Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Alexa Chung In Erdem - 2013 Met Gala

The always fashion-forward Alexa Chung wore a dress from Erdem’s Fall 2013 collection to the Met Gala.

I don’t read punk here, but I do love the subtle peek-a-boo factor of this dress. Bare midriffs are a huge trend this spring, and I like the trendy-without-being vulgar version this dress offers. I also really like the effect of wearing the black hotpants under the dress.

My one fashion complaint here is the extra high neckline, which takes this into victorian territory–it looks better on the runway stopping at the collarbone.

Alexa’s soft updo and simple makeup are well paired with the bold dress–Alexa never looks overdone, and tonight is no different.

Jessica Pare in Jason Wu - 2013 Met Gala

‘Mad Men’ star Jessica Pare struck a fierce pose in Jason Wu at the Met Gala tonight.

The structural hybrid top and gown is a departure from what Jason Wu is known for, and Jessica wears is well.

I really think Jessica has nailed this look from top to bottom. The look was styled perfectly on the runway, and the actress mimics that even down to the perfect strappy sandals, which accent the look perfectly.

Her sleek, center-parted updo continues in the modern feel of the gown, and her dramatic blue eyeshadow is navy enough that it isn’t painfully matchy-matchy with the color of the gown.

Major bravo for Jessica!

Kate Bosworth In Balmain - 2013 Met Gala

Kate Bosworth dared to bare her legs on the red carpet of the Met Gala.

The actress wore a long-sleeved embellished Balmain top, styled as a dress.

While most of the time wearing a top as a dress is a total fashion ‘don’t', Kate looks stunning. By adding a gold belt and a simple black Ferragamo pumps, she lets this gorgeous pink number really shine.

The star doesn’t often play up her eyes, and her bold cat eye is a nice touch with this opulent, sexy look.

This is one of my favorite looks from Kate in a while! Do you agree?

After last year’s show-stopping Givenchy confection, Beyonce just had to bring another knockout to the 2013 Met Gala red carpet, especially since she is the honorary chair.

And that she did, wearing Givenchy for the second time around in designer and gala co-chair Riccardo Tisci’s stunner.

The strapless black gown was built on a black croc-paneled corset bodice which gave way to a cascading, slit-to-there black skirt that was rimmed in digitally printed gold and bronze damask.

The long, sweeping train that trailed behind the songstress was the most eye-catching; it nearly appeared as if she was emerging from an engulfment of fashionable flames.

Of course, the long gloves and the knee-high boots, which were matched to the brilliant, fiery print of the gown, commanded plenty of attention, too.

Every time I looked at this ensemble, I noticed another detail not seen before—like the ever-so-punk-like grommet belt.

But, despite the boldness and the brashness, Beyonce looked utterly beautiful with her flowing, wavy locks and effortless makeup. No need to overdo things—she knows when enough is enough.

Gorgeous or garish?

Zhang Ziyi In Jason Wu - 2013 Met Gala

Zhang Ziyi looked flawless in Jason Wu at the Met Gala.

The ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ actress wore a strapless red-lace, trumpet skirt gown from Jason Wu, and she absolutely radiated as she made her way down the red carpet. She accented the gown with Christian Louboutin jewels, shoes and clutch.

Of course there’s nothing punk here, unless you count her black manicure, but I still love the look.

Her simple cat eye, peachy cheeks and semi-matte nude lips are spot-on, and the gorgeous star is impeccable from top to bottom.
