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.

Ashley Greene In Donna Karan Atelier – 2012 Met Gala

Ashley Greene looked stunning at the 2012 Met Gala held in New York City on Monday evening.

As the current face of Donna Karan, Ashley had the honour of wearing a white Grecian Donna Karan Atelier gown designed especially for her.

Silk chiffon pleats wrapped around to accentuate a stone-encrusted sequined bustier, while a draped beaded fringe added an element of movement.

Ashley accessorized with silver Jacob & Co. earrings and a metallic clutch. Blown-out hair and glossy lips completed the look.

Donna Karan totally excelled at this event. Lets hope will be dressing some stars in Cannes next week.

Beyonce Knowles In Givenchy Couture – 2012 Met Gala

Beyonce Knowles stunned on the red carpet at the 2012 Met Gala held in New York on Monday evening.

I can only imagine the crowd’s reaction when Bey stepped on the red carpet showing off her post-baby body in a revealing Givenchy couture gown.

The showstopping look left little to the imagination with a sheer bodysuit covered in black lace and crystal embellishments, cascading into a skirt of black and purple feathers.

In contrast to the extreme dress, Beyonce let her natural beauty shine with barely-there makeup and a sleek ponytail.

Jessica Biel In Prada – 2012 Met Gala

Jessica Biel attended the 2012 Met Gala in New York City on Monday night.

Hanging onto the arm of her fiancé, Justin Timberlake, Jessica walked the red carpet in an ivory Prada dress.

The cocktail-length dress, made of double stretch satin fabric, clung to Jessica’s enviable figure, with a plunging deep V-neckline and cascading jade green stone embellishments.

A green Prada clutch and blush pumps accessorized the dress.

This is a good look for Jessica who tends to be a tad blah on the red carpet.

Jessica is a beautiful girl, but the horrible bowl-cut bangs really need to go.

Renée Zellweger In Emilio Pucci – 2012 Met Gala

We were all shocked when it was announced that Renée Zellweger was not going to be wearing Carolina Herrera to the 2012 Met Gala, held in New York City on Monday evening.

Fear not, because Peter Dundas for Emilio Pucci designed this elegant black silk gown especially for the actress.

The gown features chiffon details, an organza train and a sexy open back.

A sleek updo and silver chandelier earrings completed her look.

Leighton Meester In Marchesa – 2012 Met Gala

We can usually count on Leighton Meester to deliver one of the most daring looks at the annual Met Gala, but such was not the case last night at the 2012 Met Gala in New York City.

Leighton arrived looking more like her Upper East Side ‘Gossip Girl’ character, Blair Waldorf, than the risk-taking fashionista that we’re used to, wearing a gold appliqué and nude tulle Marchesa Fall 2012 gown.

The gown is beautiful, in typical Marchesa fashion, but I think it would be better suited to someone like Anne Hathaway.

With her hair pulled back and a wine-coloured lip colour, which was too harsh for her look, the actress added a gold Marchesa clutch to provide the finishing touch.

This is a rare miss for Leighton, both in the dress and makeup department.

Nina Dobrev In Donna Karan Atelier – 2012 Met Gala

Nina Dobrev will no doubt be top of many best dressed lists tonight after donning another stunning Donna Karan gown for the 2012 Met Gala held in New York City.

At this point, Nina needs to work with Donna Karan exclusively because she seems to know what works best when designing a custom look for the young actress.

Her black-and-gold backless Donna Karan Atelier gown which drapes beautifully and has a breathtaking train, was simply accessorized with H.Stern jewels to allow the gown to do all the talking.

I think the word “wow” simply sums things up here.

Lea Michele In Diane von Furstenberg – 2012 Met Gala

Lea Michele attended the 2012 Met Gala in New York City on Monday night.

The ‘Glee’ actress put the best diva foot forward wearing a navy blue Diane von Furstenberg sequined gown with a fringed necklace.

Never one to shy away from showing some skin on the red carpet, Lea flashed a little leg with a thigh-high slit, as well as a revealing neckline.

A Diane von Furstenberg ‘Tonda Stingray’ clutch, Christian Louboutin shoes and Lorraine Schwartz earrings accessorize look.

This is a great look for Lea. I think her try hard days on the red carpet might be finally behind her. I have to give her credit for at least having enough restraint to not pull a full-on ‘Angelina’ on the red carpet with that slit.
