Kate Hudson’s gold dress was worn like a dishrag. And then there’s a gold dress the way Fan Bingbing wears a gold dress. By covering it with a cape. I wish I could show you more photos of her but photographers at these events tend to ignore international stars. But you really don’t need a lot of angles to appreciate that Bingbing understands that the MET Gala is about theatre. Full Story

As I noted in the open, gold, red, and green, these are the favoured Chinese colours. There was a lot of gold, red, and green at the MET Gala. Some of it done well, with just the right amount of Chinese cheesy, and some of it… well… Kate Hudson in Michael Kors was a mess. The problem is the hair. Full Story

I love what’s happening underneath Dwyane Wade’s jacket. And I apologise in advance for mixing up my references but it reminds me of an old European army uniform; it reminds me of Les Miserables. Exciting, right? Because men’s fashion doesn’t often surprise you. This is flair. Full Story

Please note that yellow is not gold. On this night, it doesn’t substitute for gold. Here’s what Duana texted me about Kristen Wiig’s dress: Also f-ck off, Kristen Wiig. Stop it now. And my response: That yellow made me ANGRY. Angry because … Prabal Gurung isn’t usually this unremarkable. Full Story

I’ve seen Carina Lau in way more over the top dresses. But you can’t do a one-armed cape and get too crazy everywhere else. Carina turns 50 at the end of this year. 50! With a (Molly Shannon) kick! Like I always say, the doctors over in Asia know what they’re doing, man, because she’s not the only one. Full Story

I’m still not over the fact that Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen weren’t there. Instead we got Derek Jeter and Hannah Davis. OK. I can work with this. Because… I can’t remember the last time Derek Jeter walked a red carpet with a girlfriend. And he never, ever walked the MET Gala with Minka Kelly. Full Story

Not gonna rage too hard on Emma Roberts for the dumbass chopsticks in her hair. You know why? Her dress is punishment enough. She’s like the Kate Upton of 2015. You remember Kate Upton’s appearances at the MET Gala, don’t you? They’re tragic. When Kate Upton shows up at the MET Gala, she’s almost always in a “here just wear this” dress. Full Story

Their daughter will be seen in the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road, due out in a couple of weeks. So they decided to come together, the entire family. Although, generous, understanding parents that they are, Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz were OK with not posing with Zoe on the carpet. They walked together instead. Full Story

Sexiest couple on the Met Gala red carpet last night. Yes, I know the Clooneys attended, as did Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet (!) but no pair out-smouldered Rose and Bobby, both in bordeaux Calvin Klein. The pick might be basic, but you can't deny their physical chemistry. It's intoxicating. Full Story

Some years, the theme doesn’t work for Anna Wintour. You remember when it was punk? She just couldn’t. China 2015 however was exactly where Anna lives. Chanel, always, at the MET for Anna Wintour. And this time she played the part of Chanel Tai Tai. Anna’s basically wearing the Tai Tai uniform. Full Story
