Met Gala 2013 Roundup

Met Gala 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening. Models @ The Met post will follow.

Brooklyn Decker: The actress wore a custom Peter Pilotto look inspired by the Spring 2013 collection. While the look is custom I feel like I have seen this look several times before, so there is nothing fresh or new about it, unlike other custom looks as showcased by Karolina Kurkova and several others. Her Sergio Rossi ‘Hypnos’ sandals, however, are a work of art.

Alicia Keys: The singer took to the red carpet wearing a custom Jason Wu gown. Her black leather and bordeaux sequin embroidered halter gown is beautiful, but I wish Alicia had pushed the punk vibe with the styling a bit more; the red streaks in her hair aren’t enough for me, especially when we know Alicia isn’t afraid of taking a fashion risk. Robert Lee Morris jewels and a vintage clutch completed her look.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The actress wore a beautiful custom Calvin Klein scarlet gown for the occasion which was punked up as far as she would go with a studded choker and a Tod’s black studded clutch with a gold frame. While I do love this look, I wish Maggie had gone bra shopping before this event.

Brookyln Decker In Preen – Vanity Fair And Juicy Couture Celebration Of The 2013 Vanities Calendar

Brookyln Decker In Preen S13 - Vanity Fair And Juicy Couture Celebration Of The 2013 Vanities Calendar

Brooklyn Decker strutted her stuff at the Vanity Fair and Juicy Couture Celebration of the 2013 Vanities Calendar with Olivia Munn last night at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles.

The actress wore a top and skirt from the Preen Spring 2013 collection.

The ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting’ actress paired her graphic ensemble with a pair of grey snakeskin Prabal Gurung for Casadei strappy sandals.

So many prints juxtaposed could easily have crossed into overkill territory, but by keeping within the same design collection, Decker’s look is visually appealing rather than jarring.

The star’s newly darker ombré hair is also a refreshing change. The darker hue accents her blue eyes and bone structure beautifully.

Who Wore Femme D’armes Better…Brooklyn Decker or Louise Roe?

Who Wore Femme D’armes Better Brooklyn Decker or Louise Roe

We were first introduced to Femme D’armes by Brooklyn Decker, who wore this black lace gown with an open back and thigh-high slit to the ‘Battleship’ premiere in Seoul, South Korea back in April last year.

Styling the look with Christian Louboutin criss-cross pumps and wavy tresses, she was pitch perfect.

British TV host Louise Roe wore the nude version of the dress to the 2012 Glamour Woman of the Year Awards back in November.

Her soft, pretty dress was styled with a faux bob, a hot-pink Maison Martin Margiela for H&M candy-wrapper clutch, Sorellina earrings, a Lulu Frost bracelet and toe-cap pumps from her own Stylistpick collection.

On Sunday night, sporting a trendy top-knot, Louise wore the same dress again to the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, this time in black.

Adding a bit of high-street chic to the red carpet, she styled her look with Zara shoes, with her other accessories including Jacqueline Nerguizian jewels and a Farbod Barsum clutch.

Brooklyn wins for me as I prefer her simple styling of this look.

Brooklyn Decker In Michael Kors – Michael Kors Golden Heart Gala

Brooklyn Decker’s look at Michael Kors’ Golden Heart Gala yesterday evening was quite the head scratcher.

While the vibe of the event was quite laidback, I can’t say I’m a fan of her look.

She wore a silver metallic pebbled brocade origami-cut sequin top and silver metallic pebbled brocade mini shorts.

The shorts are my issue. A nice pair of slacks would’ve been more event appropriate.

I’m also missing her locks. This caramel colour is pretty, but I prefer her as a blonde.

Grey sandals completed her below-par look.

Brooklyn can do better and she knows it. She had plenty to choose from so she has no excuses.

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better…Shalom Harlow, Brooklyn Decker or Edie Falco?

Celebs love Stella McCartney, we all know that, but in this case they are loving this ‘Saskia’ gown.

Shalom Harlow attended Stella McCartney’s special presentation during London Fashion Week back in February wearing this beautiful navy-and-white gown with illusion side panels from the Stella McCartney Evening 2012 collection.

She accessorized her gown with a gold waistband and a gold Stella McCartney clutch, opting for curled locks, smoky eyes and a nude lip.

Brooklyn Decker also wore this gown when she attended the Tokyo premiere for ‘Battleship’ back in April.

The actress opted not to accessorize the look which was accented with a gold waistband.

Last month the Stella McCartney gown made a return to the red carpet at the 2012 Emmy Awards courtesy of Edie Falco.

The ‘Nurse Jackie’ actress opted for gold sandals, crystal drop earrings and orange painted nails.

For keeping the look minimal and looking drop-dead gorgeous with what appears to be minimal effort, Brooklyn stands out in this gown by a very long mile.

You can buy this Stella McCartney gown from
Net-A-Porter.com, Matches Fashion US and Matches Fashion International.
