What some may consider the Oscars of fashion, 2012′s Met Gala did not disappoint. With many daring fashion choices, there will always be hits, misses, and trends to spot.
Red carpets always bring out the sparkle, and this event is no exception. With metallics and embellishments, these actresses rocked the trend, all with simple yet sleek hair and accessories. Shopping Lonny’s dresses section, you are sure to find many similar shining styles.
Lighting up the red carpet, these ladies stunned in simple silhouettes created from bright hues. With small but creative detailing, these gowns were anything but boring. Letting their dresses be the center of attention, all three actresses wore clutches or jewelry in coordinating tones. I’m loving stand-out shades in all forms for summer.
Plunging necklines are a sexy way to show some skin when wearing a long skirted piece. However, I’m not loving this trend across the board. Lea Michelle’s dress is not very flattering combined with that necklace, as it creates an extended-flat-chested illusion; Jessica Biel’s frock appears ill-fitting due to an odd skirt length for the revealing top half. Camilla Belle and Claire Danes wear the trend well, with defined waislines, pulled back hair, and simple accessories. To try out this look at home in a more casual way, the Ramona LaRue Chrissie Bodysuit is perfect.
I’m sure to be inspired by some of these Met Gala trends this summer, translating black tie into everday wear!
