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...

There's nothing worse at an important event than a fussy outfit that you have to constantly adjust, and it looks like Rihanna might have fallen into that trap at the 2011 Met Gala. Instead of coming off the back and trailing behind her, the train on her lace and mesh Stella McCartney gown...

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...

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. Jenny Craig, eat your heart out. Hudson looks virtually flawless in this dual colored Vera Wang...

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...

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...

From vintage dresses, to uber couture feathered works of art, the mind of McQueen, and the just-as-creative work of Sarah Burton, were featured brilliantly on the Red Carpet. Looks from top left to bottom right Naomi Campbell Spring 2004 Sarah Jessica Parker Fall 2005 Gisele Bundchen...

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...

Doutzen Kroes looked radiant in red Giambattista Valli. Stella McCartney (and belts!) were pretty popular last night. I love the colour of Eva Mendes' 70s-ish blue gown. I like Brooklyn Decker's hair better longer, but the bright pink of her simple Michael Kors gown is great...
