Beyonce Knowles In Emilio Pucci – 2011 Met Gala

I was hugely disappointed by Beyonce Knowles who walked the red carpet at the 2011 Met Gala in New York City this evening with her husband Jay-Z.

I had such high hopes for Bey in Emilio Pucci, but this style of dress is circa ‘Dream Girls’ which wasn’t a great period for the singer on the red carpet.

Her custom black mermaid gown with gold embroidery details has a really high neckline.

This high neckline was featured in many looks in the Fall 2011 collection, but I wish the neckline was open on this occasion.

I hoped this would be one of my favourites on the night, but it turned out to be my least favourite.

It might be a custom Pucci design, but it has Tina Knowles written all over it.

Leighton Meester In Louis Vuitton – 2011 Met Gala

Leighton Meester opted for a sexy LBD on the red carpet tonight at the 2011 Met Gala in New York City this evening.

Her Louis Vuitton strapless dress with cut-out and button details was paired with a black clutch and black shoes from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2011 collection.

I love the sleek back ponytail which allows us to see her Cathy Waterman earrings.

I would’ve preferred sandals to strappy booties, but Leighton always opted for something a bit different at this event.

Zoe Saldana In Calvin Klein – 2011 Met Gala

Zoe Saldana was a ray of sunshine on the red carpet at the 2011 Met Gala in New York City this evening.

She opted for a Calvin Klein gown.

The lemon minimalist gown adds an additional glow to the radiant star.

Zoe’s refreshing look was teamed with a stunning gold Platt boutique necklace.

Kristen Stewart In Proenza Schouler – 2011 Met Gala

Kristen Stewart looked the best she ever looked on the red carpet at the 2011 Met Gala in New York City this evening.

I honestly didn’t recognise her.

I no longer sense the “I don’t wanna be here” attitude as that has been replaced by a knowing confident look.

She wore a Proenza Schouler crimson embroidered silk halter dress with a split down the side.

I’m guessing this collaboration came about after Kristen wore Proenza Schouler exclusively for her Vogue February 2011 editorial.

A chic updo, black cuffs on both wrists and a black clutch completed her look.

Penelope Cruz In Oscar de la Renta – 2011 Met Gala

I felt a huge sense of de ja vu when I saw Penelope Cruz on the red carpet at the 2011 Met Gala in New York City this evening.

I went back over my archives and realised why.

The black Oscar de la Renta Fall 2011 gown is very similar to the Armani Prive gown she wore to the 2011 Golden Globes.

Penelope’s black silk organza thin strap banded Oscar de la Renta gown with draped detail and mermaid hem was paired with Chopard jewels and a feathered clutch.

Michelle Williams In Miu Miu – 2011 Met Gala

I was most impressed with Michelle Williams on the red carpet at the 2011 Met Gala in New York City this evening.

She’s finally wearing a supportive bra and she’s wearing a colour other than white.

Michelle opted for a Miu Miu silk open back dress accented with gold swallow embroidery and grosgrain bow details accenting the shoulders and waist.

I love her bronzed glow. I can’t find a single fault.

Freida Pinto In Chanel Couture – 2011 Met Gala

Frieda Pinto arrived alone at the 2011 Met Gala in New York City this evening.

The Indian actress looked gorgeous wearing a Chanel Spring 2010 Couture gown.

Her white silk cold shoulder gown has a cute black tie.

I’m not sure how you all feel about this, but I love it.

I much prefer Freida’s thinner tie.

Chopard jewels and a black clutch completed her look.

Is it me or is Freida brimming with confidence lately? I’m sensing a new attitude and I love it.

Diane Kruger In Jason Wu – 2011 Met Gala

Diane Kruger looked stunning when she arrived at the 2011 Met Gala in New York City this evening.

No one should be surprised that she’s wearing a dress from her favourite designer Jason Wu.

The dual colour Jason Wu Fall 2011 dress has a nude embellished long sleeved top and a black skirt.

Diane did a ‘Megan Fox/Blake Lively’ by ensuring that the photographers got to see her leg through the split in her gown.

Sleek waves, red lips, a Jimmy Choo ‘Lina’ clutch and black peep-toes completed her look.
