Sofia Vergara in a grey Marchesa sack at the Met Gala: one of the worst looks?

Do you know how difficult it is to make Sofia Vergara look like hell? You really have to be trying and exerting yourself, because Sofia is a naturally beautiful woman who looks great in a variety of styles. But not this. Sofia wore Marchesa to the Met Gala last night, and from what I can see, many are already declaring her one of the worst-dressed women of the night. For the love of God, why would you put this gorgeous bombshell in a pale grey sack?!?!?!?!!?

Of course, it’s not a sack dress. It just LOOKS like a sack dress because of the “oversized” nature of the bust and the peplum. Should I even call this a peplum? Usually I just refer to this horrible design trend as a “dust ruffle” but even I can’t joke about this monstrosity. She looks like she’s wearing a curtain!!! Why would you do this to such a beautiful woman?

I can’t decide if Sofia knows that she’s not working this dress, and that this dress would have looked horrible on anyone. That’s the problem with the Met Gala – all of these girls want to be “dressed” by their personal friend, the designer —. When you bring personal friendships into the mix, things get complicated. I wonder if Georgina Chapman had to talk Sofia into this dress, and Sofia got second thoughts on her way to the gala.

Oh, and I think Sofia’s hair sucks too. She has great hair, and you can do so much with it! Why would you part it down the middle and tuck it behind her ears? Is that a “high fashion” style now?

    love her, always. and I kinda like the dress.

  2. Agnes says:

    this woman is so beautiful – what in the world is going on with this dress, though?! it’s quite awful.

    • smith says:

      Yea, she does not seem thrilled.

      She’s usually very animated and gregarious, here it’s more shell-shocked.

      I hate that creeping feeling when you leave home sort of questioning your dress, hair or makeup – the closer you get to the event the more intense it becomes. Then you arrive realizing you’ve made a big mistake and there’s just no going back. You have to push on.

      Pic #3 is the poster child face for this feeling.

        Hi Smith, it’s me replying to me.

        Just logged onto Daily Mail and there is so much FUG – Alexa Chung, MIA and Chloe S. all dressed for some other event, in some other city because there’s no excuse.

        Add to that Kate Bos (please eat something!), Eva Mendes (why the long face?) and wholy hell Kristen Stewart (seriously did you sleep with your stylist’s boyfriend? She clearly hates you). They are all downright embarrassing. Oy.

        In closing and in comparison – Sofia darling, my error … head up, smile bright, you look fabulous.

    she is beatiful. that being said, silver is not her color, she should stick with warm colors. her make-up is bad. too much eye shadow and the lipstick is just off. what did they do to her hair? OMG. kill ur stylist gurl. this is a fashion faux pas.

  4. mia girl says:

    It’s a testament to her beauty because even in this nightmare of a dress she is so stunning.

    But yes, one of the night’s worst dresses for sure. The only excuse is she is trying to win favor with Chapman’s troll of a husband.

  5. Marjalane says:

    I actually think the whole thing would have looked pretty good if she had done her hair in a soft, side parted updo. Also the lips are much too garrish. Maybe it’s time to ban this Marchesa crap at all formal affairs. Except figure skating events.

  6. T.C. says:

    I am in the minority because I like it. She looks stunning. She doesn’t always have to show the boobs. This proves she is attractive without the boobs on display.

  7. The Orginal Orginal says:

    I think she is a very sexy woman and usually everything looks great on her, but this one was a miss for me. I don’t like the top part, makes her girls look weird. Since it is Marchesa, did Harvey Weinstein make her ware it?

  8. Snowflake says:

    I like the dress, it makes her look thinner. She looks great

  9. Lee says:

    I like the dress too. It plays down her boob situation for sure though. I think the fabric is gorgeous.

  10. corny says:

    The dress is way too severe and her hair is too, kinda star wars looking, but she is truly a beauty.

  11. L says:

    Elizabeth Banks and Beyonce were the worst looks. Maybe Kiki Dunst as well.

    The dress I like-but the hair is meh. Although this new trend of material around the hips is just weird.

  12. Me says:

    Colour is awful on her but the dress itself is beautiful. She looks thinner which may be why her face doesnt look as beautiful as usual.

  13. Sherri says:

    I love her choice – beautiful dress and she looks wonderful in it . . .

  14. Katren says:

    I want to know who is wearing the hideous white dress to the left of Sofia in the first picture! That’s the real monstrosity.

    Definitely not her best look – hair and makeup just make everything worse!

  15. RuddyZooKeeper says:

    Oh, pitiful. Like when Maria made outfits from the drapes in The Sound of Music. *said in my Bless Her Heart voice*

  16. Dee says:

    She is using way too much botox and she has new eyebrows now ???? I agree the dress isn’t attractive on her.

  17. lucky says:

    I love the gold and white dress on the woman standing behind Sofia… wow!

  18. hairball says:

    I think she looks really good here too.

  19. Aria says:

    I really like the dress and the entire look. She looks demure and yet sexy and much more elegant the Dame Goop, whose entire attire was atrocious.

  20. lucy2 says:

    I don’t care for it, but expected worse based on the headline.

  21. Bamster says:

    The dress unusual, but I like it and that she dares to wear something different.

  22. Jordan says:

    It would have been a hit without the dust ruffle…no one looks good in these!! Her hair looks flat so she should have pulled it back or up. Too much make-up. She’s so gorgeous she really doesn’t need to pile on the make up.

  23. poppy says:

    she’s so pretty and for being so buxom she managed to keep it classy.
    wtf was with all the peplums and all the bird feathers last night?
    and where are the pictures of marc jacobs?!?!?! his lace dress, white panties and the pilgrim shoes… uh, whuck?!?

  24. NYC_girl says:

    I’d like to know who the 2 women are behind her in the first pic, on the left. That white fringe dress is hideous, but the greenish one next to it looks interesting.

  25. El Kiddo says:

    i dislike the lipstick colour on her. the colour makes her look older than she really is.

  26. Hanna says:

    I think she looked better than most women there. This dress is more conservative but you can see her sexy curves. She looks GREAT!

  27. another nina says:

    I think she has been wearing this silhuette (sp?) many times this year (I only liked it on Michelle Williams @ Oscars.) The dress is alright, although the color does nothing for her. I hate her hair and lipstick though

  28. patata says:

    i think the picture of sofia below does it more justice:

    i also looooooove keren craig’s grecian goddess dress.

  29. TheOriginalKitten says:

    She looks like she hates the dress too because she def. doesn’t have her usual “spark”. I hate the dress. Will Marchesa just DIE already?

  30. B says:

    I love this look. And I usually hate Marchesa.

  31. HadlyB says:

    Like the dress, don’t love it. Her lipstick is awful, hair boring but she still looks lovely.

    The white grecian style dress behind is one I’d love to have though! Love that one!

  32. Princess Lizabeth says:

    Maybe not her best outfit, but she is still GORGEOUS!

  33. lil ole me says:

    I like the dress actually. Specifically the color. I am Latina with olive skin and I love the grey/silver. I just don’t care for her choice of lipcolor. Is she shilling a drugstore cosmetic that she is under contract to wear?

  34. Jenna says:

    No, she’s not one of the worst looks of the night. Like Gisele, she’s just worn this style a ton of times.

    Have you seen Elizabeth Banks, Kristen Stewart, Eva Mendes and Jessica Biel!?! THEY were the worst of the night.

  35. CC says:

    I think the dress is great.
    Her always looking like she is sucking in so hard and holding her breath, not so much.

  36. Erin says:

    I guess I don’t get the appeal of this woman – everyone seems to always be falling all over themselves to say how beautiful she is. I don’t think her face is that special, she has a nice figure and big boobs. As far as the dress, I actually think it’s quite flattering to her figure, though I hate the color and Marchesa in general. Tacky swill.

  37. Mourning the Death of Music says:

    Get rid of the dust ruffle, soften the edges around her bodice and it would be a stunning dress.

    I don’t care for that shade of lipstick on her, especially with that dress.

    She should have ran a flat iron over her hair a few more times to give it more of a smooth, polished look.

  38. Turd Fergussen says:

    Paltrow looked horribly dated. Her dress was awful. Sofia’s isn’t all that bad. She has the body to make it look good. The berry lipstick helps, too.

  39. Kim says:

    1 of the worst?? I Love this dress and she looks amazing!

  40. the original bellaluna says:

    The hair and that lipstick colour are mutually awful. The dress…I don’t like it.

  41. bea says:

    Other than the fact that she almost always wears a strapless formal dress, this dress really isn’t “the worst” of the night (my vote is GP aka Fish Stix or poor Florence).

    The color isn’t really for her and the fabric looks cheap.

    She REALLY needs to branch out a little. She’s a beautiful woman with a curvy figure. She should contact Salma H’s stylist for a little variety.

  42. letty says:

    I am not a big fan of marchesa but Sofia saved this dress. I saw other photos of her and she looks amazing!

  43. hyena says:

    I think she looks grrrrreat!

  44. anneesezz says:

    What are you all talking about? She looks gorgeous, as usual.

  45. normades says:

    I love this dress even if it’s Marchesho. Sophia looks amazing as always.
