Fashion’s Great Event: Met Gala 2012 Celebrity Red Carpet Event
How can we not mention, what many in the fashion world call the greatest red carpet event ever? After all, we are in the carpet business aren’t we?
The Met Gala of 2012, considered the fashion world’s biggest event of the year, took place in May at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Editor-in-Chief of U.S.Vogue, Anna Wintour, hosted the annual ball, where celebrities and fashion designers came together in a night that some call the Oscar’s of the east coast.
The gala event kicked off this years Costume Institute exhibit, “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations,” based on an imagined conversation between the two fashion designers.
Many of the outfits that appeared on the red carpet (no, it was not an antique carpet!) looked as though they belonged in the museum themselves. The gowns worn were not merely fancy dresses, they were works of art that represented the designers behind the label. Some were pretty and some were pretty outrageous. Here are just a few that we wanted to share with our readers:
Emma Stone looked beautiful and radiant in a bright red Lanvin (short) dress. While red dresses usually bleed into the background on a red carpet, this dress stood out because of its length.
January Jones, who plays the first Mrs. Don Draper on the TV series Mad Men, wore a bold yellow structural dress (which featured a peplum at the waist as wellas black accents on the bodice) by Atleir Versace.
Jessica Pare, who plays Megan Draper ( the second Mrs. Don Draper) on Mad Men, looked absolutely stunning, repeat stunning, in a shimmery gold L’Wren Scott gown, that stood out against the red carpet and her co-star.
Beyonce, making a fashionably late and dramatic entrance(she was one of the last celebrities to arrive on the red carpet) wore a showstopping see-through lace and feathered gown from French designer Givenchy, that truly was a work of art.
