Met Gala fashion: Stunners and bummers

 

There were stunners, snoozers and bummers at Monday’s Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC Monday.

Erykah Badu: Pharrell’s hat reached new heights with a swath of added bling.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: What was up with all those dots? Albeit Valentino dots.

Gabrielle Union: Please next time leave the hula grass skirt in Hawaii.

Janelle Monae: Toro, toro! Too much cape (fear).

Lupita Nyong’o: For once, doubts were raised about her fashion sense due to that parrot green Prada flapper thing that included a jeweled cage overlay with feathers and a brown sheath underneath.

Kristen Stewart: Bejeweled, befeathered, nubby and metallic, her Chanel was cut in the middle by a wide waist band of some sort.

Sarah Jessica Parker: Oscar de la Renta signed the princessy black and white ballgown in red on the back hem.

Sarah Silverman: Nothing funny about that classic strapless silhouette in maroon by Zac Posen.

Rihanna: Her below-the-breast tattoo peeked out from under a white midriff top with a high jeweled neck and pointy padded shoulders, worn with a matching long pleated skirt that had an unfortunate foldover at the rear.

Katie Holmes: Mustard yellow, by Marchesa, off-the-shoulder and jacked from Belle in Beauty and the Beast.

Beyoncé: The queen was in low-cut beaded black with a veil, joined by hubby Jay-Z in the white jacket donned by many of the guys, some who went for tails.

Kim Kardashian: No couch fabric or maternity this time around. The belted Lanvin in a midnight blue and black was perhaps not the best fit. There was lots of fabric and a peek of her panties.

Kirsten Dunst: Rodarte provided Dunst with a large splotch of metallic silver around the knees of her black gown and one shoulder loaded down with fabric while the other was a barely there sheer.

Blake Likely: The Gucci in blush gave her a polished look. Prettiest accessory? Hubby Ryan Reynolds.
