The Metropolitan Costume Institute Gala (Met Ball) also known as "Oscars of the East Coast", is an annual ball that celebrates the annual opening of the Metropolitan Museum's fashion exhibit .The red carpet evening where celebrities arrive dressed to impress is described as the fashion industry's "Night of Nights". This year's theme was “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations”.
Here we'll give our individual opinions about the Met Gala 2012's Hot = awesome, Warm = not too good, not too bad, Cold = horrible.
They scorched the Red Carpet!1.Carrey Mulligan.
The British actress looked sensational wearing a custom two-tone gold-and-silver Prada halter dress covered with paillettes.Her dress with a pleated detail at the back was styled with satin Prada pumps and a simple updo with a rockabilly twist.
Both : She killed us with her look!
2. January Jones.
January Jones picked a bright yellow Versace number for this evening's Met Gala.
Both : We have developed a crush on her! She nailed it with her structured dress, the color looks beautiful on her and her turquoise jewellery works with the dress.
The actress looked stunning wearing a Ralph Lauren Spring 2012 gown. Her ivory tulle beaded dress was teamed with Ralph Lauren vintage collection art deco jewels. Ralph Lauren collection champagne python sandal with bamboo heel completed her look.
Both : With the right twist of vintage and class Camilla look was fab. We love the styling which included a sleek side bun, shimmer copper eyes and that hot chocolate lip colour.
5. Solange Knowles
Knowles wore a Rachel Roy sunny yellow peplum gown with gold accessories. She kept it simple with natural makeup and hair.
Both : We love the fact that she paid attention to her accessories. Her dress was a beautiful colour with worked really well with the skin tone. What we loved the most was her amazing natural curls and not over done make up.
6. Jessica Pare
licked-back hair left ample room to showcase a pair of stud earrings.A sleek black clutch in hand finished the look.
Both : The newcomer made a stunning arrival at the Met Gala in a gold-sequin gown. The scoop neck and curve-conscious fit created a sexy hourglass silhouette. She looks ravishing, need we say more?
Rihanna is in Tom Ford.
Both : Rihanna does the sleek and minimal look which totally works in her favour. Yet she makes a statement with the black croc skin gown. Her back stole the show!
8. Ashley Greene
Ashley Greene is in a Donna Karan white sequined gown. Silver clutch and drop earrings completed her look.
Both : She looks drop dead gorgeous in that outfit. The accessories, hair, makeup was to the mark.
9. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Rosie is in Burberry. Bronze clutch, statement earring and a top bun completed the look.
Both : What is not to love about this look? It's minimal and effective. We loved the vintage top bun and statement earrings. Also love how the gown trails behind.
10. Renée Zellweger.
Renée Zellweger in EmilioPucci.
Both : We were awe struck when we saw her. She looks gorgeous in that amazing gown. The backless, the sheer, feather and the gold accents made the gown work in her favour.
Not so good, not so bad.
1. Hilary Swank
Hilary Swank in Michael Kors red gown. The earrings, beutiful waves and clutch added to the look.
Diana : Loved the side swept hair, earrings and the red gown was gorgeous.Rachana : As much as I loved the gown the entire look is not my favourite.
2. Marion Cotillard.
Marion Cotillard in Dior and black accessories.
Diana: Love the sheer, two toned gown. She looks adorable in the pixie hair do.
Rachana: Love, love, love the gown but the hair looked kind of drab and the accessories didn't do much good either.
3. Coco Rocha
Coco Rocha in Vintage Givenchy and Sergio Rossi satin platform pumps and a gold clutch
Diana: Such a beautiful woman but what's wit the outfit? She could do so much better! Love the hair though.
Rachana: The colours, the print, the shoes and that gorgeous pink streaks are my absolute favourites. I think this look should definitely be in the 'hot' category.
4. Karolina Kurkova
Both: There is too much going on here! Individually the pieces would have looked good. Love the back and her jewellery.
These are the people who gave us cold feet! :O
1.Lana del Rey
Lana del Rey in Altuzarra.
Both: Someone seems to be influenced by Twilight! She has the bling, the cape and the brown lips in place. Kristen darling you've got tough competition here! ;)
2. Elizabeth Banks

Both: A failed attempt at futuristic fashion. Too much of prints going on here!
3. Lena Dunham
