The MET Gala Costume Institute Ball, aka: the biggest night in fashion, was held last night in New York City. And in MET Gala style, celebrities, models and designers flocked down the red carpet and up the red carpet stairs in their best, and worst, attempts at getting seen. What’s so particularly fantastic about this event, is people are really proving their style. Who has it and who doesn’t have it. Unlike the Academy Awards, where people often play it safe, we see people really go for it! And of course, when you go for it and take fashion risks…sometimes you miss the mark completely.
This is quite a worst dressed list, as in it’s longer than any of mine through awards season. But at least take pride in knowing no one can call these gals ‘safe’. And that is really what it’s all about it.
*drum roll* And the worst dressed are….
|Hayden Panettiere in Dennis Basso
Someone really needs to help Hayden out! She seems like such a nice sweet girl. I mean, look at her! She is so proud of the gown she ripped off a twelve year old…or pastel Barbie?
|Katie Holmes in Marchesa
HA! And we thought Katie Holmes was the sane one…
|Kirsten Dunst in Rodarte
I like Kirsten Dunst enough that I was reasoning this off the Worst Dressed list. But, I’m sorry, I don’t care who you are…Star Wars fashion is not a good thing outside of a convention. (
|Nicole Richie in Donna Karan AtelierPoor Nicole Richie! She was shipwrecked on her way to the MET Ball! Talk about a trooper for still managing to show up on time.|
|Rita Ora in Donna Karan Atelier
Apparently it wasn’t just Nicole Richie’s high fashion reputation Donna Karan wanted to spit in the face of last night. Rita Ora was next on her victim’s table.
|Maggie Gyllenhaul in Maison Valentino
Maggie Gyllenhaul looks like a cheap walking promo for this season of Mad Men. Proof that even Valentino makes mistakes…
|Zoe Saldana in Michael Kors
I was happy that Zoe opted against a Prabal Gurung for the evening. I wasn’t happy that she opted to wear a bean bag instead. I mean, it’s a lovely patterned bean bag. But, a bean bag nonetheless.
What did you think of last night’s fashion and who topped your worst dressed list? Spill!
