We all knew the 2014 Met Gala would be host to plenty of beautiful, elegant dresses given its “Charles James: Beyond Fashion” theme–and it was! There were so many incredibly well-dressed celebrities, fashion people, and other guests in attendance. Unfortunately, we could not have guessed just who would be wearing the absolute worst looks of the evening, such as Shailene Woodley, Rashida Jones, Zooey Deschanel, Rihanna and more. So, whose stylists fell short and whose styles fell flat at this year’s Costume Institute Gala?
Poor Elizabeth Olsen missed the memo that the Gala wasn’t Sochi-themed.
…And Chloe Sevigny apparently didn’t hear that it wasn’t Party Monster-themed, either. This Kenzo dress features a peplum and no discernible cohesiveness.
I’m giving Rashida Jones‘ Tory Burch gown a resounding “meh.”
Hayden Panettiere‘s Dennis Baso gown isn’t bad, just boring. Like cotton candy bubblegum that goes flavorless after two minutes.
If you ever needed an example of what “over the top times infinity” looks like, Sandra Lee has got it right here.
This color drowns out Amy Adams‘ radiance and its cut is nothing special; despite being from Oscar de la Renta, just feels sort of “mall prom-y” to me.
Shailene Woodley is one of our favorite stars right now, but this is just a big ol’ batch of WTF from her hair down to her skirt…thing.
I don’t think I could actively hate Sarah Jessica Parker‘s look from Oscar de la Renta more.
Nope, never mind. Totally could hate it more.
Toni Garrn‘s dress looks pretty from afar (especially the lower half), but the bodice is so awkward. Paging Cher Horowitz to discuss Monets, etcetera.
It’s just kind of bent and confusing, like a last-minute Project Runway challenge.
Sarah Paulson‘s dress appears to be going through some sort of arts and crafts identity crisis.
I love you, Rita Ora, but what is on your leg? I probably would’ve been into this Donna Karan Atelier had it not been for that awful early 2000s thing wrapped all the way up her thigh.
Leighton Meester is wearing a very expensive carpet from Urban Outfitters this evening. Or a dress from Emilio Pucci, or whatever.
…And Ivanka Trump is wearing the same carpet in lime green!
