Why did Scarlett Johansson wear a Marchesa bridesmaid’s dress to the Met Gala?!

Here are some people who didn’t care one bit about the Met Gala theme. Shockingly, one of those people was Scarlett Johansson. Scarlett wore… Marchesa. Yes, that Marchesa. Marchesa designed by Georgina Chapman, who is divorcing Harvey Weinstein. Marchesa’s couture line is struggling, and Chapman is actually looking to change up the whole fashion house and possibly make it more mass-market and less couture. But in the meantime, Scarlett has her back? Although I don’t think wearing a fugly bridesmaid’s dress is really having Georgina’s back. Scarlett also brought her boyfriend Colin Jost. Ugh.

Kylie Jenner also didn’t care about the theme. She just wore this boring Alexander Wang gown in black and tiny little glasses. She came with Travis Scott.

The matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner clan attended the Met Gala as well. Kris Jenner wore Tommy Hilfiger and this looks so cheap.

    Kris Jenner…serving feather duster momager realness…. Oh Kylie? The 90′s called, they want those ridiculous granny glasses back…

  2. Nemo says:

    I…actually kind of like ScarJo’s dress.
    *hides in the corner*

  3. minx says:

    Kris Jenner thinks a nose can never be too small. Hers looks ridiculous.

  4. MostlyMegan says:

    I hate Scarlet’s hair and dress. It’s one thing to go brunette, it’s another thing entirely to have the same hairstyle as Laura Bush. The rest of them look desperate. I guess it’s useless to wish the Kardashian clan would just fade into obscurity.

  5. Jussie says:

    I think it’s time to just accept Scarlett has bad taste across all aspects of her life.

  6. mia girl says:

    Is Scarlett’s dress supposed to signify the blood of original sin or something? I’m trying to understand how it fits to theme.

  7. Maum says:

    I don’t mind the Marchesa too much but the hair is so…. blah.

    Kylie’s boyfriend appears to have raided Admiral Hux’s wardrobe.

      YESSS. I got MAJOR star wars vibes from him.

      I actually almost bought a jacket at winners the other day – that I really didn’t need – just because it reminded me of star wars. But not as on the nose as Travis’ look hahaha.

  8. Miles says:

    It’s one thing to not show up on theme and actually look amazing. It’s another thing to not show up on theme and then wear a basic tragic mess. The people who do the latter shouldn’t be invited back. This was one of my favorite Met Galas because so many folks showed up on theme/actually went all in with the craziness of the Gala and then you have folks like Scarjo and the Kardashians (all of them) sticking out for the wrong reasons. Should have just stayed at home to be honest.

  9. QueenB says:

    Ugh. Georgina profited directly from Harveys reign of terror. I dont care if she knew all the details. She specifically married him for his contacts to push her terrible fashion on starlets who didnt have the power to say no. She always knew they wouldnt just pick her clothes by her own merit, only because of Harvey.
    I canceled Scarlett Johansson after the whole Soda Stream controversy so this isnt surprising.

  10. Lexter says:

    Kylie’s fake over inflated bust looks sad and saggy. Don’t get enormous fake tatas and then have a baby, folks!

  11. Slowsnow says:

    Is Kylie trying to prove gravity?

    • Kitten says:

      LOL….you might wanna hide before large-breasted come out in droves to lecture you. ;)

      Kylie and Kendall didn’t even try. This is what we mean by “It Factor”. They are young and (arguably) beautiful and they have money and fame already. No excuses for this nonsense. Kendall is a f*cking MODEL FFS. They should be bringing the daring costumes and embracing the potentially dramatic theme but instead they show up in these Wet Seal-looking cut-out dress and jumpsuit. They didn’t make brave choices because they are too bland to pull it off.

  12. Ally says:

    That dress is probably leftovers from the collection(s) that got cancelled in the wake of Weinstein’s disgrace.

  13. Betsy says:

    Scarlett’s dress is fine, especially if the wine/blood theme is what she was going for.
    Kylie…. strapless dresses are challenging to wear, especially if you’re newly post partum.

  14. Nicole says:

    This post should be called Basic.

  15. Becks says:

    What I like about Scarlett’s dress is how well it works with the floor, lol. The train blends into the floor and the red matches the red tiles.

    But when the best thing you can say about a dress is how well it works with the floor…..haha.

  16. CadiC says:

    Biggest takeaway for me scrolling through all the Met Gala posts is how B/C list of an event this has become. I know Anna Wintour is controlling over all the invitees, makes me wonder if there are a a whole lot more No than Yes RSVPs the last couple of years and this is the best she could get. Also read yesterday where costs have gone up and money back to the Met is decreasing from this event.

  17. KLO says:

    I personally low key love Scarletts dress. I dont like all the detailing but it with the coloring it looks like a bloody sheet to me, like the sheet Jesus was buried in, maybe? Or maybe I am being too generous. Anyone with me?

  18. SM says:

    As I look through the looks that have nothing to do with the theme, I start to believe when asked about thinks like rumours of abuse or sexual missconduct, working with Woody, etc. They sometimes answer that they don’t know anything. There are just oblivious people who do not care. They may have heard you have to put on a dress for MET gala but don’t bother finding out anything alse. As for Scarlett, this dress is bad as it is, the fact that it’s Marchesa makes it even worse. I have do doubt that Georgina was comlicit, there is no way she hasn’t heard the rumours and decided not to question it as long as she her self could milk that cow for profit ans self advancement.

  19. Jayna says:

    I actually really like Scarlett’s gown, and I like the unique way she went at the theme with it. I have no problem with her wearing Marchesa. The problem is this gown isn’t all that flattering on Scarlett. I think it would look great on someone taller like Amal, with her dark hair and skin tone.

    And her hair was awful.

  20. Anastasia says:

    Did y’all see Scar-Jo from the side? Holy hell, that dress made her look like a huge sausage (her torso). And damn, that haircut and color ages her. Just…I don’t know what’s going on with her.

    I’m not even going to comment on the others. Too basic.

  21. Case says:

    It drives me crazy when celebs don’t bother with the theme.

  22. Veronica S. says:

    I will say the gradient from the white to the dark maroon is exquisitely done, and that does give it a sense of “ascension” to the look, but yes. It’s definitely a miss on the theme.

  23. Spring says:

    Agreed–I think SJ looks fine; not everyone’s going to go big or wear a color I’m drawn to. I also don’t get the “ugh” after Colin Jost’s name; it seems like a gratuitous swipe at gainfully employed and, AFAIK, decent guy. If “ugh” were after Kris Jenner’s name, I’d be all in, both for that dress & especially for being a mom-pimp.

  24. justcrimmles says:

    She looks like a ghost rising out of the floor. As for the rest, Kylie’s makes no sense (she looks like she raided Lisa Lopes’ wardrobe) Kris like she couldn’t pick one terrible theme and had to use them all.

  25. LaraK says:

    What’s the deal with Jost? Is he bad? Boring?
    I’ve never heard of the dude except the occasional SNL clip but nothing personal

  26. Anabe says:

    If you didn’t believe ScarJo is basic af, take a look at that dress. And that boyfriend. That’s all the proof you need.

  27. DiligentDiva says:

    The bigger problem is Scarjo considers herself a feminist and spoke at the woman’s march. She’s already on shaky ground with feminist and doesn’t need the association with Harvey Weinstein considering she won’t denounce Woody Allen. It’s just a stupid PR move to wear this dress.

  28. Rachel in August says:

    I actually like Travis Scott’s look. Kylie, on the other hand is what? Twenty years old? That bust on her makes her look like a tired, saggy-boobed middle-aged housewife from the head to the waist. The rest is all just fat injections. Her outfit is out of place and hideous. And I can’t believe I’m saying this but Kim’s dress was the only one amongst her family that remotely represented the theme. A little less tit showing and it would’ve been actually nice. And her waistline? I’d love to have seen the liposuction bill for that, lol.

  29. Philo says:

    Not only the dress- but why the mom hair ?

  30. emma peel says:

    These days, Colin Jost IS the most interesting aspect of Scarlett. Without him she’s just the margarine to his white bread.

  31. elle says:

    Bummed to find Kartrashian stuff in this post – I purposely avoid anything Kardashian/Jenner/West. This click is for Scarjo/Marchesa.

    The gown has an interesting effect – like she’s in the process of materializing or disappearing. Not sure whether or not I like it, though. There’s something immature about it.

  32. HeyThere! says:

    Kylie looks bad here. Scarlett’s dress is not my jam. That is all.

  33. Joh says:

    Isn’t that the dress that Lucy and Ethel both bought and refused to return?

  34. sza says:

    As inspiring as a pair of sweats. i mean..pretty dress but COME ON EILEEN!!!!!!!!

    I see Deepika in the back , lol
