The annual MET Costume Institute Gala, or the Oscars of Fashion, was held last night in New York City. I look forward to seeing the red carpet arrival pictures of this event every year. I love that Vogue’s Anna Wintour handpicks the stars she wants to attend and actually pairs them with the designer who will dress them. I picture it like a much more grown up and posh version of picking teams for kickball with celebs lined up on one side of a room, designers on another and Anna in the middle with a whistle and clipboard.
This year’s gala did not disappoint, here are my favorite looks of the night.
Solange Knowles, wearing Rachel Roy, looked fresh in two of this season’s hottest trends: bright color and peplum.
Camilla Belle, in Ralph Lauren Collection, absolutely dazzled. Her gown was perfect for her skin tone and she gave it a more edgy feel with the dark lip.
Claire Danes kept it chic in a white asymmetrical J. Mendel gown. When wearing a white gown it’s important to keep it simple but put a sexy spin on it so it doesn’t look bridal.
While most would look like a poorly wrapped package in this black lace Thakoon gown, Christina Ricci’s petite frame rocked it.
Baring her back in Tom Ford, Rihanna looked absolutely stunning in a more minimalistic gown.
