La Mode Best Dressed | MET Gala 2011

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City came alive once again with the annual MET Gala bringing some of the biggest names in fashion and entertainment down it’s red carpet in stunning style. In honor of the amazing fashion genius Alexander McQueen, who solemnly passed away after committing suicide in February of 2010, all the celebs remembered his stunning work and his incredibly described Savage Beauty. No matter what one wore tonight, all the looks were without a doubt portraying some feel of drama and destructive beauty. As always, only the best appear on La Mode Dimitri, and with my acute eye for fashion I’ve selected some of the best dressed which from range fromAlicia Keys and Kanye West to Christina Ricci and Gisele Bundchen.

Janelle Monae in her usual tailored get-up came in on my top charts again, with her chic high necked detail and satin pants.

Rihanna who walked in wearing Stella McCartney looked simple yet stunning.

Wearing one of the most exciting looks of the night was Serena Williams with her bold Oscar de la Renta gown.

Sarah Jessica Parker looked incredibly stunning in her Embellished Alexander McQueen dress.

Salma Hayek looked gorgeous in her McQueen dress.

Arriving with Ricardo Tisci himself ,was none other than Liv Tayler in this couture Givenchy.

Leelee Sobieski wore an incredibly chic Vionnet gown.

I could have stood speechless when I saw Jennifer Hudson’s look because it was simply amazing!  Wearing Vera Wang for the night, she really shined her new size with the hot tubed- top dress.

Gisele Bundchen’s astounding beauty was truly captured with this red hot Alexander McQueen gown, which also showed her wowing height.

Fergie’s look was indeed astonishing with this Marchesa gown that she wore.

Diane Kruger looked great with this thigh high splited Jason Wu dress.

Demi Moore rocked the red carpet with this feathered frock from Prabal Gurung.

Ciara came in high on my list of the best dressed, as she wore an incredible Prabal Gurung gown, which was evidently channeling the grungy beauty of Alexander McQueen.

Dakota Fanning appeared in a beautifully flower-adorned gown by Valentino.

Beyonce looked great in this Emilio Pucci dress, which showed her awesome curves and its dramatic embellishments.

Showing that she has definitely ‘uped’ her style, Taylor Swift goes for an edgier option from J. Mendel’s couture collection.

Ashley Greene looked quite nice in this Donna Karan gown with sequin details.

Alicia Keys who substantially stood out from her husband Swizz Beatz, who by the way looked quite nice, wore a hot Givenchy look which showed it’s destructive beauty with a touch of leather.

Entering the room with mastermind Zac Posen, was Christina Ricci who hands down, wore the best gown of the night.

Chanel’s new face Blake Lively, came in with the one and only Karl Lagerfeld, wearing of course a gown from Chanel.

Coming in at my spot number 2, was the outstanding Jennifer Lopez, who wore Gucci. Her husband looked incredible among the men as well.

I can assure you that I honestly fainted when I saw this look (LOL) However, Kanye West was undoubtedly the best dressed male celebrity at the MET gala, wearing an extremely tailored Tory Burch tuxedo. The safety pin detail was one of my favorites.

Max Irons looked great as well.

    Met Gala is like the Oscars so ppl need to dress to impress, most of them did it but the rest were such a hot mess, I like this post. My Fav one were Christina Ricci, Gisele Bundchen, SJP, Liv Tyler N Kanye were the best dress! Beyonce looks so horrible, Janelle Monae seems like she wears the same thing at every single red carpet and Blake Lively gosh awful! but it’s just my humble opinion

  2. I totally agree with you. I have no idea what I was thinking when I put Janelle Monae, but she really needs a stylist!
