Met Gala 2013: Best Dressed

This year’s Met Gala, as you have probably heard via social media, had a punk theme. It was Punk:Chaos to Couture. Some of the stars channeled their inner rock stars, while others just chose to look glamorous instead. While I appreciate celebrities dressing their very best at the Oscar night of Fashion, I was a bit disappointed that more of them didn’t embrace the theme. Everyone loves a theme party. Below are our choices for best dressed of the night:

Emma Watson in Prabal Gurung

So it may not be the most “punk” of them all, but man, did she own it. And that’s pretty punk.

Amber Heard in Emilio Pucci

So I think maybe I didn’t like the punk theme… here is another best dresses pick that wasn’t entirely on theme. But I couldn’t help it. Amber Heard totally stood out in the crowd in her sequined bright red dress with loose curls. She looked stunning.

Anne Hathaway in Vintage Valentino

You could hear a collective gasp in the room (figuratively) when Anne Hathaway walked in the room. The most obvious reason being her normally brunette mane was now a harsh blonde. It is rumored that she dyed it specifically for the Met Ball. What dedication. Her dress enhanced the whole look, and she looked incredible. Everyone can now forget about the Oscar dress fiasco. Kinda.

It’s Blake Lively. She can do no wrong in my eyes. Except maybe forgetting to bring Ryan Reynolds.

Taylor Swift in J Mendel

Taylor Swift is clearly taking a note from Gwyneth Paltrow’s style book. Nude side panels and all. The dress is impeccably cut and worn, but Taylor styled it too…”nice”. Yes, nice. Her hair needs to be more fierce to compliment the dress, because right now the two don’t match. But other than that, it’s a step up Taylor.


Rooney Mara in Givenchy

Hi. My name is Rooney Mara and I knocked all of you out of the water. Perfectly combining the punk theme and pure elegance, Rooney Mara wore an edgy, white Givenchy gown and stole the spotlight. The high-low hemline, hard edges, buckle detailing and dark make up was so cool I forgot about that other white dress (natch, gray hair) making headlines… that’s you Nicole Richie.

Thoughts? It was a diverse evening. What were your favorites and least favorites?

  2. kulki online You could cenalirty see your skills within the work you write. The sector hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to say how they believe. At all times follow your heart. Billy Almon has all of his inlaw and outlaws here

    • Good to hear from you Mike. I always know exlctay what to write to get you to pipe up, right? Reasonable people can disagree on these rankings, but Syracuse did just lose AT HOME to Pitt by DOUBLE DIGITS. I understand the Kansas-Cornell analogy by we all know Kansas would beat Cornell 9 out of 10 times. That’s the definition of a fluke. Can we say that about Pitt-Cuse? I don’t think so. Let me see more and then I will adjust accordingly. As for West Virginia and Villanova, I’ve had them 1-2 in that order since October and I see no reason to change that right now. Nova losing to Temple in one of those crazy Big 5 games (where upsets are commonplace) doesn’t upset the apple cart in my mind. Again, it’ll all play out. I actually enjoyed Boeheim’s postgame after Seton Hall, even his potshot at the media about OOC schedule strength (at least the quotes were interesting and usable). Much better than the normal blah-blah-blah you get from a lot of the other guys. Bitter, the point about last year’s Big East is how it was the deepest league ever. Obviously no league was better at the top than those mid-80s Big Easts. If it makes you feel better the next time it comes up I will put an asterisk and a footnote making this distinction. Piratefocus,I’ve been beating the drums for Fero Hall as you know, but he is way too small to play center in the Big East. Have you seen the size of the postmen on the other teams? Big John is a space-eater and is useful in short spurts (alas, his knees have robbed him of the rest). Fero has to beef up big-time before he can hold his own at center for any reasonable lengths.
