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.

Hailee Steinfeld In Donna Karan Atelier – 2013 Met Gala

Hailee Steinfeld In Donna Karan Atelier - 2013 Met Gala

Hailee Steinfeld looked fierce on the red carpet of the 2013 Met Gala.

The sixteen-year-old ‘True Grit’ actress wore a tea length Donna Karan Atelier gown.

At first glance, the dress seems anything but punk, but if you look at the gold starbursts, they are actually made out of safety pins–the perfect mashup of high fashion and punk!

She accented her look with Jimmy Choo shoes and clutch and custom Eddie Borgo jewels.

Hailee’s fierce, green-accented cat eye is absolutely stunning and the perfect accent to this look, as is her wavy locks pulled to one side. She has completely nailed the ‘high fashion punk’ look, and I give her (and her stylists!) major props for this!

Hailee Steinfeld In Dolce & Gabbana – City Year Los Angeles’ Spring Break: Destination Education

Hailee Steinfeld In Dolce & Gabbana - City Year Los Angeles' Spring Break Destination Education

Hailee Steinfeld took to the red carpet at the City Year Los Angeles Spring Break: Destination Education event held at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California on Saturday, giving us our third Dolce & Gabbana look this weekend.

The young actress donned a green-bordeaux-black-and-white-striped crinkled silk organza dress, with a square neckline and defined waist leading into a full pleated skirt, from the Spring 2013 collection.

It’s a cute, youthful dress, which she styled with an oversized green Miu Miu clutch, two-tone green-and-black Marni Mary Jane pumps and a black manicure.

While I like this look, I would’ve loved to have seen some arm candy liven it up.

Coach 3rd Annual Evening Of Cocktails And Shopping To Benefit The Children’s Defense Fund

Coach Event 1

A bright crop of starlets turned out for the third annual Coach cocktail party and shopping event to benefit the Children’s Defense Fund, hosted by ‘Star Trek’ movie producer-director J.J. Abrams on the rooftop of his Bad Robot production company in Santa Monica, California on Wednesday. Coach clutches, handbags and totes proved to be the night’s hottest accessory, as many PYTs no doubt plucked up a new purse for their collections.

Chloe Sevigny: Always one to keep us guessing, the actress went for a rather girly approach in this printed Balenciaga dress that immediately had me wanting to fix that lopsided black bow at the waist. I also couldn’t get past the white tongue flap on those Balenciaga peep-toe shoes—or their mauve-purple colour that clashed with her coral-pink Coach clutch. An orange lippie proved another dissonant tone, although it matched the logo behind her.

Abigail Spencer: Donning a creamy DKNY Spring 2013 dress, the actress was chic and polished. She prevented sartorial boredom with a fuchsia handbag and melon-hued ankle-strap sandals. Loose waves and a glowing complexion finished off this breezy look.

Kate Mara: The ‘House of Cards’ star mixed masculine and feminine, showing a flash of skin in a Vena Cava sheer crop top with ruffled sleeve paired with black Parker peg pants and Brian Atwood’s ‘Wagner’ peep-toe heels. A Dannijo necklace was well-placed and added just the right amount of sparkle.

Hailee Steinfeld In Valentino – 2013 Vanity Fair Party

2013VanityFair_HaileeSteinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld joined a host of other PYTs at the 2013 Vanity Fair Oscars Party, hosted by editor Graydon Carter last night at the Sunset Tower in West Hollywood.

But her Valentino dress was neither pretty nor young.

The heavy leather gown, paired with a Jill Milan clutch, was a near sin for this actress. Her girlish figure was completely covered up from head to toe in overwrought fabric. I couldn’t get past that white bib either.

This is what ‘Little House on the Prairie’ goes goth looks like.

The undone updo didn’t help matters here either, although she really couldn’t have worn her hair down.

At the sweet age of 16, this bright-eyed starlet can do so much better.
