MET Gala 2011
This year's MET Gala in New York honoured the late Alexander McQueen and his work in the new exhibit (which I've been talking about for a while): Savage Beauty.
Famous Celebrities, Designers and Models attended the event wearing latest, vintage and some custom designs just for the event. Designer trends included McQueen (of course), Chanel and Stella McCartney while detailing was a technical theme with a lot of embellishments here and there. It's probably safe to say that the MET Gala is my favourite Red Carpet event, designers go all out with crazy and interesting designers unlike any other event.
Above are my top looks from the Gala.
Blake Lively - Attending the Gala with Karl Lagerfeld, the face of Chanel's Mademoiselle Handbags wore Chanel Fall 2009 Couture dress. I love love love the asymmetric nature of the gown. The combination of the draped shoulder and bottom and the form fitting silver detailed bodice is tres amazing.
Diane Kruger - Wearing her favourite designer Jason Wu, Kruger rocks this Fall 2011 dress with long nude sleeve top and black skirt. Another love for the detailing on the nude top, the black skirt has a tight high slit just to mix things up. Very old school glamour vibe.
Freida Pinto - Pinto looks tres chic and amazing, let me put this out there. Wearing Chanel Couture from their Spring/Summer 2010 collection, I love love love the black tie against the white silk dress genius in my books.
Isabel Lucas - The Aussie actress brings her boho look forward and into uber glam, wearing a coral/melon Louis Vuitton halter dress. She accessories with a gold headpiece, drop earrings and a cute geometric clutch with a bottom tassel.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley - In a custom rose silk Burberry dress, Huntington-Whiteley looks tres amazing. Something about her look just screams out to me. Not many girls could pull this dress off. She finished the look with shoes and clutch all from Burberry.
Sarah Jessica Parker - Finally SJP dons none other than McQueen from his 2005 Fall collection. The dress is embellished all over with silver crystals, and it looks so good on SJP whom accompanied McQueen to the Met in tartan in 2006.
