It was bound to happen; Lupita’s first major miss step.

did she ad some hair on her head? is she getting ready to play rambo or josephine baker?

Someone should have told Lupita that this was a theme ball and all the dresses should be like these ones.

Uh, uh.

Lupita…..WHY? :(

A FISHING NET+PARROT @ 05/05/2014 at 8:35 pm


A fishing net that caught a parrot….hahahaha

Far out man
like wow

LOL, she is so funny, good choice Lupita!
She is always gorgeous.

I think she got the theme wrong.

Girl never gets it wrong on the red carpet but decides to get it very wrong at the Met Ball. Lol. She’s still beautiful though, her dress not so much :-/

Awesome. This is a creative take on the flapper look. She looks cool as f*ck.

Looks like a bag of avocados

Inappropiate @ 05/05/2014 at 8:40 pm


She looks ugly with that hair.

Let alone the fact the dress is inappropiate……

This is a miss.

simple and true. a miss.

You guys know the met gala is about pushing the limits in terms of fashion right??? like, it’s not meant to be about who looks the prettiest or cutest in a ball gown. lupita did her job, she looks great

I have to give her a pass this time. She usually looks amazing!

Looks like a Halloween costume.

Lupita’s outfit looks like a carnival dress next to Karoline Kurkova, Charlize Theron…..

BIG FAILURE @ 05/05/2014 at 8:48 pm


It’s NOT about pushing the limits.This year the Met Gala was a homage to these kind of ball gowns.

Lupita’s outfit looks like a fishing net.

AshleyLove @ 05/05/2014 at 8:49 pm

GMA was just talking about her never missing in her fashion choices. I guess that’s going to change today. Where is going? To an Indian convention.

On the other hand, Rihanna looks GREAT.

What a bunch of unimaginative country hicks posting on here. The girl is fab, funny and gorgeous!

OK here are the good points. I love her hair and makeup up and the shape and cut of the dress is really flattering on her. Now for the not so good points: I hate the colour of the dress and its netting. The whole I can’t stand. Epic fail.

Her hair is just as horrible as her dress.

The dress would get pass if it wasn’t for that horrid head band, I agree though that she is a beautiful lady


Karoline Kurkova dress is imaginative and gorgeous.

Lupita is the loser of the night.

This is what MET GALA was about.
It seems that Lupita missed the meme.

why bother @ 05/05/2014 at 9:05 pm

no effort here

Ball Gown @ 05/05/2014 at 9:06 pm

This is what MET GALA was about.
It seems that Lupita missed the meme.

She wants to be cast in Tron.

Hell nooooooo! Lupita have you lost your mind?

Too many wrongs to make it right.

In the words of the late, great Whitney Houston “H#LL TO THE NO”

think it would look better without the headband

Beyond the dress, it’s her hair that’s scaring me. Her stylists are suffering from creative fatigue. They’ve been going downhill since she won the Oscar.

The dress is hideous.And she is ugly no matter what she wears.Too much overated and too much exposed.And yet no good roles in any movies to come.

Lupita is human–her first fashion misstep.


Go back to you trailer!

awful and doesn’t make any sense for the event.

WhoDressesThem @ 05/06/2014 at 12:39 am

This is what happens when she gets to choose her own outfit

She looks ridiculous and it doesn’t ven fit the ‘Charles James’ theme. I’ll always give people credit if they take a risk but are at least trying to adhere to the theme but this is just a mess. At least her make-up and face are pretty and she seems to be having fun I suppose!

BrainScience @ 05/06/2014 at 9:21 am

She’s ugly.

The only reason you think she’s pretty is cause the media keeps telling you that she’s pretty and so you believe it cause you’re a follower. Then they continue to bombard you with pictures of her and the same comments, hello repitition wires your brain to think you’re the one who finds her pretty. You’re brainwashed!

I see her without the rose colored glasses and trust me she’s not pretty. Her eyes are bloodshot.

U r blind nd color-struck. The media has brainwashed people for centuries that dark is ugly and manly nd u accepted. I bet you don’t find people with lupita’s skin tone/ hair as pretty.
She has the perfect face…perfect facial symetry according to the scientific formula for perfect human face.Her bone structure is AMAZING

It’s okay if u don’t find her pretty…there are many that thought she was beautiful before the mass media exposure.
You just have to deal with the fact that a lot people genuinely find her pretty/beautiful.

I like her dress. There’s some fun and spunk in the style.

@BrainScience: Welcome to my world where blonde hair and blue eyes are ALWAYS referred to as beautiful and from what I’ve seen, most blondes are average at best! Everyone keeps telling us it’s soooooo beautiful!?!

you ve kenyan’s down….wish you would ve come bak home and we would ve made a better dress…lol
