Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was elegance personified on the red carpet at the 2012 Met Gala, held in New York City on Monday night.

The model/actress wore a custom Burberry gown.

Her striped copper-and-black draped-back tulle gown with an embroidered glass-beaded neckline was one of the best looks to hit the red carpet.

No sexy face, no plunging neckline, just a gorgeous gown for a stunning woman.

She kept the look simple with a pair of Irene Neuwirth 18k rose-gold earrings, J/Hadley ring and a bronze Burberry clutch.

With her hair pulled up in a high bun, she sported golden bronze eye shadow and a pale-pink lip colour.
