What a shame.. Another disastrous choice. She needs to really step it up!

Not a good choice, the dress makes her look so much bigger than she really is.

When I was looking at pics from the met gala, I thought I saw MM in the background, but I was sure if it were her she wouldn't wear such a dress! Gosh I was wrong. Big disappointment that dress.

Personally, I love the fabric, even though the dress is way too big and poofy, and makes MM look like a bad version of an adult Mary Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie.

Right, tell me the price tag of the dress is wrong. $17,000 for that?!
I wouldn't spend $17 on it.

Right, she just needed the sunbonnet as the finishing touch!

It's a shame she wore this at the NY Met Gala of all places. She could have done better.

I saw this exact gown, the other day when I was watching the 1973 miniseries Edward the Seventh,on the actress who portrayed Queen Victoria! Looked more appropriate on her!

The dress makes her look so much bigger than she is. How unfortunate

The only redeeming factor about this gown is that it is only borrowed! Surely there were others that she could have chosen from Valentino's collection that would have been more attractive...

If she had done the corkscrew curls, she would have looked just like Nellie Olson.

Hideous! Next to her dress at the MET gala, this is one of the worst looks she's ever had!

I don't like it, looks like a nightgown to me, especially with those shoes. Her hair looks nice, though.

I never thought we would see that dress again She wore it at Carl Gustaf's 60th birthday celebration in 2006.
I love her hairdo!! She looks fabulous.

I think the dress is undervalued. It is not hideous, just controversial a bit. Still I am sure she looks wonderful.
