Daphne Guinness made a dramatic entrance on the red carpet at the 2011 Met Gala – as expected.

She opted for a feathered Alexander McQueen Spring 2011 frock.

The lilac creation with exaggerated hips was worn with silver Mary Janes. I had hoped she would wear the armadillo shoes from the Spring 2011 collection.

Her statement gown was accessorized with tasseled earrings and styled with her signature blonde and black updo hairstyle.
