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.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Valentino Couture – 2012 Met Gala

Sarah Jessica Parker wore the colour of the evening, pink, at the 2012 Met Gala in New York City on Monday night.

It’s rumoured that Anna Wintour requested that all Vogue editors wear pink to the event, and SJP clearly did not miss that memo.

Carrie Bradshaw did contribute to the magazine, after all.

The actress chose Valentino for the event, wearing a long-sleeved silk taffeta floral print gown from the Spring 2012 couture collection.

The gown, which has a vintage feel, was paired with Fred Leighton Victorian gold, pearl, and enamel cuff bracelets, worn over the sleeves.

Voluminous waves and large earrings complete the look.

Emma Stone In Lanvin – 2012 Met Gala

Emma Stone was among those I was most excited to see arrive at the 2012 Met Gala in New York City on Monday evening.

Unfortunately, I was in for a bit of a letdown.

Wearing one of the evening’s rare short dresses, Emma arrived in a custom-made Lanvin creation by Alber Elbaz.

While the bright red satin dress with hand embroidered crystal flowers is undeniably gorgeous, it feels too cutesy on Emma – especially at the Met Gala. This is more of an Elle Fanning look don’t you think?

Emma opted for a ‘90’s updo which was held together with custom-made Lanvin crystal hair pins.

Black pumps, which I dislike, complete the look.

Kate Bosworth In Prada – 2012 Met Gala

Kate Bosworth proved that short dresses can be every bit as dramatic as floor-length ball gowns at the 2012 Met Gala on Monday night.

Wow. I had to fully examine this look from every angle a few times before forming any thoughts.

Final verdict: amazing.

Kate looked truly spectacular in Prada, wearing an ombre bordeaux and navy ostrich feather mini-dress with a daring low-cut back.

An eggplant clutch and strappy two-tone sandals by Prada accessorize the feathery frock.

A severe braided topknot and deep plum lips, one the biggest trends of the evening, finish the dramatic look.

Love it or not, you have to give Kate credit for not playing it safe.

Florence Welch In Alexander McQueen – 2012 Met Gala

There was a lot of fist pumping going on when I saw Florence Welch on the red carpet at the 2012 Met Gala, which took place in New York City on Monday night.

That’s because the British singer wore the exact Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 dress I had selected for her in my Fashion Week review.

This is the first time I have ever gotten it right, so I’m going to cherish this moment.

Florence glided down the red carpet wearing this dandelion embroidered organza tiered dress with matching embellished sandals with an armadillo heel and a classic McQueen clutch.

Now that she has worn a look from my wish list, I can honestly say it’s just as perfect as I imagined it would be.

A braided updo completed her look.
