Every year it’s so exciting to see who will show up at the Met Gala, and most importantly, what they will be wearing. This year the theme for the gala was “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” which featured an archive of the late designer’s creations. Rihanna showed up in a fabulous lace dress by Stella McCartney. Following her usual risque style, the right side of the dress was completely sheer. Twilight star Kristin Stewart arrived in Proenza Schouler with one of the talented designers on each side of her. Although we love this brand, the dress could have been fitted better at the top and wasn’t my favorite.
Now for the couples review! Diane Kruger looked gorgeous as usual, flashing one of her perfect legs in a Jason Wu Fall 2011 dress with a serious slit down the front. Her arm candy boyfriend, Dawson’s Creek actor Joshua Jackson looked just as good in his quirky suit and skinny tie. Next arrived Hip Hop’s favorite couple-Jay Z and Beyonce. There’s no doubt of this singer’s beauty, but her Emilio Pucci dress seemed very uncomfortable. It was a bit too tight for my taste and the gold embroidery was not the best.
Something must be in the water in Hollywood, because there were several pregnant beauties in attendance. Jessica Alba showed up in a Ralph Lauren gown, while Kate Hudson chose Stella McCartney for the event. Both of the actresses looked stunning in gold, and each of them chose a matching hair accessory.
As usual, there were many fashion disasters on the carpet. If I could only pick two, they would have to be Naomi Campbell and Daphne Guinness, both in Alexander McQueen. I completely support honoring the late designer, but some looks should be reserved for the runway.
