What are we doing here? Is this a modified Vanessa Hudgens Coachella outfit? Vanessa Hudgens would wear this to the beach. If someone offers you a dress, and someone else describes it as “Vanessa Hudgens beach wear”, this is not a choice for the MET Gala. And certainly not for the MET Gala on Punk Night. Full Story

There were a LOT of braids at the MET Gala last night. As Duana pointed out, it’s like they all think the Khaleesi and Cersei Lannister’s hair counts as punk on its own. I can get down with the braid as part of a punk outfit, and you know, I’ve almost never hated a braid, but it doesn’t quite elevate when it’s matched with a purple very safe Carolina Herrera gown (are her breasts too low?) and an equally safe, horribly unimaginative Donna Karan. Full Story

As you know, my complaint about Nina Dobrev -- who I adore -- has always been that her aesthetic is a little too... Eastern Bloc figure skater. Think ... Katerina Witt. Right? Finally a theme and an event that suits her personal style. This is exactly right. A little tacky, but sassy -- which kinda defined the 80s, so why not a throwback to Demi Moore at the Oscars in 1989? On this night it works, although, ahem, it also says everything about what I think of Monique L’huillier. Full Story

Anna Wintour wore floral Chanel. And ...no punk. I mean, as the boss lady of the show, this is super weak. And it’s not like she’s never been game. After all, at the Super Heroes themed MET Gala a few years ago, she also wore Chanel with weird animal horns on her hips. That time she brought it. Full Story
