Models at the 2014 Met Gala

Models stormed the Met Gala in droves, demanding to be loved by the fashion industry.

One of the most perfect Met Gala gowns in history. Dramatic, thematic, and drop-dead gorgeous.

A stunning color and an unforgettable silhouette. I don’t recommend trying to pull off this gown unless 1940s ball gown couture is on the menu, but the best Met Gala looks are the ones you couldn’t possibly wear anywhere else.

There will never be a major red carpet event without a major diva in a major red ball gown. Arizona Muse filled that role and made my heart sing with her perfectly tailored look.

It’s not the most original choice, but she wears the shit out of it. (Then again, this is the Models post. They’re pretty much all wearing the shit out of everything, because THAT’S THEIR JOBS.)

Sexy and chic, if not particularly theme-adherent.

Cara looks fan-fucking-tastic, but let’s not pretend this is anywhere near formal enough for the event. (Not that she needed to wear a gown, but a tux would have been delightful.) But I suppose if you’re going to break the dress code, you might as well break it hard. Also, her hair is amazing.

Points for drama but this skirt might just be a bit too ginormous for even a model as fierce as Karen Elson to pull off. I love the strange neckline, and I think her ginger hair looks fantastic with the baby pink gown, but the red lipstick wasn’t a great choice.

Fun in a vintage-costumey way, but way too casual.

It’s a beautiful gown, but it seems more suited to a Reese Witherspoon or an Amy Adams or a Jessica Alba. (You know. Someone boring.) I expect the models to wear shit no one else can, and this is just an ordinary red carpet gown in a particularly great fabric.

Shamefully understyled. Stick-straight hair and no jewelry? How dare you, Ms. Lima. And the gown is interesting, but I don’t think those textures work together. I know the hard/soft contrast is the point, but it just feels a touch awkward.

A braid and zombie lips? Go home, Joan Smalls. You’re drunk.

If you’re going to wear a suit, wear a more statement-making one than this. I’ve seen this look about a thousand times before.

Careful, Toni. You’re veering into prom territory, and NOBODY wants that.

I thought this was pretty unremarkable – too long, and weirdly drape-y in the torso, but not particularly terrible. Then I saw the back:

That is just the saddest bow in the whole, wide world. It adds nothing positive to this look and only furthers its disheveled vibe.

A sad, dirty color, and no part of it even remotely fits her.

Naomi. You’re wearing pool floaties made of cotton candy. TO THE MET GALA. Pull yourself together.

The sad thing is, if the theme were “Drag Queens at an Old-Timey Western Saloon,” Kate Upton would have out-dressed them all.
