Nicole Richie in Marc Jacobs with Donatella Versace
Jennifer Lopez is wearing Zuhair Murad and looking very much the princess.
Carey Mulligan in Miu Miu. While I love this dress, it's certainly a departure from her usual Red Carpet style.
Claire Danes in custom Burberry
Coco Rocha can be credited with wearing one of THE most beautiful dresses of the night! No information provided on the designer, but the mingled colors and details all add up to impeccable!
Emma Watson in Burberry of course.
Ivanka Trump-while I like the dress overall, I would like it better without the ruffled back.......it looks a bit out of place.
Jessica Schzor-Another stunner!
Mila Kunis is a vision in tulle.
Oscar de la Renta and Oprah Winfrey in custom Oscar de la Renta......magnificent gown.
Bee Shaffer, daughter of Vogue's Anna Wintour, is simply stylish.
Zoe Saldana is lovely in Calvin Klein.
M.I.A. and Zoe Kravitz with Alexander wang and wearing Alexander Wang for Gap. Wow, Zoe is really looking classy and well put together these days......good for her!
Kirsten Dunst in Rodarte for Gap.
Katy Perry made a wonderful choice.....this is a good look for her, even though it is actully illuminated!
Anne Hathaway in Valentino.......she's always a do.
Chanel Iman in Michael Kors, tops my list as one of the best looks of the night!
Chloe Sevigny is truly a vision in Proenza Schouler....this in my opinion, is one of her best looks; right down to the hairdo.
Demi Moore "glows" in this metallic stunner!
Elizabeth Banks-Love the dress!
Emma Roberts in Marni
Emmy Rossum is certainly a do in this colorful dress and equally colorful statement necklace.
Eva Longoria in Marchesa with Georgina Chapman-Both are fabulous!
Gayle King is also fabulous in her choice of dress......love the color.
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale are a stunning couple.
Carolina Herrera and Calvin Klein-I love the dress!
Iman radiates in her slinky Prada number.
Perennial fashion favorite, Jessica Alba chose Sophia Theallet for Gap. A perfect choice!
Jessica Stam-Simple but classic with gold jewelry.
Wow, is that a new James Bond!? Jimmy Fallon is handsome in his white jacket.
Kate Bosworth in Valentino-Lovely!
Maggie Gyllenhaal-Nice choice
Mammie Gummer-looks lovely in Donna Karan
Marion Cotillard appears as though she stepped from the pages of a magazine in this elegant offering from Dior. She is perfect from head to toe.
Thandie Newton is also a stunner in this lovely gown.
Mariska Hargitay is resplendent!
Stella McCartney, Liv Tyler and Kate Hudson wearing Stella McCartney.......I'm loving the whole "draping back" thing!
Tempermental diva though she is, Naomi Campbell always look lovely.
Zoe Kazan and Peter som-another stunning dress....it appears perfectly fitted for her. In my opinion, this is not a good dress choice for someone with an ample bosom.
Sean P. Diddy Combs looks great in his suit, but I guess it would be asking too much to lose his signature sunglasses.
Rachel Zoe-I like the dress, but it looks just a bit overwhelming on her thin frame.
Rene Zelleweger looks gorgeous from head to toe! This is one of the best photographs of her that I've seen in quite some time. Usually her hair is a little outta wack, but this a good night for her. She is wearing Carolina Herrera as she does most often.
Riley Keough in Thakoon for Gap (another one of the best looks of the evening) with Thakoon Panichgul.
I love Mary J. Blige's gown, but as I stated in a post from last week, the hairstyle just doesn't do much for the look.
Jude Law and Sienna Miller both clad in Emilio Pucci.
Actress Viola Davis is a vision in purple.
Taylor Swift in Ralph Lauren
Pharrell Williams certainly "cleans up well!"
When it comes to dressing, the theme of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute gala, “American Woman,” left guests with two options: Be the patriot or promote international relations.
Firmly in the first camp was Diane von Furstenberg, whose frock was literally star spangled. “I am the Statue of Liberty,” she said with pride. Joining her were Taylor Swift and Jessica Biel in Ralph Lauren, Brooke Shields in Michael Kors, Mamie Gummer in Donna Karan and co-hostess Oprah Winfrey in Oscar de la Renta (he may not have been born in the U.S. of A., but he is one of its proudest citizens).
And what’s more American than the humble baseball cap, like the one worn by Marc Jacobs? His choice, however, had nothing to do with patriotism. “I had hair transplants,” he said. (And in another sports moment, Eli Manning and Tom Brady greeted each other with a big hug. So Super Bowl XLII is clearly forgiven.)
The patriotism was enough to make the Europeans in attendance green with envy. “There’s something really relaxed and comfortable about their style,” said Emma Watson in Burberry. “They don’t try too hard.”
“I like their forthrightness,” said Mick Jagger.
“There’s a sense of richness that you have here on so many levels,” said Marion Cotillard in Dior. “You have a good mix of the high and the low.”
Nevertheless, a few of the American women chose to represent our European allies. Kristen Stewart wore Chanel; January Jones, Yves Saint Laurent, and Anne Hathaway, Valentino.
And then there was Katy Perry, who flew the flag for American individuality. Her electric gown came from a shop in France called Cute Circuit and had flashing lights, presumable enough to get her through the evening. “I have backups,” she said. “But I do feel like a terrorist wearing all these batteries.”
