I already know we’re going to fight about this. We might fight about this harder than anything else we fight about all day. Because I get it, you hate the f-ckin’ floral shrug. You’re offended by the floral shrug. It’s not my favourite, no, I’m not going to sit here and defend it, no, but it doesn’t bother me as much as the sh-tness of Kate Hudson’s skanky looking weave. Full Story

Best Met Sateen: Freida Pinto

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 3, 2011 10:03:46 May 3, 2011 10:03:46

You know sateen can be trouble as a rule. At etalk our producers have a no sateen policy when it comes to live events. Especially Michelle. You’ve already heard me too many times complaining about imaginary lumps and bumps. Even here, on Freida Pinto, there are a few. Without the workmanship of Karl’s slaves, it could have been worse. Full Story

Met Chaise: Kristen Stewart

Well, the back is certainly better than the front. To me the zigzag on it though might be a little extra, kinda like crinkle cut fries, and unnecessary with all the business happening in the pattern, but it’s definitely an improvement on the front which is too heavy across the chest, not flattering at all. Full Story

Met Glee-off: Dianna Agron & Lea Michele

How did they both end up in red? They can try to convince me until they’re red in the face that they did it “on purpose” but there is no way I’d believe it. I would however totally buy it if you tell me in two weeks that they’ll have a throwdown about it at work. Who won the red match? I don’t love red dresses ever, but for this battle, I’m taking Agron’s Michael Kors. Full Story

Met Back-Hard Pose-Hard: Renee Zellweger

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 3, 2011 09:09:20 May 3, 2011 09:09:20

As I’ve already noted on previous occasions, it is not a relaxing exercise watching Renee Zellweger posing on a carpet. So much effort is involved. The first time I covered the Costume Institute Gala it was with my friend Lara – hi Lara!!! – and we were obviously jerking off over every single arrival and I remember standing beside Lara as Renee was doing her thing, and afterwards, after she had ducked into the doors, both of unconsciously started rolling our shoulders and turning our necks, as if we needed a massage, just from seeing Renee lock her body into place for the cameras. Full Story

Met Disappointing: Naomi Watts

Jesus. What just happened? I can see the seam on the shoulder because it’s sheer overlay which... gross. As in from the bowels of bad bridal, you know? All of it. From the belt to the cascading bedazzlement and again the no-colourness that seemed to prevail last night, this is not Naomi Watts at her best. Full Story

Except for Daphne Guinness ...

This is a continuation of the thought expressed in the SJP article. About no one really bringing it. But for Daphne Guinness. She’s 43. An artist, an heiress, once married to a Greek shipping tycoon, these are the people who exist on yachts and in castles, who can afford to scoff at the lowly celebrity and her need to hustle even though their own lives are filled with the kind of depravity money is supposed to clean. Full Story

Met Sober: SJP

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 3, 2011 08:21:46 May 3, 2011 08:21:46

I mean sober as in serious, but I can understand why you might think it’s the other way. Her husband however wasn’t ignoring her as her date last night. So there’s that. It was no surprise that Sarah Jessica Parker chose McQueen last night to honour the late designer. Some of her most memorable red carpet appearances were courtesy of McQueen. Full Story

Best Met Black: Leighton Meester

Maybe I’m partial to this because it’s a dress I would totally buy for myself... if I could afford Louis Vuitton. Love it so much. SO MUCH. And on her it’s just so well done. The sleek ponytail, the subdued makeup, the earrings... It’s perfect. But... The shoes. I don’t know about the overkill on the shoes. Full Story

Worst Met Colour: Rashida Jones

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 3, 2011 08:00:23 May 3, 2011 08:00:23

Michelle sent me a note last night when all of us started hitting the wires to see the photos as they we released. Her message was simple: “How can this happen to someone so beautiful?”It’s true. Rashida Jones is beautiful. And she is dressed up in all kinds of bridesmaid purple wrong. Full Story

Met Try: Demi Moore

The Royal Wedding was on Friday. And showing up in a fascinator like this to the Met Gala in New York three days later is kinda like saying, I really, really wanted to be invited but I wasn’t so I’m wearing what I would have worn there instead. How sad. I’m cringing for her now. Not unlike the way I cringed for Jennifer Love Hewitt when she dressed up like Audrey Hepburn and went to Tiffany’s. Full Story
