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...........

These girls stand no chance when Beyonce enters the room.... bwahahaha! Just GORGEOUSSSSSS!!! Simple pony tail and still the most beautiful woman in the room. I feel you Azelia Banks ... I would have burst into tears over her sheer BEAUTY! SN: Can we have a moment of silence for that tragic rat trap on the top of Rihanna's head? This girl is clearly on drugs.

Beyonce's dress is so

Beyonce's dress is so predictable, she always wear those mermaid fish tail dresses. Solange was the standout tonight. Rihannas hair spoiled her look or else she would have been flawless.

It's always been obvious to

It's always been obvious to me that janelle monae has a banging body, though she's always been conservative in her style of dress--yes, there is a way to let the world know you have a banging body without wearing spandex or lycra all the time!

lala looked awesome and so

lala looked awesome and so did melo,kanye (minus the mean mug )and bruno. Beyonce looked awesome as well I love the less is more look she knew her dress was a statement in itself so she went light with the makeup and didnt wear no jewels she hit it right on the head. Solange my favorite knowles worked that yellow as always I think she knows thats her signature color and it does her justice. Paula you didnt need those chadalier earrings they were to much. RiRi what can I say you are a fashion icon whether we like it or not and that thing on your head was a no no I just wanted to take a pair of clippers and give you a amber rose that hair threw me way off so off that I didnt even want to look at what she had on and those red bottoms looked kind of ran down as well you should know better riri because when events like this come along yu always come correct from head to toe I guess there's a 1st time for everything

Everyone looks great. I like

Everyone looks great. I like Beyonce's dres, I dont love it. I think Solange is more elegant. I just love seeing Alicia and Swizz they just refuse to conform and I simply love that. Rihanna is beautiful as always. Remember people, it is a costume gala, these folks were dressed by the designers and their teams, these are the people that send the models down the runways, hence Rihanna's hair. If you have ever been too, or seen a runway show, there is nothing normal about the way that those women and men are dressed. Kanye is missing his Kimmie, cheer up I'm sure she will be back soon. He looks handsome non the less.

Didn't care for Bey's dress

Didn't care for Bey's dress at all. Rhianna's crocodile dress was HOT, but that hair was ATROCIOUS. Solange looks great in canary, Paula was predictable.

Its not like the paps ran up on you trying to snap a pic, you were at an event lol. I guess getting your pic taken is something else "you don't like" lol.

Rundown Seriously why is

Rundown Seriously why is Beyonce posing like that? She does that on every red carpet. She looks like one of those fake ass holiday edition barbies,and that's not a compliment. Rihanna looks a hot ass mess especially in the 5th pic. Paula and La La dresses are super cute. Rashida needs to give her granny back her dress. Solange's dress is very cute. For rachel roy to be a designer, you would think she'd be on point, but she totally missed the bulls eye. Swiss and alicia need to go sit their fake political looking ass down somewhere. Looking like John Edwards and Rielle Hunter. Kanye looks so f--k--g stupid. Janelle Monae looks pretty but she needs to get rid of that damn bazooka joe ass hairdo already. THE END!!!!!

I gotta be honest....Cray Bey

I gotta be honest....Cray Bey makes Rihanna look pedestrian. LaLa looks wonderful and she and Melo have matching EYEBALLS since Melo is wearing the giant glasses. Even Solange looks friggin' good (smh)

Beyonce's dress does not

Beyonce's dress does not photograph well. I am sure it is very beautiful in person, but there's a reason why women don't wear all the way sheer dresses. I give her an A for bouncing back after the baby and for her hair/make up.

Bruno Mars really looks like

Bruno Mars really looks like a troll in that mini Elvis suit, but the bruh is talented. Out of all the events you could get your groupie on, Kim is a no-show with Kanye? #MissedOpportunity. That hair Rihanna has cracks me up, lol, this is the urban Riri i missed. Funny thing is, her dress looks more high fashion that Beyonce, but because this event is moreso in favor of Beyonce to relaunch her, Rihanna has to settle for number 2.

Bey was showing yall her ass

Bey was showing yall her ass to kiss. I wish the Queen would have worn black diamond studd earrings. I'm tired of the no earrings look and I'm tired of that pose with her hands on her hips, she looks like a barbie. Rih's dress was fire. I really wish it were shorter, it looks heavy to me. her nails are horrid and she looks like she and her bff did her hair. My Girls Bey and Rih killed it.
