Yesterday was the opening of the Costume Institute Gala’s annual fashion exhibit with the theme Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. Celebrities from all walks of the industry flock to the Met Gala to show off their best fashion ensemble and raise funds for the…well, the Institute. With that being said let me present to you my Top 10 Favorites this year and we’ve a lot of super-awesome outfits and costumes so trimming it down to 10 was super-difficult!

My internet connection was giving me headache and almost gave up with this year’s Best Dressed list but I figured that I cannot ignore these beautiful women who showed up beautifully and all dressed up like winners. (sad though because the day before the Grammys – Feb. 11, the legend, the voice, the music icon WHITNEY HOUSTON left us – such a shame really but the show must go on and so our list)
Wow. I am totally inlove with Guiliana Rancic tonight. This simple little black dress with matching black and gold heels are just a–mazing!
Heiress Paris Hilton in Basil Soda. She maybe irrelevant but she sure looked oh so fine!
Carrie Underwood in Gomez-Garcia. This is a fine number, even with the sparkle I still find it a bit subdued but nevertheless one of the best of the night 🙂
Ann V *speechless* oh, is that a dress? Lucky Maroon 5 guy!
I honestly have no idea why Kate’s here but she’s totally rocking this look! *salivating* and I’m not complaining at all!
Now, this is Adele in perfect elegance wearing Giorgio Armani! Her divine face could pull off anything. Oh, by the way – Congrats for sweeping the all your nominations! Well deserved mama!
Fergie’s wearing this sheer lace gown from the Jean Paul Gaultier couture collection! Fergie never looked this good!
I just totally love what Rihanna was rocking last night! This Giorgio Armani dress totally gave this girl gone bad a super slick-elegant look! I love you RiRi and you know that!
Katy Perry is wearing this dreamy Elie Saab Couture gown. It was the perfect post-divorce look. Mama Kitty working it big time!!!
I’m not really a big fan of T.Swift’s fashion sense but she totally blew me away with this Zuhair Murad number! The East-inspired dress is perfection with its dragon embroidery making Swift, oh well – The Ultimate Best Dressed Of The Night!

It’s been exactly 10 months since Alexander McQueen’s body was found hanged at his home in London. A sad, sad event that left the whole fashion and entertainment industry mourning for this great loss. Lee Alexander McQueen, without question was a genius that revolutionized fashion in such a daring and ferocious manner. Clearly, with his technically and aesthetically creative works; McQueen will eternally be remembered!
A Few Things About Lee:
He was awarded “British Designer of the Year” four times!
He was the creative Director of GUCCI.
He was the head designer of GIVENCHY from 1996-2001.
He was discovered by Isabella Blow who also committed suicide in 2007.
His patrons includes Lady Gaga, Camilla Belle, Katie Holmes and Rihanna to name a few.
His creations will be immortalized next year at the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art that will stage Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.
He brought a uniquely British sense of daring and aesthetic fearlessness to the global stage of fashion. In such a short career, Alexander McQueen’s influence was astonishing – from street style, to music culture and the world’s museums. His passing marks an insurmountable loss. – Anna Wintour
Local magazine, PREVIEW also paid their tribute on their 15th anniversary issue last June with model Georgina Wilson wearing recreations of McQueen’s most iconic looks.
Hail to THE Queen!
