Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Paloma Faith In Michael Cinco - 2013 Met Gala

The only person to find the perfect blend of punk and drama was of course Paloma Faith, who took to the red carpet on Monday evening for the 2013 Met Gala in New York City.

Like Kylie Minogue, I was surprised the Dolce devotee didn’t opt for the Italian duo for her red carpet look; instead she worked a stunning Michael Cinco blood-red-and-black sequined gown featuring built-in gloves.

From the back you can see her bird tattoos via the sheer panel. Even as one who isn’t a fan of tattoos, I would’ve preferred the back to be open as I find the sheer panel bothersome.

Paloma’s dress is outstanding; however, her styling sells this look to me.

An architectural headpiece, bold red lips, a beautiful bouffant, sculpted brows and cat eyes completed her look.

I know many of you don’t understand my fascination with this woman, but she ALWAYS delivers on the red carpet.

There is never a dull moment when she is around.

Kim Kardashian Givenchy - 2013 Met Gala

I know this is one post you weren’t expecting to see, but I was so horrified at how bad Kim Kardashian looked at the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening that I was compelled to write something.

Anna Wintour lifted her bar on the reality TV star from last year’s Met Gala to allow her to walk proudly with her baby daddy Kanye West on the red carpet on Monday evening.
As you know, Anna has final approval on the looks, so this could be her having the last laugh.

I mean, really, this floral Givenchy Fall 2013 blossom gown is not only horrendous but it is doing nothing for her and I have seen it from every angle.

We have complained that some didn’t try hard enough last night, but Kim tried too hard. Her desperation was oozing from her every pore.

Aside from the side slit, I think the high-neck, built-in-glove gown made her look frumpy. Just when I thought she was getting to grips with her maternity style, which she was fighting against for so long, this goes and happens.

Stéphane Rolland would’ve made her a far more flattering gown.

Diane Kruger In Chanel Couture - 2013 Met Gala

Diane Kruger and her handsome man, Joshua Jackson, attended the 2013 Met Gala at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

While he hit a prepster note, our fashion-girl found her inner punk-party gal with a Chanel Spring 2013 Couture dress.

The luxed-up, black lacy frock featured a sheer, gauzy overlay, which gave it a vampy vibe.

On Monday night, we also saw ‘Vogue’ editrix and gala co-chair Anna Wintour, along with Bella Heathcote, in looks from this Karl Lagerfeld Spring 2013 couture collection. But Diane’s exit was the most dark and gothic of the three.

She accessorized with Jacob & Co. chunky chain bangles and a clutch that was truly spiked and dangerous.

Her dip-dyed blonde strands sported a bubble-gum pink shade, which added some unorthodox—and fun—edge to her low, knotted-up ponytail.

All in all, the look was simultaneously glamorous and subversive… we should have expected as much from Diane.

Karolina Kurkova In Mary Katrantzou - 2013 Met Gala

Karolina Kurkova took the red carpet at the 2013 Met Gala in New York City on Monday evening.

The Czech supermodel worked a custom Mary Katrantzou one-sleeve mini dress with a 3-D effect skirt to perfection.

Her multi-print dress may come off as too busy for some, but she has the style, confidence and attitude to make it work.

Studded ankle-strap pumps, a slicked back hairdo, extreme smoky eyes and a nude pout completed the look.

I had no doubt that Karolina would fully embrace the theme.

Katy Perry In Dolce & Gabbana - 2013 Met Gala

Quirky Katy Perry came back out to play at the 2013 Met Gala on Monday night in New York City.

And what a perfect event for her to give us some drama – Katy style.

She donned one of the opulent embellished pieces from the Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 collection.

The ‘Joan of Arc’ gown which she styled with a crown, crucifix earrings and a dark pout, was kinda let down with unimaginative pumps.

There were far better choices from the Dolce & Gabbana runway that she could’ve selected.

Were you let down by the heels, or are you too busy taking in the rest of her look to worry about her footwear?
