The 2012 Costume Institute Gala - The Met's Gala

Fashion at the Mets Gala always gets me very excited to see who's going to wear what. This is the time to go wild and make heads turn or the time to look completely drop dead glorious! {Either way, you know everyone's been dieting for weeks for this event!} After going through so many pictures from the gala, I have a feeling rich dark pouts are going to make a come back this fall!

My Top Picks of the night

 {Left: Ashley Greene in Donna Karan Atelier -
Heavenly! Simple hair & make up to give her the angelic look}
{Right: Camilla Belle in Ralph Lauren - Old Hollywood Glam with dark lips}

{Left: Emily Blunt in Calvin Klein Collection - To simple for the Mets, yes but you can't
deny that she looks amazing in that dress! The colour & cut is perfect for her.}
{Right: Farida Khelfa in vintage Schiaparelli - I don't know why I love this dress but I just do!}

 {Left: Emma Stone in Lanvin - She always go against the grain and ALWAYS looks amazing!}
{Right: Kirsten Dunst Rodarte - Unexpected but pleasantly surprised}

{Left: Jessica Stam in Dior - Such a powerful gown}
{Right: Karlie Kloss in Jason Wu - Lace dress with a sheer overlay, beautiful! May I have one Mr Wu?}

 The Wild Cards

{Left: Carey Mulligan in Prada - A very bold dress for a small frame 
but she had to stand out on this important night}
{Right: Chloë Sevigny in Miu Miu - Odd choice but it works}

{Left: Coco Rocha in vintage Givenchy - Bold choice, love the pink hair, she never looks bad}
{Right: Christina Ricci in Thakoon Panichgul - I love the shape of this dress and
overall appearance but Miss Ricci isn't tall enough to carry this look}

The Ugly

{Left: Amber Heard in Zac Posen - The material is too thick and the
contouring lines seem out of place around her chest & waist}
{Right: Beyoncé Knowles in Givenchy Haute Couture - She may be
"People's most beautiful woman" this year... But not in that dress!}

 {Left: Elizabeth Banks in Mary Katrantzou - The designer seems just as confused as I am!}
{Right: Jessica Biel in Prada - She looks like she's attending a wedding
not the Met, also the hemline should have been taken up at least 4 inches}

{Left: Kristen Stewart in Balenciaga - I don't even know where to start! Wrong on so many levels}
{Right: Sarah Jessica Parker in Valentino Haute Couture - So that's where my mom's curtains went!}

This Fall's makeup trend: Dark lips
