Fashion Roundup: The Met Gala 2012

Submitted by on May 8, 2012 – 12:45 am 4 Comments

On Monday night, some of the biggest stars in Hollywood and the fashion world attended the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute gala in their fanciest duds. Some of the outfits were duds in another sense of the word, but there were also beautiful, edgy gowns on display. Check out my slide show below for a few highlights, then let me know what you think in the comments!

  • Your Mary Kate comment nearly made me spew water all over this work laptop. While my students take a final. BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBAAHAHAHAHAHAHA! She looks so so so terrible and old and sickly. Is there something wrong with her I don’t know about?

    The only one I really liked was Rose with Radcliffe. I don’t know who she is, but that dress looked beautiful on her.

    Gwyneth looked like she should be on the Jetsons. Don’t get me started on bootyonce or twilight vampire chickadee.

  • Lauren says:

    Oh, E, after our discussion last night, THIS is where I’m supposed to comment? You know how fashion-backwards I am, and yes, that is figuratively and literally. I mean, how’s a girl to tell which way to put on some of this crap these days? Cover the boobs, the cheeks hang out. It’s all a nightmarish cornucopia of uncovered parts and bat-wings. Give me my lounge pants!

  • Eddy says:

    Is “vomitingly” a real word? I like it. I hope it catches on.
    “… AND carpet?…” Really? You went there? I think that you are the edgy one here.

  • Reese? I’m thinking those freaky spots were nicotine patches.

    Beyonce and Roony looked like they escaped from a Nightmare of the Spiders B movie. And the webs were stiiiiicky.

    You are so dead on about poor Mary Kate. They should never have let her out of the attic.

    You’re right about the belt–otherwise Amy Adams is truly glamourous and cute as a bug.

    Gwyneth? My eyes! My eyes! What *is* it about that woman that makes me want to bitch slap her every time I see her. I think she’s really a hologram.

    Anna Wintour has jumped…the lobster. Just because she can get away with it doesn’t mean she should be allowed to.

    And who was that woman dressed like an Emmy statue? She definitely was on the wrong coast.

    You win the Internets today w/ the Transformers comment. Perfection!
