The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan.

Miranda Kerr, the Austrialian beauty.

Absolutely  s t u n n i n g  in Jil Sander. 

A perfect example of the LBD gone wildly sophisticated.

Paradoxical, the idea.

Perfectly trashy all the while elegant.

Peeks of skin never looked so right

Ashley Olsen, my favourite of the twins.

Truly an angelical vision in all white, graced in her own creation from The Row.

Where conservatism and the liberal  j u x t a p o s e .

A high neckline, long sleeves, a floor-length gown.

Yet a low back, revealing a gorgeous jewel. 

Elegant would be an understatement.

And last but not least, the best for last.

Daria Werbowy, with her  e n d l e s s  legs, wins best dressed.

A sequinned mini paired with ankle boots?

Genius. A sight amongst the ubiquitous gowns at the Met.

Smokey eyes, loose hair, all  b l a c k .

I die.

    Ashley has always been my favorite twin, as well. She looks so incredibly divine in this dress. The fabric simply cascades over her body. And the color? Gorgeous!

    Ah! Ashley & Daria were my faves too! Absolutely gorgeous! I also loved Diane Kruger’s Chanel…so purdy! 🙂

    After seeing almost all the pictures made at this event, I can’t decide who or who’s outfit I liked the most. Your picks are among my favs too! My shortlist: Molly Sims, Helena Christensen, Diane Krüger: yes, Rihanna: undecided, Madonna, Blake Lively: no.

  17. 7 May 2009 6:44 pm

  18. 7 May 2009 6:49 pm

    i’m really liking ashley’s hair all straight and sleek like that.

  25. 8 May 2009 3:17 am

    Hi there-I think there were a lot of stunning dresses about for the Met, thanks for sharing, Daria certainly looks divine!

  26. 8 May 2009 4:22 am

    Ashley to me looks flawless, and effortless.
    I love Miranda’s face, but not loving the dress unfortunatley.

  27. 8 May 2009 10:17 am

    They all lookso pretty, but Ashley has to win it for me. She looks stunning and her make up is beautiful.

  28. 8 May 2009 11:20 am

    I love your choices so much!!! Miranda and Ashley were my fav’s as well!

  29. 8 May 2009 1:35 pm

    omg!!! i love Daria’s dress;) brilliant;D

  30. 8 May 2009 9:37 pm

    Oh my gosh they all look so stunning x Sushi

  31. 9 May 2009 11:49 am

    miranda looked amazing, that dress is so much better on a person than a mannequin, I didn’t even see the open detailing!

    I thought Ashley was wearing CK. I think The Row is stepping too closely on his aesthetic right now.

  32. 9 May 2009 12:09 pm

    Miranda Kerr looks amazing!

    I’m soooo stupid !
    I forgot Daria’s pic in my faves, she was a-bso-lu-te-ly stunning !
    I agree with you about Miranda Kerr, she was rocking it… besides I wrote an article recently about ‘the’ dress and I mentionated that Jil Sander dress so I was superflattered to see I was right^^

  34. 9 May 2009 7:58 pm

    All these ladies look great!

  35. 10 May 2009 1:40 am
