2012 Costume Institute Gala Benefit

The stars stepped out in force last night for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 2012 Costume Institute Gala Benefit exhibition of Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada’s Impossible Conversations. The host of stars included Beyonce, Jessica Alba, Rihanna, Scarlett Johansson, Kirsten Dunst and more, and they all looked so fab that choosing our best styles of the night was nigh-on impossible.

But it was the old school glamour from the likes of Hilary Swank, Jessica Alba, Amy Adams and Amber Heard really caught our eye, as did the simplicity of the slicked-back ponytail styles of Beyonce, Gisele, Rooney Mara and Kate Bosworth.

Claire Palmer, from the Regis Artistic Team, gives her thoughts on who was hot:

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked stunning with her swept-back high-top bun, which was simple yet sophisticated, and very high-fashion. Camilla Belle, meanwhile, with her dark gothic make-up, choose to wear her hair swept lower, showing off her backless dress beautifully.

With many of the celebs choosing to wear either gothic-inspired gowns (such as Rihanna and Cate Blanchett) or, like Camila Belle, futuristic style metallics, the main hair focus was without doubt shine. Structured looks (whether up or down) with a high-gloss finish give a strong edge, yet still very feminine. A trend we will see more of throughout the year.”
