Another example of what Duana called Game Of Thrones as punk at the MET Gala. It’s less punk than it is medieval bride, and perhaps what Cersei Lannister will wear when she marries Loras Tyrell, if that wedding ever happens, and maybe it’s a Canadian thing but it’s always a good day when Linda Evangelista shows up somewhere. Full Story

I don’t hate it. Not at all. It’s far from the worst of the night. Or the most boring. Or the most Try. It’s not a mega standout but that’s OK too. It wouldn’t have been possible for Stacy Keibler, without George Clooney, to rise to the top anyway. But middle of the pack is about right. Full Story

Last year, Kate Upton, unlike most other models, had to offer to pay her way into the MET Gala. Click here for a refresher. This year, Oh My God, look what happened to her. There is no snark here. There is no pleasure. There is only sympathy, truly. Full Story

If it has to be taffeta with asymmetrical hem, then let Vivienne Westwood have at ‘er. And put it on Christina Ricci who always comes to play at the MET Gala. Finally, someone who showed up. Pick something Reese Witherspoon would never be offered. Make sure the construction matches the imagination. Full Story

Red Taffeta. At the MET Gala. With an asymmetrical hem. It’s offensive. If you have to do taffeta, you do it like Christina Ricci -- more on her later. Red Taffeta you save for Julie Bowen, at the Emmy Awards. Or, you know, for a 60th wedding anniversary. I can’t even with the gathering of the fabric there at the waist. Full Story

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

Kerry Washington’s MET gloves

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
