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

Elizabeth Olsen has the acting career. But her sisters know the fashion. Clearly she didn’t ask them for their advice. WHAT THE F-CK is happening here? Yes, as many of you have already observed, this is figure skating. And not even now figure skating but 1990s figure skating. It’s also Miu Miu. Full Story

Except he wore a black tie. Which I don’t mind because otherwise it would have been too much of a wash. Victoria Beckham is all about minimalism these days. I almost miss… I might actually miss… This:  Full Story

There was a lot of bullsh-t hair last night. Google Felicity Jones. And I’ll get to Katie Holmes in a minute. But here’s my favourite because I love her and I do love a braid. Check out Emma Stone in Thakoon with Andrew Garfield at their first MET Gala together! Am totally jacking the braid for The Social Full Story

Duana was all over this for the 80s. I’m really, really tempted to imitate this 80s hairstyle on The Social today but I’ve decided to go with someone else. More on that later. So here’s Rihanna, Kristen Stewart’s next best friend by the good will of the Gossip Genie, per my previous post, in cropped white Stella McCartney. Full Story

You know that this is my girl. And it’s been established that she can kinda do whatever she wants, seeing as how she was in the world’s last million movies. But the dressing … I dunno. Or maybe it’s the styling? Last night there was a lot – A LOT – of black and white. Full Story
