the Met Gala is essentially the superbowl for fashion... the creme de la creme of fashion industry events. every major model, celebrity, and designer hit the red carpet at the Met on the Upper East Side and in the gathering of their fabulousness, they celebrate fashion. this year, we celebrate, mourn, and remember the genius that was Alexander McQueen - as well as look forward into the future of the house with Sarah Burton. it's a bittersweet exhibit at the Met right now... celebrating so much beauty and talent, but mourning the loss of a great fashion pioneer. and last night, the girls brought their best in archival McQueen and more...
Daphne Guinness in McQueen SS 2011
there aren't words for this... Daphne is the ultimate McQueen girl.
Gisele Bundchen in archival McQueen
Naomi Campbell in McQueen AW 2011 (an interpretation of AW 2011, that is), w/ Gisele in archival McQueen

Emma Stone in Lanvin (my favorite of the night! the print is fabulous, her hair is perfect, and the hot pink lips are MAJOR!)

Emma Roberts in Michael Kors - incredibly chic and goddess-looking
