Belles of the Ball

Those spectacular stairs, those fabulous frocks, the countless celebrities…There is nothing quite like the Met Costume Gala. Largely seen as one of, if not the, most fashionable red carpet of the year, looks from the event can make or break one’s reputation in the fashion world. A-listers came out in the masses to celebrate this year’s honorees, Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli. Gold was the big color trend of the night, with Jessica Alba glowing in a one shoulder column gown by Michael Kors, Scarlett Johansson shining in curve hugging Dolce Gabbana and the evening’s co-chair, Carey Mulligan, looking radiant in sequins by Prada.

Another trend was the peplum waist as rocked so perfectly by Sofia Vergara in Marchesa, Emma Roberts in Escada, Elizabeth Banks in Mary Katrantzou and Solange Knowles in Rachel Roy.

And as a new mom myself, I just have to give a shout out to Beyonce in a peek-a-boo Givenchy Haute Couture gown. Can you believe that post-baby bod?!
