Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art continued...

Kate Bosworth was one of the very few who chose to wear a shorter dress to the event. She made up for the lack of length with vibrant sequins, block coloured shoes and creative make-up.

I'm always excited to see what Tilda Swinton will rock out in, but i'm not feeling this look. I did like the lace that graced the Prada catwalks, but on Tilda the appeal is some how lost. The Prada lace dress is ok, even though it sits at an awkward length on Swinton, but i like how she always seems to play up her red hair with accessories & make-up that highlight it even more.

Naomi Watts posed on the red carpet in a very red carpet cliche. Long flowing gown, 40's quiff & curl and red lips to compliment the white. She did look very beautiful, but i find it funny how all these celebrities can only associate Star logos with Super Heros hmm...
M&M-Mischa Barton and Margherita Missoni looked like they had fun at the event and also with their outfits. So that deserves credit.

Kate Moss looked FABULOUS! Stella Stella Stella McCartney!! It's never a good idea to wear satin with dozens of flashing lights on you, its going to make you look much larger than you really are, especially when you only gave birth a mere 2 months ago. Love the colour and the matching pumps as well.


Janet Jackson is one of the biggest yo-yo dieters in the world and on this night her figure was good enough to pull of the white Versace dress. I don't care that Donatella Versace has had heaps of plastic surgery because her figure is looking damn HOT! Allegra Versace was modestly dressed in lovely lilac, but it wasn't enough to cover her dainty bones. Her face is looking a lot healthier and more beautiful.

All in all, the Costume Institute Gala brought out the many stylish people, with many looking good, but more effort could have been made to play up the Superheros:Fashion&Fantasy theme, i'm sure the $5000-a-day stylist could have come up with something that is both beautiful, creative and a little risky.

Agree, Allegra looks healthier now. I hope she gets even more healthier because she's such a beautiful girl!

Allegra looks so floaty and beautiful. I really like Bosworth's shoes, but that's kind of it. People looked so pretty but so boring...
