Dear Gossips,

Did you notice how much better so many celebrities looked at the MET Gala AFTER the MET Gala? Best example: Kate Upton.

Check her out in black and white – WITH A CAPE! – as she headed into the Boom Boom Room for the after-party. Now compare this to what she wore at the actual event. Click here for a refresher. Somehow Kate Upton’s become a MET Gala signature moment: what disaster will she end up in next time? I look forward to 2015.

Also, can we please revisit the back of Katie Holmes's head?

It was bad. It was really, really bad at the MET Gala. What Elizabeth Olsen wore at the MET Gala. That could easily have been Worst Dressed. Easily. I think maybe I found it more offensive than Katie Holmes and Kate Upton. Actually, yes. I’m ready to say that. It was. It was more objectionable and offensive than the Kates. Full Story

Second year in a row that Scarlett Johansson skipped the MET Gala. I would have liked to see her there. I wonder if Ryan Reynolds would have showed up if she was. If she did go, chances are she would have been with Dolce&Gabbana. You know who wore Dolce&Gabbana this year? Kate Upton. Full Story

It was confirmed a few days before the MET Gala that Gwyneth Paltrow would not be attending. She had a sh-tty time last year and she’s had a sh-tty personal time lately and, also, the GOOP pop-up shoppe is happening at the Brentwood Country Mart this week. The Brentwood Country Mart is also where she was papped with her kids last week. Full Story

Look, I don’t want to do this, I really don’t. No, Michelle Williams’s Louis Vuitton wasn’t technically worse than Katie Holmes or Kate Upton, but in spirit, it was much more … disappointing. Because you don’t expect much from those other two. Holmes and Upton aren’t on Michelle’s level, not professionally, not sartorially. Full Story

Sorry I had to make a tie. I just can’t decide between these two. Let’s start with Beyonce because I don’t want to get disappeared. Also, on our team we allllll agreed on this. She nailed it. She got it. She GOT IT. Riccardo Tisci wouldn’t dare do to her what he did to Kanye West’s fiancée last year. Full Story

OK. Let’s talk about Lupita. According to my email, it’s about a 50/50 split. Half of you LOATHED her Prada. The other half of you adored it. The loathers were more screechy than adorers, just saying. That’s pretty much how it broken down here at LaineyGossip. Sasha, our stylist, was not down. Full Story

We should all be thanking these two Kates for being at the MET Gala last night. For delivering the vom. Like, what does Anna Wintour have against Kate Upton? Two years ago she had to pay her own way into the party. Last year, she was invited… But then… Wait. Do you need me to remind you? I will remind you. Full Story

Charlize & Sean: MET exact

These two are a mind f-ck. A MIND F-CK. Would you have predicted, yesterday, before the event, that it would be Charlize Theron and Sean Penn arrivng at the MET Gala wearing the purest interpretation of the dress code?!?!? She’s in Dior, predictably, and it’s lovely, naturally, but Sean… Sean Penn wore white tie. Full Story

So many of you emailed and tweeted at me about this last night. The Mr Peanut thing. And several other outlets are on the peanut train. And I decided I’d be lazy and just go with it because Johnny Depp has become a cartoon cliché. So why should I expend any originality on his ass when I could be saving it for someone else? Mr Peanut it is. Full Story

Okay, so ostensibly we’re going to look at Shailene’s dress. Utterly ridiculous of course but, as we spend all our time here on the blog discussing, when you’re 22 is exactly when it’s time for utterly ridiculous. You want to be able to look back and say “what was I thinking?” It shows growth. Full Story

I wait for them, I do. I remember the first time I covered the MET Gala with my friend Lara we lost our minds. And every year, during the MET Gala, we celebrate our anniversary. So maybe my feelings for Gisele and Tom are wrapped into my love for Lara. But there’s also that weird relationship most of us have for these two – it’s ridiculous to look at them and everything they are and have, and at the same time it’s sickening, everything they are and have. Full Story

As IF. If I want to see a tall white guy with his hand all over the ass of his tall white wife, I’d go with Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen. But here we are with Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, their most public carpet ever, at the MET Gala last night, both wearing Gucci, her sponsor. Full Story

Men don’t get much variety with fashion because we tell them that they can’t wear dresses. How boring would it be to have to wear a tuxedo to these events, over and over and over again? If you can play, play. If you’re Neil Patrick Harris, of course you will play. But only if it’s beautifully tailored. Full Story
