...


I woke up this morning, all fidgety and eager, counting down the minutes until I could find out who wore what at the MET costume gala.


A mixed bag. And I know there are a lot of varying reactions solely by the sheer amount of pages clocked up on the fashion spot thread.


sticking to the theme proved difficult; Anna Wintour, Rachel Bilson and Naomi Watts all took risks that didn't pay off, while Christina Ricci, Kate Bosworth and Kate Moss all incorporated subtle superhero touches with belts and comic book inspired palettes. others looked fantastic despite deeming it unneccesary to pay attention to the dress code.


NOTE: You'll have to hold tight until tomorrow to find out who has won the MET costume gala competition. Hold tight!



christina ricci, michelle trachenberg, kate moss, jessica stam, kate bosworth, scarlett johansson

zac posen and kate mara




amanda peet, kimora lee simmons, mischa "resurrect me" barton, katie holmes, anna wintour

I think Anna looked good actually, I mean I would NEVER wear it but it suited the theme and was rather alien looking which actually suited her! It looks slightly Doctor Who, but there is something about it that I think works.
Amanda Peet? Holy Moly!!!!

Elisabeth said...

Yikes, the worst dressed really were the worst...

I haven't really started looking at the pics yet, but there are some gorgeous dresses in the best dressed section.

Anna didn't strike me as being one of the worst dressed, considering the theme. And Mischa doesn't look THAT bad. Not one of her best by a long way, but not a disaster?

Oh and I love the whole superman thing with Zac Posen.

Great post, love the captions.

Look at Anna's dress!!
Huh... :S

Chelsea Rae said...

I loved Zac and Kate's outfits they were superheroes with dressing like them. I also appreciated Anna's leap into the super-garb. It wasn't the most wearable gown, but I liked it.

Anouk said...

nicolas ghesquiere? i saw a picture of him there, i think on style.com. I forget who he was with.

AlicePleasance said...

Scarlett Johansson looked great!

deexdeexdreamer said...

i must be one of the only people who liked anna's outfit! Otherwise, i was HUGWly disapointed. You can't hold the grecian dresses for one night in the name of being creative people?!

Except for Zac- the clark kent vibe was all we wanted!

(and a wonderwoman, but eh)

Pretty In Black said...

I googled Alison Mosshart and I found the bit you wrote about her shaving her head. Very cool. I'll definitly be returning here.

Belle said...

Juliet said...

Who would have guessed Anna would wear something that ...risky?

Teresa said...

OMG IS THAT KATIE HOLMES. Seriously, either the lighting is off, or she has a really major Victoria Beckham tan. And Anna....epitome of an ice queen. WOW.

The Clothes Horse said...

Your best and worst dressed is so right. And where are all the missing celebs?

Cris Lazoru said...

I actually liked The Wintour's dress! but agreed in the rest of your worst dressed. And were was Gwyneth? it was The time to pimp her film.

a genius and hilarious entry, loves it!

Miss V. said...

Jessica Stam looks stunning! And I love Zac and Kate, but I didn't like Kate Bosworth's dress.

Jimena said...

I thought Wintour did well at least if for giving it a real try...

It was such a dissapointment to such a lack of creativity and originality.

Still.. Kate Moss looked fantastic.

Jimena said...

Oh dear... I just took a second look at your Worst Dress... What is going on with Mischa Barton there? That is just, well....

oigh.

Fashion Tidbits said...

Jeannie said...

SouLBoutiQue said...

I personally LOVED Kimmora's dress.

indie said...

Ah, all my favorites were missing, but god damn jessica stam! That's how I'd dress to these events.

Anonymous said...

alexander wang was there, in ripped jeans no less. but what about lake bell's balmain dress? i got a superhero vibe from that one.
