Met Costume Institute Gala 2012

I really had to edit down this post, originally I had 50 dresses to comment on, but that would have been too long for this blog, so I cut out all of the looks that I didn’t feel very strongly about. Here are the best and worst outfits from the ball last night.

I love…

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, anna wintour

Anna Wintour in this Schiaparelli-esque Prada dress. The gold lobser looks amazing. (Not a huge fan of Miuccia’s outfit, but then again, I expect her to be unconventional.)

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, milla jovovich

Milla Jovovich in classic Prada. She looks great!

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, linda evangelista

Linda Evangelista, who looks killer in Prada. In my opinion, the belle of the ball.

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, gwyneth paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow in Prada, although in some shots I saw some side boob, which was not attractive.

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, haider ackermann

that we finally get to see some Haider Ackermann on the red carpet! Worn by the beautiful Constance Jablonski.

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, carey mulligan

Carey Mulligan wearing (surprise, surprise) Prada. Does she ever look bad?

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, givenhy

Rooney Mara looking slick and fabulous in Givenchy.

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, mugler

A bunch of girls in Mugler dresses, whihc re-ignites my hope for the brand (all this Lady Gaga-ness and overhype was making me lose hope in the brand.)

I loathe…

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, anja rubik

Anja Rubik and a very scary leg and hip showing out of this Anthony Vaccarello dress. This could have been stunning, but I didn’t need to know she isn’t wearing a underwear.

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, valentino, sarah jessica parker

Sarah Jessica Parker in a Valentino dress that makes me ashamed about having worn Valentino to get married.

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, marc jacobs

Rachel Feinstein wearing the ugliest accessory from the fall winter 2012 catwalks (Marc Jacobs’ Dr. Seuss hats) and Marc Jacobs being an attention-seeking fool in his Comme des Garcons lace dress. They both look like idiots.

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, mary kate olson

Mary-Kate Olson looking 85 years old in The Row.

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, balenciaga

Kristen Stewart in Balenciaga. This is SUCH a lame choice, surely Balenciaga could have found something prettier for her to wear?

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, jenna lyons

Jenna Lyons wearing J Crew (I presume) that looks sloppy and badly fit.

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, alexander mcqueen

Florence Welch trying to be amazing in Alexander McQueen, but instead just looking like a fool.

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, givenchy

Coco Rocha in vintage Givenchy. Couldn’t Givenchy have stopped this tragedy from happening?

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, Miu Miu

Chloe Sevigny looking like a cheap go-go dancer in Miu Miu.

Met ball, fashion, celebrities, red carpet, evening wear, stella mccartney

Cameron Diaz looking old and totally uncool in Stella McCartney (which is so wrong, because she is supposed to look young and cool.) And of course Stella looks a bit ridiclous, too.

    I love how extreme Mary-Kate looks.  Granny realness!

  • Jasper

     she really wouldn’t have looked that bad if her makeup and hair weren’t … so atrocious. the red gladiator prada dress looks way costumie though… that and it just looked better in leather imo

    Granny realness is not cool in my books.
