DivaDebbi's Loves and Loathes at the 2012 Met Gala

Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada

The Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute Fete always takes place on the first Monday of May.  It is a gorgeous, glittering spectacle that combines brightest stars in the world of fashion, film, art and politics under one roof.

Last year one genius, Alexander McQueen, was honored with a blockbuster retrospective posthumously.  This year, two will be featured; Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada: Impossible Conversations. It promises to be a must see.

What was different this year was the all out Red Carpet spectacle, was live streamed for the first time. For me, it's another delicious heaping dish of dish--looks to love and loathe.

Seen, was tons of lace, feathers, high/low effects, metallics, juicy color, graphic prints, long peplums, bold ornamention and some black beauties.

In no particular order, My Loves:

  1. I also loved Marina Rust's dress - not sure whose it was. Your no's had me laughing out loud!!

    1. I love Marina's style...did not see a photo. Also, just added the exquisite Nina Dobrov in Donna Karan. Too pretty to have overlooked.
      Glad I started your day laughing. Quintessence starts my day smiling :)

  2. Beyonce must be post partum.
