Victoria Justice In McQ Alexander McQueen – 2012 Met Gala

Victoria Justice became the first person to wear a look from the McQ Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 collection stateside.

The young actress looked very pretty wearing the floral embroidered tulle bustier dress with a velvet embroidered tulle body we all wanted to see on the red carpet to the 2012 Met Gala in New York City on Monday evening.

Her dress was accented with a velvet chain belt and teamed with an Alexander McQueen black-leather and gold-studded knuckle box clutch.

I love that she took the look down the sweet road and didn’t try to make it look too edgy.

Velvet pumps with gold platforms and sweet-pink lips completed her look.

    I’m sorry, but why is she at the Met Gala in the first place? She’s a Nickelodeon actress, for goodness’ sake…

    Oh well. I agree that she was the wrong person to wear this dress. She just looks borderline childish in it, and in my opinion she should have swept her hair up in a loose updo, if nothing else. I do love the purple pumps though — prefer them to the runway shoes

    eh, nope.

    I loooove the dress on the runway! I can’t believe it.

    As far as Victoria’s version, it washes her out. It would be better if she wore her hair up.

    I loooove this dress (and the whole collection) and I think Victoria looks awesome in it. Not loving the hair, it is a bit flat but overall this is a great look

    Considering the black borders, I feel that edginess is needed to make this look work. Now it just looks like she rolled around on the top of someone’s casket at a funeral.

    No, dear.

    I Love the colors of this dress. She looks stunning. Does anyone else wish she had put her hair up in a ponytail?

      Yes, but she looks beautifull nonetheless.

    Very cute, well-accessorized look. I would have preferred, as DivaDebbi said, for Emma Stone to wear this, but Victoria does look great. She pulls it off well!

    i think she totally rocked this look, and it worked well with her. one of my favorites of the night <3

    Great! Cute and edgy at the same time. One of my favourites too

    Wow i love this look on her its so different than the runway and i think she really made it her own.

  12. Stephanie May 8, 2012 at 9:13 pm #

    I’m so glad she chose interesting shoes to match the dress. A+ from me! She looks perfectly youthful!

  13. Amy May 8, 2012 at 6:43 pm #

    I was ready to hate it but I actually like it a lot. I think the dress is appropriate for a young girl and belongs to the met Ball . It could have been a little too much for another event. Special mention for the shoes choice

  14. Rebecca Z May 8, 2012 at 4:46 pm #

    She looks adorable, but it is not quite up to the event. this would be a knockout at a different event.

    Victoria Justice did justice to this look.
    I love this look and I love it on Victoria. This was a stunning collection.

    Love the color explosion. Not sure how something so busy and full of varied textures works — but it does. Event and person appropriate. Glad she didn’t wimp out with black pumps, love the purple.

  17. Christine May 8, 2012 at 3:11 pm #

    She looks adorable.

  18. Emi May 8, 2012 at 1:41 pm #

    Lovely! Great look.

  19. Shaina May 8, 2012 at 1:13 pm #

    I love everything about this look. I’m so glad she went for colorful shoes. I don’t feel like the dress was wasted on her since she wore it so perfectly.

    • Quinn May 8, 2012 at 1:41 pm #

      i agree completely!

        completely agreed.

    This is cute and fun and I think it works on her. McQ suits a teenager whereas McQueen would have been too much. I’m not crazy about the shoes with this particular dress, though.

  21. Jones19 May 8, 2012 at 11:46 am #

    This dress is so feels wasted on her.

    • DivaDebbi May 8, 2012 at 12:05 pm #

      +1. the dress is incredible. It needs someone with much more presence to do it justice…Emma comes to mind.

      • EmmaWoodhouse May 8, 2012 at 11:22 pm #

        Yes. Emma should have worn this. I didn’t *hate* her look, but it didn’t do her justice. She would have ROCKED this!

      • Parvati May 9, 2012 at 12:13 pm #

        I agree! Victoria Justice doesn’t look bad in this dress, but someone with more attitude would have pulled this off much better, for sure. Plus, I wish Victoria had worn her hair up with this dress.
