We're Shocked That Lupita Nyong'o & Solange Made Our 2014 Met Gala Worst-Dressed List

It's hard to believe that Lupita Nyong'o has landed on our worst-dressed list. However, the stunning actress totally missed the mark at Monday night's Met Gala and we're totally shocked.

Lupita joined by another one of our other favorite style stars, Solange, and a few more gals that definitely could have avoided these fashion fails. They should really take some notes from the folks that made on our best-dressed list.

Here's a look at our picks from the worst-dressed stars. Do you agree?

  • Lupita Nyong'o

    Why, Lupita? The actress' natural beauty was completely overshadowed/overwhelmed by all the gems, feathers and frills on this frock. And that lone afro puff extension has got to go!
  • LaLa and Carmelo Anthony

    Carmelo looks particularly dapper and stayed true to the night's theme. On the other hand, LaLa's purple gown misses the mark and we can't seem to stop staring at her girls.
  • Gabrielle Union

    Ummmmm....no.
  • Solange Knowles

    It hurts our hearts to include Solange on this list, but this dress makes her look like a satin sack of potatoes. And we miss her Afro! #sigh
  • Joy Bryant

    Had the night's theme been "Bollywood," Joy's look would have been right on target. However, this year's Met Gala called for a more over-the-top aesthetic. Better luck next year.
  • Zoe Kravitz

    There isn't really anything wrong with this dress -- it's a red hot little number. However, what we're not feeling is Zoe's "blah" hair and those chunky black heels.
  • Zoe Saldana

    This dress is wearing Zoe and not the other way around. It's way too big and poofy.
