met gala 2011

It was a star-studded red carpet affair at The Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s annual Costume Institute Gala Monday night. A-Listers came out in showstopping designer threads to celebrate the museum’s latest style exhibit, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, in memory of the couturier who passed away last February. A svelte Rihanna sported a crimson side braid, parading her hotness in a embroidered lace Stella McCartney gown while timeless beauty icon, Iman, dazzled in a gold sequined jumpsuit from the designer as well.
