Met Gala: The Weird, the Wacky — and the Worst

The looks that made our jaws drop for all the wrong reasons.

Along with the best and the brightest looks at the Met Gala — Amal Clooney, Anne Hathaway, Julianne Moore, Amanda Seyfried, Sienna Miller, Rose Byrne — there had to be some... mistakes (to put it nicely).

While Cher has always been the most outrageous costume wearer at any event she attends, at this year's Met Ball she was — for her — absolutely subdued in Marc Jacobs black sequins. Some of this year's A-list guests were clearly trying to pick up the mantle of most "costumed" — meaning that what they’re wearing is not so much fashion as theater (and sometimes circus). But while we can point fingers, we would probably be bored without them. After all, they definitely give us something to talk about.

Jamie Bochert in Marc Jacobs

The top model looks like Cher, and now she’s emulating the legendary performer's 1986 Oscars look in this Marc Jacobs-designed — um, we're not even sure what to call it. But Jacobs does have a sense of humor. And he did dress Cher.

Andre Leon Talley

Talley's signature voluminous cape, kimono or caftan is usually black. In red (an ode to China), however, it looks like he went out in his curtains.

Cara Delevingne in Stella McCartney

We can only assume this was Delevingne’s idea and not McCartney’s. When the world’s top model goes garish, you know she needs even more attention.

The dresses, though over the top, aren't bad on their own — but the gloves just kill them. Just because Amal Clooney did them well at the 2015 Golden Globes doesn’t mean everyone can pull them off.

Kim Kardashian in Cavalli,  Jennifer Lopez in Versace, and Beyonce in Givenchy

If you must go naked, ladies — like, really naked — please do it at the Grammys or MTV Awards. The Met Gala is a venue for clothes, not anatomy.

Miley Cyrus in Alexander Wang and Elizabeth Banks in Michael Kors

We know the bare waistline is in, and both performers have small ones, but these revealing cut-outs are best left for MTV. Plus, there’s nothing Chinese about these looks.

Chloe Sevigny in J.W. Anderson

To be nice, one could say that the actress' ensemble is rather fun. But if we're being honest, it's rather weird.
