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

We can’t be friends if you can’t appreciate this. I just keep convulsing in ecstasy every time I see a new picture, a new angle. Like, who even cares about the dress? The dress is fine. I won’t remember it tomorrow. The hair though. The hair is making my hands itch, itching for a pair of scissors, just to try it, I just want to try it, for a day, for a week. Full Story

I’ll take this over Claire Danes’s Zac Posen. And I’ll fight you on that until we’re both broken and still I won’t change my mind. Because even though Claire and Katy Perry both dressed for tricks, at least Katy’s wearing a legitimate garment, and not a f-cking Christmas tree. Full Story

I thought we were over this 4 years ago when she pulled the escape hatch out of Scientology. But Katie Holmes decided to bring back the Tom Bot last night at the MET Gala to go with her hair and her dress, I guess? What is she wearing? Zac Posen. But, actually, Technology Has No Soul. This is when you take the theme way too seriously. Full Story

I am trying so hard to stan my eyes into seeing Michael B Jordan’s short pants in a positive way. Up top, the jacket with gold V? Gorgeous. And the pants, they actually kinda work when he’s walking. Sort of. But when he’s standing still, just posing… I can’t convince myself of it. Full Story

Can you believe Kate Hudson went to the Met Gala? OF COURSE YOU CAN. Kate never misses a party, a chance to smile and show off her really nice physique. She attended the Met Gala in Versace – she’s worn it before. Versace, I mean Full Story

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. It was meant to be bold. It was meant to be forward. If you look closely at the silver shadow, you can see the skill in the application. Full Story
