Diane Kruger In Prada – 2012 Met Gala

Diane Kruger was part of the Prada party at the 2012 Met Gala, held in New York on Monday evening.

The German actress opted for another loose-fitting look. This time she wore a Prada purple layered crepe silk chiffon V-necked gown with ostrich feathered hemline.

Her bohemian, romantic look was accessorized with a hot pink embellished clutch and a gold necklace with purple stones.

I didn’t like this at first, but it grew on me as the night wore on.

One thing we can always expect from Diane is a flawless presentation.

Do you like this look, or were you expecting more from Diane?

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.

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.

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.

Carey Mulligan In Prada – 2012 Met Gala

Carey Mulligan, the co-host of this year’s Met Gala, was one of the first to arrive on the red carpet.

The British actress looked sensational wearing a custom two-tone gold-and-silver Prada halter dress covered with paillettes.

Her dress with a pleated detail at the back was styled with satin Prada pumps and a simple updo with a rockabilly twist.

Regular readers know I’m not a fan of mixing metals, but this look ranks in the top five for Carey.

Despite her co-hosting duties, she was radiant and relaxed on the red carpet.

Sultry, smoky eyes and a nude lip colour completed her look.

Do you agree that this is one of Carey’s best ever looks?

Anna Wintour In Prada & Bee Shaffer In Erdem – 2012 Met Gala

As host of the ‘Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations’ Costume Institute Gala, held in New York this evening, Anna Wintour was the first to arrive on the red carpet with her daughter, Bee Shaffer.

Anna surprisingly didn’t wear Chanel this year; instead she opted for a Prada custom-made gown with a gold lobster motif.

Wearing her favourite beaded necklace, and Manolo Blahnik kitten heels, no doubt, the Editor-in-Chief of American Vogue completed her look with a white fur cape.

Bee, who always wears a dramatic gown for this event, didn’t let us down by looking equally beautiful wearing an Erdem Fall 2012 gown.

The blue, black and white gown with embroidered lace had a V-necked line and a beautiful train.

Bee lets her beauty shine through with minimal makeup and stunning chandelier earrings.

What a great way to kick-start proceedings.
