Met Gala 2013 Roundup

Met Gala 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening. Models @ The Met post will follow.

Brooklyn Decker: The actress wore a custom Peter Pilotto look inspired by the Spring 2013 collection. While the look is custom I feel like I have seen this look several times before, so there is nothing fresh or new about it, unlike other custom looks as showcased by Karolina Kurkova and several others. Her Sergio Rossi ‘Hypnos’ sandals, however, are a work of art.

Alicia Keys: The singer took to the red carpet wearing a custom Jason Wu gown. Her black leather and bordeaux sequin embroidered halter gown is beautiful, but I wish Alicia had pushed the punk vibe with the styling a bit more; the red streaks in her hair aren’t enough for me, especially when we know Alicia isn’t afraid of taking a fashion risk. Robert Lee Morris jewels and a vintage clutch completed her look.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The actress wore a beautiful custom Calvin Klein scarlet gown for the occasion which was punked up as far as she would go with a studded choker and a Tod’s black studded clutch with a gold frame. While I do love this look, I wish Maggie had gone bra shopping before this event.

Met Gala 2

Olivia Wilde: The actress who is soon set to say ‘I Do’ also wore a custom Calvin Klein bandeau dress with black pleat insets. Does a cut-out classify as punk? Maybe not, but she looks outstanding.

Nora Zehetner: With a braided updo and sari-style Marchesa Spring 2013 gown, Nora was more Bollywood than punk; however, she looked like she was having fun and expertly styled her look with Harry Winston jewels, a Marchesa clutch and Edmundo Castillo ‘Divina’ sandals decorated with Swarovski crystals.

Giovanna Battaglia: Dressed in a Dolce & Gabbana caged floral confection, the fashion editor added a punk flare to her look with a safety-pin headpiece and gold platform wedges.

Met Gala 3

Leslie Mann: The actress nailed her punk look, wearing a splatter-paint J Mendel Pre-Fall 2013 strapless gown with a layered skirt; however, I’m missing her usual sparkle. She almost faded into the background. A gold Jimmy Choo ‘Cayla’ clutch and Fred Leighton jewels completed her look.

Carine Roitfeld: Why break a winning formula? The fashion editor was, of course, dressed in Givenchy, wearing a Bambi-motif look from the Fall 2013 collection. This collection was very hit and miss for me but, like Zoe Saldana, Carine picked a winning look.

Pixie Geldof: If anyone was supposed to run away with this punk theme it was British former wild child Pixie. Punk is in her DNA, literally – her dad is Bob Geldof – so I found this Moschino frock and overall styling to be wildly missing the mark.

Met Gala 4

Aubrey Plaza: The actress’s Marios Schwab Fall 2013 silver scale-like frock with patchwork detailing and slashed sleeves was styled with Barbara Bui strappy pumps and an oversized clutch. Working the night’s trend – smoky eyes – the actress completed her look with a slightly messy updo.

Felicity Jones: The British actress fared much better, wearing Proenza Schouler better than Chloe Sevigny. Felicity’s black-and-copper technical lace dress was styled with black pumps and barely there makeup, working a darker hairdo with blunt bangs.

Emma Roberts: The young actress wore a custom Diane von Furstenberg gown styled with a DVF ‘Lytton’ clutch and Jennifer Fisher jewels, with a studded belt and blue streak in her hair injecting a small element of punk.

Met Gala 5

Teresa Palmer: The Australian actress’s red DVF gown was far more striking. She styled her look with a DVF ‘Tonda’ clutch, allowing her hair and makeup to bring out the punk in her look.

Greta Gerwig: The actress wore a Saint Laurent Spring 2013 dress which we have seen once before on Miriam Yeung. Greta styled her chiffon gown, which was more boho than punk, with a gold tasselled pendant necklace.

Lily Cole: With the theme being punk, expected to see more than just two Vivienne Westwood gown on the red carpet. Her custom-made creation made entirely of Amazonian wild rubber to demonstrate the versatility of the natural material.

    Are you sure that is Brooklyn Decker and not Nicole kidman?

    • Juju May 8, 2013 at 00:04 #

      Nicole doesn’t stand like she’s about to pee for photos on a red carpet.

        +1

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

    Olivia Wilde for me.

    • Nat39 May 7, 2013 at 20:17 #

      …I agree, def. too blah for the event, but out of this bunch and the theme aside, she looks best imo, a chic sexy minimalist look.

  3. CreoleLady May 7, 2013 at 19:19 #

    OK, this is just incredible. I’m not talking about the looks, I’m talking about the fabulous non-stop blogging on this site. Thank you!

    • Kath May 7, 2013 at 19:28 #

      I concur! You are a wizard Catherine. We appreciate all your hard work so much!

  4. Danny May 7, 2013 at 19:23 #

    No Gisele?

    I actully quite liked her dress last night.

  5. DorianGray May 7, 2013 at 19:23 #

    Hoep to see a Donatella Versace’s post too. I think she translate very well the punk theme.
    ps. Can’t wait to read your Awards post :-)

    Are u sure this is Brooklyn decker and not Nicole Kidman?

    My favorite on this post is Leslie Mann. She looks fantastic.
    Olivia Wilde left me very underwhelmed. I understand and love minimalism but that is just plain and falls flat. The top is extremely unflattering, the accessories do nothing for her and her hair and makeup are just too casual. Even with a usual LBD formula she can do much better.

  8. Yeliz May 7, 2013 at 19:41 #

    My favourites are Brooklyn Decker, Olivia Wilde and Aubrey Plaza. Lily Cole looks horrendous.

  9. Moxie May 7, 2013 at 19:50 #

    Leslie Mann is “best of the rest” for me. She looks beautiful. Edgy but chic.

  10. Marybeth May 7, 2013 at 20:01 #

    Olivia Wilde looks good but a bit blah for this event. Perhaps a smokier eye and just a touch more lip color would have helped. Maybe some fierce earrings. I’m not sure.

    I like Emma Roberts’s look and appreciate her efforts at incorporating the theme. It may not be exciting but I think she looks very nice.

  11. sarah May 7, 2013 at 20:05 #

    where is donatella versace? she looked incredible.

  12. roxy May 7, 2013 at 20:33 #

    I love that Lily Cole stuck to the theme. I don’t like the colour of the dress but I think she works the theme well with the hair, shoes and shape of dress

  13. Pedro May 7, 2013 at 21:27 #

    I love Aubrey Plaza!

  14. EmmaWoodhouse May 7, 2013 at 23:20 #

    What craziness! I really like Leslie’s look and Felicity looks good as well. The rest were either too boring, or were TRAINWRECKS.

  15. Christine May 8, 2013 at 01:03 #

    I only like Aubrey Plaza and Giovanna looks.

  16. jake nevins May 8, 2013 at 01:24 #

    I think Giovanna Battaglia is in McQueen (from the bee collection), not D&G.

  17. Alina May 8, 2013 at 07:11 #

    Not feeling none of the looks.

  18. june May 8, 2013 at 11:02 #

    aubrey’s is very cool, and i too was expecting far more westwood gowns. there’s literally no designer out there who personifies punk more than vivienne westwood.

  19. Eliza May 8, 2013 at 12:52 #

    I love Giovanna’s look and how she incorporated the iconic punk safety pin into her hairdo, plus her dress is amazing. A nice modern interpretation.

    While for any other event, I’d be all what?? about Lily Cole’s dress & look, it’s perfect for this Met ball.

  20. Jess2 May 8, 2013 at 14:46 #

    Loving Olivia and Brooklyn!

  21. Amy May 8, 2013 at 17:49 #

    nothing blows me away here. They’re all passable

  22. Aline May 8, 2013 at 20:36 #

    Alicia and Maggie – really unflattering dresses.
    Leslie – even though the dress gives me a sense of deja vu, I still love it. She’s totally rocking it. Love the necklace.
    Felicity – she nailed it. I like her look a lot.
    Emma – black isn’t enough to make a look punk, but she does look super pretty.

    christina ricci and pixie were actually also in my top faves.
