The Met Gala 2012: The best dressed

It’s been months since we’ve had a huge red carpet event to get excited about, which is why we are always extra-thrilled when the Met Gala comes around. It’s the epitome of glamour, as the finest designers and their celebrity guests walk the red carpet for one of the most prestigious and fabulous events of the year. 

We think the outfit standard this year was higher than ever, thanks to Coco Rocha in Givenchy (not just any Givenchy mind… Elizabeth Taylor’s Givenchy jumpsuit!!!) Nina Dobrev in Donna Karan Atelier (inspired by Gwyn’s in Great Expectations!) Carey Mulligan in Prada… the list really could go on forever.

As expected, there was lots of vintage and hot-off-the-runway Prada making its way down the red carpet, although a whole host of other designers got a look in too, including Carolina Herrera, Tom Ford, Givenchy and so many more.

Diane Kruger, Coco Rocha, Dianna Agron and Emma Stone were among the ladies who brought a splash of colour to the proceedings, while beautiful women such as Lea Michele, Rihanna, Renee Zellweger and Rooney Mara opted for sleek and sexy black numbers. Metallics were also another huge trend of the evening, with Jessica Alba, Carey Mulligan, Nina Dobrev and Lana Del Rey adding some shine and/or sparkle to the event.
