YBF Celebs Take Over The 2013 MET Ball: Beyonce, Alicia, Solange, Nicki Minaj, Kerry, Tiger & More!
Another year, another Met Ball. The biggest fashion red carpet & event of the year is currently underway at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, and we've got the YBF celebs who took over the extremely fashionable red carpet. Check out the risk takers who pulled off their looks fabulously, and those who tried....
Once again, for the second year in a row, Beyonce Knowles took over VOGUE's 2013 "PUNK: Chaos To Couture" themed Met Ball tonight rocking an eye catching and sexy look from Givenchy Haute Couture. After last year's shutdown in the purple & black feather & sheer number, Bey, who is serving as this year's honorary co-chair, switched it up with a strapless leather bodice and a printed gold and black skirt with a high slit that exposed matching boots, and came with matching gloves.
Gotta love it.
And she's not the only risk taker who won.
We're absolutely loving Alicia Keys', LaLa's, and Kerry Washington's looks for the night.
Alicia kept her sexy edge in a leather cutout Jason Wu halter dress with a burgundy sequin bottom half and the perfect touch of punk with Robert Lee Morris jewels, a Tonya Hawkes clutch and a streak of red hair.
"Scandal" star Kerry Washington has been on a whirlwind NYC promo tour today hitting up several back to back to back talk shows. And she pulled it together once again tonight in a gorgeous Vera Wang creation. Vera stepped outside the box of her usual simple colors and flowy looks and opted for a structured multimedia dress with a bold metallic print. And it worked perfectly for Kerry.
Kerry and Vera even posed it up with Andre Leon Talley inside looking like a page snatched straight from VOGUE magazine. Serve.
LaLa Anthony looked amazing as she flew solo in this red satin Zac Posen sexy creation. She showed off her new slim & toned bod in a dress that would show every flaw. But in this look, she's got none of those. Perfectly straightened & cut blonde hair as well.
La had some fun with her girl Chanel Iman who rocked a striped J.Mendel frock.
And let's discuss Nicole Richie's surprising silver foxy look shall we? We must say, it works for her. It's a costume gala after all, and she gave just enough "costume" drama. Chick could play Storm in X-Men. The fashion diva rocked Dana Rebecca Designs and a Maria Francesca Pepe ring.
Oh Nicki. Our darling Nicki. Not sure if it's the 80's hair (yeah, we know the theme is Punk but still) or the dark lipstick with it, but this is doing a bit much. The dress isn't doing it for us either. Maybe it's because it's by Tommy Hilfiger and he doesn't strike us as a red carpet formal gown type of designer. But, it's not horrible.
By the way, Tommy gifted her with a Rolex a few hours ago as well that she happily put on Twitter. Nice!
Fashion diva Solange Knowles never gets it wrong. And tonight is no different. The "Losing You" singer stepped outside the box and rocked a printed blue Kenzo dress for, as she called it, an "Afro Punk" look. And we're loving every bit of it. The hair, that slit, and those gorgeous earrings. Loves it!
Rocking a white Thakoon look with an exposed midriff slit and a high split in the skirt, Rita Ora got it all the way right with the hair and makeup as well. Loving this look for her.she paired her look with Nicholas Kirkwood heels and Tasaki for Thakoon necklace, earrings and bracelet. She topped it all off with Cartier rings.
And the athletes also made their way to the huge fashion event:
NY Giants star Victor Cruz kept it dapper in a teal Lanvin dinner jacket with his tux.
And his fiancee Elaina Watley looked great in this very detailed bodice on a dress that was completed with a full black skirt.
NY Knicks star Amar'e Soudemire, who plans to come back from injury in Game 3 later this week, attended in a dapper Calvin Kelin suit with a burgundy jacket full of sheen. Loves it. And his wife Alexis makes pregnancy look ridiculously fabulous as she rocks a frock full of feathers by Giambattista Valli. Gorgeous.
The twosome took pics with Taylor Swift and teammate Tyson Chandler's wife, Kimberly.
And rounding out the athletes, Tiger Woods and his new chick, pro ski racer Lindsay Vonn, made their red carpet debut tonight. No risks taken here, but the white gown is pretty.
Jennifer Lopez got catty in this stunningly glam Michael Kors gown. Very unexpected look by the all American designer, but the risk paid off because Jenny looks amazing. As usual, the cheetah style nude and black print dress looks painted on. And she's freaking flawless.
Kanye's looking pretty good at the Met Ball. All that away-time in Paris is paying off. And he posed it up with his baby moms-to-be Kim Kardashian, who rocked a much talked about (and not in a good way) Ricardo Tisci floral dress with matching gloves and matching shoes.
And if you ask whose grandmother's plastic couch cover got removed in order to use the couch fabric underneath for this dress.....you aint right.
Oh hey ALT! Get it with those pink socks!
Miguel made his way to his first MET Ball Monday night.
Model Tyson Beckford loves himself some bright colors and a bold print. His pink camo Alexander Nash dinner jacket works for him though.
And Eve made her way into the high brow event looking absolutely stunning in leather and lace. Nice to see hip hop getting some love from the fashion crowd.
UPDATE: Angela Simmons made her way to the Met Ball in this gorgeous black & gold patterned gown. She snapped pics of herself getting ready and heading out:
More pics of the YBFers will be updated here as they come in. Stay tuned!
