2011 Met Gala Round-Up

Posted by Catherine Kallon

Here is the final round up from the 2011 Met Gala.

Salma Hayek wore a costume Alexander McQueen peach organza rose dress. We have all questioned her McQueen choices in the past, but this type of gown is perfect for her. She accessorized with a McQueen clutch and Gucci jewels.

Margherita Missoni is her own best brand ambassador. She was glowing wearing an ombre Missoni Fall 2011 knit dress with a feathered skirt.

Sofia Vergara wore a Carolina Herrera strapless blossom print faille gown. Like Renee she’s found the perfect designer for her. So refreshing not to see her twins spilling out.

Anna Dello Russo chose a masculine military Alexander McQueen look which included a black duchesse satin tailcoat, white shirt and gold fern embroidered pants.

I love the look, she’s been doing the masculine thing a lot lately, but that Egg on her head is bordering on GaGa terrority. Ridiculous.

Hailee Steinfeld wore a nude Stella McCartney lace embroidered asymmetrical gown with a train which she paired with Nicholas Kirkwood metallic platform sandals. I love the dress, but I’m not too crazy about the hair.

Kerry Washington wore a custom-made Escada pistachio chiffon gown with spaghetti straps and a triangle cut-out at the waist.

From this picture you can just about make out the fine silver bugle beads embellishments on the bodice.

A Swarovski clutch and H. Stern jewels completed her look.

Taylor Swift was effortlessly elegant wearing a J. Mendel gown with a black lace overly and cascading organza layers. You’ll be surprised to not see a single sequin.

She decided to sparkle with Lorraine Schwartz jewels instead.

Lea Michele also wore a custom-made Escada gown with Kimberly McDonald earrings.

The red silk faille gown isn’t one of her most memorable moments. I really dislike the bodice.   Time to get Mr de la Renta back on speed-dial.

Chloe Sevigny opted for a subtle Alexander McQueen dress. I expected something more dramatic from her.

Maggie Q was radiant wearing a Tadashi Shoji Spring 2011 gown. The nude silk chiffon strapless gown with tulle floral details was accented with a satin waistband.

Rosario Dawson wore yet another Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2011 embellished gown.

The black gown was teamed with a DVF clutch Tabitha Simmons heels and Cartier jewels.

Jessica Szohr wore a Topshop Unique black velvet and tinsel bustier dress with Topshop Unique woven tassel wedges. As she doesn’t appear to like the princess ballgown look, this is perfect for her.

Alicia Keys is usually all about Armani, but on this occasion she opted for head-to-toe Givenchy.

Her bustier dress with embroidered with lace and laser cut crocodile details is paired with a matching crocodile tailcoat. The crocodile theme is completed with a matching clutch.

Leelee Sobieski wore a custom-made Vionnet ivory silk crepe de chine dress with a gold leather laser cut leaf belt.

Tamara Mellon wore a white column gown.

Thandie Newton wore a black lace trimmed halter Stella McCartney gown. Both wore Solange Azagury-Partridge jewels.

I wasn’t a fan of this Carolina Herrera dress on the runway, and it’s even worse on Christina Hendricks.

Isla Fisher and Kristen Bell both wore custom Tory Burch gowns.

Kristen wore an antique gold silk lame one shoulder gown.

Isla wore a marine blue sequin gown with a pleated silk organza bustier.

Tory Burch arrived with Kanye West who was wearing a custom Tory Burch tuxedo.

Tory is the only one not wearing her own designs. She opted for a vintage 1970’s black and ivory lace Jean Patou gown with David Webb earrings and her own vintage rings.

Elizabeth Banks wore a shimmering gold sequin Tommy Hilfiger one shoulder gown with a Judith Leiber ‘Figure Eight’ clutch.

Evan Rachel Wood wore a Gucci Première plum silk georgette sleeveless evening gown with plunging neckline and sparkling embroidery details.

Emma Roberts wore a Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2011 white silk crepe column gown with black paillette detail which she teamed with a black crocodile Michael Kors envelope clutch.

I wasn’t a fan of Fergie in this Marchesa platinum embroidered illusion column gown with a flared tulle skirt.

Too bridal for my tastes.
