Amber Heard & Anne Hathaway did red gowns with gold headpieces at the Met Gala

So many women interpreted the Met Gala theme “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” the same way – red and gold. Pretty, Renaissance-looking gowns in red and gold jewelry and headpieces. Amber Heard did that interpretation well – this gown is Carolina Herrera, the headpiece looks like it came from Catholic artwork and her makeup is on-point too.

Did Anne Hathaway believe in her look? There are some photos where she doesn’t seem to be a believer, and then in some photos, she looks like she’s feeling herself. I tend to believe that she was feeling herself at first in this red Valentino, but then she got on the carpet and she saw how many other women had interpreted the theme in the exact same way – a red gown with some kind of gold headpiece – and she felt like she didn’t stand out. Still, I love the “thorns” of her headpiece/hair adornments. The Valentino alone is kind of blah to me, but the look as a whole is great.

Nicki Minaj seemed to arrive pretty late to the carpet and no one was really impressed with her red Oscar de la Renta look. The heavy necklace makes her look so short and “squat,” and the dress just throws off her proportions. Minaj is one of my picks for worst dressed.

    I can’t believe it but, yes, Amber was one of the best for me last night.

  2. Digital Unicorn says:

    I really like Amber’s look. Red is her colour.

  3. A says:

    I think out of everyone who did the whole “halo head gear with a basic silhouette dress” Amber Heard was one of the best. Everything abt her look is in sync and it works and you can tell that the accessories weren’t just an after thought to keep with the theme, they were chosen to look good. That as well as her make up and hair makes her a stand out.

    Anne and Nicki look ok.

  4. Enny says:

    Whaaa….! I thought Nicki was actually kneeling in the first picture! Who thought this was a good idea? 🤯

  5. Clare says:

    I thought Amber was one of the worst combinations of try and boring (Cindy Crawford, for example, didn’t even try). Her look was just sooo…obvious. No Bueno.

    • Hazel says:

      Yeah, I wondered why Cindy didn’t even try. Did she think her presence was enough?
      But I thought Amber looked nice. There were so many who looked fabulous, though, that Amber wasn’t really a standout for me.
      As for Anne, did you notice she’s standing by two other women (one is Frances McD) with similar poofy dresses? Do they line up by designer or something?

  6. Rescue Cat says:

    It would be refreshing to see someone NOT wearing makeup at an event like this.

  7. Jussie says:

    I wasn’t into Heard’s look. A headpiece doesn’t make a boring Herrera bow dress interesting, not when people are wearing interesting gowns with really intricate, stunning headpieces. She wore a much cooler, totally on theme outfit to her birthday party a few weeks ago, she would have been much better off saving that for this.

    Also she really needs a new make-up artist. The warm eyeshadow with shiny skin makes her look sickly. Which kind of worked for this event, but she’s looked the same at most of the events she’s attended this year. At an event a few days ago the same make-up artist let her walk a carpet with half her face slick with oil and the rest overloaded with HD powder. Before that it was literal stripes of contour and lip colour that was peeling off her lips. She’s a stunning woman, it should be the easiest thing in the world to make her look flawless.

    Anyway, Anne’s version is a little more interesting, but still pretty blah, and Nicki could be at any event really.

  8. LittleWing says:

    Don’t like any of these. It seems lazy to wear a typical evening gown and just plop a “celestial” tiara on.

  9. Lexter says:

    Amber looks AMAZING! On theme yet glam. Good on her!

  10. Lucy2 says:

    I like embers luck, it’s a little more simple than some , but still gets the point across. Anne’s headpiece is interesting, but that dress is a big sacky mess of fabric.
    Nicki just looks uncomfortable.

  11. Lizzie says:

    i loved anne’s look and her crown of thorns. she always comes to play and even when its toned down – it is pretty flawless. i wish she would channel this steez at the oscar ceremonies.

    • tracking says:

      Yes, I enjoyed this look. Even though she’s gorgeous, thought Amber’s was surprisingly basic.

  12. Gorgeous says:

    I think amber was stunning

  13. Jess says:

    Amber looked amazing, that body!
    And to be honest I liked Nicki’s ensemble as well. Great colors, good headpiece

  14. KLO says:

    Anne Hathaway looks like a small child playing dress-up with the wooden shashlik sticks she found in the kitchen cupboard. It just looks silly. The dress is nice but boring. Amber Heard looks totally blah to me.
    Like a vampire queen form a b-movie. She usually looks way better on red carpets.
    I usually find her quite angelic-looking so this was a heckin huge miss from her stylist.

    Nicki Minaj kinda has something about her look but it falls flat for me. Maybe because I generally find her artistry boring and am biased.

  15. MellyMel says:

    Amber looks amazing!

  16. ValiantlyVarnished says:

    Amber was one of the best dresses of the night- hands down. Everything was on point down to the makeup. I loved everything about her look

  17. Carmen says:

    Nicki Minaj looked like her boobs were about to fall out of that dress.

  18. ChillyWilly says:

    Oohh! Amber Heard looks divine! Just perfect! AnnE looks like a friggin cactus. 🌵

  19. No Doubtful says:

    I love Nicki’s wrap, but the rest is uninspiring.

  20. serena says:

    Love Amber Heard’s look (especially make up and hair), not so much Anne Hathaway.. hairstyle is fine, but that dress makes her look like a sack potato.

  21. Gurl says:

    Amber looked amazing…And impressive enough her crown cost like $30 dollars and is done of zip ties! A small indie designer did it. That’s awesome

  22. Sara says:

    Anne looks like the statue of liberty. Amber is breathtaking. Thank God she got away from Johnny. Thank God.

  23. Jayna says:

    Amber does look like the Statue of Liberty. She does look beautiful, though.

  24. Busyann says:

    Does anyone else think Anne is dabbling with botox or fillers? Her face looks different.

  25. Pati says:

    She never gets into the theme of the party. Always lost and somebody’s makeup idea.
