Met Gala 2012 Trend Report


This time, the Met Gala was successful (fashion-wise) and the stars walked down the red carpet wearing the latest trends. There were a few blunders here and there, but would would an event even be without a few faux pas for us to not talk about? BORING! That's what! 

So here are the trends that celebrities channeled while walking and posing for the cameras.. 

Back in Black

Guess what? Black is the new 'black' and no one can change that no matter what. Many opt for black to look slimmer and theirs always this mysterious aura about it. And it never fails to disappoint, usually..
