Met Museum NY Costume Gala

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY hled their Costume Institute Gala on Monday. I had wanted to post on this earlier but got into other posts. Other bloggers have covered it but I wanted to put my 2 cents in. Usually this gala is the highlight of the NY fashion scene/year. This year it wasn't. Somehow almost everyone managed to look either bad or just ok. Thankfully there were a few standouts, and they haven't been picked too much on other blogs.

First though, with the " What was she thinking" award ( and sorry if this picture scares you)

Jessica Simpson. Ok . we can safely say she was thinking she was hot, most likely. Bu really, this is all too much. It's Beyonce at the Golden Globes again but even worse. Her makeup, that lipstick, the haircolor even is not her. Her dress was by Roberto Cavalli, and he is not known for modest clothes. He arrived with her, calling her his " muse". So he wasn't thinking too well either.

Now , who rocked the walkway:

Ellen Barkin: that lady knows how to do it, even without showing off any cleavage or skin. She is tough and we know it.

Christy Turlington, and Claudia Schiffer: Both wore beautiful dresses. Claudia wins best dressed by a bit. ( after all didn't she
recently have a baby?)
