Style Inspiration: Met Gala 2012

Ahhh, how I love the Met Gala - every year we get to see some amazing and beautiful dresses on Hollywood's most gorgeous stars.  There were a lot of great looks to choose from so it was hard to narrow it down, but I wanted to share my favorite looks with you! Let me know which is your favorite in the comments below.

Dianna Agron in Carolina Herrera. This is my favorite dress by far - everything is perfect from the color to the ruffles to the belt..I love it all! I think her retro waves, classic makeup and minimal jewelry compliment the dress perfectly.

Kristen Wiig in Stella McCartney. I am obsessed with the feminine lace and length of this dress and the color is perfect on her. The neutral clutch and shoes keep the focus on the dress, not the accessories.

Gwyneth Paltrow in Prada. She definitely took a risk by going short, but I think it paid off! I love the side view of this dress - the pocket details are amazing and the hi-lo hem suits her really well. Her shoes are just to die for...I want them!!

Diane Kruger in Prada. I love the deep purple and the beautiful feather details on this dress. I like that she kept her hair, makeup and jewelry simple to balance out the drama of the bottom of the dress. Her clutch adds just the right amount of color and sparkle!

Amber Heard in Zac Posen. Wow - Amber really looked stunning last night. She totally evokes Old Hollywood glamour and reminds me of Marilyn Monroe in this dress! The color is absolutely perfect for her and she pulls off that bustle really well!

Leighton Meester in Marchesa. I know that people will disagree with me here, but I love this Marchesa dress on Leighton. She looks super feminine and it really accentuates her curves well and is so flattering on her body. I do wish her makeup was a bit lighter, but overall I really like this look!

Emma Stone in Lanvin. How cute is this dress? I'm glad that Emma picked something young and fun that matches her personality (and age)! The color is great on her and I love her simple updo.

Jessica Alba in Michael Kors. I'm pretty sure Jessica would look gorgeous in a potato sack, but this gold dress really compliments her skin tone and hair and perfectly flatters her figure. Flawless!

Camilla Belle in Ralph Lauren. This silver dress is absolutely stunning on Camilla, and she really let it shine with minimal jewelry and a neat updo. Her body could not look better - I would definitely wear this if I lookd like her!!

Amy Adams in Giambattista Valli. The words simple, elegant and classy definitely describe this dress on Amy. I like that she kept her hair down and swept to one side and the red lip adds a nice pop of color. I'm totally lusting over that belt!


  1. I have a Met Gala post coming as well! I love jewel tones of Dianna Agron and Diane Kruger's dresses, the regal gold of Leighton and Jessica Alba and of course, the ethereal beauty of Camilla Belle. Great picks!

  2. Gwen always does it for me. Love your blog! I'll be reading xo.

  3. My favorite would have to be Amber's dress. It's so glamorous and classic. I always loved the old Hollywood outfits and it really does reminds me of Marilyn Monroe (my female idol). I would totally try it out. Great choices :)
