T Styled Me’s Best & Worst Styled Picks: Met Ball 2012

The Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met Ball) is the Fashion World’s annual equivalent of the Oscar Awards. This year’s theme was Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations (basically honoring these Italian designers)

Camilla’s elegant and effortless look in this Ralph Lauren gown is emphasized by her subtle (and flawless) make up and I’m really warming up to this sultry wine stained lip colour. She has kept her accessories and jewellery minimal (yet still matching) and I like how the feminine side hair-part kept the focus on the sleek neckline of her beaded gown.

This look would best suit girls with a slim and tall body shape (especially those with a longer torso) and the colouring of the dress would complement girls with darker features. So if your hair colour is dark like Camilla’s and you have a fair to olive skin tone, a dress in this colour would look great on you!

Sorry Kirsten! I just felt the colour combination screamed Mrs Santa Claus. I think this outfit didn’t work for her specifically because the colour of the outfit clashed with her fair skin and blonde hair. Not a fan personally of the shape but it would probably work better on someone with a more shapely figure and curves. She also looks kind of sad in these pics. Did you like this outfit?

Carey Mulligan’s Custom made Prada Dress

Carey’s bespoke dress topped many of the best dressed lists this year so I thought I’d add it in to get your thoughts. What I certainly DO like is the fact that the dress is up for auction on Ebay and 100% of the proceeds will go to Oxfam. I think the quiff she’s sporting really suits her petite face – she’s totally rocking the hairstyle.
