MET Best: Chloe Sevigny

The dress. For the person. It’s exquisite. Yes she needs darker lipstick, but it’s a very small detail in so much that was spectacularly right. And again bitches, we’re not dressing YOU. We’re dressing Chloe Sevigny at the Met Gala in Proenza Schouler with some cheeky Mormon hair, and a high collar, and green see through lace with an exposed bra, the most beautiful back, and weird chunky funk shoes. Full Story

The Girls Club without Kate B

I don’t know where my Gwyneth went. Her name was onthe committee list. Same goes for Cameron Diaz. And both were in New York at the weekend. Some say Gwyneth snuck inside and bypassed the carpet. I can’t see this. Not because she’s not a snotty bitch, but because she would have wanted to give exposure to whoever designed her dress. Full Story

MET Jessicas: Alba & Biel

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 4, 2010 12:38:36 May 4, 2010 12:38:36

Same career, same prospects, pretty much the same dress. Sure they might be different shades, and there’s a neckline variety here and there but really, between the cut and the material, and who they are, there’s nothing that distinguishes the Jessicas Alba and Biel. It’s literally a wash. Full Story

MET Jumpy Claps: Sienna & Jude

I’m the loser who jumpy clapped when the photos started uploading. Of Sienna Miller arriving with Jude Law arm in arm at the Met Gala 5 years after calling off their nuptials post NannyGate. They’ve been dodging it for months. Even though it was established, even though there was no question, Sienna and Jude refused to walk down the street together, refused to talk about each other, refused to throw their relationship back into the public discussion. Full Story

MET Young Steezy: Kristen Stewart

Very controversial. The FUG Girls probably detest it. Most of you probably can’t stand it. Even a few Twi-Hards have emailed already today to say they hated it. Me? I liked the effort very much. I will take this over this (click here Full Story

MET Best Hair: SJP

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 4, 2010 11:36:15 May 4, 2010 11:36:15

She does a hair flower better than anyone else. I want to do a hair flower one day. But mine is so slippery the flower wouldn’t stay. And I’d keep cocking my head to one said and my neck would crick. Fashion, so often, is about suffering. It really really is. Sarah Jessica Parker wore Halston because, like, she “designs” for the line now. Full Story

MET Pain: Renee Zellweger

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 4, 2010 11:21:36 May 4, 2010 11:21:36

Does that hurt? Because it looks like it hurts. To be her. It looks like it hurts a lot to be Renee Zellweger. Some stars, you see them, you feel comfortable, at ease, very relaxed. Other stars, like Renee, as soon as the photo comes up you cringe, there’s an ache in your back, you automatically adjust, maybe rub out a shoulder. Full Story

MET Perfection: Gisele & Tom

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 4, 2010 10:58:55 May 4, 2010 10:58:55

You have to see them in person. It’s CRAZY. The double gorgessity is CRAZY. Having seen them live before, at this event, pre-engagement and babies and loving it up hardcore, I know what it must have been like last night. They are ridiculous. I once walked by a colleague who was flipping through a magazine from the Met Gala in 2008 and of course there was a huge section of the page devoted to Gisele in that pale Versace with Tom on the steps (click here for a refresher Full Story

MET Marion

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 4, 2010 10:36:33 May 4, 2010 10:36:33

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

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 4, 2010 10:22:00 May 4, 2010 10:22:00

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

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 4, 2010 10:13:03 May 4, 2010 10:13:03

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
