Alexa Chung In Christopher Kane – 2011 Met Gala

Alexa Chung arrived at the 2011 Met Gala wearing something short and sassy.

I love her version of this Christopher Kane Fall 2011 dress.

Her dress with a sheer yoke is covered with paillettes with the signature liquid plastic details.

Alexa also carried a clutch from the same collection.

I don’t hate Alexa’s shoe choice on this occasion based on the colour, but I do wish she’d worn a difffent pair because I feel like I have seen her in these heels a millions times before.

Hilary Rhoda In Alexander McQueen – 2011 Met Gala

There hasn’t been as much Alexander McQueen on the red carpet at the 2011 Met Gala as we expected.

Hilary Rhoda is one of the few wearing McQueen tonight.

She opted for an Alexander McQueen white silk tuxedo coat dress from the Spring 2011 collection.

The all white look was paired with white python booties and a McQueen Britannia clutch from the same collection.

Solange Knowles In Dries Van Noten – 2011 Met Gala

Solange Knowles is usually in her big sister’s shadow, but tonight she was the one who stood out at the 2011 Met Gala.

Solange has more misses than hits, but she hits a high note wearing a Dries Van Noten Fall 2011 gown.

The black, white and green silk gown with geometric beading was teamed with plenty of attitude and a big ‘fro.

Beyonce Knowles In Emilio Pucci – 2011 Met Gala

I was hugely disappointed by Beyonce Knowles who walked the red carpet at the 2011 Met Gala in New York City this evening with her husband Jay-Z.

I had such high hopes for Bey in Emilio Pucci, but this style of dress is circa ‘Dream Girls’ which wasn’t a great period for the singer on the red carpet.

Her custom black mermaid gown with gold embroidery details has a really high neckline.

This high neckline was featured in many looks in the Fall 2011 collection, but I wish the neckline was open on this occasion.

I hoped this would be one of my favourites on the night, but it turned out to be my least favourite.

It might be a custom Pucci design, but it has Tina Knowles written all over it.

Leighton Meester In Louis Vuitton – 2011 Met Gala

Leighton Meester opted for a sexy LBD on the red carpet tonight at the 2011 Met Gala in New York City this evening.

Her Louis Vuitton strapless dress with cut-out and button details was paired with a black clutch and black shoes from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2011 collection.

I love the sleek back ponytail which allows us to see her Cathy Waterman earrings.

I would’ve preferred sandals to strappy booties, but Leighton always opted for something a bit different at this event.
