Fave Looks from Met Gala 2012

The Met Ball was tonight and O.M.G. was there ever fashion. What is the Met Gala you ask? Well I took the initiative to copy and paste the Wikipedia entry right here for you: "The Costume Institute Gala (or Costume Institute Ball), known as the Met Ball and nicknamed the "Oscars of the East Coast", is an annual ball that celebrates the annual opening of the Metropolitan Museum's (The Met) fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute. The red carpet evening where celebrities arrive dressed to impress is described as the fashion industry's "Night of Nights". Fashion industry experts and style magazines consider the event, which is hosted by Vogue, to be the fashion world's best red carpet event. It is regarded as the top annual social event in New York City. The event has been an annual affair at the Met since 1948 (the year in which the Costume Institute was founded), but it has been held in different parts of the museum over the years."
So what did I love fashion wise?
