Kristen Seeks Her Fashion Identity at the Costume Institute Gala

No Beginner's Luck[JustJared]
So obviously not the best choice of dress for Kristen Stewart at the 2010 Costume Institute Institute Gala Benefit. This year's theme was American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity and though I would kill to actually visit the Met this time of year to view the exhibition, I'll settle for the red carpet fashion of the celebs and models.

It was Kristen's first time and though it looks like she didn't have any beginners luck, I hope in the future, if she actually gets invited again, that she'll make a much much better impression. *fingers crossed*


I love you Kristen. I really do, but you've had better days. The Oscars for one, is looking like a really bright spot. And no wonder you love strapless minidresses, you look really good in them. I wish the tulle bottom on her Chanel dress and the top was pulled down a bit to make it longer cause you could rock the minidress to eternity and at least you'd look comfortable in it. I appreciate the hair and make up effort and the drive to do something different, but this was just well, something else.


Anne really does live up to those Princess movies she made looking so fairy-tale-esque in her Valentino gown. Woman would look good on her wedding day for sure. I know this ain't white, but she's glowing like a bride. So stunning.


Camilla just can't do any wrong and she steps out in a fire engine red Jason Wu gown. Girl is elegance and class personified and she just blows me away ALL THE TIME. Stunning doesn't cut, she is just on fire.


Emilie knows how to wear a dress for her petite frame and she looked just as elegant as the long gown wearers in her Valentino mini-dress which is from the same collection that Camilla wore a dress from for the Art of Elysiums Gala cause of the bell skirt detail. And you know what else they've got in common? They both look fantastic. Emilie is just so adorable.


Burberry sure loves their model because Emma looked beautiful in her white Burberry gown that didn't make her look old despite it being a long gown. This girl just carries off the dress really well with her sophisticated air. She's come a long way since Hermione Granger. So grown up!


I'm not usually a fan of mid-length dresses cause they feel awkward to me, but Rachel really carries her Louis Vuitton dress well. I love the print and the cut and just how Rachel looks really confident and happy in it. I kind wish I could pull this off.

And because I really am no fashion critic, I have to say, last year's seemed more interesting and the year before that definitely brought out the crazy. But isn't that that the Costume Institute Gala is supposed to be anyway? People not playing it safe with fashion. I'm no fashionista, but it felt like a safe year in general. Till next year then!
