Fug File: Met Ball

Met Gala Fug Carpet: Linda Evangelista


Speaking of people Unclear On the Concept (AKA, two-thirds of the people who showed up at this thing):

While everyone else was attending the Met Gala — well, ostensibly, anyway — Linda Evangelista was apparently attending her own wedding. At Medieval Times.

Met Ball Fug or Fine Carpet: Blake Lively


The press release for the outfit described it as “a Gucci Première pale green silk georgette strapless gown with silver and matte black feather motif embroideries [and] layers of black organza that cascade into a dramatic train.”

Proof positive that sometimes words really can paint a prettier picture than… well, a picture. Her body is clearly great, her earrings are groovy, but the bodice is way too snug and I am concerned the skirt is contagious.

Let’s also consider the hair:

Met Gala Fug or Fab: Kerry Washington


I fell in love with Kerry Washington a little bit last night. Hilary Rhoda was interviewing her on the livesteam — and, listen, Hilary Rhoda is lovely, but a gifted celebrity interviewer she is not. Can’t they hire Coco for this sort of thing? — and she mentioned that she loves going to the Met, because of how much she loves From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. You had me at “Frankweiler,” Kerry Washington. Can we get together and talk about awesome childhood books? What are your feelings on Harriet the Spy?

I think she looks great from the neck up. I LONG for them to allow Olivia Pope to look like this more often (Olivia has looked tired lately, although I guess with good reason. It’s more that I feel like if Olivia Pope got to look a weeeeee bit more Kerry Washington every now and then, her personal life would not be such a disaster). I appreciate the nod to theme with the fishnet in her cleavage (that sentence is much uglier than the actual dress) and the leather gloves, and you KNOW I love a pattern. Am I 100% sold on this little number? I’m not sure.

You tell me:

So, one of the beans has been having occasional night terrors.

And now, thanks to this dress, so will I.

Met Gala Fug or Fab: Cameron Diaz


“Wait. Where am I?”

“NO. Come on. They told me I was going to the first annual Salute to Gywneth Paltrow’s Tom Ford Oscar Dress of 2012. THAT’S WHY I’M WEARING THIS CAPE. I’m going to kill Stella.”

That being said:

Met Ball Hilariously Played: Chloe Sevigny


Well, the expression of defiance certainly could qualify as punk.

But the Gloria Swanson get-up? Not so much. Then again, Gloria Swanson created an inventions company in New York that was basically a front for helping Jewish scientists and inventors escape Europe during World War II, so she was fairly bad-ass and trailblazing in her own right. Let’s just assume Chloe was reading Gloria’s Wikipedia page when she was picking out her outfit and decided that thwarting the Nazi establishment was the most deliciously punk act of all. And that the turban is therefore a TURBAN OF SECRETS. (Coming soon to a theater near you, starring Nicolas Cage.)
