The Met Ball 2011

It is that time of year again where celebrities and designers alike unite for what is aptly considered the Oscars of fashion.
Though the Costume Institute Gala gave all of us a chance to bestow our eyes on some of the most beautiful designs of the season, I thought I would share some of my favourites.

This nude Donna Karan dress worn by Ashley Greene was one of my favourites mostly due to that gorgeous fishtail hem.

This past year Prabal Gurung has become one of the designers I admire the most and I must say that he did not disappoint.

Riccardo Tisci is another incredible talent. I think I could sell my soul for this Givenchy Haute Couture piece. The white and yellow ombre is beautiful and the feather work on this dress is prodigious.

Tommy Hilfiger is not usually a name I associate with 'Haute Couture' or 'Gala', but I very much enjoyed this dress. Jessica Stam looked very much Pretty in Pink. I have a great affinity for Tulle and those visible layers behind her ribboned sandals made me gasp with delight.

I thought I would end this post with a well dressed male. It is so rare do see straight men take chances with evening wear, I found it necessary to compliment Orlando Bloom with his fabulous polka dotted lapel.
