The Met Ball 2012 (Costume Institute Gala)

Even though the Met Ball took place a few weeks ago, I still can't get over the beauty of it all! So many lovely gowns and frocks, suits and tuxedos...shall I go on?
Here are my favourite looks from the Met red carpet.

Beyonce in Givenchy Haute Couture

She's got the body for it, so why not wear something sheer and clingy, right?

Caroline Trentini in Theyskins' Theory with designer Olivier Theyskins

Baby blue never disappoints on the red carpet.

Chanel Iman in Tom Ford with the designer

There seems to be a reoccurring theme of sheer in the place...

Coco Rocha in vintage Givenchy

Coco matches her look to her hair to create this high voltage look.

Dakota Fanning in Louis Vuitton

She may be young, but she sure knows how to dress for the red carpet!

Diane Kruger in Prada

Something about this gown reminds me of Ursula.

Emma Stone in Lanvin with designer Alber Elbaz

Nothing says glamorous like red and black.

 Jessica Alba in Michael Kors

Bronzed skin and a bronze frock...I never thought the two could work together, but they do!

Kirsten Dunst in Rodarte

 I don't know the last time I saw tailoring on the red carpet, or on a woman on the red carpet for that matter, but I think it works!

Marion Cotillard in Dior

Another spin on the sheer look, this ones got sheer legs and a glitter bodice.

Renee Zellweger in custom Emilio Pucci with designer Peter Dundas

Do I need to comment here?

Scarlett Johansson in Dolce & Gabbana

Well atleast she didn't show up nude, she just showed up in nude.

Sofia Vergara in Marchesa

What made her believe she needed a figure exaggerating dress will forever confuse me....this woman has it all!

Tim Tebow in Ralph Lauren

I just had to throw this one into the mix...doesn't he look suave?

So the underlying theme on the red carpet this year so far is to wear something sheer, something embellished, something floor sweeping, or something pastel. Needless to say, there's something for everyone to choose from. So what look would you choose if you could spend a night on the red carpet?

Fashion Palette Runway

Fashion Palette is a rival fashion event to Sydney's Fashion Week. It has been rising in reputation and fame and is gradually becoming an industry keeper. The shows are made up of a few big name Australian designers as well as an array of up-&-coming Australian designers who are looking for a place to show off their work. This year the line-up included Arthur Galan, Wild Pony, Jatine, Paolo Sebastian, Anaessia, My Wild Love, Kabukiu, Bettina Liano, Nicola Finetti, Ilse Couture, Jayson Brunsdon, Katelyn Asslett, Lauren Damelian, Maple & Ray, Provocator, Sistar Shoes and Lilyhart. There was much to take in, each brand had a distinct view of the meaning of fashion and what young Australians want to wear in the coming summer. There was truly something for everyone, whether you were after swimwear, bright colours, evening gowns or just a great pair of jeans. Here is an overview of my picks from the Fashion Palette runway.
