Minka Kelly In Carolina Herrera – 2013 Met Gala

MinkaKellyCarolinaHerrera1

Minka Kelly hit the red carpet at this evening’s Met Gala in New York City with a vampy take on the fundraiser’s ‘PUNK: Chaos to Couture’ theme.

The actress stunned in a Carolina Herrera Fall 2013 design with a high-neck, long-sleeved gown cinched at the waist with a geometric belt.

The mix of delicate lace and tough-girl beaded texture at the neckline perfectly complimented the dark purple hue of the dress.

Minka finished off her punked look with a dark lip colour, winged eyeliner, and a braided updo topped with hair jewels.

    I can’t quite put my finger on it, but i really do not like this look. Maybe it’s the colour, or the belt?

      She is not tall or thin enough for this dress.

    I really don’t like this dress! Pink under purple is not such a nice combination, and the beading on the shoulder is like adding insult to injury!

      +1 And I’m quite sure that the other element that’s messing up this look is the lipstick color.

        So dull.

    This look ages her about 20 years. Thumbs down.

      Agreed. And I really don’t like a pink underlay with purple lace.

    This dress does nothing for her shape. its too high and closed up. Its the type of dress that looks good on someone tall and thin with no boobs.

      This is exactly what I thought. I love this dress and was excited to see who would eventually wear it but it is not the right dress for Minka.

    • Aline May 7, 2013 at 01:33 #

      Agreed!

    • dee May 7, 2013 at 16:44 #

      I agree.

    • Michelle May 7, 2013 at 18:43 #

      I agree. She has too much body for this dress. And at first glance, I thought this was Leighton Meester.

    The gown isn’t working well for her, it stumpifies her, somehow made me think of Berenice Marlohe who often ended up looking short and stumpy in gowns despite not being short.

    • Kate May 7, 2013 at 01:47 #

      Exactly. It’s all wrong for her body shape. Only models like the one on the runway can wear this without looking like a sausage.
      Though I’m not too keen on the pink/purple combination anyway.

    I think Minka looks beautiful from the neck up. The dress isn’t pretty so there was no saving that.

    UGH! I thought I’d love all the CH looks tonight but this horror is proving me wrong! Pink and purple? So musty looking here…the whole look is really bad. I despise the sheer front, the lace overlay, the stiff shoulders… I like her hair and makeup but that is IT. One of the worst dressed so far.

    I’m just surprised Minka was there since she is not the high profile caliber guest…

    The dress is gorgeous on its own, but it could use a better fit, specially the sleeves and the upper body. From the waist up the dress accentuates her saggy boobs, and there’s too much purple all around – terrible syling. The make up emphasizes some work she’s done to her face. Is it just me or do her eyes look almost asian-like?!

    I think she looks great and she’s one of the best I’ve seen so far.

    shouldve worn her hair down in tussled waves, I wouldve loved it… wouldve been up there in look, but the way it is is, its like you are suppose to wear a dress, a dress shouldnt wear u

  12. Moxie May 7, 2013 at 16:08 #

    I prefer the model’s embellished belt, which ties in with the embellished shoulders.

  13. Bernadette May 8, 2013 at 21:18 #

    I would LOVE this — if Rooney Mara had worn it!

  14. SI May 10, 2013 at 18:48 #

    LOVE IT! SHE DID PUNK REALLY good without having to go all outside of her comfort zone
