No their feathers weren't ruffled! These stars were happily wrapped in gowns of feathers at the Met last night.  From dark ones to white ones with graduated colors, it was definitely a popular theme among some of the celebrities.  Plus, a great way to pay tribute to Alexander McQueen.

No we are not at the Royal Wedding, we're still at the Met Gala! These are some dramatic millinary work on top.  Pretty cool to look though.

There were the reds, feathers and menswear inspired looks.  Among these, the trend of CUT OUTs were prominent at the Met.  The favorite was Gennifer's Topshop dress.  Perfectly cut in all the right places, topped with the beautiful green fabric and her Van Cleef & Arpels necklace made this entire outfit complete.  Well... almost, check out her heels!

No wonder why red is used at stop lights... Gisele and Jennifer along with many other celebrities rocked the gala in their show stopping reds.  The peekaboo Gucci gown Jennifer has on is wonderfully romantic yet devilish don't you think?

Nude + Long Sleeved = Gowns

Among the mermaid trains and ostrich feathered gowns, some starlets were clad in ravishing long sleeved nude gowns.  Adorned all over their intricate dresses are hand sewn glass beads that shined in the lights of flashing photographers as they graced over the red carpet.

WOW! These dresses were amazing.  Yes over the top and some were really over the top but all in all that is why it is the Costume gala is it not? Well done ladies! (and gents).
