Heidi Klum & Emma Roberts In Escada – 2012 Met Gala

Escada dressed Heidi Klum and Emma Roberts at the 2012 Met Gala, which was held on Monday night in New York City.

Heidi wore a custom-made French Chantilly-lace slip dress with cut-outs that raced from the back around the hip into a dramatic slit.

The only thing that saves this look for me is the Lorraine Schwartz necklace as I also dislike her shoe choice.

Emma wore an Escada custom-made marigold yellow silk-gazar strapless gown with a peplum detail that morphed into a sculptural swallowtail train.

A sapphire silk-satin belt accentuated the waist of her gown which was accessorized with Bulgari, and a sparkly Swarovski clutch.

I love the styling which included sleek retro waves and dark eye makeup.

I don’t get a sense of girl playing dress up in mummy’s clothes anymore. She’s starting to command my attention at this big events, which is no easy feat.

Emily Blunt In Calvin Klein – 2012 Met Gala

Emily Blunt joined John Krasinski on the red carpet at the 2012 Met Gala, which was held on Monday night in New York City.

She looked amazing wearing a Calvin Klein pretty pink gown with cut-outs at the sides and an open back.

With her hair worn down, the British actress completed her look with dark eye makeup and a pink lip shade, statement jewelry and a crystal-embellished box clutch.

Is it me, or are all these Calvin Klein gowns starting to look the same?

It’s like they just keep putting out different variations of Emma Stone’s 2011 Golden Globes dress and Jennifer Lawrence’s Oscar 2011 dress.

Ginnifer Goodwin In Monique Lhuillier – 2012 Met Gala

Following her Kentucky Derby disaster, Ginnifer Goodwin really needed to step things up several notches at the 2012 Meta Gala to erase the horrible memory.

She should consider herself totally redeemed as she looked sensational wearing a Monique Lhuillier gown.

The tangerine silk-chiffon cap-sleeve gown with an embroidered neckline and draped skirt and leather tangerine belt was styled with H.Stern jewels.

I would be lying if I said that I liked her Brian Atwood silver satin pumps, but I want to give Ginnifer a pass for getting everything else so right.

Lily Collins In Valentino Couture – 2012 Met Gala

Lily Collins had yet another princess moment on the red carpet at the 2012 Met Gala, which was held on Monday night in New York City.

She looked adorable wearing a Valentino Spring 2012 Couture gown.

Her off-white sheer lace gown with a floral underlay, long sleeves, and a bow waistband is very ‘Little House on the Prairie’, but she totally makes it work for her.

Lily teamed her romantic gown with a Valentino grey snakeskin clutch and H. Stern jewels.

A pretty updo and soft makeup completed her look.

Kristen Stewart In Balenciaga – 2012 Met Gala

Kristen Stewart attended the 2012 Met Gala, which was held on Monday night in New York City.

As the face of the latest Balenciaga fragrance, the actress represented the brand wearing a look from their Fall 2012 collection.

Whilst she was one of the most unique stars on the red carpet wearing a dress with a black-and-silver embellished bodice and a colour-block leather skirt, I can’t take those hideous shoes seriously.

The black heels with the white laces almost kill all that is good with this look.

I was only temporarily excited when I saw this look because she does embodied the spirit of the brand so well and I love the chocolate-brown wavy locks.

From the ankles up, this gets a thumbs up from me.

Katharine McPhee In Elie Saab – 2012 Met Gala

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.

Claire Danes In J. Mendel – 2012 Met Gala

Claire Danes was joined by her husband Hugh Dancy on the red carpet at the 2012 Met Gala, held on Monday night in New York City.

She looked amazing wearing a J. Mendel gown.

Her white silk asymmetrical wrap-like gown with a single satin lapel was beautifully covered in crystal embellishments.

The ‘Homeland’ actress continued to sparkle adding Van Cleef & Arpels jewels.

The rest of Claire’s accessories included a deep sky-blue clutch and white Christian Louboutin peep-toe pumps

A voluminous updo, cat-eyes and a gorgeous smile completed her look.

My only complaint about this look is that I wish the satin detail stopped at the waist. The look would’ve been cleaner without the trailing satin piece which looks a tad awkward.
