Pouring through the photos of last nite's CFDA Ball at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I am not feeling love at first sight
(I just won't be able to get this hideous frock out of my head!)
And there was something generally missing from the evening. Where was the pomp? The drama? The art? We're celebrating a man who made a dress out of medical slides here people!
(That's Karen Elson for crikey's sake!)
Some people delivered
(Anna Dello Russo)
(Ashley Olsen and Christian Louboutin)
But there were too many meh looks on too many c-listers
(La La got an invite? What was Angie Martinez busy?)
The crowd was thick with folks in their finest Tory Burch, Tommy Hilfiger and Michael Kors as if they were celebrating Junior prom, not one of the greatest design minds of recent fashion
(Wait - why you there? And why you wearing Tory Burch?)
(Jessica Stam's been practicing her prom queen acceptance speech ever since she picked up her Tommy Hilfiger dress at the mall)
Ok, this Michael Kors fuchsia number on Brooklyn Decker at least embraced the color trend so strong for Spring but people this is the MET Ball! You can where whatever you want and you're encouraged to be adventurous!
But let's end on a high note (cuz it can't be that the above dress is "ok").
Friend of Alexander McQueen and never afraid to take risks Daphne Guinness won the evening as best dressed in McQueen
