Hilary Swank joined a host of stars on the red carpet at the 2012 Met Gala, held on Monday night in New York City.

Looking amazing, as always, the actress wore a Michael Kors gown.

Her custom scarlett-chiffon tie-neck cascade gown was styled with a Michael Kors gold python barrel clutch and Michael Kors gold snake chain ankle-wrap stiletto sandals.

I love everything about this look; Hilary never lets me down and this stunner very much tells the story why. She’s never afraid of going big and bold.

Gold Fred Leighton jewels and gorgeous side-swept curls completed the look.
