Fug File: Met Ball

Met Gala Fugs or Fabs: Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson


In the hopes of getting through so many many many Met Gala looks, I thought, “why not stick the two American Horror Story ladies together?” Let’s start with the Supreme herself, Jessica Lange (with and in Marc Jacobs):

Marc looks sharp, although that man-bag looks like a dop kit, as if he ran out of the hotel before realizing that he’s still got his toothpaste and shaving cream on him. I think she looks great — and better when you realize she’s NOT wearing a Bump-It, but she’s just standing in front of another woman with similar colored hair. Is this going to change the universe? No. But is she going to wake up the next day wailing, WHAT HAVE I DONE? Also no.

And then there’s Sarah Paulson in Prada:

I SHOULD hate this, but I actually love it. It’s like the crazy drunk cousin of someone else’s more boring dress, and that’s always the person you want to be seated next to at the party.

Met Ball Feh Carpet: Rita Ora in Donna Karan


I hate to repeat what I said on Twitter, but I know not everyone reads it, and what I wrote there is still the first thing I think. Which is: Rita always poses like the manufacturer forgot to level her when she was made.

Met Gala Delightfully Played, Posh in Victoria Beckham and Becks in Ralph Lauren


She looks a bit underwhelming — not bad, but not GRAND enough for my personal needs at this event — but he is A DELIGHT. A delight, I tell you.

Met Ball Well Played: Blake Lively in Gucci Première


A sighting of Blake and Ryan together, canoodling on a red carpet, is almost as rare as an Affleck-Garner public lovefest. DRINK IT IN WHILE YOU CAN.

Met Gala Well Played, Dita Von Teese in Zac Posen


I feel like when the theme for this year’s Met Gala came out, Zac Posen heaved a HUGE sigh of relief and called Dita and was like, “WE ARE ALL OVER THIS.” And, indeed, so they were.

Met Gala Fugs and Fabs: The Three Olsens


There is some confusion on the Interwebs as to which twin is wearing what designer, and I think it’s because some people can’t tell the twins APART so they’re trying to be vague about how they’re credited. Ashley is more widely reported to be in Chanel, and she’s the one in the gown with the buttons, which LOOKS like it would be vintage Chanel to me. So I’m going with that, which means Mary-Kate’s stripes are vintage Gianfranco Ferré. Which also feels right. Elizabeth is in Miu Miu, which feels SO WRONG — like, I think Mrs. Prada must secretly hate the Met Gala, because she often sends stuff that is both wildly off-point and wildly off-taste.
