Here I am in a sequined black dress you could easily find at French Connection, my eyes weirded up with black liner, and I’ll call it enough for punk at the MET Gala. Sure... If you’re Kate Moss, fine. If you’re Chloe Sevigny, OK. But if you’re January Jones? Who can’t make a paternity scandal interesting? Let me sit you next to Amber Heard so that you can disappear together. Full Story

Duana and I were discussing Kanye West’s girlfriend’s Givenchy, which I’m convinced was a private joke between Anna Wintour and Riccardo Tisci (I am not buying those pictures, you can see them somewhere else), and she posited that perhaps the only redeeming quality about that dress is that the gloves are built-in seamlessly. Full Story

Let me just say it. Because I feel like this is what they want: To convince us that Amber Heard is the new Scarlett Johansson. Amber Heard is not Scarlett Johansson. Johnny Depp can try as hard as he wants to, but it’s not happening. You can keep selling her to me as a bombshell and I will keep telling you: I am bored. Full Story

Worst MET Try: Jessica Pare

Here’s how Duana described Jessica Pare’s MET Gala look to me over email: “Jessica Pare. Stitches.” It is indeed funny. And it’s supposed to be fun, but not funny. Like, the desired reaction is not to be laughed at. And that’s happening here because while too many went under-punk, Pare ended up TRY Punk. Full Story

MET Beach: Emma Roberts

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

MET Braids: Minka Kelly & Emmy Rossum

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

MET personal style match: Nina Dobrev

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

MET Debutante Mom: Anna Wintour

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

Dear Gossips,

“If you think this has a happy ending, you haven't been paying attention," said a deranged Simon from Misfits to Theon Greyjoy. Is anyone sad about Theon being tortured? Are we supposed to enjoy it? Because I really enjoy it.  Read Full Intro

Been listening to this all day. Sasha was on Dean and me right away this morning about it too. She mentioned that Mimi’s voice is still amazing. I had to be the c-nt bitch to wonder if, um, she could throw this down live. BUT... It’s a GREAT song. In spite of that stupid f-cking hashtag. Full Story
