Stars from Glee, Twilight, and other young Hollywood actresses also went to the 2012 Met Gala wearing edgy, princessy, and classic dresses from some of the well-known designers in the fashion industry. Check out what Kristen Stewart, Lily Collins, Dakota Fanning, Emma Roberts, Dianna Agron, Nina Dobrev, Ashley Greene, Lea Michele, Shailene Woodley and Emma Stone wore to the event…
Kristen Stewart, who is the face of Balenciaga ‘s newest perfume, wore a color-block dress from the Fall 2012 collection of Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière. The knee-length leather and silk dress featured digitally-printed black and silver snake on the wool jacquard bodice, a v-neckline, and a pencil leather skirt with blue, dark purple and pink color-blocking design. Kristen left the black leather gloves (from the runway version). Her black Balenciaga lace-up pumps (from the Fall 2012 collection) were just as edgy as her dress, but would probably get a love/hate reaction from you fashion lovers.
Lily Collins chose a romantic Valentino sheer lace gown (from the Spring 2012 Haute Couture collection), which featured long sleeves, lavender floral underlay and a girly bow waistband. She paired it up with the gray Valentino “Shine Vison” snakeskin clutch and added glitz to her outfit with H. Stern jewelry.
Dakota Fanning also looked like a real-life princess at the Met Gala. The actress chose the lavender Louis Vuitton tulle and organza gown, which featured floral ribbon embroidery on her skirt. As always, Dakota wore minimal makeup and styled her blonde hair only with a girly clip. She added glitz to her dress with Fred Leighton jewelry.
Emma Roberts was a breath of fresh air, as she opted for a marigold custom-made Escada gown. The strapless silk gown featured a peplum detail, a short train, and a sapphire satin belt that nipped her waist. Emma paired the classic-looking dress with a sparkly Swarovski clutch and the Bvlgari “Serpenti” 2-row diamond bracelet.
Dianna Agron’s picture doesn’t do justice to her gorgeous dress, which was one of the best of the night. The “Glee” star was dressed in a green Carolina Herrera silk organza gown, which featured a draped peplum and a matching green snakeskin wrap belt (both from the Fall/Winter 2012 Collection. She paired it up with silver Sergio Rossi “Cachet” leather peep-toe pumps and accessorized with Judith Leiber “Everglades Avenue” crystal clutch and Fred Leighton jewelry.
Nina Dobrev, who was also one of the best dressed last night, opted to go with a stunning Donna Karan gown. Her one-shoulder, black and gold Donna Karan Atelier gown featured a long train that simply popped up from the red carpet. She let the gown do the talking and kept her accessories minimal, opting for just a pair of H.Stern star earrings.
Kristen Stewart wasn’t the only one who was showing off an outfit from a brand she represents. Donna Karan ambassador Ashley Greene also rocked her brand’s dress, as she was dressed in a white custom-made Grecian-inspired Donna Karan Atelier gown, which featured a stone sequined bustier, silk chiffon pleats and draped skirt with a train. She paired it up with a metallic clutch and silver drop earrings.
Lea Michele went with an edgier dress, opting for a dark blue Diane von Furstenberg sequined, which featured a fringed necklace, a thigh-high slit and a sexy cleavage-baring v-neckline. She paired it up with Christian Louboutin tweed slingback heels (from the Fall 2012 collection), Diane Von Furstenberg “Tonda” clutch (from the Fall/Winter 2012 Collection) and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.
Shailene Woodley took the knee-length Christopher Kane floral leather dress (From the Fall 2012 collection) and turned it into a full-length gown for the Met Gala. The gown featured colorful wire and floral embroidery with a contrasting black leather panel details. She finished off with no other accessories, except for diamond stud earrings.
We almost didn’t recognize Emma Stone last night at the event since we were excited to see an edgy dress from the actress, but instead saw her wearing a very “cute” Lanvin outfit custom-made by Alber Elbaz. The mini red satin dress featured crystal flowers embroidered throughout the dress. Emma paired it up with custom-made black Lanvin crystal hair pins and a black pair of Lanvin H11 satin pumps (from the Fall/Winter 2011 Ready-to-Wear Collection).
Although these younger celebrities didn’t go with “in your face” bold dresses like the 10 Head-turning Dresses at the event, some of them did dress pretty well. Which of these young actresses dressed the best? Sound off below…
