Amy Schumer in Alexander Wang at the Met Gala: red hot or not?

Met Gala 2016 'Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology'

Comedienne and recent Vanity Fair cover model Amy Schumer may not be taking photos with fans anymore, but she posed on the red carpet at last night’s Met Gala in a tangerine-hued gown by Alexander Wang. The gown featured chain shoulder straps, cutouts, and an “up to there” thigh high split. She complemented the gown with a matching bag and strappy sandals. There’s something off about this gown for me. It makes her look like she has terrible posture and that top part is doing nothing for her boobs. I also wish she would have put her hair up. I do like her makeup though.

Fun fact: Amy has a unique way of dealing with chafing. She posted a quick video on her Instagram of her applying deodorant to the inside of her thighs with the caption, “No chafe #nothighgapnoproblem.” Maybe a little TMI there, Amy? I really can’t imagine she really has this issue, I think she’s just going for the laugh.

Neighbors 2 star Chloë Grace Moretz attended the event clad in a black gown from Coach. The gown featured a plunging neckline and a front sheer panel. I love her hair and makeup and the fact that she didn’t wear a lot of jewelry, opting only for earrings. The dress though…is is just me, or is the fabric giving anyone else a matronly kind of vibe? I know the sheer panel gives the gown a bit of an edge, but this whole look makes her look older, and not so much in a good way.

Hailey Baldwin also looks like she grabbed something from her mother’s closet. The 18-year-old model wore a black and silver sequined striped gown by Tommy Hilfiger. The dress featured a side split and cutout back panel. She accessorized with a clutch by Edie Parker and strappy Stuart Weitzman heels. I love the back of the dress, but the front is doing nothing for me. I also love her slick ponytail and, no shocker, her makeup was on point.

Juno Temple, who I loved on HBO’s Vinyl, gave me a 70s vibe with her gown by Erdem. I’m sensing a trend here, as this lacy number makes the 26-year-old actress look much older. The waistline on the dress is too low to be an empire and too high to be a true waistline. I don’t know why that bugs me so much. I do love her ringlets and makeup though. And Juno looks like she likes the dress, she brought the designer as her date, posting a photo with him with the caption, “Best prom date ever.” I think a real prom dress may have been a better choice.

    Amy’s dress is a no for me and the hair just makes it worse. Not cute and she always does this weird bed head thing.
    Chloe is alright the dress is a little old on her.

    • Magpie says:

      Agree, for me the dress would be ok if she pulled back the limp ass hair.

    • Kyle says:

      I think the hair ruined whatever small potential the dress had on her frame. Trying to look like you don’t care makes me not care so why bother showing up at all. And she kinda looks like Jlaw did at her first Oscars which barely even compares because of how well it fit Jenn. And this isn’t the Oscars it’s a costume gala ball thing.

  2. mellie says:

    I like Hailey’s dress, but that’s probably because I’m old enough to be her mother.

  3. AlmondJoy says:

    I kinda hate everything I see here 🤔 Lily Aldridge isn’t all that bad I guess.

    It’s just all so snoozeworthy.

  4. Melissa says:

    Nope. Just no. That dress does not suit her in any way.

    • Ravensdaughter says:

      + Nice chafe post. I know it’s part of her comedy persona, but she is nevertheless too vulgar for my taste.

  5. paolanqar says:

    Her posture make her look like a sack of potatoes.

  6. Rae says:

    Amy’s dress is a BIG no.

    It does her no favours, and wearing her hair down with that make up makes her look like she just rolled out of bed…but not in a good way.

  7. hnmmom says:

    Living in the moist heat of the south, if your thighs even *think* about touching, you get chafing. Once it starts, there’s no stopping it and you are uncomfortable the entire time. Deodorant on the inner thighs is a must for me in the summer on the rare occasion I wear a dress or skirt. If it’s really hot, I will sometimes pat baby powder over it to make double sure there’s no rubbing. Thanks, Amy, glad to see I am not the only one LOL.

    • vauvert says:

      Yes, but do you also post an artistic pose with your legs spread wide and a nice view down your décolletage to bring riilness to it all? And last i looked, NYC last night was not in the moist heat of the south… (sorry, I just can’t with the hypocrisy and thirst that is Amy.)

      • JudyK says:

        Will never understand why Amy has a fan base of any kind. Ugh to the dress and ditto to your comment.

      • SilkyMalice says:


      • magnolia says:

        New York may not have been hot, but some of us sweat when we are nervous and I sure as hell would have been nervous in front of 100 photographers and body critics. 😉

      • Esmom says:

        I can’t with Amy either. That shot of her applying the stuff to her legs made me throw up in my mouth a little. It looks like she’s inserting a tampon.

      • I Choose Me says:

        Right? I’m so freaking over Amy and her constant look at me, I’m so funny/cute/edgy antics.

    • Bridget says:

      Ditch the deodorant and get a thing of Body Glide (or bag balm, or 2Toms). Much better at keeping the chafe away.

      • Coconut says:

        For the record, my Body Glide comes in a deodorant type container.

      • hnmmom says:

        Thanks for the recommendation, not heard of Body Glide. Putting it on my shopping list….

      • vauvert says:

        I have a product from Lush – it’s like a super silky powder that glides and is amazing. Never go without in any chafe prone situation. BTW – I have zero issues with using product or talking about it – but I find that after having a hissy fit about a fan wanting to take a picture, sharing the skirt hiked up, chest down photo was just… ugh.

      • Bridget says:

        @Coconut: well yeah, but deodorant and Body Glide are 2 very different products.

  8. QQ says:

    The Only favor this dress does for Amy is save us the heart attack of anothe Hemline watch through covered eyes Even my bf remarked from his game last night “OMG look you dont have to worry if it’ll hike up, babe”

    Also Chloe here I Love

    Also IM Not allowing myself to make this Second Tier Baldwin Happen Nope, This is Like a Bargain bin Haddid which is ALREADY Like a Toy sold at the Dollar Store of Modeling So NO

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Yes, but keep scrolling. She shows us the good china as much as she can with her instructional video Deodorant For Dummies.

    • Bridget says:

      Little Baldwin makes me kind of sad. She clearly wants to be there so much, and she’s in that lame-o dress that looks like someone just grabbed it out of a closet and threw it at her.

    • Kitten says:

      I think Chloe looks great as well.

      …and I’m not afraid to be the outlier here and say that I appreciate Juno’s look, if ONLY the dress was better-fitting. She usually looks a good 10 years younger than her age so I actually like that she went for a more adult look here and I love her natural spiral curls.

      • Esmom says:

        I like it, too! I’m a sucker for gray. And an empire waist. And sleeves. It looks lovely.

    • Magnoliarose says:

      I’m not onboard with the budget Baldwin either. We have more than enough Nepogram models and she’s third string in every way. Joan Collins could have rocked this in 1984.

  9. AlmondJoy says:

    I came back to ask if it’s mean to dislike someone’s face… Because I really really dislike Amy’s 😕

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I’m with you. And really, do you need to show a video of how to put deodorant on your inner thighs? Not that I would ever do that in the first place, but couldn’t you just tell people that you put deodorant on your inner thighs and let them figure it out from there? How many ways could somebody f that up that they need an instructional video? Oh THOSE inner thighs! Help me find my inner thighs? I’m not sure I have inner thighs, let me check, oh she’s right, I do!

      • Kate says:

        If you’re Amy and a make a living “pushing the envelope” aka being as gross and shocking as possible, this video makes perfect sense.
        I do not like Amy’s dress or her hair. I really just don’t like her so it’s difficult to find nice things to say about the way she looks. That’s mean of me. I’ll work on it.

    • QQ says:

      No I feel You ever since she said that she had Cabbage Patch face (which is something i always thought) is like….I cannot. Focus on her face

    • AlmondJoy says:

      GNAT- agreed. I think she does stuff like this to be funny but her “humor” falls flat with me. She’s the TMI queen I guess.

      QQ she does have a case of Cabbage Patch face 😩 At least she knows it. Now I’m pressed to see a baby pic of hers! She also reminds me of Annoying Orange. My students used to watch that dumb show.

    • claire says:

      You’re not alone!

    • Erinn says:

      Yeah, I’m with you, mean or not. I’ve always disliked her. And seeing her face just annoys me, regardless of how awful that is.

      I STILL don’t know how she has become a ‘thing’. She’s not all that talented, not ridiculously pretty, and really not that funny. Girl is like Kaley Cuoco – she’s lucked out and gotten super big.

    • Magnoliarose says:

      Join the club. There is nothing I like about her.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      Not mean – just honest. I can’t stand this woman – her face, her schtick, her fashion, her vulgarity, I could on. I don’t get how simply being utterly gross passes for good comedy. She is shocking, sure, and controversial, sure, but that isn’t any kind of comic genius. And if I have to hear one more word from her about how sexy and desirabel she is, I’m going to vomit – and it will look better than she does in that dress.

      • I Choose Me says:

        Lemme come take a seat by you. All of you.

      • Jess says:

        “And if I have to hear one more word from her about how sexy and desirabel she is, I’m going to vomit”

        I know right, what a b-tch. How dare a woman feel say she feels confident and desirable in her own skin! How dare she!!!

        (& Way to act all high and mighty yet compare someone else to vomit. You really showed Amy Schumer there! I guess when you’re being disgusting and mean its okay though right)

      • Christin says:

        I feel better now. I rarely read posts about her, so I didn’t know if I would be the only one to comment on her irritating face. Something about her look (expression?) is off-putting to me.

    • AlmondJoy says:

      Thanks for being mean with me, you guys 😩 I’m just not a fan. Not in the least. Glad I’m not alone. I just don’t GET her.

    • NeNe says:

      I’m with you! I think she’s so trashy, and not in a good funny way. In my books, she’s trying to hard. She comes off as pathetic and tacky!

  10. Margo S. says:

    I thought that Juno chick was in her 40’s! Wow. Does that dress and hair ever make her look older!

  11. Neelyo says:

    Amy’s looks like a pageant dress and a cheap one at that. It’s also very unflattering.

  12. cindyp says:

    Amy needs to change it up; she always wears the same unflattering sillouette. Looks cheap

  13. Jess says:

    All of these dresses are bad.

  14. Winterberry says:

    It seems like the theme of the gala was a little too high-fashion for most of the guests. No one really looked amazing. The best looks were ones that weren’t too offensive. Just my impression.

    • K says:

      I agree I was watching as was like did Hollywood ruin the met? They all seemed so afraid to take a risk and get bad press. I think some of the designers toned down what they would normally do too because they’d get attention and they didn’t want to scare off the masses.

  15. SilkyMalice says:

    Amy’s dress makes her look flattened from the front, like she got run over by a steam roller. From the side it is not so bad, but the red shade is not good for her – she can’t pull it off. Something softer would have been better. And of course, a different dress and a different personality…

    • CoKatie says:

      I thought it was okay from the side and very nice from the back. The front was terrible, and i agree that her hair down just hung there. The dress deserved more.

      One thing I’m not clear on. What size is Amy again? Only kidding!!!! 🙂

  16. lucy2 says:

    With the exception of the black and silver dress, most of those are very unflattering.

    Whoever took that last photo needs to learn something about lighting.

  17. smee says:

    The whole thing looks like it’s melting – even the cut-outs point down.
    Plus, she looks super uncomfortable and not her usual confident self. The little matching purse is gawdawful. Love Amy but her stylist (if she has one) is a sadist.

  18. Samtha says:

    Amy’s hair is terrible. It’s 80s beauty pageant hair.

    Chloe looks adorable.

  19. kerry says:

    Amy definitely looks like a size 6 in that dress. Perhaps even a 4!?! ….LOL!!!!!!

    • kcarp says:

      I was thinking the same. No way that dress comes in an 8, you have to be teeny tiny to wear that.

  20. K says:

    Amy’s dress is eh and if this was the gloves I would be fine with it but it’s not on theme, she took no risk and it’s just eh.

  21. serena says:

    I like Chloë Grace Moretz a lot, she’s smart and dress appropriately but most of the time she just goes for the safe-cute but boring stuff to mixed results.. I guess she really doesn’t know what to do with her look yet.
    As for Hailey Baldwin.. is she a thing? I don’t get why she would be though, she’s so bland.

    And omg, I love Juno Temple! Yes the dress is not really flattering, but I don’t even care. I so want her to land a great movie or tv show!

  22. Darlene says:

    If your thighs touch, you might chafe, so that’s like MOST of us. 😉

    I see her in sheer black hose in the photos. Maybe she decided the chafing was too bad and she just went the hosiery route? I don’t care for the hose.

  23. Murphy says:

    Juno looks like Lady Rose a la the Blue Dragon jazz club.

  24. Deedee says:

    Amy looks hideous.

  25. Magnoliarose says:

    I can’t take Amy or this nothing look here.
    Chloe is average here and Juno looks very 70s California to me. Like a hippie dressed up after bathing in patchouli.

  26. HK9 says:

    Poor Amy. It’s a good colour on her but that’s where it ends. When you’re shaped like a square, you have to find something that gives you a waist. This dress doesn’t do it. Dress for the body type you have, not for the one you think you have.

  27. cakecakecake says:

    not liking any of these looks and Amy is annoying as usual.

    Chloe looks ok but older

  28. kri says:

    Amy’s Plus One is always her sense of decorum, She bores me. I like Chloe’s dress. And the construction on the Erdem is really interesting.

  29. Starkiller says:

    Amy Schumer, at the Met Gala, wearing an ill-fitting Frederick’s of Hollywood number. My God. This event has officially become as inane and lowbrow as its chairperson’s magazine.

  30. NeNe says:

    That is a big no for Amy’s dress. To me, she looks just plain awful!!

  31. ReineDidon says:

    Schumer should lay down the concealer. Her face is like a toast pan with white cream in the middle.

  32. tacos and tv says:

    Amy is a no. But lolz to her chaffing bit.

  33. Aulty says:

    Good grief, that is some serious Knight Rider-audition hair-do.
    The dress is ok from the bust down but the boob-wings don’t do anything for her. They make her bust look droopy (which it isn’t).

  34. amilu says:

    This is beside the point of this post, but did Juno Temple and Michael Angarano break up? I just clicked on her IG, and there is no Angarano to be seen. (And there are no recent articles/photos of them together on Google.) I really liked them together — two cuties who looked cute together.

  35. helena says:

    amy always seems vulgar and dirty to me. not sexy at all. and that has nothing to do with her size. she’s not that chubby. it has to be her personality.

    • amilu says:

      Vulgar and dirty is her whole shtick. Just don’t say that to her directly, or she’ll tell the world how offended she is that someone dared say she was vulgar and dirty.

  36. Tredd says:

    Size 6-8 chafing, huh?

    • cd3 says:

      Yes, why not? Depends on where you carry your weight. I’m a 6-8 and my thighs definitely meet in the middle.
