MET BALL 2012

As Bruno Mars said before performing last night, “Hello Fashion!” The red carpet of the East Coast was ablaze with A-listers, designers, models, and the crème of the fashion world. The 2012 Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which celebrated the new exhibit “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations,” left a lasting impression. From gowns to suits, from neutrals to brights; the fashion was not a disappointment. Bright reds and whites, metallic shine, transparent sheer, fringy texture, there were an abundance of many bold risks.

Below are two of my favourite looks from the night. This sheer Givenchy Haute Couture gown by Riccardo Tisci looked magnificent on Queen B. With sparkling flowered black embroidery and a feathery black and purple train, this dress was astounding. This tasteful gown showed off Beyoncé’s post-baby body in a way that was unforgettable. Dramatic, bold, transparent, and artistic–this gown was definitely a winner.

I also loved Jessica Alba’s look – I think she really nailed the old Hollywood glamour with her side-swept waves, refined make-up with a deep currant lipstick and a one shouldered bronze metallic gown.
