Best Dressed at the Met Gala

Kerry Washington looked like a flawless princess in this beautiful cotton candy pink gown

Amal Clooney can do no wrong on the red carpet. Plus she gets to go home to George Clooney….Where can I sign up for that?

Kate Hudson knows how to shine in gold dresses and this look was absolute perfection
Beyonce is seriously the only one that can pull off a dress like this

Worst Dressed at the Met Gala

Poor Solange, this dress is trying to cover up her face and yet she somehow peeks out
Katy Perry’s hair in this is just awful and the graffiti dress is better off as a drop cloth for my painting projects

Clearly Anne Hathaway decided to celebrate Star Wars day instead of the Met Gala
Olivia Wilde looked like she was ready to head to a prom in the 90’s in this dress complete with gloves and headpiece
To me this dress looks like Zoe didn’t check the proper lighting before leaving the dress in this tacky gunmetal number
Kris Jenner reminded me to order some curtains for our living room and to slather on the anti-aging lotion tonight

Monday Saying: Happy Star Wars Day
