Met Ball Fugs and Fabs: Pinks


Typing the headline of this post made me realize we haven’t seen Pink around much lately. Which is neither here nor there, but remember that time she hung from the rafters and sang a song perfectly while twirling around in a cloth and wearing a nude bodysuit bedecked with white tape? Good times. Thanks for the memories.

    Heather, please add Mutant Fleshpile to your band name list.

    I actually like Juliana’s. Although it could be because she actually looks her age and not like her mom.

    From the thumbnail, I thought the picture of Amber where she has her hand on the guys should was actually her, with a bird perched on her finger. I think I need more coffee.

    I think Pink is on the cover of Cosmo. I’m guessing she’s chilling out and enjoying new motherhood.

    I don’t like any of these. Julianne’s looks like her strapless bra is showing, Paula’s does nothing for her, and I’d like Amber’s better without the bedspread and the tan.

      I’m not a fan of any of these things either. They’re too structured, too shiny, too tortured and too stiff. I particularly hate that Zac Posen (I assume) thing A.Heard is wearing.

    I’m not a fan of any of these pink dresses. And I love pink.

    Amber Heard is a knockout in that dress, and I looove that berry-stained pink.

    Nothing to see here.

    The last photo I saw of Pink was a pap photo of her grocery shopping or something with her adorable tyke. And she looked healthy and like a normal new mother instead of someone desperately trying to get herself into a sheer bedazzled ball gown with a train of feathers a few weeks after giving birth …. ahem. Where was I going? Oh yes. I liked Pink in her grocery-shopping photo more than I like any of these dresses. Pretty girls, but none of these dresses does anything for me.

    I have a thing — and I’m not sure how to explain it — but I have a thing where I don’t like structure that doesn’t wrap around or cup the boobage. Like the second chick — she has those pointy things that look like boob lapels… I don’t like that. It makes me think that there are metal plates behind the fabric or something. There probably are.

    I don’t know why I have this thing. I just do. The chestal portion of dresses should kind of wrap around the boobal area, not stick out stiffly. Obviously this kind of structure is very common, but I really, really can’t get past it. Help?

      Yeah, you aren’t the only one who doesn’t like it. It looks massively uncomfortable and I hate to think how much adhesive is required to hold those things in place. I prefer clothes that flatter the human form rather than torture it.

    I don’t like any of these. Julianne’s is closest, but it looks like her bra is showing, which is an insane design choice.
    In the next to last pic, is Amber Heard hugging a man in a RED VELVET TUX? Did Satan get invited to the Met Ball?

      That’s Zac Posen. Maybe he’s the Satan of dress designers? He and Stella make some ugly schmatta, that’s for sure.

    I think Amber Heard is ridiculously gorgeous. Even in pap photos of her walking her dog she’s dressed tres chic. This pink dress, however, is not the look. And plz lay off the bronzer, you don’t need it (no one does, honestly).

    I’ll be honest I dont think that last pink dress fits her well at all.

    I LOVE Julianna’s dress… so old Hollywood. I do wish the black lining thing at the top was removed or represented somewhere else on the dress, but otherwise j’adore!

    Amber’s dress is beautiful, its the ghastly bronzer and lip color that are clashing with it I think…..

    Eh, all of the pink dresses are pretty “meh,” I’m really digging that lady behind Amber in slide #3 – WELL PLAYED, MA’AM.

    I think they’re all gorgeous and look lovely if not necessarily compelling. Did you see AI last night where Seacrest acted like he was going to propose to Julianne? Those two are too cute together.

    I’ve reached a point where I think fishtail dresses need to be retired for fifty years, unmade bedspread trains or no.

    does anyone else think julianne’s dress is really prom-y? she could go to prom in it and no one would bat an eyelash. i mean come on jules, this is the big leagues, step it up!

      That must make about the 500th time I’ve seen a dress referred to with disdain as a “prom dress.” I know I’m old and out of it, but will someone please tell me, what’s wrong with prom dresses? Personally, I love them.

        Well – I think the idea is that prom dresses are lovely for a 17 year-old in a high school gym. A grown woman on a red carpet with the entire world of fashion at her disposal and the money to pay for it, should not look like she’s wearing something from JCPenney that cost $75.

    Ten kinds of impressed with Julianne. This is the best I’ve seen her look in a long time. She looks fresh and young and is not wearing too much eye makeup.

    I love Amber’s dress. From all angles.

    Where is Emily Blunt? I think her pink dress was the best

    Pink is a difficult color to carry off. I’m not sure any of these ladies have succeeded.

    I actually really like Amber’s dress…sure, it’s a little wackadoo in the back, but if you’re going to be a little wackadoo, this is the time and place. It’s better than all the snooze-worthy dresses that were at this event, including Julianne’s which is so super boring.

    I have no idea who these people are. I think I’m officially old.

    Amber Heard’s dress looks a little like the boob-cupping dress Charlize Theron wore to the Oscars a few years ago.

    Just the other day I was on the morning drive and listening to Seacrest and they were talking about how Johnny Depp is now secretly dating his co-star from The Rum Diaries and they kept calling her Amanda Herd instead of Amber Herd….it really just bugged me because aside from the fact that Johnny and Vanessa say they’re still together, Amber has a live in girlfriend.

    “frothing with sentience” is my new catchphrase; I just have to figure out where I can use it… it would also be an excellent band name.
