After the Awards season one of my favourite events to cover has to be the Costume Institute Gala in New York, and this year’s event honouring Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, did not disappoint me. It seems that the Honorary chairs of the gala benefit François-Henri Pinault and Salma Hayek (in Alexander McQueen couture) seen above with co-chairs Colin Firth, Stella McCartney, and Anna Wintour, really did a good job on the guest-list.

I always like time to reflect on my favourites, but I think I have finally pinned it down to my top three looks.

Snapping up the top spot for me has to be Isabel Lucas, I love everything about her enchanted look, from the colour and the pleats to the bow-shaped button accents, oh and did I forget to mention the most amazing headpiece I have ever seen. Isabel looks divine in her Louis Vuitton gown.

Second up has to be this exquisite Donna Karan gown worn by Ashley Greene, the detailing on this dress is so amazing and every event needs that princess moment for me – and this one is perfection. If like me you are a little obsessed with this gorgeous gown and you are lucky enough to live in New York then head on down to the Madison Avenue Donna Karan store where the dress will be on display.

For my third slot I went back and forth a lot, as I loved all the McQueen looks especially Coco Rocha in her navy gown and Salma Hayek in blush, however I think in true Barbie fashion it is only right to go for a blonde in pink, so my third best dressed is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

You have to admit, the FHM’s World’s Sexiest Woman does look absolutely stunning in her custom Burberry frock, I am excited to see what looks she brings out for Transformers 3 promo tour.

Check out all the dresses here. Let me know which is your favourite.

Met Gala 2011: Ashley Greene Wows In Donna Karan

Who: Actress Ashley Greene

Where: At the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City

Wearing: A custom made blush tulle draped strapless Donna Karan gown embroidered with platinum sequins in a fishbone pattern, teamed with a Judith Leiber clutch

Verdict: This was of the best surprises of the night for me, not only is this a gown with intricate detailing but I was surprised that Ashley Greene was the one wearing it. This I think is my best dressed of the night, truly spectacular, and I am glad that she worked this dress as it could have easily overpowered her.

Met Gala 2011: Eva Mendes in Stella McCartney

221086 10150178334729864 55817334863 7043566 7204566 o 500x751 Met Gala 2011: Eva Mendes in Stella McCartney %tag

Who: Eva Mendes

Where: At the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City

Wearing: An electric blue silk one-sleeve pleated Stella McCartney gown with a gold belt

Verdict: The colour, the pleats and the silhouette of this gown is gorgeous, however on Eva it just looks a little safe, elegant but still safe. I only say that because I always feel that Eva can pull of anything, she is still beautiful but I am going to have to list this as, was expecting more.

Met Gala 2011: Coco Rocha Goes Navy In McQueen

210774 196156040427846 158576650852452 502503 911674 o 500x750 Met Gala 2011: Coco Rocha Goes Navy In McQueen %tag

Who: Model Coco Rocha

Where: At the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City

Wearing: A navy halter-neck Alexander McQueen gown from the pre-fall 2011 collection with an embellished feather belt and feather clutch

Verdict: It was a hard choice between the models for me, Coco generally gets my vote I think she is an amazing model, and this is a stunning gown with all the feathers embellishments. But does she beat Gisele and Rosie? I am just not sure.

Met Gala 2011: SJP Shimmers In McQueen

220955 196156600427790 158576650852452 502515 6571015 o 500x751 Met Gala 2011: SJP Shimmers In McQueen %tag

Who: Sarah Jessica Parker

Where: At the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City

Wearing: A silver crystal embellished Alexander McQueen dress from the autumn/winter 2005 collection

Verdict: I love the high neckline and the exquisite beaded detail to this gown, it has an elegance that suits SJP, but for me doesn’t have the wow factor I was expecting from her. But once again it is the hair that has won me over – love the volume.

Met Gala 2011: Salma Hayek A Blush Beauty

209493 196156293761154 158576650852452 502509 1889926 o 500x751 Met Gala 2011: Salma Hayek A Blush Beauty %tag

Who: Salma Hayek

Where: At the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City

Wearing: An Alexander McQueen couture Peach organza Rose dress, teamed with a clear perspex clutch from the spring/summer 2011 clutch

Verdict: Not many people went for nude/blush tones and this certainly helped Salma as she was the belle of the ball for me, this is one of my favourite gowns. I love the rose detailing to the side, and her hair is divine I glad she went for curly. I just think this is a glamorous gown that deserved to hit the red carpet at an event like this. The only think I am not too fussed about has to be the clutch, I just wish she had been a diva and gone without.

Met Gala 2011: Rihanna Sexy In Stella McCartney

219018 10150178335544864 55817334863 7043573 1201955 o 500x751 Met Gala 2011: Rihanna Sexy In Stella McCartney %tag

Who: Rihanna

Where: At the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City

Wearing: A black lace one-sleeve *sorry you can’t see from this shot – trust me though* designed by Stella McCartney, paired with Christian Louboutin heels and emerald earrings

Verdict: I love this dress, but is it very Rihanna is what I have been asking myself. Don’t get me wrong she looks absolutely stunning, and she does give this gown a sex appeal that I don’t think everyone would do, but come on for me it is all about her amazing long braid – LOVE it!! Also the scalloped hem is divine.

If this dress isn’t very Rihanna, I have been thinking that it would have looked amazing on a non-pregnant Kate Hudson or Cameron Diaz maybe.
