Last Night's Looks: 2012 Met Gala Ball

Hilary Swank looked stunning in a custom Michael Kors scarlett red floorlength gown with a high neck and huge flowing skirt. She added a Michael Kors Barrel Clutch, Michael Kors ankle wrap sandals and gold Fred Leighton jewelry to complete her look. I like how the dress gives her figure such shape without it being too clingy, the fabric really makes it look elegant and adding the hair pulled to the side gives it a really fun edge!

The 2012 Met Ball was held last night (April 7th) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. So many celebrities attended the event and all of them showed their styling prowess walking the red carpet in such a variety of different designers and styles it was almost unbelievable. I've picked my four favourite looks and would love to hear yours in the comments below!

Scarlett Johansson wore a nude off-the-shoulder Dolce and Gabbana gown with embellished bodice detailing and a flowing pale pink tulle skirt. I love the cropped hair style that she's gone for here - it really suits her face shape and with the nude make-up and coral lip, it looks very natural. I also like that she's kept the jewelry and accessories to a minimum - with that amazing jeweled bodice she definately doesn't need them!

Jessica Alba looked stunning in a gold, one-shouldered Michael Kors floor length gown. She almost looks like a goddess with her tiny waist showcased in the ruched dress, paired with the bold red lips and make-up and the chunky Wilfredo Rosado accessories. I'm not sure I particularly like her hair swept to the side that much - I would like to have seen perhaps a messy up do or sleek long ponytail but this side swept hair to me just merges into one with the dress.

Camilla Belle walked the red carpet wearing a Ralph Lauren gown from their Spring 2012 Collection which she paired with Ralph Lauren heels and vintage Ralph Lauren Jewelry. This, to me, is the epitomy of a perfect vintage look - with the art deco like pattern on the dress, the beaded detail and the fact that shes slicked her hair back and gone for a dramatic dark make-up look. She literally looks like she's stepped straight out of the 20's!
