Costume Institute Gala

May 12, 2007

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…

My favourite of the night: Jennifer Garner in vintage Haute Couture Valentino. I find this vision of her rather flawless and really striking.

FROM RUNWAY TO RED CARPET

This stunning gown from JPG’s Haute Couture looks really good on the runway. but Camilla Belle’s short frame and minimal accessories can’t pull off the look.

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.

Jennifer Lopez has been wearing Marchesa to most of her major events lately. No doubt that she is lovely in that Marchesa gown from its A/W 07/08 collection ( that is a shorter version of it)

Showing that trends will never fade, Victoria’s Secret model Karolina Kurkova covered herself up with a heavy coat from Roberto Cavalli’s A/W collection exactly a season ago.

Lucy Liu, who made a rare appearance on the red carpet, in a riffled-tailed violet gown by Zac Posen from his A/W 07/08 collection.

A pregnant Naomi Watts, glowing in a dark Zac Posen. The gown with the heavy ruffled bottom set off a good proportion to her burgeoning tummy.

Scarlett Johansson in a bubble mini from Stella McCartney’s A/W 07/08 collection. Kirsten Dunst wore it a few weeks ago for one of her European promotional tour for Spidey 3.

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.
from left: German supermodel Claudia Schiffer in Alberta Ferretti, English waif Kate Moss in her own Topshop creations and Danish supermodel Helena Christensen in Calvin Klein collection.

from unglamourous TV roles to stunning on the red carpet: America Ferrera of Ugly Betty and Ellen Pompeo of Grey’s Anatomy

the Olsens

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 babesPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
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 Misses

Naomi Campbell looks really awful in that mini and Kirsten Dunst must have thought that this is a Halloween party… the baggy Yves Saint Laurent gown had almost drowned her petite figure.

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.
