Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Met Gala 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening. Models @ The Met post will follow.

Brooklyn Decker: The actress wore a custom Peter Pilotto look inspired by the Spring 2013 collection. While the look is custom I feel like I have seen this look several times before, so there is nothing fresh or new about it, unlike other custom looks as showcased by Karolina Kurkova and several others. Her Sergio Rossi ‘Hypnos’ sandals, however, are a work of art.

Alicia Keys: The singer took to the red carpet wearing a custom Jason Wu gown. Her black leather and bordeaux sequin embroidered halter gown is beautiful, but I wish Alicia had pushed the punk vibe with the styling a bit more; the red streaks in her hair aren’t enough for me, especially when we know Alicia isn’t afraid of taking a fashion risk. Robert Lee Morris jewels and a vintage clutch completed her look.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The actress wore a beautiful custom Calvin Klein scarlet gown for the occasion which was punked up as far as she would go with a studded choker and a Tod’s black studded clutch with a gold frame. While I do love this look, I wish Maggie had gone bra shopping before this event.

Renee Zellweger In Prada - 2013 Met Gala

The first thing I said to myself upon seeing Renee Zellweger on the red carpet at the 2013 Met Gala was “where’s the train?”

We had several magic moments of Renee taking to the stairs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art wearing a spectacular gown with a flowing train.

On this occasion she wore a Prada knee-length frock from the Fall 2013 collection.

Her chocolate-brown long-sleeved dress enriched with crystals, paillettes and glass-beaded embroidery features a layered detail which falls from the hip.

As brown dresses go, this one isn’t too bad; what most impresses me here is the improved styling from the runway plus Renee’s hair and makeup – words I haven’t said in relation to Renee in a loooong while.

Her sophisticated non-punk look was styled with black satin pumps.

Uma Thurman In Zac Posen - 2013 Met Gala

This is one look where I don’t care if the punk theme applies. Uma Thurman looked breathtaking, giving us pure Hollywood glamour at the 2013 Met Gala on Monday in New York City.

The actress was, of course, wearing a Zac Posen gown; his workmanship is evident in the hourglass silhouette, floor-sweeping train and intricate detailing.

Her Efva Attling ‘Paparazzi’ ring, which makes a powerful statement, is the only punk element to her look – thankfully – as I want to drink in this regal excellence without any theatrics.

Chloe Sevigny In Proenza Schouler - 2013 Met Gala

The one person who I thought would’ve nailed the punk theme for Monday night’s 2013 Met Gala was Chloe Sevigny.

She proved me wrong.

The style maven, who’s known to take a fashion risk or two (didn’t she once have a punk phase?), opted for a long-sleeved Proenza Schouler Fall 2013 gown.

While this is a great look, it feels so wrong for the occasion and let’s face it, it’s a lazy effort.

The most punk rock thing about this look is the slashed detail.

And I’m over the Met Gala turban; been there and preferred that when Kate Moss and Karolina Kurkova rocked it.

Zooey Deschanel In Tommy Hilfiger - 2013 Met Gala

When up for nearly 24 hours straight, you tend to look out for those you recognize when coming to the end of blogging an epic event like the Met Gala.

This is why I missed Zooey Deschanel. The ‘New Girl’ actress was totally unrecognizable.

She didn’t wear a mohawk or sport super-thick eyebrows a la Ginnifer Goodwin (thankfully) for this punk-themed event: quite the opposite. She was the picture of elegance in her Tommy Hilfiger one-shouldered striped gown.

We are so used to the same hair and makeup from Zooey that her simple styling, lighter lip colour, and low side-swept bun sans bangs have transformed her into a totally different woman.

An Edie Parker safety-pin clutch and Forevermark jewels completed her look.

Are you as stunned by this transformation as I am?
