Mary-Kate Olsen - Met Ball 2012

Mary-Kate Olsen hits the red carpet at the 2012 Met Ball held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

The 25-year-old fashion designer wore a gown by her label, The Row. She finished off her look with Christian Louboutin shoes and Fred Leighton jewels.

Last year, Mary-Kate attended the gala with her sister Ashley. No twin this time around!

This year’s Costume Institute Gala Benefit – celebrating the opening of the Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibition – is co-chaired by Carey Mulligan, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, and designer Miuccia Prada.

  • Del

    Not going to lie… This scared me a little bit.
    I don’t understand how she designs such beautiful clothing with her sister, but can’t seem to get it together on the red carpet.

  • tara

    It’s like the Olsen twins hate looking pretty. Like it’s beneath them.

  • lisa

    So terrible.

  • kiki

    no this is just a big no. she looks her character in beastly.

  • frightening

    Poor granny put her finger in the socket.

  • ?

    Is that a bag or Chinese take-out?

  • AB

    The dress is amazing ! But I don’t understand that hairstyle and the make-up is bad…

  • ladybug

    It looks like she found this rummaging through a garbage bin. Which might also explain the hair.

  • Fran

    What to say about this mess.,,,

  • Lil

    Whoa, she looks old.

  • the_boyfriend

    total show stopper, dress of the night imo.
    love it.

  • Be

    Those aren’t strands of hair. She was electrocuted on her way up the red carpet. Leather shoes and too much friction. HAHAHA!

  • eed

    Absolutely amazing, Wow. Love this girl. MK !

  • ex nihilo

    angelic with a twist of evil. me likey.

  • Lennie

    Tragic. She looks like something that would scamper under the refrigerator if you turned on the lights.

  • dizzy

    Ay, dios mio…

  • lily

    those twins are just freaky. I feel sorry for them it is like they =have a defect that makes them so trolly. weird. And their style is awful.

  • Rebecca

    Eeek! *runs away to hide*

  • http://website,computer Dave From Canada

    That hair-style(?!!), the black funeral dress and the sad, vacant eyes make her look like something straight out of Fright Night.

  • K.

    The best thing about these photos is that awesome British actor Bill Nighy is in the background.

  • mariuppie

    Hmmm. Star Wars Costume.

  • Peapo

    I don’t know why but I like it. Maybe because it adheres to the costume aspect of the night. She looks like she’s playing a role, a spooky one, but also beautiful in a delicate way. I don’t know I just kind of like it.

  • Emma

    I want to love it, but it’s just okay. It’s always a tad frustrating when ridiculously beautiful people make themselves look rather unfortunate.

  • sophie

    And she’s suppoosed to be 25, she looks like 60.

  • lala

    She looks like she’s really sucking in her cheeks :\

  • siennagold

    One of the worst dresses in this ball. Her hair reminds me of Medusa.

  • AHHHHH?!?!?!


  • I

    What is wrong with you, Mary Kate?
    Why don’t you show your REAL beauty to the world and do this???

  • Vikious


  • Natrio

    She looks like she is sucking and biting her cheeks all the time

  • lafamepoma

    hello grandma

  • alejandra

    oh my goodness gracious

    what THE HELL?

  • Scary Species

    Your comments are the best. I am so proud of everyone on here that gets it about this SCARY SPECIE. The gown makes Mary Kate feel close to the darkside where she originates from. The hair comes from her monkey ancestry. Monkies are not exactly known for slick hairstyles. Really what she is trying to do is intimidate human beings with her scary gown. Nice try Mary Scary.

  • Loving Sisters

    Mary Kate you have such a trustworthy and loving sister. She made some
    kind of deal with Just Jared to block any comments that might criticize Ashley but it’s just fine for the public to criticize Mary Kate. My comments
    go through just fine when your picture is on Just Jared but Ashley is protected. Some sister you have got there Mary Kate.
