Hits & Misses at the 2011 MET Gala

One of the most star-studded events last week was the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. All of Hollywood’s elite were in attendance and showing off their costumes gowns. The night was hosted by the one and only Oprah Winfrey along with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

The red carpet was filled with A-listers looking magnificent in their designer gowns, often accompanied with the designer themselves. After looking at most of the night’s looks it makes me wonder if the stars  wearing them actually love what they are wearing. For sure, they are uncomfortable such as Beyonce’s skin-tight gown that didn’t leave her enough breathing room to walk up the stairs – she had to be carried by 2 men!

There were a lot of hits and misses of the night that I want to share with you. Tell me what you think.

Ashley Greene, Diane Kruger & Madonna

The Hits:

Twilight star Ashley Greene who is not normally someone I would pick out from the red carpet but she looked so elegant in Donna Karen. Plus, her cuff bracelet is gorgeous!

Diana Kruger was simple and sophisticated in Jason Wu – probably my favorite look of something I would actually wear.

Madonna who is often seen in not-appropriate-for-her-age black attire opted for a blue silk Stella McCartney dress that hugged her body in a classy way. I was quite impressed with her mature look and love her floral jewelry pieces.

Miranda Karr, Serena Williams, Naomi Campbell

The Misses:

These particular women went wrong in white.

Beautiful Miranda Karr recenlty married cutie Orlando Bloom but at the gala she looked like she was wearing Tinkerbell’s wedding dress.

One of these things just doesn’t belong here…Serene Williams does not have any fashion sense with this ensemble. It seems she was channeling the Royal Wedding with her choice of headpiece and the dress is just a mess.

Naomi Campbell should know better being a supermodel to show up wearing something like this.

What did you think of the red carpet looks at the MET Gala?

    I totally agree. Those misses are for sure complete wrongs in anybody’s book, well I guess except those that wore them. How could their publicist allow them to go out like that. LOL Someone should have told them something. And Serena…she knows her body type is not one to be hide beneath all that…whatever it is! wow!
