The best and worst of Met Gala 2012

Often referred to as “fashion’s Oscars,” the Costume Institute Gala (Met Gala) held at the New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday night was an opportunity for A-listers to either shine or crash and burn. As usual, there was a plethora of beautiful people in beautiful creations and just as many in god-awful ones. I’ll never get the fascination with going so over the top to the point of ridiculous. What’s wrong with looking classic, beautiful and elegant. If you want an example of someone who does avant-garde right keep you eye on January Jones. She is one of the few women who know just when to stop, so that she looks both unique and gorgeous. What were your favourite outfits of the night?

The best of the night

Shailene Woodley in Christopher Kane (This girl needs to get a stylist, she has been crashing and buring on the red carpet this year)

Kristen Stewart in Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquiere (The dress is bad enough…and then you see the shoes)

Coco Rocha in Givenchy (Seriously???)
