I was minding my own business when Ally sent me a
sideshow slideshow of fashion mistakes choices from last night’s Met Gala. I don’t know if people were confused as to what the occasion was, but they all seemed to break out their finest designer Halloween costumes. Let’s break it down into categories. (Photo credits: HuffPost)
Some ladies decided it best not to stray from the classics:
Here’s Vera Wang as a skeleton
As any girl knows, Halloween is an excuse to dress as slutty as possible without being judged. Here’s Ana Rubik as a sexy mummy
It’s not a Halloween party without a witch; unfortunately nobody dressed as one. But luckily Mary-Kate Olson decided to drop by after her defense against the dark arts class at NYU.
Next, a couple women went a really unique route and dressed up as textiles:
Here’s Sarah Jessica Parker as a table cloth…
And Gwyneth Paltrow as a small scrap of satin
(It’s actually kind of cute from the side – minus that heinous bronze clutch)
We also saw a couple ladies dressed as famous personalities:
Like Kirstin Dunst’s creative interpretation of what Nancy Reagan might have looked like had she been First Lady during the Great Depression
And Sandra Lee showed her great sense of humor by showing up as herself
Now I’ll move onto the misc. category, which includes a vast array of really unique and creative costume ideas:
A record store
An Olympic swimmer (gold medal, of course)
A naked peacock
Geisha robot? (Perhaps she was inspired by her futuristic role in Hunger Games)
Leighton Meester really stumped me. I don’t know if this is supposed to be some sort of fowl – a swan maybe. Or did she just go as spray tan?
Now I want to give props to the one dress that I thought was really beautiful. I’d like to steal Camilla Belle’s Ralph Lauren dress and wear it to bed every night.
