Met Ball 2012

The Met Ball can outshine the Oscars in terms of red-carpet outfits and with a multitude of actors, designers, musicians and models this year's outfits proved to be no less daring. Held annually at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, this year celebrated a new exhibition of late fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli's work - "Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations". Long gowns typically dominated the scene but some celebrities took on shorter ensembles and even jumpsuits. Fabrics became more futuristic, metallic and transparent - and this year had less of a feminine touch than last year's graceful gowns. My favourite look of the night was Jessica Alba in Micheal Kors - a bold gold gown that both flattered her figure and skin tone.

Following close by is Camilla Belle in Ralph Lauren- this time in silver with an ivory beaded gown, sheer detailing, a plunging v-neck and open back, looking old-school glamorous with Ralph Lauren vintage collection jewellery.

Two stars turned up with dark, seductive Givenchy numbers- Dragon Tattoo's Rooney Mara in a lace custom made gown and model Gisele B√ľndchen in slim femme-fatale couture.

Tom Ford, American designer, also appeared on the red carpet with super long, super tight and innovative designs for singer Rihanna and model Chanel Iman.
