Stephanie Seymour In Alexander McQueen – 2013 MOCA Gala

Stephanie Seymour In Alexander McQueen - 2013 MOCA Gala

When Stephanie Seymour attended the ‘Yesssss!’ 2013 MOCA Gala in Los Angeles, California on Saturday, she promptly proved that Swiss-born artist Urs Fischer’s progressive exhibit wasn’t the only art being showcased.

The model indulged her creativity at the Museum of Contemporary Art’s event by strutting out a sleeveless version of a black confection that took to Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2012 runway.

She left the theatrical futurism—the Plexiglas visor, molded silver belt, and fur-clad buckle knee-boots—on the runway. But this pom-pom-tufted, laser-cut frock and those Alexander McQueen gladiator sandals were still plenty dramatic.

Following the recent no-makeup trend, Stephanie showed off her true beauty with a nude look and a casually pinned-back updo.

Does Stephanie’s craftsy ensemble have you saying ‘Yesssss!’ or ‘Nooooo!’?

    LOVE IT.

    It’s fun, trendy, but the cut and silhouette is age-appropriate. Great balance! Plus the quirkiness is spot on for me :)

    Oh my God, that outfit on both Mrs. Seymour and the model is so so tragic. She’s too pretty to be in this.
    There are certain dress/outfits that not meant to worn on the red carpet, I believe this is one of them.

    This is a dress meant for the runway only and is more a piece of fashion art, hence the difficulty in translating the look off the runway. As a result it is completely overwhelming and even looks slightly ridiculous.

      +1. She should have said NOooooooooo to whoever proposed to wear it !!!!!

    • Noemi April 22, 2013 at 13:59 #

      I really agree with you!

        +3 Exactly. Some looks are better left on the runway.

    a Yessssssssss! :)
    love the dress

    I think this is a perfect ensemble for the event at hand, a celebration of modern art. She looks great and wisely kept the styling to a minimum to let the dress make the statement.

    • Beta April 22, 2013 at 14:51 #

      +1 Yesss!

    Ugh this is so tragic. This is was seriously just meant for the runway. I can’t believe whoever decided to put this on the red carpet. How awful.

  7. Rebecca Z April 22, 2013 at 15:06 #

    My initial reaction was a no, but it has turned into a yes. I agree this dress is a work of art, but it is perfect for the event. It looks adorable on her (tho perhaps a tad young) and I really really like it. The only thing I would change would be a red lip.

  8. Moxie April 22, 2013 at 15:26 #

    Big fat no from me. And she doesn’t look comfortable wearing it. Someone else could have sold this look, but she’s not even trying.

  9. Marybeth April 22, 2013 at 16:49 #

    Nooooooooooo!

    The dress is ridiculous either way – on and off the runway, some uninspired fantasy. Cool sandals though.

  11. Chainie Wen April 22, 2013 at 17:50 #

    No to the everything. The fur, the dress, the style. The design of this so called ‘high-fashion’ brand is getting ridiculous by day, yet they keep getting the praise because of the name that they carry.

    Speechless.

    yesssss, i think she does it justice, it’s not easy taking a look like that off the runway, but she did right in letting the dress speak. definitely event apprpriate for the carpet

  13. flao April 22, 2013 at 23:29 #

    i was there and saw her in person and she was beyond stunning. i definitely thought she was best dressed for the evening (and i saw everyone come in). she owned it that night for sure. the dress was so whimsical and unique; it was a perfect complement to the way the event was themed.

    The dress is as heinous on the runway as it is off. Hate the pom-poms, the u-neck, and the unflattering silhouette.

  15. effieee April 23, 2013 at 02:35 #

    I think this look would’ve worked had she slicked her hair back and worn a more simplistic shoe. Although kudos to her for being brave enough to wear such a difficult design.

  16. Agent_X April 23, 2013 at 20:11 #

    Needs the boots. Without them, the outfit is all hat and no cattle.

    and lol @ the comments about how this shouldn’t be on the red carpet. Uh, hello, it’s for MOCA. It’s not exactly the staid, button-downed Met Ball, for chrissakes.
