Gallery: The Best Dressed At The 2012 Met Gala

Hoooo boy, do we have our work cut out for us. Last night’s Met Gala wasn’t exactly brimming with great dresses, as you may have seen. Here, we have cobbled together a ragtag band of looks that will pass for Best Dressed. You’ll see looks that are halfway there, almost there or just a really flattering color! Ahead, we squeeze water from a stone with Carey Mulligan, Rooney Mara, Marion Cotillard, Cate Blanchett and more.

      You did the best you could with what you were given.

        “And we respect that.”

      You apparently didn’t see Nina Dobrev or Jessica Alba, who easily had the most gorgeous gowns. For shame.

      • Lyle

        Nina Dobrev’s dress was hideous.

        To borrow a phrase from Ashley, Alba’s dress was “pure cheese.”

        Pure predictable Alba RETRO GLAM HOLLYWOOD boring ass cheese. I prefer the ugly dresses because at least they’re interesting.

      You know, when I first saw the Lena Dunham picture, I thought you were crazy. But your argument is actually kind of… right? Everyone DID look like they were dressed up by some maniacal stylist, fixing to make their mark.

      I’m agreeing with this except for Carine Roitfeld. That is a sloppy, sloppy mess.

      • Ashley Cardiff

        I feel like I always fall back on people dressing true to who they are… and, sloppy or not, Carine gave full Carine.

    • Eagle Eye

      I’m officially bored of Rooney Mara looking like Rooney Mara aka the girl with the dragon tattoo…but yeah, she at least looks put together

      • Ashley Cardiff

        I’m with you.

    • Jamie Peck

      Maybe I’m being a philistine here, but I think it looks like Cate Blanchett is kneeling on a furry creature of some sort.

    • Eileen

      Chelsea Clinton looked nice. I mean, not great or anything, but nice enough, which I feel should qualify her, if these dresses are anything to go by.

    • Elizabeth

      No. Linda Fargo. Also Carey Mulligan. Honorable mention to Anna Wintour for getting Miuccia Prada to make her a Schiaparelli/Dali lobster dress.

      Beyonce’s sister Solange’ looks soooooooooooo hot in that yellow floor length dress,simply gorgeous!
