“Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” 2011 Costume Institute Gala At The Metropolitan Museum Of Art

Celebs from all over the globe gathered at the Costume Institute Gala At The Metropolitan Museum Of Art to honor the late Alexander McQueen. The gala was full of those who's lights shined brightly, those who played it safe and some who completely missed the mark. Let's take a look, shall we?

Eva Mendes sizzled on the red carpet in this pleated cobalt blue number, cinched at the waist with a gold belt. Loves it!

Iman looks all of 35 in this matte sequined jumpsuit. Though the color almost matches her skin tone exactly, she doesn't look washed out. HOT!

Power couple, Jay-Z and Beyonce looked like the stars they are. Jay looks nice in his white jacket and trousers and Bey is giving them body in this brocade fishtail dress. Two thumbs up!

Rihanna looks great in this black sequined lace dress with a slight train, but I wish she would have done a pop of color down below. A teal shoe would have brought this look all the way to life.

Janelle Monea was her usual self in this menswear inspired look. She looks nice, but I'm a bit tired of the black and white ho-hum. I'd love to see her in some color for a change.

Cute couple Christine Teigen and John Legend looked nice on the red carpet.  Christine brought the drama in her lace/ruffled/ feathered number.

American Idol judge, J Lo looked breathtakingly beautiful in this red halter dress with a rosette bolero. A sleek bun completes the look. Fantastico!

Actress Zoe Saldana fell flat in this boring yellow number. The color is pretty, but a little more drama is expected for such an event.

 American Next Top Model judge, Andre Leon Tally looked grape-ful in this violet tent cape, and we'd expect nothing less of him.

Tennis champ, Serena Williams pulled out this feathered gown and hat for the occasion, but we're staring at her for all the wrong reasons...

 Basketball couple, Carmelo and LaLa Anthony came through. Caremlo looks hot in his tuxedo, but LaLa is giving me ostrich fever in this feathered frock. Not feeling it.

Of course, Mr. West couldn't be left out. The rapper looked dapper in his tux. Nice and simple.

 And last, but not least super model and Alexander McQueen muse came through in this white McQueen gown. While I love that she wore a dress by the designer to an event honoring him, I cannot co-sign this look. She looks a like Big Bird's auntie and the hair style isn't helping the cause.

What do you think of the celebs looks?


  1. Beyonce looked wack, didn't like Rihanna either...at least her hair and shoes,Zoe was underdressed, was Serena getting married?, I didn't care for Naomi's look either, but everyone else looked pretty damn fabulous! I especially loved JLo's look (currently making a dress that's suppose to look similar to that) and John Legend's boo's look.

  2. Oh! And I can't forget about Iman. She was doing it! She is a beauty and style inspiration to us all. I hope to age as gracefully as she did...not off to a good start though. :(

  3. LOL at not off to a good start. You can start by getting more sleep and drinking more water :)
