American Woman- The Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute Benefit

I design a home with the client in mind.  I want their personality to shine through rather than mine. Their friends should walk in and know who lives there rather than ask “who designed your home?” The same goes with fashion, and last nights Met Ball had a number of personalties dressed by the best designers in the world. Some of my favorite modern American looks below:

Calvin Klein designer Francisco Costa created simple, classic, and timeless gowns for Zoe Saldana and Diane Kruger.

Mr America himself, Michael Kors escorted Brooke Shields in one of his creations.

Another Kors masterpiece.

Rachel Weisz in Oscar De La Renta ( Oprah was also wearing Oscar)

Country singer Taylor Swift couldn’t look more all-American in Ralph Lauren

American model, Amber Valetta in RM by Roland Mouret. I love the clean classic lines.

America’s sweetheart, Kate Hudson glams it up in Stella McCartney. Glimmering gold, clean lines, and a tan.

Kerry Washington wore a bold red Thakoon number ( one of the First Lady’s favorite designers).

Though this may not be a dress I would wear…who looks better than Gisele and Tom Brady??

Barry Diller and Diane Von Furstenburg.  I love that she wore stars!

Nicole Richie paired her darker locks with a Marc Jacobs gown.

Not all were in gowns… Alexa Chung wore Philip Lim. Perfection.

How stunning does Camilla Belle look in her Jason Wu gown?

Sienna Miller wore Pucci. I love the low cut top with the fuller bottom.

Naomi Watts in Lanvin. I love the color, the shoulder, and her clutch.

The ladies of Marchesa and Eva Longoria.  Georgina Chapmans feathers may have been a bit warm for last night but the dress is still stunning.

America’s Gossip Girl, Blake Lively looked gorgeous in Marchesa as well. I love the shoulder and the hem of the dress.  Her Christian Louboutin shoes are also fabulous.

Channeling her inner Betty Draper, January Jones donned an embroidered YSL dress with more modern make-up.
