Met Bal 2013, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Madonna, Worst dressed

The Met Ball took place last night in New York and the celebrities came out in the droves for it. Many were dressed incredibly (the Olsen twins and Rooney Mara were my favourites) but a few came out looking like real shockers.

Let's start with Miley Cyrus. Apparently she is channeling the 'punk' trend but personally I think she resembles a porcupine more than anything else. Her Marc Jacobs dress is pretty chic and unoffensive - the black netting is fierce and the nude slip underneath is working perfectly. But why, God why, did she decide to spike her hair? Now for Katy Perry and her Dolce & Gabbana monstrosity. This collection was one of my favourites from Fall 2013, but this dress is not doing Katy any favours. The elbow length sleeves are too full and the mid-calf length is unflattering with the black ankle strap heels. Isn't this like the first lesson in styling? Never pair a dark ankle strap with a midi-length skirt. It doesn't look good on anyone. To top off the golden mosaic printed dress Katy chose to wear some massively oversized earrings and a crown on her head. This is direct proof that copying a look straight from the runway is often not a good idea. Sack the stylist love and the makeup artist. You look way too pale and vampy with that dark lippy. Nicki Minaj, this is quite chic by your standards. The Tommy Hilfiger dress is minimal and paired back but the cut out waist looks cheap. Paired with your bigger than life hair, it all just looks a bit dated. Let's close with a discussion on Madonna. This look is so bad for so many reasons that I don't even know where to start. Let's begin with the disturbing fact that she's only wearing a jacket. Where are her trousers? Why is she wearing a dog collar?  And what's with the girly pink pointed stilettos? They don't go. This Givenchy Haute Couture jacket is fugly. The fishnets belong on a cheap stripper and it looks like Anna Wintour lent her a wig. Ladies, get it together. Last night wasn't your best performance style wise.

p.s. as a couple of you rightly pointed out on Twitter, Kim Kardashian was also amongst the worst dressed at the Met Ball. If you haven't seen her floral horror check it out here, complete with matching gloves.
