MET Marion

You’ll fight me on this one, I know it. It’s my Marion Cotillard. So of course she’s in Dior and it’s gorgeous and stunning and flawless because she is gorgeous and stunning and flawless. But... it’s a little safe. It would work at the palais in Cannes, it would work at the Kodak, it would definitely work at the Globes, but at the Costume Institute Gala, when she above almost all others can do whatever she wants, it’s a little. Full Story

MET Dark Spirits: Maggie Gyllenhaal

Points for trying something different. And only Maggie G could have pulled it off. But no points for scaring me. Maybe if it was a different colour. But the way it is now, with her face so severe, and the fabric like storm clouds gathered around her legs, like there are spells swirling in those skirts, and that black leather sash an eventual noose for an eventual victim, I imagine that if you were to walk past it would whisper at you, some horrible voice sliding up your neck telling you exactly when and where you’re going to die. Full Story

MET Tired: Nicole Richie

Over it. The Disco Earth Mother Boho. Over it. Am over seeing Nicole Richie in a loose flowy muu. She calls it the Winter Kate. I call it a f-cking rut. Even if it is Marc Jacobs. And there’s too much hair happening. It’s too heavy. It’s weighing down her housecoat. She doesn’t look quite like a grownup. Full Story

MET Cinderellas: Jennifer Lopez & Anne Hathaway

Am surprised Anne Hathaway was able to leave the event unscathed, without a knife wound in her side, a gift from Jennifer Lopez for essentially wearing the same dress. It was the same dress. Different designers but it was the same dress. Cinderella dress. Princess dress. Cotillion dress. The same dress. Full Story

MET Most Dashing: Joshua Jackson

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 4, 2010 09:38:21 May 4, 2010 09:38:21

How f-cking cute is Joshua Jackson? SO cute. And he’s so great at this event, year after year. Always. I spoke to him the first time he attended with Diane Kruger and he had to wait for her while she posed and he told me about how he pretty much had no choice about what he wore and it was pure confidence the way he said it like, why would I know what to wear to the Costume Institute Gala? Of course my lady dressed me. Full Story

MET White-Off: Kiki vs Swifty

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 4, 2010 09:20:33 May 4, 2010 09:20:33

Kiki. I’m with Kiki. You? Kirsten Dunst is wearing Rodarte for Gap. Compared to Emma Watson, as far as a one shoulder goes, Kiki’s is so much more interesting, especially the back. Quirky but still elegant, with personality, and totally suited to the night particularly paired with those gran boots. Full Story

MET Let Down: Emma Watson

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 4, 2010 08:58:17 May 4, 2010 08:58:17

You’re shouting at me, I am wincing, and I am sorry. Because as you know, I love her so much. Sometimes in a way that might be considered off side. Like... I feel like she’s ours a little. The way we watched her grow, how proud we are of her life decisions (school!), and how gracefully she’s eased into adulthood – Emma is our girl. Full Story

MET Ventriloquist: Christina Hendricks

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 4, 2010 08:37:57 May 4, 2010 08:37:57

It’s that f-cking thing on her shoulder that’s the same colour as her hair so when I first starting going through the images and pulled this up I recoiled in horror because I actually thought Phoebe Price tried to crash the event with a ventriloquist dummy. It is NEVER A COMPLIMENT if I’m mistaking you for Phoebe Price. Full Story

MET Lavender Ass: Rosario Dawson & Carey Mulligan

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 4, 2010 08:27:58 May 4, 2010 08:27:58

Pink, lavender, whatever... it’s ... objectionable. Like really, really insulting. I mean, that colour, it should be outlawed, with few exceptions, for people over 6, 7 max. And those weird tit cups. And that black bow. And that goddamn feather ruffle skirt. Anna please put a ban on this sh-t. Full Story

MET Pants: Tina Fey

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 4, 2010 08:07:37 May 4, 2010 08:07:37

Duana emailed while the photos were being loaded last night and told me to get online so we could argue about the dress porn. But the game was on. And I couldn’t disturb the energy. So we emailed instead. But we only ended up discussing Tina Fey. Duana thought her makeup was terrible. I thought it suited the night. Full Story

MET Powder Bluebell Sh-t: Vera Farmiga

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 4, 2010 07:55:18 May 4, 2010 07:55:18

Her dress at the Oscars was rather unpopular. And now this at the Costume Institute Gala. So ... is it official? To declare that Vera Farmiga has bad taste? Because... Like... Even if you don’t mind the colour (to me it’s offensive), and even if you can forgive those bo peep bonnet sleeves (they’re embarrassing), and even if you can overlook those tacky aunt curtains hanging off the bottom (come into my saloon!), how can you possibly justify that limp ass ribbon dangling between her breasts? It doesn’t look properly tied. Full Story
