Met Costume Institute Gala Top Ten Dresses

The Met Ball is the equivalent of the World Cup for fashion.  Gowns are planned for weeks, sometimes months, in advance of the big night and the world’s greatest celebrities walk the red carpet showcasing the best designs our world has to offer. This is a night where women get to play dress up purely for the sake of dressing up. There is no stress involved in wondering whether or not you will have to step on stage to accept an award. The only thing you need to worry about is walking the red carpet without tripping over yourself (totally something I would do).  Over the years we have seen great dresses, forgettable dresses and dresses so horrific we still have nightmares about them.  As we try to keep things positive around here (and to keep us all out of fashion psychotherapy) we thought a recap of the ten best gowns from years past was in order! Enjoy and check back with us next Tuesday for a recap of all the best dresses for 2010’s Met Costume Institute Gala!
