Of the current crop of supermodels Coco Rocha is one of my favorites mostly because she looks like a modern woman with a pin-up twist. Coco is a muse for New York based designer Zac Posen and the two almost always make magic together when she steps out on a red carpet. After a kind of disappointing look last year wearing a Givenchy jumpsuit previously owned by Elizabeth Taylor with hot pink extensions, I am hoping to see her go back to the Posen looks. This black mermaid gown from the Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2013 gown is an extremely bold statement which is perfect for this event. Finish this look with Christian Louboutin ‘Lady Max’ black sandals and a silver Kotur mirror clutch along with a bold teased faux mohawk and a bold red lip and Coco will stun yet again on the red carpet at the Met Ball.
Doutzen Kroes has been a red carpet powerhouse in the past few years wearing several stunning ensembles. For this years Met Ball I would love to see her wear this green leaf print Giambattista Valli Fall 2012 Couture gown. I think that this gown would be perfect for the 28 year Dutch model for this event. The Met Ball kick starts the month of May for Doutzen who after this event will travel to the French Riviera for the Cannes Film Festival. This gown is a bold statement that will fit in perfectly at the ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’ themed gala. Finish with a black minaudiere and some black Christian Louboutin sandals as well as a diamond cuff and an old Hollywood hairstyle to complete this amazing ensemble.
Gisele Bundchen always attends the Met Gala but has not really wowed me since the 2008 ‘Superheros: Fashion and Fantasy’ gala where she wore a stunning blush pink Versace gown.Well for this years gala I am hoping that Gisele returns to that partnership and wears this stunning lavender Atelier Versace Fall 2012 Couture gown. This is a stuning gown and I am surpirsed that it hasn’t been snatched up for a red carpet yet, like most of the rest of this collection. This gown paired with a gold minaudiere, gold strappy sandals and Gisele’s sleek tresses and she will find herself back on top of the best dressed lists.
Iman has been absent from the red carpet for a while and that is a sad thing because no one brings diva glam to the red carpet like Iman. I am hoping to see the classic supermodel make her red carpet return at the Met Ball this year. For her return I would love to see her wear this burnt orange halter Zac Posen Fall 2013 RTW gown with a peplum waist. This gown moved so well on the runway and the model was able to maneuver the stairs with ease, which is important as the Met red carpet starts at the street level and travels up the stairs of the Museum. Finish the look with a Lanvin tone on tone brown ‘Sea Breeze’ minaudiere, a pair of bronze peep toe pumps, a full hairstyle and a fresh face would complete this ensemble.
