Fug File: Met Ball

Met Ball Fines or Fabs: The Mara Sisters


I actually really appreciate that Rooney didn’t do a full backslide into Lisbeth Salander for this. More like… a partial. But it works.

Met Gala Feh Carpet: Lena Dunham


I didn’t think Lena Dunham was going to look all that punk — she’s wearing (and posing with) Erdem, and as much as I really LIKE Erdem, it’s not very punk:

But I also didn’t think she’d look so boring. Maybe she saw the flaming crazy that was Allison Williams and got on the horn and was like, “dude, PULL BACK. I don’t even want to get roped into ANY OF THIS.”

PS: I miss you, Zosia.

Met Ball Fugs or Fines: The Dueling Diors Again, a.k.a. Marion Cotillard and Jennifer Lawrence


It’s been awhile since the darling dueling Dior representatives had to share the same red carpet. Here, they had to pose together, so they got very different outfits, neither of which service the theme and neither of which makes me delirious with joy nor engulfed in hate-flames on the side of my face. In fact, I think Dior totally, disappointingly, punted. Let’s discuss.

Met Gala Fug or Fab: Ginnifer Goodwin and Jennifer Morrison


Goodwin got big points Monday night for not even flinching when Billy Norwich — who was, and I can’t imagine he would disagree with me here, rather awkward and bad on the Vogue livestream Monday night (for the second year in a row, he was terrible! Hire someone who doesn’t ask “so, how long are you in New York?” as a legitimate question. That is not something viewers at home care about!) — called her “Ginnifer Godwin.” She just smiled and was totally charming. Of course, it’s possible she could NOT flinch, because her eye makeup was weighing her down, but whatever works:

I find the dress a little disappointing. The black harness part is leather, which…okay. And this is Tory Burch, who is never going to make a punk dress, ever. But the attempt feels so TWEE in a way that is almost more awkward (on a night that had a LOT of awkward) than just not even attempting anything at all.

Also not making the most of the evening was Ginnifer’s co-star, Jennifer Morrison:

Met Ball Fug or Fine Carpet: The Fannings


First, I realize Jaime King — here featured — is not a Fanning, but since I just realized she and Elle Fanning look a LOT like each other, I’ve decided to make her an honorary one. Like maybe she’s the “distant cousin” who is secretly Elle’s mother due to an EastEnders-style scandal in her childhood. Anyway, on the heels of Elle’s Fug Madness run and Dakota’s surprising ability to continue being under our radar despite not being above reproach EITHER, let’s take a look at these three Fannings, real and otherwise.

Met Gala Well Played, Hailee Steinfeld


When I saw this on the live-feed on Monday night — where Hailee said she thought Avril Lavigne was her favorite punk artist and Teen Vogue‘s Andrew Bevan almost choked on his own tongue laughing at her (in a sweet, older-brotherly way) and yelping that AVRIL IS NOT PUNK — I was all, “cute, Hailee. You’re adorbs. Moving on.” And then I took a closer look:

The dress is leather; the star-bursts are made of tiny safety pins. This is adorable, age-appropriate, event-appropriate, and — best of all — smart.  Avril wishes.
