The Met's Costume Institute Gala: Mary-Kate Olsen

The Met's Costume Institute Gala: Mary-Kate Olsen

You knew Mary-Kate wasn't going to wear something simple. Far from. She swept through the Met Gala in a vintage Lacroix gown. The draped pleated chiffon bodice over a full ruffled skirt overlaid in metallic lace and silver-embroidered bustier-basque is a mouthful — and it's certainly a complex choice. She looks like she stepped off the set of a period film; is that a good or bad thing?

This would look better if the dress fit her. It is WAY too big for her, she needs to go down a few sizes.

Looks like Morticia's wedding dress, but what else is new. MK's style was always iffy. Sometimes she looks amazing, others, she looks like this.

Who lets this chick out of the house? Seriously time to fire your stylist

Part of me screams costume! But the other part of me loves it anyways.

I think the dress is pretty awesome, but her posture completely ruins the look. STAND UP STRAIGHT, YOUNG LADY!!

She looks even shorter than usual, but for some reason I love the dress. Only on her though :)

Ugh, bad Renaissance Fair. She's too short to pull this off

I love it... and I love that you can tell SHE loves it.

She was making me think of someone and I just figured it out. It's SJP's character from "Hocus Pocus"

Oh god, horrible. To me they both always get it wrong, they dress too old for their age, their clothing line is disgusting and they wear too much makeup for their pretty faces. Her right ring looks interesting, though.

I agree with mac addict on the barmaid in a period piece look. This could double as a Halloween costume.

She needs to stand up straight. She's a normal weight now - she should stop hiding her body under layers and layers of fabric all the time.

I love it! Very dramatic. It's not flattering though, makes her look shorter than she is, although maybe it's the camera angle...
