Elizabeth Olsen In Miu Miu – 2014 Met Gala

Elizabeth Olsen In Miu Miu - 2014 Met Gala

Elizabeth Olsen also attended the 2014 Met Gala, hosted this evening (May 5) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

In a sea of sweeping gowns, the starlet stood out for her head-to-toe Miu Miu look, eschewing a long dress in favour of a custom-designed pale blue mini, encrusted with heavy-handed crystal embroidery along the décolleté and sleeves.

In what can only be explained by the signature quirk of Miuccia Prada, Elizabeth paired the pastel frock with primary colours via red and yellow satin strappy sandals.

Not content to stop there, another strange, clashing tone was added via a metal-framed turquoise satin clutch.

While from the neck up, Elizabeth was rather lovely with her smokey mauve eye and red lip, the rest of the ensemble had about as much appeal as a figure-skating costume, which is to say, hardly any at all.

From the failed illusion nude neckline to the over-the-top glittery embellishment and the long sleeves that came to a diamond point at the hand, all this look was missing was a pair of ice skates.

    Belongs on a ice skater ring

    I just don’t understand how someone thinks of the Met Gala and comes up with this it makes no sense. She is such a pretty girl and nothing about this look works.

    It’s an ice skating costume. Horrid dress and accessories.

    A tragic figure skating nightmare! She is already at the top of the worst-dressed list.

    Sad. She looks sad and the dress makes her look bloated. I don’t understand the color/accessory choices at all.

    Definitely an ice-skating costume and a bit of a mess styling wise.

    Very ice skater-ish.

    Lovely neck up.

    is she pregnant? why does she look so uncomfortable with her body?

    • Sofia May 6, 2014 at 10:31 #

      It really looks like she’s pregnant

    Bad. Bad. Bad. I agree with another comment that it looks like she’s an ice skater. Totally not Met worthy, completely unflattering and ugly.

    Not the best she’s looked, thats for sure. I do like the baby blue colour though.

    I adore Lizzie…she’s beautiful but this is horrible. She really needs to start taking tips from her sisters on how to pull together a memorable red carpet look.

    This theme is not hard to follow, so why are so many bombing it? This is TERRIBLE. Ice dancer, not Met Gala.

    I love Lizzie, but this is horrid. I’m not laying the blame with her but with MiuMiu and her stylist Cher Coulter (who had 4 epic fails last night, Upton, Nicole Richie, Lizzie & Rosie) who thought this was even close to being appropriate? She’s got the Godzilla promo coming up too, hopefully she’ll have a new stylist because I can’t believe anyone was paid to put this look together

    You covered my sentiments about the dress so I’m not going to talk about it.
    But in what world does that pair of shoes and that clutch belong to the same outfit?

    I agree, unfortunately. First thing that also came to my mind was, “ice skating costume.”
