I didn't expect supermodel Bar Rafaeli to be one of my highlights of the 2011 Met Gala, but here she is, looking totally stunning in one of the most intricately beaded Reem Acra dresses that I've ever seen. It's shiny and art deco and utterly fabulous – a great choice for a fashion-forward...

Next in the list of 2011 Met Gala attendees who disappointed me a little bit is Modern Family star Sofia Vergara, who aged herself a few years in a painted, somewhat traditional Carolina Herrera gown. Yawn. Vergara is a big fan of Herrera's designs and often wears her clothes to events, and...

I feel like I've said this a million times, but wowee zowee, Jennifer Hudson sure has gotten skinny. Her success is worth every penny that Weight Watchers paid her to be a brand ambassador, particularly when she's being photographed looking fantastic at events as posh as the 2011 Met Gala....

The photos that we can post on BagThatStyle are limited by the photo service with which we have a contract, so unfortunately, I don't have any photos of Cristina Ricci's incomparably gorgeous Zac Posen couture masterpiece that she wore to walk the red carpet at the 2011 Met Gala. Yes, that's...

The 2011 Met Gala would have been a great place for her to come out as a style star, if that's what she wanted, but maybe she'll have another shot next year. That's not to say that her red Michael Kors column dress was bad – it was nice! Very pretty. But it was safe, and I'd rather have...

Ralph Lauren was a popular choice for the red carpet at the 2011 Met Gala celebrating the 'Alexander McQueen: Savage Garden' exhibit. Here we have Jessica Alba and husband Cash Warren, Kings of Leon singer, Caleb Followill and fiancée Lily Aldridge, Dylan Lauren andLauren Bush, wife of David...

Maternity is so, so hard to do on a red carpet, particularly at an event that encourages eccentric, high-fashion outfits like the 2011 Met Gala. With so many people wearing archival samples, what's a woman with child to do? Exactly what Jessica Alba did, of course: Glow. Literally. Wearing a...

J Lo and Marc Anthony in Gucci. Jennifer Lopez wore a Gucci gown from the Fall 2011 RTW Collection. It looks good on her, but the opening of the dress in front to too open; perhaps its just the way she is standing Zoe Saldana in Calvin Klein - I am always a huge Calvin Klein fan, and...

invited me to tag along as he prepared to make his grand entrance on the red carpet at the 2011 Met Gala with his friends. I met them at The Carlyle Hotel in New York which wasn't too far from the venue. In the lobby I saw many guys in dark black suits carrying garments bags, no doubt...

Ladies, this is another instance in which I wish I had more pictures to give you, but the few shots that I have of Miranda Kerr's lovely ballet-inspired Marchesa frock at the 2011 Met Gala are pretty gorgeous indeed. Can we say Black Swan anyone? Of course, in this dress, Miranda is clearly...
