The Met Ball 2011: Minus the Costume

I get that people like to go all out for the Met Ball. I even get that people may have been going a little extra over-the-top because it was dedicated to the late, ever-so great Alexander McQueen. But this year felt, well, really costume-y. In general, the red-carpeteers ranged from overwrought to pretty safe with very little truly bright spots in-between. I’ve picked my fab five here, but you can see the full mess over at The Cut.

I love everything about this, the shade of green, the accessories and the fact that the dress is from Top Shop. Image by Stephen Lovekin for Getty Images via the Cut.

White! I love Florence and her love for flowing vintage dresses. She looks classic AND unique in this YSL gown. Image by Dimitrios Kambouris for Film Magic via the Cut.

Michelle Williams at the Met Gala 2011

My sweet Michelle decided to put a bird on it! Or really, Miu Miu did, with this lovely, stand-out dress. Black and gold is another favorite combo of mine. Image by Stephen Lovekin for Getty Images via the Cut.

There was a lot of sparkle at the gala this year, and while Ashley Greene's Donna Karan number isn't exactly a groundbreaking look, she does look like a princess going to a ball. Image by Stephen Lovekin for Getty Images via the Cut.
