I looked & looked if I were to attend, I wouldn't know which gown to choose! They are all so pretty! xox MBM

Wow, gorgeous! I can't even pick my favorite because I love them all. It seems like they dress up more for the MET, than for the Academy Awards.

I could analyze each dress, but I'll just pick one. Doesn't Blake Lively always seem to wear a one-shouldered number? I guess she wears them well. I'm still deciding if I should wear my Lilly P Sandra dress in yellow (one shouldered) to a formal engagement party this weekend. A do or don't?

Such beautiful gowns! I love the dresses of Carolina Herrera (classic as always)and Camilla Belle. Not sure what Anna Wintour was thinking and Blake Lively's dress, not liking that at all.

Emma Watson is GORGEOUS. When did she grow up and become so beautiful??

Lily Lemontree said...

Sweet Southern Prep-I would say a definite 'do' but I am a little partial to one-shouldered dresses, I just love them! A mix of sexy and sophisticated, how can you go wrong with that combination!

Lesley Ann said...

I love all the dresses you posted.
I was very shocked at Katy Perry's "light-up" dress. How tacky. Why did Anna Wintour let her in the front door? All she needed to go with it were plasitc stripper heels!

I was so close to including Naomi Watts and SJP too.
Naomi looked radiant. She always gets her hair and make-up really right.

I'm actually not sure about Blake Lively. The girl has one of the best bodies in the business, but I don't know if the Met is quite the right place to be showing so much of it.
Thanks for commenting on my blog.
