Best dressed :: 2012 Met Gala Awards

High drama hair and make-up, along with colour blocking and lots of neon, marked the trend at last night's Met Gala Awards. 

There were a few misses of the evening, notably Leighton Meester (the hair and make up was all wrong) and Dakota Fanning (her dress was not flattering at all); but overall I was thoroughly impressed by the risks that people took, especially Christina Ricci, who wore Thakoon - what an incredible dress!

I've narrowed down to my top 10 favourite looks of the evening...

{Carey Mulligan in Prada}

{Camilla Belle in Ralph Lauren}

{Mary-Kate Olsen in The Row}

{Hanneli in Calvin Klein}

{Rihanna in Tom Ford}

{Solange Knowles in Rachel Roy}

{Kate Boswoth in Prada}

{Ivanka Trump in Peter Pilotto}

{Christina Ricci in Thakoon}

{Gisele Bundchen in Givenchy}

{Chloe Sevigny in Miu Miu}

Who wore your favourite look of the night?
