met costume gala 2012 kate upton At the 2012 Met Costume Gala, Kate Upton dresses downKate Upton got her wish when she stepped on to the red carpet at the 2012 Met Costume Institute Gala. Of course, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model and “Cat Daddy” expert had to pay for her own $25,000 ticket — but who’s keeping score?

Upton, who was attending with designer Micheal Kors, arrived wearing a liquid silver sequined sheath that accented her lovely curves in all the wrong places. Let’s face it, the dress was downright saggy. Next time, Upton may want to opt for Spanx and a few other base layer items before stepping into her gown.

Caveat: It’s entirely possible that the gown just isn’t photogenic. Upton is a knockout and the dress, in theory, is beautiful. It just may not translate in pictures.
