I never go outside unless I look like Joan Crawford the movie star. If you want to see the girl next door, go next door.

So this blog is sorta delayed but I have been super busy lately with exams and all the business. But the Met Gala was in the recent past and all the biggest celebs showed up. I thought I would do a quick run down of those who showed up like movie stars and who... well... didnt.
Lets start with the bad ones:
Demi Moore. The dress is by Prabal Gurung. The dress isnt too bad but there is just too much going on and then it was really jacked up paired with that crazy hat thing. I looove hats as we all know but thing is not good..... not good at all
Christina Hendrix. The dress is by Carolina Herrera. I usually love stuff by Carolina Herrera but this is not up to par. I cant decide if it's the weird sheen the fabric has to it or maybe the really bad colors pallete. or maybe it's some combo of both. For whatever reason this is really really bad.
Christina Ricci. Dress by Zac Posen. Eh I cant really put my finger on why i dislike this dress as much as I do. It reminds me of something Lily on The Munsters would wear. It's like a Halloween costume or something... like seriously she should be carrying a broom or a cauldron or something.
Kristen Stewart. Dress by Proenza Schouler. This pattern is just ridiculous. I really dont understand how she keeps getting voted as best dressed on all these lists. This is ridiculous there is no shape or anything redeeming to it. You cant see it in this picture but this dress has a racer back but even that little surprise does not redeem this dress... like at all.
Naomi Campbell in Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. I know McQueen is known for designs like this but there is a time and place for dresses like this and this is not it. This is just a huge mistake. And that little hair piece looks like an 80's scruchie you would wear to jazzercize.
and the good ones!
Dakota Fanning. The dress is by Valentino. I think it is very princessy sorta like the dress worn by Olivia Wilde. Its also very age appropriate but still very fashionable. two thumbs up.
Ashley Greene. Dress by Donna Karan. I love love love this dress. It is so elegant. It is the perfect shape for her body and the color is just beautiful. Also she accessorizes well and lets the dress be the statement. Give the girl an A!.... I wouldn't mind a couple of A's myself
Ashley Olsen. Dress by Christin Dior. There were a lot of mixed reviews for this look, but I personally really like it. I think its very regal and elegant and chic. Yea the sleeves are alot but its a red carpet event and I feel like its appropriate and fashion foward. I like it.
Blake Lively in Chanel. I really like this dress its very Grecian like a goddess. Plus it goes amazing with her new hair color which i also love. Blake Lively is always a star.
Ok that is my run down of the Met Gala fashion. Hope you all enjoyed and happy studying!
