Thrown a Curve 'Ball'

(Queen of the Universe in and with Oscar de la Renta)

A few weeks ago I wrote how there was none of the usual hype for this year's Costume Institute Ball at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Well where there's no smoke, there's none of that fire. And last nite was in desperate need of a bellow.

(Hilary Rhoda in Prabal Gurung)

(Naomi Campbell in
Dolce +Gabbana)                                       

Ladies, these outfits are weak. This is your moment to give us a giant sartorial bitch slap, Alexis Carrington style. This is more like Amanda Woodward lite.

(Jessica Stam in Rachel Roy)

(Zoe Saldana in Calvin Klein)


Things I did like: lots of models present, granted outside Naomi no "supers". Where's Kate? Stephanie? Alek? Karen Elson? Could they smell this stinker a mile away?

(Chanel Iman doin' it in Michael Kors)

And I liked that most guests repped for American designers (again except Naomi. Oh Nomes! Gotta love ya!)

And these usual suspects looked good:

(Chloe Sevigny in Proenza Schouler)

(Nicole Richie in Marc Jacobs)


(Rachel Zoe in Marc Jacobs)

(Gwen Stefani in LAMB)


And obviously let my US Weekly subscription lapse, cuz when did these two get back together???

(Sienna Miller in Pucci and Jude Law)

But hands down the best look of the evening belongs to:

(Dreamboat Christopher Bailey
and non-descript young'in white girl actress  #4)

  1. Yay, thanks for posting! I think the "non-descript white girl actress" might be Emma Watson, who was in the Harry Potter films and who has been totally bringing it, fashion-wise, for the last year or two. She's definitely got the big designers woo-ing her, and tries to go a bit more avant garde. The other gals were weak, though, as you said. Bring on some Alexis Carrington Colby Dexter Dexter Rowan, goddmmit!!!! This is the MET GALA, after all! xoxl
