The MET Costume Institute Gala is arguably one of the most anticipated nights in fashion. This is the one time of year, next to the Oscars, where stars have the opportunity to dress up in dramatic, over-the-top gowns and be praised for it.
Light & Whimsical
Light and whimsical was by far the biggest trend at the Gala. Stars opted for pale colors and soft, light fabrics, which gave them a fanciful, but dramatic look during the evening.
All that Glitters is Gold…and Black
Black and gold always make for an ornate combination. One of the biggest show-stoppers of the night was Beyonce, who didn’t disappoint in a skin-tight Pucci gown.
It seems that soome stars had no problem playing peek-a-book on the red carpet. Rihanna looked stunning in a sheer black lace dress by Stella McCartney, but I was left a bit perplexed by Christina Ricci’s Zac Posen gown.
It’s very hard to find a dress with floral patterns that will give off that special “wow” factor at an event like this. These dresses below are a good example of this. They are perfect to wear to your Easter family gathering (see Easter fashion tips), but don’t seem quite right for this kind of lavish red carpet event.
