So last night was the Met Gala honoring the recently departed fashion designer Alexander McQueen. Although Sarah Burton was on hand (McQueen’s successor and Kate Middleton’s wedding gown designer), she was only one of many to jump on the nude dress bandwagon. Some starlets really shined and sparkled, some just made me want to vomit, but they all confirmed that nude is THE spring dress color. Take a look:
THE TRULY HORRIFIC:
Fergie in Marchesa. In a dismal night for Mrs. Harvey Weinstein (co-designer of Marchesa), Fergie is now a schman in a bad wedding gown from the 1980’s. Tied for worst of the night. How is she married to Josh?!
Livia Firth in Stella McCartney. This silk pantsuit with detachable skirt just looks sloppy. And no, my opinion has nothing to do with the fact that I am irrevocably in love with her husband Colin, who is perfect, as usual, in Tom Ford. Oh, and she could use more luminous makeup and softer hair.
And, what pains me the most of all is that the feted, Sarah Burton, may have been the biggest let down of the night. Not sure if she is trying to wear every rejected bridal gown she whipped up for Catherine Middleton, but this dress just doesn’t do Sarah any favors:
