Fashion Fails | Worst Dressed at the MET Gala

We’ve seen the good, and now it’s time to unveil the ugly! While some celebrities nailed the punk theme, others just took it a little too far! Here they are:

Anne Hathaway in vintage Valentino: We know you’re trying to show off your new platinum do’ Anne, but it’s so hard to concentrate on your hair because all we can see are those distracting sheer panels and furry cuffs from your dress!


Anne H


Elizabeth Banks in Atelier Versace and custom “Elizabeth” by Brian Atwood sandals: While this look could have worked for her role as Effie Trinket in “The Hunger Games”, the shinny gold tux proved to be too much for the MET red carpet!


Elizabeth Banks


Kristin Stewart in Stella McCartney: There are so many things wrong with this jumpsuit; from the maroon color to the volumes, KStew looks lost somewhere in this outfit. Also not helping her look was her choice of eyeshadow!




Karlie Kloss in Louis Vuitton: Maybe the Victoria’s Secret angel should have went for a punk inspired bikini instead of this awful and unflattering Louis Vuitton dress!


Karlie Kloss


Katy Perry in Dolce & Gabanna: While Katy Perry’s outfit choices are usually interesting, this was just too much. From the jewel encrusted dress to the crown (yes crown!), Perry should have known that if the characters on “Game of Thrones” wouldn’t wear this, then neither should she!


Katy Perry


Ashley Olsen: While it remains unclear who designed Ashley’s dress, what’s for sure is that she looked like the little angel statue my family uses for the manger at Christmas time!


Ahley Olsen


Madonna in custom-made Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci: Seriously Madonna! You’re 54! If you’re not going to start putting pants on now, when will you?!




Beyoncé in custom-made Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci: Looking like she was doing a dress rehearsal for her music video for “Bow Down B*****s” (especially in the shoe department), Beyoncé was a walking disaster in this matchy-matchy outfit- a far cry from her winning look at last year’s MET Gala.




Kelly Osbourne in Marc Jacobs: I don’t have the words to describe this look, but I will say that while I am a huge fan of Marc Jacobs, this dress just did not work!


Kelly Osbourne


Kim Kardashian in custom-made Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci: Having been publicly banned from the MET Gala over the years by Anna Wintour , Kim reportedly only received an invite for being Kanye West’s gf. I was actually looking forward to seeing what she would wear following so many fashion faux pas throughout her pregnancy. Instead, she looked like a big pile of flowers that needed to be watered. (gloves included!) Let’s hope Kimye stay together until next year so she can try to redeem herself!

Red Carpet | Memorable Oscar Fashion!

The wait is over and Oscar night is finally here! For many of us fashion enthusiasts, this night is more about the designer gowns, fancy hair, and drop-dead-gorgeous diamonds rather than who actually wins an award!

So in anticipation of what the stars will bring to the red carpet tonight, here are Oscar’s most memorable gowns ever!

Halle Berry

The most memorable dress of the century! In 2002, nominee Halle Berry stepped on the red carpet in this Elie Saab Couture gown with a sheer bodice and strageically placed embroidery. Lucky for her, she even won the Oscar for “Monster’s Ball” and got to show the dress to the world in her acceptance speech.


Halle B


Penelope Cruz

Penelope chose a blush colored Atelier Versace gown for the 2007 Academy Awards with a sweeping train. An elegant updo and natural makeup completed the flawless look!


Penelope C


Charlize Theron

To collect her Best Actress award for “Monster”, Charlize wore a nude Gucci gown to the 2004 Academy Awards. The dress fit Charlize like a glove and she managed to look even more Hollywood glam in her retro waves and statement jewelry.


Charlize T


Anne Hathaway

Before chopping off her hair to play “Fantine” in “Les Miserables”, this year’s Best Supporting Actress nominee dazzled on the red carpet in 2008. Her deep red Marchesa chiffon gown with flowers on the bodice and shoulder looked like a piece of art and the train made the look even more dramatic.


Anne H


Julia Roberts

One year before Halle Berry’s legendary Oscar gown, Julia Roberts turned heads when she hit the red carpet wearing Vintage Valentino. The black dress with white accents is the best thing I’ve ever seen Julia in. That night, Julia won Best Actress for her role in “Erin Brokovich” and I’m sure the gown is one of the reasons why she received a standing ovation as she finished her speech!


Julia R


Michelle Williams

Who could forget the canary yellow Vera Wang gown Michelle Williams wore to the 2006 Academy Awards? With the late Heath Ledger on her arm, Michelle was the definition of boho chic in this mustardy color, along with a side swept-do, red lips, and a statement necklace.


Michelle W


Hillary Swank

When Hillary Swank walked the Oscar red carpet in 2005, everyone thought she looked far too conservative. Fast forward a few minutes and Hillary reveals a cutout down to there in the back of her Guy Laroche gown. She also picked up an Academy Award for her stellar performance in “Million Dollar Baby”.


Hillary S


Jennifer Lawrence

In 2011, Jennifer Lawrence was nowhere close to how famous she is today. But that didn’t stop her from knocking it out of the park in this va-va-voom red Calvin Klein gown. This low cut yet simple gown, along with blownout blonde locks put Jennifer on the best dressed list that year!


Jennifer L


Mila Kunis

Wearing lavender in February can be tricky, but Mila was a vision in this chiffon Elie Saab gown at the 2011 ceremony. The delicate lace is placed strategically in all the right places and the ribbon around the waist compliments Mila’s figure perfectly.


Mila K


That’s it for now, but tune in tomorrow to find out who was best dressed at the 2013 Academy Awards live from Hollywood!
