It’s certainly all about London designers at the moment and the red carpet was buzzing with them at the Costume Institute Gala Met Ball 2011.
Whether it was because this year’s Met Ball was dedicated to the late Alexander McQueen or because Kate, The Duchess of Cambridge, stepped out of her car in Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen on Friday or just because our Brit designers are just so brilliant – either way, the fashion houses of London were represented all over the red carpet! Aww, we’re so proud to be British right now!
The most spotted by far were Stella McCartney‘s dresses (and jumpsuit worn by Iman). The designer’s chums Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow were sporting her dresses, with Madge in an amazing silk turquoise gown with embellished stars. Stella also dressed Rihanna, Hailee Steinfeld, Eva Mendes, Naomi Watts and pregnant Kate Hudson, who looked radiant in a cream gown.
Also flying the flag for Britain, was Alexa Chung in one of Christopher Kane’s next season’s dresses and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in a satin Burberry number. That’s not forgetting the designer of the week, McQueen’s protégé, Sarah Burton, who wore one of her gowns and dressed Daphne Guinness and Naomi Campbell in head-to-toe feather dresses. Amazing!
