The biggest red carpet event of the year–the 2012 Met Gala–happened last night to celebrate the 0pening of “Schiaparelli And Prada: Impossible Conversations.” Unsurprisingly, old school Prada muses (like Milla Jovovich and Angela Lindvall) came out of the woodwork. As for the fashion? Sparkly, sheer and extremely unflattering were the orders of the day.
…But! Ugly dresses were the least of their problems, because apparently every good makeup artist in New York was off for the night: lots of hair dye experimentations (we hardly recognized you, Jamie King and Jessica Stam), black lipstick (Lana Del Rey, Kate Bosworth, Camilla Belle), harsh brows (Kate Upton) and whatever happened to Mary-Kate Olsen. Look through the gallery and then we must discuss! More
We need to spend more time on YouTube, because apparently that’s where the next wave of great makeup artists hang out.

This morning, we learned Megan Fox got the French Grazia cover, with some of her back tattoos stripped away (so as not to interfere with cover type, commenters suggest). Last week, Vogue was criticized by straight-laced style bloggers for not erasing Charlize Theron‘s tiny ankle tattoo. This got us thinking: which celebrity tattoos would we like to Photoshop away forever? Here they are, including Fred Durst‘s loving tribute to Kurt Cobain… Dennis Rodman‘s lady with a giganatic penis…Amber Portwood‘s floating baby head… and so many more. More
She basically looks exactly the same. More
According to sources, Johnny Depp and his lovely partner of 14 years, Vanessa Paradis are throwing in the towel on their relationship. This might be the most disappointing news of the year. Last year we watched in sadness as Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon said adieu and now this. It’s as though love has no place in this world anymore. Damn you, world.

Which do you prefer? I prefer the one in which she’s semi-recognizable, personally. More
She tries to get there, she really does. More
And we’re not sure we’re digging her performance. More
There’s another movie coming out about her soon.
Girl, you need a movie. More
My guess is that he isn’t actually an addict, but rather, just an asshole. More
You’ve seen a lot of her recently.
