Madonna in camo Jeremy Scott at the Met Gala: sad, interesting or cheap?

The Met Gala 2017

Madonna keeps showing up at the Met Gala, even if she is no longer friends with the coolest girls in the room. Like, I don’t expect Madonna to arrive at the gala looking like Jennifer Lopez-Jackie Kennedy, but does she have to be so… youth-obsessed? This camouflage gown by Jeremy Scott is awful, and it belongs somewhere far, far away.

Claire Danes wore Monse. Shockingly, this was one of my favorite looks of the night. I was expecting more of this at the Met Gala – deconstructed menswear, crazy arrays of sleeves and ruffles. I was expecting to see more pants too. So… I don’t know, I think Claire nailed it. She looks great. And it’s always nice to see Hugh Dancy.

The point of La La Anthony’s look was that she was and is feeling herself after Carmelo Anthony probably cheated on her a lot. This Thai Nguyen Atelier gown is supposed to be “I’m mysterious and sexy and single!” But I’m not feeling it at all.

Mindy Kaling in Prabal Gurung. It’s a pretty color on Mindy but that’s about the only nice thing I have to say. This is a dress for an awards show, not the Met Gala. This would have looked completely fine at the Oscars. But I honestly expect more from her because I know she loves clothes and fashion. Why, Mindy, why??

    Well you can see that Madonna definitely had some work done.

    • Becky says:

      Seeing some old pics of her recently, she’s barely recognisable.

    • Char says:

      I love her, I always will, but she just don’t give a damn anymore, where’s the innovative Madonna she has always been?

    • doofus says:

      she looks freakish.

      • Imqrious2 says:

        This is one painful look, in so many ways…. her boobs look like they’re so tightly hiked and compressed that it’s got to hurt. Her face is so pulled, tweaked, and plastic m that if it wasn’t for her teeth, she’d be unrecognizable.

        Claire Danes looks like someone thought Halloween came early and she got TPed. Her makeup is too Johnny Dept-ish for me.

    • cindy says:

      Why can’t I look away? Madonna is morbidly fascinating and it makes me feel guilty. I am about 15ish? years younger than her, and she is like a manual in how not to age. It has to suck to be her.

      • Bee says:

        My thoughts exactly. When I get there (and it’s approaching fast), I wanna do it the opposite of Madonna.

    • Sunglasses Aready says:

      Madonna, what in the fashion hell…..

      • NtSoSclBtrfly says:

        Looks like something Edina Monsoon would wear.

        “It’s a LaCroix, darling. LaCroix.”

    • M4lificent says:

      Her excessively sculpted ass is not hanging out. I consider this a win!

    • InclusiveSnark says:

      I guess im alone in feeling Madge looks terrific. Regarding facial surgery- actors in hollywood are damned if they do or don’t. There is no aging its rare- plus i think her face looks “settled”. I love her look overall said one person on CB.

      • Jag says:

        I think she looks great, too! I don’t like the extra chains on the dress, but it’s fun and she looks fantastic. I’ll sit over by you, InclusiveSnark. 🙂

  2. nikzilla37 says:

    Poor Mindy. I love her but that look is not flattering.

    • ctgirl says:

      The dress is meh but what the hell has she done to her face?!

      • Yellowrocket says:

        YES!!! Her FACE! Mindy no what did you do?

      • Imqrious2 says:

        Her lips look plumped up. What a shame!

      • noodle says:

        gotta agree. the dress is pretty horrible too but her face is mind boggling. I guess nobody is safe in hollyweird. the pressure to somehow preserve your youth is just too great.

      • elimaeby says:

        Am I the only person who thinks Mindy has had some bleaching done? Between her days on “The Office” and now, I swear she looks shades and shades lighter. It bums me out.

      • erbs says:

        she looks like she’s sweating, as I would be. I’d be a sweaty mess.

      • Erica_V says:

        Yes her lips my god so bad.

      • Pandy says:

        She and Madonna are twinsies in the wtf happened to their face department. Although I’m hoping Mindy’s is more just bad makeup? Madonna looks so hard but then I think she always did.

      • MinSigh says:

        I noticed her make up is never done right. I want to call her and tell her I can help

    • Megan says:

      Did Mindy oversleep her styling appointments? I’m used to seeing her look fabulous on the red carpet. This look us way too blah for her.

  3. zan says:

    Hugh is so cute!!! Good to see him

  4. Nicole says:

    Ugh the only one that looks good here is Claire. Such a departure from last year which I love.
    Not sure what’s going on with Mindy’s makeup.
    Madonna will be madonna. Best part is there is a photo where sarah Paulson is freaking OUT behind madonna. Hysterical

    • Snazzy says:

      Yes, I saw the photo of Paulson freaking out! Amazing. Honestly, if I saw Madonna up close like that, no matter what monstrosity she was wearing (including this one which is just horrid), I’d probably react the same way. I mean she is Madonna for f-sakes!!

    • Stacy Dresden says:

      Claire’s makeup is scary!

    • Megan says:

      Sarah Paulson wins at life. I want to be her.

  5. Lucy says:

    Love Claire’s. And Mindy’s so obviously up to something. While Rih does all the distracting, Mindy quietly infiltrates in the restricted area of the museum…(Ocean’s 8 reference right there).

  6. Libra girl says:

    Madge needs to hang it up.

  7. Guest says:

    I think Madonna starts to look like a cat lady.

  8. Missy says:

    I like how la la has a ring on every finger except the ring finger

  9. smcollins says:

    Oh, Madge….No! No! No! No! Noooooo! Stop. Just stop. And speaking of stopping, STOP messing with your face! You don’t look as good as you think you do (or are trying to). Enough! Same goes for Mindy. I never understood why Mindy started tweaking herself, she was so pretty the way she was. Her is dress is nice, though, even if it’s not event “appropriate.” Not feeling Claire’s look. At least not at first glance. Maybe I need to look at it longer, but my gut response was “Nope!”

  10. Lucy2 says:

    Omg Madonna. Her face. Her boobs hiked up to her chin. The whole thing is so embarrassing.
    Claire’s is interesting, but how does she sit down in that?
    I think Mindy looks nice, but it’s not the right choice for this event.

    • Megan says:

      I was wondering that, too. There were a lot of looks that were for standing events only on the red carpet.

  11. detritus says:

    How do you think Madge interacts (does she interact?) with Paris?
    I would pay to see that meetup.

    • Lisa says:

      I’d like to think that since Madonna knew Paris’ dad, she would be somewhat maternal toward her. However, knowing Madonna’s ego, she might feel threatened by Miss Jackson.

    • detritus says:

      I think it would be especially hard to see you old face, when you are wearing your new purchased face and it isn’t as nice.

  12. Mikasa says:

    Claire’s makeup is horrible.

  13. Eric says:



  14. Jenns says:

    I had hope that Madonna would be able to reinvent herself as she aged. But she is looking desperate and pathetic these days.

  15. QQ says:

    Is a good thing Madge has a Canteen on hand.. if only to ameliorate her thirst a little…

    I Honest to goodness do not in any way hate what Claire danes did here, she looks less uptight than usual, is crisp, weird, on theme.. Cook, Girl!

    Said before but will repeat, Lala Is on the 6 Inch part of her Lemonade Journey.

    I have nothing nice in my purse for Mindy tbh

    • Tiffany says:

      If it was not pointed out that was LaLa, I never would have believed it was. There is something…different…off.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      I wondered if anyone else noticed Madonna’s canteen. That’s where she keeps the blood of virgins, to stay young a la Countess Bathory.

  16. PennyLane says:

    Has anyone else noticed that the gap between Madonna’s front teeth seems to get wider and narrower, depending on the occasion? How does she do that??

  17. chaine says:

    Madonna stopped off at the Met Gala on her way to join Ted Nugent and Sarah Palin for a visit to the White House.

    Posts like this make me realize I do NOT understand fashion, because I think Claire Danes looks ridiculous and awful.

    Mindy, please stop whatever it is you are doing to your beautiful face.

    • Erica_V says:

      Claire might look ridiculous going to a regular red carpet but if you google the designer the theme of the Met was based on you’d understand a little better why this is such a perfect look. It’s not meant to look nice or wearable or honestly even good – that’s what Commes de garcons is really all about – weird shapes.

  18. BorkBorkBork says:

    Madge looks like an escapee from Mama June and Sugar Bear’s wedding.

  19. eggyweggs says:

    Jeremy Scott is the worst.

  20. Lizzie says:

    At this point If Madonna wore something matronly it would be subversive. She should try it and also go back to working with D&G and Gaultier. Like go back into her own closet or concert archives and have it reworked for some truly artistic fashion.

  21. Pumpkin Pie says:

    SAD !

  22. HK9 says:

    Madge looks tired. She tries too hard to be young instead of just being herself.

  23. Jayna says:

    She’s wearing grillz. Oh, how edgy she is. Ugh

  24. Chetta B. says:

    Attention-seeking and ugly as sin.

  25. ash says:

    Mindy’s lips are about to FLY off her face…

    I wonder if Mindy is doing this because she feel pressure being in hollywood where there is a euro-centric aesthetic pushing to get your lips done because they want a more exotic look…. omg head-ache inducing already

    • Elisa the I. says:

      “…there is a euro-centric aesthetic pushing to get your lips done…”
      What do you mean?

      In most European countries, women naturally have average-sized lips and while you sometimes see women with inflated rubber boat lips thanks to fillers, they are the exception to the rule.

  26. shelley* says:

    Yikes Madonna is turning into Faye Dunaway..!!
    She needs to step away from the surgeon.

  27. Olenna says:

    Madonna’s dress is so bad it must be breaking some regulation. Woodland camo is not a good look on anyone, young or old, civilian or military.

  28. Ninetta says:

    It is better then what Madonna wore last year

    • Ankhel says:

      And doesn’t that just say it all.

      Also, Claire Danes look terrible, end of.

  29. Tania says:

    Claire is the most on point with the theme of the night and her make up is a part of that avant garde look. There’s something slightly off about her shirt but it’s ok. Funny story, I was showing my 5 year old the photos of these dresses last night and the one she liked the most was Madonna’s! Probably because it reminded her of something from Monster High lol.

  30. LinaLamont says:

    I think Claire Danes, Rihanna and Tracee Ellis Ross (that color is gorgeous on her) looked fantastic.
    Although I think the whole event and Wintour are a waste of my precious oxygen, those women stuck with the theme and showed some personality. Caroline Kennedy, too (even though she looked horrible, she had the right spirit).

    • Marion says:

      Claire Danes look reminds me a bit of SJP’s Hamilton inspired costume/look from last year. Personally, I like both and that they seem to do their homework to dress the theme of the gala.

  31. Ashley.Nate says:

    Claire Danes’ is not the prettiest woman, but jeez she looks uglier than she normally does. Her husband Hugh Dancy is a gorgeous man, but he looks weird- off here. Bad botox-y like makeup on both of them.

  32. Aysla says:

    Why is LaLa Anthony at the Met Gala? Like… how did she make the cut? Last minute “Oh! She’s getting a LOT of press for being cheated on by Carmelo, we better invite her !” or… I don’t know? For all the hoopla about Wintour’s selectiveness and last say on the guest list / who sits where… the results are extremely lacklustre and underwhelming.

    • AnnaKist says:

      Aysla: I don’t even know who La La Anthony,y is, but that’s not saying much, since this is the only celebrity gossip site I visit and am Australian. Seeing all the photos from this event makes me wonder how most of them got an invite, especially after reading yesterday’s article:

      I was under the impression that the Met Gala was special; a very highbrow event, and that one needed to be “somebody” to score an invite, so it just seems like typical D-lister Hollywood party to me.

  33. Kiki says:

    At least she has some clothes on. Not like last time when her butt’s exposed.

  34. deevia says:

    Mindy’s lips OMG…I don’t believe it’s eurocentric beauty either cuz they are not known for big lips. This is just sad all around. Is she trying to model hers after Priyanka?

  35. Zut alors says:

    I recently started watching Homeland. Claire Danes and her character annoyed me so much I had to stop after season 3. I know I probably sound terrible but I was quite gleeful of a certain character’s demise. They both irked me to no end.

    • JFresh says:

      Thank you! Omg she is unwatchable in that role. I don’t get how that show has any fans.

  36. Sage says:

    Madonna? Sad. This woman is struggling with aging. She cannot possibly think she looks good with the work she has done to her face and that ridiculous grill! Sad for sure.

    Mindy is doing more to her face than jut pumping her lips…

  37. Elisa the I. says:

    Hate Madonna’s dress (uncool on so many levels) but I actually like her hair and make-up. And she seems to have eased off on the plastic surgery.

  38. Erica_V says:

    Madonna & Jeremy Scott pretty much just copied last year’s dress in a different fabric. Really disappointing. I am glad she covered her butt cheeks this year.

    Clarie looks PERFECT! I love the shirt.

  39. FuefinaWG says:

    Madonna’s gown is so bad it’s delicious! The train and canteen are so much fun!

  40. Mary says:

    It’s all so silly anyway! Madonna can wear what she wants.
    Writer seems to have a problem with Madonna . And guess what? She doesn’t need your approval! Cuz BITCH , she’s MADONNA!

    • Bee says:

      She doesn’t need our approval, but she still WANTS it. Otherwise she would just go away and enjoy her bajillions. She’s got nothing left to prove, in fact, by going full cat-lady she’s undoing the legendary status she could have enjoyed. She should delete Instagram and become elusive.

  41. Karen says:

    Madonna is so scared of aging that it looks pathetic. Horrible dress. So much plastic in her face.

  42. jwoolman says:

    When I see camo clothing, I think of hunting and war. Which exactly is Madonna promoting?

  43. smee says:

    They have that same camo dress at a 7-11 by my house!

    Mindy looks Spanx’d to death in that dress.

  44. Otaku Fairy says:

    Don’t really like any of these looks here. Madonna’s is the worst.

  45. Anna says:

    Just gonna say it: I love this outfit and I think Madonna looks as good as she ever has. Honestly, she doesn’t switch it up. She’s been rocking the same look in variations since 1980, this one just happens to be a camo version. She likes what she likes and she goes with it. I don’t think it looks youth-obsessed, just a variation on her theme. I would rock this outfit so hard including the camo scarf!

  46. Bread and Circuses says:

    I have to admit, if I looked at these shots and didn’t know who Madonna was, then I would think she’s about 35 years old.

    Yes, she looks a bit plastic, but you know her intention is to look young and beautiful still, and she does.

  47. Anastasia says:

    RuPaul would tell Madonna to EDIT, EDIT, EDIT. Then edit some more. Then sashay away. She’s a cartoon character now. Nothing about her is real.

    Claire just has too much eyeliner on and her lips look a bit dry, but other than that, I like what she’s wearing (the theme was avant garde, after all) and think she’s quite pretty.

    Mindy is definitely plumping her lips. And as a huge fan of The Office, I can tell you her skin was much darker in the early days of that show. She’s probably staying out of the sun quite a lot. I don’t really think she’s bleaching her skin.
