One of the biggest events on the fashion calender, the Met Ball in New York hosts the whos who of fashion and celebrity royalty. Each year a designer is partnered with a celebrity who not only is a massive fan of their work, it is someone the designer is inspired by.

As expected Anna Wintour, accompanied by her daughter Bee, is wearing Chanel couture. Karl Lagerfeld partnered his muse of the moment Blake Lively from Gossip girl, who like so many chose to wear a neutral shade.Other trends seen were a many a sequin, crystal and detail; metallics, block colours, silks and thigh high splits.

Makeup was varied, with a number of people choosing smokey eyes- to compliment the metallics and heavy details in their dress; bronze eyes and contours; and beautifully dewy, flawless skin. Lips were kept clean, with soft washes of oranges, reds and nudes were extremely popular! Except for the minority, most kept their makeup clean, simple and effective... Softly lined eyes and lots of mascara.

Hair was mostly keep carefree and down. Soft tousled waves were all that was needed.. Loved all the hair/head accessories!

Her clutch is perfect, as is the fit of that stunning dress..

Alexa! I giggle everytime I see her on a red carpet event.
She makes simplicity an art. Knows what she likes, and
works her butt off in such a carefree way- makes you want
be her.

Not because this look blows me away, but because
the entire look makes a cool statement. Gennifer is
bang on trend and works it effortlessly. Her skin looks

Liv looks just a stunning as she did 10 years ago.
Effortless chic.

mary kate ashley olsen met ball 2011 07

Not a huge fan of the dress, but a MASSIVE
fan of the makeup. Mary Kate is a perfect example
on how to make a smokey eye sexy.. by grading it out.

No one can ever blame the girl for not taking risks,
and the Met Ball is the place to do it. The hair is great up top, until
the plait comes down to her bum. Ew. Love the makeup though!
