Red Carpet Recap: MET Ball 2011

Let's talk turkey. It has been waaaayyy too long since a good red carpet recap, so thank you, MET Gala, for allowing this opportunity. Let's begin, shall we?

The Good

Christina Ricci in Zac Posen - Girlfriend BROUGHT. IT. If there is anyplace that is appropriate to bring a hint of cray-cray, it's the MET Gala, and that's why this simple lil number is my favey fave of the night. It's beautiful and slightly weird, just like Mz. Ricci herself. Buh-nanans.

Brooklyn Decker in Michael Kors - Annnnd then you have the opposite of the spectrum, yet equally pleasing to my ocular orbs. This is Barbie-pink, Michael Kors perfection.

J Lo in Gucci -  I can't believe I like this either, but I do. I'd prolly like it more wivout the foofy shrug, but even that doesn't kill it for me. The color is amazing on her, and I like the intricately-tied bodice.

Anna Wintour in Chanel Haute Couture - Well well welllll - looky there - the Devil apparently also wears Chanel Haute Couture. No matter - I LOVE this dress.

Demi Moore in Prabal Gurung - the GOOD side of Black Swan. Does this woman EVER FRIGGING AGE????

Diane Kruger in Jason Wu - I don't always love what Diane does, but step aside Christian Siriano, cuz this. is. FIERCE.

Ginnifer Goodwin in Topshop - I have seen other people slamming her for wearing Topshop to the MET, but the troof is G-Money looks SMOKIN here, low-rent or not. I am not loving her hurr, but that dress is amazeballs.

Gwyneth Paltrow in Stella McCartney

SJP in McQueen

Rosario Dawson in DVF
I think we have established on several previous occasions that I LOOOOVE a sequined, beaded column dress. My eyeballs do not hate ANY of the above three dresses.

Michelle Williams in Miu Miu - Her style is usually a bit too twee for me, but I am loving the birdyness of this dress. Avianalicious.

Lelee Sobieski in Vionnet - This girl is still around? Huh - who'd have thunk?! Simple. Grecian. Perfection.

The I'm Not So Sure

Iman in Stella McCartney - Well, if anyone can pull off a sequined jumpsuit, it's a woman with only one moniker.

K-Stew in Prouenza Schouler - Meh. Just looks too stiff, too wide, too SOMETHING. Her makeup looks pretty though.

Mary Kate Olson in vintage Givenchy - I love that she is wearing vintage, but wish this was a little more fitted. It just looks like she's playing dress-up in someone's clothing that doesn't fit.
Ashley Olson in vintage Christian Dior Haute Couture - Again, love that she's wearing vintage, and I love the drama of the poufy sleeves, but there is just something off that I can't quite pinpoint.

Eva Mendez in Stella McCartney - I want to love this, I really do. I think the color looks amazing on her, and like the general silhouette, but wish it were a bit closer to her body. It makes her look WAY wider than she is.

The HAIL to the Nah

Christina Hendricks in Carolina Herrera - Woman - GET A STYLIST. Seriously. It's time. I didn't even know Carolina Herrera could make a dress that looked like this. Did she roll in an oil slick before the event? Did she attend a Real Housewives "stomping of the painting" party? Ugh.

Daphne Guinness in Alexander McQueen - Daphne always brings the crazy. She's like a socialite Lady Gaga. I can appreciate a feather as much as the next guy - maybe even more - but this is too much for even me.

Fergie in Marchesa - 1991 called and wants its wedding dress back.

Hailee Steinfeld in Stella McCartney - I do NOT love the mullet dress. The end.

Frieda Pinto in Chanel Haute Couture - This is like the Duckie version of a prom outfit to Molly Ringwald's dress in Pretty In Pink. Not. Loving. Get rid of the tie and we'll talk.




Well, I'd wear TOP SHOP to the Met cuz it's all that I could afford:) Daphne in that feather number...wowza.

How are ya feelin?
