Last night, the 2012 Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibition took place. Compared to last year, the event was thin on some of our favorites from the sports world, but the few in attendance didn’t disappoint. Let’s see who made the cut!
It’s virtually impossible for Gisele to do wrong. She looked effortless in this black beaded Givenchy Haute Couture gown by Riccardo Tisci. Her husband, Tom Brady, doesn’t look too bad himself. The velvet tuxedo jacket is a very nice touch. His hair though….no comment.
No plus one invite for Mark Sanchez, I see. I kid. I kid. Tebow looked perfectly fine in his Ralph Lauren Purple Label tux. I do, however, wish he stepped out of his conservative comfort zone a tiny bit and embraced the evening by adding a dash of color to his look. The standard black and white look is very safe. Wishful thinking? I suppose. Regardless, the fit is great and that’s all you can really ask from men at these events.
Melo and Lala look absolutely divine. Lala, specifically, is stunning in her electric blue Zac Posen gown. The blue hue pops against the backdrop of the red carpet. Also, the detailed bodice accentuates her slim waist and bountiful bosom, forming an enviable hourglass figure. Melo, rocking his signature specks, doesn’t look too shabby himself. The suit looks great, but the black velvet slippers with gold embroidery adds the right amount of pizzazz to his look. I just wish Lala would’ve helped Melo with his crooked bowtie.
Rooney Mara makes the list because she’s sports royalty twice over. She has family ties to the Rooney family of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Mara family of the NY Giants. Like Gisele and Beyonce (below), Rooney also wore Givenchy Couture last night. But because she never strays from black gowns and an ice princess expression, this look feels very familiar on her. Too been there, done that. I would’ve liked it if she departed from her signature look and tried something different. Oh well.
And last, but certainly not least is Ms. Beyonce Knowles-Carter. Wow. Despite flying solo, Beyonce made her first formal red carpet appearance since giving birth, in a bold and daring number. Although it’s similar to Rooney Mara’s dress, Beyonce owned this look. Its ultra sheer sexiness, floral beading, and dramatic feathered ombre train perfectly highlighted the new mom’s hot post-baby bod. With such an eye-catching gown, Beyonce smartly went light on the hair and makeup. A sleek ponytail with a side part and soft makeup perfectly completed her look. My only regret is that we couldn’t sneak a peek at her shoes, which I’m sure were also killer.
See you next year!
