2012 MET BALL: Beyonce, Rihanna, Alicia Keys & More Get GLAMOUROUS For VOGUE'S Event Of The Year
Tonight (Monday) in New York City, the A-list put on their most glamourous looks and strutted alongside their designer dates at the 2012 MET Ball. See pics of Beyonce, Solange, Paula Patton, Rashida Jones and more inside....
Held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Anna Wintour & VOGUE's event of the year was a night full of glamour and beauty. New mom Beyonce pretty much killed the carpet in this curve hugging floral embroidered sheer black gown which shifted into a bright purple feathered train. Delicious.
The non stop workouts are paying off. The stunning diva's gown was designed and that purple train is it.
Gorge. Rapper Azealia Banks was so star struck she tweeted, "I just met Beyonce and immediately burst into tears. ... I'm so embarrassed"
Bey looked phenomenal!
She even revealed on the carpet that she's pretty set on having more babies...at some point.
And Rihanna didn't look so bad herself. Well fashion wise. This hair is...
Rihanna wore a floor length crocodile Tom Ford gown with a back slit and deep back V which showed off her slim and toned frame.
When you walk into a room rocking head to toe croc....you shut it down. Just wish the hair was up to par too.
Paula Patton arrived in a pale pink strapless organza style Vera Wang gown that didn't wow us. Feels very bridal as Vera always does. But she looked pretty nonetheless.
Those earrings, on the other hand, just made us gasp. Gorge!
Posing with his lovely wife LaLa Anthony, Carmelo looked dapper in a custom Rag And Bone tux. And LaLa rocked electric blue floor length gown by Zac Posen. Fits her perfectly so we're loving it.
Meanwhile, Rashida Jones looked innocent in a floral Tory Burch dress. Very cute for summer.
Solange arrived as the date of good friend Rachel Roy, and is wearing the designer of course. Canary yellow has always worked for little sis Knowles. An eye-popping stunning look completed with curls and a dazzling box clutch.
And was spotted leaving with her big sis.
Before the event.....
Fashion forward couple Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys tweeted this pic saying, “On way to MET BALL with the Queen oh yes we're Busy body's :)”
Bruno Mars looked pretty spiffy in head to toe Prada.
And Kanye West wore a nice pair of pants that didn't fall down for a change and his typical scowl for the cameras.
Janelle Monae wore her signature black with a jeweled waistline and looked amazing. Who knew she had this tiny cute waist!
Rick Ross tweeted a pic from the gala alongside celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson...but sipped wine instead of Ciroc!
Rosario Dawson wore a fitted leather gown by Calvin Klein.
Umm...did M.I.A. even try? Her lackluster outfit was Stella McCartney.
Model Liya Kebede, Tory Burch, Rashida Jones and Brooklyn Decker all posed for a fab pic as they rocked Ms. Burch's designs.
Chanel Iman arrived with Tom Ford and wore one of his fab gowns. Loving the chicness of the sheer neck.
Giants baller Victor Cruz also got suited up for the party with his long time girlfriend in all white.
And despite having an injured hand, Amar'e Stoudemire attended as well with his girlfriend & baby's mother.
Rapper Azealia Banks arrived with Alexander Wang and rocked a custom design from him.
And Joan Smalls, wearing Balmain, clung to her boo Olivier Rousteing. Loving everything about this hot mini dress.
Model Jourdan Dunn rocked a strapless white lace Burberry gown and kicked it with Azealia Banks and her model friend Cara Delevingne.
And Defensive Player of The Year, Knicks baller Tyson Chandler, popped up on the carpet with his wife Kimberly. He rocked a custom Waraire Boswell suit. While Kimberly rocked a red strapless Valentino jumpsuit, handpicked by Anna Wintour!
