We’re arguing about a lot today. But I doubt we’re arguing about this, right? There was no one worse than this. Kate Upton apparently went to Anna Wintour and asked for a ticket, offering to pay her own way in. I hate to say it...but you can tell.They say there model classes, as Sophia Neophitou infamously declared Full Story

Beautiful girls, both. And willing to experiment. The results aren’t necessarily perfect but there is imagination here, there is spark, and if this is any indication, there’s much to look forward to in Kristen Stewart’s collaboration with Balenciaga. LOVE the tank he’s put her in on top but I’m just not sure this particular styling isn’t better suited to a premiere rather than a gala. Full Story

Succeeding where Cameron Diaz couldn’t...Rihanna doesn’t get enough credit for how fashionably astute she is. You expect her to show up here with horns or vagina-riding a surfboard, some kind of crazy, and instead she lets Tom Ford do exactly what Tom Ford does best. Tom Ford owned the Oscars with a white cape for Gwyneth Paltrow. Full Story

Writing “ribs & breasts” just made me hungry. Have been eating clean for days. God I would love a rib. Just one rib.Gwyneth Paltrow gave us ribs last night at the Met Gala with a serving of side breast. I don’t actually mind the side breast. That’s G, you know? G can flaunt a side breast without looking cheap. Full Story

I honestly don’t know why this fringe is still in play. It covers everything. There’s nothing left to see. Some faces... sure. Some faces have some things to hide. I wish I could hide my nose, my droopy eyelid, and the part of my jaw that dips lower on one side than the other. Jessica Biel doesn’t have these problems. Full Story

Did Cameron stay close to Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyonce last night? Did they keep a 3 table separation, minimum, between Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel?Cammie brought her game face though, didn’t she? Look at her face. She looks great in the face. Prettier and fresher than she’s looked in a long time. Full Story

I’m not a fringe fan. That’s partly feng shui and, well, look at Jessica Biel. We’ll get to her in a minute. If there’s one person who can do a fringe though, it’s Marion Cotillard. The difference?Hers is super choppy and short. With hers you can still see all of her face. That face! I suppose that face works with whatever hair you give it. Full Story

Have you read Nicole Krauss’s The History Of Love? It’s such a beautiful, devastating book, you really should if you haven’t already. Anyway, there’s a part near the beginning as we’re being introduced to old Leo Gursky, who seems to finding ways to put off death by redirecting pain to different parts of his body, so as not to burden the already weak parts. Full Story

They probably had to hire extra staff at the venue to move her around and up and down in this Givenchy. I suppose if there’s anyone who can maneuver her way around a dress...You’ve seen Beyonce on tour right? I have been bitching about feathers all day. Why stop here? Get over the feathers already. Let me put it to you this way - feathers are the first thing they knock off, you know? In two days, you can buy it for less than $500. Full Story

Pretty sure we’re spitting at each other we are fighting so hard over this one.You’re all like what the f-ck, right? But go back to the beginning for the word on boring. Boring is much worse than ugly. And besides, is it ugly? Really? I think it’s actually rather pretty. Like the prints at Liberty Full Story

I don’t give a sh-t about Tim Tebow and the Jets are a joke for signing him but I needed to report something and get it out of the way so this is why he’s here. You know that new show The Choice? Click here for a refresher. I’ve been hearing rumours all over the place that he’s one of the four bachelors. Full Story

Very much like this purple mostly because I never thought I’d see her in it. Same goes for the shape of the Prada dress. Again with those goddamn feathers. But here’s where style instinct comes into play. Diane Kruger resists the urge to trick out her hair like full ballerina. Rather, the way it’s been blown out, it’s almost. Full Story

What’s the difference between Mary Kate Olsen and Kirsten Dunst? With MK I feel like she goes out of her way to be Other, so that you can smell her Other from the next room, forcing its way into your room, until you throw your hands up and surrender. Does she actually LIKE the style she’s chosen? It’s debatable. Full Story

If Mary Kate Olsen showed up at the Met Gala and won the majority of the style vote from the masses, in her mind she would have failed. MK isn’t interested in appealing to the PEOPLE.com readership. Sure, I get that. I get that this is a statement, or something: I’m not the baby on Full House anymore. Full Story
