I Adore The Way “Humans Of New York” Covered Celebs At The Met Gala

"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 photograph…

Beauty Breakdown: 7 Makeup Looks We Loved At The Met Ball (And How To Get Them!)

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 --…

Met Ball 2014: All The Amazing Looks At Fashion’s Biggest Night Of The Year

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…

Grace Coddington Uses Cats As Models To Illustrate Her Dream Met Gala Looks

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.

Gwyneth Paltrow Hated The Met Ball And She Doesn’t Care Who Knows It

"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,…

Robin Williams Thinks He Wore It Best

Beauty Cues: The 2013 Met Costume Institute Ball

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,…

9 Good Theme Ideas For The 2014 Met Gala

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 fa…

The 2013 Met Costume Institute Ball: Misses

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…

The 2013 Met Costume Institute Ball: Hits

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 exhibitio…

Carey Mulligan Puts The Prada Dress She Wore To The Met Ball On eBay For Charity

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.

What’s Beef? Apparently, Anna Wintour And Kim Kardashian Have It

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…

Hits & Misses: The Best And Worst Of Beauty At The 2012 Met Ball

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.

Joseph Altuzarra’s (Somewhat) Surprising Date To The Met Ball

Will we ever hear the end of Lana del Rey? She's been suspiciously absent from Fashion Week, and I thought for sure that her "Saturday Night Live" performance would finish the singer off for good, but the past few weeks have proven me wrong: not only has she landed a Vogue UK cover,…
