Met Ball 2013: The Best and (Mostly) Worst Looks

Last night marked this year’s annual Met Ball. Celebs, models, and fashion icons came out of the woodwork to celebrate the annual opening of The Met’s fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute. With the theme being ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture,’ there was a lot of black, a lot of of makeup, and a lot of bling. Hosted by Vogue, the gala features each year’s most fashionable red carpet and this year did not disappoint. Even though there was certainly a lot of chaos on the carpet, it made the outfits interesting to say the least. Here are some of our favorite looks of the night… and of course many picks for worst dressed. Fashion Police, we got your back.

Beyonce

Sasha Fierce is fierce in this leg-showing dress with matching boots and gloves. Although the design reminds me of something from Forever 21 circa 2007, I like it because I like anything Bey does or wears.

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus went ‘punk’ when she cut off her hair, so this punk themed party was basically her calling. The spiked hair is kind of wild and I can’t stop staring at her boobs because the dress looks like it might be see-through and I don’t think she’s wearing a bra. I seriously cannot decide about this dress because when I put my hand over her face, I start to like it. I do like that oversized ring. Bling bling.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

Mary-Kate is wearing a bathrobe and Ashley is wearing … well, I’m not too sure what she’s wearing. I would love to be a fly on the wall when they’re getting ready. I picture them smiling like Karen in Mean Girls when she finally glues the ‘K’ to her chest (backwards) when their weird outfits are complete.

Katy Perry

There is a woman on Katy’s dress. I’m not sure what is worse: wearing a crown on your birthday… or wearing a crown to the Met Ball… hmm.

Nicole Richie

Every time I look at this picture, I laugh. I can’t help it. Is Nicole trying to start a trend where looking old is in? Because not only does she look 70, but she also looks sick. I don’t get it.

Anne Hathaway

I can’t believe I’m about to say this… but Anne Hathaway looks good. There. I said it. She’s got a Miley Cyrus thing going on with her hair, but it actually looks good. And I f*cking love the furry party going on around her wrists. I also absolutely love this dress. But what really gets me about this whole thang is that it is ANNE HATHAWAY. She looks badass. She should probably always wear this outfit and maybe I would like her.

Jennifer Lawrence

What. is. this. I mean really, JLaw… what is this? The theme was punk and you look like you’re going to your friends Bat Mitzvah. And the hair is up. THIS IS THE MOST BORING OUTFIT EVER. Also, Hell has clearly frozen over now that I have a post applauding Anne Hathaway and scolding Jennifer Lawrence, but whatever.

Kristen Stewart

Despite the fact this looks like a dance costume I would have worn circa 2000, KStew wears it rather well. The dress really goes with her ‘wtf are you looking at?’ look. I probably wouldn’t like this on anyone else.

Gisele Bundchen

Gisele rocks… literally.

Elizabeth Banks

Talk about Risky Business. And those shoes!

January Jones

January Jones looks like Carson Kressley. Just sayin’.

Taylor Swift

T Swift, you look stunning girl. Love the hair and makeup. And I’m really into this dress — especially the sheer side panels! You certainly don’t look 22. Well done!

Anna Wintour

According to Anna, when you throw a theme party you don’t actually have to dress according to theme. Anna looks like she’s going to water plants in a garden. She is about as far from punk as you can get, but it’s fine. Maybe this was a scheme to make herself stand out more than anyone else. Who knows.

Emma Watson

Emma looks absolutely adorable. I wish I could wear this. Sad face.

Madonna

Newsflash: You are 54. Not 24. The only thing I like about this outfit is obviously the shoes. I do love how she is bringing back the 80s (and that cross) but, like, she’s not wearing pants and this isn’t a music video or Halloween — It’s the Met Gala. Well, I guess she’s not pregnant and wearing this…

Kim Kardashian

Stop trying to make skinny happen. You’re pregnant. It’s not going to happen. Regardless, WHAT IS THIS DISASTER? It looks like Kim tightly wrapped bedding from an 80s motel around her and cut a slit for the leg… and then made matching gloves with a pillow case. And some matching shoes. OH GOD, THIS IS AWFUL. MAKE IT STOP.

Psy

Why is Psy at the Met Ball? I mean really… Who invited him?

So what do you think? Who was best dressed? Worst dressed? Let us know in the comments!

  1. Whoa…Anne Hathaway looks amazing! AND TSewift. Two celebs who aren’t usually my favorites. Anna Wintour made me laugh. Boss does what she wants. Lady probably woke up yesterday and was like “You know, I’m just not feeling very punk today. Can we change the theme?”
