Red Carpet Fashion: 2011 Met Gala (Part 2)

Hope you’ve been keeping up with my Met Gala fashion coverage. If not, see my best dressed picks and part 1 of the red carpet fashion. If you’re all caught up then let’s continue…


Mia Wasikowska in Thakoon

An awkward hemline and boring shoes, but the fit of this dress is stunning. The detailing on the bodice is dramatic enough to make this black dress really stick out. I’ve seen better, but I’ve seen worse.


Mary Kate Olsen in vintage Givenchy Couture

I actually don’t mind the dress…it’s very MKO (vintage and oversized) but the green accessories paired with this red dress? Come on. You can’t help but think, CHRISTMAS. And are those bells sticking out of the necklace and bracelet? This outfit is only appropriate on December 25th (if that).


Leighton Meester in Louis Vuitton

She always means well. Leighton truly thinks she’s making fashionable choices, but unfortunately the styling is always all wrong. From the neck up you’d think she’s wearing a flowing gold strapless gown, and from the neck down you’d think she’s about to start torturing you…with a whip.


Lea Michele in Escada

Lea always looks gorgeous on the red carpet. I will give her that. But this is way too understated for the Met Gala. I know she can do better.


Jennifer Lopez in Gucci

Nothing is working for me here. Pink bag with a pink dress, then red lips, with crazy floral shoulder detailing and that neck wrap…it’s just too much! Sorry JLo…I’d stick to the sequins you’re used to.


Jennifer Hudson in Vera Wang

Waist up is gorgeous. Waist down is a disaster.


Iman in Stella McCartney

The same rules apply to SJP as they do to Iman. You do not criticize, you just admire.


Ginnifer Goodwin in custom Topshop

I really do appreciate what she’s trying to do here. I actually love this dress on its own, I think the shoes are awesome, but the face she’s giving with her odd haircut kind of scares me. I’m not a huge fan of this hair style so it automatically makes me hate this overall look.


Florence Welch in YSL

So angelic. This event is meant for people like Florence Welch. It’s her look, and she owns it.


Eva Mendes in Stella McCartney

Not the biggest fan of a the long sleeve one-shoulder dress, however this one is a gorgeous color and I love the pleating. Eva looks pretty, but it’s now wowing me.

Look out for part 3 coming soon!

  2. I agree about Leighton Meester, and that shoe choice is wrong wrong wrong with the dress. She always seems “off” on a majority of the red carpets.

    How did you like Margherita Missoni?
