THIS is a hard one, so we need your help. There were so many fantastic fashion looks on show at the 2012 Met Gala, that we can't decide which well-dressed attendee deserves the best dressed award. So... we are asking for your expert opinions! Gwyneth Paltrow floored us with her chic Prada halter, but then again Emily Blunt's Calvin Klein sheath ranked pretty high in the chic stakes, too. Beyoncé and Kate Bosworth both worked the feathered trend, in Givenchy and Prada respectively. Then there was the cutie-patootie battle between Carey Mulligan who got all avant-garde on us in a gold-silver Prada frock, and Ginnifer Goodwin whose Monique Lhuillier tangerine dream knocked us for six.

It's time to break down the top red carpet trends from the 2012 Met Gala red carpet. Metallics might have been the big story of the night, with Karolina Kurkova stunning in a slim-fitting gown and matching turban courtesy of Rachel Zoe, Michael Kors dressing Jessica Alba like a golden goddess, and Camilla Belle looking every bit the '20s siren in Ralph Lauren. There were also plenty of plumes, from Diane Kruger's purple Prada gown to Kate Bosworth's flirty Prada dress. It continues to be the year of the peplum, while the next big trend in sexy dresses appears to be all about showing some sexy back — case in point, Rihanna. Don't forget about the orange crush, textural play and feather fetish we spotted, too! So many trends, so little time. Step inside to start your Met Gala red carpet revision.
A trend that we've been banging on about for you to try out for Winter has slipped up the fashion hierarchy, and is having a major influence on red carpet looks, in particular today's glam 2012 Met Gala offerings. Texture, and not in the faux fur variety, was all over the red rug — a myriad of guises. Rihanna wore an alligator stamped Tom Ford sheath, Leighton Meester experimented with Marchesa tulle, Rooney Mara contrasted leather with lace in Givenchy, Carey Mulligan worked a metallic fish-scaled Prada number and Cate Blanchett was feathered head-to-toe courtesy of Alexander McQueen. Take a gander at the plethora of way celebrities incorporated this tactile trend into their Met Gala looks.
