The Louis Vuitton looks at the Met Gala involved papal dickies & sadness

Celebrity arrivals at the 2018 Costume Institute Gala in New York City

Here are some photos of all of the women who were dressed by the house of Louis Vuitton. How can I say this without sounding too mean? These gowns are absolute garbage. Even the “okay” looks are still pretty f–king bad. Let’s start with Alicia Vikander in her PAPAL DICKIE. I realize that the dress is supposed to be textured in an interesting way, but it just looks, bizarrely, like camouflage. And the papal dickie sucks.

Emma Stone is the latest face of Louis Vuitton and they are already doing her dirty. This is such a nothingburger look.

Michelle Williams’ Louis Vuitton look was probably some kind of Joan of Arc/Catholic-knight reference. But everything she wears tends to blend together, so what could have looked special ends up looking like something she’s worn a million times before.

Sienna Miller wore one of the better LV looks but it’s still pretty boring.

    Sienna had some ironing done to her face I see

    • Tanguerita says:

      I had to look twice, still don’t recognize her.

    • SM says:

      Oh my God, I had to go back and find the pics of Sienna in this post. Why would anyone do that, especially someone so naturally attractive as her?
      AV is a mess, that make up is a just a horror show.

    • Betsy says:

      I thought the pic was mislabeled.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I like Sienna’s look but yeah she’s had work done on her face – def had lip injections and maybe something around the eyes/nose. It really doesn’t look like her – I always thought she had a generic blonde look but now yeah, she blends in with all other blonde starlets.

      I saw her in the flesh a few years ago when she was still with Tom Sturridge, again I almost didn’t recognise her – she looked rough, I think her party lifestyle and sun/smoking caught up with her. It was in a pub in Primrose Hill and they were sitting outside and she was smoking like a chimney.

    • KLO says:

      I always found her hella plain. Now she is unrecognizable. She still looks good though, dont get me wrong.
      I am irked because i always tried to find her as beautiful as everyone was making her out to be but I just could not get into it. She is just a regular, nice-looking woman to me.

      • lucy2 says:

        I have to say, I’ve always thought that too. She’s pretty, sure, but in a strangely common, almost forgettable way. Any film I’ve seen her in, I’ve been left with the impression it could have been anyone in that role, which means she never made an impact on me. I know others find her appealing though, but she just doesn’t catch my interest. Shrug.

      • tealily says:

        I’ve thought she’s been aging into a more interesting face, really. This new looks is so disappointing.

    • Khadija says:

      I guessed that was Annabelle Wallis. I did a double take when I read it was Sienna Miller!

    • whatWHAT? says:

      if she had not been identified, I wouldn’t have known that was her. whatever she had done was not good.

    • Morning Coffee says:

      If she had not been identified in the copy, I would have had no idea who she was.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I think they bleached her eyebrows super light, so that really changes the look of her face.

    • LL says:

      She looks good, but she looks so different.

  2. Miles says:

    These looks are so tragic and so bad that I actually had no idea Alicia Vikander and Emma Stone were at this event.

    • Hoping says:

      Yes…Vikander has quite often bad looks, so this came as no surprise (even her cat eye make up is horrible here, btw), but I miss so much ol’funny and chic Emma Stone’s red carpets.

    • ichsi says:

      LOL, so true. I don’t think Alicia’s dress is TOO bad, at least what you can see of it, but the combination of all these things is SO random! And the eye make-up makes her already perpetually sleepy eyes look even more sleepy. Emma is lovely collar upwards, but the less said about that mess of a dress, the better.

  3. Lily Randall says:

    Get your little tiny met dolls with bonus little tiny edgy Justin

  4. Nicole says:

    Could not recognize Sienna Miller at all. Yikes.
    Emma’s dress would’ve been cute on a regular red carpet but not the Met Gala. No girl.
    The rest of these dresses are either boring or give me a headache.
    Justin you’re not edgy stop trying to be edgy

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I think the colors Emma is in look so fantastic on her, but it really isn’t right for the event.

  5. KLO says:

    Alicia Vikanders make up is so weird it makes her head look like the Frankenstein monster. I am shocked because I find her naturally very pretty.
    Like…. whoever did her make-up…what the eff?

    • Pandy says:

      YES!!! Who did that to her, yikes!!! Emma’s dress is terrible. Those buttons!!! Michelle’s is cute but it is her usual style so it’s nothing special. Did not recognize Sienna either. I don’t know – I’m finding everyone looks “off” in the face this year somehow.

  6. Lala says:

    Every dress…is TURRIBLE!!! And I would not have said that was Sienna Miller…if MY LIFE HAD DEPENDED ON IT!!!!

  7. Mia4s says:

    Zzzzzzzzz. Wow, what a snooze fest. They’re letting down edgy (Hahahahaha!) Justin Theroux!

    Boy that “Tomb Raider” heat lasted all of three minutes for poor Alicia didn’t it? (Remember that movie?) Ouch.

  8. Betsy says:

    I actually like the papal dickie (good name for it!) but it does not work atop that dress. I like her makeup because she looks like one of those early Christian mosaics.

  9. Jegede says:

    Michelle Williams always looks the same to me.

    And I’m not understanding Emma Stone’s Sergeant Pepper look.

  10. Jenns says:

    I didn’t know the Met Gala was considered so “EDGY”.

    Justin Theroux’s thirst continues to be an embarrassment.

  11. OSTONE says:

    What the heck, LV? Utter disaster for a major label. And Sienna Miller looks like a generic LA woman now. Unrecognizable.

  12. Veronica S. says:

    I’ll give Alicia credit that she at least TRIED for the theme. I have no idea what was going on with Emma’s team.

    I actually like Michelle Williams’s dress a lot and find it relevant to the theme, though I agree that she’s worn that cut before.

  13. lightpurple says:

    Jennifer Connolly’s was the worst of the bunch.

    • justcrimmles says:

      That’s who that is, I thought it was Demi Moore.

    • lucy2 says:

      Wow I didn’t notice her either. It takes a lot to make her look bad, but LV succeeded here.
      Michelle’s is the only dress I kind of like, and I don’t like it all that much.

    • Esmom says:

      That’s what I came here to say, I wondered why she wasn’t singled out for that atrocity. She’s another one who bugs me with her try hard fashionista schtick.

  14. Jess says:

    Justin “the Edge” was also there among “basic” fashionistas.

  15. minx says:

    Why would Emma Stone wear that plunging neckline, so unflattering.

  16. Winniecoopersmom says:

    I can’t believe that is supposed to be Sienna Miller. Thought that was Natasha Beddingfield. She completely altered her face and looks like a completely different person. Such a shame. So unnecessary.

  17. Ada says:

    I liked Alicia’s look (I’m imagining it as a costume for a sly 60s romp about a spy socialite played by Audrey Hepburn who has to infiltrate the Vatican by day and Rome’s underworld by night) and I appreciate MW’s style in general, though I agree it can get samey.

    But Sienna? Wtf.

  18. justcrimmles says:

    Diane von Furstenberg and her literal interpretation, she’s come as a cloud 😂

  19. Tiffany says:

    I just cannot accept that photographers could not take a better shot of Alicia before turning them over to Getty’s. What the what.

  20. ChillyWilly says:

    Lmao @ “Edgy Justin Theroux”! Such a voucher nozzle. These dresses are hideous. They all look a msss.

  21. Sage says:

    Sienna wore the best LV look.
    Emma looks bored.

  22. emma peel says:

    Sienna looks like January Jones.

  23. L84Tea says:

    That’s Sienna Miller??

  24. Gaby says:

    LOL! So bad all of them, just horrid.

  25. tealily says:

    I saw this post after the Zendaya post, and omg Michelle Williams was SO outdone by her. This look is positively prudish. They could have done something so much more interesting with the Joan of Arc idea, and still stayed far away from anything as extreme as Zendaya’s look.

  26. Grinning mama bear says:

    Alicia Vikander and all sorts of fairy tales

    The eyes are Black Swan and the Short Cape is snow white and the dress is Allerleirauh (all-kinds-of-fur) and the gloves are Cruella De Ville or some kind of sado-m witch?

    Emma Stone – love her but not the dress
    It is a pity that Vuitton didn’t go full throttle and made that dress a proper flapper party dress or some Gatsby-esque thing with lots of strings hanging down. Unfortunately now this looks like grandma tried to sew an evening dress for her beloved granddaugther from her late husbands army parade uniform. Or was it the brother’s marching band uniform?

    Michelle Williams – a head of her own
    the dress is just best for Williams and thankfully she refused the over-long black gloves which seem to come back nowadays (Vikander, Keough). That leathery material of those short sleeves makes the dress into something more than just some silvery slip-in-tube.

    Riley Keough – ruined by the gloves
    Interesting dress but perhaps not the right colour and too old for Keough? Sadly the look is dragged down by those heavy dark gloves. Or did Keough’s makeup artist made her sink her arms into an oil company’s best Brent Spar Crude Oil? It is a pity nobody noticed Keough’s elfin beauty.

    Sienna Miller – get acquainted with her new face
    Ms Miller debuts her new or heavily botoxed face on the red carpet. Apparently she tried to botox off all her prior sins and dressed herself in angelic white and silver. Her wings didn’t fit into her chauffeured car so she left them at home over her bed. I am not convinced us mere mortals can be so easily deceived.

    • Hazel says:

      Loved your recap, Grinning! My only comment is on Riley Keough: I thought she looked like Penelope Ann Miller, from 20 or so years ago, from that movie she did with Pacino.

  27. giu says:

    I like Alicia Vikander and Michelle Williams with the subtle nods to the theme. Vikander’s makeup also looks better in other pics. I don’t understand the Stone’s look.

  28. No Doubtful says:

    I love the “camo” dress!

  29. LL says:

    I don’t like Alicia’s dress.

  30. Danielle says:

    I actually thought Emma’s dress was the best of the group by far. If you look at it side eyed it’s a little on theme? The best lv, and certainly mot the worst of the night.

  31. Nan says:

    I like Vikander’s dress a lot. Others are leaving me cold. Oh, Sienna 🙁

  32. Pandakeeper says:

    Michelle looks nice. At least her dress fits her well. The others don’t do any of these women well at all!
