It doesn't take much to get a television show these days.

All you need is a bright fresh face, some tricks, and the ability to grocery shop.

Case in point: Semi Homemade Cooking With Sandra Lee.

The buxom blonde is best known for making shitty food from processed ingredients that no one should consume. Ever.

Remember Kwanzaa cake? In case you're unaware, it's a traditional African dish of angel food cake iced with store-bought frosting, cinnamon, apple pie filling, pumpkin seeds and corn nuts with seven Kwanzaa candles on top.

Well, you can't leave a corn nut locked in its cage; the semi chef (we use that term lightly) turned up at the Met Gala dressed as a giant Disney princess.

With big flouncy bits on her hips (yes, that's the official fashion term we're using) and shiny aqua-colored satin, she looks like a modern rendition of Cinderella -- and that's not a compliment.

This year's gala theme honored mid-20th century fashion designer Charles James' career with an exhibit entitled "Charles James: Beyond Fashion."

Just like every event, guests aim to interpret the fashion of the named designer or theme. James is a British-born designer is widely known as "America's First Couturier." He's known for his highly structured aesthetic -- he was the first to design the A-line coat and created waves in the fashion world with his trapeze dress.

Christian Dior referred to him "the greatest talent of my generation."

In all fairness, Lee was looking to interpret one of the designers looks, but she still looks ridiculous.
