Colour Makes It Pop! (Met Gala VI)

It’s a rainbow! Melissa George in J. Mendel.

This is a beautiful dress. It is a little reminiscent of Diane Kruger’s SAG dress which was in turn oft compared to Michelle William’s Oscar dress but that’s not really a bad thing.

This is kind of a bad thing:

Naomi Watts in Stella McCartney. Love the colour. So pretty. And it is not a jumpsuit! Yay! But it’s not much of a dress, either.

It’s better here where I can imagine it does something interesting in the bottom and the shoulder pouf is not so poufy. Also, Liev Schreiber (psssst, Liev, your tie is crooked) (Oh! But congrats on your Tony nom! Try to get Naomi to wear something more flattering to the show. Not a jumpsuit!)

This is also better, for a pink dress:

Rachel Weisz in Oscar de la Renta. Kind of “Madonna wore this to look like Marilyn” but at least it fits nicely. And again, beautiful colour!

Emmy Rossum in Kenneth Cole. You can’t see it well but the top is nicely structured. I think I’d like it better shorter but that would also make it less formal.

And this is just gorgeous. Mariska Hargitay in Vera Wang. Mariska wore a similar silhouette to the White House Correspondents Dinner — there in red — and she is now two for two in style, grace and colour. It’s how subtle this colour is that really makes it special.

  3. […] Hargitay, as I mentioned here, ruled the red carpet in this gown. She’s breathtaking and I am entirely willing to overlook […]
