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!

Nice.

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 :)”

Gorgeous looks.

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!

 

Stay tuned for more pics...........

Solange was best dressed at

Solange was best dressed at this even. Rachel Roy was not. MIA had on a wonderful outfit at the wrong event. And she looks unhappy. Bey failed and in the picture her sis looks like she wants her to get away and stop trying to steal her shine. Everyone else did an ok fashion job. Except Azelia looks tacky at that even with beautiful dresses and AKeys looks a mess.

The more I look at Beyonce's

The more I look at Beyonce's dress, the worst it looks. That supposedly "nude" body suit, is not nude at all really. It's so NOT close to her skin color that it sticks out like a sore thumb. You end up noticing the bodysuit more than you do the dress. That swath of beading between the shoulder and the arm is WRONG WRONG WRONG. It looks like the shoulder strap falling down, and I'm most assured it's not supposed to look that way. Also, do you really want folks looking at the underside of your butt cheeks when you ascend the stairs? NO, you want folks looking at your fierce outfit, so if the "fierce" outfit only has folks looking at your bare backside, then the mission is most certainly NOT ACCOMPLISHED. This is a fail. Beyonce looks very happy though trying.
Yeah I said it!'s picture

You guys really think you're

You guys really think you're pointing out something that she doesn't already know?! She has a team and clearly she knows that the body suit isn't nude! You designer picks you and you wear the dress. It's done for a reason and she clearly pulled it off. The negative comments are only on these black gossip sites. Ironic, right? Crabs...

The best dress of the night

The best dress of the night was definitely Chanel Iman. She wore that dress not the other way around. Like I said before Ri's dress was black again like last year. I think the dress would have pop more had it been a color like red or had she worn killer accessories and some bright hot pumps with that dress. I like the color dress on Solange but I didn't like the style. I like Lala's color dress but I'm not crazy about the style.

Rihanna's dress was flab but

Rihanna's dress was flab but I wished she wore another color other than black because she wore a black dress last year. Beyonce's dress was gorgeous but Beyonce is too short and her body is not ready for a dress like that. It would have looked better on a body like Rihanna or Jennifer Hudson. Both Rihanna and Jennifer have height and a smaller frame to pull off a gorgeous dress like that. Beyonce's hips are much too wide and that tan bodysuit doesn't photographed well under a dress like that.

Has any of you seen a bible

Has any of you seen a bible lately. You'll def got it twisted Beyonce Knowles is not your God. Some of you'll need some serious counseling let this woman alone and get back to your amazing lives enough. If Beyonce want to look a fool let her, if she want to pretend she had a baby let her. What is with the chapter posts.

Your comment is too

Your comment is too long...I'm not reading all of that. Bey has been on plenty of bessed dressed lists. We all agree that the "Texas" in her comes out more often than not. You are making it seem as if Rih gets it right all the time. She does not. She does not even make many of her own decisions in her career and when she styles herself, she fails. She's well managed and not as much of a risk taker as you believe.

My favorites are Solange and Rihanna's (except her hair). Great style and I love their poses. Confidence is really important and they definitely rock their outfits there at the MET Ball. It is nice to see Beyonce as well. She looks stunning!

I really don't get all the

I really don't get all the hate toward Beyonce, like what did she really do to you people. To continue to say she faked being pregnant is just plain stupid and shame on these blogs for continuing to say so.............Anyway..............Beyonce looked FABLOUS!!! Simply gorgeous. Solange was another favorite as well as Chanel Iman. Wow I think from these series of pictures she looked the most edgy, the hottest and so beautiful. She totally rocked it!!!! LaLa looked her usual self would have loved to see a little more pop from her. Paula's boxie shape looks good on that dress, it gave her a waistline.

@GTFOH 11:52 am You are so

@GTFOH 11:52 am You are so RIGHT! It's not that SERIOUS. We all know that Beyonce is GREAT at some things but STYLE is not one of them. That DRESS is a HOT MESS. Beyonce wants to be the talk of the TOWN and Anna Wintour is smart as hell to have her there so the MET BALL can be the TALK of the TOWN. But let's be honest about Anna Wintour and Beyonce shall we? The ONLY reason Beyonce is at this event and Anna has her there is for the good old "quid pro quo." VOGUE announced that Solange and Beyonce was on their BEST DRESSED LIST and ISSUE (which we all know they are not even close to being) list last year and the only REASON that happned was that Anna needed a BIG Entertainment draw to her BALL THIS YEAR. That little exchanged happened for that ONE reason and Anna is calculating if nothing more. Beyonce gave a VEGAS like arrival at the VERY end and it worked. Jennifer Lopez was in LA and unavailable (Anna's first choice). It's about putting on a SHOW for the MET. But Style wise Beyonce is a JOKE. That dress looks a HOT mess but it still generates comments (good and bad) and that is what Anna needed. But Style wise Beyonce FLOPPED. Rihanna is STYLE and she always outpaces Beyonce when it comes to STYLE. PERIOD. Rihanna in TOM FORD is the BEST LOOK of the NIGHT. Chanel Iman is the second best look. You need to get real. If Bey were in VEGAS or TEXAS that Givenchy dress would work but that is NOT why Beyonce is at that event. Beyonce is a big STAR and that is what Anna needed and that is what Anna GOT. But that Dress is HORRID and reflective of Beyonce poor taste. Some people thought Tina designed that dress and that tells you everything you need to know. NEXT!

How do you know jlo was

How do you know jlo was Anna's first choice? Jlo is no A list star anymore so I find it hard to believe that she was Anna's first choice. If you said Jlo was Anna's first choice 5-7 years ago I would have believed you but now....I dont think so.

Beyomce looks fabulous from head to toe. Solange looks great. Alicia Keys is all wrong head to toes. All the real models look fab. Swizzy and Kanye look very dapper. Chanel arriving to Tom Ford looking fabulous. I'm glad Kanye left Kim K. At home she would have take all his thunder.
