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...

Calvin Klein should be on her speed dial! Christina Ricci in Zac Posen - If this doesn't demonstrate Wednesday Adams all grown and sexy, I don't know what does! We just had our very own sequel to the movie with just one night of production. J Lo and Marc Anthony in Gucci. Jennifer Lopez...

Before I fainted at the double dose of hotness on the red carpet, Christina Ricci swept passed me arm in arm with Zac Posen. At this point after only seeing a few gowns, I knew this was the one to beat. Turned out my feeling was right. Christina is tiny. Probably the most petite woman...

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...
