The 2012 Met Ball – The Good and The Bad

On Monday night Hollywood and Fashion royalty came together for the annual Vogue Met Ball.  The evening celebrated a new fashion exhibit that compares and contrasts the designs of two Italian women: Miuccia Prada and the late Elsa Schiaparelli.

If there is a Red Carpet to go big on, this is it.

Let’s get to the good first:

Awesome Old Hollywood – Milla Jovovoich in Prada

The Best Bold Color – Solange Knowles (and Rachel Roy) in Rachel Roy

Best Tribute – Coca Rocha in Elizabeth Taylor’s Givenchy

The Most Fiercely Fabulous – Rihanna in Tom Ford

The winners in the “too much” category:

Too Short or Too Long – Jessica Biel in Prada

Too Old – Cameron Diaz in Stella McCartney

Too Much Hunger Games – Elizabeth Banks in Mary Katrantzou

Too Much Beyonce (even for Beyonce?) – Beyonce in Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci
