WHERE & WHEN: 2013 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala – PUNK: Chaos to Couture on May 6, 2013.
WEARING: Giambattista Valli Haute Couture dress, pants and shoes & Fred Leighton jewelry
MY VERDICT: It was really exciting to see this Giambattista Valli black netted high-low gown and leggings on the MET Gala red carpet as it was a look I was really crossing my fingers for. I had envisioned Jessica wearing this Spring 2013 Haute Couture silhouette–but, it was the solid pink version. I had pegged the darker number for Diane Kruger as I felt Jessica would play it safer, and needless to say: I underestimated Jess. I feel like it captured the punk attitude even though it was pretty glamorous too.
My only qualm is that I feel like she thought the dress was going to do all the work for her and didn’t put any effort into it otherwise. | continue reading..
