Diane Kruger in Prabal Gurung at the Met Gala: stunning but needs more theme?

Diane Kruger arrived at the end of the night like she was Rihanna or Beyonce but the competition for awesome looks was so high that she’s not even in my top ten. Look at this gown it’s got an elaborately gathered and layered back, low puff sleeves, and silver applique along the front and down the train. The bell shape is so cool. Gurung probably considers this his showpiece, especially since his other gowns last night were lovely but not as striking as this. It’s an awesome dress but not next level. Her headpiece is by Philip Treacy and that brings in the Catholic element, but I want to see more theme in the gown.

Hailee Steinfeld was somewhat underwhelming, but still lovely, in crisp white Prabal Gurung column down with silver edging. This has angelic elements with the winged back (I got that line from Brad Goreski on E!) but again I’m not getting the theme. She capped it with a silver and pearl crown.

I saw Gabrielle Union on the carpet right before Rihanna arrived and I felt sorry for her because she was so overshadowed. She was in a highlighter yellow Prabal Gurung gown spaghetti strap gown with a high slit and long train. Gorgeous dress and this could be a nod to Vatican yellow, but like these other Gurung looks it needs something more. Also, check out the bridesmaid shoes. Hailee had on matchy shoes like that too.

    All of these are another list of additions to the “looks GREAT…if only it weren’t the Met Gala list.” With the exception of Hailey Steinfeld who I felt was more in theme than the others.

  2. BearcatLawyer says:

    Diane Kruger is wearing Virgin Mary blue. Hailee Steinfeld is clearly a bride, possibly a reference to nuns being brides of Christ. Not sure what Gabrielle Union’s connection to the theme is, but she looks stunning and I love Prabal Gurung.

      That’s what I was going to say. Mary Blue with the flowing train. Gabrielle’s seems to have no connection at all.

    Are we not going to discuss how Diane Kruger been hiding her belly lately!!!!!!!

    • Pandy says:

      Uh oh, really???? All I know is she looks like a big box in that dress, yuck!!! Hailee poses like JLo with the open mouth .. but I do LOVE her dress. She looks beautiful. Gabrielle is just in a gown. Nothing special.

      • PamelaJudy says:

        Hailee looks to have lost a bit of weight in recent times and girl is feeeeeeling herself 🙂

  4. Lexter says:

    Hailee looks GORGEOUS as does Gabrielle (always). Who hated Diane enough to make her tiny delicate frame so swaaaamped by this dress?? Her hips have an added 15 inches for no good reason!

  5. Lucy2 says:

    I don’t care for any of these, but can we talk about how Gabrielle looks like she’s 22!!

    • Naddie says:

      Please, can we? Even if it’s plastic surgery (I really don’t know if it is) her face is insane. Youth is attached to her skin, her muscles and her bones forever.

  6. tomatoejane says:

    Agree with bearcatlawyer, Diane is on theme with a resplendent Virgin Mary riff – as catholic as it gets, and Hailey is gorgeous a Bride of Christ. I don’t see how they could be more on theme.

  7. Nicole says:

    Hailee looks so pretty but too much contouring for her face I think.

  8. Carmen says:

    Love Gabrielle’s dress and she looks gorgeous in that color.

  9. ValiantlyVarnished says:

    Diane Kruger looked okay. I usually love how she dresses but over the last year or two I feel like she has lost her style mojo. Hailee looked cute – but it was too simple a look for the Met. And Gabrielle…personally her and everyone else who disregarded the theme should be forgotten lol. This is a dress you wear to a movie premiere- not the Met Gala.

  10. DesertReal says:

    The longer Diane is with Norman, the worse her fashion sense gets.

    Hailee looks kind of line a bride in a music video from the early 90’s. Like I can see her rocking this in November Rain.

  11. mar says:

    love all of these looks here, that head piece is so amazing

  12. Lucy says:

    Totally agree. Lovely gowns, all of them. Beautiful women. PG is extremely talented. They’re just not meant for the Met Gala.
