Gold Fever At The Met Gala: Our Favorite Sparkling Gowns

Gold gowns at the 2012 Met Gala

Is it our fault that we love a good sequin? No, right? Because nothing can make a better statement at an event than an embellished gown done right. Case in point, the Met Gala in New York last night was a gold rush with sparkling gowns everywhere! Whether it was Jessica Pare‘s sleek L’Wren Scott column (paired with Tiffany’s jewels and a Louboutin bag) or Kate Uptons molten metal Michael Kors, we were hooked. Right off the bat, we’re going to have to tell you who our favorite was, though. The honor goes to Jessica Alba who looked like a vintage dream with her hair done up in side-swept Marcel waves, and a gold Grecian, one-shouldered Michael Kors. That’s two winning looks for the designer already. Our second favorite has got to be newly married Carey Mulligan in a rather space-age looking Prada.

Other assorted lovelies in the metallic zone were Cameron Diaz in a minimal Stella McCartney, Scarlett Johansson in a wonderfully feminine, frothy Dolce & Gabbana and Leighton Meester in a delicate Marchesa with sheer hints. Lana del Rey was so dramatic with her dazzling Altuzarra gown and awesome black cape that we have to applaud her. Nina Dobrev hardly has bad days, does she? It’s also impossible to have a bad day when you’ve got a gorgeous face and body and are wearing a custom Donna Karen Atelier gown. Head to the gallery for all the high-octane glamor.
