Red Carpet Fashion: Met Gala 2012

The Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art {aka the Met Gala} promises to bring a night of stunning red carper looks. VIPs, actresses, models, designers, and more flood the red carpet in balls of tulle, layers of lace and shiny sequins making this star studded event one for the books. As one fashion's most prestigious nights, over the top glamour is a must. Here's the short and sweet version of my fav looks from 2012's Met Gala

Diane Kruger is flawless in this pleated and feathered purple Prada gown. The hippie chic jewelry, the hot pink Prada clutch, perfect and slightly messy tresses. I am swooning over this look. Amazeballs.

January Jones struck a major fashion forward vibe in this structured Versace lemon yellow gown. I so appreciate that since she wears so much vintage on Mad Men, she tries to step out of the box in real life and on the carpet. This futuristic shape is extremely flattering while the color and her Cartier turquoise necklace keep the vibe modern and current. Love!

Gold lamé is definitely not easy to pull off. But Jessica Alba wears her Michael Kors with grace and elegance. The key to keeping this fabric out of trashy territory is simplicity. Side swept curls and golden toned accessories make this look a definite "Do"

Camilla Belle's look is nothing short of dramatic. The dark lips, glittering column gown and severe chignon all seem to work together in perfect harmony. This ivory Ralph Lauren Collection piece fits her body to a T and I feel like she's totally channeling a roaring 1920's siren. Taking it one step further, she compliments the exquisite dress with the designer's Vintage Collection gems. Vamp it up Camilla!

Last but not least, Eva Mendes glammed up the carpet with this bright orange Prada choice. The peplum waist and two-toned embellished bodice is quirky and something that maybe only she could pull off. Eva matched her Prada clutch and Fred Leighton earrings fabulously. P.S. can I please have her hair?!

Those were my picks - what were yours?! I want to know! Anyone you loved that I missed?

  1. I am in 100% agreement of the first four. I LOVED Kate Bosworth in that burgandy feather dress! Diane can do no wrong and Camilla Belle? Hot damn she looked FAB!!!!!

    1. I know - Diane Kruger is pure fashion goddess. I liked Kate B too but wasn't a knockout fav. And I knew not everyone would love Eva - but I do! :)
