    Whats with all the wacky outfits?
    Kate looks like she’s dressed for a funeral…

  • toni

    She looks good…

  • Funeral?

    How many funerals have you attended with the skirt cut open to the thigh? LOL I think she looks quite elegant and classic.

  • llk

    I think she looks beautiful even in that so-so dress.

  • gigi

    Finally, I think we have a winner! I love the dress. However, I don’t understand why she wore her hair down, it should have been worn up in a chignon. Her hair is obstructing the main detail of the garment which is the delicate stain trimmed collar.

  • http://justjared pathetic

    She attends every year she has nothing better to do .

  • She looks Amazing!

    I think this is my favorite dress/hair/make-up.

    @ #2 Not every dress that is black automatically means its funeral wear, I think its a very classy and sophisticated dress.

    Very nice, Kate! Black is definitely one of your best colors! I love your hair worn down like this in soft waves, slightly parted on the side. Very elegant. It reminds me just a bit of Lauren Bacall. The dress looks beautiful on you. I like the combination of sheer floral mesh lace and solid fabric panels. The scalloped lace collar is a nice touch on the neckline. Your jewelry is kept simple but still has impact. Your make up is lovely – especially that perfect shade of red lipstick. It’s not too strong and not washed out.

    Perfect!

    You look absolutely lovely here, Kate. I mean than sincerely! The hair, make up and dress are all lovely.

    I cannot stand Stella McCartney.
    She is nasty and her clothes are always under par.
    WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • kramer

    Pathetic is the one who is not invited but rather bought her way in. Kate pulled the dress well.

  • Ethan

    Stella McCartney is getting away with murder in the fashion industry.
    What is going on?

  • You go girl!

    She looks absolutely stunning, doesn’t she? Classic look, black is always in style. She gets invited every year by great designers. I call that respect in the industry.

  • anon

    Gorgeous dress! Perfect with the blonde hair and red lips. Classic!

  • mertz

    yeah i agree with anon. great makeup. good finger wave barrel curls, and also the stella is never wrong. good on her.

  • erinrae

    Kate looks beautiful in her Stella, but what is Stella wearing? Eiw.

  • neelmani

    one word………………..GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • @ pathetic

    She’s attends every year because she is invited by the top designers in the fashion world. Pretty remarkable considering she’s an actress and not even a full time model.

    She looks lovely btw, Go Kate!

  • cutie

    beautiful. one of the best dressed of the night.

  • bfan

    kate bosworth is a class act beautiful as always!
    kate hudson is a stupid huge mouth attention whore as always

  • lovely

    Kate looks gorgeous! Hair, makeup and dress are all perfect, very elegant, very classy. I wish we also had pictures of her with James, they’re such a beautiful couple.

  • minx

    I’m usually not a huge fan of her style, but she has the Old Hollywood glam down pat here and looks beautiful.

  • csxyz

    She looks great. Beautiful and sophisticated

  • Varushkha

    So far from the pictures i’m seeing at tfs, these girls are the standout for me…

    Kate was pretty, very classic. Miranda was there but nobody seemed to care much because real models were attending the event. Oh yeah what a trashy outfit Miranda wore too. How unclassy of her to wear at a formal event.

  • Liz

    Best look of the night! Classy, glamorous, perfection. Good for her.

  • http://justjared.buzznet.com

    This dress was pure tacky.

    But Kate looked really nice, the makeup and dress was classic.

  • blake

    Kate looks good and most posters at a very prominent fashion agrees on Kate’s sense of style.

    A bit info..

    According to an article, Bar was invited by Vogue. Quite ironic that she never posed for that kind of magazine. Also sad that most of the supermodels and topmodels are not present on this year’s MET.

  • Sophie

    Beautiful..best dressed by far, she looks amazing

  • http://Thedressisadorable YES!

    Beautiful dress, gorgeous hairdo (love the waves!). Sleeves should have been longer and not 3/4 of the hand.

    But overall- stunning!

    This is how a movie star looks like.

  • blake@…

    Quiet…you’re giving JJ a hint…

    Based on the pictures, I’ve noticed that a lot of designers, models, and actresses who are written on the invited list are absent from the event and a lot who are not written on the invited list are present …

    WEIRD

  • Lynne

    she’s so beautiful, especially her eyes.

  • jena

    Kate really looks beautiful in her Stella Mccartney dress. Most of the posters at The Fashion Spot say that Kate is one of the best dressed in the event.

    OMG

    I also saw pictures of one of my fave model Doutzen, she’s being invited by Philip Lim. Too bad Adriana couldn’t make it to the event.

  • tracy

    Spectacular! That’s the look of a movie star.

  • zoe

    she looks really beautiful. but i dunno…im not really feeling this look for her…she’s young and shouldve worn something more fun like last year. but she still looks good and she took a risk.

  • @36

    I think her dress is gorgeous but the fun was probably creating that 1940s Hollywood/ Veronica Lake look.

  • star

    All the Kates are so beautiful at the event except for Kate Moss lol

  • Nic

    hahhaa, bruce willis looks like he’s about to drool at the back of pic 3!

  • lana

    BEST DRESSED! she looks AMAZING!!!! I want her hair!

  • mia

    Where is fame hungry Bloom and his even hungrier gf Kerr? Did they join the party? Or they were NOT invited? JJ, can you survive that?

  • Betina

    Classy! Pretty! I love it!

  • mia

    I just saw JJ latest post.
    If I understand correctly, Miranda Kerr attended AFTER PARTY at Monkey bar, but WAS NOT on MET costume gala. Right? At the gala , there was NO ONE photo of Miranda. She went to the Monkey bar for the AFTER PARTY, but actually she was not on the real party . LOL! She is so pathetic. Bar Rafaeli and Heidi were on the real MET party , but Miranda was obviously good enough only for the Monkey bar. I can hardly wait for the Mirandas shippers explanation!
    Kate was perfectly looking and INSIDE the party, Miranda went to the Monkey bar for the AFTER PARTY. It is so ok.

  • bella

    Hair and makeup are pretty. The dress may be better if it were shorter.

  • @43

    Miranda was @ the Met Ball but not many pictures of her. Kate looked stunning absolutely stunning!

  • Elegant

    Definitely looks as though she was going for an elegant but slightly vampy ’40′s look. She reminds me abit here of Kim Bassinger in “L.A. Confidential.” Kate’s a softly-feminine girl who wears classic/elegant very well imo.

  • http://justjared @41

    Well Orlando WAS YOU KNOW DOING WHAT EVERY ACTOR IS SUPPOSED TO BE DOING FINISHING HIS NEW MOVIE THERE IS A REAL POSSIBILITY HE WILL BE IN CANNES (YOU KNOW THE MOVIE FESTIVAL KATE WOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN TO IF IT WASN’T FOR HIM TAKING HER THERE BACK IN 2004)AND HOPEFULLY HE WILL BE IN AUSTRALIA THIS SUMMER TO DO ANOTHER MOVIE THAT MY DEAR IS CALLED AN ACTOR IN DEMAND UNLIKE YOUR NEVER BEEN Z-LIST WHO WOULD ATTEND EVERY EVENT 3 YEARS IN A ROW JUST TO GET PICTURED AND GET ATTENTION .
    Miranda was at the gala looking incredibly sexy and beautiful just perfect .

    And another question aren’t you ashamed to be a fan of Kate Bosworth???????????

  • Jasmine

    Ha ha! Look at Bruce Willis! He can’t keep his eyes off Kate.

  • Angela

    b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l!

    she is the most decent looking one.

  • stefanie

    Wow, she actually looks quite good. Glad she put on a little weight.
    She’s look much more healthy and happy.

    Good for Kate!
