Met Ball Well Played, Rosario Dawson


I might be getting tapped out on the Met Ball, to the point where I need to communicate solely in one word ejaculations.




In all seriousness, though, I like this — it’s not very DRAMATIC in the way that everything else at the Met Gala is dramatic (ie: birds flying into bodices and women dressing like antiques), but boy, does she look good, and sometimes that’s enough.

    It is much better from the back, it is a little too loose and baggy at the front but is still very nice!

  2. Patricia

    I like the dress, but her hair looks frizzy.

  3. Terre Bowden

    she looks divine. frizz? is that the light? she’s always looked pretty amazing.

  4. Maddie

    I kind of want this. GLITTER. SPARKLES. SHINY! FLATTERING!

    I feel like this is a black-sequined version of gwyneth’s dress, no?

  6. Heta

    Um…perhaps it’s just the angle, but from the front, that looks like a giant sparkly jumpsuit to me, no? Lovely from the back.

    NOM! I want to marry this dress. And this year I think Rosario is looking better than she’s ever looked. Happy, healthy, gorgeous. I hope it’s all true. :D

    I saw her at the grocery store once, and MAN despite the fact that she looks great here and in general, neither photos nor film do her justice. She’s SO striking in person.

    Pretty, but she looks like a cardboard cutout in that first picture.

    I like it and would love to wear it myself! But, my favorite thing is how happy Tommy Motola looks standing right next to her in the 2nd picture!

    Is it just me or does she look like she was (poorly) photoshopped into these pics? Especially the first one. I do like the dress though, she is hot! I wish she was playing Catwoman instead of Hathaway

    @meg – an emphatic NO!!! Look back at GOOP and then at Rosario, and you will see the difference between glamorous and naked.

    Just sayin’.

    I feel like this is the grown up version of that copper sack A Hath wore to the Globes that had everyone in a tizzy. AND NO ILLUSION NETTING!

  14. Joni Woodhead

    the dress is very pretty but im most happy that she went for the string on the back of the neck to hold the arms on rather then icky illusion netting

    I think it appeals to the inner magpie in all of us.

  16. Julie

    Wow! She’s damn sexy…. I’m getting inappropriate feelings here….

    It is sexy and sparkly, but also boring.

    How has no one mentioned the incredibleaccidental photobombing occuring in the background by christina hendricks’ husband aka the creepy salesguy from Garden State. HE LOOKS LIKE HE’S ABOUT TO DO THE THRILLER DANCE. Once you notice that, it’s really all you can see.

    All I can say is that the girl needs a sammich.
