Leelee Sobieski In Christian Dior Couture – 2013 Met Gala

Leelee Sobieski In Christian Dior Couture - 2013 Met Gala

Leelee Sobieski continued to show her allegiance to Raf Simons by donning a Christian Dior Couture look on the red carpet on Monday evening for the 2013 Met Gala in New York City.

The indie actress wore an unusual look consisting of a white strapless bustier gown with a black t-shirt featuring long sheer sleeves with gold embroidered gloves.

I would be lying if I said I loved the look, as it is not to my personal tastes, however, Leelee makes it work. Mostly by keeping things simple and also being the fashion risk-taker that she is.

Signature slick back locks, and a red pout completed her look.

The only other person I can see making this work is of course Tilda Swinton.

Love or loathe?

    I dont get this.

  6. Jess2 May 7, 2013 at 09:03 #

    It isn’t really my taste either but this risk paid off! She looks awesome!

    Love! That is so punk, but not in the leather chains and grommets stereotypical type of punk that all the try-hards wore to impress the vogue types. In the real “I’m effing fabulous and do what I want” kind of punk way.

      Completely agree!

    i love this look, this is one of my favourites!! she looks beyond amazing and has enough punk without it being to ridiculous (like miley’s hair or madonna)

    this could have been great, only thing is that it looks like shes working so hard to make it edgy

  10. B May 7, 2013 at 11:54 #

    I love this. She is just so striking and confident, pulls off this tricky gown without even trying.

    Her gaze is scary but she looks good in the dress.

  12. Elise May 7, 2013 at 13:44 #

    At first I thought she had tattoos! Not a fan of this look

    I just love this look, she nailed the look very well. Everything looked contrast but it was so right for the event.

  14. Bill May 7, 2013 at 14:28 #

    I think she’s the only one that could have pulled that off. Overall punk effect/ not sure how she did that ? She’s one of the special ones.

    Love It!!!!!!!! Major elegant punkieski

  16. Moxie May 7, 2013 at 15:17 #

    I kinda like this look. It looks like she embraced the punk theme with those sheer embroidered sleeves that look like tattoos.

  17. EmmaWoodhouse May 7, 2013 at 15:30 #

    It’s not my style either but I feel the same way, she really rocked this and it was fun to see. I might have added a black narrow grommet studded belt? It’s one of the memorable looks of the night because she really owned this look.

  18. GGG May 7, 2013 at 17:34 #

    LOVE – this is divine, unique, and always interesting. Gorgeous!

  19. Nat39 May 7, 2013 at 18:32 #

    Nope, don´t like anything about this.

    • Nat39 May 7, 2013 at 18:33 #

      …underwhelming, plain and forgettable.

  20. Liz May 7, 2013 at 19:10 #

    Love the sleeves. Without them, the dress would be really boring.

  21. sammy May 7, 2013 at 21:46 #

    Uuuuuhm ok?…

  22. m May 7, 2013 at 21:54 #

    LOVE IT !

    LOVE IT!

    Maybe it could have looked better on Tilda Swinton, but here… I don’t like it. It looks weird, especially with that black T-shirt with the sheer embroidered sleeves. Plus, I don’t like her hair, it does nothing for her and it sure doesn’t match a Couture gown.

  25. Angela May 8, 2013 at 04:37 #

    I’m not getting punk but I loike the dress and the red lippie was perfect. Come to think of it, the sleeves look somewhat like tattoo sleeves, perhaps a subtle punk reference 😛 either way, interesting dress.

  26. TeaAtTwo May 8, 2013 at 22:06 #

    It’s not the most memorable look but I do like mostly because due her attitude and styling.
