    So I thought I'd post some information and articles about tonight's Met gala!! I am beyond excited to see what's in store and what the guests are willing to bring to the table, I really want them to go all out. So disappointed Galliano won't be attending though, I wish they'd forgive him already. He's in the exhibit and really deserves to attend. Anyways I went to Prada's last year and let me tell you, it's magical! I can't wait to see this one, it seems so promising.

    you can see it tonight: HERE

    trolololo i already knew the exhibition would be shit.

    The celebrities who actually dressed up for the theme ended up being my favorites of the night. SJP was easily the best dressed, with honorable mentions going to Miley Cyrus, the Olsens, the Fannings, Sienna Miller, Anja Rubik, Joan Smalls, Anne Hathaway, Donatella Versace (she looked terrible but at least she tried to fit the theme), Gisele Bundchen, Vivienne Westwood (well obviously, since she's one of the pioneers of punk), Hilary Rhoda (although she's an absolutely dreadful interviewer), and Cara Delevingne. Kudos to Madonna for going all out, but she looked like one of those old women that try to dress too young for their age (since she is one of those old women, I guess).

    Some people who didn't dress for the theme but still looked good were Rooney Mara, Eddie Redmayne, Rosie HW, Liu Wen, And then there's a long list of people who showed up wearing boring, forgettable dresses, like Anna Wintour, Jennifer Lawrence, Carey Mulligan, Katie Holmes, etc.

    Worst dressed of the night goes to Beyonce, with Ashley Greene and Kim Kardashian not too far behind.

    I was really disappointed by Gwen wearing Martin Margiela. Both embodied the punk spirit, yet Gwen's outfit ended up being a bore.

    Adding Karolina Kurkova to the best dressed list! The only place this dress would work is at a punk-themed exhibit

    And adding some more to the worst dressed :facepalm:
    (ok they both look amazing here but this is like the POLAR opposite of punk and if it was anyone but anna i would've thought they were trolling or something)

    I knew that this theme would end up looking everybody like idiots.

    Being famous doesn't mean you have a sense for fashion.

    Beyonce is wearing some House of Dereon fug, right there. Is her mom making her clothes again?

    ABBEY! :luv: aw, she looks sweet. I love Sienna, too. Beauties.

    I actually really liked Nicole Richie's look

    Anne Hathaway's boobs were freaking me out :wtf:
    [​IMG]

    K-Stew's hair made her look like a block head

    THIS IS TERRIFYING

    so is this

    and Coco... I thought she looked amazing.

    Overall I'd say so much of the makeup was just terrible... there's a way to do punk without looking like a 50 year old with a smokey eye. Dios Mio.

    The fashion was ok - not my favorite. It ticks me off that not everyone embraced the theme. Especially such a broad theme as punk - could have been done better, IMO.

    And this deserves a special recognition:

    Worst: I thought Karlie Kloss looked horrible! That dress, make up and hair made her look about 20 years older, such a shame :( Kim K, Anna W., Minka Kelly (looked so big), Ashley Green, Beyoncé, Kate Uptown (barf), Kristen S. and so many others

    There are some I missed but I'm tired and they are forgettable. I think a lot of people missed the mark on this one. They think black + studs=punk and most of them just looked more romantic goth than punk. I think Grace expressed pretty well what I was feeling:
