How To Wear A Lobster Dress aka The Met Gala 2012

Fashion and celebrity pictures from the 2012 Met Ball held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York last night. Every year, it seems, the bar raises to make a splashy entrance.

There are loads more pictures of the Met Ball to see. So many that blinded my eyes and made me cringe. I’m all for drama, but what the they heck was Florence Welch wearing? I didn’t like it on the McQueen runway, and I didn’t like it on the red carpet. And poor Elizabeth Banks in the Mary Katrantzou. I hate to point this out, but it was awful. Maybe removing the capelet off would have helped, but I’m not sure.

Who were your favorites and your picks for fashion gone awry?

    Great blog! I missed a couple of these. I like Kate Blanchett’s black gown the best of all. Sorry…I can’t remember who designed it. I loved Carrie Mulligan’s tea length metallic Prada. It is gorgeous! Beyonce……it was nervy, showy and only because she wore it, I thought it was amazing. Any on else would be laughable in it. Fun column.

  2. Oooh, I’m loving the Calvin Klein dresses…the yellow one isn’t too shabby either! A lobster dress? Hmm….

    • Me too, the simplicity of those dresses is the mastery. Emily Blunt looks beautiful and so sophisticated. Only AW could wear a lobster (and a fur capelet) and be taken completely seriously.

  3. I love Emma Stone in the Lanvin, but I adore her so she can do no wrong! If I had to pick one for myself it would be the Calvin Klein. She wears it well, but the Vaccarello looks like it went through the paper shredder!

    Fun post!

  4. Emily Blunt looks gorgeous on that dress! I am jealous with her for having that great and sexy body.. urggg! :)
