Hits and Misses from the 2014 Met Gala Red Carpet

Another red carpet.  You know I have feelings.  And joining the conversation this time is guest blogger, Liz.

Oh, hell YES!

Jaclyn Michelle: Karen Elson looks phenomenal!  Who says redheads can’t wear pink???

Liz: Some girl in high school. I wore a pink prom dress.  I showed HER!

Jaclyn Michelle:  BOOM! What I love about this gown is that it’s super flattering, it’s approrpiately referential to the occasion, and brings just the right amount of drama.  Elson is a true style icon.

Ummm…

Joan Smalls

Jaclyn Michelle: That dress?  YES!  That lipstick?  NO NO NO.

Beyoncé

Jaclyn Michelle:  I have mixed feelings about the dress.  I mean, Beyoncé could wrap herself in a shower curtain and she’d look PHENOMENAL…I just don’t know how I feel about the dress itself.

Liz: Choose your words wisely–I don’t think you’re allowed to say anything negative about Beyoncé on the internet.

Sarah Jessica Parker

Liz: Who signs a couture dress?

Jaclyn Michelle:  It’s like the Gap logo sweatshirt of gowns. From the front, it’s very evocative of Charles James’ work…but from the back…déclassé.

Rachel McAdams

Jaclyn Michelle:  Lovely, but…yawn…I’m sorry.  What were we talking about again?

Not quite…maybe they misread the invite?

Michelle Williams

Jaclyn Michelle:  She knows that this is the Met Gala, right?  Not drinks w/ friends at The Jane? I mean, it’s a chic cocktail dress, but this is the MET GALA!  WEAR A GOWN!    Ditto, Lena Dunham:

Dree Hemingway

Jaclyn Michelle: I actually think Dree looks stunning and love her in this dress.  I just feel like it’s a hair shy of being appropriate for the occasion.

Swing and a miss

Lupita Nyong’o

Jaclyn Michelle:  I think it’s appropriate that well all take a moment of silence to mourn the end of Lupita’s perfect sartorial streak…*tear*

Katie Holmes

Jaclyn Michelle:  Oh, hell no.

Liz: Katie Holmes is dressed as her favorite Disney Princess.

Jaclyn Michelle: “Belle goes Boho.”  I blame the Scientologists.

Kate Upton

Jaclyn Michelle:  So many things.  Where to start?  The corset? The headdress? Is she conjuring Frida Kahlo? I just don’t get what this has to do with Charles James or is in any way appropriate for the event…

Nicole Richie

Liz:  Nicole Richie has purple hair?

Jaclyn Michelle:  She is REVIVING my mis-guided 9th grade fashion fantasies.  Crushed velvet.  Manic Panic hair. 67 individual ear piercings (approximately).

Erykah Badu

 Jaclyn Michelle:  Watch out, Pharell.  Erykah Badu is coming for you. She’s seeing your Vivienne Westwood and raising you a bedazzler…

Elizabeth Olsen

Jaclyn Michelle:  I’m really glad that Elizabeth Olsen could take some time out of her jam-packed ice capades schedule to make the Met Gala. And on what planet do those shoes go with that dress?

Tabitha Simmons

Jaclyn Michelle:  We’re honoring costumes, not wearing them.  Should have clarified. Though Tabitha’s attempt at conjuring Flora is admirable…if she were performing in an opera.

A picture is worth a thousand words.  I have zero.

Rita Ora
