The MET Costume Institute Gala 2009: Victoria Beckham in Louis Vuitton

Spl96754_020[1]

We must have missed the memo that said everyone had to wear Louis Vuitton to the 2009 Costume Institute Gala. It was probably lost in the post, along with our invitation.

Victoria Beckham certainly got the message, though. We like this Louis Vuitton dress (the shoes, not so much), but are withholding the Gold Star on this occasion because our fingers are just itching to snip off that train. Just us?

    It’s gorgeous – train or no train, but I actually think that the train makes it stand out from all the other short, draped dresses in a good way.

    Hah, those shoes are so 1990’s “Posh Spice”. The dress is just a “meh” from me.

    the dress if absolutely gorgeous, i would prefer a shorter train.

    I think the dress is gorgeous with the train, but I definitely agree, and think it would look much better without it.
    And yeah..what are those shoes?!

    I prefer my shoes testicle-free, thanks.

    Shoes = yikes! Dress = ok, although the thing on her shoulder looks like something your great-aunt would pin to the front of her twin set, and I always think a train looks so wrong with a short skirt, messes up the proportions.
