Red Carpet Rundown: 2013 Met Gala

I’ve been following Met Gala fashion for several years, but last night was the first time I watched the live streaming on Vogue.com. Even putting aside the fact that I was vicariously embarrassed for both Billy and Hilary on multiple occasions, I was really disappointed. The lack of effort that probably 75 percent of the attendees put into looking “punk” was such a letdown; it had the potential to be so much fun!
Fortunately, among the misses, there were a few red carpet hits. Here’s my breakdown of the best dressed:
Beauties in Black
From left to right: Carey Mulligan stunned in a simple Balenciaga LBD; Cara Delevingne rocked a studded Burberry gown; and Dakota Fanning looked gorgeous in a Rodarte cut-out dress.

Color Crush
From left to right: Kerry Washington popped in a purple Vera Wang gown; Nicole Richie went for a full-on monochromatic look (down to the hair!) in her Topshop dress; and Kate Bosworth wore a Balmain dress I would kill for.

Best Makeup
Left: Rooney Mara in Givenchy (can anyone rock a vampy lip better than her)?; Ginnifer Goodwin looked fierce in Tory Burch (girl can seriously pull off a dramatic eye).

Best Hair
Jennifer Morrison, who wore a custom Donna Karan Atelier, totally kicked ass with her killer faux-hawk.

Best Effort
Though they weren't "best dressed" in my books, Madonna (in Givenchy) and SJP (in a Giles Deacon gown and Philip Treacy headdress) definitely put in the most effort.

Best Dressed
I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a big fan of Anne when it comes to fashion. But last night, she looked downright hot. The blonde hair is totally working for me, and her vintage Valentino was both sexy and punk in its own way, without trying too hard or looking costume-ish.
