The Met Ball Best Dressed

Okay first of all with the Costume Institute highlighting both Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli with this exhibit, I expected a bit more quirk.  I mean both designers are known for their whimsy, artistry and fun.  I really was hoping for someone to bring the pink and I mean the Schiaparelli pink (that blue tinged hot pink that is the stuff of dreams.  That one-more-drop-of-blue-and-it's-almost-purple-pink).  How sad was I, that the only lady who got anywhere close was Julianne Hough(?) - props to her stylist for hopefully, deliberately paying homage to Ms. Schiaparelli.  I was also secretly hoping for some vintage Prada numbers from years past - like maybe an evening gown made from that lipstick print that I covet so from years gone by.  Oh well.  Miuccia should really call me, I have a scary encyclopedic knowledge of Prada stuff from like 1995 until now.  That's 60% of my brain to be honest.  Prada and SpongeBob - it's sad really.  Anyhoo, here's what I liked from last evening:

Karolina Kurkova looking amazing in Rachel Zoe Collection

Ashley Greene in Donna Karan which was a little safe but still stunning

Kristen Wigg in Stella McCartney, I love the color and the length

Angela Lindvall in Prada (psst this is what I was looking for, a bit of that Prada quirk that I adore)

Julianne Hough (with Seacrest) in Carolina Herrera, great dress, perfect color.

Paula Patton in Vera Wang, the color is fab on her

Cate Blanchett in Alexander McQueen

Leslie Bibb in Zac Posen, sure the print is a little "upholstery", but she's so gorgeous it totally looks amazing (I'm loving the coral/orange lips and nails)

Ginnifer Goodwin in Monique Lhuillier the color and cut is perfect on her (that neckline!).  Is her hair looking a little weird lately, I love a pixie cut but this one almost looks like a painted on Ken doll's hair.  Needs some texture maybe?

And I only include Gisele and Tom so I can say (in Brazilian accent) "My husband can't throw the ball and catch the ball." (post Super Bowl rant)

    Must say though, I am all about the knee length, Mad Men looking dress in third pic.

  6. Karolina Kurkova was stunning!!! I didn't know it was Rachel Zoe though... kinda kills it for me :/
