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.

    Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley no longer speak: Is it because of Scientology?

    Que paso? Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley used to be so close. They met as partners on Dancing with the Stars and stayed in touch but these days they no longer speak. “She stopped getting along with me,” Chmerkovskiy told Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. “I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can't be associated with, I am no longer to be spoken with, and sorry, but it is what it is.” Jennifer Lopez, rumored to be dating the dancer, is besties with Leah Remini, who recently left the Church of Scientology, and that perhaps doesn’t sit well with Alley, who remains loyal to Tom Cruise’s church.

    At 88, Hollywood legend Lee Grant looks back in ‘I Said Yes to Everything’

    Actress Lee Grant came that close to washing Shampoo out of her hair when co-star Warren Beatty told her how to play the scene when she learns he has seduced her character’s daughter. The matter got resolved after she spoke to the actual director, Hal Ashby, and then to Beatty again. Not only did she win an Oscar for the role, but she and Beatty became great friends, even sharing a few passionate kisses after filming ended.
