Met Gala 2012: Who Wore What

Brooklyn Decker, in a custom Tory Burch gown, accessorized with gorgeous House of Lavande earrings.

The Met Gala is the fashion event of the the year, and for 2012 we saw a bevy of gorgeous celebs in metallic dresses, peplum and feathers, low cut backs, deep colored lips and of course plenty of Prada ascending the famous red staircase. The event this year, honored the Costume Institute's exhibit Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations.
The interest on the Met Gala this year was so great that for the first time, red carpet arrivals were live-streamed on the Web sites of Vogue, the Met and Amazon, the exhibition's sponsor, for the entire duration.
