Fashion Police at the Met Costume Institute Gala: Kristen Stewart in Chanel

 American Woman: Fashioning A National Identity Met Gala - Arrivals

Uh-oh. Kristen Stewart tends to bring controversy to The Fashion Police every time she pops up here, so all we’ll say about this is that:

 a) It’s a demi-shress: half dress, half net curtain

b) Actually, let’s just leave it at that, shall we?

    It could have been a really pretty long black gown. Without the curtain fabric, obviously.

    It would be a lovely dress if something was done about the lower half-finish it off, or chop it off. Also, she needs to learn how to pose (or smile).

    Shoes not blues

    I also dislike the unevenness of the neckline (in addition to the distressing shressness of course). It doesn’t look artful to me, it just looks like part of the dress has come undone and is making a run for it.

    I think I’ll save myself the heartburn and just move on to the rest of the gallery…

    I’m so glad you brought it up. It’s awful, just awful, and isn’t helped by the pose. She looks great when she wears ‘edgier’ dresses – I still maintain that Proenza Schouler was her finest moment – it was so ‘her’.

    Ugh – looks like she’s playing dress-up with a couple of bin-bags and an old bit of netting.

    It reminds me of that giant scrunchy that Madonna was wearing not so long ago…ugh!

    She always looks so awkward at these things. I wonder if people pressure her into going and just stuff into things, and she doesn’t have the spine to tell them to leave her be? She really just looks like she wants to go back to bed.

    I don’t like this at all, it looks awkward, like it doesn’t fit. The stark cut-off from the black fabric to the sheer is awkward too. I think some shiny bangles would have looked nice. Her hair looks kind of strange too. This whole outfit is awkward!

    i have never seen kristen stewart pose naturally. she always looks like she`s out of place and uncomfortable.
    i don`t like this dress at all, it`s an ugly design.

    I am sorry, as crazy as this gown may be (the lower half of this thing is for lack of a better term, ugly), Ms. Stewart is far worse.
    Youre wearing a CHANEL dress that costs thousands of dollars, for the love of the fashion gods. please
    PLEASE
    learn how to smile and pose. I would kill to wear a chanel dress!
