This year’s Met Gala was once again the best example of what not to wear to your friend’s wedding. The theme of “white tie and decorations” (seriously, who thinks up this shit?) was across the board, relatively easy to follow. The men really seemed to jump on the band wagon with the “white tie” aspect of the theme. And of course the women- oh the women– were decorated to the nines. It was a grand spectacle of extravagance and overflowing discretionary bank accounts.
Middle of the Road
I love a good midi length dress. I do not love the midi length beaded fishnet Kristen Stewart is wearing.
I just want to throw these ladies a shield, sword, and goblet of liquid gold. Maybe they will join forces and become a super group.
Crop Tops and Cut Outs
I am determined to find the appropriate crop top/skirt combination for myself to wear in my ordinary life. It will happen….one day.
This is where all of your bridesmaid and prom dresses aspire to be, yet none ever measure up.
Black White and Hot All Over
These two had major red carpet mojo working. SJP looks like a princess. A smiling, gloved princess. Anna K just look sexy as hell.
Between Charlize and Cara, black and white has never looked so good.
Lil Bo Peep Stunt Doubles
I love Chloe’s look. I really do. Lil Bo Peep just popped in my head for some reason. Naomi looks okay, by Lily and Anna confuse me. I think I am missing the point.
Long Story Short
Elizabeth Olsen looks fantastic and those shoes need to immediately be made into a cheaper/more affordable version that I can purchase at my local TJ Maxx. Lena, no.
The Strangers (ie, I didn’t read the invitation)
Valley of the Deep Vs
Deep Vs and high slits should not be on the same dress. It’s just too much.
Olivia looks fantastic and I am strangely loving Maggie’s look. Something about the combination of her hair color and complexion with the dress pattern works for me.
The Bigger The Better
Oh look, it’s Cinderella!
Best Dressed of the night (aka Hollywood’s Ken and Barbie)
Blake Lively looks like a modern day Veronica Lake. I love every last bit of this look on her. And Ryan Reynolds is definitely working the double Ds-that’s short for “Dashing Debonair”.
