Costume Institute Gala
The MET Ball is always the most anticipated fashion event of the year, besides the Oscars, you can admire high fashion on red carpet with celebs and models strutting their stuff. Moreover, there’re many many many of them attending this event. I can only manage to show you half the amount of pictures here…
Cameron Diaz in a hot pink Christion Dior tiered satin gown from its Autumn/Winter 07/08 show.
The colour is really bold and different from the rest but I don’t know what’s up with the bright blue earrings & necklaces?
The latest spokesmodel for makeup giant Lancome, Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann, looks a little uncomfortable in this Yves Saint Laurent, which looked really sexy but romantic on its S/S 07′ runway. Besides the fact that the gown’s little bit too frumpy for her svelte figure, she was stepping on it!
This sexy halter with a plunging neckline looks really quite ok on the runway. How did Jessica Simpson manage to make it look so trashy? However , I think that ladies with tanned skin and not-so-fat figure will look good in it.
Brooke Shields aka ex-Tom Cruise rival in Oscar de la Renta. On the runway, it looks really suited for summer and it has a very youthful feel. Maybe it’s because of her age, she doesn’t look good in it and white is not really her kind of colour.
the last ‘off-the-runway’ look, Amanda Peet in a Marc Jacobs satin frock. In the midst of many flowy, shimmery gowns, she daringly donned a simple and short one to the event. However, I think it looks formal enough though, most probably because of the satin fabric and leggings.
the international supermodels
Even though they are all mums and don’t rock the runway anymore, it’s realistic that they attend a fashion event still looking great as they did 10 years ago.

It’s really normal that the budding fashionistas cum Hollywood socialites would attend an event that involves red carpet. They’re still trying to look mature. Ashley looking slightly casual in John Galanos and Mary Kate in feathered floor-lengthed Lilie et Cie with Aliahs belt. What’s with their likings towards indie labels?
the Best-Supporting actresses
besides having the same Oscars Statues, they both have a good sense of fashion too. Cate Blanchett in a metallic Balenciaga halter and Renee Zellweger in Carolina Herrera.
the Prada babes
Claire Danes and Kate Bosworth both in Prada. I do love the fading colours of Claire’s gown but it looks really weird on her but I like Kate’s satin cocktail dress. The silhouette is really pretty.
The People of Fashion
what’s a fashion event without the high powered commanders in the fashion circuit? US Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour in Chanel Haute Couture and ex-Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent designer Tom Ford with French Vogue editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld.
