Okay, if we are being honest, uploading all these pictures gave me legitimate anxiety. But it's worth it because I LOVE the Met Ball. People keep saying it's like the "Oscars of fashion." I agree, but you know I love the Oscars just a little bit more because with the Oscars I get two of my favorite things: movies AND fashion. Anyway, some of my favorite models and actresses came out to the "Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations" Costume Institute Gala. Due to the fact that Prada was involved in the event, many guests wore the designer, which I appreciate. (Also, I thought I'd add that I said all this witty stuff and then I posted this and found out that it didn't save. IT DIDN'T SAVE, YOU GUYS. I almost pulled out my hair. Dead serious.)
I hate that I love Ashley Greene's Donna Karan gown. It fits her perfectly, which makes sense because it's custom, but it's gorgeous. Can I get married in this? I have SO many wedding gown options, but no fiance. That's normal, right?
Yep, I love Lea Michele's Diane Von Furstenberg gown. Yes, she has worn blue sequins previously, but that was a) awhile ago and b) a long sleeve gown, so I am not counting it. Also, her makeup and hair is stunning.
Gosh. My heart is also breaking over Jessica Chastain. Her makeup is not great and her dress is wrinkled and looks unfinished. She was doing SO well, you guys. This Louis Vuitton dress is just all wrong and that makes me really sad. My friend said this is what unconditional love feels like and I think she's right. Unfortunately.
Oh good heavens. Someone needs to help Greta Gerwig. Clearly she is having some issues. First off, this Prabal Gurung dress is very unflattering. And her pose is really not helping the situation. Now, I have not been to any fancy red carpet events, but I know for a fact that I would practice my pose in the mirror with my gay guy friends/makeup artists/hair stylists before I left for the event. Isn't that what everyone does?
So, Beyonce wore Givenchy and I did not like it. That's all.
I have said this before but I will NEVER understand anything Chloe Sevigny is/does/says. This Miu Miu dress is beyond. And not in a good way. I hate it. Also, what is her hair? Who told her "Oh, Chloe. This is a great look on you."? No one told her that.
I applaud Hilary Swank for this. Her hair looks great and I love this color on her. I do not, however, like her Michael Kors dress. It just looks so familiar. Didn't we see Emma Stone in something like this for the Oscar's? And then weren't we comparing that to something Nicole Kidman wore earlier? Why yes. Yes we were.
Kate Bosworth looks like a bird in this Prada dress. End of story.
I LOVE YOU, KRISTEN WIIG. Gosh, I am dying over her Stella McCartney dress. I am going to ignore her shoes because they are not working for me, but I love this.
OH MY GOSH. When I was looking at all these pictures, I was actually in class, and when I saw this I actually gasped dramatically outloud. Okay, no. Not dramatically. There was an appropriate amount of drama allowed because this is awful. Like, I don't know where to start. Her bored facial expression? Her hair? Her heinous Balenciaga dress? Her shoes, which I thought were actually socks at first glance? Nope. It's all equally bad. Would it kill you to look like you are having a little fun, KStew? I know you're an actress, or whatever, so just act like it.
Okay, Kristen Bell is literally the cutest little thing ever. While I will never be a fan of halter dresses, I am actually okay with her Tommy Hilfiger dress. She just looks so pretty and happy! That's honestly the best combination.
In an attempt not to offend, Mary Kate Olsen looks like an 89 year old woman.
Rhianna looks good in everything, if we are just being honest. I don't particularly love this, for it makes her look like a reptile. I also don't love her hair. Okay, you can do better than this, Rhi Rhi. I know you can.
It seems as though Rooney Mara has lost her pants. Oddly enough, she doesn't seem to be super concerned about their loss. The more I look at the dress, the more I actually dislike it. I mean, it's black lace for crying outloud and I am passing on it. Madness.
Evidently Sarah Jessica Parker and Lily Collins had a little meeting beforehand because they both showed up in Valentino gowns. Actually I'm sure that didn't happen because I heard SJP is kind of a real life bitch, so I'm sure she would not be having any of that nonsense. So that's a bummer. I actually don't hate this as much as I think I should, so that's also a bummer.
Until the day I die, I will strive to look like Sofia Vergara when I'm her age. She looked stunning in this Marchesa gown. Unlike Leighton Meester (I'm still mourning, let me be.) this Marchesa gown looks like it was made for her. She looks gorgeous.
I actually love Diane Kruger's Prada dress. I don't know if it was appropriate for the event, but I love it nonetheless.
