There’s a lot going on here. It’s like a coronation or something. Doesn’t it seem like every time Beyonce shows up at the MET Gala they have to clear the stairs for her? This is Givenchy. And it’s not necessarily the opulence that I’m not down with but...how the opulence seems to weighing her down. Full Story

Before we get into the romance... The dreaded strapless ball gown, you know? It’s SO deflating. She might say she’s not a fashion girl, but when you’re signed to Dior, you kind of ARE a fashion girl, aren’t you? Both Dior girls were mega underwhelming at the MET Gala. A slight edge to Marion Cotillard, I guess, but it’s far from interesting, with not even a hint of punk. Full Story

MET Safety Pins: Carey Mulligan & Hailee Steinfeld

Carey Mulligan’s dress is Balenciaga. It’s OK. The safety pin there seems like an afterthought, somewhere you might put a bow, but for tonight, why not a safety pin because...punk. I think I might have been more excited about this if it didn’t have the sameness we’ve seen from her over the last two weeks. Full Story

Ummm... What is this? Prada, sure. But, no, really, what is this? Is that, like, a coon-tail dangling off the side of her body there? I know Renee Zellweger is no one’s idea of punk but we can do better than a cocktail dress normally reserved for a photo call, can’t we? At the very least, can we shake out the 1950s hair. Full Story

It’s a lyric in one of her songs. And that was evidently Katy Perry’s inspiration for punk at the MET Gala. As she put it on Twitter: “Tonight for The Met I am channeling the OG queen of PUNK, JOAN of ARC!”  Joan Of Arc by Dolce & Gabbana. Full Story

MET Most Disappointing Part 1: Kirsten Dunst

Duana and I both groaned. Kiki D could have owned this thing, you know? Kiki D, who very rarely dresses for Reese Witherspoon’s PEOPLE Magazine readers, seemed the perfect candidate to take over this red carpet with quirk and individuality and... Cleavage + a F-CKING FEATHER skirt is how she came. Full Story

Worst MET Sisters: Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen

These two. And I’m usually an Olsen apologist. But Ashley totally missed the point here and you’d think Mary-Kate would embrace the punk but instead both of them seemed to be under the impression that the MET Gala theme this year was Shades of the Orient. What’s frustrating is that MK was almost there. Full Story

Best MET sisters: Dakota & Elle Fanning

Both in Rodarte. I like the symmetry of this. It’s like each Mulleavy gets a Fanning. And they’re coordinated too! This is a great sheer panelled dress on Dakota, 19. Because it’s revealing without being risqué. You see how it offers virtually no side-breast? I have to think that that’s a strategic decision. Full Story

She had to, didn’t she? JLO and the Slum Bear were in Miami yesterday. Click here if you missed that post. And I wrote that I hoped they would stay there...even though there would be some enjoyment in seeing Gwyneth and her homies meangirl the sh-t out of that situation but we’d never really be able to watch that back anyway so is it worth it? To endure the Gross? Look at him. Full Story

MET Most Low End: Emma Watson

NO. It seems impossible. And your first instinct is to argue because that’s our Hermione. It’s Emma Watson. She can do Burberry and Rodarte, she can be Chanel and Christopher Kane, and even though Emma is many things and has been described many ways, she’s almost never been called. Full Story

MET Cavalli but not Cavalli: Amanda Seyfried

Duana and I disagree on Amanda Seyfried, the new face of Givenchy, in Givenchy. She’s into it. I thought it was Cavalli. This is how they parade onto yachts in Cannes, the Euro escorts looking for a Russian billionaire. Proof? The back. What do you call it when there’s a small triangle for your bush that’s an excuse for a bikini? This is what’s happening when Seyfried turns around. Full Story

Best MET Eyebrows: Lily Collins

Here’s how you do a bold eyebrow for Punk Night at the MET Gala. Lily already has famously thick eyebrows. And she built around them for the evening. The dress is Moschino. It’s reasonably dark and gothy. Unlike Ginnifer Goodwin, it’s a great accent for what’s happening on her face. Full Story

It’s not the makeup that’s the problem. Click here. You see the difference it makes when the makeup is worn with something complementary? The makeup works there, doesn’t it? It does NOT however work when it’s on top of a Tory Burch dress. Full Story

Duana brought it up: that Kate Mara actively dresses exactly the opposite of her sister. Which must be the reason she went for this heinous baby doll with a terribly matched pair of heels. Come on, really? This is the best Kate Mara could do? No, she's not an Oscar-nominated film star but House Of Cards isn't insignificant either and besides, she was just in Prada Full Story
