2012 Met Costume Institute Gala: The Top Trends From the Red Carpet
It's time to break down the top red carpet trends from the 2012 Met Gala red carpet. Metallics might have been the big story of the night, with Karolina Kurkova stunning in a slim-fitting gown and matching turban courtesy of Rachel Zoe, Michael Kors dressing Jessica Alba like a golden goddess, and Camilla Belle looking every bit the '20s siren in Ralph Lauren. There were also plenty of plumes, from Diane Kruger's purple Prada gown to Kate Bosworth's flirty Prada dress. It continues to be the year of the peplum, while the next big trend in sexy dresses appears to be all about showing some sexy back — case in point, Rihanna. Don't forget about the orange crush, textural play and feather fetish we spotted, too! So many trends, so little time. Step inside to start your Met Gala red carpet revision.
