A red carpet event that its main objective is to bring you the most fashion-forwarded, star-filled, fashion-designing crowd? Yes, please! And, where can I get my ticket??

Last night's MET Gala soirée in honor of the late great Alexander McQueen was everything it should be: sparkle, shine, tulle, taffeta-- too much-- so much, that only an event in his honor would be appropriate for such extravagance & fluff. The fashion world looks forward to this annual night where fantasy takes precendence over conformity.

Pictures speak a thousand words, so rather than analyzing a red carpet where the only rule is to outdo the 'competition', I'm going to let the photos do the talking.
