Red Carpet Commentary: Met Gala 2012′s Hottest Dresses
At the Costume Institute Gala at the Met (the biggest fashion party of the year), we spotted the dramatic, the questionable, but most importantly, the stunning! To do the Met Gala justice, we consulted our go-to red carpet commentator and bebe PR coordinator, Kenna, to dissect the trends and handpick her personal favorite celebrity style moments. Plus, she chose Met Gala-inspired bebe dresses to suit any special event! We need the help…our calendar is bursting at the seams with invites.
Who do you think made the best dressed list?
THE DEEP V
WHY KENNA LOVED IT>> “The stars took the plunge last night in daring low-cut numbers, which we loved! One of my favorites was Camilla Belle in this gorgeous allover embellished, deep V-neck gown. She looked stunningly chic, and I like the wine-colored lipstick she chose, perfect for mixing things up!”

PEPLUM & MERMAID
WHY KENNA LOVED IT>> “Peplum silhouettes are so on trend right now. We’re seeing them almost everywhere! I like that these dresses have corseted tops and mermaid trains to go along with the peplum because it allows you to show off your curves. These ladies opted for fun colors, which is refreshing and head turning.”

THE BACK PLUNGE
WHY KENNA LOVED IT>> “Backless dresses ruled the night at the Met Ball. My personal fave was Cameron Diaz, who was showstopping in this backless silk beaded dress. Talk about iconic Hollywood beauty! The other ladies looked gorgeous as well with lots of embellishments, trains and crocodile, oh my!”
WHY KENNA LOVED IT>> “Embellishment was a major trend for the stars that night. Whether it was a gown bedazzled in sequins or a train of feathers, the stars were all about it! I think Gisele looks incredible in this ultra-sexy gown with the high slit and her hair pulled back. I mean, who doesn’t love a little sparkle? It doesn’t hurt when you have Tom Brady on your arm either…”
