Ball Vs. Ballroom Who Wore It Best? Met Gala 2012 Vs. ‘Dancing With the Stars’ (PHOTOS)
It may have been the ‘Oscars of the East,’ but more than a few gowns at the Met Gala on Monday night resembled those on TV’s ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ From Rooney Mara to Sarah Jessica Parker, see the fashion go neck and neck.
Met Gala at the Costume Institute brought out its fair share of dazzle. There was Anna Wintour in a custom-made white Prada column dress, Carine Roitfeld in a black Givenchy suit coat, and Tom Ford in an unsurprisingly perfect tuxedo. But the party is called the “Oscars of the East” for a reason: here’s a night where, unlike the Academy Awards, guests aren’t afraid to showcase a little bit of sartorial derring-do. And dare they did. Some of the dresses were, well, so out there that they resembled another event airing Monday night: on ABC. There was some jazzy white fringe, a wax-exposing slit, and a floral number worthy of the cha-cha. From Sarah Jessica Parker to Dancing With the Stars Rooney Mara, see our gallery of Met dresses that go neck and neck with Dancing With the Stars.
