Too many beautiful women appeared at the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Met Gala 2011 with plain gowns, plain hair, plain bleh. An event known for being one of the most anticipated fashion events of the year, celebrities like Naomi Watts, Isla Fisher, and Kristin Bell, though all looking very pretty, failed to shine. You’re honoring Alexander McQueen!
But some were amazing.
I know this Chanel gown may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but only a girl like Blake can pull off a dress that shows no leg or cleavage, and has too much fabric at all the wrong places, and still look fantastically sexy. She took a risk and owned it.
And my personal favorite, Diane Kruger.
I’m not really a Diane fan, I don’t really get the hype, but even I have to say she looked stunning in this Jason Wu gown. Sexy but subtle, with a little bit of old Hollywood glamour and a lot of leg, she really proved how style savvy she is.
And then there were some fashion disasters, such as Michelle Williams (who looked very Golden Globes 2011), and Christina Hendricks (below). What was she thinking?!
