Who: Karolina Kurkova
Where: At the Met Gala 2012 in New York
Wearing: A long-sleeved fitted gold sequinned custom-made Rachel Zoe gown, with an open back, teamed with a matching gold sequinned turban, and gold clutch
Verdict: This is one breathtaking gown and look, which could have only been pulled together by stylist extraordinary and now designer Rachel Zoe. One of the main reasons why I love the Met Gala nearly as much as the Oscars is because the models work the red carpet rather than the catwalk, and they always seem to pull off impossible looks, and Karolina proves in this gorgeous Rachel Zoe creation that she is one amazing model.
I love this look from head to toe, the whole look is just so over the top, but that’s the point the Met Gala is the biggest fashion event of the year if you can’t make a splash at this event where can you? I think Karolina works the gold statuette look amazingly, this is without a doubt one of my best looks, I completely adore it!!!
One last thing though – am I the only one that instantly thought of Kate Moss from the 2009 Met Gala wearing Marc Jacobs when they saw Karolina hit the red carpet? Obviously not identical, but maybe Rachel’s pal Marc inspired the creation.
