I always do this to myself - instead of listing all the dresses (and their celeb owners) who caught my eye on the red carpet, I only allow myself to pick 3 (the Oscars and Golden Globes were particularity tough). Picking 3 from the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Met Gala 2011 has given me a headache. There were so many great nods to McQueen, either with a stunning McQueen archieve piece or just capturing his decadent, dramatic style. Gisele Bundchen made a great effort in a red fishtail McQueen gown, but the fit on the bust really let it down and Ashley Olsen nearly won my heart in vintage Dior (those sleeves!) but I wasn't a fan on the splits in the skirt.
After much debating (with myself, like a crazy person) I have picked my top three Red Carpet Queens - Diane Kruger in Jason Wu, Liv Tyler in Givenchy and Christina Ricci in Zac Posen.
Diane Kruger is rocking the heck out of the reality simple Jason Wu dress and has a look on her face that screams 'I know how good I look', and I'm not arguing, Diane!
Liv Tyler is wearing a dress from one of my favourite Givenchy collections, that so far has been worn (and worn well) by Cate Blanchett and Florence Welch. She looks so statuesque and ethereal.
Christina Ricci - you sometimes get it wrong, and other times you get it so right! This Zac Posen dress is Wednesday Adams all grown up. I'm amazed how someone so petite can carry this dramatic and voluminous style off with such gumption. Major kudos!
