MET Ball 2012 – Best Dressed

1. Diane Kruger in Prada

This dress is absolutely amazing! It is the perfect choice for the MET ball, a night of high fashion and dramatic looks. The whole look is simply perfection – stunning dress, relaxed hair and make up so as not to draw attention away from said dress, a complimentary colour of clutch, and a beautiful, simple but bold necklace to bring it all together. Well done Diane.

2. Solange Knowles in Rachel Roy

Solange is working both the peplum trend and yellow trend in this gorgeous silk dress. The colour is so lovely against her skin tone. I love how the big hair contrasts with the slim silhouette of the dress.

3. Camilla Belle in Ralph Lauren

An example of classic red carpet glamour but with a modern edge given by Camilla’s choice of lipstick. The dress hints at the 20s, a key trend at the minute, and flatters her figure. It isn’t the most fashion forward look, but you can never go wrong with a classic.

4. Emma Stone in Lanvin

I love this dress! It is absolutely adorable and looks so good on Emma. The embellishment work is beautiful and the colour is very complimentary on her. I like the lack of jewellery, but had I been wearing/styling this look, I would have added a dress watch or bold ring, just for a bit more detail.

5. Karlie Kloss in Jason Wu

This look is a winner mostly because of Karlie’s make up. In a sea of dark, gothic lips, her choice of fuschia lipstick stands out in a very good way. I love her lilac eye make up as well. Needless to say, the dress is stunning and she pulls it off very well.

Close but not quite: Cara Delevingne in Burberry

The dress is absolutely beautiful – I always love a full skirt, and the cowl neck is very elegant – however, the gloves let her down. They look out of place to me. I imagine the idea was to juxtapose the tough studded gloves with her ladylike, sophisticated dress, in an effort to make it younger and more fresh but unfortunately she doesn’t quite pull it off. I love her make up and hair though!
