According to most analysts, Beyonce stole the show with her "absolutely stunning" Givenchy outfit. You have to see it close up to appreciate how much work went into it as the picture below fails to do it much justice. Saying that, I personally do not share their enthusiasm and excitement for that outfit; It looks more or less like an over the top Las Vegas showgirl outfit. She did look absolutely beautiful and in good shape and health which made up for the dress choice.
There were very few fashion successes of the night. The only wow's were for shocking attires like Emma Stone's red school prom dress and Kristen stewart's overly casual and terrible combo of multi-coloured leatherish skirt and a xena the warrior princess style strapless top... ohhh actually i have been informed by Balenciaga that it is a dress after all. Lovely look for a night out clubbing with R Patz and certainly NOT for the Met Gala.
Rihanna played it safe with her uber sexy Tom Ford leather number. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley followed RiRi's lead and played it safe with her Burberry number too. Caped crusader Lana Del Rey donned the French designer Joseph Altuzarra's dress which she claimed was the "embodiment of her music". Well i'll let you be the judge of that. As for Kisten Dunst, well whoever suggested THAT outfit to her clearly misunderstood the event.
Anyway here are some of the outfits with my caption.
