Here’s one of the articles that was lost in my bug-eyed fatigue yesterday. It was pre-written overnight and I’m attaching it below as is: Sorry. I can’t sh-t on this dress. It’s crazy. She is crazy in it. What’s underneath there? Anything? Aren’t you into the chain mail? And the one sleeve? If she had to shave her bush, this would have been the dress to do it for, Gwyneth Paltrow. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Apart from JLO Slum Loving down the occasion...

God that was satisfying. The Dress Porn at the Costume Institute Gala was satisfying, wasn’t it? That’s what’s great about Dress Porn -- even when it’s bad, it’s GREAT. Because sometimes hating is more fun anyway, which is a truth that’s only safe to admit in the context of style. So here we are, at the Oscars of Style. An event that takes place in New York. Where, presumably, everyone else at the party “gets” it, and they’re really the only people who matter -- in this conversation -- anyway. So why worry about the wife of an old ass Academy voter who lives in Palm Springs? You have succeeded if the pearl-clutching fans of Reese Witherspoon’s red carpet aesthetic snort in disgust. You have failed if Duana uses the word “mumsy” to describe it.  Read Full Intro

There were so many different documents flying around on my laptop and I’m delirious from not sleeping and I totally blanked on this Florence Welch article that was just sitting there, waiting to be posted. Thanks for the reminder, Erin! Duana was right. Punk became Game Of Thrones theme night at the MET Gala. Full Story

I can hear half of you agreeing, and the other half bitching that she’s an old hag. Come on. This isn’t a Gossip Girl ball, is it? Really, what did you expect from Madonna at the MET Gala Punk Night? Remember this? What do you think she was saying to herself when she put this together? Do you think she was hoping that you’d like it? Of course not. Full Story

Maggie’s one of my regulars. As Duana said, similar to what was noted about Kirsten Dunst -- click here for a refresher -- Maggie could have owned the Punk MET Gala. She has great, eclectic taste. She has a unique, interesting look. She is not normally interested in dressing for approval. Full Story

YASSSSSSSSSS. With an A. YAS. This is Giles Deacon. You think her old friend Lee McQueen would have approved? Please. Those are TARTAN VELVET KNEE-HIGH BOOTS. And we haven’t even started on the headdress yet. It’s ridiculous. She knows it’s ridiculous. It’s supposed to be ridiculous. Full Story

It’s a tie. First -- Anne Hathaway, no Annie here. This is how you come back from pink Prada nipples at the Oscars -- in an exquisite vintage Valentino with strategic sheer side breasting that isn’t at all low classy. And brand new blonde hair. Which totally works on her. Because it ages her. Full Story

I am devastated. This is two years in a row now that Gwyneth Paltrow has under-delivered at the MET Gala. Last year she gave us a preview of Anne Hathaway’s eventual Oscar dress that was supposed to be Valentino but ended up being Prada because of Amanda Seyfried, except in silver. Click here Full Story

Duana hadn’t seen this before she went to bed last night. Her first note to me this morning was: Love the hair, hate the dress. I guess the point of the dress was not to compete with the hair. But I agree. We could have used some personality there. Still... these were the style balls we were hoping to see. Full Story

In Stella McCartney. And before you go clutching your Reese Witherspoon pearls, remember it was Punk Night at the MET Gala. So even though this might not be your flavour, at this event anyway, it’s better than Michelle Williams and Blake Lively and Emily Blunt and Katie Holmes and oh my God, Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson. Full Story

Am totally, totally, totally obsessed with Sienna Miller’s everything at the MET Gala. It is Burberry. It is English. It is...exactly. LOVE how this dress fits a little messy. LOVE the jacket. LOVE the intentional lank-ness of the hair, pulled back on one side, and is that a studded headband? Perfect. Full Story

Mrs Timberlake’s Nose-Ring at the MET

Mrs Timberlake went punk... with a Nose-Ring! How much do you love this so much? Here she is in Giambattista Valli and not Tom Ford. It’s not a bad outfit for the occasion. I quite like the webbed leggings. There’s something... Guns’N’Roses wedding about it all. Intriguingly however, it may not have been the original intended outfit for the occasion. Full Story

I can almost always get down with a cape. And if this were any other event, or even THIS event, and the theme not punk, maybe I would feel differently. It just seems so ... October, and not May, you know? And way too severe to be fun and punk, even with that spiked belt. Cam was dressed by Stella McCartney. Full Story
