Costume Institute Gala 2012

The 2012 Costume Institute Gala took place at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on 5th avenue Monday night. This year’s event honored Schiaparelli and Prada in an evening called “Impossible Conversations.” For our earlier post about Schiaparelli please click here.

There were some beautiful gowns, and there were some absolutely strange looking gowns. Although we were very tempted to share the hilarious gowns that made us think "what were they thinking?", we decided to post the more modest looks from the Gala. :-)

The trend at the event of the year included lots of golds, whites, reds with prints, black masculine tuxes, and strange looking outfits that were probably a sad ode to Schiaparelli's surreal sense of style.

Ok, we'll start out with an interesting one, just for fun!

A fashion gala would not be complete without "the devil wears Prada" (aka Anna Wintour), right?

Well, in this case it's more like the devil versus Prada. What is Miuccia Prada wearing?! (seriously, maybe she shouldn't promote her own brand because it looks hazardous). LOL! Okay we said we were not going to be bashing anyone but it was impossible to pass without a comment.

Anna's dress is glamourous. Did you see those muscles. Wow, Anna! Are you a boot camp fan too? We'll have to give you credit, for a woman who has a chaotic lifestyle in fashion, it's rare to see such muscular arms. Miuccia, enough said!

Alright, that was the funy part. Now we're moving on to prettier sights. :-)

Karolina Kurkova in Rachel Zoe
(Ooh la la, look how modesty adds elegance to a woman. We Like!)
Bianca Brandoling D'adda in Dolce & Gabbana
(Isn't this a mere version of Madonna's Super Bowl outfit? Just saying!)
Lilly Collins in Valentino
(Lilly looks like she came out of a fairy tale. We love the organza)
Tory Burch in Tory Burch in Tory Burch in Tory Burch
(LOL! WE just kept going for fun. We like the red leaves on the white. Tory looks so sweet like a little girl :-)
Sarah Jessica Parker in Valentino
(Did she just get off the film set of the Little House on the Prairie? She's missing the hat! We're not too crazy about flower print dresses but it's modest, we guess!)
Cameron Diaz in Stella McCartney
(ok, she's covered, we'll give her credit for that, but we definitely think this dress does not compliment Cameron's body. She looks older, and heavier. Wouldn't you agree?)
Rosie Huntington in Burberry
(This is a Burberry print we have not seen. Interesting!)

Well that's all folks! Hope you've enjoyed our coverage of the most dressed :-)!

Okay wait, we have one last surprise. Which family should Mary Kate Olsen be a member of? The Adams Family (*snap, snap*)
