Dramatic Eyes At The Met Gala: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Dramatic Eyes At The Met Gala The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Dramatic eyes were a big trend at last night’s Met Gala, and while some were absolutely stunning, others completely missed the mark. Everyone might not agree with me here, but I really feel that you can do punk and look attractive while doing it. Case in point, these three lovely ladies:

Good:
Hailee Steinfeld’s eyes were total showstoppers last night. Her green and black cat-eyed look was edgy but beautiful, and totally punk-esque.

Another real winner was the always-flawless Diane Kruger. Her silvery gray smokey eyes almost had an ombré effect, with the lightest silver at the inner corners and the darkest at the outer corners. Gorgeous!

And finally, we have Nina Dobrev, who sported an intensely winged upper lid and a silver-lined lower lid. Very high-fashion punk!

Bad:
You have to give Elle Fanning props for having fun, but her winged electric blue and pink eyeshadow is more little girl playing dress-up than fashion’s biggest night.

As for January Jones, her look reads far more alien warrior than punk! The disconnected triangular shape of her liner is quite harsh, and coupled with the grayed out eyebrows, she looks a little creepy.

Ugly:
Ginnifer Goodwin is always a fashion and beauty risk-taker, but this one simply did not pay off. The heavy black shadow from lash to brow, along with the heavily shaded brow may be daring, but it’s also unfortunate. The only place this look belongs is on a raccoon.

Ginnifer Goodwin in Tory Burch – 2013 Met Gala

Ginnifer Goodwin is never one to shy away from expressing herself through fashion. And at Monday night’s Met Gala in New York City, the ‘Once Upon a Time’ actress hit the red carpet illustrating the event’s ‘PUNK: Chaos to Couture’ theme through her own eyes.

Shimmering in gold sequins thanks to Tory Burch, Ginnifer’s gown tamed the gilded glamour with a leather trim neckline and a black tulle hem.

The leather waistband whittled the actress’s waist to show off her figure while the rest of her look paid homage to the punk era.

Turning her normally cute pixie cut into a messy, bedhead style, Ginnifer focused on her eyes with a look that was 100% punk: heavy lash-to-brow black eye shadow and defined brows.

Ginnifer styled her red carpet look with heels and a box clutch also by Tory Burch and an ever so punk pewter earring in only one ear.

What do you think of her look: spot on, or too punk around the eyes?

Ginnifer Goodwin In Monique Lhuillier – 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Ginnifer Goodwin In Monique Lhuillier - 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Ginnifer Goodwin joined a host of beautiful stars who took to the red carpet for the 2013 Vanity Fair Party on Sunday evening, held at the Sunset Tower in Hollywood, California.

Sporting sultry smoky eyes, the actress wore a Monique Lhuiller Spring 2013 dress.

Her ocean-blue pearlized shell structured dress was styled with black Jimmy Choo ‘Deny’ sandals and a gold bracelet.

While Ginnfer’s pose feels quite stiff and awkward (but’s what’s new?), I love both the colour and the fresh youthful feel of this look.

In a sea of gowns, she was a breath of fresh air.

Ginnfier Goodwin In Misha Nonoo – 15th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards

Ginnfier Goodwin In Misha Nonoo - 15th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards

Ginnifer Goodwin sported a rare floor-length look while attending the 15th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in California yesterday evening.

The lady in red donned a Misha Nonoo cap-sleeved gown with sheer organza inserts in the skirt.

I didn’t like the look at first, probably because I’m not used to this silhouette on Ginnifer, but it quickly grew on me. Mostly because the length is just perfect, as is the choice of accessories, which included nude Christian Louboutin pumps and a matching Roger Vivier clutch.

Opting to keep the jewels simple, by sporting just a Cartier bracelet, and simple makeup was the perfect way to allow this dress to shine.

Ginnifer Goodwin In Misha Nonoo – Listerine 21 Day Challenge Kick-Off

Ginnifer Goodwin In Misha Nonoo - Listerine 21 Day Challenge Kick-Off

Ginnifer Goodwin attended the Listerine 21 Day Challenge Kick-Off in New York City on Tuesday.

The ‘Once Upon a Time’ actress rocked an adorable blue short suit from the Misha Nonoo Spring 2013 collection.

Her blue blazer with matching shorts, which featured white piping, showed off her perfectly toned legs while she flashed a smile to the photographers.

I love the pretty patterned blouse underneath, so I wish Ginnifer had unbuttoned the blazer, and the look feels very ‘first-day-back-at-school’ the way she’s presented it.

Sporting a fresh-faced barely-there makeup look, the finishing touch was simple black Jimmy Choo ‘Cosmic’ pumps.
