Gisele Bundchen & Tom Brady at the Met Gala: cheap, tacky or just boring?

Costume Institute Gala  in NYC

I’m struggling to remember, but I don’t think Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady have EVER adhered to any kind of Met Gala theme. At some point, you would think that they would accidentally fall backwards into being on-theme, but no, they never do. Gisele increasingly looks like a telenovela soap opera star and Tom looks like her male-escort “walker.” Can you even f–king believe that Gisele’s dress here is Versace? This was the worst Versace of the 2018 Met Gala – it looks cheap, and like something Vanna White would wear (no disrespect to Vanna). The dress makes her boobs look SO SAD. And Tom Brady is just serving up Sprockets Realness. Messy. So messy. (One nice thing: I love Gisele’s earrings.)

Cindy Crawford also brought her boring husband and she also wore Versace. I guess you could argue that Cindy’s interpretation on the theme was that she was “the devil” or “sin” or something. But mostly, I think she just wanted to wear a pretty Versace gown. She looks amazing, but she could have been going anywhere.

The dudes from Migos also wore Versace and, quite honestly, they killed it. I love their looks.

    Snooze fest!

  2. Justwastingtime says:

    Why pick just one? All three work

  3. Jailnurse says:

    I will never understand Cindy’s appeal. Even in her heyday she was boring. There are better looking and more interesting looking women everywhere. Modeling is for people who have nothing to offer except their looks. Talentless.

    • I'm confused says:

      She’s the first supermodel who was also good in business. She had workout videos, hosted mtv house of style and iirc she’s also an actress at some point.

      • Taxi says:

        i saw Fair Game, Cindy’s 1995 film & was jarred by her bad, screechy voice. She wasn’t much as an actress either.
        Somewhere along the way, she’s gotten voice training & sounds better now on her TV infomercials.

      • LAK says:

        She was universally panned for that one movie she made. Not just critically, but by the public too.

        She herself acknowledges how bad that movie was and how bad an actress she was in it.

        I don’t think she’s stepped onto another movie / TV set unless she’s playing herself in a cameo.

    • anna says:

      same. i don’t care for cindy’s face, for her beautymark, for pushing her offspring on us and i don’t care for what she’s wearing here. it’s almost offensively boring and off-theme. obviously a matter of taste but i find that whole family rather unattractive. i’m glad kaia had to stay home like the kid that she is, because the met now has an age limit.

    • Snowflake says:

      I’ve always thought she is gorgeous

      • Alex says:

        +20 She was a natural beauty, and she was Gia’s predecessor, Nicky Taylor was only 16 and she also was a natural beauty. She has maintained her looks as well, but even gorgeous wealthy on her own right like Cindy age. And the 90’s were not the interesting the looks era, as we have now which is much better

  4. Belle says:

    Agree, they stood out for the very reason that they looked cheap. Cindy looks incredible though.

  5. Birdix says:

    Agree that it’s an ugly dress, but why are her boobs sad? They look fine to me…

    • Anastasia says:

      They look like they’re going in different directions in that top pic!

  6. monette says:

    Cheap, boring and the same -his hand on her ass, her laughing look what a good time we are having- poses.
    We are so hot, so in love, the perfect couple, we bone all the time, bla bla bla
    They are giving me Brangelina vibes pre-divorce. Her with the leg pose, him with the ass hand.
    No bueno!

    • NameChange says:

      Gisele and Tom have jumped the shark.

    • tracking says:

      Yes, their golden couple days are done. They look both boring and extra at the same time.

    • homeslice says:

      Yes, to all of this. Of course his hand is on her ass! So tacky, LMAO.

    • Veronica T says:

      Really. You are in public, Tom. Show some class and get your hand off your wife’s ass. He has done this before. To me, it smacks of fake passion and ownership. No respect.

    • AuroraBorealis says:

      The hand-on-butt pose always makes it seem like the couple is thirsty or trying to prove something. They both look cheesy as heck.

  7. Jegede says:

    Karolina Kurkova & Karen Elson seem to be the only models that often play along with the theme.

    Gisele doesn’t even try and wears a different variation of the same dress, (only changing the length).

  8. minx says:

    Gisele’s dress looks cheap, tacky AND boring.

  9. It’sJustBlanche says:

    Giselle needs to eat something. She’s started by to look like a very thin man.

  10. Jekelly says:

    Gisele’s dress is made from all sustainable material, maybe that’s why it doesn’t look quite right… also I’m from MA and we are all Brady apologists.

    • Veronica S. says:

      Sustainable materials is not the issue here. The bodice looks wrong because it’s just not sewn well. Attaching the left side to the sleeve on the arm pulls the level of the bodice out of alignment, which is what makes it look wonky. That’s a design flaw, not a materials issue.

  11. Lucy2 says:

    Giselle’s dress does look cheap, and Tom looks unintentionally hilarious.
    I like Cindy’s dress but clearly she just wanted to wear it, not adhere to any kind of theme, sort of defeats the purpose of this event.

    • Eden75 says:

      If you have a close look a Cindy’s dress, it’s a snake skin pattern, which, according to Catholic cannon, would fit right on point.

  12. Tate says:

    I love how ridiculous Tom looks. 😂

    • TheRickestRick says:

      He looks like a magician! Like a low rent magician. Anyone see that IT Crowd where Jen is dating that guy that they all think looks like a magician and then they cut to the guy wearing a very similar outfit to Brady ?!! Could not stop laughing when I saw Brady in his “Micheal the Magnificent” outfit hahahahah!!

  13. Lizzie says:

    cindy should have thrown one of incredible jackets the guys from migos were wearing over that dress. done and done. instead she punted. i don’t understand going to this if you aren’t going to do the theme.

  14. Becks says:

    Giselle’s dress looks sad. It does nothing for her – and while I think she is super obnoxious as a person – I think she can look amazing. This….not amazing.

    I think Cindy looks great. It’s a little boring but meh. Cindy has earned being a little boring by now.

  15. Janice says:

    Maybe I’m being sensitive because I just had a birthday (35 now), and the older I get the more I’m sick of guys judging women much less women judging other women, but I don’t give AF about what Gisele is wearing. Her face and body look beautiful, and she seems happy and healthy.

  16. Layla says:

    I’m from Philly. We are still gloating and always finding new ways to mock these two bozos. This is gravy!

  17. Ana says:

    Gisele is starting to look like Brandi Glanville.

  18. JennyJenny says:

    Sprockets Realness!!!! LOL
    I truly did laugh out loud!

  19. Jess says:

    Gisele hits all 3 marks: tacky, cheap AND boring.

  20. Harrierjet says:

    I dread Gisele posts here because I’m a Gisele fan. However this isn’t one of her best looks – it’s some sort of eco-friendly natural silk and the colour is a little off. Her make up is bit harsh and heavy – i.e she does not always look like a tele nova star. Also she looked quite punk at the punk-themed MET a few years ago in Anthony Vacarello. I think there has been more talk about the themes in the last 10 years – which I think is great – but I also don’t care if someone is on theme or not. If you want to wear a pretty dress without some weird make up whatever, do it. If you prefer looking different good for you too.

  21. Lala says:

    It warms my heart and a bit of my soul…seeing Tom Brady and Giselle look…SO…VERY…BASIC!

    I will FOREVA be confused regarding what Cindy Crawford did to her face! She looks…TOTALLY DIFFERENT….

    Everytime I see Migos…they’re wearing shirts/jackets like the ones above…so it’s become a uniform for them…

  22. Shelley says:

    Giselle looks like Brandi Granville and Cindy to a certain extent. Same surgeon or fillers.

  23. Bridget says:

    Wow Gisele, that dress looks so cheap. I don’t even understand how Versace was okay with sending that out last night, it genuinely looks like something I could get at my local mall for under $100.

    Cindy went with the “Heavenly Body” part of the theme.

  24. mellie says:

    The bodice of Gisele’s dress is so wonky, it’s weird. Cindy looks great, but she’d look great in anything. Those three Migos guys are awesome!!

  25. Veronica S. says:

    Oh my God, guys, we’re so rich! And so PRETTY!!!! We can show up to the Met dressed like Macy’s clearance aisle rejects because we’re JUST!! THAT!! IMPORTANT!! OMG!!

    That’s what I get out of those two. I’m not even one of those people who has a problem with Gisele, but this is obnoxious. You’re the biggest model in the world. Either show up to play or don’t show up. Your power play is just boring, not remarkable or even interesting.

  26. Spring says:

    OMG, I love Migos’ jackets and how often they have fun with their clothing choices. Even when they choose something that’s not really doing it for me, they always look so sharp.

  27. Carmen says:

    Those guys were perfection! Love their whole look!

  28. jess1632 says:

    Cindy’s resurregence of fame through her kids is beginning to grate on me. She’s really like a b/d list kris Jenner (and that says a lot)! She’s boring her dress is boring

    Migos look cute

    • kittyhawk says:

      I so agree about stage mom Cindy, I find her so annoying now with her pimping out her kids. Migos look fab as usual too.

  29. HeyThere! says:

    The dudes from Migos know how to dress. I loved their clothing/fashion on SNL and any other appearance they have been on!

  30. KiddV says:

    Cindy, just stop with the face tweaks! You’re looking more and more like Caitlyn Jenner.

    I really don’t get the appeal of Giselle and Tom. They have as much chemistry as Will and Kate.

  31. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    I never realized Gisele’s mouth was so cavernous.

  32. Sarah says:

    Brady looks like the stalker on Crazy Ex GF

  33. Hazel says:

    I thought Gisele looked like Rita Hayworth. Ah well.

  34. Jordan says:

    The brady’s need to take their bunch and GO.

  35. Lucy says:

    Migos dudes win this round! Great design and fitting.

  36. what's inside says:

    In 10 years, nobody will give a rip about Giselle or Cindy, much less about what they are wearing.

  37. Grinning mama bear says:

    Gisele’s thinking is in her dress:
    Saints have a golden halo and so Gisele simply wrapped the halo around herself and made her husband match her dress.

    Cindy Crawford:
    Red blood of the martyr saints. ;-P

  38. Ray says:

    I thought Giselle was Caitlyn Jenner at first….

  39. A says:

    In what universe is Migos the winner in a three way fashion off between them, Cindy Crawford, and Gisele Bundchen?!

    Also, Gisele and Tom Brady are truly the WASPiest, most New Englandy Catholics in existence. They attend Mass every Sunday, and were both raised Catholic. I expect them to do better. Especially Tom Brady. He looked more on theme when he was sitting on the sidelines at the Superbowl, looking like he regretted his entire existence. Now THAT was very Catholic.

  40. Melanie says:

    Why is no one commenting on Cindy’s undergarment sitauation? Is her dress wrinkled or are her Spanx bunching up under there? It’s all I see when I look at these pics.

    • Hazel says:

      I noticed that, too! In every photo of Cindy from that evening, I notice her undies. I can’t help but think a different pair would have worked better under this dress. You’d think she’d be experienced enough to know this.

  41. sunshine gold says:

    Giselle and Tom look ridiculous. For two attractive people, they sure did everything possible look as tacky and dated as possible. No self awareness for either of them.

  42. Shannon says:

    It kind of irks me on this Met Gala when, with a theme so easy to work with, people ignored it. I know, that might just be a *me* thing, but it seems so … unfun and arrogant.

  43. No Doubtful says:

    For some reason….Brady makes my skin crawl.

  44. jferber says:

    Migos trio KILLED it. Offset, Cardi B.’s lover, is in Migos and they all showed the others how to dress for the gala. Tom Hands-on-her-Ass is so frigging BORING. Giselle with the Angelina side-leg, no, honey, Angie owns that move so don’t even try it. Major fail for the two of them. Why are they even there?

  45. sza says:

    They checked all those boxes- cheap,tacky, and boring. Do they win a doorstop or a Tom Brady Chia head?

  46. Carrie1 says:

    Guessing Cindy and hubby are there to accompany George and Amal, otherwise George would hate this maybe

  47. Vegramen says:

    Incredible bod but the face is getting to the scary stage. Addicted to surgery, this one.

  48. SJhere says:

    Tom Brady always looks like a reject from Zoolander to me.

  49. Catherine says:

    Gisele and Heidi always have the WORST red carpet taste. Maybe it’s because they were underwear models, not couture.

  50. Anare says:

    Lol at Gisele and her try-hard posing. Made her boobs look all askew. She should dial it back on the Botox and whatever else she has done to her face. She has the witchy looking angry eyes. Cindy Crawford looks gorgeous here. Sigh. Gisele, take note of an elegant super model. I’m an oldster, hence the Cindy Crawford crush. I don’t know who the Migos are but they look awesome. I’m a fool for bright primary colors all together like that. I would never wear it, mind you, but they look fantastic.

  51. Eden75 says:

    I commented above, Cindy is technically on point as the dress is a snake skin print. Is it the flashiest dress there? No, but we sure are talking about her, so I suppose it worked as planned. I don’t mind it even though, if I was going to something like this, I’d be more Rihanna, less Cindy.
