Met Gala 2011 - my faves & fails!

Hey girlies!

The Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala is one of the most fashionable nights in the calendar, and all the Hollywood A-listers were out in their gladrags! Here's my top 10 faves & fails!


Ashley Greene

The Twilight actress looks stunning in this cream Donna Karen number. Her darker locks compliment her milky skintone perfectly and her earrings match the sequin embellishment on the dress. Love :)

Diane Kruger

The Inglorious Basterds actress channels old-school Hollywood glamour in this two-toned Jason Wu dress. Love the flash of leg, too... Very risqué!

Emma Roberts

Julia Roberts' niece looks effortlessly chic in this Michael Kors cut-out number. I can't say it's something I'd be able to pull off, but Emma wows in it! Love the Marilyn Monroe inspired locks and crimson nails. It just proves that sometimes, less is more!

Eva Mendes

Does this woman ever put a foot wrong in the style stakes? She looks angelic in this navy blue
Stella McCartney pleated dress. The belt and up-do go perfectly as well!

Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady

Could you find a hotter couple?
Supermodel Gisele looks jaw-dropping in this tomato red Alexander McQueen dress, while her husband looks dashing in
Tom Ford. Just think of the babies!

Ginnifer Goodwin

I love the colour of this Topshop dress on Big Love actress Ginnifer. Another one to rock the cut-out look on the red carpet, she looks wonderfully eccentric!

Lea Michele

The Glee actress opted for this simple blood orange Escada dress for the event. I think she looks beautiful, especially with her dark brown locks and golden tan.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

I literally don't think anyone else in the world could pull off this pink satin Burberry dress... Maybe Megan Fox but that's about it! Recently named Maxim's hottest woman, I think many will agree after seeing this picture, phwoar!

Salma Hayek

Work those curves! The actress looks amazing in this cream Alexander McQueen dress, proving you don't have to be stick thin to look good on the red carpet.

Sofia Vergara

The Modern Family actress looks stunning in this Carolina Herrera dress! It fits her perfectly, and I love the khaki waist detail. Go Gloria! I mean, Sofia...



I'm generally not a massive fan of the fish tale bottom dress, and it looks like Beyonce is pouring out of this Emilio Pucci number. Sorry, B...

Christina Hendricks

Love her hair and make-up, but the Mad Men actress just doesn't pull off this Carolina Herrera dress. It looks like an odd scaley material, she could have picked something much nicer...

Christina Ricci

The Adams Family actress looks like she's stepped out as her character Wednesday on Halloween in this Zac Posen dress. Again, what's with the fish tale? Amazing figure though.

Elle Fanning

Dakona's younger sister is clearly trying to prove herself in the style stakes, but the Met Gala isn't the right place to do it. The star looks out of place in this Valentino Haute Couture dress on the red carpet.

Kirsten Dunst

Just not flattering at all really - the length, the shape, the shoulders? The Spiderman actress fails to make this Chanel Haute Couture work on the red carpet and looks more suited to milking cows, gasp!

Kristen Stewart

I know the Twilight actress doesn't have a traditional, classic style but I just don't like the pattern or the shape of this Proenza Schouler dress on her. It just completely washes her out, and she looks uncomfortable in it.

Leighton Meester

If this Louis Vuitton dress went down to her ankles then it might work, but the length is just totally unflattering. The Gossip Girl star has worn much better outfits than this!

Lucy Lui

It's the feathers! I'm not a fan of this black Vionett dress on the Charlie's Angels actress.

Mary-Kate Olsen

I wish the Olsen twins wouldn't wear such ridiculous outfits! We already know you're really "into" fashion, you don't need to prove it to us! This Givenchy couture dress looks more suited to a beach party than the Met Gala.


It's the hair! Who wears a fishtail plait on the red carpet, seriously? It makes this Stella McCartney dress look kind of... trashy!

What did you think of the stars' Met Gala dresses?

Let me know!
