Standing O or Hell No: The Met Gala 2014

lupita metIt must really smart to have fallen from the soaring heights of her fabulous Golden Globe look to the shallow depths of this Prada ensemble worn for Monday night's Met Gala.  I suspect the aftermath was intense bruising and a possible sprain.  Lupita, please break your contract with Prada.  Doctor's orders. It pains me to say this but it pains me even more to look at her in the above get-up:  Hell No, girl.
