The Met Gala is my favourite red carpet event. This year it was in honour of McQueen, and the red carpet didn't disappoint. In no particular order... enjoy a few of my favourites.
I'm surprised at how much I liked this look. I'm not usually a J-Lo fan. At all. But I think the flower detailed shrug moves it away from a booty hugging gown (aka like this infamous green dress) to an actual couture gown. Most of all I think it's the makeup, and most especially the lipstick
Leighton Meester in Louis Vuitton A/W11. I thought she looked absolutely fabulous, though not sure I'm a fan of those shoes with the length of the dress. I love the length of the dress, and the bondage in the detail. But the strapping on the shoes - it changes the look to one that says trussed.
Mia Waskiowska, in Thakoon, was also beautiful. Cute hair, interesting hem, pouffy skirt.
Lily Donaldson, in Erdem. Oh lace. Oh collar. Oh demure and whimsy and pale mauve bluebells.
Emma Stone is one of my favourite actresses, because Easy A is the bomb. This gorgeous floral Erdem gown goes beautifully with her soft hair. And again, the makeup is flawless.
Stunning stunning stunning. And Topshop! I love short hair on girls. I love how this dress accentuates her curves, and the shoes are plain sexy. It reminds me of something Leighton Meester would wear.
Taylor Swift, whose music I unashamedly love, is always on the my style list. And here she doesn't fail in a gorgeous deconstructed J. Mendel gown. I'm going to sound like a broken record, but again, the makeup! Those dark lips and pale skin.
Other notable mentions include Diane Kruger, who has killer pins, but didn't really shift from her goddess-like style. Zoe Saldana looked phenomenal in butter yellow. Also Nicole Richie (amazingly gothic details in the accesories for such a graceful gown), Liv Tyler (starbust yellow splash!), Doutzon Kroes (who might have wanted to avoid Gisele Bundchen because that's all-a-much too red for a red carpet), and the top half of Christina Ricci's dress. Oh, I could go on and on and on. And I haven't even gotten to the disasters... I might do that tomorrow night.
