The Met 2012

Well, what can I say about this year's Met Gala... WOW. 

For the first time I managed to stay awake and watch this year's celebs and icons of the fashion industry walk down that famous piece of red carpet, elegantly flaunting beautiful dresses that I can only wish to ever own.

I noticed many standouts which were hot on trend with this season's metallics and bright colours. Also, a particular favourite of mine is the dark lip trend that is currently bombarding the red carpet. Celebrities such as Lana Del Ray, Camilla Belle and Kate Bosworth looked sultry yet glamorous sporting this trend, a look which made these women appear striking on that red carpet where "blending in with the crowd" will do you no wonders. 

The fashion industry is clearly booming, and it is events like this that really celebrate the fashion industry. The night saw the opening of the  Impossible Conversations: Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada show exhibition, followed by an Oscar-style dinner with performances by Bruno Mars and Azealia Banks to conclude the evening. IF ONLY I could have been a fly on the wall at The Met that night, (or even better an invited guest) but then again I can always hope for the future!
