fashion friday

The 2013 MET Gala, New York’s annual ‘Oscar of style’ fundraiser party, took place this week and it’s theme was punk. With such an edgy theme to have fun with I was anticipating creativity at its best, but a lot of celebrities simply stuck to their red carpet style (yawn).

Here are my picks for best and worst dressed – based on the night’s theme.

Christina Ricci – how incredible is this Vivienne Westwood creation?! She’s totally owning the night’s theme, and I love how her ‘quiet’ jewelry keeps the focus on the dress.
SJP – to borrow a coined phrase from my favourite gossip blogger, Lainey, this is pure DRESS PORN. I’m mean just look at those tartan velvet knee-high boots

2013 MET Gala Best DressedWORST:
Anna Wintour and daughter Bee 
– I don’t get it. I just don’t get it. Anna, the most powerful woman in fashion shows up to the ‘punk themed’ party SHE PLANNED looking like she was going to a garden party. And her daughter’s dress looks like an ebola outbreak is going to occur at any moment from the spores crawling all over it.
Gwyneth Paltrow – underwhelmed. SO underwhelmed.

2013 MET Gala Worst Dressed

Jennifer Lawrence failed to bring the punk, but what she did bring was just awesome. This photo bomb is gold. Pure gold.

    GREAT recap! I was also disappointed with so many of the dresses – Gwyneth’s included. I would be disappointed if that thing showed up at a regular red carpet – but the MET!?? Fail.

    I TOTALLY agree about Gwyneth’s dress being underwhelming….I was so disappointed.
