Gisele Bundchen in red McQueen at the Met Gala: gorgeous or bland?


I have a question: how whipped is Tom Brady? He always attends these big fashion events with his wife, she gets the final say in his hair, and you know she dresses him too. While I don’t hate on men being whipped as a general rule, I will hate on Tom Brady for a moment – he needs to grow a set and stand up to his wife, at least about the hair. The hair is ridiculous. He’s a big boy, he should get a haircut.


As for Gisele… meh. She’s one of the few girls wearing McQueen, but I’m not sure if this gown is the best representation of McQueen’s style in total, you know? Because I thought it was Oscar de la Renta. It looks like something Jennifer Garner would wear for the Oscars – not bad, per se, but not for Gisele, and not for this event. I also find Gisele’s styling to be blah – she doesn’t look “made up” at all. She looks like she just came from the beach, which doesn’t “go” with the dress.

I guess I should say something about those now-defunct pregnancy rumors too – I don’t see much of a belly on Gisele in these photos, so she was probably just bloated that day that I claimed she looked pregnant.

    Wonder why she is trying so hard…she looks gorgeous.

  2. Lisa Turtle says:

    She looks hellva lot better than Lea Michele, who you sang praises for.

  3. Delta Juliet says:

    I’m not usually a fan of Giselle’s but wow…I think she looks amazing. The dress, the body and her HAIR! SO envious.

    On to Tom….I have had the hots for him since I first saw him step on the field to take over for an injured Drew Bledsoe. He’s been my dream-boy for YEARS! But the hair…I.just.can’t. He’s officially killed the hotness :( It didn’t have to end this way Tommy!

  4. OtherChris says:

    Is there a third choice? Because if there is, I’d like to vote “smug.”

  5. spinner says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen her try this hard. She looks gorgeous.

    Dress – B O R I N G
    Gisele – B O R I N G
    Tom Brady – B O R I N G

  7. Kitten says:

    for a professional model, she poses like a 5 year old in a mirror.

  8. Emily says:

    Who cares about Gisele when Chase Crawford’s looking all dapper in the background?

  9. danielle352 says:

    I think the dress is gorg, but it’s completely negated by what’s his face’s behind-the-ear hair. Blech!

  10. Kloops says:

    Meh. I know, intellectually, that she’s beautiful, but she just doesn’t strike a chord for me. Pretty all round, but nothing spectacular. Husband looks like a doofus.

  11. Ashley says:

    I think she looks good here. I usually find that she looks manly and bland, but not in these pictures.

  12. Fabianne says:

    Yeah, this dress has been done before. And his hair! Ugh.

  13. brin says:

    She looks beautiful (and knows it), he looks whipped (and knows it).

  14. rep says:

    Barbie & Ken. With the difference that my Ken had a smarter look, and a better hairdo. And showed more vitality than this one. Because it really looks like this Barbie has been dragging her Ken around and about for years now.

  15. Terry says:

    She looks surprisingly great here.

  16. Victoire says:

    I think she looks great, I don’t see a problem :r

  17. Janeth says:

    She looks AMAZING! Tom looks great.

  18. TeeTee says:

    she looks pretty to me, I just think that she should have worn her hair up with dangling earrings..

    I didn’t realize how tiny she is..

    and she is not my fav person

  19. kazoo says:

    love love love this dress. so much.

  20. Rasputina says:

    I LOVE the train on it. So beautiful, a wonderful texture.

  21. Mshuffleupagus says:

    Cate Blanchett already wore this exact same dress on the cover of Vogue. Suck it, Giselle! Cate’s sloppy seconds!

  22. serena says:

    Gorgeous dress.
    It’s not beach style at all, it’s simply lovely.

    Yeah Tom need to cut his frigging hair, he’s too ridiculous.

  23. Mairead says:

    It’s a beautiful dress and stunning colour. Gisele does look gorgeous, but yeah, a tiny bit dull. If only Christina Hendricks could have been press ganged into wearing it.

  24. Melissa says:

    I’m with Ashley – she looks good here. I usually find her to be very masculine looking, but she actually looks feminine here, and it’s not just the dress, it’s her face, too.

    That said, her husband looks quite feminine here as well.

  25. Jane says:

    The dress and her figure looks great, but I have never thought she was especially pretty. I once read about a model that said being a model doesn’t mean you have to be pretty, it means you have to be photogenic. I think that applies to Gisele. Nothing special, just tall, slim and photogenic.

  26. lucy2 says:

    I like that gown, very pretty. But ugh, his hair!

  27. Tia C says:

    Kind of an unimaginative design for McQueen. And I don’t think red really looks good on anyone, but that’s just my personal taste. As far as his hair goes, my suspicion would be that is his choice, not hers. He looks like he thinks he looks really cool with that ugly ‘do.

  28. Janna says:

    This vintage Alexander McQueen is breathtakingly stunning and the color works so well on her and especially her height shows it off. She looks better than anyone did at the Oscars, even. That’s how much I love this dress on her.

    I thought Madonna had the best look of the night from head to toe, but I give it to Giselle. Just beautiful.

  29. Marjalane says:

    Could Tom Brady look more vacant? I doubt if goes to the bathroom without her permission. I think Giselle is trying to fashion him into some kind of European jet set look….and it’s failing.

  30. Hakura says:

    She looks beautiful. But the dress lacks visual interest overall. (Especially as compared to what others are doing.)

    Ken should be seen & not heard. xD As bitchy as Giselle is on a regular basis, I wouldn’t argue either, probably.

  31. bagladey says:

    This dress is not a noteworthy Mc Queen production and Gisele looks just as run-of-the-mill in it. I guess they’re still working on Tom’s bald spot; if it weren’t for gossip, that cover-up ploy would have been brilliant.

  32. Irene says:

    What beach do you go to?! She looks amazing!

  33. Nanea says:

    I like the dress very much, even if it’s not your typical AMcQ.

    Those two though seem vapid.

  34. Isa says:

    Normally, roots don’t bug me but it’s the first thing I thought of when I clicked on the link. In some of the pictures it doesn’t look so bad but she should’ve had them done.

    Tom’s hair looks soooo gross. Looks like the hair of some creepy foreign dude that starts following you down the street, yelling stuff you don’t understand.

  35. DGO says:

    I’m sorry, I can’t see Giselle’s dress. I’m too distracted by Tom Brady’s douchey princess hair.

  36. gabs says:

    I never would’ve guessed it was mcqueen. You are right about it not representing his style for the night. She looks gorgeous though. Shes GISELLE.

    “She looks hellva lot better than Lea Michele, who you sang praises for.”

    I second that. I don’t see how you loved lea who was more bland and can trash this one.

  37. Kaiser says:

    Re: Lea Michele’s dress. Lea looked good for Lea, and the color worked on her and I enjoyed it for what it was – a pretty dress on a TV Girl. Gisele is the biggest supermodel in the world, and she’s wearing something that looks like Jennifer Garner’s reject, and her hair & makeup is too beachy and inappropriate.

  38. kate says:

    nothing about Gisele freaking Bundchen is bland. Yes its simple but she looks like a freaking Supemrodel Goddess that she is! Step aside folks you can clearly see why she is called the last supermodel. Phenom. She tried the edgy daring thing the past 2 years at the met (black wang and blue versace) and you same people said it was not appropriate now you complain too boring. LMAO. so hilarious.

  39. pleae says:

    she’s made Vogue’s best dressed list. Will probably be on the next American Vogue cover and in the inside pages and on the next Met Gala Vogue book. Suck it!

  40. Ally says:

    She already made Vogue magaizne and W magazine best dressed list so it doesn’t matter what any anonymous hater thinks.

  41. Joe's Mom says:

    @brin, #14: LOL! I do love that dress though, and at least TB doesn’t have bangs!!!! I CANNOT STAND BANGS ON MEN.

  42. Abby says:

    She looks awesome. Brady, not so much. Hate his hair. But she is posing really hard.

  43. Hakura says:

    @Kate“Step aside folks you can clearly see why she is called the last supermodel. “

    She’s certainly pretty, but I think her arrogance makes it hard for me to really see it, most of the time. (But it’s the same for me with anyone who’s opinion of themself is higher than everyone else’s.)

    She has a very specific body type that I think sometimes leaves something lacking in evening gowns. Not enough curves in the hips.

  44. Joan says:

    I still love her. She’s down to earth and good-hearted.

  45. Roxy75 says:

    Why is she dating a complete nerd? He is way below her class….ya he makes alot of money, that’s about it. He’s a doofus

  46. zesty says:

    She needs to turn down the posing a bit…he looks ridiculous.

  47. Meaza says:

    who cares….look at chace crawford in the background. Lookin hottttttt

  48. Randy Moss says:

    They look more and more alike every time I see them.

  49. Snappyfish says:

    You know there is a difference between Alexander McQueen Haute Couture & an Alexander McQueen collection piece. This dress is part of the latter. McQueen is about cut & fit & style. So while people seem to think this dress isn’t McQueen-esque. It is v v much. Very few design houses can cut a dress or suit. Lee was a master & his house is brillant at it. While I am not a fan of Gisele she looks amazing & the dress is gorgeous.

    Tom Brady looks like & remains a douchebag

    Tom Brady looks

  50. MeriJaan says:

    I’d love to stomp on her train! I would totally do it if I knew I could get away with it. I cant stand her.

  51. Dana says:

    #24: I agree. I thought Ms. Blanchett wore it better. It’s a very dramatic dress, and Cate’s chameleon personality fits the garment to a T. Unfortunately for the Brady Bitch, the Middleton sisters gave Mr. McQueen the ultimate tribute last Friday. Sorry, Gislut.

  52. Estella says:

    I think the dress is beautiful but Gisele’s hair needs a touch up. As for her husband’s hair… blecchh!

  53. kazoo says:

    ” Looks like the hair of some creepy foreign dude that starts following you down the street, yelling stuff you don’t understand.”

    LMAO isa!!!

    @snappyfish, i agree. i keep coming back to admire it.

    oh, for anyone who is a fan of mcqueen, this Met exhibit will run from 5/4/11-7/31/11. if you’re in NY during that time, definitely check it out! i can’t wait to see it.

  54. ThirdChris says:

    She looks incredible, but Tom’s hair has Got. To. Go. Yikes.

  55. sasa says:

    It’s a pretty dress but I get the feeling that it doesn’t fit Gisele’s personality. I think of her as a sexy casual not a dramatic person. Even with her intense posing the only thing I could see when looking at the photos was Brady’s hair.

  56. Kim says:

    Pretty but she poses to much which embarrasses me for her.

    This isnt a runway Giselle its a red carpet. You pose but not like you do for a fashion mag. She is acting like she is filming a Victorias Secret ad w her head thrown back etc =(

  57. artsygirl says:

    you call her bloated?? then that means the majority of us women look 9 months pregnant then..

    i think she looks lovely and does the dress justice..not everyone, even in hollywood can pull that off.

  58. jemshoes says:

    Wow! If a petite (read: short!) girl like me tried to wear a dress like this, you wouldn’t be able to find me in it! Gisele looks amazing – every inch the supermodel celebrity. As for her husband’s hair – well, maybe she likes it longer on him and he does it to make her happy (which is kind of sweet). I can’t hate on him for this. Mr. jemshoes doesn’t let me dictate his hair style or his wardrobe. ;D

  59. Vesper says:

    I think she looks absolutely stunning in every way. My favourite look of the evening. The dress is far from boring. It’s dramatic yet sophisticated, with a wonderful fit.

  60. Lizz says:

    I wonder how many people tipped over or stepped on her dress.

  61. Newbie says:

    Ok. Going to the gym tomorrow.
    This look is making me pure. envy. She looks beautiful and stunning and amazing. As much as I don’t tend to like her personality, she knocks this out of the park. Anyone would be so lucky to look half that good. And call me crazy, but I don’t hate Brady’s hair. I wish it were one or two inches shorter, but it doesn’t look bad to me. It looks pretty hot, imo. This couple could sell me anything right now. That’s power, seeing as I’m a natural skeptic. This wins my vote for best dressed couple. Hands down.

  62. Andie B says:

    The dress is nice BUT…I have never seen anyone look so smug or pleased with themselves in all my life. OK she’s a Supermodel, she’s married to a (supposedly) hot Sports star, has a cute baby, and millions in the bank. I have to say I can’t stand this woman – SMUG SMUG SMUG, and self absorbed. I’m off to punch the crap out of my pillow now.

  63. Nikki says:

    She looks pretty, but the dress is still kind of boring and unoriginal. They both come across as shallow and vapid to me. And Gisele made those ridiculous self-righteous comments about breast-feeding a while ago that irked me. She’s an idiot. And Tom Brady’s hair is disgusting. Okay, I’m done now. :)

  64. Dominique says:

    I think she looks odd…her face looks different to me and odd and round in some shots…I rarely think she’s pretty, but she looks odd to me here.
