THE DIVAS

The red carpet at the Met Gala is not supposed to be safe — and Beyoncé was evidently the first to get that memo. Showing up in a nude body stocking encrusted with some sort of leaf pattern attached to a blue-ish shag carpet, she was: Blue Ivy.

3. Rihanna

I think this is perfect because she’s more covered than she’s been in ages and by keeping it minimal (yet still spectacular) she let Beyoncé have it. And let’s face it, after B’s maternity leave from our lives, this was only the right thing for Rihanna to do.

5. Florence Welch

I love this. She looks like a crazy jellyfish!!

7. M.I.A.

She looks liks she showed up at the wrong luncheon.

8. Lana Del Rey

I sort of resent her lazy attempts at sartorial eccentricity. Like, “Oh I’ll just wear this relatively plain sequined dress and throw a cheap black cape over it and everyone will think I’m WEIRD.” I’m not falling for it — weird comes from the inside.

THE GOTHS

10. Rooney Mara

She could have also gone in my “exposed” category since, well, she’s wearing a lace window into her crotch, but I feel she’s more goth glam than “I invite you to look inside my dress” risqué, so I put her here.

11. Mary-Kate Olsen

I totally love this. She took every effort to look as perfectly crazy as possible.

GHOSTS

All-white is one of the biggest trends of the spring/summer season. These ladies looked ready for a proper haunting — and an even more proper staining. Thank God no one really eats at these things.

14. Anna Wintour (with daughter Bee Shaffer)

Still not quite sure what the gold thing on her dress is. A fish? The Olympic torch?

Ohhhh I guess she didn’t hear Lady Gaga exhausted the pointy shoulders thing about, oh, A WHOLE LIFETIME AGO.

18. Claire Danes

19. Amy Adams

20. Ashley Greene

ANDREW KELLY / Reuters

After the ball — she got married!!!!

21. Rachel Zoe

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

This is actually one of my favorite looks of the night. It must have felt really nice on the skin to have been wearing a big tassel (though the same probably cannot be said for the abalone around her neck).

22. Summer Phoenix (with Casey Affleck)

23. Lily Collins

I feel like Forever 21 is selling some iteration of this.

24. Donna Karan

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

25. Jessica Stam

LUCAS JACKSON / Reuters

She looks upset and I can’t help but wonder if it has something to do with her feeling like she’s wearing a knight’s costume.

THE SHINIES

Metallic is a trend that just won’t die — and for these things, it’s especially good, because you want to make sure people still notice you when Beyoncé drags her giant train into your shot.

26. Karolina Kurkova

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

Um, awesome?

27. Karolina Kurkova (and Rachel Zoe)

Charles Sykes / AP

Awesome.

28. Jessica Alba

29. Jessica Pare

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

Oh. This is ugly.

30. Carrie Mulligan

Larry Busacca / Getty Images

This is the fish I’ve always wanted.

31. Nina Dobrev

Larry Busacca / Getty Images

This was like Sex and the City 2 in dress form: you wanted it to be so great but it just wasn’t.

32. Nina Dobrev

33. Sofia Vergara

34. Cameron Diaz

Larry Busacca / Getty Images

I love that she kept it simple, but the look on her face — what could she possibly be thinking?

35. Kate Upton

Larry Busacca / Getty Images

Oh yeah — probably, “What the hell is Kate Upton doing here?”

36. Kate Upton

Larry Busacca / Getty Images

The same thing she always does, from the looks of it.

37. Bianca Brandolini

THIS IS THE SHINIEST WOMAN IN ATTENDANCE. SEE HOW SHINY SHE IS?

THE EXPOSED

38. Anja Rubik

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

So! This!

39.
Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

Do you think it has, like, a built-in jock strap for modesty’s sake? (What if there was a gust of wind?) Also, I know she’s a supermodel and all but, since when does a slashed pillow case freaking count as a dress?

40. Gwyneth Paltrow

Larry Busacca / Getty Images

What was it Kim Zolciak says in Don’t Be Tardy For the Wedding? Oh right: “I need some side-boob.”

41. Camilla Belle

Evan Agostini / AP

I think this is the perfect glamorous outfit. It’s edgy, shiny, sexy, and not doesn’t make you think too hard.

42. Lea Michele

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

43. Gisele

Definitely not one of my favorite Met Gala looks of hers. But this is Gisele — so she can wear dowdy things like this and not look dowdy.

44. Chanel Iman

Charles Sykes / AP

This is totally the black tie version of her Coachella outfit.

45. Candice Swanepoel

46. Renee Zellweger

Larry Busacca / Getty Images

Man, there was a lot of side-butt at this thing!

47. Katharine McPhee

48. Heidi Klum

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

49. Debra Messing

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

This looks like one of those Project Runway looks the designer didn’t have enough time to finish. This woman needs a new stylist!

THE WEIRDOS

Risk is always appreciated on the Met Gala red carpet more than any other red-carpet event. But there is risk that works and risk that just makes no damn sense.

50. Chloe Sevigny

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

Okay, so —WHAT?

51. Chloe Sevigny

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

You know those dance music festivals where they have craft tables, so you can make like necklaces out of washers and things? This looks like something she made at one of those stations.

52. Kristen Stewart

A little awkward but cute overall.

53. Christina Ricci

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

Elegant weird!

54. Ivanka Trump

Charles Sykes / AP

If Hugh Hefner got stuck in the body of a blond woman of her age, this is what his evening attire would look like.

56. Elizabeth Banks

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

I have no idea.

58. January Jones

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

You know, I don’t know why she and Versace stopped at the bright yellow with the tacky bustier thing going on — at this rate they may as well have put two openings at the bottom for her two legs and made this a jumpsuit, since it would be hard to make this any harder to pull off.

59. Kirsten Dunst

Larry Busacca / Getty Images

At first I hated this but then I looked at it five minutes later and thought it was quite nice. Someone has to play headmistress at this thing.

60. Coco Rocha

Larry Busacca / Getty Images

I could forgive this if it weren’t for the hair.

THE TAN

Ladies! Examples of when Occasion Tanning goes wrong.

61. Sandra Lee

THE FLOWER PATCH

Florals are always a fun way to welcome spring. These ladies wore them without being boring, for the most part.

63. Rashida Jones

64. Emma Stone

Larry Busacca / Getty Images

65. Sarah Jessica Parker

Larry Busacca / Getty Images

I know a lot of people are going to hate this, but it has that quirky fashion-y quality about it that only Carrie Bradshaw can pull off.

67. Chelsea Clinton

Larry Busacca / Getty Images

68. Karlie Kloss and Jason Wu

70. Tory Burch

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

This is cool because it’s like a big Hawaiian shirt made of tulle and other evening gown stuff.

71. Kristen Wiig

BRIGHT SOLIDS

THE BOTTOM-HEAVY

These ladies gave the words TRAINING DAY new heft.

THE PERFECTLY FINE BUT NOT SPECTACULAR

87. Lena Dunham

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

I love her pink shoes. Honestly, this is the perfect look for her. No one expects her to show up in that dress Beyoncé wore.

88. Caroline Trentini (with Olivier Theyskens)

LUCAS JACKSON / Reuters

She’s a super-famous model so why is she dressing like a Golden Girl? As in, not the cool way one might dress like a Golden Girl today?

89. Allison Williams

96. Scarlett Johansson

This is trying quite hard to be so awesome, but… meh.

97. Vera Wang and Paula Patton

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

THE BAD

The worst-dressed are always some of the best people — and that is always painful.

98. Dianna Agron

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

This just looks cheap and ill-fitting to me. Like she dragged it out of her suitcase and threw it on minutes before the ball. If I knew I might get photographed on the carpet between Gisele and Rihanna, I’d probably put more thought into it than that.

99. Leslie Mann

Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

100. Dee Occlepo and Tommy Hilfiger

LUCAS JACKSON / Reuters

101. Jessica Chastain

Larry Busacca / Getty Images

So much talent — so little ironing!

102. Janelle Monae

It’s not the jumpsuit aspect of this I hate — it’s the waist brooch and visible creases from when she was sitting down. It’s a pageant look gone wrong.

113. Tom Brady (with Gisele)

Guys, I think he’s wearing a velvet jacket. Looks like the sports blogs have a week’s worth of making fun of Tom Brady ahead of them!

I don’t know why she’s on a cane, but damn, that is fortitude.
