Who was the worst dressed at the MOCA Gala: Dita, Minnie, Kiki or Gwen?


Last night, there was a gala held at the Museum of Contemporary Art – the gala was for “An Artist’s Life Manifesto” directed by Marina Abramovic. In previous years, MOCA galas tend to get a good turnout, but this year wasn’t that great, so I’m just including some of the bigger names in this post. Here’s our headlining lady, Dita Von Teese in what I think might be Vivienne Westwood (update: it’s Gaultier, thanks!). I absolutely hate it! Dita has been having some bad public appearances recently, which pisses me off. I used to love everything in her closet. This dress just looks like an Etch n’ Sketch vomited on her.


I think this dress looks very pretty on Nicole – very flattering, beautiful color. But I don’t like what’s going on from the neck up. Too orange, too many bangs.


Minnie Driver. Er… I hate this dress. It looks like really fug wallpaper from the 1970s. The material is whack – it looks so stiff and shiny.


Gwen Stefani can pull off looks that other girls can’t. Is this one of them? Eh. Her hair is mess, and her posture is throwing everything off.


Is Kiki Dunst pregnant? That’s the question she wants us to be asking, because there’s no other reason to wear this sack dress.

    Dita is always unique so I give her a pass no matter what she wears.

    As for fail, Gwen and Dunst ring that bell with me.

  2. lisa says:

    Was a competition on who could wear the worst dress..

    I guess I like Gwen’s but hate the shoes. Don’t care about the pop of color. That works for earrings and necklaces. those blue shoes are horrible. Minni dress is not bad.. but it looks so dated.

    These events are becoming very boring. the really BIG stars don’t come out anymore. (Gwen is big, but the intent is still true)

  3. El Kiddo says:

    How come all their faces look weird? Is it the camera angle?

  4. LadyJane says:

    What did Kiki do to her face. For rills.

    Is she morphing into Rene Z?

  5. Hanna says:

    Everything is fug! Dita, i’m very disappointed :(

  6. BB says:

    Dita’s dress is JP Gaultier I think… not 100% sure though

  7. anthea says:

    I actually dig the origami inspired dress that Gwen wore!

  8. keri says:

    I’m kind of loving Gwen’s look.

  9. Kaboom says:

    Dita is looking a bit Addams family. Gwen seems to have fallen into Christo’s hands and just gotten wrapped in a black tarp.

  10. renee says:

    @ Kaboom – I like your art reference, regarding Gwen, how appropriate:)

  11. cherryberry says:

    I can’t stand Minnie’s dress. She is the fugliest off all. Kiki’s dress might be better on someone with bigger boobs. I don’t hate it I just feel like it’s off somehow. I would wear it. And Dita’s dress is just trying too hard and failing. Which is a shame because usually that lady is impeccable.

  12. spinner says:

    I truly love Kiki’s dress…beautiful fabric & color. I also like Nicole Richie’s look here. The rose color & retro feel of the dress is quite nice. All the rest can go into the dumpster & don’t look back.

  13. Pyewacket says:

    You know for all the sh*t people lay on Rumer Willis for a tater head, they sure as hell never say squat about Dita Von Tesse and her huge, oblong, tater head. I think the women look rather similar, and if Rumer stepped up her style, she would be Dita’s twin.

  14. LittleDeadGrrl says:

    I actuall like Gwens. It’s very structural in a weird artsy way and it fits the occasion. I don’t like the shoes. They are trying to compete with the dress and when your dress is so over the top you need shoes that don’t scream for attention. They should have atleast been black.

  15. Jackie says:

    i really like them all, except for minnie’s bore of a dress.

  16. Lenore says:

    I think even Dita may regret that outfit. Her usually Garboesque snow-white mask seems pretty sour. I think it’s actually the brown fur travelling rug stapled to her shoulder that makes the outfit irredeemable – get rid of that, and she could probably force it to work for her.

    Otherwise, I would buy Nicole’s dress in a second, it’s gorgeous. And Minnie looks like she’s having an “I don’t give a toss about the dress, I just want people to look at FABULOUS ME” moment, and good for her.

  17. lee says:

    I think that photo of Dita is probably from the LA Gay and Lesbian Center Anniversary Gala last night. The backdrop and carpet are different from the MOCA event photos. Just a heads up.

    But yeah, they all look pretty terrible. Kirsten in particular. That dress is atrocious! I actually kind of like Gwen’s get-up though. It’s odd, but in a fun way. Although I’m not as crazy about the pop of colour shoes. I feel like that takes it down a level from a more high fashion look.

    EDIT: ok, now that I’ve been looking into it, Dita seems to have gone straight from one event to the other because she’s photographed and labelled at both events in that same dress. Oh well!

  18. valleymiss says:

    Gwen’s hair looks like mine when I stick it in a ponytail on top of my head before I vacuum and do dishes. Oy. I love Minnie’s dress.

  19. KLO says:

    Gwen looks great. The others look weird. beautiful girls, bad styling.

  20. Mikamoo says:

    Dita and Nichole look amazing.

  21. lucy2 says:

    I don’t like any of these looks.

  22. REDSLIP says:

    Dita looks the best.

    I agree Nicole looks way too orange, and I’m not sure the dress sits on her stomach right.

    Minnie Driver would look a lot better if her boobs weren’t lopsided?

    I love Gwen’s shoes and hair, but the dress looks like she wrapped herself in king-sized sheets. I don’t get it.

    And yes, Kirsten looks pregnant. If the dress wasn’t so voluminous she would be the best dressed out of the group.

  23. Shelly says:

    Kirstin’s and Nicole’s dresses are hideous. I think Dita and Gwen look great.

  24. Cathy says:

    Etch n Sketch vomited on Dita BBWWAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH to funny

  25. Micah says:

    Dita, looks Awesome….I actually like the dress.

    Can’t stand the rest….

    Especially the………..Mauve Doily wearing Nicole.

  26. Kasey says:

    She needs to grow the bangs out with a quickness but I like the color on Nicole, still pretty. Dress and lop-sided boobs aside, Minnie looks pretty too. I think it says a lot when your hair/clothes look ‘meh’ but you’re still poppin’…….unlike dear Gwen.

    @ Lady Jane, İ was just thinking how much I love this ‘fuller’ look on Kiki. In the past she was so bony and I never got her appeal. Her face looks like she has just the right amount of meat on her body to me not at ALL like bony, perpetually-sucking-on-lemons face RZ.

    @ Pyewacket, I think you just successfully explained why I was never really feeling Dita. She does look like a more ‘fortunate’ Willis daughter. Rumer definitely has more chin and they look similar but still different enough for some people to appreciate Dita’s game. Kinda like Bey and Basement Baby.

  27. Minx2 says:

    Dita and Gwen look fabulous: different and stylish, perfect for the event. Love the pop of Gwen’s shoes-she has no other accessories and that’s working with the shoes. Kiki’s dress is not bad, very unique, probably doesn’t photograph very well. Minnie’s dress is fugly, stiff and just boring. The worst, to me, is Nicole: her hair and makeup are dated, dress is something out of a country song – pink, full of ruffles, ferns (?) and glitter. Awful.

  28. constance says:

    Dita was at the MOCA with a vagina on her table. HAHA



  29. Hautie says:

    Isn’t this MOCA event where the girls all tend to wear dresses that are suppose to be “works of art”. Meaning they are to be unique looking gowns/dresses. They are not meant for wearing… say to the Oscar’s?

  30. Adrien says:

    They’re at the MOCA, Gwen’s the most appropriately dressed.

  31. Adrien says:

    Dita von Teese is starting to look like Molly Shannon as Mary Katherine Gallagher. The 50′s look’s no longer working.

  32. Trashaddict says:

    Actually I love Minnie’s dress because the fit is perfect and makes her body look great and the color is flattering to her. Nicole’s dress is terrible, she looks like a mutant crawfish attached itself to her torso and she’s wearing it with platforms instead of stilletos. Yuck. By the color and fabric I can see how it might have been pretty, but it’s a fail.

  33. Fabianne says:

    I don’t think Minnie Driver goes to a lot of these functions so it’s always nice to see her. Her dress is okay.

    I’m not a 100 percent on board with Kiki’s Rodarte SS12 dress. Love the color and embroidered detail but I’m not a fan of the tiered bottom. Her hair and makeup are gorgeous though.

  34. Criss says:

    But this is LA art world,they should dress a little weird and relax about expressing themselves an worry about those stupid Fashion Police nasties. I love Dita’s dress, she’s great when she’s weird, I mean didn’t she date Marilyn Manson? They all kind of remind me of barbie dresses my mom used to sew for me. It’s great to see who showed up. Thanks Celebitchy.

  35. kas says:

    Whatever Gwen is doing to her face of late, she needs to STOP.

  36. F5 says:

    Can’t stand Dita and her middle aged fug face and “edgy” style.. Is her 15 min. over yet?
    Dunst-inexplicable 0__o

  37. iseepinkelefants says:

    Kiki always wears ugly dresses. They’re like retro reinventions from the 70′s but they’re always done in ugly fabrics and colors.

    Everyone else looks blah.

    And when did Nicole Richie become such a player in a-list circles? Surely her 15 minutes should been up along with Paris Hiltons.

  38. Vera says:

    If the dress on Dita didn’t have the nude on nude half and the little puts that pop up towards her collar bone were gone it’d look better. I like the overall design, just the details aren’t that great. If it was all black it’d look great (in my opinion).

    Gwen’s is so-so. Overall I have never really liked the way designers have been adding texture to dresses like that. It just looks like a lumpy mess. But I think it is alright here. Nothing great, but isn’t terrible. It works more in black that anything.

    Kirsten’s…hm. If it was a bit more fitted up top I’d like it more. I think because I’ve adored Kirsten for so long that even her most questionable choices I will find something I like. This one isn’t one of her worst, but it is a bit frumpy.

    The more I look at Nicoles the more I notice that it is more of the layers of fabric and how they photograph than actual lumps in the dress. I think in person it would have been much better.

    For me Driver’s is the worst. It really isn’t terrible, but it is a shape that isn’t great and the fabric is weird. None were as horrible as I was anticipating. But none were great either.

  39. Nina says:

    gwen’s dress is cool and architectural – i like it.

    don’t like other dresses but minnie looks great despite dress.

    nicole’s dress is too lacy and pink and looks like a big scalloped shell on top.

  40. lola lola says:

    Great collection of hideous dresses! Not a decent one in the bunch. ick!

  41. Heather says:

    Whaaat Nicole looks so pretty! What is it with you and bangs?

  42. palermo says:

    Dita looks horrendous. I am so sick of her dated lipstick, dated hairstyle, scary white face.

  43. Girl says:

    Was this like a festival dedicated to Tacky? Eww. Like a race to the bottom of the bargain bin.

  44. wunder says:

    All dresses are fug except Minnie Drivers which is just plain boring.

  45. taxi says:

    Dita looks like Morticia Addams. She’s not pretty to start with, & this outfit is a big miss. Gwen would look a lot better with different shoes & tidier hair.

  46. anne_000 says:

    I like Minnie’s dress because it reminds me of a 1960s glamour dress. She didn’t wear it well though with her orange skin, brown hair, and her hair down. I think if you’re going to wear a period dress, then you should match the rest of you to go along with the dress.

    I think Nicole’s dress looks like a Chinese New Year’s shrimp dish gone wrong. Her hairstyle does not flatter her face at all.

    Kiki’s dress looks like something Marcia Brady would wear. Her hair & makeup doesn’t match the dress.

    Dita’s dress looks like the designer tried for a 1920s dress, but failed.

    I’ve seen a version of Gwen’s dress before on someone. It’s like a recycled dress. I think it looks good in profile, but probably doesn’t look so good in a frontal profile.

  47. Reece says:

    I simply, absolutely, hate sheer bottom dresses! That puts Kirsten and Nicole down for the tie. Maybe a little more Nicole because I also am not liking the bird effect.
    I think Minnie looks stiff not the dress. Dress is just ok.
    Gwen’s hair is prob meant to be messy and high. I actually like this one but not a fan of the shoes with it.
    I just don’t get Dita’s Gaultier dress. Then again maybe I’m Jewish…

  48. JaneWonderfalls says:

    I hate all the dresses except for Dunst, she looks nice and the dress pattern and color is very nice and appealing to me. The rest even Dita I think were just bad choices.

  49. dahlia1947 says:

    Nicole’s dress looks soft and delicate and its a great color but that’s it. Gwen just wrapped herself in a curtain. Yay! Ugh.. Minnie’s is nice. It’s a classic silhouette. very nice, The rest are ghastly!

  50. harfang says:

    Actually there is nothing seriously wrong with Minnie’s look, to me. Great color, nice cut, uninteresting but inoffensive pattern/fabric. I agree about Nicole: from the neck down, terrific and very fresh… although, also a *lot* going on. The others are messed up to varying degrees. So I say best-dressed is a tie between Minnie and Nicole. Worst… I haaate to do that to Dita, but I think it’s the lousiest of the other three.

  51. Sophie says:

    Worst dressed = Kirsten Dunst.

    As a side note, my husband just looked over me shoulder and mistook the top picture of Dita for Sasha Grey.

  52. whatever you want it to be says:

    Love Dita’s dress, do not like Nicole Ritchie’s – others are nothing worth writing about.

  53. Cerulean says:

    Nicole’s dress is horrid. Her hair is horrid. Her orange skin is horrid.
    Minnie looks sooooo dated. Blah blah and blah.
    Kirsten is ok. Not great but ok.
    Dita is ok. Not my thing but ok.
    Gwen’s dress is fab and flattering. I like her look. Not the hair. I’m all for changing things up and keeping it fresh but I think a cleaner bun would have flattered the dress more. Because of the loose structure, a juxtaposition of sleek simple hair would have done it.

  54. NeNe says:

    WTF is up with Kirsten and Gwen’s dresses. They look HORRIBLE.

  55. Kim says:

    They all look bad. Dita is just not a looker and Nicoles hair looks ridiculous. Minnie looks ok and i would like her dress is another pattern.
