Trust Christina Ricci to wear a show-stopping frock to the 2012 Met Gala, held on Monday night in New York City.

The petite actress wore a bespoke Thakoon dress.

Her guipure and lace bandeau with a blush silk organza bow was teamed with a high-waist tea-length guipure lace skirt.

Many would’ve failed to display this creation so elegantly, but Christiana pulls it off with great aplomb.

Normally I find bows can be overly fussy on the red carpet, but on this particular look it is almost a work of art the way it is perfectly framed behind her.

Black patent pumps, a floral cocktail ring, a slicked-back hairdo and studded earrings completed her look.

I’m guessing this will be the night’s marmite dress.

Do you love it or hate it?
