Nope, this is not an Effie Trinket ensemble, it's Elizabeth Banks in Mary Katrantzou. This is more along the lines of something I would expect January Jones to pull out, but it was a surprise from Elizabeth who has been going uber glam and gorgeous for every red carpet this year. Because this is the Met, I sort of get it, but that still doesn't make this pretty.
Pretty would be Diane Kruger in what may shock you as my favorite dress of the night. I can't stop going back to this photo and loving the blending of casual and formal. Again, with the feathers, but somehow it still captures me. It is also very rare that we see her with long blonde extensions and somehow it makes her even more lovely than usual.
Beyonce also wanted to be daring, but combining feathers with mesh and lace is way too much. This is fug central.
Love Marion Cotillard in Dior. This dress is magical.
Talk about a living Barbie doll! Love Leslie Bibb's over the top glamour in Posen.
Jessica Chastain FIRE YOUR STYLIST ALREADY in LV.
Chloe Sevigny being her weird self in Miu Miu.
Love Rooney Mara in lace Givenchy. She is still her goth self, but with lighter hair and makeup, plus the lace gives this a softer feel. Beautiful!
Kate Bosworth sort of ruined her custom Prada feather dress by only spray tanning her legs. This dress also makes me think of Snuffleupagus.
She's landing on a lot of worst dressed lists, but I loved Lana Del Rey in Joseph Altuzarra, even with the cape. She looks like a movie star. Also loved Ivanka Trump's intricate Peter Pilotto gown. Amy's photobomb is also rad.
I'd love to hear opinions on Gwyneth's dress. I'm pretty sure I don't like it, but I falter on that.
Definitely do not like Kristen Stewart's completely hideous Balenciaga dress. I really think she wants to be the next Chloe Sevigny. Nobody puts this on and thinks "how appropriate for the Met Gala" or "so elegant for fashion's biggest night out!". Claire Danes also disappointed me in a dress by J.Mendel who I almost always love.
