Did you see the MET Gala online this past Monday?  It was really interesting to see the event live. The 2012 Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and  showcasing the “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations.”

I felt like I was right there from the photographers view point.

I actually heard a photographer say something like “How can you text on the red carpet,” because a person was blocking his view of photographing Eva Mendes.  Boy talking about cut-throught comments. It was interesting to hear the photographers call for a celebrity to turn a certain way to get that perfect shot by commenting on great they look.

I watched the MET Gala red carpet preview from amazonfashions.com. I really enjoyed watching the designers come in with their muses wearing a design original with loaned  jewelry. I heard one actress actually say she thought she had a certain designer jewelry on.  She wasn’t sure? ‘t felt surreal because I was right there hearing it all. The power of technology makes moments like these happen.

Well if you don’t know what the MET Gala event is all about.  It’s nicknamed the Oscars of the East coast. Actors, singers, editors, etc. come decked out in fabulous designer attire often with the designer with them walking down the red carpet.

A few favorites from the MET Gala.

This dress is so shiny and in your face.  Very edgy, I really like it and wonder if it’s heavy.

This dress by Givenchy that Beyonce is wearing comes across as very avant grade, so out of the box. I picked this dress because people think it’s revealing and actually it’s not at all. Beyonce is fully covered. I think there’s a flesh colored body suit with tights or a full body suit attached underneath that dress that gives the illusion of extra skin showing. Givenchy, very clever construction of the dress, I must say.

Elettra Wiedmann, daughter of Isabella Rosselini and Ingrid Bergman, interviewed guests on the red carpet looked so pretty and she looked really lovely in this dress. This dress was revealing but tastefully done, the red color is so vibrant and beautiful.

Paula Patton looked really pretty in this Vera Wang dress. I love the construction of this dress because it focuses on fit in all the right places.The vertical lines really makes the body look slim in all the right places and the color of the dress makes Paula’s face glow.

What a night, hope AmazonFashions or Vogue have the MET Gala online next year. I will have to start doing research on my designer gown now.
