Red Carpet Fashion - The "Fashion Oscars" - Met Ball 2011

Everbody who's anybody made an appearance at the only place to be seen on Monday evening - The Costume Institute Gala!  
This star studded affair took place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York in celebration of the Museum's new Alexander McQueen's exhibition - Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.
Dubbed as the "Fashion Oscars", the decadent glamour swept across the red carpet in full effect.
Here are some of the best ensembles of the evening:

Eva Mendes sashays in cobalt blue silk pleated Stella McCartney
Zoe Saldana in a bright lemon Calvin Klein number

Gisele completely stole the show with this red fishtail gown from Alexander McQueen. Very few can carry off this type of ensemble with success and maximum impact. Gisele's flat abs and slim waist allows her to do just that with ease

Racy: Kerry Washington stuns in this mint green gown. Although more revealing than I would care to wear, Kerry's perfectly balanced and petite proportions and bodyline allows her to pull this off with coveted class and elegance
Vera Wang and Jennifer Hudson.Vera's dress is a tad too bright for her pale skin tone, but the ruffles compliment her lower body line well and balance out her angular upper-body and shoulders. Jennifer looks positively doll-like

All that glitters: SJP hardly ever disappoints. She sparkles in this floor-length sequinned number by Alexander McQueen
Chanel Iman in lace Dolce and Gabbana. This is not the most flattering length hemline, but as she has very slim shapely legs, what could've been a faux pas, isn't!

 Oh, to have been able to "basque in the glory" of this Glamouratti Squad!
