Get the Look: Met Gala 2012

The Fashion Oscars as some have dubbed it has come and gone in the blink of an eye and everyone from leading ladies to queens of the runway to football stars brought their a-game. There was certainly no shortage of sartorial risk-takers and we loved the variety in color, texture, embellishments, and cut. Take a style cue from four of our favorite ladies below for your next event this season.

 

Emma Stone wore this insane custom number designed by Alber Elbaz of Lanvin. Adorned with 3,000 flower appliques, the unique texture gives and updated, modern feel to this traditional cocktail dress cut. Play with texture and bold color for your next event in a fun Nanette Lepore dress.

 

 

Jessica Alba has seriously never looked better and we can’t get over how chic and rich this metallic, gold pleated Michael Kors dress looks. Her side-swept hair, which she said was inspired by Elsa Schiaparelli’s signature asymmetrical look, balances out the complete picture nicely. Get her glamorous molten look for your next event with this Halston Heritage gown. Sun-kissed tan not included!

 

 

Lea Michele proves that sequins are here to stay for Summer in this midnight blue plunging V halter dress. The DVF designed gown flatters the star’s figure perfectly and we love how the fabric is elegantly gathered at the midsection. For a similar, figure-flattering look go with Nicole Miller’s Navy Sequin Gown for a formal event this summer.

 

 

Rooney Mara sticks to what she knows in a lacy, sheer black Givenchy Haute Couture style. Her rosy lips soften up the look a little and slicked back hair keeps all emphasis on the dress. Channel Rooney in a lacy, romantic Robert Rodriguez Black Label dress for your next black tie event.
