The Metroplitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala: Celebrating the American Woman

Hello lovelies!
I just wanted to post some of my favourite looks from the Met Ball, which took place on Monday, May 3, 2010. The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala puts on this event once a year. It is a great place for fashion industry greats to gather and celebrate with one another. This year's theme was looking at and celebrating the American Woman. All images via, if they are not allowed on The Look Book, then off they go!
Okay... so there were about 100 pictures of the Met Ball on, with I URGE you to look at... and I originally made a much longer post, but then I decided this dress was the most amazing, I wanted to focus on what I thought was the best dress, and why. This is actress (yes, I STILL call them actresses, I do not think they should have changed that silly rule), Camilla Belle,with fashion designer (and Michelle Obama favourite) Jason Wu. Camilla is wearing a Jason Wu gown, which I absolutely LOVE. I love the beautiful red colour and the breathtakingly elegant simple design of this classic gown. The low neckline on the dress highlights Camilla Belle's beautiful decolletage. I adore this look. What do you guys think?
I would love to know!

simply elegant! it looks so... light. sometimes long dresses can look really heavy and stiff. this one looks like it would move well. a dream to wear!
