Met Costume Institute Gala 2010 Tina Fey jumper

After Tina Fey wore a short, striped Zac Posen gown at the Golden Globes, she got raked over by the fashion press for her risky look. But God love her, she went one better for the Met Costume Institute Gala 2010, bucking the traditional long, feminine gowns in favor of -- wait for it -- a strapless, zip-up jumpsuit by Yves Saint Laurent.

The blue jumpsuit itself is pretty hot as jumpsuits go, with a slight sheen, front pleats and a black bow closure at the top of a zipped-down-to-there bustline. She paired the jumper with a matching gold zippered clutch, black satin platform pumps, rosy cheeks and super smoky eyes that we don't think we've ever seen on Fey.

Perhaps she thought her uber-feminine beauty routine would be best tempered by a more masculine outfit. Or perhaps she was just reacting against any flak she's received for being too sexy on magazine covers of late.

At least it didn't have an electrical component, as Katy Perry's flat-out-wacky glowing dress did.

In any case, with a choice this bold, fans are either going to love it or hate it. Which side are you on? (Either way, don't forget to catch her on SNL this Saturday when Betty White hosts!)
