Model as a muse

My predictions came true; Chanel was bellwether in haute couture last night at Met Gala. With Anna in black white lightly printed Chanel in 60-ies style ahead and followed by rising star Edita Vilkeviciute, Diane Kruger, Karen Elson and Kirsten Dunst who was absolutely charming in gypsy queen style..
Haute couture was also pick of Mary Kate Olsen but she was too tiny for Christian Lacroix gown . While Mko was too gothic, Ashley was absolutely stunning in simple white gown of her Row design. Another girl that left me breathless is Bee Schaffer who finally got rid of mum's prints and called Olivier Theyskens. Though she wasn't only cause seems that Olivier was one of the busy designers last night.

Versace Atelier was as usual, on actress; Jessica Biel, Blake Lively, Emma Roberts and one model; Gisele.
Another actresses dresser was Calvin Klein so Collection was on Eva Mendes, Hilary Swank, Isabeli Fontana and Brooke Shields
Calvin's American simplicity can really stand fine jewelry and last night was the real promenade of Chanel’s, Van Cleef & Arpels, Harry Winston, Fred Leighton and Cartier jewels.
Another runned promenade was of Marc Jacob's dresses since he was a host of the party. Theater company was in Marc Jacobs and music royality in Louis Vuitton, Even Vicky Beckham choose him instead of her.
From casting crew I loved Claire Danes in Giorgio Armani Privé, Van Cleef & Arpels emerald earings on Anne Hathaway, Diane Von Furstenberg simple gowns on Eva Longoria and Rosario Dawson
Vintage crew were; Amber Valletta in James Galanos, Paulina Porizkova and Dasha Zhukova in vintage Prada dress

Talking about fashion royality in vintage, Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer was queen in nude silk dress.
Model as a muse
Old school girls were lovely last night;
Iman is icon with reason; she picked tube long gown from Donna Karan in metal silver. No jewelry, just two thin bracelets and charming black nail polish, Nadja was simple lovely in Lanvin and Claudia all hearted in Versace Atelier. Heidi Klum was glowing like always but Tyra Banks really pleasantly suprised me in Badgley Mishka lovely dress. Only one who failed on the test of the old school girls is Cindy Crawford.
Clique gathered around Stella wasn’t made of models, it was sequined and theatrical; Liv Tyler and Kate Hudson (January Jones was also in lovely sequins but by Michael Kors)
Sorry Stella, I don’t like to talk against you, but more charming was Rachel Roy’s clique; Lakshmi Menon and Joy Bryant. But dress on Kate Bosworth saved McCartney

So Roland Mouret was holding Catherine McNeil hand, Alexander Wang hand of Lara Stone, Isaac Mizrahi of Coco Rocha, Richard Chai was holding Kurkova and hand of Raquel Zimmermann was with Proenza Schouler's boys

Daria Werbowy in Balmain, Liya Kebede, Vanessa Traina in Phi, Anja Rubik in Balmain and Caroline Winberg in Emilio Pucci

Agyness Deyn in Burberry Prorsum, Arlenis Sosa in Alberta Ferretti, Miranda Kerr in Jil Sander, Raquel Zimmermann, Anna Jagodzinska
