MET Gala: Style Verdict

The MET Gala is my favourite red carpet event of the year.  This year titled "A Magical Tribute to Alexander McQueen", we of course saw  lot of amazing McQueen archives and current season pieces on some of the most beautiful people in fashion. Another name worn by many attendees, to my surprise, was Stella McCartney. Sported by the likes of superstars Madonna, Rihanna and Eva Mendes, Ms McCartney must be gleaming that night.

I of course follow with Another Angle's Lists! Read on...
