Cate Blanchett In Alexander McQueen – 2012 Met Gala

When it was revealed that Sarah Burton was in town for the 2012 Met Gala, the first person on my wish list as her guest was Cate Blanchett.

Cate was her guest, indeed, taking to the red carpet wearing an Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 gown on Monday night.

The Australian actress wore the black feather gown with a dramatic ostrich hem without the tiered coat.

Had Lady Gaga worn this gown, I would imagine she would’ve worn the look as presented on the runway for a more dramatic effect; but Cate modified the look to suit her laidback, chic style.

Black t-bar Alexander McQueen Armadillo heel sandals and an Alexander McQueen black pom pom skull clutch plus Van Cleef & Arpels jewels accesorized her look.

A simple ponytail and barely-there makeup provided the finishing touches.

Diane Kruger In Prada – 2012 Met Gala

Diane Kruger was part of the Prada party at the 2012 Met Gala, held in New York on Monday evening.

The German actress opted for another loose-fitting look. This time she wore a Prada purple layered crepe silk chiffon V-necked gown with ostrich feathered hemline.

Her bohemian, romantic look was accessorized with a hot pink embellished clutch and a gold necklace with purple stones.

I didn’t like this at first, but it grew on me as the night wore on.

One thing we can always expect from Diane is a flawless presentation.

Do you like this look, or were you expecting more from Diane?

Shailene Woodley In Christopher Kane – 2012 Met Gala

When Shailene Woodley stepped out for the Vanity Fair party, I wished she had modified her dress into a gown.

Well that is just what she did with this Christopher Kane Fall 2012 dress for Monday nights 2012 Met Gala, which goes from knee-length on the runway to full-length on the red carpet.

Her gunmetal chainmail dress with multi-coloured wire, floral embroidery and leather panel details is just the futuristic, youthful look that the actress needed during awards season.

Not one to add many accessories, Shailene completed her look with a sleek ponytail and diamond stud earrings.

Rihanna In Tom Ford – 2012 Met Gala

I was surprised at how Rihanna’s look was so subdued on the red carpet at the 2012 Met Gala, held in New York on Monday evening. I was expecting an over-the-top look with a ridiculous hairstyle.
But I was wrong.

The singer donned a sleek Tom Ford Fall 2012 backless crocodile dress which fit her like a glove.

Her long sleeve dress was teamed with some dangerous dark coloured talons and a dark nude lip colour.

I wish she opted for the trend of the night by opting for a dark lip shade.

Christian Louboutin heels completed her look.

Gwyneth Paltrow In Prada – 2012 Met Gala

Gwyneth Paltrow never fails to amaze on the red carpet, so I knew the 2012 Met Gala, held in New York City on Monday evening, would be no exception.

Wearing a Prada steel blue duchesse halter neck dress, Gwynie did not disappoint.

With inverted back pleats and micro-paillettes embroidered patch pockets, a simple silhouette is given a complete makeover.

Like Kate Bosworth, Gwyneth proves that short dresses can be every bit as glamorous.

Steel blue Prada shoes with embellished heels, Anna Hu Haute Joaillerie hooped earrings, a statement ring and a satin blush Prada clutch accessorized her look.

A sleek center-parted bun provided the finishing touch.
