Dear Gossips,

I hate it when people call it the “MET Ball”. It’s probably an irrational gripe. But we all have our personal style guides. And for me, the right way to say it is the MET Gala. And whenever I hear it referred to as the “MET Ball” my inner eyes roll, the way they roll when someone uses “anyways” instead of “anyway”.  Read Full Intro

A few hours before the MET Gala, E! broke the news that Kerry Washington and her husband, Nnamdi Asomugha, are expecting their second child. This seems to be happening a lot. The low rank tabloids report that divorce is imminent. And then a baby happens. Full Story

This pains me in so many ways. First, because I really enjoy Emma Watson, both as a celebrity and just as an all-around person. Second, I LOVE pants on the red carpet. I think pants are majorly underserved at these type of events. Emma has been wearing pants, often winningly, for years. Sure she likes to throw a train or skirt overtop, like she did the other night at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Full Story

So confused because Kristen Stewart should have been really good at this, should have been a standout at the MET Gala. And from the neck up, we were there. I like the hair and the makeup.

I don’t mind the spare. On a night when everyone was overdosing on blinding metals, I quite appreciated the stripped down, no-fuss vibe of Michelle Williams’s Louis Vuitton. This outfit is uncomplicated. But it’s beautifully crafted. It’s a machine that does one thing. I’m good with that. Full Story

Rest assured: when you invite Jessica Chastain to a party, there will be dancing. ... lots and lots of dancing. This year, she danced in peacock blue Prada and finally broke out of her Jessica Rabbit Givenchy rut that Lainey finds herself begrudgingly writing about all too often Full Story
