Last night’s viewers of SNL got to enjoy a little vintage throwback when Dana Carvey came on set to revive the beloved Church Lady character who was ready to mock the hell out of Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. Carvey joined special celeb host Brie Larson for a fun evening of mocking (Larson played a… READ MORE »

FKA Twigs’ fiance Robert Pattinson was on her arm at last night’s Met Ball, but it was the dick on her dress that stole everyone’s attention. The dress, designed by Christopher Kane, was a Picasso-esque tribute to the body, with an artfully displayed cock right at the point where her dress slit. Sexual. LOVE IT. [The Cut] … READ MORE »

Humans Of New York,” a collection of street-style photos and interviews gathered throughout the city, is one of my favorite blogs in the world. I love how refreshingly honest and vulnerable it is in capturing people’s stories. Apparently, I’m not the only one — Vogue invited HONY creator Brandon Stanton to cover the Met Gala. Stanton usually photographs everyday people, so… READ MORE »

The clothes at last night’s fancy-pants Met Ball soiree were pretty and all, but I’m never going to be able to afford a custom-made, one-of-a-kind Lanvin dress. Not like I would have anywhere to wear it, so whatever. I — and you! — can, however, take some cues from some of the daring and stunning… READ MORE »

The conclusion I reached after downloading, cropping, uploading and naming the 110 images in this gallery of all the stars on the 2014 Met Ball red carpet: If you didn’t get an invite, you aren’t one. A STAR, I mean. Because anyone who’s anyone, who’s been anyone in the last, oh, five years, was seemingly… READ MORE »

We had Feelings about the Met Ball’s “punk” theme this year. So, apparently, did Vogue’s Grace Coddington, who upon arriving at the event remarked that she would have liked “to see some real punks in here, like street punks.” Word! Something was certainly missing, and that thing, Grace must have decided, was cats. Everything could… READ MORE »

“I’m never going [to the Met Ball] again. … It was so un-fun. It was boiling. It was too crowded. I did not enjoy it at all.”
— You hear that, Anna Wintour? Gwyneth Paltrow did not enjoy her time at the Met Ball, and she will not be attending next year. So, on… READ MORE »

Kim Kardashian’s floral Met Ball gown was certainly a lot of look, but did it look familiar? Robin Williams’ thinks so and he’s sure he wore it best. [Twitter] … READ MORE »

If there’s one thing we can say for certain about Monday night’s “punk”-themed Met Gala, it’s that there was certainly a lot to look at. Like, a lot. We hardly even know where to begin. There was the good, which was at its best over-the-top and in keeping (or attempted) with the misappropriated theme, and… READ MORE »

Look, as everyone at the 2013 Met Gala last night realized, “no one was paying attention to the Punk theme.” The theme actually became “Everyone ignored this theme.” Ashley already pretty cruelly dismissed my favorite dress, worn by the lovely Bee Shaffer by saying:
Not only does Anna Wintour‘s daughter Bee Shaffer look really pretty, the Sex Pistols were huge… READ MORE »

The Met Ball was poppin’ off last night. Not that we were there, but like, we could have been. The Costume Institute Gala is always home to some of the wildest fashion you’ll see all year long, and this year’s theme of “PUNK: Chaos To Couture” lent itself especially well to all things amazing and… READ MORE »

We could get into the atrocious politics, the end-of-culture-ness that having a Costume Institute Ball themed around punk entails. We could talk about how political punk icons like Joe Strummer and the dudes from Crass would be appalled by such a blatant cultural misappropriation. About how the Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition at the Met… READ MORE »

If you’re Beyonce, you can pretty much do whatever you want to do — and that includes crashing one of the most important events on the New York social calendar, the Met Costume Institute Ball. It seems Bey wasn’t planning on going at all, but then that purple Givenchy gown showed up at her house… READ MORE »

As if we needed any additional reasons to adore the extremely adorable Carey Mulligan, here’s one more: the starlet placed her Met Gala dress on eBay yesterday, with all the proceeds from the auction going to Oxfam America. The custom Prada dress (constructed of silver and gold metal paillettes, if you recall) began at the… READ MORE »

Today in Things That Are Not At All Surprising: the queen of American fashion and the queen of American television are not gal pals. Rumor has it that the reason Kanye West turned up solo to the Met Ball on Monday night (and looked très bitter the entire evening) was that ladyfriend Kim Kardashian was… READ MORE »

The Met Ball is, in many ways, bigger and brighter than all of the awards shows combined. While the Academy honors excellence in film, the gala honors glamour in its purest form. Each year there’s a “topic” of celebration — last night extolled the parallels of Miuccia Prada to the late great Elsa Schiaparelli; last… READ MORE »

The Met Ball, held each year at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, is Fashion with a capital F’s version of the Oscars. Okay, so no awards are given out — this year’s gala celebrated “parallels between Miuccia and the late Elsa Schiaparelli” — but the red carpet arrivals put the Academy… READ MORE »
