The stars were out in full force Monday night at the 2014 Met Gala in New York City. And while some shined bright, others were in a whole other galaxy (we’re talking to you Kirsten Dunst). The Met Gala is a fundraiser that benefits the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.
The theme of the night was dedicated to the lesser known designer Charles James, most known for his four leaf clover dress, figure eight skirt – which is basically a combination of a skirt and pant, and a wrap dress known as the taxi dress. With a steep price of $25,000 per person one would think that guests would want to dress in their finest. However, the Met Gala is famously known for its bold, outrageous, and downright strange, fashion choices. Here is a list of the night’s more questionable red carpet looks.
The Oscar winner is usually on point with her fashion game, but last night something just went wrong. Her Prada green net flapper style dress resembled more of a Green Peace protestor than a fashion icon. Don’t worry Lupita, we’ll forgive you for this fashion faux pas and remember all you other flawless outfits.
It seems the former Dawson’s Creek actress has been watching her daughter Suri Cruise’s copy of Beauty and The Beast too many times. Her yellow Marchesa gown resembled Belle’s iconic dress. Sadly the dress looks much better in cartoon form.
Where do we begin? From the floral headpiece to the corset belt, there were just so many things off about Kate’s Dolce & Gabbana dress. The dress did not flatter her body and looked like she was seriously holding in her breath. Just breathe Kate; you’ll make it through this fashion disaster.
The actress is hardly golden in this Prada pant ensemble. I applaud your bold choice of opting for pants rather than a dress, but next time try something a little less flashy.
In a galaxy far, far away comes Kirsten Dunst’s dress. Sorry Kirsten, but your Star Wars themed Rodarte gown was anything but stellar. May the fashion gods be with you.
Polka dots, more like polka don’t! This sleeve length Valentino dress may have worked if you toned down the colours and all the dots.
