Sorry for the inarticulate title, but there’s no other way to describe the 2008 Met Costume Ball. I pretty much knew from the moment the theme was announced that it was going to be a proverbial shit show. Superheroes and fashion? Really??? I know the gala has been pandering to Hollywood for years now, but why don’t you just cut the crap and make next year’s theme Hooray for Hollywood? That way you won’t confuse these celebrities and get something that is neither star-studded nor fashionable.

I had vain hopes that the guests would have a sense of humor about the obtuse theme and maybe run with it. But I forgot….celebrities don’t have a sense of humor nor are they creative-that’s why they have stylists! Well it seems like everyone’s stylists took the night off, that or somebody’s out of job tomorrow!

I truly didn’t think things could get any more hideous than 2004’s ‘Dangerous Liaisons’ themed gala. Which resulted in people wearing things like this….

But boy was I wrong….

 

Enter at your own risk. More after the jump…

I kid you not, this is what MK wore. Last time I checked there was no homeless superhero from the disco era. But then again I’m not that into comics!

There were those who actually tried to play with the super-hero theme, none of which worked, but they get my approval for at least trying.

Katie Holmes’ super-blue-pumps allow her to be taller than her husband-oh wait that’s not a super-power.

Finally something decent before my eyes start to bleed. I only wish there was a comic with Stella McCartney and Kate Moss as a fashionable crime-fighting duo!

And finally….

The lady responsible for this madness, Anna Wintour. In a one off Chanel designed espically for her by Kaiser Karl. Is it just me or does that look like something out of the The Fifth Element. Miss. Wintour’s mistake, yet again, has been misunderstanding her audience. The people who show up to this event live in a world of glamour. Superheros are characters created by nerds, for nerds. Glamour and nerds don’t mix and trying to mix them results in the 2008 Costume Institute Gala. At this rate by 2010, the theme will be Primates and Fashion!
