Katharine McPhee added a touch of Elie magic to the red carpet at the 2012 Met Gala, held in New York City on Monday evening.

The ‘Smash’ actress looked sensational donning this coral hue.

Her gorgeous curves are caressed by this fully embroidered Elie Saab Spring 2012 gown with a deep square neckline which is accented by a matching belt.

A wavy updo, gold jewels and a bronze Christian Louboutin minaudière completed her statuesque red-carpet look.

Is it me or does she look super tall in this gown?

Need I say one of my favourites of the night? No? OK then.
