Katrina’s Favorite Looks from the 2012 Met Ball
by Katrina Mitzeliotis
The Met Ball is literally like the Oscars of fashion, practically trumping all of awards season combined with the glamorous avant-garde dresses and major star power. I had the opportunity to go, and it was so refreshing to see so much variety on the red carpet! If you want to emulate some of the major trends I saw that night, check out my favorite David’s Bridal picks below.
Peplum detailing on skirts and dresses was a major trend for spring and summer on the runway, and it also ruled the red carpet at the Met Ball, with both Eva Mendes and January Jones showing off the trend. I love the detailing on this strapless dress—in fact, it’s almost the same color as January’s dress, (but is definitely more wearable)!
So many stars opted to flaunt their assets with a plunging neckline, making it a major trend at the Met Ball. From Dianna Agron to Debra Messing and Camilla Belle, stars showed off the trend in all shapes, sizes and silhouettes. If you want to recreate the look, I recommend wearing a halter dress, like the gorgeous gown below.
Talk about bringing sexy back! From Rihanna to Cameron Diaz, so many stars looked stunning. Their bare backs left such a dramatic yet chic impression. You too can achieve the same result by wearing a dress like this to your next affair.
From Emma Stone’s embellished gown to Hailee Stienfeld and Sarah Jessica Parker, the stars exhibited that florals are a fitting choice for formalwear at any age! Whether you go for a gorgeous gown or a flirty frock, the trend is such a nice way to show off a different look at your next occasion, like this vibrant gown.
