2012 Met Gala – Round Up Part VI

I can see the finish line, as we’re almost approaching the end of the fashionable 2012 Met Gala round up and review. And I don’t know about you, but I loved every little moment of it with all the good, the bad and the A-mazing. Another great year.

2012-Met-Gala---06Diane Kruger showcased her love for couture and risk-taking last night, as she grabbed everyone’s attention with her purple loose-fitting silk chiffon Prada gown, that featured a V neckline and an ostrich feathered hemline. The iconic actress styled her romantic appearance with a gold necklace with purple stones, a gold arm bracelet and a pink embellished clutch. Delicate make up and long, straight tresses provided the finishing touches.

Marion Cotillard combined her adorable playfulness with the event required elegance by donning a Christian Dior gown. The French design consisting of a shimmering black sleeveless bodice and a purple sheer structured bottom with delicate accents was paired with Christian Dior shoes and clutch, plus Chopard jewelry. Marion finished her look with a chic up do and soft pink lips.

Beyonce Knowles had planned a showstopping entrance for the 2012 Met Gala, as she walked the Red Carpet with pure confidence in a dramatic Givenchy Couture black lace gown, with a black and purple train of feathers. The sheer bodice that left little to the imagination, was carefully embellished with sparkling black sequins placed in all the right places. With such a statement piece for a dress, Beyonce didn’t need to accessorize at all, playing it smart with only a sleek ponytail and a coral lipstick.

2012 Met Gala – Round Up Part V

Going through last night’s pictures one more time this morning, might have changed my perspective on some of the gowns that caught my eye at first glance, whilst other dresses grew on me slowly but surely.

Carey Mulligan paid an homage to Prada, by wearing her design during the big night that set Carey co-chair for the 2012 Met Gala, alongside designer Miuccia Prada and US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. The gold and silver toned fish-scale halterneck dress embellished with paillettes was paired with Prada satin pumps. A chic up do, smokey eyes and nude lips styled Carey”s dazzling appearance.

Nina Dobrev secured herself a well deserved spot on the best dressed of the night list, when she decided to step out in this sumptuous Donna Karan Atelier one shoulder silver and black custom gown, that featured a long dreamy train and a chic open back with draping details. The beautiful actress accessorized her heavy gown with Jimmy Choo heels and H. Stern jewelry. A classic up do and flawless make up made for a memorable appearance.

Rihanna went for another black moment on the Red Carpet, when she chose this bold, tight, crocodile skin applique gown wearing the signature of designer Tom Ford. Riri styled the long sleeved dress with simple black pumps, minimal jewelry and ultra long black nails. Her signature make up and a funky hair do added up to the sultry look.

Leighton Meester – The Woman Dress Screening

On February 14, Leighton Meester attended The Woman Dress Screening, directed by Giada Colagrande, in New York City, which is the third part of the Miu Miu’s The Women’s Tale, a series of short films, exploring the feminine love affair with Miu Miu.

For the special occasion, the Gossip Girl actress opted for a modified version, of a Prada Spring 2012 look.

Comparing it with the original design, Leighton’s modified version of the dress, showcased a rather minimal print, placed on both sides of the dress, a deeper V-line and a fresh lemony color for the pleated skirt. The darling retro look, was accessorized by a pair of pointy nude pumps, a gold David Yurman Confetti 5-Row bracelet and a red Prada Mini Half-Flap Crossbody bag.

Red hot lips, plus a chic up-do complemented the look. I liked it a lot.

That same evening, Miu Miu launched their new Culte Sunglasses Collection, glasses with pentagonal-shaped frames,a brushed gold finish and dark brown lenses. Leighton took the opportunity to try some on, Vogue style, revealing her also amazingly beautiful David Yurman Albion ring.

Taylor Swift – 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards

This weekend was filled with big events, as both the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards and the 2012 BAFTA Awards, took place on Sunday. Luckily for my tight schedule, but unluckily for my high set expectations, the Red Carpet at the BAFTAS, was more like a huge disappointment, as one single look stood out for me the entire night, but more on that later.

The story was totally different at the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards, where the ladies really did their best to impress. The first one to caught my eye, was the lovely Taylor Swift, as she shined in a Zuhair Murad Fall 2011 Couture gown, much like the ones she loves to wear at these type of events.

The high-neck nude mermaid gown, displayed an intricate design of gold and rose-gold beading, hand-embroidered on silk. Paired with Prada Metallic Leather Criss-Cross Platform sandals, the gown looked absolutely stunning on Taylor.

To match the Far East influences on her dress, Taylor opted for a sleek high bun, neutral make up in bronze shades and delicate gold jewelry.

Complementing the winning look, Taylor received two Grammy Awards on the big night, so congratulations are in order for both wins.

Freida Pinto – 2012 Golden Globe Awards

Lots of beautiful dresses already posted and lots of beautiful dresses laying ahead, too bad the clock is ticking and time passes by so fast. But less words, more looks and keeping up with the blues, our next Red Carpet moment includes Freida Pinto, donning a Custom Prada gown at yesterday’s 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

The teal Prada peacock ball gown was a fashion risk that had all eyes on the lovely Miss Pinto, whilst being paired with a Chopard Red Carpet diamond lattice necklace and a Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit clutch.

A bouffant half-up, half-down ‘do, smokey eyes and a nude lip color for an overall glamorous look.

I don’t know how you feel about this look, but I liked it a lot ( I just wish she didn’t wore the necklace).

Taylor Swift – Red Hot In Oscar de la Renta

Oscar de la Renta showcased such an amazing collection at this fall’s New York Fashion Week for Spring 2012, that I was very excited to see how most of the looks will turn on the Red Carpet.

If last month Nicki Minaj donned an amazing gown from the same collection at the 2011 American Music Awards, this week Taylor Swift attended the Billboard’s Women in Music event at Capitale, in New York City, looking elegant in a red ODLR tulle dress.

Leaving behind the sparkly gowns and the curly hair-styles, Taylor looked fresh and feminine in this form-fitting red-belted dress that she chose to pair with nude Prada pumps.

Red Hot lips and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry complemented her ladylike appearance. I have got to mention the hair as the country pop singer switched to a super straight, front bangs, new and shiny hairdo.
