The Belles of the (Met) Ball

I'm a little late with this, but I am sad to say that the ladies of the 2010 Costume Institute Gala were quite underwhelming to say the least. I know that the new thing is minimalism when it comes to dressing for this kind of event, but for some of the girls it seemed that to them, minimalism just meant laziness. However, I am happy to admit that I thought there were a few that hit it out of the park.

From Left: Zoe Saldana in Calvin Klein, Alexa Chung in 3.1 Phillip Lim, Anne Hathaway in Valentino, Kerry Washington in Thakoon for Gap.

I think Alexa Chung looked amazing. The perfect look for the Met Ball. Zoe Saldana has been photographed all over town lately, and each time looks better than the last. Anne Hathaway, although she played it a little bit safe, looks perfect as always. Finally, Kerry Washington, who hasn't necessarily stood out to me in the past, looked great in her Thakoon design and managed not to blend in to the red carpet which can sometimes be a problem with like-coloured gowns.

Honourable mentions go to Tina Fey in YSL, Diane Kruger in Calvin Klein, Camilla Belle in Jason Wu and Sienna Miller in Pucci.

And to all the rest of you - better luck next year!
