Costume Institute Met Gala 2012

This year’s theme was “Schiaparelli & Prada: Impossible Conversations.” (Click here to see my recap of last year’s gala, which honored the late great Alexander McQueen.)

These are the red carpet looks that I liked, and some that made a statement, like Kirsten Dunst’s Rodarte-designed Santa Clause-ish ensemble, designer Marc Jacobs’ interesting look, and Hailee Steinfeld’s age-appropriate appearance.

Who do you think #rocked the red carpet?
