The Ultimate Fashion Fete - The 2011 Metropolitan Costume Institute Gala

Please pardon the interruption from our regularly scheduled "Working Girl Chic Tuesday."  But, there is a fashion emergency!  Last night was the MET Gala in New York City - the one event that is certain to bring out the fashion set in full force. While the Oscars are glamorous, and the Grammys entertaining they really do not hold a stylish candle to the MET gala.  This is where fashion icons take big risks and create moments that we, fashion followers, will remember for years to come.  This year the MET ball celebrates the opening of the "Alexander Mcqueen, Savage Beauty" exhibition and many of the chic attendees chose to wear the late, great designer's iconic work. Here are a few -

Gisele in McQueen

SJP in McQueen - One of my favorite looks at the gala!

Salma Hayek in McQueen
Another trend that continued on the red carpet was beautiful, vibrant COLOR!

Brooklyn Decker in Michael Kors

Diana Agron with Michael Kors - her date for the evening (who also looks a bit like a bodyguard in this pic!)

Jennifer Lopez in Gucci - Another favorite!

Ginnifer Goodwin in Topshop (I know, Topshop....weird, huh?)

Mary Kate Olsen in vintage Givenchy - digging the boho evening look
Other ladies went "Au Naturel" in nude and blush tones.

Taylor Swift in J. Mendel

Liv Tyler in Givenchy Haute Couture

Very preggers Kate Hudson in Stella McCartney

Gwynnie in Stella McCartney - dying over this look.

Dakota Fanning in Valentino

Karl Lagerfeld and Blake Lively in Chanel Haute couture....we haven't yet discussed her newly auburn tresses, do we like?

Trussed up - Some ladies chose some seriously corseted looks.  So very hot, although there's not much room for champagne!

Christina Ricci in Zac Posen

Beyonce in Emilio Pucci

Rumer Willis in Badgley Mischka Couture

Lucy Liu in Vionnet

And then, there is the queen mum of all things stylish and fabulous.....

Anna Wintour in Chanel Haute Couture (with a glimpse of Andre Leon Talley in the background....LOVE!)
