Umm, NOOO!!

# 2

WTF is that? She looks like a doll.

# 3


# 4

it’s definitely an eye catcher.
i kind of like it.

# 5

it is greaat! i like this custume!

# 6

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

You’ve had better ones Leighton

# 7

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.

# 8

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

# 9

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

Ugly!!! ew…


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

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.

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

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

[~☆Fug Face Man!ston☆~] @ 05/05/2009 at 9:26 am

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

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

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?!!

she’s gorgeous ! she looks like a barbie doll

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…


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.

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.


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

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.

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

she is beautiful,love her dress<333

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

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

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

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

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?

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

she is so beautifull!
I love her (L)

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!

Lose the leggings and it could have been gorgeous.

Ok–where’s the fashion police when you need them? My mom just called wondering what happened to her livingroom curtains.

I love the girl but I realllly don’t like this.

oh my god somebody get this girl a stylist. :|

LOVE THE SHOES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love Leighton, but what the heck is she wearing? I guess it is a “costume” ball, so I’ll have to forgive her.

Just no. Ew.

she’s stunning! leighton can pull anything off cos of her confidence – my respect for her doubled like a hundred times. where’s teh fun in wearing a drab ball gown to a costume party?? it’s a FASHION HIT for me!

disappointed @ 05/06/2009 at 4:07 am

WTF was she thinking. i mean even if her stylist was a loser what happened to her?? its got attention written ALL OVER. her hair sucks big time

i love her…but this apperarance is just for this purpose….anyway not her best time <3

o wow this is a wicked outfit, fab. it suits her to a T

o wow this is a wicked outfit, fab. it suits her to a T

I always thought of her as someone with a good taste for clothes but she totally disappointed me this time. I mean, gosh, I dont think i would wear something like that nor even if i was getting paid for…

She looks like a doll!! Now I don’t know in this case if it’s positive or negative, but…I think she look totally adorable. Yes it is a costume gala, she dared and I think in a weird way, she scored!

Awww, she looks amazing! Love the hair, the make up and the costume of course! So different but so gorgeous! Leighton <3

She looks totally amazing! Totally out of the box.

it’s cute. she’s young she’s allowed to dress up.

and least she’s not dressed like 90% of the models who look like they’re ready to go clubbin’.

I actually kind of like the dress. It might have worked if not for those silly pants/tights. They ruin the whole look.

gosh it was meant to be doll-like and sort of silly! by the way she looks great!!!

i usually love her clothes but this time i was really desappointed
