Met Ball 2012 Favourites

Every year at the Met Ball (i.e. the Met Costume Institute Gala) the stars put on elite desginers' most extravagant dresses (well, that goes for some ;)) for the annual opening of the Metropolitan Museum's fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute. 

These are my absolute favourites from this year!

Had to put Marc Jacobs up there - his outfit is absolutely hilarious!! (At least put on black briefs man!)

I think most celebrities' fashion mistakes at these events occur due to the dramatising on trying to be different and essentially the need to be trend setting - it's clear to see that the celebrities who didn't go overboard with their outfits and rather stuck with the often-seen line cuts and lengths looked superb! Whilst others who went over-the-top with colours, materials and shapes only received the attention their outfits deserved (from Fashion Police).
