THE COSTUME INSTITUTE GALA

Photobucket
COSTUME INSTITUTE GALA

Gosh darn, I meant to post these pictures sooner, but by the time they came out I was retiring for bed. Yes some of us do work. As always I just want to state that this is my general opinion and not to be taken seriously, after all I'm not that important. Seems like anyone that's anyone showed up to this thing...


I thought Mary-Kate looked okay till I saw a picture of her beside Ashley. She looks like an 80 year old washed up actress here. I think sleek straight hair would have gone a long way with this dress. Ashley needs her eyebrows fixed, but she's still a fox. It's hard to believe she's only like 5'0 or something, because this dress really elongates her body.

1/2 MARY - KATE OLSEN


ASHELY OLSEN

I had to give her five stars, homegirl has never looked so good. I loved that she paired it with a green stoned cuff. If you want to turn heads you definitely do it in a dress like this!


HILARY DUFF

Diane never disappoints, I can't even remember one outfit that she's worn that I didn't like. There's something very Sharon Tate about her here that I can't get out of my head. Christina Ricci always looks like a living doll. This Givenchy dress is stunning, but I don't think it would look good on just anybody.

DIANE KRUGER

CHRISTINA RICCI


I think Michelle's YSL dress would have definitely been a contender for me if I had been invited to such a party. There's something very mid 90s about Emmy Rossum, I don't love it, but I don't hate it either.

1/2 MICHELLE TRACHTENBERG

EMMY ROSSUM



These two are interesting beauties, and Tilda is a unique dresser that's for sure. I like Maggie's dress, but I think she needs to lose the necklace, lipstick and hairdo. A sleek updo would have sufficed no?


TILDA SWINTON

MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL


Beyonce looks like she always does wearing Armani, except this time I like her choice of color. I think it's the hair that killed the outfit. As for Blake this dress just doesn't seem very her, maybe the gloves are too much, or maybe they are just right?

1/2 BEYONCE

BLAKE LIVELY



Ivanka looks like a princess here, definitely one of my favorites of the night! As for Anna I had to give her three stars for wearing this Chanel Couture because she might come after me and shut my web site down. *Shudders*

IVANKA TRUMP

ANNA WINTOUR

I think if Kimora had worn her hair down it would have gone a long way. Dita looks stunning, but what else is new?

PhotobucketDITA VON TEESE

THE COUPLES


Homegirl is a mess here. That's all I have to say.


KATIE HOLMES


I think this is the worst Victoria has looked in a while, a mix of Old, bitchy, constipated and horrible. As for Jlo, I like her from the neck up.


VICTORIA BECKHAM

JENNIFER LOPEZ


Gisele knows she has a hot body, look at that side boob! As for Rachel I really like this dress on her, it's very her. It's nice to see somebody that sticks to their style no matter what.


GISELE BUNDCHEN

1/2 BILSON


She's turning into a robot right before our eyes!

SARAH LARSON

THE MODELS

Photobucket

Molly blew everyone away with this yellow dress. I'm glad she went for a spring color instead of something dark. Afterall it's that time of the year!

MOLLY SIMS

KAROLINA KURKOVA


THE SHORT DRESSES

Lake is fierce! This risk work well for both her and Thandie. I love that Thandie isn't afraid of fashion, all her outfits are so unique, and not in a bad way.

LAKE BELL

THANDIE NEWTON




THE GREENISHBLUES

Eva looks like crap! What was she thinking? Is she in the 90s? This is so wrong on so many levels and she's such a beautiful girl. I'm starting to think she doesn't have a stylish, she always seems like a mixed bag, you never know what your going to get.

EVA MENDEZ

ZOE KRAVITZ


THE BRIGHTS

I don't think I've ever seen Eva in something like this. Again I like it, but don't love it. Camilla reminds me a frozen lake in the winter. I think she would have benefited in the wow factor by wearing gold accessories.


EVA LONGORIA PARKER

CAMILLA BELLE


I love this color on Stella, it's nice to see her out and about. This dress on Kate is great, again if i was invited to such a party this would have been on my list of choices. I love how David Bowie always steps back and let's Iman shine!

STELLA MCCARTNEY

KATE MOSS

IMAN



JUST NO

First of all, why was Piper invited to this? What has she done lately? The makeup and hair makes her look so old and she's so beautiful. It's a shame that she would do that to herself...
When I first saw this picture of Naomi, I thought it was Nicolette Sheradon. This is just frightful, the dress might have been okay if it wasn't for the shawl.

1/2 PIPER PERABO

PhotobucketNAOMI WATTS


CHAMPAGNE COLOR
I can't believe Scarlett is engaged to Ryan Reynolds, I really wanted him to get back with Alanis. What went wrong with those two? I really don't like her tattoo either, it probably would have been better in black ink instead of all the colors.

PhotobucketSCARLETTE JOHANSSON

Photobucket 1/2 MISCHA BARTON



ALL IN BLACK

Liv's dress reminds me of a midnight sky, I think her hair is nicely styled too. I don't care for Fergie Ferg's dress.

Photobucket LIV TYLER

PhotobucketFERGIE FERG


Mary J, please do something with THAT yellow hair and THOSE earrings. As for Claire I think this is the best she's ever looked, this dress does wonders for her. The fish tail, and cuts on the shoulder keep the dress from being too boring.

PhotobucketMARY J BLIGE

Photobucket CLAIRE DANES

I expected more from Sarah Michelle, this is just so boring! Normally she is one to watch out for...

THE DESIGNERS

ARMANI / CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN

Julia looks like an old hollywood beauty here from the 60s. I think it's adorable and it suits her really well.

Photobucket JULIA ROBERTS


VALENTINO / KARL LAGERFELD
Kate Bosworth is now offically a risk taker. I love this dress, it's short, but still appropriate for this gala. I would have liked Claudia's outfit more if she had pulled her hair up, I think it's distracting from her dress.

Photobucket CLAUDIA SCHIFFER
Photobucket KATE BOSWROTH


Janet well she's Janet. It's a rare day when I like anything that she wears. I think she's wearing way too much makeup too, but maybe she's getting to that age. Speaking of faces, Donatella's looks like it was pushed into a frying pan, but we all knew that already. I really like her dress though, credits for that. What is with the hump behind Allegra?

lol. ewww, homegirl IS a mess. what's the deal katie. maybe if she would stop trying to be someone else and just be herself her natural style would carry her. trying WAAAAYYY too hard.

Key said...

Olsen are chic as always... in her own way... i love her style but... BAD hairdo!! Ruins the cool dresses!

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

^ I agree, if she fixed her hair it would have gone a long way.

WendyB said...

Boring looks.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Jen-I voted Piper and at the moment, everyones agreeing with me!

coco said...

I don't like what Hilary wore at all, I mean I think she looked stunning in it but it was so out of place at the event. Her hair looked nice however.
And I agree totally on Mary-Kate, why did she look so old????

Chic Closet said...

I really loved Diane Kruger's dress and all, she looked stunning! Those legs are to die for.

I thought Gisele and Tom looked hot! Tom looked like Leonardo though..

Great post, loving the stars :D

saray said...

Mary-Kate looks so bad!
i really love her dress - but she looks so old!
Ashley looked great! her dress really made her look tall!

ohh and Gisele looked really hot!

LBIC said...

I think Gisele and Ashley's dresses were the best and Mary Kate was the worst dress. It wasn't even a bad dress, it's just overall appearance.

Neekoh said...

Amazing post! You do such a wonderful comprehensive overview of these events; you're the first person I turn to :)
But... what happened to the font halfway down the post?

stilettostetico said...

Liv Tyler is simply like a Refreshing "GODDESS Next Door" !!!
Timeless Elegance . . .
JE vote pour ELLE !!!

A Bientot,Antoine

Make Do & Mend said...

Fab work ***** stars to you!
What on earth was Homegirl thinking of! Your comments were great and yes it is such a same about Eva Mendez - she is so gorgeous but needs a good stylist - one that says NO!

SET said...

ZOE LOOKED A MESS TO ME TOO EXTREME. NOT SURE I GET THE SLOPPY BOHE THINGY SHE DOES. GISELE BODY IS SICK, THE DRESS LOOKED CHEAP TO ME. LOTS OF CLASSY LOOKS TO SITE OUT, IT WAS A FAB NITE, THEY TRIED VERY HARD.

LML said...

michelle trachenburgs was prob my favorite! really like christina ricci's and ashleys as well :)

Secret Agent said...

Whoa, what's with the text? It seems like every time I come onto your blog, it gets bigger and bigger!
Anyways, Michelle T looks pretty average. I think Blake L looks pretty hot. Ashley Olsen...wow....who knew MK would beat out Ashley on fashion and style (knowing how hobo-MK used to dress).

The Seeker said...

Great post with interesting pictures.

Mary Kate seemed weird with that hair. Ahah so funny, the Homegirl :) was really a mess.
Wow, Victoria was sooo bitchy with that eyes...

xx

Imelda Matt said...

J - I love the 'star rating' system you've implemented!

I must disagree with the 3 and 1/2 for Mischa and no stars for Posh! Homegirl is certainly a right-royal mess and is Anna W - GF needs to locate the Mothership in that Chanel grossuture!

What's with deal Marc Jacobs and the 'man-bag', HELLO! Did Imelda not say on National TV that he needs 'put down the crack-pipe and get of the diet pills'. Clearly he was watching that day!!!

Armani looks like the 'crypt-keeper'...LOL

Great post

Jennifer Stoddart said...

Hilary Duff is looking so good these days! I've always loved her, mind you, but she's looking fabulous recently.
I also have to say that I heart Liv Tyler and am ecstatic that she's back out in the scene again!

aizat.cinta.goddess said...

i still love my mary kate..

Ediot said...

Danz said...

I'm a Ryan+Alanis fan too...I'm really not feeling him and Scarlett but then again, it's not up to me. Congrats to them.
