Met Ball Memories

Written by Alex. Posted in Trends

Greetings, Fashionistas! I hope you all are enjoying some R&R while still keeping up-to-date with the latest fashion news. Since I’ve been a bit stagnant in my writing recently, I thought I’d share with you my favorite Met Ball 2012 looks. From Anja Rubik’s revealing Vaccarello dress that has “put Angelina to shame”, to SJP’s floor-length floral Valentino gown, there was much to see at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 7 in New York City. Along with many of you, I too hope to be invited to the Met Ball someday! Here are some of the looks that I thought stood out among the rest:

Camilla Belle in Ralph Lauren
I was absolutely stunned by the effortless silhouette of Camilla Belle. Her Ralph Lauren Collection ivory tulle beaded dress (with champagne python sandals) was absolutely flawless, and I really think her make up and hair matched perfectly. She mixed old Hollywood glamor and new-age style quite well.

Amy Poehler in Fotini
Funny girl Amy Poehler surprised me at the Met Ball! I love that she incorporated two trends of today: the peplum skirt and feather details. I think it beautifully accentuated her curves, and definitely proved to the rest of us that she can sport high-fashion gowns when the time is right.

Jessica Alba in Michael Kors
Metallics were a hit at the 2012 Met Ball, and Jessica looked wonderful in a glittery one shoulder Michael Kors golden dress. The gathering at her waist emphasized her perfectly petite figure.

Diane Kruger in Prada
I’m a huge Diane Kruger fan, and I love that she always stays on top of the latest and most important fashion trends. I adored her Prada gown in deep eggplant with an enormous feather hem, especially because of the simple skater dress top. She is well-known for sporting body conscious dresses, and I respect her even more for choosing this dress without a stylist’s help.

Worst dressed picks: Jamie King (custom Topshop), Dakota Fanning (Louis Vuitton), Mary-Kate Olsen (The Row).
