Metropolitan Opera 2009-10 Season Opening Night

Julie Macklowe will be the envy of every celebrity and socialite in New York, as she was the first to get her hands on the Jason Wu Spring 2010 collection.

She walked the red carpet wearing a multi print sculptural dress, paired with high heeled pumps and a silver clutch.

Karolina Kurkova delicately caressed her baby bump with a stunning silver gown from the Marchesa Spring 2008 collection.

Three quarters of the bodice was embellished, with a chiffon detail covering her other shoulder and draping through-out the rest of the gown.

Her look was paired with silver heels.

I think we could have a maternity style face-off between Heidi Klum and Karolina.

Joy Bryant sticks to her tried, trusted and favourite brand.

This time the fresh faced beauty wore a red and black print Missoni Pre-Fall 2009 modified gown which was cinched in at the waist with a red belt.

If someone has offered me this Zac Posen Resort 2010 gown with voluminous sleeves, I would have declined after seeing the runway picture.

But on Mischa Barton the gown is outstanding.

She used a large chunky gold belt and makes the gown slightly off-the-shoulder, swept her hair over the opposite shoulder as if my magic, I’ve fallen in love with the gown.

Patricia Clarkson is elegant as always wearing a one shoulder Gucci gown, with a diamante detailing which gathers the dress towards her hip.

Flawless make-up and a black Gucci clutch complete the look.
