Red Carpet Rundown: The 2013 Met Gala Worst Dressed List

Met Gala Worst Dressed: Taylor Swift attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.

The 2013 Met Gala took place last night and it was all our worst fears realized interesting! While the theme–PUNK: Chaos to Couture–was largely ignored, it was still observed enough (and hilariously misunderstood) to slip up many attendees.

And slip up they did! We don’t know which was worse–those who showed up completely indifferent to the theme, or those who embarrassed themselves trying. Here’s a mix of both, in our picks for the 2013 Met Gala Worst Dressed.

Oh. If you’d like something a little more positive pre-10:00 AM, here’s the Best Dressed list.

Model Anja Rubik attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.We guess Anja Rubik made an effort? Maybe? We thought she’d have looked great if the theme was Michael Jackson‘s Thriller: Music Video to Erotic Role Play.

Nina Dobrev attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.We thought Nina Dobrev was JWOWW. Also, her dress is pants.

Met Gala Worst Dressed: Taylor Swift attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Taylor Swift had an uphill battle because she is, as a friend of ours once described, a “human doily.” She is the opposite of punk. Separately, we strongly disliked this incoherent dress and not-exactly-human-colored skin.

Jessica Alba attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Speaking of the opposite of punk: Tory Burch. We appreciate how Jessica Alba ditched her eyebrows, but the dress was so weird.

Kristen Stewart attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Kristen Stewart really should have nailed this theme (it was the one time she could have worn Chucks on the red carpet!)–and we like this jumpsuit thing she’s been doing lately and we think it’s a spectacular color on her–but the drape in the front? Looks like two solid feet of deep camel toe.

Miranda Kerr attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.The “one note sexiness” stuff bothered us more than the “failed attempt at the theme” stuff. Miranda Kerr thought she could rest on her hot laurels in Michael Kors. No deal!

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Rosie Huntington-Whiteley might win for Most Garish in this busy Gucci.

Elizabeth Banks attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.We have no idea where Elizabeth Banks was going with her gold pin-striped blazer dress and fringed sandals.

Jessica Pare attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Jessica Pare tried to one up Kim Kardashian by wearing peplum pants surrounded by a ballgown. WTF.

Rita Ora attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Beyonce, chair of the Gala, took the cake for worst dressed. Ill-fitting, unflattering, just an all-around classic mess.

What would your version of the Met Gala Worst Dressed list look like?

    I’d put money down that Beyonce’s mom made that dress.

    I think Nina Dobrev looked pretty nice, actually.

    And Miranda Kerr had elements of punk; her vampy nails and OMG did you see her clutch?!

    • Jules

      The clutch is Louboutin. To die for <3
