'Q' IS FOR *QUITE* EXTRAORDINARY FASHION TRENDS!


Dear readers, I am participating in Alphabe-Thursday where ‘Q’ is for *QUITE* EXTRAORDINARY FASHON TRENDS AT THE MET COSTUME INSTITUTE GALA 2010
This annual Gala Benefit, which took place at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art on Monday, May 3 and hosted by Oprah Winfrey, Patrick Robinson (Gap), and Anna Wintour (Editor-in-Chief, Vogue), is an opportunity for "celebrities" to trial more daring trends than at the Oscars.

Dear readers, which do you think succeed and which fail?

KEY:
1 Katy Perry (above left) - makes Katie Price in a ball gown look tasteful!
2 Diane Kruger (above right) - new minimalism?
3 Tina Fey - THE jumpsuit!
4 Chloe Sevigny - some skating dress? (Proenza Schouler)
5 Carey Mulligan - giant lace blob?
6 Kirsten Dunst - wedding dress? (Rodarte, Gap)
7 Gisele Bundchen - tassels! (Alexander Wang)
8 Sienna Miller - Pucci & bondage shoes
9Rachel Zoe - Marc Jacobs: mellow yellow?

Which outfits do you like best and which the least?
Have a great Alphabe-Thursday! And check out other great Alphabe-Thursday posts @ Jenny Matlock’s great site! And thank you so much for all the comments, new followers and visits.
PS See you for Six Word Saturday this ... Saturday!
XOXO LOLA:)

I have to say I like Gisele.. she looks like she eats! .. I am amazed that these women look so waife like... I think Gisele looks like a woman,, curves and great legs!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

I love the simple white dress and the top.

Mike said...

Do these women ever eat?!

Holly said...

The yellow outfit is a disaster!lol

Michelle said...

The tassels & bondage shoes haha! :D

Viki said...

I love #2 but I don't think many women could wear it. I like #3, I remember wearing jumpsuits in my younger days.

Heavenly Housewife said...

I'm not particularly feeling any of these dresses.
Katy Perry: Why did your mom let you out of the house? You look so ridiculous!
Rachel Zoe: I die... but not in a good way LOL
There were some great dresses that night though. Jennifer Lopez looked particularly fab, and so I also loved Anne Hathaway's dress.
*kisses* HH

Anna said...

I like the white ones, Diane Kruger and Kirsten Dunst. I liked Sienna Miller's least.
What fun! Fashion!
Best wishes,
Anna

Jo said...

Zoe ... not I die ... more like I disaster ... really, i expect more from her.

Giselle ... face it, the girl looks great in anything ...

I cant pick a worst, most of them are the worst

Maggi said...

Hmmmmm, not sure that I really like any of these!

Beth said...

I don't think I'd care to be caught dead in any of the above! But I'm not waif-like either so chances are slimmer than those models that I would ever fit in them! :)

Gingeyginge said...

Thank you for your comment, lovely to hear from you...Like the lilac one...

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Lola and Nora,

I am not really fussed about any of these dresses, if I had to make a choice it would have to be Diane Krugers or Kirsten Dunst.

Have a very happy weekend
Hugs

Jamie said...

Diane Kruger looks amazing, I think just for being able to look flawless in that dress she should get an award! and go Tina, go! Didn't know the jumpsuit was on it's way back, but they say it all just cycles, right? Think I'll be sitting that cycle out though!

Jenny said...

That little purple outfit is adorable! I totally love that. If I ever get to my goal in WW's I am sooooo ordering something like that.

What a personally inspiring Q post!

Mike's comment made me laugh!

Thanks for participating. I always enjoy your fashionista posts!

A+

i know there was a lot of fuss over the velvet dress in spring..but i think it is just stunning...i say velvet in spring colors is the way to go!!!

Berlin said...

Katy, you are lovely but your outfit..

I am very bored of seeing the same jumpsuits =.=

LOVE the green dress, the purple one is not too bad.

Thanks for the early wish =3

With pizza & fries,
Berlin

Berlin said...

PS the purple dress would be lovely if the pockets weren't huge and bulgy.

=Berlin=

Melinda Cornish said...

you know, I am not crazy about any of them....how does rachel zoe style anyone....she looks like a hot mess....

Christy said...

I am thinking Not So Much on all of the dresses. The white one is the best imho! Love seeing what women who have all the $$ in the world wear. Wonder what I would, if I were them??

bichonpawz said...

I love Tina Fey, but I do not like her outfit....I was never a fan of jumpsuits! The minimalist white gets my vote!! But, maybe that's because that's what color Lola is!!! Ha!

What a fun post!!

Tina said...

I'm not a fashion girl at all. My uniform is jeans and a t-shirt. But if I were as ridiculously skinny as these girls, perhaps I'd try one of these...like #2 the best, although I'd be too hot.

Olivia said...

I kinda like the yellow one and the "wedding dress" and the minimalist. The others are pretty blah or just plain yucky.
