jennifer Lawrence in Christian Dior

Pretty but boring.

We remain unconvinced that Dior is the best fit for her.

 

 

Jennifer Lopez in Michael Kors

Typically J Lo. We’re a bit underwhelmed.

 

 

Jessica Alba in Tory Burch

Pretty, but it looks like she has it on backwards.

 

 

Jessica Biel in Giambattista Valli Couture

GO HOME.

PUT SOME EFFORT IN.

COME BACK.

 

 

Kate Beckinsale in Alberta Ferretti

Yawn.

 

 

Kate Mara in Delpozo

It’s edgy, sure. But it’s also hellaciously unflattering.

 

 

Lena Dunham in Erdem

Pretty enough.

Sweetie, you really, really need to stand up straight. You’ll thank us in 30 years.

 

 

Mario Cotillard in Christian Dior

Fucking yawn.

 

 

Mary-Kate Olsen in Vintage Chanel (dress) and Balmain (robe)

ADORE.

No, really. It’s got charisma and character to it. It’s not boring. We’ll take it.

 

 

Minka Kelly in Carolina Herrera

It’s dark and dramatic, with a tiny bit of edge to it. We like.

 

 

Nicholas Hoult in Tom Ford

So adorable that we’re willing to overlook the rampant fit issues.

 

 

Nicole Richie in Topshop

There was a lot of pointing and laughing across the bitchosphere over this look, but honestly? We dig the hell out of it. Regardless of the theme of the evening, the Met Gala is where people are really supposed to GO FOR IT on the red carpet. It’s the one celebrity event where they’re encouraged to try more editorial or runway-inspired looks. Fly your fashion freak flag, in other words.

She looks like a Hunger Games character. And that? Awesome.

 

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in Brunello Cucinelli

That is one sloppy tux, Kingslayer.

 

 

Zooey Deschanel in Tommy Hilfiger

It doesn’t even look like her, and she’s another one who disappoints because she has a flair for funkiness, which could have been welcome in such a sea of boring fashion. Still, this is pretty. We can’t hate.
