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...........

Rihanna has a sense of humor, that hair made me laugh and laugh and laugh. Who did that to that child's hair? Looks like she was getting prepped for a touch up, got all her hair separated into parts, got drunk then said fuck it, I'll perm it tomorrow and wear it like this tonight! Oh I just laughed and laughed and laugh.

With the exception of tacky

With the exception of tacky M.I.A., everyone looked nice. But Beyonce stole the show because 1-of that unique and couture gown & 2-the Fab way she wore it. Gorgeous! Solange looked fresh & spring-y so I'd give her 2nd place. Lala & Carmelo were my fave couple...and Paula Patton's FAB earrings make up for that prom dress. It was pretty but boring.

Wow not feeling Bey dress.

Wow not feeling Bey dress. I'll look for a video to see if it look different. She has a lot of moles, I did start getting my moles and the rings on the neck until I was 35.

Solange and Rosario looked

Solange and Rosario looked flawless and beautiful. They won my award for the night. lol Bey is just Bey she's glammed out, nothing new her, nothing she does or wear to "me" anymore is that awesome. Still bored with Beyonce... Her dress reminds me of the (main character) girl's "fire" dress on Hunger Games Movie. But her little sister's (Solonge) style is SOOO "on point" I love almost everything Solonge wears. Rashida Jones, Rosario Dawson and Paula Patton are just naturally breath taking to me. Rhianna too, but Rhi looks very sad (her eyes) in this picture, she is usually drop dead goergous in her pics, but there is something going on in these pic. Also she had a little tummy pouch in that dress, which is unsual for her, she is usually flat and tight all the way around.

Rihanna looks ELEGANT. It's

Rihanna looks ELEGANT. It's really all about the Silouette and the details. The hair and especially the NAILS set's Rihanna off and it's a great silhouette. Rihanna made a BOLD choice and it 100% works. Beyonce went BIG which is how she typically does things. I just think Bey looks too Show GIRL. The best DRESSED of the Entertainers is Rihanna HANDS DOWN. But the best dressed at the BALL is my Style ICON....Camilla Belle. Camilla was BEAUTIFUL. So was Kate Bosworth. But Rihanna is the HOTTEST. Beyonce wearing Givenchy is expected and too garish. I wish Beyonce had better taste in clothes.

I wanted to burst into tears when i seen beyonce's dress....it was a sad desperation pull. It looked tacky from the back and showed too much goods. I know the men loved it but as a mom, it was a hell no. Her body is very nice and could have been put into a classy dress.

Rihanna's body and dress

Rihanna's body and dress looks nice but she looks a little disheveled from the neck up. Something is off and I hope she's ok.

I don't like beyonce dress

I don't like beyonce dress really at all I mean it's okay, not her face hair and everything else or gorgeous but she is a very pretty woman so that' s always going to be up to par. Now I loved Rihanna dress and her in it, but that hair was terrible what was she thinking? she could have really shut it down if her hair was right. Everyone else looks nice, no other dresses really stood out to me they were more basic safe choices. I see Solange back to wearing weave, lol.

Beyonce is obviously

Beyonce is obviously talented, and seems like a nice person, but y'all are all drunk, delusional, or crazy if you thing a) that dress is cute/fiyah/fierce/etc. or b) she looks good in said god awful dress. Get off Beyonce's d*ck! You are not on her payroll...

Wow.Beyonce. Just wow. That

Wow.Beyonce. Just wow. That gown is stunning on her. Her shape is beautiful. In love with her look. Rihannas dress is sick. Not feeling the hair or makeup. Solange looks spectacular. The gown is chic,simple and fits perfectly. MIA has great hair and Im baffled as to why she chose the wig. Im feeling her skirt suit, I just wish she paired it with a bad as belt, killer shoes and a clutch. As for who know Janelle Monae had a small waist... I mean anyone with eyes could see that.She is FAR from a big woman and wears fitted clothes all of the time. Just because she isnt baring her mid drift and wearing extremely tight dresses doesnt mean she doesnt have a small waist. Im trying to figure out how to style my hair like hers. She is beautiful.

Rihanna looked the epitome of

Rihanna looked the epitome of fashion. I give the evening to her. That was a bold choice but carried with perfection. That's what the MET fashion ball is all about. Bey on the other hand (sigh), bless her heart, this is a typical situation when bad clothing choices happen to good people. High fashion is not something Bey is known for, she often looks good but she's definitely not wearing this dress, it seems the dress is rather wearing her. Solange looks regal, and Paula Patton...needless say more??

Can't believe I'm saying this

Can't believe I'm saying this Solange looks about the best. Beyonce, and everyone else don't likey. M I A looks like a Muppet. Paula love the earrings but pepto bismo pink is only right for little girls. Rosario something is not right with all that leather. Maybe if it was winter. Rhianna nails are not cute and she looks exhausted, time to slow it down girl. Beyonce them eyebrows need some thinning and the makeup looks homemade because they forgot her neck.

The chick has long hair. Why

The chick has long hair. Why is this unfathomable to you people? Lots of people, Black, White, Asian, or whatever have long hair. And, if she wore a hair piece, so what? Who told you to hate hair extensions? What is so bad about it? I mean these people wear makeup, nail polish, accessories, etc to LOOK GOOD. If wearing hair extensions adds to the look, so be it. I feel like soon I'm going to start hearing "Her teeth aren't naturally white, she has to brush them to get them like that."

Ok see some of you people are way too delusional and obsessed with Beyonce. Liking her and her music is one thing but thinking this woman is God is another. You do know that she is human and not God right? (Apparently not). SMH..... Anyway, I think Solange, LaLa, and Paula look very nice. Everyone else looks a mess and tacky.
