Models @ The 2013 Met Gala

Model @ The 2013 Met Gala

Here is a roundup of the models who took to the red carpet at the 2013 Met Gala on Monday night.

Cara Delevingne: Wearing Burberry, the British model nailed the theme, working a studded navy column dress with a plunging neckline. Her part-braided ‘do and studded clutch perfected her look. She was easily one of the best on the night.

Gisele Bundchen: The model wore an Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2013 black mini dress with revealing grommet detailing. You slammed Gwyneth for wearing a gown with sheer sides; does Gisele get a pass?

Karlie Kloss: I never thought I would say this about Karlie: she looks frumpy. Ever since she chopped off her locks she has lost her mojo. This Louis Vuitton granny-chic look ages her about 40 years. Betty White would look better in this frock.

Model @ The 2013 Met Gala 2

Doutzen Kroes: The model wore a Theyskens’ Theory gown sculpted from quilted leather featuring a silk-organza inner skirt, which she styled with Lynn Ban jewels.

Joan Smalls: Had Tom Ford not been present at Joan’s side, I would’ve easily mistaken her Tom Ford sheer lace gown for an Emilio Pucci one. I hope the blonde extensions are for one night only.

Model @ The 2013 Met Gala 3

Linda Evangelista: I found myself totally confused by Linda’s choice for this event. Her Marchesa grey gown encrusted with crystal detailing would’ve been great had this been a medieval-themed event, but I don’t get punk from this at all. Harry Winston jewels and Rapunzel hair completed her look.

Kate Upton: The model wore a custom jade-green DVF gown with a DVF clutch and DVF for H. Stern jewels.

Hilary Rhoda: Wes Gordon was her designer of choice; she wore a gold lace top with black leather pants with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.

Models at the Met 5

Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann: The model’s Prabal Gurung high-shine dual-colour gown wasn’t my favourite. Maybe it’s because it brought back some memories of Coco Rocha’s vintage Givenchy look from last year’s event. She accessorized with Chopard jewels.

Anja Rubik: Like Gisele, Anja also wore a Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2013 look with Chopard jewels. She was one of my favourite models, wearing a red leather mini dress with grommet detailing paired with Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

Constance Jablonski: She also wore Wes Gordon, opting for something more dramatic wearing a scene-stealing metallic-gold-and-black gown with leather harness detailing. The hair and the dress are not working together.

Models at the Met 6

Chanel Iman: Joining the trend to part-braid her hair, Chanel wore a striped J Mendel strapless dress with asymmetrical draped detailing.

Dree Hemingway: I love this unaffected look. Wearing a head-to-toe look from the Stella McCartney Fall 2013 collection, this is a more subtle way to work a punk look. Her long-sleeved silk dress was styled with a biker jacket, Stella McCartney wooden clutch and those platform heels from the same collection.

Karen Elson: This gold gown is everything. It would’ve been very easy for Karen to work a punk look; however, she opted for glamour, and you can’t get more glamorous than a fringed gold gown. I would’ve loved Carey Mulligan to have worn this look.

    I couldn’t agree more about Karlie… This was a terrible effort.
    I’m surprised you didn’t say more about Doutzen; I thought she looked beautiful.

    • Catherine Kallon May 7, 2013 at 21:30 #

      Forgive me. I have had 2 hours sleep in 48 hours

        Even though I agree that Giselle’s dress is amazing, and she looks pretty fantastic, I can’t get past the fact that she is clearly not wearing underwear with a dress that short and sheer. Yuck!!!

        • Fernanda May 8, 2013 at 01:42 #

          she was wearing underwear! if you look closely you can see a liiitle white stripe

        • Christine May 8, 2013 at 02:08 #

          She looks smashing hot! Love her the most followed by Cara.

        • Beta May 8, 2013 at 08:22 #

          +1 yess, she’s almost showing her erm :P

    • Brazilian fan May 8, 2013 at 02:21 #

      Gisele it’s just perfect,so beautiful,everithing on her is amazing,that dress is very sexy and a kind of punk to me….GO GI BRASIL TE AMA!!!

  3. Nat39 May 7, 2013 at 20:14 #

    Doutzen Kroes easily.

    • Nat39 May 7, 2013 at 21:56 #

      she looks modern and fashion-forward while being on theme.

  4. jo May 7, 2013 at 20:19 #

    Loving Anja, Joan and Doutzen. Cara Delevingne look would’ve been great if it weren’t for the clutch.

  5. kathryn May 7, 2013 at 20:20 #

    Cara Delevingne was one of my favorites of the evening. I thought she nailed the theme but brought a fierceness and elegance to it. Anja Rubik just looks like a badass! I love it!

  6. Angie May 7, 2013 at 20:21 #

    Cara Delevingne looked amazing! She is my best dressed of the event.

    • VIc May 7, 2013 at 20:53 #

      +1 She is my best dressed too!

    • Rosanna May 8, 2013 at 00:33 #

      +2 agreed

      • Elaine May 8, 2013 at 11:43 #

        +3 – I was waiting and waiting for your post on Cara FC,
        superb coverage as always, thanks so much

  7. Yeliz May 7, 2013 at 20:28 #

    Doutzen Kroes looks outstanding. I love everything about her look. I also like Karen’s gold gown.

    A big NO to Karlie Kloss and Linda Evangelista. What were they thinking?

  8. vicky May 7, 2013 at 20:28 #

    Cara for sure, one of the best dressed at this event!
    Giselle looks so uncomfortable and no wonder when she’s almost doing a Paris Hilton (showing everything). In ever pucture I’ve seen of her, her knees are together and it looks like she need to use the ladies room.
    Doutzen is OK.
    Looks like someone played a prank with Linda’s invitation, changing punk to medieval.
    Kate and Maggie Gyllenhaal should have made a stop at Victoria’s secrets before turning up to sort out their ladies.
    Extra credit to Dree for nailing the theme, one of the very few who did.
    The rest is just meh..

  9. roxy May 7, 2013 at 20:28 #

    Where’s Alice Dellal when you want her eh?

  10. KC May 7, 2013 at 20:32 #

    It looked like something happened to the back of Gisele’s dress, on her butt, on the side without the paneling (where she’s got her hand on her hip in this pic). She posed in such a way to cover it up, and I noticed even Tom would stand in the back of her sometimes and cover it with his hand. Anybody see what it was?

  11. Aparajita May 7, 2013 at 21:10 #

    Cara was my favorite at this event.
    I can’t believe someone would design that for Karlie, she’s young and the dress is unflattering, aging and horrible.

  12. C May 7, 2013 at 21:10 #

    Where is Liu Wen???? Along with Rooney Mara, she was indubitably one of the best dressed of the night!

  13. Pedro May 7, 2013 at 21:19 #

    Gisele looks PERFECT!
    Really sexy with the punk approach. BDOTW for sure!

    The always annoying Cara looks really good… finally

  14. Octo May 7, 2013 at 21:32 #

    Arggg so ugly look for Anja! She looks like a 80′s bit..
    Same idea for Gisele… but 90′s one!
    Who is this Vaccarelo?
    Feminity doesn’t mean vulgarity! and so already seen: old Versace!

    Anyway one thing is sure: it’s not because you are working in fashion and furthermore when you are a model that’s you know how to get dressed!

  15. Emma May 7, 2013 at 22:19 #

    I’m so glad that you wrote about Cara because she was gorgeous! Both chiс and punk
    Absolutely the best dressed along with Miller

  16. jess May 7, 2013 at 22:33 #

    where’s liu wen?? for me she was bressed dressed of the night

  17. jess May 7, 2013 at 22:36 #

    best dressed*

  18. Quinn May 7, 2013 at 22:41 #

    Constance is just too sweet for her dress. a bit of an attitude and an edgy styling could take that look to a whole different level.

    Karlie oh karlie. she looked so out of place with that dress.

    My fav is cara and gisele!!

  19. Sharon May 7, 2013 at 23:24 #

    Unlike everyone else, I loved Karlie’s dress – just not on her. I’m not quite as old as Betty White, but I’d love to wear it. I also liked Elettra’s dress. Very 60s – the age I’d still prefer to live in. :)

    • Sharon May 7, 2013 at 23:27 #

      I meant to thank you, FC, for another marvelous marathon of fashion. I don’t know how you do it – even with help. You are a treasure.

      • Catherine Kallon May 8, 2013 at 00:18 #

        thank you…..I hope all is well x

  20. EmmaWoodhouse May 7, 2013 at 23:25 #

    Linda is my favorite, even though she’s so off-theme! I love this diaphonous look!
    Chanel worked the theme, I think…I would have liked Cara’s look with a high neckline. I really don’t like anyone else; the Vaccarello looks are particularly tacky.

  21. Prudence May 7, 2013 at 23:57 #

    Gisele looks amazing ! and i adoreee Joan smalls as well !!! Doutzen was also unbelievable omg one of the best!! Cara, Gisele, Doutzen and Joan were deffs in my top 10 of the night!

  22. Teleholic May 8, 2013 at 03:11 #

    Catherine, thank you so much for putting in all this effort. It’s taken you so far and it always makes my day just a little bit better.

  23. Adrian May 8, 2013 at 03:15 #

    chanel & giselle. ‘Nuff said!

  24. From Russia With Love May 8, 2013 at 03:52 #

    Hello, Catherine. If u r interested – Karen Elson said she is wearing gold McQueen gown and was going to wear Saint Laurent for the after-party.

    • From russia with love May 8, 2013 at 05:21 #

      Oops, my mistake. In my head i confused McQueen with McDonald. The dress is Julien McDonald Fall 2013

  25. Alina May 8, 2013 at 07:03 #

    Cara, Gisele and Doutzen are my favourites here.

  26. Agatelka May 8, 2013 at 07:36 #

    And what about Coco Rocha? I would want to know what do you think about her stylisation.
    I think that Anja has rocked the theme. Also Joan, Doutzen and Cara are pretty okay.
    Karlie and Linda – I will leave these without any comment.

    • jacks7123 May 8, 2013 at 17:51 #

      Where’s Coco? I like her look.

  27. june May 8, 2013 at 10:52 #

    gisele looks amazing but her dress is so short i’m afraid that if she leant back half an inch we’d see her gisele as well.

  28. TeaAtTwo May 8, 2013 at 13:39 #

    Doutzen is easily my favourite here. Followed by Anja, Karen, Dree, Hilary and Cara. I think the Alexander Wang dress Gisele wore to the 2010 gala was punk than her dress this year.

  29. adrianna May 8, 2013 at 14:16 #

    Gisele gets a pass because she was wearing underware

    • adrianna May 8, 2013 at 14:17 #

      *underwear

  30. oksana May 8, 2013 at 17:29 #

    ANJA!!

  31. Amy May 8, 2013 at 17:54 #

    Cara gets a virtual hi5 for getting it right and sticking to the theme.
    Chanel looks divine
    Doutzen also looks great
    Joan looks good but the dress is giving me a serious deja-vu
    Gisele is not doing it for me. I wish the dress was a gown with the same elements.

  32. Aline May 8, 2013 at 20:24 #

    Gisele was a disappointment. Her dress is way more slutty than punk. No me gusta.

    Doutzen was one of my favorites of the night, along with Cara. Joan and Karen looked good too.

  33. Jess2 May 9, 2013 at 11:55 #

    I kind of think the models were a little bit of a let down. Doutzen and Joan are the best here, followed by Gisele.
