Met Gala

The year's most exciting fashion event is happening tonight in New York. - The Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual Costume Institute Gala.
The event is sponsored by GAP this year which means many of the glamourous stars are wearing collaborations between the hottest designers and the highstreet label. Gap's creative director Patrick Robinson has worked with labels such as Thakoon, Alexander Wang and Rodarte and others to create gowns based on this year's theme - American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity.
The dresses, to be worn by stars including Jessica Alba, MIA, Kirsten Dunst and Riley Keough, will then be auctioned over the next few days to raise money for the Costume Institute.

I love seeing the mix of designers, models, movie stars, musicians, stylists and editors rubbing shoulders and competing for a place on the best dressed list.
Anyone who is anyone in the world of fashion walks the red carpet up the famous Metropolitan steps.
And unlike most red carpets, designers and stars throw caution to the wind and step out of their comfort zones to experiment with OTT styles and designs.
Here are some of my favourite looks from previous years
Diane Kruger in Chanel - 2009

An absolute favourite - Mary Kate Olsen - 2009
