After slamming Anna Wintour’s annual event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to multiple media outlets, the Academy Award-winning actress confusingly took to her GOOP blog to praise it – and RadarOnline.com has the details.
“The Met Ball, at NYC’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, is always the year’s most elaborate display of incredible fashion and this year was no different,” she gushed on her blog Thursday. “The theme was ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’ and when the house of Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri asked me to join them, I was thrilled to see what they would create with my right fashion hand, Elizabeth Saltzman.
“We got all inspired in the goop office about punk making a comeback through subtle influence and thus, we asked one of my absolute favorite websites, the most excellently curated SSENSE, to show us how we could work it into our spring/summer wardrobes.”
Gwyneth, who told Aussie radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O that she “just went as kind of normal” in a pink Valentino gown because she felt she was “a bit old to dress up punk,” included on her blog a sketch of her elaborate gown, snapshots of her getting ready for the swanky soiree, her favorite looks of the night, as well as “Punk Inspiration” in the form other incredibly expensive designer duds with links to purchase.
“I’m never going again,” the Iron Man actress, who wore a pink, long-sleeved Valentino gown, told USA TODAY after the event.
“It was so un-fun. It was boiling. It was too crowded. I did not enjoy it at all.”
