MET Costume Institute Gala 2009: Another Blair Waldorf Miss?


So the comments for Blair's prom dress in the last episode of Gossip Girl ranged from "royalty", "incredible", "beautiful" to "[t]hat dress is hideous, looks like a carpet/rug. ... I didnt wear anything that ugly to my prom, and no one should." Tiffany, your comment made me laugh out loud when I read it. Like I mentioned, I didn't hate Blair's dress but it didn't wow me. I did however, hate Leighton Meester's paisley 'costume' for the MET Costume Institute Gala 2009! Fortunately there were may other beautiful outfits that made up for Blair's unsightly ensemble. Leighton's Gossip Girl co-star Blake Lively looked beautiful in Versace and I especially liked how she wore her hair slicked back in a ponytail for a change.

There were other stunning Versace numbers on the red carpet. Gisele Bundchen looked fab in this skin-tight Versace mini.

Jessica Biel wore this extravagant Versace Atelier number.

*Sigh, I wish I had a reason and the means to wear a Versace Atelier gown. They're over-the-top but beautiful!

And finally, Elizabeth Hurley, I am perhaps most envious of you for arriving to the Gala in this beautiful, beautiful, beautiful Elie Saab gown. Check out my previous post on the Elie Saab's Spring 2009 show here.

  12. Jessica Biel and Elizabeth Hurley's gowns are incredible!! I wish I could go to an event like that!!

    As for Leighton Meester, you should partly blame her stylist who put her in that because she probably trusts her stylist's tastes (which is also her fault for being so blind).
