  • asherlev1

    I don’t understand. No Emmy Rossum?!!

  • irina

    SJParker and Madonna all the way!

  • Quinn

    Anne Hathaway all the way baby!!!

    Others that I really like are Emmy Rossum, Rooney Mara, Cara Delevingne and Blake Lively. All in all, I like his year MET compare to last year.

    LOL to those that are asking where’s madonna? I mean, sure she was on theme but to be on best dress list when there are soo many more deserving look, i don’t think so.

    Anyway, I would like to say many thanks to you FC for an awesome coverage!!

  • Cynthia Allan (@cynallan)

    where is beyonce

  • ash

    Um my favorite is Taylor Swift but she’s not even here…I don’t get Hathaway’s look at all,she dressed like a hooker. My vote goes to Rooney Mara.

    • ash

      *plus* and Nina Dobrev and Jessica Pare. It’s a shame that they didn’t make it to your poll 🙁

  • Sammy C

    1. SJP
    2. Anne Hathaway
    3. Uma Thurman
    4. Nicole Richie
    5. Cameron Diaz
    6. JLo
    7. Miley Cyrus
    8. Amber Heard
    9. Elisabeth Banks
    10. Florence Welch

    To me these had the perfect blend of getting what the MET Gala is about, as well as getting the Punk Chaos to Couture memo, -except Uma and Amber Heard, but their personalities and gowns are enough punk for me to make it to my top- aswell as being true to themselves.

    Anne Hathaway, risk that absolutely paid off.

    Gwen Stefani… Should have been on my top 3! This was her and Gavin’s event! I did like what she wore, just as much as I wished shed gone all out. So on the fence with her.

  • Yeliz

    Well, the half of my personal favourites aren’t on this poll either, but here is my Top 10:

    1. Sienna Miller in Burberry (decided to make her my best dressed, she was totally event appropriate and I totally loved that look)
    2. Kristen Stewart in Stella McCartney
    3. Nina Dobrev in Monique Lhuillier
    4. Amanda Seyfried in Givenchy
    5. Amber Heard in Emilio Pucci
    6. Cameron Diaz in Stella McCartney
    7. Rooney Mara in Givenchy
    8. Jessica Pare in Jason Wu
    9. Anne Hathaway in Valentino Couture
    10. Jessica Biel in Giambattista Valli

  • Beta

    OMG cant decide :S!!
    I finally voted SJP for bringing the over the top fabulousness plus punk
    but agree with the current winner Anne Hathaway! MAJOR surprise there, kudos to Anne and Valentino
    Uma Thurman looks AMAZING, Im def going to vote her for BDOTY
    and Naomi Harris, breathtaking, that purple hue with degrade feathers is amazing
    really enjoyed the coverage FC 🙂 thanks !

  • Cara, Diane and Cameron. They respected the theme without overdoing. They all look amazing.

  • Marko_M

    Wow, this matches my opinion in a big way. My top five were: SJP, Cameron, Sienna, Blake and Kristen with honorary mention of Anne, Miley, Madonna, Christina Ricci and Ashley Olsen for the daring and cool looks.
    My number 1 was decided during the live stream – SJP. A look to remember.

  • Alina

    On theme best dressed: Diane Kruger.
    Not on theme best dressed: Uma Thurman.

  • Sanette

    My favourite – Nina Dobrev is not in the poll. Oh well.

  • Shelby

    Missing Jennifer Lawrence on this poll! It might not have followed theme, but I thought she looked flawless!

  • Marybeth

    Of these, my pick is Diane Kruger in Chanel. She managed to work the theme with her choker, chain bracelets, fierce clutch, and pink hair tips while still maintaining her characteristic elegance. Very clever, very subtle, very effective, and very beautiful.

    So many interesting looks both on and off this poll!

  • Alicat

    Equal first to Sarah Jessica Parker and Anne Hathaway. Honourable mentions to Miley Cyrus, Paloma Faith, Sienna Miller, Gwen Stefani and Christina Ricci. Also Madonna for really going with the theme. I have not included any who didn’t embrace the theme.

  • Suz

    Voted for Cara Delevingne, but she was my second choice. Christina Ricci was definitely my best dressed!

  • flor


    • Nat

      i agree

  • TL

    My favorites are: SJP, Karolina Kurkova, Anja Rubik, Anne Hathaway and Rooney Mara. (and I voted for Rooney)

    It’s a tough poll because some of the stars who dressed “punk” looks terrible, and those who dressed pretty gets a safe but boring pass. Everyone has different opinion towards their favorites so it’s really hard to figure out who should or shouldn’t be on the poll.

    So, please don’t ask question like “why is xxx not on the poll” and give FC a break.

    Ps. Thanks for your EXCELLENT coverage FC, and get some rest.

  • renap

    how come January Jones isnt on the list? She is the most interesting, raw and punk!

  • Henrique

    My favourites were Miley, Florence and Anja. My vote here goes to Sienna.

  • Gabby M

    Anne Hathaway by a long shot! I will always remember this look… it in the memory vault, just working it! I want that dress!!!

  • Bré

    MADONNA! 🙂

  • andy

    Where is Nina Dobrev!!!!

  • dunzoo

    Paloma Faith and Christina Ricci. Both were theme appropriate, fun, and playful. But I’m biased since I prefer quirky girls and find the conventional fashionistas/it-girls incredibly boring.

  • Derro

    Out of those listed, SJP by far. But I am very surprised to not see Christina Ricci here.

  • justme

    lol I knew this MET poll was going to cause outrage. There were far too many looks to chose from and so many polarized opinions as well.
    Kudos though, Catherine. You deserve some sleep.

    From the ladies listed, Rooney is the one I voted for.

    My personal favourites were Emmy Rossum and Nina Dobrev though.

    • Rashmi

      Lol ya, even I had assumed this, since there were so many looks this year Met!
      Anyways, people should understand that not everyone will have same opinions!

      My pick was easily Anne!! She rocked and punked it !!!

      Thanks FC and others for such a wonderful coverage!! 🙂

      • Rashmi

        I am also curious to know, who is your fav FC ? 😉

  • Vic

    Cara followed by Sarah Jessica Parker. Great coverage FC ! Take a break before Cannes!!

  • Prudence

    Uma,Naomi and Blake should not be on here at all. This is the Met ball not the golden globes so everyone that is not event appropriate should never be mentioned as some of the best of the night. Also Dree Hemmingway wasnt featured but she looked amazing and I wish she was on here.

    • Derro

      Completely agree. Uma, Naomi and Blake are NOT event-appropriate, I am shocked to see them shortlisted over so many other stunning (and actually ON theme) looks!

      • towanda


        • towanda

          i voted Sarah Jessica Parker runner up Nina Dobrev .

    • michaboa

      I agree with you about Dree Hemingway.

    • Beta

      agree, though Uma and Naomi look positively fantastic, and they are on my BDOTY list already, for this poll Ill vote Anne or SJP

    • Shantal

      Agree 1000%.

    • Cascia

      Agree 100%

  • Christine

    Sarah Jessica Parker. Followed by Anne Hathaway.

  • Parvati

    I would have liked to see Florence Welch in this poll, but my vote goes to Sienna Miller. She looked perfect and into theme! My second vote would go to Anne Hathaway.

  • P.

    ANNE HATHAWAY… punk-chic at its best!! The hair was the icing on the cake!!! Simply amazing

    • dee

      +10000. She killed it. She looked fantastic.

  • Surprised to see Uma Thurman and Naomi Harris here. I thought their looks were boring (compared to others in this list) Surprised not to see Nina Dobrev and Madonna here. (I think they stood out from the crowd while remaining fashionable.) Oh well, let’s just hope they get included in BDOTW 🙂

  • Adrian

    Why are Jennifer Lawrence and Hailee Steinfeld missing here? They should have made the cut! Also Taylor Swift’s look was amazing.

  • Nat39

    Joining the corus…missing Jessica Pare (my personal fave), Nina Dobrev, some others…I’d replace quite a few looks in this poll but of course I understand it’s impossible to please everyone.

    Voting for SJP who fully embodied the ‘Chaos to Couture’ theme and did it with a good fashion sense, it was a major standout look at the event, kudos to her for rocking it (even though can’t say that I loved it but I do appreciate what she did there).
    Cara for the models.

    The biggest disappointment for me was Karolina. I expected to be wowed by her of all people yet she delivered an average forgettable look. Kudos to Anne for bringing some major attitude but it’s one hideous tacky gown.
    Didn’t get the excitement about Cameron, she totally missed the mark imo – it would be a great look on someone like Sheikha Mozah, I can totally picture it on her with her turban and proper belt, she would look appropriately regal and sophisticated whereas on Cameron it was just aging, severe, and wrong imo.

    Special shoutout to JLo for that hair.
    Overall I’m rather disappointed.

  • Betelgeuze

    No Nina Dobrev nor Emmy Rossum? 🙁
    I know that cutting down the choice is difficult, but I hoped that if anything ever deserved a third row it’s Met Gala…

  • Amanda

    Nina, but because it’s not an option i’ll have to go with Diane

  • Charlotte

    sad hailee steinfield, nina dobrev and kate bosworth weren’t included here because they were some of my favourites! when for diane though, she was punky but still so elegant, beautiful!

    thanks for all the coverage FC, it was better than everr!!

  • Anissa

    No Nina or Emmy? Shame, though Anne really wore her full look with confidence!

    • +1 they were both my best dressed, they combined punk & couture in the most elegant way, can’t believe they’re not in the poll…

    • Tahlia

      I agree.. they were the only two worth voting for in my opinion.

  • jujunye

    I loved Cara, Emma Watson and NINA DOBREV… why is nina not in the list ? 🙁

    • Nat

      yeah nina was amazing

  • Aline

    Judging by the amount of replies on Nina’s post, I’m really surprised she didn’t make the cut. But oh well… Anne and Naomi are my runners up. I’ll probably vote for Anne.

    IMO this year was much better than the last one, I loved a lot of looks.

    • Gabby M

      I agree nina shouldve been on there, because she was my personal 2nd

      • Marta

        I agree. I was planning to vote for Nina Dobrev.

        • Coco

          Agreed, my 2nd favourite!

    • Arina

      I also wanted to vote for Nina. 🙁 Was sure she was going to be on here. Now, I don’t really know. 🙁

  • SJP all the way, shes my queen !

  • wer

    paloma faith was my best dressed. i also miss jennifer lawrence here.

  • Aparajita

    Loved Cara’s look!

    • Angie

      +1 Her look was the perfect match of punk and couture. And her attitude makes the rest.

    • Brazilian fan

      she was the best for me

  • Fashion Maven

    Nicole Richie is the only one who matched Ann Hathaway!

  • Tiye

    I loved watching the the fashion! I think Madonna and Jennifer Lawerence were looking fierce!!

  • moonbeam

    I LOVED Naomi, Anne Hathaway, Sienna, Blake and Emma’s looks. Great choices.

  • EmmaWoodhouse

    Top 5 of the night (in no particular order): Diane Kruger, Ginnifer Goodwin, Naomie Harris, Hailee Steinfeld, and Bee Shaffer.
    On this list I voted for Diane, but other looks here that I like include Cameron, Sienna, and Uma (mostly). However, I was less enamored of SJP’s dress when I saw that her boots were THIGH-HIGH and the split went up way too high. I still appreciate the drama, though.
    Not a lot of punk, but I think there were some pretty great looks!
    Thank you to FC, Emily, Melissa, Rachel, and Jeremy (was that everyone who helped? Sorry if I missed anyone!) for the amazing coverage.

  • Cass

    where’s Madonna? the only one who was on theme

    • Kathy

      What about Miley Cyrus, Christina Ricci, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Morrison, or Jaime King? They weren’t on theme?

    • moonbeam

      Siena Miller and Christina Ricci definitely fit the theme. Actually, looking back, I’m really disappointed in what Gwen Stefani wore. Isn’t she supposed to be the walking embodiment of “punk”??

    • Kat

      Also missing Christina Ricci, Miley Cirus, Paloma Faith and Lily Cole.

    • Vic

      Madonna was a mess for me.

  • Kathy

    Taylor Swift was my best dressed. She managed to incorporate punk influences into her gown but didn’t look trashy or costumey. She stepped out of her comfort zone a lot, and the risk paid off. I’m surprised she’s not on the poll.

    • MaddyEliza

      I agree with you completely. Very disappointed. Although Cameron Diaz was my best dressed, Taylor was a very clos second and absolutely deserved a spot here.

    • Aiyu

      I agree. She should have been included in the poll.

    • Beta

      Taylor Swift looked amazing yes, not my best dressed (SJP), but she did bring it

    • melyd

      i agree!

    • Rosanna

      You are SO right.

    • Brazilian fan

      I agree she was stuning…

    • Florencia

      I agree with you. Taylor Swift should´ve been included in this list

  • Kate

    Whoa, I vote and all of a sudden it’s a 100% for Diane 🙂 Guess I’m the first vote…that’s never happened before!
