The Style Olympics

       Bearing in mind that the Olympics are coming up and, perhaps more importantly, that I really should be revising for my A2s as opposed to blogging, I have decided this week not to do a full-length article but a post on a recent fashion filled event: the Met Ball. The Met Ball is a chance for fashion's finest to wear fashion's finest as they admire fashion's finest...it is fashion in its finest form - the style equivalent of the Olympics and, with that in mind, below, are my favourite looks from this year's event. An evening which honoured two of fashion's undisputed talents: Prada and Schiaparelli.

Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations

'The Met's Spring 2012 Costume Institute exhibition, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations, explores the striking affinities between Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, two Italian designers from different eras. Inspired by Miguel Covarrubias's "Impossible Interviews" for Vanity Fair in the 1930s, the exhibition features orchestrated conversations between these iconic women to suggest new readings of their most innovative work. Iconic ensembles are presented with videos of simulated conversations between Schiaparelli and Prada directed by Baz Luhrmann, focusing on how both women explore similar themes in their work through very different approaches.'

The Models:

Cara Delevigne - Burberry Prorsum, Joan Smalls - Tom Ford, Doutzen Kroes - Roland Mouret

The Actors:

Jessica Alba - Michael Kors, Douglas Booth - Burberry Prorsum, Dianna Agron - Carolina Herrera

The Couples:

Joan Smalls & Olivier Rousteing - Balmain, Karlie Kloss & Jason Wu - Jason Wu, 
Poppy Delevigne & James Cook - Chanel & Burberry Prorsum

The Veterans:

Gisele Bündchen - Givenchy, Camilla Belle - Ralph Lauren, Linda Evangelista - Prada

The Exhibitionists:

Marc Jacobs - Comme des Garçons, Alexa Chung - Christopher Kane, Beyoncé - Givenchy

These were my favourite looks from the event...the question is though, as we all desperately hope to receive a pair of tickets to New York pronto - which were yours?
