2011 Met Ball | Red Carpet Recap


Beyonce in Pucci, Ginnifer Goodwin in TopShop, Solange in Dries van Noten, and Amy Poehler in J. Mendel

The last few days have been quite eventful for fashion enthusiasts. The Royal Wedding set off a frenzy for fascinator hats, and Sarah Burton became a household name for the Alexander McQueen wedding dress she designed for Kate Middleton, now Princess Catherine. This week, we’ve got the Costume Institute Gala, also known as the Met Ball, one of the biggest events in the fashion industry.

Florence Welch in YSL, Lucy Liu in Vionnet, and Daphne Guinness in Alexander McQueen

Designers, editors, actresses, singers, models and socialites converged at the Metropolitan Museum of art for the annual event hosted by Vogue editor Anna Wintour. The late Alexander McQueen, whose designs will be on display in the Savage Beauty exhibit at the Met from May 4 – July 31, 2011 was honored at this years gala.

Shalom Harlow in Marchesa, Ashley Greene in Donna Karan, and Rihanna in Stella McCartney

Feathers and trains seemed to be popular themes this year. Florence Welch, Lucy Liu and Daphne Guinness all turned out in feathered creations while Shalom Harlow, Rihanna and Ashley Greene sported gowns with trains.

Janelle Monae in Chanel and Christina Ricci in Zac Posen

My favorite looks of the night came from Janelle Monae and Christina Ricci. Janelle didn’t wear anything ground breaking but for once, she wore something other than her usual pompadour hair-do, white shirt, black pants and spectator shoes. Instead she wore a veiled top hat and pumps. She still had on a white shirt, but this time it had a dramatic collar. Kudos to her for stepping outside of her usual box. Christina Ricci was undoubtedly the most fabulous person at the ball in a fitted, lace Zac Posen gown with a mermaid skirt.

Whose looks did you love and whose did you love to hate from this year’s Met Ball? Inquiring minds want to know.
