Glitz and Glam: The hot and the not...

Red carpet royalty did their best to impress at the recent NY Met Gala, some hitting the spot and some ..... well...not.
Metallics and lace featured highly among the dresses, as well as many monotone hues and some risking it in garish brights.
Here are some of my best and worst outfits of the evening....
Jessica Alba goes golden Grecian goddess in Michael Kors.

Carey Mulligan in Prada.

Lana Del Rey rocks the chain-mail look in Joseph Altuzarra (not too sure about the cape though).

Camilla Belle in a stunning Ralph Lauren creation.

Scarlett Johansson in Dolce and Gabbana.

Heidi Klum looks as elegant as always in Escada.

I'm in love with model Karolina Kurkova's glitzy gown by Rachel Zoe (I would have ditched the headband though - OTT!)

Sophia Vergara works her hourglass shape in Marchesa.

Rosario Dawson goes for an edgy twist on the traditional gown with this leather Calvin Klein dress.

Gisele in Givenchy

Lea Michelle drops her good girl Glee image in a revealing dress.

And the awards for disastrous dresses go to...
Model Anja Rubik in Anthony Vaccarello - need I say anything about this? No-one wants to see your jutting hip-bones lady!

Kristen Stewart in Balenciaga - Bleurgh!

Alexa Chung looks as though she thought she might get a bit chilly in her dress so decided to put a shirt under it?!

We all know I have an enormous love for Beyonce but she has made it to my badly dressed list...I like the idea of the dress from the top to the knees but she could have chosen underwear that matched her skin tone. I know she's a new mother but I think she's taking this 'Blue' theme on every outfit a bit too far...

And lastly Christina Ricci. I love a good bow, it's a great way to change the look of a dress or make something plain a bit more interesting....BUT not when the bow is pretty much the size of you! Otherwise this Thakoon dress is quite nice.

What do you think? Which dresses would you love to wear?

  1. Felt so let down by Miss Beyonce... I love her but that dress was not good.
    Totally agree about Karolina Kurkova, should have ditched the headband...
    I actually thought Gwyneth Paltrow looked really hot!

  2. I thought she did too - there were so many nice dresses (and not so nice dresses) but unfortunately I couldn't include them all, I thought people might get slightly bored of looking at thousands of dresses! haha. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. Love what Alba is wearing!! Camilla Belle always looks amazing

  4. I know! I think Alba's dress was one of my faves! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Loving Camillas dress, she looks amazing.
