Met Ball Fugs and Fabs: More Women In Red

We’ve already covered a couple gowns in this shade– Amal Alamuddin Clooney, Karen Elson — but the fact that there are so many left over goes to show that people may have coped with the tricky theme by espousing When In Doubt, Just Wear Red. Read More...

Met Gala Well Played: Janelle Monae

She told ALT that the black and white of her gown — which she designed with H&M — is a salute to yin and yang: I feel like, it’s also conveniently the color palate she wears literally all the time, so…she might have just concocted that story on the way up the stairs. That being Read More...

Met Gala Fug or Fab: Katie Holmes in Zac Posen

On his Instagram, Zac Posen called this his “auspicious clouds dress.” I actually quite like it, especially as a departure from the usual hourglass-shaped satiny gowns he likes to do, with lots of twists and darts in the bodice. This has a serenity to it – a gorgeous, inky night sky with gently swirling clouds. And of course, Read More...

Met Gala Fug or Fab Carpet: The Olsen Twins in (vintage) Dior

Rumor has it that they’re both in Dior dating from the John Galliano years. To me, they look like they’re both auditioning for a role on Game of Thrones as the two saucy and very fashionable neighbor witches that Melisandre occasionally pops in to visit, to complain about Stannis’s snoring and maybe borrow some terrifying Read More...

Met Gala Fug Carpet: Cara and Poppy Delevingne

Cara is wearing Stella McCartney for the second year in a row, and it is as questionable as you might imagine. It seriously resembles a Victoria’s Secret-designed wetsuit. For when surfing and scuba diving demand that nightclub edge. Yesterday, the body art felt a little crazy to me, but the more I’ve sat with some of these Read More...

Met Gala Fugs and Fabs: The Rest of the Models

No event brings out more models than this one. Read More...

Met Gala Fugs and Fabs: Women in White

If it seems like we’re missing someone major in this category — like, say, one Kimberly Kardashian — it’s because she got her own post. Let’s dig into the also-rans! Read More...

Met Gala Curiously Played Carpet: Grace Coddington

Okay, this one ought to touch off some discussion. It is obviously… very literal. In a way that veers flagrantly costumey rather than, say, interpreting an inspiration into something new. I saw some people on Twitter were horribly offended; others just thought she was underdressed. Complicating this matter: Per solid reporting sources on Twitter, Grace quipped that Read More...

Met Gala Fugs and Fabs: Patterns

Lord knows, I LOVE a pattern. I think that a Chinese-inspired pattern on a beautiful dress was probably also a smart way for a woman who was perhaps apprehensive about the theme to play along. There are some beautiful highs here, some crazy low, and then CHER. Read More...

Met Gala Fug and Fab: Anna Wintour in Chanel and Bee Shaffer in Alexander McQueen

It’s only fair to put the event’s true overlord under the microscope. Spoiler: SHE PAINTED HER TOENAILS. Read More...

Met Gala Mostly Well Played: Emily Blunt in Prada

I do still have an issue with how so many Prada gowns fit at the bust, so I’m holding back on total unreserved praise. But, to my eyes, this is a nifty way to take two fabrics that are nods to Chinese fashion and give them a modern but still regal spin. She looks great – like, Read More...

Met Gala Fug the Hmm: Karen Elson (and others) in Dolce & Gabbana

This is… dramatic. From a pure construction point of view, I am not wild at ALL about how the skirt attaches with the visible bunches of seams. It cheapens things. Taking a wider view, though… I don’t know, this feels like D&G didn’t care that much, and so tossed her a headdress and were like, “Eh, Read More...

Met Gala Fug or Fab: Zendaya in Fausto Puglisi

As we said for Cosmo, she sort of looks as if she’s starring in a movie about a tarot deck: But I’m not really mad at this. It’s young and whimsical and flirty, and also it has a giant train: Can she sit in it without the front half of the skirt flipping up and Read More...

Met Gala Fugs and Fabs: Metallics

Anne Hathaway just might be the Droid I’m looking for, except I don’t want to end that sentence on the preposition, so I’m still typing. Read More...

Met Gala Fug or Fab: Lady Gaga in Balenciaga

Like Katy Perry, I feel like this could have gone way, way more wrong. (Especially as I’d heard via Twitter that she was wearing geta, the traditional Japanese clogs. Instead, of course, she is wearing Lady Gaga’s Traditional Clogs; those shoes that make her look like she might be Frankenstein’s monster from the calves down.) Read More...

Met Gala Fug Carpet: FKA Twigs in Christopher Kane (with bonus Pattinson)

I am sure this is stodgy of me — the discourse in the comments of the original runway-show post proves my taste in art does not run along these lines. But in my defense, Christopher Kane in general is rarely my bag of bananas. And while I recognize the intricacy of this, I also find it a) eerie Read More...

Met Gala Well Played, Fan BingBing in Christopher Bu

As far as I’m concerned, this is neck and neck with Rihanna’s gown for the Dress of the Night. This is stunning: The dress is glorious, the cape is spectacular, her face and hair are perfect.  I can’t find a single fault: I feel like three-fourths of the celebrities in attendance walked in and saw Read More...

Met Gala Well Played: Amal Alamuddin Clooney in Maison Margiela

I might have liked this better for last year’s theme, as there’s a edginess to the studded bodice that would’ve suited punk (at least, about as well as anyone else’s outfits did). But her other two red carpet looks were both black, so I welcome the hit of color, which she carries with total panache. Read More...

Met Gala Fug or Fab: Miley Cyrus in Alexander Wang

I should hate this so much more than I do: However, the woman behind her and I both seem to be thinking, “I dunno, Miley, but maybe.” It’s a dress apparently designed to show off her hip flexors and one eighth of her collarbone and it’s basically a thong for your torso, but I’m still Read More...

Met Gala Yikes, then Fug or Fab: Emma Roberts in Ralph Lauren

Well. Thankfully Emma Roberts — or one of her associates — must check her social media a lot, because she posted this Instagram of herself getting prepped for the Met Gala with ACTUAL CHOPSTICKS IN HER HAIR WHAAAAAT: #Metball @ralphlauren it’s almost time! A photo posted by Emma Roberts (@emmaroberts) on May 4, 2015 at Read More...
