Best Dressed- Met Ball 2012

On Monday, fashion's elite and Hollywood's favorite starlets gathered to fete the opening of the exhibit Impossible Conversations, which features designs by Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada. As one can imagine, this results in fabulous red carpet moments (and some straight up crazy ones, but I'm just going to keep it positive here and focus on my favorites!). These five ladies had my favorite looks this year. 

I loved the futuristic vibe of Carey Mulligan's Prada dress. She was the event co-chair this year, and she certainly stood out in a sea of ballgowns. 

The bold citrusy hue of Solange Knowles dress was phenomenal on her skin-tone, and the peplum was perfectly on trend. It's hard to outshine Beyonce, but dare I say, Solange easily did last night! 

Camilla Belle looked simply stunning- I loved the dress, the sleek hair and the super-bold lip. I wish her face makeup was slightly less dewey, but that's really splitting hairs. She always looks poised and confident on the red carpet- she wears the clothes, but the clothes don't wear her. 

I was watching the livestream of the red carpet online last night, and when they panned over to Nina Dobrev, I actually said "Wow" out loud- this dress was a showstopper in every sense of the word. I've yet to see a celeb in Donna Karan on a runway in a dress I didn't like. The woman can do no wrong! 

Tory Burch wore Tory Burch- surprise, surprise! A lot of the blogs and websites I read didn't like her dress at all, but there was something fresh and unique about it, and I just really, really liked it- the color is great on her, and I love the contrasting green earrings, as well.
