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.

Ashley Greene In Marchesa - 2013 Met Gala

Despite being surprised by Ashley Greene’s choice of designer at the 2013 Met Gala on Monday night, I thought her look perfectly suited the punk mood.

Upon seeing Ashley’s name on the attendees list, I was expecting a so-so blush gown.

However, even though she strode on the side of something very feminine, her Marchesa Fall 2013 voluminous, black and gold-embroidered gown was styled with vampy makeup, a slightly messy updo and a dark nail polish.

Her gown was kept in focus with Harry Winston earrings and a clutch added to the mix.

Heidi Klum In Marchesa - 2013 Met Gala

Heidi Klum looked her usual stunning self in Marchesa on the Met Gala‘s red carpet.

It’s no surprise, but the former supermodel actually shows up the runway model in this structural white and silver gown from Marchesa’s Fall 2013 collection. Having some curves really bring this gown to life.

I really don’t think anyone call pull off the tightly fastened updo better than Heidi, and she proved my point tonight. Most people look better with a slightly softer frame around their face, but with Heidi’s bone structure, she doesn’t need her hair’s help!

This whole look is decidedly ‘un-punk,’ and I’m a little disappointed that Heidi didn’t ‘go for it’, since she’s no shrinking violet when it comes to red carpet risks.

She looks gorgeous, but I wish she’d saved this look for a different event and did something over-the-top tonight.

Olivia Munn In Marchesa - 2013 White House Correspondents' Association DinnerAfter bringing a shot of sunny yellow to the Time 100 Gala, Olivia Munn walked a darker line at the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, hosted last night at the Washington Hilton in Washington, D.C.

‘The Newsroom’ actress played her own political game here, appealing to two sides of fashion—the refined and the razzle-dazzle—with her Marchesa design.

On the one hand, this was just a simple black dress. On the other, the elaborately embellished bib collar brought a bolt of gleam to the otherwise plain-Jane gown.

With the waterfall of sparkle, Olivia didn’t need a glut of accessories.

She polished off the look with a Marchesa clutch and a simple drop earring, paired with a sleek top-knot and bronze glow.

Too much or just enough?

Maika Monroe In Marchesa - 'At Any Price' LA Premiere

Maika Monroe attended the premiere of her film ‘At Any Price’ at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

The actress wore a Marchesa gown from the Fall 2012 collection.

The bi-length hem and cap-sleeves make this gown fun and youthful–appropriate for the 18-year-old actress, and I love that the fabric on Maika appears to be nude, rather than the gold on the model–it looks beautiful against her skin!

I also applaud Maika for going with a nude lip versus a rep lip, which I think many women might have gone for to try and match the dress’s gorgeous embroidery. The subtle lip is much more effortless, and the red carpet new-comer looks fresh and fun.
