Amy Schumer In Zac Posen – 2017 Met Gala

Amy Schumer went head-to-head with the fashion elite at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The comedienne wore a custom Zac Posen gown sans any jewelry of any kind.

Oh, Amy, Amy, Amy. I want to like your approach to fashion. I really do. But once again, I just can’t get behind what you’re giving us!

I am quite frankly shocked that this is a Zac Posen gown. Time and again we’ve seen his masterful creations, but this is simply a mess. The sheen of the fabric makes it scream ‘garbage bag’, and while I typically love a good cape, the rose detailing just feels dated and uninspired.

Am I being too harsh on the Amy/Zac duo, or do you agree with my harsh criticism?

Michelle Monaghan In Paco Rabanne – 2017 Met Gala

Michelle Monaghan attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

She wore Paco Rabanne Fall 2017 gown with a Lee Savage clutch.

I am a huge fan of Michelle’s fashion choices, and this doesn’t change that one bit. She always seems to push the boundaries of fashion convention, but ever so slightly–nothing too shocking. This gown does the exact same, and is giving me major alien queen vibes, and that is a good thing in my book!

Pairing that chainmail-esque fabric with a simple and sleek chignon and understated makeup is superb.

Reese Witherspoon In Mugler – 2017 Met Gala

Reese Witherspoon hit the blue carpet of the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The A-Lister wore a custom Mugler gown, which, unfortunately ages her a bit. I would be thrilled to see this gown on Jane Fonda or Helen Mirren, but for Reese, it just feels really mature.

I do love the striking shade or blue, and the asymmetrical sleeve drama is quite visually stimulating.

Overall, this definitely doesn’t push the fashion envelope very hard, but considering how traditionally Reese typically dresses, I think we have to give her props for getting ever-so-slightly outrageous.

Nicki Minaj In H&M – 2017 Met Gala

Nicki Minaj went for broke at the 2017 Met Gala with a truly over-the-top look on Monday (May 1).

The singer wore a custom H&M gown, which left many people saying, really? H&M?

Here I have been complaining about people not leaning in to the night’s theme enough, and now we have Nicki, and I’m still not happy. There is just way too much going on here, and I find it to be very tastelessly executed.

The asymmetry, the kimono-inspired detailing, the beading, the train, the belt–I am super confused. Is she a super hero? A video game vixen? A lingerie model? It’s all too much, and I simply can’t stand it.

Let me hear from you: Am I being too harsh on this get-up?

Diane Kruger In Prada – 2017 Met Gala

Diane Kruger attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress and fashion lover wore a custom Prada gown accented with a gold bracelet and baby blue clutch.

Avant garde? No. Completely dramatic in its own rite? Most definitely. The gold beaded designs are really beautiful and whilst you cannot see it here, the back is sans beading and has a really fabulous draped detail.

I’m absolutely crazy about her choice of carrying a seemingly unrelated light blue clutch, and her makeup is perfection. Her radiant skin, light pink lips and flushed cheeks have her looking half her age.

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton – 2017 Met Gala

Jennifer Connelly attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress wore a Louis Vuitton dress with black boots and dramatic waterfall earrings.

Is this the point in the night where I start yelling ‘this isn’t avant garde’? Because this dress is really fabulous and fun for a hundred different occasions, but it’s simple too, well, simple for me to get on board with it for tonight’s grand affair.

While I feel the dress miss the night’s mark, those earrings, her red eyeshadow and super sleeked back hair are fabulous, and really causing me to question what fountain of youth Jennifer must have found!

So what do you think? Was this dress a good choice for tonight, or no?

Kate Bosworth In Tory Burch – 2017 Met Gala

Kate Bosworth dialed up the fashion drama at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

She actress wore a black Tory Burch gown with plenty of volume and structural elements.

I am typically obsessed with Kate’s style choices, but this one, I can’t get 100% behind. While I’m fairly certain there are some pretty cool design elements at work with this dress, the fabric and color simply don’t translate well to images, and I honestly can’t tell.

And while having a moment in-person is of course important, how a gown photographs is equally as important, and this reads quite flat–even in the face of so much apparent texture.

As for her beauty styling, no one pulls off a completely sleeked back bun quite like Kate, and her radiant skin, coral eyeshadow and bold raspberry lips are a dream–and the perfect look for a black gown.
