  • Mariah

    Don’t like the hair, don’t like the dress or whatever that is.

    You’ve had better ones Leighton

  • http://Thedressisadorable YES!

    It screams “look at me”! “I want attention”!
    When a girl is willing to look hideous just to get some attention, it’s a bit pathetic.

  • http://Thedressisadorable YES!

    The hair and makeup are actually wonderful.
    Such a shame she ruined it with the “outfit”.

  • soso

    She is definitely unique!!! Love her even more… It is a costume gala.

  • sem


  • Jules

    Ugly!!! ew…

  • sos


  • zoe

    she definitely stood out but…it really is quite bad. hate the hair and the outfit. she needs to go back to being a brunette

  • Natasha

    Her outfit is a nightmare. BUT HER HAIR!!!! I get that she is a natural blonde but really… IT DOES NOT SUIT HER. I really hope she goes back to dark hair.

  • Nativenyker

    She looked like a wayward clown….

    Rants, Thoughts & Merde

  • Bubbaness

    Oh, sweetpea. Don’t wear anything that you can’t pull off.

  • MermaiD

    Love it!! her style is unique not grey like the rest…

  • [~☆Fug Face Man!ston☆~]

    it’s official: no one likes it. hahahahahahaha..

  • Jenn

    Clearly this girl can pull off anything and can wear anything.. especially if she looks good in that! lol

  • Deeleym

    if i see 1 more celeb standing in a pidgeon toed pose, i swear, i’m gonna run amok. i even saw a pic of ……..oh, i forget her name, but a really sophisticated older model doing it. she looked so stupid. can anyone tell me why they do it?!!

  • Saudia

    she’s gorgeous ! she looks like a barbie doll

  • jason

    Didn’t anyone explain to Leighton that “Costume Institute Gala” didn’t mean to actually wear a costume?


    She looks gorgeous no matter what she’s wearing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Still i prefer her hair darker…

  • WTF??


  • Osakhomen

    Don’t you people understand that at this Gala you where out-of-the-ordinary things?! Of course it looks weird… it’s meant to be that way sillies.

  • sohpia

    WTF?? is she insane or something? probably she was drunk. lol. i wonder what all the other sane actors and actresses who looked ravishing at the gala thought? maybe they pitied Leighton regarding the fact that she was at least able to entertain them with her hideous outfit. its high time that Leighton gets a fashion sense, and that’s one thing money cant buy them.

  • holy


    like a pre-teen experimenting on makeup for the first time.

  • abfan123

    her confidence alone makes her look ten times better than everyone there. her only competition in my mind is RiRi who also looked hella fierce.

  • omg

    all the dresses/outfits worn to the event were fugly!
    What is up with her fashion lately!

  • yummy

    she is beautiful,love her dress<333

  • momo

    this is just horrible….:S poor girl but i still adore her.

  • jen

    isn’t it a met COSTUME GALA or sumtin..?? so it must really look horrible or weird :)) right?

  • Chuck

    th outfit is great, but she, like blair should have a more simple and chic style,
    her outfit, hair, is awesome, but I’d rather she had insisted on other style, for life I mean

  • french

    Louis Vuitton have to stop to make clothes, but !!! the shoose are asome, the make-up is very pretty and finaly I say YESSSSSS.

  • tamio


  • LolaSvelt

    All you people complaining about her outfit, it’s a costume gala? Did you want her to come to the event with some boring long dress?

  • gglover


  • mickey

    Were these people told to look hideous. All that money and the level of bad is just astounding. Yikes. I understand what the Gala is, but if the stuff is so bad and the people wearing it look so ghastly that it makes your eyes bleed then it doesn’t work. There is good art and bad art.

  • lise

    I like it, and agree with Osakhomen about this Gala, it’s not like she was going to WHOLE FOODS dressed like this. I think it’s pretty interesting, and like the makeup and hair as well.

  • Susie

    She’s showing a sense of humor. It’s definitely better and more fun than what Madonna wore…check it out.

  • jaye



    SEND IN THE CLOWNS! I hope she got paid to wear this getup.

  • mertz

    lol. so you know what it’s the same reaction i had last night/this morning. it kinda makes my stomach curl. i don’t mind the print, and i like leighton and even LV, but really this look is not happening. too much blusher, and the whole thing makes me think pinata…this look should be paird right along with the madonna look. yes we know it’s a costume ball and the muse inspires the designer but really. after seeing a lot of these dresses i have to say it really wasn’t a strong year for fashion at the met. maybe if leighton had done without the legging thing which makes her legs look stocky, but then again i could just be a hater. i don’t fault her for being interesting or going out on a limb with this outfit but really…it wasn’t necessary.

  • Jen


  • mimi

    I adore it. I like how crazy and cute she looks at the same time. She has looks of a dool, she can dress like a doll, especially if it’s a costume gala, right? this girl has some balls ;))) I think I’m beginning to like her.

  • laura

    the outfit is not cute, but she always looks gorgeous!

  • andie

    Very edgy and avante-gard! A great statement for the met gala theme.

  • tory

    she is so beautifull!
    I love her (L)

  • Laura

    When I saw Louis Vuitton runway show pictures yesterday, I thought this dress would be perfect for her. THEN BOOM! She wears it. This is one of the biggest coincidences that EVER happened to me! OMGGGGGGGG!

  • erinrae

    Lose the leggings and it could have been gorgeous.
