    for me, natalia was far and away the best dressed at the event.

  2. Annel May 5, 2011 at 19:45 #

    Love how Christina Ricci channels Wednesday Addams-grown-up-all-feisty πŸ˜€

    Kristen Stewart wins my vote for best dressed..

  4. Lori May 5, 2011 at 03:16 #

    Christina Ricci, hands down.
    Honourable mention to Diane Kruger.

  5. Rashmi May 5, 2011 at 03:14 #

    Diane looked the prettiest but my vote goes to Karolina… Drama n that pose!!

    my favorites were Liv, Diane, and Christina. Liv is just sooo beautiful, and its the first time someone really made that collection work on the red carpet, and it was fitting for the event. Diane looked awesome, but there is some de ja vu about the dressand she could have been braver at this event, the dress is a bit safe, but, still sooo gorgeous, and i would wear that dress in a heartbeat, sadly i doubt it is in my price range! Christina was perfect for this event, she really brings it at the met, my only gripe is that the bottom of the dress weighs her down, otherwise, it was great. I can’t believe some people put her on the worst dressed lists!

    Ginnifer was probably my pick for best accessorized, her necklace, makeup, dress, and shoes worked perfectly together, and i really did like her dress, although i’m guessing the topshop designers were very inspired by gucci. her real downfall is that ugly chickens nest she calls hair. I’m not a fan of pixies, but you can do them right, and imo, shes doing it wrong.

    i expected more from zoe, obviously she looks amazing, but really, for her, she could give us so much more. by contrast, I applaud karolina’s bravery and wish more had taken a similar approach. i loved sjp & renee’s dresses, but nothing groundbreaking there. emma just looked mumsy to me. i’m not particularly loving her look.

    • hally May 4, 2011 at 19:24 #

      oh, and blake! first off, far tooooo orange to pull off the red hair, and i cannot in any way support her outfit. this is the best karl can come up with for his muse? i really disliked it. what a waste of her body and good looks! but, let me say she is working the HELL out of that bedsheet! but i must repeat what i always think when i see Blake, get a stylist already!!! i am sure a good stylist would still make sure you have a say in what you wear, they will just help you dress in the best way you can!

  10. Rach May 4, 2011 at 18:54 #

    My best-dressed was Gisele but in lieu of her, I’ve gone for Diane Kruger. She looks amazing but still kept it interesting and edgy, which so many forgot!

  11. Hannah May 4, 2011 at 18:03 #

    The only contenders for me were those on the third row, and inevitably I gave it to Liv Tyler. She looks INCREDIBLE! I love this chang eof direction, and I so wish she’d wear Givenchy more, at least moreso than stella mccartney, she pulls it off so well.

  12. lil'fashionista May 4, 2011 at 17:52 #

    Ashley Olsen, hands down!

    • hally May 4, 2011 at 19:25 #

      i loved ashley as well! i wish mary kate would step out of her muumuu rut and join the fun!

  13. NooG May 4, 2011 at 17:26 #

    Between Diane and Gennifer…Gennifer had to get the vote though…I mean it’s a freakin Topshop dress! And the makeup and necklace – to die for!

  14. Bia May 4, 2011 at 16:06 #

    Where is Gisele Bundchen?? She was so perfect, the best dressed for me!!

  15. fashionrookie May 4, 2011 at 15:35 #

    Forget about Academy Awards, Met Gala is definitely my favorite red carpet look from now on. So many great outfits in one night !
    And, thanks so so so much, FC! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bigger event coverage , that included so many looks. you never disappoint us, do you ? πŸ˜‰ x

    • Fashion Critic May 4, 2011 at 20:16 #

      I try not to πŸ˜€

      Love that so many of you left comments x

  16. Charlotte May 4, 2011 at 15:31 #

    Like everyone else, I loved your coverage and I went for Diane! From the moment I saw her, i was in awe!

    But FC, who was your very favourite from last night?

    • Fashion Critic May 4, 2011 at 18:03 #

      Thank u

      Ricci by far

      • Rebecca May 4, 2011 at 19:34 #

        Of course! Mine, too

  17. Alina May 4, 2011 at 15:14 #


    Thanks , FC ! Your coverage was amazing.

    • Fashion Critic May 4, 2011 at 15:18 #

      thanks Alina

  18. DivaMom May 4, 2011 at 15:08 #

    Voted Madonna. only because Gisele was not up there.

  19. Natalia May 4, 2011 at 15:07 #

    i think karolina kurkova and christina ricci were the best becouse they got the mcqueen sense of style and they donΒ΄t even wore mcqueen… that the sad part for me … iΒ΄m a big fan of lee mcqueen and i was so exciting waiting for this event because i really expected to see so much faboulous mcqueen dresses, this was the perfect ocassion to show off his spectacular creations, to step out, to be bold and fearless but most of the people who wore mcqueen went for a “safer” choice with just a few exceptions.
    i expected that sarah jessica parker wow us wearing something really bold and stunning like she has done before… she actually looked beautiful like a lot of the guests did, but i really expected a lot more from this event having the alexander mcqueen work as the inspiration, i expected some “savage beauty” in this red carpet…

    congrats for your work!! i read your page every day for at least 3 years and i never post because my english isnΒ΄t very good but i really have to do it now

    • Fashion Critic May 4, 2011 at 15:21 #

      thanks Natalia…wow 3 years…thanks for your support.

      You have see so many changes in the site. Look forward to a new change coming soon πŸ˜‰

  20. dee May 4, 2011 at 15:04 #

    Love Diane Kruger, Madonna, Christina RIcci, Emma Stone and Karolina Kurkova.

  21. chi-town May 4, 2011 at 14:50 #

    Amazing coverage FC. I have been a lurker on your site for a couple of years and this is the first time I am commenting. And thank you for all the work that you put in this site. Its the first thing I check every morning. The Met Gala coverage was fabulous.

    Coming to the best dressed, it was between Diane, Karolina and Ginnifer for me. Voted for Diane in the end. She is just perfect.

    • Fashion Critic May 4, 2011 at 15:23 #

      Thank you.

      I’m so glad I brought so many lurkers out today πŸ™‚

  22. Ana May 4, 2011 at 14:43 #

    My favorite was Jennifer Lopez, but she’s not here so I go for Christina Ricci… Ashley Greene was good to!

  23. GusMex May 4, 2011 at 14:30 #

    where is Gisele?? i need her in this poll!!!! hehehe, of curse, my favorite!

  24. Megha May 4, 2011 at 14:21 #

    Took a bit of thought but my vote went to Karolia…because only her and Christina made me go “woah” and i feel like the Met Gala is all about the “woahs” not just the “oooh pretty” πŸ™‚

    FC – such awesome coverage…i kept eagerly refreshing the page over the last two days!! THANK YOU!

    • Fashion Critic May 4, 2011 at 14:28 #

      thank you. it was my pleasure

  25. rebecca o May 4, 2011 at 13:39 #

    Okay… somehow I totally missed Christina’s dress until now. Now that is best dressed, hands down! And she actually fit the theme. it’s too late to change my vote, but I had to mention her awesome dress.

  26. Elle May 4, 2011 at 13:02 #

    I have mixed feelings about this Gala… I feel many of the dresses worn were love/hate ones and even a few deja-vu’s (Ahem, Gwyneth Paltrow)…

    FC – Absolutely amazing coverage as usual, thank you SO much! I was up all night working on my essay and it was nice to have your site as a little retreat every now and then πŸ˜€

    • Fashion Critic May 4, 2011 at 13:21 #

      thanks so much…I now can’t wait for Cannes…two weeks of non-stop fashion

  27. CreoleLady May 4, 2011 at 12:58 #

    Liv or Christina, Liv or Christina. I ended up going with Liv because it’s springtime where I live and I loved the white/yellow ombre. But gee, along those lines, how did I miss Zoe’s ray of sunshine?

    See, that’s why I come to RCFW. FC always serves up something I missed or fashion education I lack. FC’s coverage of the Met gala was second to none as far as I am concerned. Wow – thank you, FC, for curating these looks for us and for your discerning eye.

    • Fashion Critic May 4, 2011 at 13:20 #

      glad to hear you enjoyed it.

      Thanks so much

  28. shubby doo May 4, 2011 at 12:47 #

    was totally confused who to pick went for diane kruger in the end. her look is both stunning and timeless! love it.

  29. Ines May 4, 2011 at 12:17 #

    I’d have put Liu Wen instead of Zewelleger but I voted for Kiki she was mind blowing !! Close 2nd is Ricci!

    Thank God for the models !!

  30. Clau May 4, 2011 at 11:56 #

    Why isn’t Gisele Bundchen in your list?
    She was best dressed for me.

  31. b May 4, 2011 at 11:42 #

    Karolina Kurkova in Jean Paul Gaultier Couture for the win

    • mol May 4, 2011 at 14:44 #


  32. Fee May 4, 2011 at 11:42 #

    I love Liv’s look until it gets to the yellow ombre – yuck. Sorry, but it looks like she got peed on. SJP looks great but I wish that she had worn a more dramatic McQueen look in his honour. Have to go for Christina, but I know Diane will win!

  33. aiyu May 4, 2011 at 11:05 #

    I’m so glad you didn’t include Gwyneth in here. InStyle named her best dressed….blah…

    I fav is Karolina, actually all the supermodels rocked.
    Shows that they are not supermodels for nothing.

    • Fashion Critic May 4, 2011 at 13:36 #

      Wow really. Gwyneth wouldn’t have come in my top 50

  34. mia May 4, 2011 at 09:27 #

    I want to thank FC for everything you’ve done, I really enjoy read every thread of MET GALA ‘s topic, you became my favo fashion site.

    • Fashion Critic May 4, 2011 at 10:58 #

      Thank u. Thats very kind of you

  35. mia May 4, 2011 at 09:23 #

    It ‘s the hardest thing to pick the best…. so many fabulous looks, my favo is Diane Kruger, next Liv Tyler, Christina Ricci , Blake Lively, Dakota Fanning, and i also like Giselle’s red dress….save me!!

  36. susan May 4, 2011 at 08:30 #

    Natalia Vodianova was best

  37. Gaber May 4, 2011 at 08:15 #

    I could have easily dumped a few women for Freida, but even then I am not sure she would have outshone Diane.
    She worked the hell out of that dress.

  38. Victoria May 4, 2011 at 08:00 #

    Ahh what a beautiful event! πŸ˜€ So happy to see 3 of my favourites in this list (Blake, Diane and Zoe)! I went with Blake in the end. πŸ™‚ I also really loved Dakota Fanning’s and Ashley Greene princessy gowns!

    Once again, thank you so much for your coverage and for bringing all these lovely looks to us. πŸ™‚ Really appreciate it.

  39. joe May 4, 2011 at 07:57 #


    • Julie May 4, 2011 at 12:22 #

      I agree. AG was one of the best dressed. Gennifer’s gown hung odd on her hips. I’m surprised she’s on this list.

  40. nico May 4, 2011 at 07:52 #

    I vote for Mariacarla Boscono.

  41. Emi May 4, 2011 at 06:53 #

    Madonna! Easily, her gown is a dream.

  42. laura D May 4, 2011 at 06:37 #

    My favorite was Daphne Guinness!

  43. Mimy May 4, 2011 at 06:29 #

    I was soo sure that christina ricci was my best dress at this event until i saw karolina…..i’ll come back in a few hours to vote once i’ve decided! heh

    • Mimy May 4, 2011 at 10:29 #

      i’ve decided to go with christina ricci. its amazing how someone so petite can carry such dramatic gown!

      thanks for the great coverage FC!! πŸ™‚

  44. Lara J May 4, 2011 at 06:16 #

    And slightly off topic, but fabulous coverage of the event, as per usual FC. Thanks for the effort you put in; you did an amazing job!!

    • Fashion Critic May 4, 2011 at 07:16 #

      Thank you…I loved every second of it.

  45. Lara J May 4, 2011 at 06:13 #

    I adored Ginnifer, Diane, Liv and Christina. But my vote goes to Christina because it seems like she dressed to tribute the style of Alexander McQueen.

  46. Jessica May 4, 2011 at 06:11 #

    Just wanted to comment to say thanks for your once again fabulous coverage. I always look forward to reading your thoughts. I think christina ricci looked amazing, she got my vote hands down.

    • Fashion Critic May 4, 2011 at 07:17 #

      thank you for supporting my site…glad you are enjoying it so much. x

  47. rebecca o May 4, 2011 at 06:08 #

    Gisele was the best dressed IMO but since she’s not here I have to go with SJP. She looks so elegant.

  48. k May 4, 2011 at 06:08 #

    I love your choices – I get so tired of people whose fashion sense seems so geared towards the easiest choices or about making fun of anyone who takes a chance. πŸ™‚

    • Fashion Critic May 4, 2011 at 06:09 #

      thank you xx

    • Ayesha May 4, 2011 at 06:22 #

      i really agree with you..sometimes things get so stupid when people who don’t get fashion, make fun of people who are actually looking really good,for eg..i saw that show ‘fashion police’ oscar coverage when joan rivers ridiculed cate blanchett’s givenchy gown,cate was her worst dressed!maybe the fashion police should come and arrest all such people and make them shut up.
      Coming back to the point i think people like FC are a fabulous and refreshing change.

      • Fashion Critic May 4, 2011 at 07:14 #

        thank you. I like to keep it real πŸ˜‰

    • artemis May 4, 2011 at 10:48 #

      Totally agree with you! In some peoples mind we should all wear blach dresses and shoes! ;-)hehe
      I liked Diane Kruger so much I love her style..Karolina Kurkova was amazing too,but this time I voted for Ginnifer Goodwin!!
      ( sorry for my bad spelling all the time)

  49. Liz May 4, 2011 at 06:07 #

    I thought Shalom Harlow was the best dressed at this event!! I can’t believe that she’s not included in this pole. I, like you, have been waiting to see that spectacular Marchesa on the red carpet and I was so happy that it was finally worn, and accessorized perfectly.

  50. Ayesha May 4, 2011 at 06:06 #

    lots of fabulous looks but i think Diane Kruger looks the best,as stunning as always,lover her!
    and thank you so much for the amazing coverage, FC πŸ™‚

    • Ayesha May 4, 2011 at 06:08 #

      love her..nor lover

    • Fashion Critic May 4, 2011 at 06:09 #

      you are very welcome x

    • Iris May 4, 2011 at 08:42 #

      me too re: diane kruger! i was thinking the votes were going to be split over so many gorgeous gowns, but the majority seems to be with us (at least so far!)
