Fashion failures at this year's Met Ball.-
The Met Costume Institute Gala is one of the biggest style events of the year, but unlike the Oscars, celebrities, designers, and the fashion elite all scramble to outdo either other in extremely over-the-top outfits. We love when people take fashion risks, but this year there were so many failures. Last night paid tribute to the late Alexander McQueen in honor of his current Savage Beauty fashion exhibit at the Met (well-timed considering Kate Middleton's McQueen wedding dress), but the few guests who actually turned up in his designs made our eyeballs hurt.
