Stylish Stars Celebrate Alexander McQueen at 2011 Met Gala

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in BurberryNew York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine – Hollywood’s A-list were out in full fashionable force last night to celebrate the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 2011 Costume Institute Benefit—and so were the big names who dressed them.

This year’s exhibit, entitled “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty,” pays tribute to the late British designer, who took his own life last February. Fellow Brit Christopher Bailey of Burberry dressed several of the evening’s stars, including actress and model Rosie Huntington Whiteley—who donned a custom rose silk gown and python clutch—actor Jason Statham, TV host Ryan Seacrest and girlfriend Julianne Hough and noted fashion photographer Mario Testino, who shot the label’s latest ad campaign. For British models Jourdan Dunn, wearing a custom gold silk gown with a black leather wrap belt, and Cara Delevingne, in a gunmetal silk gown with silver beading, Burberry was also their designer of choice.

Gucci was another favorite of the night’s top celebs, with power couple Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony opting for looks from the house. Lopez went for drama with a fuschia silk chiffon gown and organza floral shrug from the F/W11 runway, while Anthony looked dapper in a dinner jacket and trousers from Gucci’s Made to Measure program. Mary J. Blige chose a sexy one-of-a-kind column gown with a jewel-encrusted harness, while actress Evan Rachel Wood wore a plunging plum evening gown from Gucci Premiere, the label’s couture line.

Ralph Lauren hosted a pregnant Jessica Alba, wearing a custom lamé strapless gown and vintage collection necklace in her hair, and husband Cash Warren, as well as the newly engaged Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill and his model fiancée Lily Aldridge, who was stunning in a champagne silk gown with chiffon train.

Zac Posen dressed Christina Ricci in a gothic-inspired custom couture gown with ombre and lace detailing, the designer’s personal homage to McQueen. Posen joined the starlet on the red carpet, looking every inch the star himself in a classic tux and bowtie.
