BombPop Picks for Best and Worst Dressed at the Met Gala

Leah and Sam pick their favorite looks from Monday night's Costume Institute Met Gala.

Sam: I am always so excited to see what the fashion and Hollywood elite are wearing to the Met Gala. This year's theme was an homage to classic couturier Charles James, so I knew we were in for elegant shapes and lots of elbow length gloves. When it came to the gloves, I was not disappointed.

My picks for best dressed:

Dita Von Teese in Zach Posen is perfection. I mean, does this woman have an off day?

Greta Gerwig in THEORY by Olivier Theyskins. I love the texture and volume in this gown, she looks like she came from the future, in a good way.

I really wanted to give a nod to Solange Knowles this year, since she has killed it for the past two Galas, but her look was a bit disappointing. So I'm giving my third shout-out to Nicole Ritchie in Donna Karan Atelier. I don't always love Ritchie's style choices, but this slinky silver gown is lovely, and looks amazing with her violet coif.

The worst:

Katie Holmes in Marchesa. What a mess! She looks as though she wandered through a hurricane on her way to the gala. This mustard yellow frock is a miss with it's unflattering hue and bust line.

Kate Upton looks like quite the prima donna here in Dolce and Gabbana. It wouldn't be terrible if she was in fact about to sing her first aria, but that's not the case.   

Kristen Stewart in Chanel Haute Couture looks like Kristen Stewart in anything: awkward. This dress belongs on someone with the personality to pull it off. At the very least they should have tailored it for Stewart with a shorter sleeve. And what's with the wear-to-work black pumps?

Leah: This year the bad and mediocre far outnumbered the good at the Met Gala. I managed to identify a few standouts, but like pimpin', it wasn't easy.  


Karolina Kurkova (in Marchesa) did the best at following the theme of the evening without looking like she was wearing a costume. For the definition of owning it, see above.

Look out, Pharell, there's a new giant hat wearer in town: Erykah Badu. The hat aside, I really like this Givenchy jumpsuit/oversize pants and white jacket combo, but what makes it amazing is Erykah's attitude.

Janelle Monae wearing pants isn't that surprising, but that cape (by Tadashi Shoji) is a thing of beauty.


Did NPH and David Burtka have to exchange outfits with tiny circus ringmasters at the last moment? Cause that's what it looks like. Crop top suits should not be something that exists.

The outfit (by Kenzo) is bad enough, but that braid? I've seen Big Love, and I know Chloe can rock a braid better than that.

Sandra Lee in a dress by Dara Lamb: the stuff of nightmares.

Did we get it right? What were your favorites from the fashion event of the year?
