Vogue golden girl Kate Upton made a bizarre turn at the 2014 Met Gala.

The 21-year-old supermodel covered up her curves in a half sheer, flowy black Dolce & Gabbana gown - complemented with an oversized floral headdress.

“Getting ready for the met is so stressful #justkidding @stefanogabbana #dolceandgabbana” the 21-year-old model tweeted that day, with a photo of her drinking champagne while being pampered with her date for the vening, designer Stefano Gabbana.

Upton was one of countless celebrities who attended the super exclusive event, run by Anna Wintour, Sarah Jessica Parker and Bradley Cooper.

And with two spreads in both British and American Vogue in the last four months, her sway with the style bible is more pertinent than ever.

But she lost major style points in her bizarre ensemble.

The 21-year-old model has made a name for herself with her blonde bombshell looks and has appeared on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2012 and 2013. Her curvaceous figure has led people to compare her to screen siren Marilyn Monroe, but Kate thinks there are big differences between the two.

"But I feel like nowadays it's easy to be genuine and show your personality, whereas I don't think Marilyn had that opportunity. And clearly she had a dark side, and I don't have that."
