Met Ball

For Vogue to be hosting an event you know it has to be the biggest night in fashion and that is exactly what the Met Ball brings!  Each year there is a theme as it celebrates the opening of a new fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute in the Metropolitan Museum.  This year featured Schiaparelli and Prada with the theme titled 'Impossible Conversations'.  

Anna Wintour wearing Prada

Among the 800 people who were on this events guest list I still somehow narrowed down my 10 favourite looks of the evening.  Between models, actresses, singers and designers themselves, everyone looked their finest for the red carpet last night.

Rooney Mara wearing Givenchy
I adore Rooney.  She has a history of some really great red carpet looks and this one can go ahead and be added to the list!  She's covered up yet the sheer lace makes it so sexy and the leather belt gives it edge.  Love!

 Jessica Alba wearing Michael Kors
Can't say I'm a fan but I really love her overall look.  The gold crinkled grecian style gown really looks great and the wavy hair and dark red lip pull everything together perfect.

Gisele Bundchen wearing Givenchy
I still don't quite know if Gisele made my list because of how great this dress is or if I'm just overwhelmed because - well it's Gisele!  This girl has sex appeal and I'm all about it.

Camilla Bell wearing Ralph Lauren
I'll admit I don't even know who this actress really is but this dress is HOT!  This form fitting, sheer strapping gown fits this body like a glove!

Rihanna wearing Tom Ford
Rihanna arriving fashionably late (apparently not impressing Anna Wintour in the slightest) wearing an alligator that I have to admit I thought was Givenchy at first sight.  Regardless of designer and tardiness this simple dress is fierce!

Jourdan Dunn & Cara Delevingne wearing Burberry
These two Burberry models are so incredibly stunning they just had to make it on my list, especially since they didn't get enough credit from anyone else!

Rachel Zoe wearing Rachel Zoe
Well duh!  Of course she's wearing Rachel Zoe.  I love this stylist / designer.  And you know what else I love?  Fringe and chunky necklaces so yes I'm liking the look!

Gwyneth Paltrow wearing Prada
She seriously gets hotter with age it's not even fair.  Yes she makes my best dressed list because she always does!  It doesn't hurt to have the body and more specifically her legs either.  I doubt there's anything that looks terrible on her

Sarah Jessica Parker wearing Valentino
Yes I agree this dress looks old lady like with it's faded floral print but hello - it's Sarah Jessica Parker wearing it and I think she looks beautiful!  No one could make it look as fabulous as Carrie!

  1. Love all your pics, but super sad that you didn't include Karolina Kurkova in the custom Rachel Zoe :( wish I could pull off a turban like that!

  2. Aww, I loved it too!! The back of the dress was unreal. I decided to change up my favorites by adding a designer in the mix. My apologies but I definitely agree with you I should have put them as a pair xx
