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

MET Doppelganger: Elizabeth Banks

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 4, 2010 07:39:14 May 4, 2010 07:39:14

Some might say the tights are overkill. From the side she actually looks like she’s carrying an animal rug or a portable resting mat. Love it or hate it though, this is not Elizabeth Banks’s biggest problem. Did you open the photos and think for a second that she was Sienna Miller? Because Sienna would have worn this only better, and Sienna’s hair would have been styled like this only better, and her eyes would have been smudged black too only better, and while Elizabeth Banks certainly deserves some props for not going safe and conservative, at the same time if the result is being mistaken for the lesser version of someone else, I’m pretty sure that doesn’t qualify as a win either. Full Story

MET Sit DOWN: Jessica Szohr

Someone actually posed harder than Renee Zellweger last night, especially when you consider who she actually is. Annoying, barely relevant Vanessa on Gossip Girl showed up at the Met Gala with a lot of Try on her face and a wannabe Jennifer Lopez expression leaving us with two questions: Who? And Why Is? Look at this bitch go for it. Full Story

MET MIA

Wait before you hate. Because it’s M.I.A. What else did you expect her to wear? And, really, WHO else did you expect her to wear. M.I.A. and Alexander Wang make sense. M.I.A. in something elegant and classic and pretty makes no f-cking sense. Why would you want to shove M.I.A. into something pedestrian and turn her into something else? So it’s hardly a controversial dress. Full Story

MET garden dress and her beautiful boyfriend

Or is it fiancé now? All these engagements and bit players, who can keep track? Rachel Bilson also wore LV. I like it ok... but do I like it for night? Do you like it for night? Did you like it for last night? I liked him better last night. Hayden Christensen is great in a tux, and so much better than the rumply suit he wore last time Full Story

MET Midnight Blue: Oprah > Abbie

The Mighty looked great. She was the host, of course, and she chose Oscar de la Renta, and for her, he was perfect. A dress that apparently took 4 people over 250 hours to finish, and it really did fit her beautifully, so flattering, and the construction is magnificent and you can tell she felt magnificent and the styling, the hair, the makeup. Full Story

The Costume Institute Gala 2010

We will fight. We will be fighting a LOT. Duana and I fought a little over email yesterday about Tina Fey. More on this later. Fashion, obviously, is subjective. We will not agree on everything. We probably won’t agree on much. But remember when you’re yelling at me that this is the Met Gala. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Our niece Veronica received her First Communion yesterday. She was a superstar. As you can imagine, it was family day, more so than usual, at church. Jacek and I spent part of the service counting Biebers. Every boy aged 10 – 14 was workin’ the Bieber forward sweep, even our own nephew Oliver who is 11.  Read Full Intro

At Balthazar without Balthazar

How long has it been? Almost a year? Since Sienna Miller finally quit Balthazar Getty? There was a DJ on a boat after that. Maybe a random hook up or two, it’s so hard to keep track when it comes to Sienna but no matter now because she’s back with Jude and at her best, and spotted today in New York at Balthazar enjoying the afternoon before getting ready for tonight’s Costume Institute Gala. Full Story
