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

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
